Hi Folks,

Just purchased a 2018 SLC 180 semi-auto which will replace my SLK 230 Kompressor (once I’ve sold it). Before anyone has a pop, I know it’s the baby of the range, but it suits what I used it for (also have a C Class). Well, I have a question that I hope someone can answer for me and it concerns the Mercedes me app. With my C Class I get a raft of information about the car, mileage/fuel/range/tyre pressure/doors open or close, etc. When registering the SLC to the app I only get the mileage/service due/mobilo. I have been told that this is all you get on the app with a SLC. Does anyone here use the app with their SLC, and do you get the same minimal info as I do or do you get more? I can’t seem to get a straight answer from my dealer. Thanks, and happy open top driving to everyone. Also, sad that the R172 will be the last after recent news that it is to be axed, for me, I don’t think there is another car that is equal to it in this market sector.

Hi Tom,

Thank you. This is the info I get on my C Class. I was told yesterday by my dealer that I need to pay extra to get this information! I am now considering telephoning the Me helpline to ask them now I have your response. I take it you didn’t pay any extra. Bob

UPDATE AFTER SPEAKING TO MERCEDES GERMANY

It turns out that as a second user I have to buy these services from within the Mercedes Me Portal. There are two packages to buy to get the full information, Vehicle Monitoring & Vehicle Setup, the cost for each package is 1 year £29, 2 year £59, 3 year £79. I don’t think I’ll be bothering!

Thanks to all who responded, it is much appreciated.

Regards,
Bob

I also have all the extra info, but also have comand, so maybe that is the common denominator ( demo car - pretty sure I would not pay the huge extra if I had had the choice to spec myself...)

My SLC has COMAND and all the above functions, but interesting to read how much it will cost after 3 years...!! :surprise:

I use the remote un-lock/lock quite a bit, when I haven't got the key with Me...
Plus the Tyre Pressured screen is also useful, to keep an eye on when I think about it.
Though the one bit of info missing, is battery voltage, which considering some of the other items would be useful during the winter months when the car is not used much.. :frown:

I have the same info as Tom and did not pay any extra for it

I am not that familiar with SLC built specs and wonder whether having Comand is something that is an add on to the Audio 20 with a bigger dashboard screen. I know this is the case on the C Class, as I bought mine from new. Perhaps someone would kindly tell me, and others, what you get with Comand and how this differs from a car without it. Thanks, Bob

All SLC's get the 7" display - This is the description of the standard Audio 20 on page 26 of the MY18 SLC Brochure:
