Garmin as global navigation provider for future Mercedes-Benz models. Garmin’s
award-winning navigation will be fully integrated into Mercedes-Benz

partner is a testament to Garmin’s growing capability and exceptional product
quality in the auto OEM space,” said Matt Munn, Garmin managing director

a second display, positioned behind the steering wheel. The Mercedes-Benz
infotainment systems also allow users to control navigation functions through
the system’s rotary controller or via voice command functionality.

critical positioning information for Advanced Driver Assistance (ADAS)
functionalities of the vehicle to assist drivers in challenging situations.
