MBrace Hold Music

We are using the free trail MBrace a good bit on the new ML and I have 3 comments/questions....

1) The electronic squeaks that occur upon pushing the magic button are absolutely ear shattering. Attendant voice volume cannot be lessened ......MBrace says it is a safety feature? Hello...I can't hear you anymore!!!! Well it does work a darn site better than the patented nodding off alert feature....hello!

2) The MBrace hold music goes on FOREVER and it is hugely garbled and 70s electronic sounding. Reminds me of old time porn video music (not that I ever watched any with the sound turned up....boom chica chica boom clank clank!) Hey MB.....maybe some mellow jazz or relaxing classical music instead? Seems to fit the whole upscale image a bit better.

3) How can this service possibly be worth the money unless you crash and need a rescue or the directions to the hearing aid store?

OK Gregg - time to use your new membership in mercedesbenzadvisors.com

I'm older so I drive fast as I have less time left to waste.

Hey Gregg - how long is your average hold time?

We've made maybe 10-15 calls in the 3 months since getting the vehicle...mostly on Saturdays because that is when we use the vehicle most.....hold time is usualy 2-3 minutes....up to around 5 minutes once or twice. Not too bad I guess.....but my overall impression is that MBrace Plus is probably not worth the cost for us.
