Fully Access Your iPhone With Mercedes Benz's "iPhone Interface Plus"
Mercedes Benz announced their new built-in “iPhone Interface Plus” today which allows you to carry your scoial networks with you even when you’re in your car. Mercedes Benz’s “iPhone Interface Plus” access your iPhone’s Social Apps like Facebook and Twitter and display them right on your Mercedes Dash. Now this is something cool, you can update your status on your Facebook or write send a Tweet right from your dash.
It comes with some other common features as well which include voice dialing emails etc etc. Of course you cannot read your email while you’re driving but this new app will read them loud for you while you drive.
iPhone Interface Plus will arrive with the help of an upcoming Mercedes-Benz app designed for iOS, which, when ran on an iPhone and placed into the integrated area in the front cab of the vehicle, will fully connect itself to the car’s electronics system. This whole new system would be available in Summer 2012.
Bentley also introduced their 2012 concept Mulsanne at International Automobile Exhibition, Frankfurt which was loaded with iPod, iPads and even a Mac Mini. It seems like automobile companies are more inclined toward making their cars more “fun and cool”.
Stuttgart/Frankfurt – Trendsetting ideas for the modern digital lifestyle, providing fun and entertainment for people on the go, are being introduced by Mercedes-Benz through its Genuine Accessories range at the IAA in Frankfurt. The Apple iPhone® can be fully integrated into the control and display system of vehicles bearing the three-pointed star, using a special app to exploit the capabilities of the hippest premium smartphone on the market. Entertainment on the move, plus access to the internet, are made possible by an ingenious head restraint mounting for the Apple iPad®. New wheel designs are a further highlight on show at the IAA. The new items from the Mercedes-Benz Collection can now also be ordered from the comfort of your own home: the Mercedes-Benz Shop is going online, just in time for the IAA.
The Apple iPhone® is synonymous with fuss-free access to the digital world and to the wide range of attractive possibilities available there. And not only is it hip, it is also considered the most multi-talented smartphone around. With its iPhone® Interface Plus concept, Mercedes-Benz is able to enhance significantly the functionality of the communication and information system already installed in the vehicle, using the iPhone® as, amongst other things, an external media centre.
