Mercedes integrates iPhone

Luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz this week revealed that an integrated iPhone cradle is now available as an option on all its vehicles. Allowing drivers to easily switch between standard radio and iPhone functions, it offers full iPhone functionality through the vehicle's driver display and multifunction steering wheel. In addition to helping drivers comply with traffic legislation specific to mobile telephone usage in cars, Mercedes believes that the cradle "enhances road safety, as the driver's hands remain on the steering wheel, leaving them free to concentrate on the traffic and the other controls in the cockpit."

Located discretely in the center console to ensure easy reach for both driver and passenger, the iPhone cradle includes an integrated charging feature, and enables connection of the iPhone to the vehicle's internal antenna. Priced at $390, the iPhone cradle is available for all current Mercedes-Benz models except for the G-Class.
