Morning all. Have set two users up on app and car biometrics. In the main it's working well.

But when I attempt to get in the car after the wife has used it, it's crushed knee time. Once you have crow bared yourself in, I can touch the fingerprint button and everything slides nicely into place. But getting in less than easy.

Question is, is there a way to get your seat and settings into place before getting in the car? Key fob open? Touch button on handle? Etc? Would be nice get that operating better.

Assuming you have the seat memory set to #1 and your wife has #2, you should be able to select the #1 position before attempting to get in the car. One nice thing about the EQS is it does not require holding the memory button down until the seat reaches the end of its travel like previously MBs I have owned.

Hi Lazarus. Yes the memory programs are punched in and indeed when you do fingerprint touch inside it sets to position.

But I was wondering if a specific key fob would replicate the M1 or M2 functions. Like it does on a BMW before you have the door open.

Or even if the finger print on handle can do the same. The key fob open and recall of memory position seems the most logical and easiest. But not sure that is a function on board the EQS.

Also have this problem. The memory buttons requier that you have activated the profile. Then you can press a memory button. According to the manual the profiles should follow the keys also but it seems like they do not. Really miss the linking to the key as my wife is much shorter than me and I have to squeeze in to activate the profile first.

Doesn't activating the easy exit/entry feature leave the driver seat in a position that allows you to enter without squeezing in to your wife's seat setting?

In our situation I am the only driver and only one profile exists. The easy exit/entry feature is adequate for this simple case. My wife does not drive. On the passenger side she uses M1 for riding and M2 to mimic the easy exit/entry position. When she forgets to choose M2 to exit, she can press it before entering on the next trip.

Exactly that. If you just jump in, you get squashed by a wife size MB steering wheel! Not ideal.

Key activated profile you would think was a modest ask and not so complicated.

How do you do that Lazaru5? Is that a car option that sets upon exit to a preferred memory position? That would do the job .... set to largest position then adjust when specific user profile loaded.

Would be useful to know and probably solves mine and Robert-san's situation.

A key press option aka BMW style would still be good.

Easy entry is wierd as it is moved back on the EQS. On wife's EQE it tilts the seat back up.

EQS also pulls the seat back that much so it can get harder to get out.
Wasn't aware of easy entry/exit Robert .... just looking at the manual now.

So this lifts the wheel up and seat back? And this happens when you power the car up and down? Then the biometric sets the proper seat position? That sounds useful for sure.

You can choose what of the functions it should change at power on/off. It can also lower the window a little. (I have not been able to figure out how that makes it easier to get in or out of the car.)

But! If you turn off the car and do not exit. Then when you press On it will not return to memorized position. You have to press memory for it to return. I have reported this as a bug to MB.

Not sure if this idea helps....

After you set up two profiles, position the seats and steering wheel for Driver 1 in both profiles as M1. Then move seat and wheel for Driver 2 and save as M2, also in both profiles. I believe this approach allows both drivers to get into the car using their designated M button without having to worry about which profile is active.
