Great Site. Thank you.

Just purchased a 2018 GLE 43 Coupe today from my local dealership. Haven't had a Mercedes Benz since 2010 (back in college had a cheapie C class)...
So far, really enjoy the car. Pretty cheap price for my perceived value. My wife drives a Tesla Model P100D and I have a 2016 i8 as my weekend ride.
That being said, had a few questions.

Does anyone know how to activate the auto drive feature? (I will RTFM probably later this week)...maybe this has been discussed before? For the Tesla, it's more of a cruise control that helps you "stay in your lane." The dealership I purchased it at offered to show me--but after 3 hours of an intense negotiation session, felt like just trying to figure it out myself.

Also, has anyone used the "pre-wiring" package to install video displays for the two rear seats? I have two young children...this is where my last lease return--the Honda Odyssey Touring Elite was awesome (built in).

Thank you for your help in advance. Happy to be a part of this forum.

Congrats on getting a GLE.

Haven't seen coverage of the GLE from Mercedes Benz but often they're great with owner educational videos. Here's one on the S-Class that might help in this situation...

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the new car. I wouldn't expect it to take long to learn all the nuances of your new vehicle. Rather than getting into running wiring for video displays have you considered just getting headrest mounts for iPads?
