Mercedes previews future infotainment technology with @yourCOMAND system

Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011

Mercedes-Benz debuted its new high tech infotainment system when it unveiled the F 125! concept vehicle.

The COMAND system are aimed at people who are practically connected all the time, so the system has internet connection with access to some cool features. The functions of the @yourCOMAND are designed to make life a lot easier. You can program the navigation remotely, set the climate control of the vehicle from your mobile phone, and use gestures of your hand to operate important functions.

The system is still a few years away from getting into the production pipeline but Mercedes-Benz confirmed that they will be implementing a COMAND system by 2012. They added that this system is designed to be used by iPhone owners. Once your phone is connected with the system, users can get some apps that can send useful information to the display of the car which can then be used with the COMAND system.

If you do not own an iPhone, you should not feel left out as Mercedes also plans to tap the MirrorLink used by HTC, Samsung, and Nokia. There will also be a support so pairing different kinds of phone to the @yourCOMAND system will be a breeze without requiring pass codes or having to search for the device. These technologies might be on the market by 2013.

Here is a video about the COMAND infotainment system:

Mercedes-Benz Ranked #1 For Customer Retention & Service!

One thing that I have noticed about the automotive industry is the fact that customer service has gone down immensely.  Customer retention has also gone to the dogs lately, however — Mercedes-Benz is one company that is known for not only their customer service but also known for their customer retention.  That is why they are ranked #1 by J.D Powers & Associates for customer retention.

Mercedes-Benz is definitely one brand of car that is not only getting better and better every single year but I can certainly tell the difference when I go into a Mercedes-Benz dealer versus going into any other dealership.  The customer service is incredible and that alone is powerful.

So if you are looking for a brand new car this season, I highly recommend going into a Mercedes-Benz dealership!

Mercedes SL Avalange RS Should Be The Car Of The Year!

Sunday, June 21st, 2009

When I was doing some research for this blog – there are quite a few cars that I came across, however, one in particular caught my eye and that was the Mercedes SL Avalange RS, designed by Piecha.  This beautiful car actually made its very first appearance at the Tuning World Bodensee Show and since, has been one of the most popular cars in the world.  This car comes standard with QUADRO 4-pipe tail pipes and LED daytime running lights. The tuners also said that the Mercedes SL Avalange RS parts have been tested beyond the 300 km/h mark.

This car really does combine the very best of two worlds and it is definitely one car that Germany has went wild for.  The car itself is made of an extremely light but definitely durable material, the overall design form the very tip of the headlights all the way to the back rear spoiler has been designed to be chic and clean and overall, I think they did a great job!
