Mercedes, iPhone and James Bond

What do these three things have in common? Well, Mercedes has created an iPhone app that lets you control your Benz. What will the app let you do? Apparently....
  • Navigation
  • Remote door locking
  • Vehicle finding
  • Dealer connect
  • Stolen vehicle location
  • Automatic alarm notification
  • Roadside assistance calling
  • Automatic collision notification
  • If that's not enough, there are premium extras that give you location-based weather and traffic info, and a concierge service that lets you book hotels, find stores, make restaurant reservations and so on.
Other than letting you steer your car through a parking garage while slumped down in the backseat it doesn't get much more James Bond than this.

Can't wait to see what the guys at Pimp My Ride can come up with.
