Newbie here just trying to understand my EQC... I have

All well and good but in the manual it says I should have D(auto) too which optimises itself to your driving style.
Cannot find this mode using the paddle switches, so my only conclusions are
A) the manual is outdated and there are only now 4 driving modes.
B) It is only available on the AMG line and I have the sport version (cheap 馃槅)
Any ideas peeps?

From the on line guide it does seem as if you have to pull and hold the right hand paddle shift for it to appear ie it will not appear if you keep scrolling through the modes one after the other. the on line manual says the car defaults to D on startup. Have a go and see if it makes a difference. I only ever saw D or D- or D鈥 when I had a test car but know D auto exists the need to hold the rh paddle shift maybe why I never discovered it by accident馃槈 am sure this is a basic function not associated with trim level with the EQC coming preloaded whatever trim with some of the clever tech to aid range. Let us know if it works.

Well
The D [Auto] should appear when you hold the left or right paddle shift for more than 3 sec. The auto mode uses actually the ECO driving mode (they say) intelligence where it takes advantage of navigation information (works with route guidence turned off or on) safety tools and speed sign recognition to control how hard the recuperation mode should be. Which means when you hit a city zone or roundabout and you take your foot off the speed while driving 80km/h the recuperation will be harder down to 50km/h which would be the limit in the city zone. So when driving on the highway and taking the foot off the speeder for a few seconds the the recuperation will not be that hard as you are properly driving within the speeding limit.

I personally had problems in the start with this until i did a manual download of the my map-zone from within the Mercedes me portal. (As mine apparently was set default to Germany..) now it works pretty well for the city zone and it says when to take off the food from the pedal.

In Australia we have NISSAN Type 1 charge locations loaded into our MBUX mixed in with a few MB Type 2 locations. These are only updated every 18 months with the map upgrades meaning you don't rely on them. . This means that the D-Auto function would guide you to charger stations that don't fit the car. If you use a Type 1 to Type 2 adapter it voids your warranty. So, in Australia, MB disabled the D-Auto function. We do have full auto park though.
