Apple iPhone integration with Siri voice control
April 9, 2012
Mercedes-Benz is taking the concept of an in-car multimedia system to an unprecedented level. The new A-Class will be the first Mercedes-Benz model to arrive fully integrated with the Apple iPhone 4S with Siri voice control and a range of model lines are expected to follow step.
Incorporating iPhone 4S functions via a customised ‘Digital Drive Style App’ and the existing COMAND Online system, our Drive Kit Plus offers the ultimate in mobile communications.
While docked in the car, the iPhone 4S allows you to access all your content, plus social networking applications such as Facebook and twitter. When you’re travelling, it also lets you send messages, make phone calls, schedule meetings and much more – simply by asking Siri, its very intelligent built-in ‘virtual assistant’.
The first car manufacturer to offer Siri as part of in-vehicle voice control systems, plans are already in place to rollout Apple integration in the B-Class, C-Class, and E-Class models over the course of this year.
