An unfamiliar city, winding streets – and where on earth did you park earlier? Your smartphone has the answer. It can locate your parked vehicle within a radius of 1 mile and show you the way back to it.

Global Search

A search function that thinks beyond the actual search

While you’re on the road and looking for a place to eat, your Mercedes-Benz goes beyond finding a restaurant. When you find a perfect spot for dinner, you can start your route navigation (if equipped) or call ahead and reserve a table, all directly from the Search results. So now you have everything planned for the evening. You just need to decide what to eat.

You start your search, as usual. The list of results is enriched with intelligent suggestions relevant to your search. Depending on your search, these suggestions can be making a phone call, loading a route in the navigation system (if equipped) or playing a song. This way, you proceed directly from the search to the next step, without having to switch between apps or functions.

Online Routing

Real-time data for the best route

Many ways lead to your destination. Your Mercedes-Benz knows the best way to get there. For this purpose, the navigation system is provided with real-time traffic data.

You can choose a different route either by simply selecting it in the navigation system or by driving directly along the new route in order to activate it in the system.

Satellite images

More details for more clarity

You would like to know in advance what to expect at your destination. Does the nearest rest area have nice surroundings? Where exactly is the entrance to the hotel parking lot? At which building entrance is the best parking spot for an upcoming appointment? A look at the navigation map will display this information.

To use the Satellite images, simply set the appropriate icon in the navigation settings. The Satellite view will then be superimposed on the standard navigation map. To explore new landscapes, towns or cities from above, you can also move around the map as you please.
