Mercedes-Benz has just released the updated version of its mbrace app for the iPhone, which gives you your own personal concierge service.
Partnering up with Hughes Telematics to bring you this app, Mercedes’ mbrace comes with the same host of safety and convenience features – finding your car in a parking lot, locking and unlocking the doors – as well as the Mercedes-Benz Concierge service, which lets you take their mbrace services with you when you leave your vehicle.
The Concierge service does so much so you don’t have to. It can access your location information to provide you with relevant entertainment recommendations, restaurant locations, directions, traffic updates and more. This destination information can then be sent directly from the concierge to an in-vehicle navigation system. It also lets you save multiple accounts in the log-in screen and assign nicknames. This makes it easy and quick to access multiple mbrace accounts from one device.
The mbrace also comes with enhanced Roadside Assistance. When you make the call to Roadside Assistance, your location information is transmitted to the Mercedes-Benz Roadside Assistance Center. This provides a more efficient and accurate service when you need it most. For those times when the vehicle may not be accessible, doesn’t have power, or is in an unknown location, the mobile application allows Mercedes-Benz to pinpoint exactly where to send assistance.
