Mercedes-Benz has updated the next-generation Mercedes me connect app, which offers an improved user experience and functionality along with new features, available for MY-2019 vehicles and newer.
The next-generation Mercedes me connect app has been redesigned from the ground up and serves as a mobile extension of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, Mercedes said. New with this version is the ability to now pair most vehicles and activate services directly through the app, without requiring a separate visit to a dealership.
The Mercedes me connect app offers many connected-car features, including Remote Engine Start, Remote Door Lock and Unlock, and Vehicle Status, the automaker said. This is paired with additional vehicle data such as mileage, fuel level, tire pressure and fluid levels.
Mercedes me connect can also facilitate a remote diagnostic test which provides a dealership service technician with the ability to remotely retrieve diagnostic data to help troubleshoot issues, the automaker said. The Mercedes me connect app also includes map and navigation features that allow a customer to find their desired destination on the app and then directly send that location to the vehicle’s navigation system.
Customers can also expect to see additional updates with more features available in the coming months.
The Mercedes me connect app was first introduced in 2016 as a connected-car application for both Android and iOS devices that enabled vehicle owners to manage many different aspects of their vehicle from virtually anywhere.
