Mercedes-Benz is pioneering digital innovation in the automotive world as they integrate with the Apple Watch to create a seamless door-to-door navigation for Mercedes-Benz customers and their vehicles.
The new MB Companion App allows Mercedes-Benz owners to enter their destination on the Apple Watch or on their iPhone to first initiate walking directions to their car. Once in the car and the ignition is on, the app will sync with the in-built navigation system to reveal directions to your chosen destination. Once the driver has parked, the app will then give walking directions to their final destination.
At the moment only the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class and S-Class vehicles equipped with COMAND Online will be able to integrate with the MB companion App in autumn this year, but more models will follow soon.
As expected there are already plans for new features including being able to find vehicle information such as the fuel level, maintenance code, and odometer readings. We think integrating this great product into the owner’s Automyze account could be a great enhancement.
