News: Mercedes Adopts Siri


Mercedes next A-Class is coming with an updated COMAND infotainment system, a sharp, modern, three-dimensional design with a range of new features and functions, nearly all of which are centered on the iPhone 4S.

“The new Digital DriveStyle app allows drivers to stream AUPEO! radio (Europe‘s equivalent to Pandora), connect with Facebook and Twitter to read out status updates, find your car in a crowded parking lot and get real-time traffic data and point-of-interest searches through a new Garmin navigation system. All of which is available with the entry-level “Audio 20″ setup.” Autoblog

Mercedes is also the first automaker to support and integrate Apple’s Siri voice-recognition technology, allowing users to make appointments, send text messages and emails, get weather status and access all their songs through voice commands. These services will be coming to the B-, C- and E-Class models
