Mercedes-Benz has followed in the likes of BMW and Volkswagen to announce its own Apple Watch application that provides walking directions to and from where your car is parked.

Combined with the Mercedes COMAND online console, this ecosystem of navigation products aims to give an always-on service that will aid you with directions wherever you need to go.

Using the Mercedes-Benz companion app, owners of a Mercedes vehicle can search for walking/ driving directions on both the Apple Watch and iPhone. For driving directions, the destination that the driver selects is passed to the Mercedes-Benz COMAND Online console which displays directions to the selected destination. When the driver leaves the car and walks on foot, the Apple Watch will deliver walking directions to the final destination.

Currently, COMAND online is only availabale in the new Mercedes-Benz C-Class and S-Class vehicles, however further models are expected to follow soon.
