Apple Watch app to offer directions for Mercedes owners

Premium car maker Mercedes-Benz have built a new 'MB Companion' app that will work on the Apple Watch and iPhones and will help users with precise directions of their destinations.

If you own a Mercedes-Benz car as well as an Apple Watch, the entire process will seem very simple. Before setting out of the house, you need to check the app for walking directions to your car.

Once you are seated, just enter the destination on the Apple Watch which will then be picked up by Mercedes-Benz Comand Online and the system will feed in "safe and non-distracting" directions to your car's navigation system.

Once you've parked your car, you'll get fresh walking directions on your Apple Watch from your car to the exact location, completing the 'door to door' experience that Mercedes-Benz wish to fulfill.

While the system isn't ready yet, Mercedes-Benz C-Class and S-Class vehicles that are synced with Comand Online will be able to support the app by the end of the year. It is believed that in the near future, more and more Mercedes-Benz cars will be able to work with the MB Companion app.

If you tend to make further use of the app in your Apple Watch, there'll be good news for you. Mercedes-Benz have confirmed that later this year, the MB Companion app will also help users with advances vehicle information like fuel level, range, maintenance code, and odometer readings.
