When do Merc customers get this???

Story
Quote:
...we recently introduced the ability to call businesses in the U.S. directly from Google Maps, and, as of today, users in Germany can send a business listing found on Google Maps Deutschland directly to cars enabled with the BMW Assist service. Drivers can then set it as the destination for the in-car navigation system, or they can call the business from within the car. No more having to write down the address and re-enter it in the car -- now you can just click and drive! Here's a video showing how this feature works (German version). We've partnered with BMW because they're a leading innovator in the automotive space, and they share our vision for a network-connected world.
So when will Mercedes start offering this? That is one thing that disappoints me about my SLK. Technologically, the MP3 support and the sophistication of the Navi is pretty average.

Not for a very long time if you look at the navigation in the 221 then thats going to be the best MB have to offer on the other variants for a few years yet.

It does seem a little dated, There just a little slow integrating new technology.

May be they are slow, but everytime when I see a BMW standing on the Autobahn waiting for help I am praying that Mercedes stays slow.

Although the software maybe be very dated, how many cars can play DVD mp3s from the factory? that's got to count for something...and a remote audio input jack is standard? that's pretty cool too! you might say, a lot of cars have this, but most cars have it right on the stereo face, which is very inconvenient...

Couldnt agree more, especially with the audio input jack, very very useful especially for songs etc.
