Mercedes Benz mbrace 2 takes infotainment to the next level. The latest version includes Facebook integration, Yelp and even a web browser. Unlike some competitors that rely on a touchscreen, mbrace 2 uses a knob so the driver's eyes can stay on the road. Other features include a digital journal, which chronicles driving stats and sends them to your phone.
Speaking of phones, Mercedes Benz' iPhone app now features the ability to beam addresses from your handset to the car for quicker navigation. Another cool feature is Drive2Friend, which shoots off a text to a friend asking permission to share their location. If your buddy replies yes, their GPS coordinates are sent to the car, pulling up directions automatically.
Motorists will get their first taste of mbrace 2 in early May when it debuts in the 2013 Mercedes 2013 SL class. However, it will be a standard feature in all 2013 models.
