Interior: about controls and features

There are some controls / buttons inside which I'd like to understand. See the pictures.

  • Roof panel: Differential locks: There are buttons for front and rear. What's about the center lock?
  • Below, there are two buttons: ESC is Electronic Stability Control, I guess. But what is HDC?
  • On the steering wheel, the "Res+" button is likely the button to restore cruise mode or increase the cruise speed, I think.
  • And there  is a "CNL" button left to the cruise control buttons. What does this mean?
  • And finally: has anybody yet heard what the "toot" sounds like?

Centre Lock is manual and on the high/low shifter next to the gear stick.
  • Below, there are two buttons: ESC is Electronic Stability Control, I guess. But what is HDC?
Hill Descent Control
  • On the steering wheel, the "Res+" button is likely the button to restore cruise mode or increase the cruise speed, I think.
Yes it both Resumes and increases speed. Standard for cruise controls.
  • And there  is a "CNL" button left to the cruise control buttons. What does this mean?
Cancel. Also standard for cruise controls.
  • And finally: has anybody yet heard what the "toot" sounds like?
Nope!

Thank you. :)

> Standard for cruise controls

It's a bit different on my 22 yr old Mercedes: There is lever, pulling is restore, pushing forward is cancel. Lever up and down is increase and decrease and 'set' at the same time. But true, functionally same concept .

As the lever doesn't have labels, this mnemonics are new to me.
(And as a not being a native english speaker, they aren't obvious to me)

Yes, sorry, when I say standard, I didn't mean all, I just meant that's one of the standard ways of doing cruise control. I've had Honda, Porsche, Audi and Subaru that were like that, but I think I recall what you say about Merc - a friend has one with a lever. (And a park brake pedal - so a bit non-standard!)

No problem, I think I got you right :)

> a park brake pedal - so a bit non-standard
Yes, a typical Mercedes feature which I like very much as you can put a lot of force on the park brake.

By the way: Amusingly, Porsche of all things has something 'non-standard' in common with the old Defender: The ignition lock is on the left side. :cool:

Another miracle: On the picture, there is a 230V outlet in front of the back seats.

An option? A fake? An empty pre-equipping?

I would have thought you wire in your chosen inverter and this is a convenient outlet.Those optional switches on the roof console have a function!

There was talk early on about a 2000w inverter, but it seems odd that it would be standard. Perhaps the wiring is standard, and the inverter itself will be an option. Or maybe the wiring will be an option too (like it is with the overhead panels).

Or wiring to suit a 2000w max inverter?
