Mercedes-Benz USA and SIRIUS XM Radio today announced that SIRIUS Traffic is available on all Mercedes-Benz 2010 Model Year vehicles equipped with navigation and SIRIUS satellite radio.
SIRIUS Traffic is expected to be installed in 70% of the Mercedes-Benz Model Year 2010 lineup, and will be standard on the S-Class, CL-Class, CLS-Class and G-Class models.
SIRIUS Traffic comes pre-activated with a six-month trial subscription for Mercedes-Benz customers along with a six-month trial subscription of the “SIRIUS Everything” satellite radio package.
SIRIUS Traffic provides traffic speed and flow information to vehicles over SIRIUS’ nationwide satellite radio network. SIRIUS Traffic also provides information on traffic incidents, scheduled road closings and road construction. Since SIRIUS Traffic is integrated with the vehicle’s navigation system, the service assists drivers in picking the quickest, safest routes based on real-time traffic conditions.
“SIRIUS Traffic will benefit Mercedes-Benz drivers with traffic information to help them navigate through our country’s major roadways,” said Sascha Simon, Department Manager, Advanced Product Planning, MBUSA. “We are pleased to add this service to SIRIUS’ audio entertainment in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.”
