The GLE is always online. You can talk to it like to your Apple Siri system. By saying "Hey Mercedes" you are activating the MBUX assistant. The GLE then ask back "How can I help you". If you are saying "I am hungry" the system searches restaurants and you get the results on the 12,3 inch display. After you have chosen the restaurant the navigation starts to this new destination.
