Easy-to-use, in-car infotainment systems are essential for many new car buyers, especially those in the luxury segment. That’s why Mercedes-Benz created, and continues to improve, its mbrace interface. As the central infotainment system in new Mercedes-Benz models, mbrace helps drivers be safer and more productive behind the wheel while also making the driving experience more enjoyable. To help you understand all the things you’ll get with the Mercedes-Benz mbrace system, we’ll tackle a question we hear a lot on the lot — “What is Mercedes-Benz mbrace?” by explaining some of its key features.
How Mercedes-Benz mbrace keeps you safe
Preparing you for Accidents
Trying to prepare for an accident is like expecting the unexpected — it’s difficult to do. But the Mercedes-Benz mbrace system can help with an SOS button that you can quickly touch to get the help of trained specialists. You can either report your location, or if you seat-belt pretensioner or airbag is activated, Mercedes-Benz can make that emergency call on your behalf.
Keeping Tabs on your Kids
Being the parent of a new driver can be as stressful, or even more so, than the first time you got behind the wheel. With a feature called Driving Zones, you can make sure your kids are going where they said they would and also see if they are exceeding established speeds you set.
While the SOS button is especially useful in the unfortunate event of an accident, it can also help you better handle minor emergencies. By using the i-Button on the mbrace mobile app, you can get help if you need a tow, a hand replacing a flat tire, fuel delivery, or even if a dashboard warning light illuminated and you want to know if it’s okay to continue driving.

When you park your car or you leave it with a valet, you can set boundaries using Valet Protect to ensure your car doesn’t leave certain areas. If it doesn, you’ll be alerted via an alert on your smartphone, or you can have mbrace call, text or send you an email. Of course, the built-in GPS system also will help, and police, keep tabs on your car if necessary.
The Mercedes-Benz mbrace interface is available in most new Mercedes-Benz models and is a great way to stay better connected, and safer on the road. Stay posted to our blog to find out more about what the Mercedes-Benz mbrace system can do to improve your experience behind the wheel.
