Mercedes-Benz iPhone

Earlier this month we saw the launch of a new Mercedes-Benz application for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch called Silver Star, which is essentially a program outlining the automaker’s Museum highlights back in Germany. Now, Mercedes-Benz Financial has launched a new program also for the iPhone and iPod Touch that allows you to make a payment on your Mercedes-Benz vehicle.

The app is aimed at customers who have a loan or a lease with Mercedes-Benz Financial and enables users to view their account status, make a payment and get a payoff quote on their vehicles. However, even if you don’t own a Mercedes you can still use the app to check out the brand’s full lineup, find the nearest dealer or get driving directions.

The free application is available at and customers first have to register at before they can use it.

According to Mercedes-Benz Financial senior marketing manager Michael Kanzleiter, nearly three-quarters of Mercedes owners use a smart phone and a third of these use Apple products. However, a similar application designed for Blackberrys will be available within the next six months.
