Digital DriveStyle App
In among Mercedes' other bite-sized app offerings was one called Digital DriveStyle. This clever bit of code works with your phone and something called 'Drive Kit Plus' in the car to help you avoid everything from traffic to tragedy.
Not only does this car-to-car info system notify you when something is up on your chosen route, it also allows you to notify others of hazards where you are. Presumably things like beige Allegros being driven by old dears the wrong way down motorway off-ramps, and Audi's one inch from your rear bumper even though you're both doing 90mph. On the autobahn, obviously.
