Drivers can now easily find, compare and navigate to available off-street parking spaces using the COMAND® infotainment system
INRIX, the world leader in connected car services and location analytics, today announced that its Off-Street Parking service is now available in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class and S-Classes in Europe and the U.S. INRIX offers the most accurate real-time and dynamic parking information for garage location, number of spaces, detailed rates and current occupancy levels. In June, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class became the first subsidiary of Daimler AG to integrate INRIX Off-Street Parking into vehicles.
INRIX Off-Street Parking is the world’s most comprehensive and accurate parking database that includes more than 29 million confirmed spaces in over 90,000 accessible locations spanning 4,000 cities in more than 60 countries. The service only displays publicly accessible, non-restricted parking spaces, including both free and paid locations, so users are never misrouted to locations that are unavailable to the general public. In fact, SBD, a global automotive technology research firm, concluded that INRIX was the “clear winner” in an independent off-street parking study that looked at essential parking attributes in Germany and the U.S.
“INRIX continues to be the preferred supplier of connected car services to leading automakers,” said Andreas Hecht, executive vice president and general manager of automotive at INRIX. “The addition of INRIX Off-Street Parking in Mercedes-Benz sedans is a testament to the caliber of our technology and data, and has cemented INRIX as the largest provider of embedded in-car parking information globally.”
INRIX launched the industry’s first dynamic off-street parking service in 2013, followed by the first integrated on-street parking solution in June 2015. In August 2015, INRIX acquired ParkMe, a leader in parking location, availability and reservations worldwide. INRIX is the preferred provider of parking information and services to leading automakers, transportation agencies and drivers around the world.
