Product description.

Mercedes PRO connect provides you with digital services that provide you with all the relevant information for a more pleasant journey thanks to "Improved Navigation"1 services in your multimedia system. The traffic data in real time, always up-to-date map data as well as various Multimedia and Navigation Functions allow you to find the best route at the moment. 

Included services

Live Traffic Information incl. Car-to-X Communication

Get to your destination safely and with as little traffic as possible.

Traffic jams cost valuable time and cause added stress. Therefore avoid driving in traffic as much as possible with the "Live Traffic Information" service, which offers traffic data in real time. Thanks to the continuously updated data on traffic jams, stop-and-go traffic and average speed on major roads the navigation system always finds the best way to your destination. This makes your fleet work more efficiently and your drivers more relaxed on the road.

As a complement to the traffic information in real-time, "Car-to-X Communication" can warn you about hazards along the route, for example heavy rain, fog, ice or accident vehicles. The basis for this is formed by automatically collected anonymised data from all vehicles that use this technology. For example, if the Electronic Stability Program ESP® intervenes in one of these vehicles because the road surface is slippery, the following vehicles on that route will automatically receive a warning. This allows dangerous situations and accidents to be avoided. The driver is informed by an acoustic warning signal or a spoken warning message in the vehicle regarding the danger.

The key advantages at a glance:
  • Faster arrival thanks to best possible route guidance and avoidance of tailbacks with real-time traffic information
  • More efficient use of working time, as idle times in tailbacks can be avoided
  • More reliable estimated arrival time makes it possible to respond to delays in good time and inform customers accordingly
  • More driving safety, as the driver can be warned of hazards in good time on the multimedia system's touchscreen

The information of this service is displayed on the touchscreen of the multimedia system. You can therefore only use Live Traffic Information in conjunction with the MBUX multimedia system with 17.8 cm (7 inch) touchscreen and navigation or the MBUX multimedia system with 26 cm (10.25 inch) touchscreen.1 For "Car-to-X Communication", only data of vehicles that are directly affected by the event is processed and that also use "Car-to-X Communication". You can therefore not assume that you will be warned of dangers in advance in all cases.

Online Map Update

Always on the road with the latest map material.

You have likely experienced this before: the navigation system does not recognise new roads and therefore does not optimally support you on your journey. Here the "Online Map Update" service helps. You then always benefit from the most current maps in the region you have selected. This selection is made in the Mercedes PRO Portal. The updates take place online whilst the vehicle is in use, without you having to make an extra visit to the workshop2. If you are on the road in regions you have not been to before, you can download additional maps via the Mercedes PRO Portal and update it manually.

The key advantages at a glance:
  • Navigation with up-to-date map material, thanks to online updates
  • Time saving, as no workshop visit is required for an online update
  • Navigation DVDs are superfluous, as the update takes place online

The "Online Map Update" service is available in conjunction with the MBUX multimedia system with 17.8 cm (7-inch) touchscreen and navigation or the MBUX multimedia system with 26 cm (10.25-inch) touchscreen. The service must first be activated and the region for the map update selected in the Mercedes PRO Portal. 

Multimedia Functions

Bring relevant online information into the vehicle.

The "Multimedia Functions" service bundles a series of online applications that offer valuable information on the road and make work easier. For example, the highlights include a comfortable voice control function, online search on the internet or even an Internet Radio.3

The key advantages at a glance:
  • Convenient voice control, e.g. for the telephone, navigation and media, with "Voice Command Operation"
  • Voice control makes content easier to find, using "Global Search"
  • Enormous range of radio stations via "Internet Radio"3
  • Simplified navigation using a unique 3-word address (what3words)
  • Browse the internet directly via your MBUX multimedia system3 4

You can only use the "Multimedia Functions" service in conjunction with the MBUX multimedia system with 17.8 cm (7 inch) touchscreen and navigation or satellite radio or the MBUX multimedia system with 26 cm (10.25 inch) touchscreen. Several of the applications have to be activated via the Mercedes PRO Portal before their use. For various functions (Internet Radio and Browser) an additional data volume is required, which can be purchased via the "Internet in the car"3 service.4

Navigation Functions incl. Send2Car

Navigate more efficiently with supplementary information.    

The "Navigation Functions" service bundles a series of online applications that offer valuable information on the road and make navigation easier. The highlights include, for example, Send2Car, display of petrol station prices, parking options or weather information on the touchscreen of the multimedia system.

The "Send2Car" function makes it possible to send addresses from the Vehicle Management Tool directly to the navigation system in the vehicle. The driver is informed via a message on the touchscreen about the receipt of an address and can either accept this as a navigation destination or save it for later use. This allows the address transfer to work  quicker and without misunderstanding, which makes work easier for both the driver and the fleet manager. 

The key advantages at a glance:
  • Find local filling stations with favourable prices more easily with the "Petrol Station Prices" function on the navigation screen of the multimedia system
  • Weather information directly on the navigation system's map via "Weather"
  • Display of available parking facilities and information about multi-storey car parks in the multimedia system using the "Available Parking Spaces" function
  • More efficient working procedures, as addresses can be directly adopted into the vehicle's navigation system
  • Fewer errors when communicating addresses, as the driver does not need to enter the address manually

You can only use the "Navigation Functions" service in conjunction with the MBUX multimedia system with 17.8 cm (7-inch) touchscreen and navigation or the MBUX multimedia system with 26 cm (10.25-inch) touchscreen. Several of the applications have to be activated via the Mercedes PRO Portal before their use. To use "Send2Car" directly from the Vehicle Management Tool, you also require the "Fleet Communication" and "Vehicle Operations" services.

Helpful guides, Q&As and details on Mercedes PRO connect can be found here in a clear and compact form.

1

The ""Improved Navigation"" services are only available in conjunction with the MBUX multimedia system with 17.8 cm (7-inch) touchscreen and navigation (or satellite radio for multimedia services) or with MBUX multimedia system with 26 cm (10.25-inch) touchscreen.

The maps cannot be updated online for vehicles in which the maps have not been updated for several months, particularly because the service has been deactivated, the ignition has not been switched on long enough or because the connection to the mobile network is insufficient. In this case maps must be updated manually using a USB stick or at a Mercedes-Benz workshop. Further information can be found in the Mercedes PRO Portal.

Additional data volume via the "Internet in the Car" service is necessary for this; it can be obtained from the mobile phone network provider.

"Internet in the Car" is available in selected countries. Further information is available from your Mercedes-Benz dealer.
