Mercedes-Benz's iPhone App Just Got Even Fancier

Thanks to the mbrace iPhone app, Benzo owners in the US have long enjoyed the ability to find their vehicles and unlock them from their iPhones. MBbrace 2.0 adds access to M-B's extensive concierge services and more.

The concierge offers location-based recommendations for entertainment and dining, as well as traffic info and directions. That location information is also beamed to the Mercedes-Benz Roadside Assistance Center with every call, so if you happen to be pinned under your vehicle (or just need them to replace your flat tyre), M-B will know exactly where to send help with little fuss.

The update also adds support for multiple mbrace accounts, because you wouldn't want your wife calling the Mercedes-Benz concierge from your account, I guess? Anyway, back to Need for Speed for me. [iTunes]
