Default Mercedes-Benz’s SPLITVIEW allows the driver and passenger to watch two things simulta



Quote:
Mercedes-Benz announced today that it will begin offering a new display screen that allows the driver and front passenger to view different programs at the same time.



Basically, while the driver is checking out the navigation instructions the front passenger can sit back and watch a movie on the same display. The new SPLITVIEW feature will appear on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz S-Class when it arrives in the summer of 2009.


The new technology, developed by Mercedes-Benz and Bosch, is a part of the COMAND display system which features an 8-inch monitor display that is backlighted with active matrix color. A filter masks the display and divides it in such a way that depending on the seating position, only the pixels making up one or other image can be seen.



We think this a great feature for those drivers who hate listening to their significant other go on and on about something while their driving. Oh and you can also give your passenger some headphones if you don’t want to be distracted by what they’re watching.

Default Mercedes-Benz Splitview technology to make U.S. debut at LA show

Quote:
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has long been a hotbed for automotive innovation, and the large German sedan will continue that tradition at the 2009 Los Angeles Auto Show. Following its world debut last December, Mercedes-Benz’ Splitview technology will make its U.S. debut next month.

Co-developed between Mercedes-Benz and Bosch, the Splitview technology allows for dual-use of the S-Class’ center-mounted LCD screen. The system allows the driver to have access to the vehicle’s navigation system while the front seat passenger can watch a DVD on the very same screen.

Mercedes-Benz’ Splitview technology was originally slated to hit the market a few months ago, but was ultimately delayed. Mercedes failed to give a reason for the delay, but it was likely tied to legality concerns over the system. In August, Jaguar design head Ian Callum stated the system was “technically illegal”. Apparently, the NHTSA has given the technology a pass.

The Jaguar XJ is available with a similar dual-view technology in other parts of the world, but the British automaker has yet to announce if its version of the technology will be following the S-Class’ to the United States

how about we wait until we get home to watch tv? what could you possibly miss in everyday driving....and if you have to go on a long drive....why not you know...TALK to your family and interact with each other instead of putting on headphones and being shut off from the world

The dash board is way high, blocking the driver's view. And he is driving directly onto incoming traffic, check out other vehicle head lights.
