Maps on Mercs

Mercedes-Benz has forged a deal with Google and Yahoo! to link web maps with GPS data, simplifying in-car navigation services. Both Google Maps and Yahoo! Local Maps will soon have a "Send to Car" option, allowing maps, directions and points of interest to be sent to a Mercedes GPS system, whether the owner's or that of a peer. Once in their cars, people will have to push an "i" button to download the information, which will then be usable either immediately or at a later time. Mercedes' Search & Send system will launch September 5th with the S-class sedan and CL-class coupe, and should be present on all models of the 2008 C-class.
