Mercedes Splitview


When the revised S Class comes out this summer, it will get a new option;Splitview.
Where the image on the video screen is projected in 2 different places.
One for the driver, one for the passenger. Both coming from the same unit on the dash.
So the driver can see the GPS map while the passenger is watching the news, or a movie.

Do we really need that kind of distractions while driving? Are people that bored?
Do we need to be staring at a screen and be entertained at all time????

Are we becoming like the humans in Wall -E????

  1. Well it seems technology is finally catching w/ me. I had TV’s installed in both my cars w/ local programming capability for some years now. I love watching Good Morning America everyday on my way to work everyday.

  2. yes.

    yes.

    and…yes.

    bring me my super-slurpee, now, robot! where’s my hover chair?

    you…mean…the sky…isn’t…BLUE!?

  3. What kind of distraction is the driver getting that they can’t get in any other vehicle, Vince? The driver can’t see the passengers movie?

    Did you not read or understand the full description???

    “Will the S-NoClass get a “Class” upgrade?”

    You mean the classiest of the full bore sedans? Moron.

  4. What the heck is wrong with people that they only get fulfillment staring at a tube anymore? Is personal interaction and the creativity of entertaining friends beyond the grasp of people these days? I’ve been on virtually non-stop cross-country drives with many different people and never turned on the radio or popped in a CD or iPod and we were never bored once during the whole thing. It’s called “using your mind.”

  5. Waupaca County, Wisconsin just passed a law to ban cell phone use in cars. Now, what with all this new-fangeled technology like the split-screen dashboard TV; I guess they’ll just have to ban the use of Mercedes S-Class cars altogether! Hot Dammn!

  6. Does that means that I cannot watch the movie if I’m sitting behind the driver?

    Mom! go sit in the back please!

  7. Ah, there will be two headrest monitors for the backseat passengers. Wow, technology has come along way!

  8. instead of being distracted by the TV in the driver’s seat, now the driver will try to unbuckle and tilt/extend his whole body to the passenger side to check out the funny comedian that’s making his passenger’s side split. then he will rear-end someone on the highway, and his whole body will flies through the windshield and be impaled in 7 different places by the carbon steel rebar that the truck in front is carrying.

  9. The better question is, Do we even need this ancient German marque? Their cars are so out of step with the times and seem like relics from a gone by era.

  10. People who can afford these are not weak and stupid and are able to do more than one thing at a time.

  11. You people are ALL stupid.

    READ THE DESCRIPTION!!!! The DRIVER cannot see what the PASSENGER sees.

    I do see that reading comprehension has completely gone down the drain.

  12. You people are ALL stupid.

    It doesn’t say that at all. Go back and read it again.
