“Hey Mercedes, start Tourguide”

In response to the voice command “Hey Mercedes, start Tourguide”, the MBUX (Mercedes Benz User Experience) infotainment system reads out extensive information about points of interest along the route. The “Tourguide” audio travel guide is available as part of the “MBUX Voice Assistant” from Mercedes me in the EQS, EQE, C Class, S Class and AMG SL as well as the new GLC and the new EQS SUV, which have been in production since June 1, 2022. It adds an interesting and entertaining feature to the existing travel information functions. Announcements begin automatically when the car passes the first sign. On holiday trips or weekend getaways, or even for business travellers, “Tourguide” provides a welcome and informative interlude on longer journeys. Of course, the driver can also deactivate the service at any time, again by voice command or by touch.

Initially, the new audio travel guide is only available in Germany but will later be rolled out in other countries as well. The system responds to the approximately 3,400 brown-coloured tourist information signs along German autobahns.
