Mercedes Search & Send - new navigation technology

Posted on Friday, Sep 07 2007 @ 09:35 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Mercedes unveils their new Search & Send, a convenient way to plan your trip destinations. Search & Send allows you to send directions from Google Maps and Yahoo Local Maps to your car's GPS system.
Using familiar Yahoo! Local Maps and Google Maps web sites from the comfort of your home or office computer, you can search for a destination online, then send it right to your Mercedes-Benz.

Once you're in your vehicle, simply push the i-button and your destination will be downloaded directly to the vehicle's navigation system via your Mercedes-Benz Tele Aid System. You'll be prompted to either start route guidance immediately or save the information for later use in your navigation memory. Instead of spending time inputting data into your navigation system, your destinations will be available whenever you need them.
