FAQ

Frequently asked questions

Here you can find a collection of questions we have been asked by our customers. If your questions are not included, please feel free to contact us.

What requirements do I have to meet in order to use the API?

The prerequisite for the accessibility of data is a signed framework contract between the customer and the provider Mercedes-Benz Connectivity Services GmbH.

Can the individual data packages be combined with one another?

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.

What do the integration of the API and the individual data – packages cost and how are they billed?

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 form to get in touch with us.

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

Is there any way to test the API?

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 your own or for one of your specific fleets for a determined trial period.

Which vehicle models are supported?

The availability of the data depends on the compatibility of the vehicle and should be checked individually. Our API can be used for various Mercedes-Benz Cars and Vans. You can find a detailed list in the 'Details' section of the Mercedes-Benz Developers Portal.

How does the integration of the API into my system landscape work?

Our API products actually consist of two APIs. For using the Management API, the customer needs 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, the customer needs to implement a kafka client respectively a messaging consumer.

How long does it take to activate a service?

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.
