- Nav and electronic integration are horrible
Mercedes has struggled for years with difficult to use interfaces to their nav and electronics. The new S is NO improvement. The voice control is spotty and controls few things. Programming an address is very time consuming and requires more information than many drivers looking for an address actually have. It only allows address 'ranges' - you cant put in a specific address. This is a step back. I bought an Acura RL instead. They have a nav like it is supposed to be. Setting car options through the nav is also horrible. I love the look and prestige of MB, but I cant help but wonder if they cut so many corners with nav/electronics, did they do the same for the mechanics and safety systems? Since so many cars rely on electronics for most of their functions, it is not a stretch to make these comparisons. I hate to say it, but MB is starting to seem like '70s Detroit. They are on the down side unless they make changes now.
