This App is awful. Beside of the known battery issues it's crashing my WiFi connection. The only way to continue using my phone in WiFi mode is to ForceStop the App everytime I'm not driving. Update June 19, 2017 Updated to the latest version. Battery consumption is slightly better, WIFI issue still the same.
Updated the App. It is still very poor. Can't connect to my car Bluetooth for phone connection now. I am not even sure the app works as it is saying my car has been parked for 3 days but the mileage has gone up. None of the dashboard items work either. My car is a 2007 SLK 55 AMG. What can I expect to work?
I'm using this app for 7 months on Samsung S7. Several updates were done which were supposed to resolve the issues which everybody complains about. It is a shame that this product (I mean Mercedes Me adapter and its app) is branded Mercedes... The main issues since ever are: 1. App drains phone battery unacceptably a lot. Even latest updates (with Frequency of connection attempts set to Infrequent) do not improve much. 2. It is impossible to use the bluetooth phone calls when the phone is connected to the adapter. Even recently added setting Reduce data transfer while making telephone calls does not help. 3. The app has so few useful info (that you expect an adapter connected to CAN could read), that makes the whole system to be a toy and completely useless.
Kills the battery and not that useful
Thanks Mercedes team. Application improved alot. Battery usage is improved even though I am not sure if it is due to app update or some other reason. Even no problem with bluetooth connection as I had in past. One question, do you plan to include limited control of car lock/unlock feature in model prior to 2014 make year?
Uninstalled this app. It no longer wanted to connect after a service A maintenance. I'm not visiting the dealer, just to get this app working again. Eats 50% of my battery and drains my phone within 4 hours. Please fix the battery issue. From the other reviews we see that this is known already for at least 4 months. Trip tracking is useless since it uses phone instead of car gps. According to the app i am mainly travelling from no location to no location. I'm not parking in a garage. The app even does not recognize the address when I park at my own property.
