Ratings and Reviews
Speedy App but Unreliable Location Lookup
This app has a different but limited feature set compared to the MercedesMe app. But what it does do (tire pressure monitor, fuel gage and POI lookup/send to car’s navigation) usually works really well.
For the POI Look Up, it sends destinations to your vehicle’s nav system over Bluetooth, which is much faster than MercedesMe sends a destination to your car via back-end servers and satellites.
There is one feature, that if reliable would be amazing, but is often buggy. That is the ability to look up an address using 3rd party apps (e.g., Apple maps and google maps) and then send them to your car using a button on the iOS share sheet. It’s super nifty when it works. But sometimes the app sends a completely WRONG ADDRESS. This usually happens when looking up a chain restaurant or business.
For example, I once looked up a FedEx Office in Apple Maps and when I sent the destination to my vehicle’s navigation using the share sheet button the Companion App sent the address for a different FedEx Office in a completely different state!
That needs to be fixed!
I have the Mercedes Me App.. seems to works great. It will remote start my car, lock and unlock doors and seems to do what it’s supposed to. This app I don’t understand why nothing works. I can look up an address but when I click to have said address sent to the car it always gives me an error. Would love to get that issue fixed because it would be so helpful. I hope you take the time to fix your app so it works the way it’s supposed to. Thank you.
Would love to have KM instead of miles Option
Hi, your app is wonderful and I can use it for my car even outside the US. However, is there a chance to support the metrics system in km and liters instead of just miles and gallons?
