New Mercedes Smartphone App on the Way
Are you revered by your co-workers for your ability to Bluetooth pair your phone to your car and wirelessly stream some music? You may be able to take things to the next level with the new MBrace app from Mercedes, currently for iPhones and BlackBerrys. With MBrace you will actually be able to use your cell phone as your car's key fob. The program may also locate various destinations via the phone's Internet and will transmit any selected destination to the car's navigation system wirelessly. The app will also allow you to quickly be connected with a wide variety of emergency or customer services. You can feel like James Bond and remotely start or locate your car from the app with its internal GPS. The downside to this system is that it will be not free, following its six month trial, though it will still remain upgradable to newer versions.
