We'd like to formally invite Jon Briggs to join us for every car journey we make from now on. Why do we need a radio presenter and voice over man on board? For starters, he's excellent fun and knows his gadgets but more importantly he's the voice of Siri in the UK.
And Mercedes-Benz has just announced it's the latest to join the voice-controlled Apple-wagon with a new Siri-powered COMAND multimedia system, rolling out first to the A-class series of its motors.
Stick your iPhone 4S into the built-in display and you'll be able to get cracking with two apps – Digital DriveStyle and Drive Kit Plus– that let you send messages, choose iTunes tracks and check the internet via voice control. There's also a personalised radio service, Garmin navigation software and social media integration.
The rest of you Mercedes drivers needn't worry too much either – the update will be coming to B-, C- and E-class cars from autumn 2012. And Mercedes-Benz plan to launch more apps – like a News app coming at the end of March. Hop in then, Jon.
