Mercedes Bringing Digital Services To Older Models With ‘Me’ Adapter

If you own an older Mercedes-Benz model, you too can now access a range of digital services by using the Mercedes ‘me’ Adapter and smartphone app. Both the adapter, as well as fitment are free of charge, for the time being.

According to Mercedes, the adapter, available now at all Mercedes-Benz retailers in the UK, will work on models as old as the W169 A-Class or the W211 E-Class.

“The Mercedes-Benz Adapter gives more of our customers than ever before the opportunity to benefit from our Mercedes me service. The service connects our customers with their car, allowing them access to their most important vehicle information at the press of a button,” said Mercedes-Benz UK exec, Sally Jones.

Once the adapter is fitted, you can access vehicle information through the smartphone app, or by logging onto the Mercedes ‘me’ portal on a computer. Available information includes fuel level and range, mileage, battery voltage, parking time, as well as when the next servicing is due. The app will also make a note of where you parked your car, so you can find it easier later on.

As for other features, there’s the possibility of saving previous trip information, including distance traveled and the route taken. Customers can even book their next service through the app.

It only takes five minutes for the adapter to be fitted to your older Mercedes-Benz model. In order to activate it, all you have to do is create a Mercedes ‘me’ account and wait for a Mercedes retailer to link the car to the account.

      Well, MercedesMe is a subscription service, so it makes sense. Give the hardware for free, and charge their fee to use app.
