America News:  Mercedes-Benz introduces easy way to send directions from PC to car

Mercedes-Benz has announced a first for US drivers: Search & Send, a facility that enables a user to search for directions on the Yahoo!® Local Maps and Google™ Maps websites on a PC, and then send the result to his vehicle.

To retrieve the information in the vehicle, the user presses the i-button and the destination will be downloaded directly to the vehicle's navigation system via the Mercedes-Benz Tele Aid System.

The user will then be prompted to either start route guidance immediately or save the information for later use.

Mercedes-Benz is first OEM to offer this functionality in the US.

Mercedes-Benz Search & Send is available starting on model year 2007 S-Class and CL-Class, and model year 2008 C-Class with the Multimedia Package and Navigation System.
