Luxury carmaker Mercedes-Benz unveiled plans to integrate Apple’s Siri into its A-Class electronics system that would allow drivers access to their iPhone apps using voice commands. The program, called the Drive Kit Plus will work in conjunction with Mercedes-Benz’ Digital DriveStyle App to translate the iPhone’s screen onto the in-car system screen. Drivers will be able to listen to music, change radio channels, update status on social networks, and send text messages. The Drive Kit Plus will come preinstalled with popular apps such as Twitter, Facebook, and Aupeo Personal Radio. Users can then add and control other apps via their iPhones. Another exciting feature is the integration of a Garmin navigation system that is operable through Siri as well.

Using Siri’s natural voice commands, Mercedes-Benz is the first carmaker to integrate the Apple’s technology into a vehicle’s  electronic platform. The new feature will debut in the 2012 Geneva auto show next month and will roll out in all A-Class vehicles beginning this fall.

Our sincere thanks to
