I only wish I had my first car, a 1965 Plymouth Belvedere which my late grandfather bought me. And then, I would have enjoyed an iPhone app to run on it. No. I am not planning on a Mercedes Benz. Diesel fueled VW Superwagen, perhaps. Plug-in Prius next generation model more likely. But not the expensive MB.
Last year Hughes Telematics had the Mercedes mbrace iPhone app on display, providing some OnStar-like functionality like locking your car remotely, unlocking your car remotely, and even getting navigation to your car for those times when you park way out in the lot and can't find it again when you're suffering from post-shopping marathon mental lethargy. Now there's a new version coming, getting submitted to Apple at the end of the month for a February release, and it adds a suite of new navigation features. Full details after the break.
