Despite a comparatively rough start in the European market, Mercedes-Benz managed to post solid figures for the first quarter of 2013, culminating in a best-ever month in March, with a whopping 139,920 units sold around the world over that period.

Garmin, perhaps the leading name today when it comes to GPS technology, is set to supply Mercedes-Benz with the navigation systems to be used in its vehicles’ dashboards in the future. According to the Kansas-headquartered company, Garmin navigation devices are set to be integrated within the infotainment systems found in the German automaker’s cars. Since Garmin speaks of ‘seamless’ integration, it should be obvious that we won’t see a separate Garmin navigation interface. Instead, the navigation system might be integrated into the COMAND interface. That’s bound to be more beneficial for drivers and it should make the system much more accessible from a usability standpoint. This way, it should offer a… Continue Reading »
