Parkopedia’s parking reservation and payment services are now available in Mercedes-Benz models across more than 5,000 locations in North America while on-demand parking payments are now available across 14 European countries, with reservations possible in four countries.
The automaker’s latest ‘MBUX’ infotainment system uses Parkopedia data and in-car payment technology to simplify the process of finding, reserving and paying for parking and to provide desirable software features to North American customers, ensuring a seamless behind-the-wheel experience. This builds upon the companies’ long-standing relationship, which dates back to 2018 and continues to form part of the automaker’s market-leading ‘digital experience’, offering its drivers personalised in-car services and top-end luxury.
Drivers can access Parkopedia parking information directly through their infotainment system, covering everything from parking opening times and restrictions, to costs and height restrictions. The new head unit provides improved parking search functionality and makes it easy to locate suitable parking close to points of interest or a vehicle’s current location, offering drivers the greatest possible convenience.
In Europe, Mercedes-Benz drivers can also now pay for parking in 14 countries, following the successful initial launch with Parkopedia. Included countries for on-demand payments are Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Portugal, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Norway and Slovenia. Meanwhile, parking reservations can be made in Germany, France, Italy and Belgium.
