Does not work!!!! I have worked for both Mercedes Benz and GM. The GM Onstar app works perfectly every time and was the main reason I was able to wow my clients. I was happy to find out the MBRACE app added remote start but was disappointed when I found out that it doesn't work. How can I feel 100% satisfied with spending 50k for a vehicle and the 1 feature that helps me to decide not to buy a GMC Yukon doesn't work. Don't get me wrong, I love Mercedes first because of safety, but I expect more from them.
Such a disappointment I love my first MB (c class), but this app is such a disappointment. MB is too good to have such crap. I basically only want to remote start my car in winter. Dumbest thing ever...car shuts off when I unlock my door. Wth? I've tried using keyfob, app, and door handle to unlock it. Car shuts off every time! Ugh!!
Outdated app design and poor software quality The app UI is outdated and the access on any feature is slow. Please try to hire some experienced software engineer to re-do the app development and remember follow the Google app design instructions. BTW there can be better utilization of this app, mbrace is a great idea and people would like to see a better design app with more useful features.
Unfortunate UI/UX I love that this is available on Android. Thank you. Would love to see Android Car features in the vehicle. The app is functional, unlike the Mercedes Me app, but the UI and UX leave a lot to be desired. Mercedes should take a page from Tesla and get better devs.
Unreliable app. Upon launch it oftentimes thinks it is in an authenticated state and therefore skips the prompt for entering a PIN. You go directly into the app but any operation you attempt silently fails. The user has to switch to the Tasks/Apps list and manually close the app (swipe) and then re-launch the app in order to get to the PIN prompt. Once that is done, the app will function properly (until the next time you launch the app after authentication expires).
Will rarely start my car. Please fix it! Less expensive cars have this type of application figured out. This app is an embarrassment to Mercedes-Benz.
