Why is the Mercedes me Adapter not compatible with plug&play, and why is a SIM card not used to send data?
Ligtbox Caption Text
The Mercedes me Adapter is a retrofit part tested and approved by Daimler AG for the compatible model series. A raft of technical and organizational measures have been implemented to protect against tampering and access by unauthorised parties. These include the fact that your vehicle is linked to your Mercedes me user account by your preferred Mercedes-Benz service partner and the fact that your Mercedes me Adapter is activated via a guided process in the app. The security procedures are continually enhanced as new technology becomes available. We have deliberately avoided a hardware solution with a separately integrated mobile-phone module as this would result in additional costs for you as well as the need for another contractual agreement. Furthermore, you have better control over data usage when using your smartphone and can change the settings as and when required.
