In-car iPhone Cradle Available for Mercedes-Benz
Mercedes-Benz now allows the iPhone connection to be fully integrated into the vehicle architecture. The new Apple iPhone cradle allows simple switching between the telephone and audio functions. For ease of use, the iPhone is controlled via the multifunction steering wheel, while the vehicle display is used to indicate the phone status or music functions and information such as the track title and artist.
The Apple iPhone cradle’s exclusive design allows it to be integrated seamlessly into the interior of Mercedes-Benz vehicles. The all-new design is based on a black-and-silver colour scheme that adds hallmark Mercedes-Benz touches. A further advantage is the automatic recharging of the iPhone battery whilst the phone is sitting in the cradle.
The fully integrated iPhone is available now for the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, E‑Class, CLK-Class, CLS-Class, S-Class, CL-Class, SL-Class, M-Class and R-Class. The product will also be offered for the new GLK-Class when this model is launched in October. In Germany, the Apple iPhone cradle retails at € 249 (including VAT) and is obtainable from all Mercedes-Benz dealers.
