It’s just a race these days as to who gets your data first .. Google, Apple, Microsoft, our government, other governments, huawei .. Sarge :wink: ... the list goes on.
Mercedes is probably the least of our problems.
Never mind keeping the car keys in a biscuit tin, need to line one's garage with tin foil...!!!
"Plan B" is not to buy a MB on credit & then not keep up with the payments....
Talking of tracking, I've installed the "PetrolPrices" App here in the UK & now works really well :tu:
It's now a crowd based system, where people update the prices & get "points" - and We all know what point mean..!!
Anyway, out walking the dog the other day & a message popped up asking Me whether I was at our local Petrol station & could I update the prices....? :surprise:
Same here. In one part of town, I ALWAYS get bizarre routes. Don't get the same route home that got me there too. Last time that happened, I knew I was getting farther and farther from home, but had no idea how to extricate myself. On that trip, it had me make a U-turn, then immediately make another U-turn! Full 360. I passed. Eventually hit street I knew. Could have tried my phone, I guess.
One odd thing: the little orange/white compass doesn't know left from right. Works if you're headed north or south, but east and west are backwards. The digital display is correct: reads E/NE/W/SW etc. A C-class loaner did the same thing. Or am I cornfused?

MB Sat Nav and confusion go together.
They are not alone.
I don't get it (neither does the SN).
I can buy a SN unit that I can take anywhere (including in my pocket) for £100.
You seen the price to replace your SN at a dealer.
It stays with the car, can't find it's way out of a paper bag
and (after 3? years) they expect you to pay for updates.
Mine is up to date and yet I still find myself driving through rivers, or the middle of fields
according to SN screen.
Security cameras at a Crystal River, Fla., Ford dealership captured the shocking moment when an out of control car left the road in front of the showroom, jumped two rows of vehicles and landed in the parking lot.
The Camry can be seen clearing about a dozen vehicles before crashing nose-first...
Just the heartwarming and funny ones
Please don't post commercial commercials....you know what I mean :D
