As if the other half doesn’t live well enough. New to Mercedes-Benz vehicles is the addition of a “Send to Car” button on Google and Yahoo Maps. Navigate there via your computer or cell phone, hit the button, and it shoots maps, driving directions, even points of interest to your ride. When you enter the car, simply hit the “i” button, and it’s downloaded for your viewing pleasure. Even better? It allows other people to send you directions that you can download almost instantly. They officially call it “Search and Send” and it will show up on the S- and CL-Class Benz after September 5th, and on the entire 2008 C-Class lineup. Sounds like fun.
