A growing array of Internet-based apps help you stay in touch and up-to-date.
The second generation of mbrace® brings the Internet right to your Mercedes-Benz. An ever-growing variety of apps help you stay connected to your world from the road — whether it's with weather, Yelp! restaurant reviews and Facebook friends, or movie times, flight information and financial news. Mercedes-Benz Apps have all been specially designed to minimize driver distraction and simplify driving-related tasks like navigation. And since they can be updated over the air, your mbrace system keeps pace with your changing world. (Disclaimer)
A powerful new engine in your Mercedes-Benz: Google Local Search.
You already rely on Google's reliable and virtually unlimited search capabilities on your computer and smartphone. Now you can have the same power in your car. Search for any destination on the Web and navigate directly to it, or save it for later. Call the number in the listing. And see photos of where you're going on the in-dash screen, before you even start your journey.
Hungry on the road? Get advice from the locals.
With candid reviews from actual customers, Yelp offers a uniquely convenient way to find a place to eat, from fine dining to a quick meal on the road. Yelp also offers reviews in hundreds of other business categories, all searchable by your location, route or destination. And mbrace2 makes getting there easier, too. There's no need to enter an address. Just pick a place and be on your way.
With Facebook in your car, there's always something to like.
When friends check in at someplace fun and post "Who wants to join us?" on Facebook, mbrace2 is ready to go. No need to look it up, either, just choose a destination and your navigation system has it. A selection of pre-formatted status updates lets your friends know you're en route, even using the navigation system's data to let them know how soon you'll be there. And when you get there, you can check in for yourself, and see who else is there, before you leave your car.
Because every day is full speed ahead.
