According to an article on ubergizmo.com, Mercedes-Benz is joining the league of BMW and Volkswagen, the auto giant has announced its own app for the Apple Watch. The main function of the application would be to help the Benz owners to navigate easily.

The users would just be required to enter the destination on their Watch or iPhone and it will be transmitted to the internal navigation system of the vehicle. As soon as the user step out of the car, the navigation shifts to the Apple Watch to guide him/her to the exact point while they are walking.

By using the companion app on the Apple Watch or the iPhone, users will have an ease to choose the device they would like the navigation information on. The app is not just about directions, it also provides users with handful of other information. Users are also provided with information such as fuel level, maintenance codes and odometer readings, range, all that will be displayed on their wrists.

The application has been designed by Benz’s Silicon Valley R&D center and it is dubbed for a release sometime later this year and it will be compatible with Benz’s C-class and S-Class cars that come equipped with COMAND online navigational systems. It’s compatibility will be stretched to other Benz models too, maybe sometime after the launch.
