App Reviews

  • Confused

    By Stacy Latham
    I have the Mercedes Me App.. seems to works great. It will remote start my car, lock and unlock doors and seems to do what it’s supposed to. This app I don’t understand why nothing works. I can look up an address but when I click to have said address sent to the car it always gives me an error. Would love to get that issue fixed because it would be so helpful. I hope you take the time to fix your app so it works the way it’s supposed to. Thank you.
  • Would love to have KM instead of miles Option

    By AcidBase96
    Hi, your app is wonderful and I can use it for my car even outside the US. However, is there a chance to support the metrics system in km and liters instead of just miles and gallons?
  • Nice but...

    By MA KSA
    Nice app but I wish it can switch to the metric system in the settings. Also doesn’t always send the address correctly from google maps and doesn’t always read my calendar correctly.
  • Embarrassing

    By Mar.b
    Not compatible with a 2018 GLS. Had to call to find out after endless resets of Comand. They want to force you to use the Mercedes Me app which needs an account, weeks to activate, and sends continuously info to Mercedes. The companion app was easy to use and helped greatly with sending map info to your Mercedes which is a must for a car manufacturer that doesn’t use touchscreens like Volvo for example. Getting an address into the navi is a pain in the bottom. Apple CarPlay doesn’t work wirelessly and simply deactivates the internal navigation system. Who came up with this silly idea? All in all not happy with Mercedes. Getting a Volvo next.
  • Working great!

  • Needs update

    By Akar33
    It’s been a year since the iPhone X has been released but the app still doesn’t support it’s screen. Please update it. Also, the Apple Watch app doesn’t work on watchOS 5. It’ll be nice if you update that too. As a Mercedes customer, this isn’t too much to ask.
  • Support iOS 11 need improvement

    By sam028281
    The app is not functioning properly on iOS 11.0. The app lagging badly when connecting to the car 2016 C300. The lag caused unable to type and send location to the car. Hope you guys can fix it soon. Thanks.
  • Love ❤️ the app, but!?

    By Music Playing my Way
    I love the app it made me fall in love with my Apple watch again. Everything works except the gas ⛽️ indicator or readings. It does not appear on the phone nor watch. If you can fix that it would be lovely. Thanks😉

    Easy to set up, worked on first try
  • Stopped working

    By Dziner004
    Worked great as a companion to my 2017 C43 until the last update. It just stopped working. I relied on it for tire pressure monitoring and fuel levels when I'm not in the car. Feels like such a tease. As Mercedes Benz owners, we expect better. If I wanted basic service I'd go back to Volkswagen.
