Smartkey Starter® for Mercedes-Benz

You Key to Comfort®! Smartkey Starter® is the only plug and play remote start solution for Mercedes-Benz automobiles. With expandability options such as smartphone integration and extended range antennas, no other product even comes close.

Escort and K40 Cluster Integration

We’ve taken the world’s greatest radar detectors and seamlessly interfaced them with select luxury vehicles. Alerts and settings are displayed on your instrument cluster’s LCD, and operation is achieved through existing buttons on your steering wheel. For Mercedes-Benz models equipped with Distronic Plus, our interface also prevents false readings which normally make installations impossible in these vehicles. Our Escort Radar Integration products have no visible modules, no cutting wires, Distronic Plus, and an installation so seamless it could be mistaken for factory!

Video in Motion Interfaces

Many Mercedes-Benz vehicles come standard with feature-rich multimedia head-units that can display video, trip data, and other auxiliary sources. To the dismay of many, these features are disabled when the vehicle is shifted into drive. Our VIM products can not only lift these restrictions, but also enable new features like on-demand control of the factory backup camera.


The Mercedes-Benz Sprinter is one of the most versatile vans built today. The Sprinter can be configured for passenger transportation, hauling cargo, or even as a luxury RV. Mid City Engineering has designed several products to make the best van…even better!

Made in the USA

All design, engineering, prototyping, and production takes place at our headquarters in Chicago. We individually test every unit that leaves our warehouse, ensuring a smooth installation that saves you time and money.
