What does it really do, and more importantly do I actually need any of it?

Amazingly I can remember to lock my own car, and remember where I parked it, so what can this app do for me?

Geo fencing, so you are notified if the car moves from a location you define - perhaps if you were away from home or on holiday, might be useful...

Maintenance stuff, remote locking (note that all of this is done over the internet so you could lock/unlock from any location in the world:

A useful feature is being able to push POIs to the car so you can plan any journey from the comfort of your own bed :)

So basically, it's a toy, a gadget? I appreciate the features might be useful to some, but not to me :D

Agreed, I guess it comes down to your needs and what you'd find useful. Personally, I reckon features such as checking fuel level/range/tyre pressure/coolant and pushing points of interest to the car's sat nav could all prove useful in planning a journey from the comfort of your home.

You could of course dismiss this facility altogether, on the basis that it's essentially a gadget, but isn't most of the stuff on smart phones 'gadgetised' versions of traditional ways of doing things (e.g. news/banking/email/maps etc. etc.)?

The pre-heat / pre-cool is nice - but is only available to hybrids

Hehehe. You just made me laugh (in a good way)

It is a gadget, toy and a bit of fun.

Not sure why you'd need to lock/unlock your car from a great distance, or see what fuel levels, tyre pressures, oil/water levels & next service due date. Or indeed to see if it's moved out of an area! All pretty silly stuff me thinks.

Do I wish I'd have ordered it as a £150 option on my C Class?

Bloody right I do!!! :doh::doh::doh:

When you said it's changed your life. I remember saying that about auto reverse cassette decks on my Pioneer Hi-fi :bannana:

Can this be retro fitted to say a 2014 E class?

£150 for a gadget sounds good to me. Saves you checking the dipstick under the bonnet too ;-)

Cheers

My car (W205 C250) is registered with Mercedes Me but it didn't come with the MM option, so after a lot of fussing, giving me bad information and having no real information about what it was I eventually persuaded my dealership to register the car. I don't have the benefit of the app, but the satnav is definitely better informed about traffic conditions.

It sounds good when the salesman tells it.

I suspect most people who have it register - setup the app - try it - and then forget about it.

However behind the scenes - the emergency call feature may be less obviously useful - that is until it comes to your aid.

I have the emergency button in the roof console? I have 3 years of the additional traffic alerts too. So really it's useless :)

What if you lock your keys in the car - assuming that is even possible - remote unlock would be good then.
