Frequently asked questions

Get answers to your questions.

Here you will find answers to questions we have been asked about this product.

The prerequisite for access to the data is a signed framework agreement between you and us.

To ensure that only vehicles from your customers' fleets are connected, a vehicle verification logic is required. Our team will be happy to support you in implementing the necessary measures.

Yes, of course. Each data package can be activated individually on vehicle level. There is no minimum or maximum purchase per vehicle nor any combination barrier. This way, you can activate one single package for one vehicle and all of them for another one.

Our sales team will be happy to make you an individual offer for your fleet or business case and give you more detailed information on our products. Please use the contact options on our contact page.

The interface integration is billed once. For the data packages, which can be purchased individually at vehicle level, you will receive a monthly invoice.

Yes, there is. Today you can get an insight on how our API works and in two different ways: First, you can test our API with softcars. These are dummy vehicles that simulate the data transmission from real vehicles. Second, you can test our API with real vehicles from one of your specific fleets for a determined trial period.

The availability of the data depends on the compatibility of the vehicle and should be checked individually. For that we offer a ‘Compatibilities API’ which can be queried here with the vehicle identification number and provides all available services for the specific vehicle (credentials needed). You can find a general list of the various Mercedes-Benz Cars and Vans in the ‘Details’ section of Mercedes-Benz /developers.

Our API products actually consist of two APIs. For using the Management API, you need to implement a REST client, which is able to add vehicles to the platform, activate and deactivate services for the vehicles, querying the service activation states and deleting the vehicles from the platform.

For being able to consume vehicle data via the Push API, you need to implement a kafka client respectively a messaging consumer.

The complete documentation on the implementation of our data product can be found here: connect your business - Docs

After sending the activation request via the API, you need to wait for the next ignition state change. This means, once the vehicle is fully ‘online’, the services get activated.

connect your business can be used internationally in numerous countries. This data product is not available in markets where Mercedes-Benz vehicles do not have a communication module as standard. Please contact us to check the availability in your market individually.
