I have an EQS AMG 53 that comes with hyperscreen. But I just cannot get gesture control to work.

If I point at the hyperscreen with two fingers in a "V" like you are supposed to do, I get two blue lines that appear at the top edge of the centre screen on the left and right, so the car recognises I and doing the gesture. But nothing happens. I have gone in to favourites and tried setting all sorts of different actions as the "gesture controlled" one, but literally nothing happens.

Anyone managed to get this to work?

I can control the right passenger lights (in US) by pointing that direction, and with some practice I can get the roof shade screen to retract by pointing and then moving my hand back. Never tried the fingers in a "V" before though.

Managed to sort this V gesture. I was putting my hand in the wrong place - too close to the screen. So now I know you need to make a V with your first two fingers, and hold your hand palm down with the V outstretched so your hand is over the centre console at the height of the centre of your screen but away from the screen - say 8" to 10" in front of the rear view mirror. You also need to hold your V for about 2 seconds. It now works perfectly - I have set up my gesture controlled favourite to turn my dashcam on which is now livable with as it won't start automatically so this is close to automatic. But I may change it to raise the suspension which is something I need to do regularly.

you have to hold the V pose on top of the cup holder compartment and not close to the screen. I now have it working every time.
