Am I allowed to ask how to access the hidden engineering menu in the Comand-APS?
Okay, I am probably allowed to ask but will anybody answer?

I don't really want to buy the info from e-bay.

Thanks

Simon

IIRC this was discontinued in the APS i.e. there isn't one?

There most certainly is one:D

Of course there is STAR aswell but there is an engineering menu on pretty much every Comand APS that is accessible if you know how to get to it. On some W211 units it is restricted in what you can do which is where STAR comes in;)

They all have set up info on a menu too, but it is a service mode and not for end users 99% of this type of gear I set up via a service menu, ie laser gain , focus,off set etc

Alfie,

Do you know how to get into the engineer menu on a Comand APS fitted in a W211 2004 E320?

If so will you PM me?

Thanks...

There is little that you can do other than read out current data, you would need STAR to change anything
