Mercedes-Benz launches their latest innovation – and it’s not a car

In today’s world, luxury is anything that lets you fit more living into your life and can be summed up in one word – time.

We cannot truly ‘manage time’ as time is finite and once expended can never be replaced.

While we can still make back lost money or find new ventures if current ones don’t work out, this is simply not the case with time.

With this in mind, Mercedes-Benz has come up with an innovation that isn’t a car, but an entire suite of mobile services built into an app called Mercedes me connect.

Simply put, the Mercedes me connect app links to your mobile and provides you with a list of features that connects to your car.

In effect, the features in the app is designed to help you work your way around life’s little challenges that would otherwise waste your precious time.

You can’t change the number of hours in a day, but you can fill them more efficiently, such as using Mercedes me connect to get you straight back to your parked car, rather than wandering around looking for it.

Mercedes me connect helps you further with the latest features available when purchasing one of its newer vehicles:

Live Traffic information

Johannesburg and Cape Town has been rated as some of the most congested cities in the world, according to the 2017 TomTom Global Traffic Index.

With daily commutes averaging out at a minimum of 2 hours during peak hours on a good day, taking up even more of the little time you have in a day, you can’t afford to go without live traffic information.

Mercedes me connect’s live traffic information service gives you real-time traffic data that is dynamically updated.

The system immediately picks up traffic jams and continuously calculates the best route with the shortest travelling time.

Concierge Service

The Concierge service included in the app is designed to assist with inquiries related to sending a route or point of interest to the navigation system of your car.

Since our busy lives don’t always allow time to browse the web for travel information, the Mercedes me connect app is ideal as it recommends and reserves restaurants and hotel rooms, and more, while you’re on the go.

Vehicle Tracker  

No one needs to add the stress and inconvenience of a stolen car to their already hectic schedules, and so Mercedes-Benz is now offering vehicle tracking.

Sometimes you simply need to take matters into your own hands as third-party tracking for stolen vehicles may feel on the slow side when you’re in a panic.

The Vehicle Tracker service in your Mercedes me connect app enables you to locate your moving vehicle via GPS simply by clicking on the app on your smartphone.

Built-in geo-fencing informs the customer when the vehicle enters and leaves a pre-defined area on the appurtenant map, so you can take action in real-time.

There are many other features included in the app that further help to improve your quality of life, and these include emergency call system, digital vehicle key, remote parking pilot, and remote door locking and unlocking, among others.

Individually, each feature represents a simple convenience, but combined they put the power of modern luxury at your fingertips.

All in all, with the Connect Services from Mercedes me, you can interface with your car wherever you are.

Whether you need a faster route on your way to work or find where you left your car at a conference, the full suite of services with Mercedes me allows you to solve everyday challenges.
