Mercedes-Benz is introducing Car-to-X Communication to our roads which enables the exchange of real-time information between vehicles. Early warning is sent to drivers so they can take appropriate action to avoid critical situations.

Car-to-X Communication:
• Early information about road hazards
• Automatic detection of hazards, break-downs, and accidents (requires a Drive Kit Plus firmware version from September 2013 or later)
• Report hazards from View Map or pull and hold the COMAND controller Down to show the Car-to-X menu at the bottom of the screen.
• Share feedback to confirm hazards reported nearby

Also featured in this version:
• The latest Garmin maps are now available for free download directly from your iPhone! We recommend connecting to a Wi-Fi network for faster download speeds.
• Last-Mile Navi shows you the way, even after leaving your car! The Digital DriveStyle app will automatically give you walking directions on the iPhone once you’ve parked near your destination.
• View Today’s Agenda with iOS Calendar integration to get an overview of your day from the road.

Drive Kit Plus software updates:
• Some features such as Car-to-X and Siri integration require the latest version of Drive Kit Plus software.

    Hi I need a UAE map !!! Why there is no one ???

  • Iphone 5

    by Nur O

    When will an iPhone 5 version be available?

  • Hey, how long have you been behind here?

    by Edition1 Owner

    To whom it may concern, I am writing this review to complain about the delayed release of this app for the iPhone 5. A big selling point of the brand new CLA 250 is its inclusion of a sophisticated interface between the iPhone and car. It is even spelled out on the sales guide that 'as your fingers caress the stitching of the steering wheel, your body and mind will connect with the car in a whole new way using an unparalleled experience of iPhone interfacing.' Ironically this is not available for my iPhone 5 and for the last 2 months, I've been told you are working "full speed". Now hold on here -- don't you think the sales market for this car targets a tech savy youth generation? Didn't you have sales training meetings with dealership heads explaining the new techniques that will be used to sell this car to the youth market. Well what member of the youth market would be purchasing this brand new car and still own a dated iPhone -- Especially an iPhone 4 that is now antiquated by 2 new generations. Mercedes, please review your iPhone software developers determination to completing this project and crack that whip! Best, Young & Discouraged Purchaser

  • No iPhone 5 support?

    by Monsieur Lacenaire

    With the iPhone 5S being announced this week, this app isn't even close to being current. Disappointing for the app to be so far behind the times!

  • Crashes on launch

    by Dudley Doggins

    Crashes immediately 100% of time on my 4s. Useless. Buddy tried it on his 5, runs. Needs landscape mode please. I'd pay for this if it ran & had landscape.

  • Crashes

    by MaHoS

    Crashes as soon as it starts on a 4S. Useless
