The entire Mercedes-Benz 2013 line-up will feature the mbrace2 cloud-based connectivity suite, the latest telematics innovation from the luxury brand. A related promotional campaign will impress upon potential customers how the system keeps them full engaged in their digital life while on the go.

The thirty-second spot is titled All From One Place and debuts today with the 2012 US Open, for which Mercedes-Benz is a presenting sponsor. Extensive digital and social media elements will support the campaign online.

The mbrace2 suite provides drivers new safety features, infotainment, personal assistance and vehicle care.

"Now with mbrace standard across our entire lineup, all of our customers can stay connected to the information and people that matter to them," stated Bernie Glaser, VP of marketing, Mercedes-Benz USA.

And best of all, because it uses cloud technology, they will benefit from having a system that will only get better over time."
