Yesterday Mercedes-Benz sent over some images of Apple’s new CarPlay feature for iOS running in its new C-Class set to be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show this week. Today the company has released a new video that gives us a better look at the feature up and running in the vehicle. Some people have been not so impressed with Mercedes’ implementation of the touch display in the new C-Class. It does look like somewhat of an afterthought the way it floats above the dash rather than being built right into the console like in Volvos and other vehicles. Ferrari, Volvo, and Mercedes-Benz are showing off CarPlay this week, but Apple expects many more partners to launch the feature in new vehicles later in the year.

  3. This Mercedes user interface sucks. Why can’t you just “touch” the screen? Instead, you have to use their stupid mouse built into the arm rest. This is stupid engineering.

    If that is the best Mercedes can do to intergrate technology I may pass on that brand on my next vehicle upgrade.

  10. Have to agree with everyone else here, WORST PROMO VIDEO EVER! Apple should have final approval on this type of marketing, makes Siri integration look like a total fail.

    Guys, this is clearly not a promo video but a B-Roll. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/B-roll Whoever uploaded it unedited didn’t know what they were doing. Not all bloggers are journalists.
