Next time some obscure component or one of the hundred-million lines of code that run your fancy new Mercedes-Benz goes glitchy, just pull into your dealer's holodeck to get it sorted out. Okay, the car and service technician don't get fully immersed in a Star Trek virtual reality den, but with Mercedes-Benz Virtual Remote Support, a set of HoloLens 2 virtual reality goggles running Dynamics 365 Remote Assist software (both by Microsoft) connects a technician at any of Mercedes' 383 dealerships to an expert service rep who might otherwise have to physically travel to the dealerships to solve a thorny service problem—a hassle in normal times, and perhaps necessary in these socially distanced times.

Is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4Matic a Good Road Trip Car?

  Is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 4Matic a Good Road Trip Car? Mercedes-Benz dropped off the long-term GLE 450 4Matic in early April, right as the shutdown from the global pandemic was getting underway. There was nowhere to go, and as such by the end of May, the poor, underused Mercedes family hauler had only 1,984 miles on it. An ominous mileage total if there ever was one, as well as one that's way lower than I'd like to see on the odometer. Solution? Grab a startlingly inexpensive Airbnb just outside of Colorado City, Arizona, (Warren Jeffs country!) just south of the Utah border.

The 2015 Mercedes -Benz ML400 4Matic is a one-year model. It replaces the more powerful 2014 Mercedes ML550 and will be replaced by the new GLE400 for 2016 (stay tuned for more on the GLE in the next couple Your Mercedes Mechanic Could Use Futuristic " Holodeck " for Repairs Soon .

How does it work? The expert sees what the technician wearing the HoloLens 2 VR goggles is looking at and can draw attention to certain areas by dropping arrows or drawing lines on the view they are seeing. In a video example, a thorny three-two downshift harshness problem has stumped the technician, who has already attempted the troubleshooting recommendations from the service manual. The remote advisor suspects a rare situation of a missing part that connects the transmission case to the valve body. She directs the tech's attention to a particular hole in the transmission by overlaying arrows on his field of view to see if it's lodged inside, then they examine the oil pan for loose parts, and then she draws his attention to the area where said pipe should be found on the valve body itself by drawing a line around the area. Finally, she calls up the parts list sheet and indicates item 130 as the part that must be ordered and installed.

  Mercedes-Benz GLB 220d 2020 UK review With seven-seats and a Mercedes badge on its nose, the new GLB is gunning directly for the Land Rover Discovery Sport. How does it stack up in the UK?It handles well for what is quite a tall, slab-sided box on wheels, and while there is a degree of lean through faster corners, you wouldn’t expect otherwise would you? Either way, it’s no deal breaker. Grip is good, and you don’t find yourself second-guessing your steering inputs either.
