Daimler Deepens Its Partnership with Google

At the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Daimler and Google announced that they will strengthen their partnership. Presently, Daimler cars are using Google maps that enhances motoring experience for Mercedes drivers globally. Daimler, having won the International CES Innovations 2012 Design and Engineering Awards Honoree", have a long history of providing innovative solutions for the Mercedes car owners.

Ongoing successful long-term cooperation

Google and Daimler have been working in close partnership for many years. In 2007 Daimler was the first automotive manufacturer in the United States to launch the Google “Send-to-Car” functionality in a vehicle. This gave Mercedes-Benz customers the opportunity to easily send destinations from Google Maps to their in-vehicle navigation systems. As of 2011, Mercedes-Benz offers COMAND Online, a telematics system with cloud-based Mercedes-Benz apps that brings Google Street View, Panoramio and local search technologies to most Mercedes-Benz passenger cars. Mercedes-Benz customers also have the opportunity to send individualized routes from Google Maps to their vehicles, as Daimler is first-to-market with the implementation of this Google service. In the second quarter of 2012 all these services will also be available with mbrace2 to Mercedes-Benz customers in the USA.
