The Mercedes connect me standard services can take the strain off you in all sorts of ways – for example by helping with vehicle diagnostics or if you suffer a breakdown or accident. In such cases all relevant vehicle data are sent to the appropriate place and, if necessary, further measures also triggered. This might mean calling your service partner to book your next service appointment, or summoning rapid help from roadside assistance or emergency services. The services available include Maintenance Management, Telediagnostics, Breakdown Management, Accident Recovery and the Mercedes-Benz emergency call system.
The optional Remote Online Services allow you to control your Mercedes very simply from your smartphone. Change your settings or see vehicle information from the comfort of your sofa or from wherever you happen to be. Forgotten where you parked? The Parked Vehicle Locator, Vehicle Tracker and Geofencing* services tell you where you’ve parked or if your vehicle leaves a defined area. The Remote Online Services also show if you need to refuel soon (or recharge your electric vehicle).
* Estimated introduction mid-2015
