Can someone try asking Mercedes this?

On my mates A35, the car shows him this screen.

On my car it says the feature isn’t available ... but the only additional option pack to buy from the Mercedes store is the Navigation Services pack??

Quite odd i have this screen on yet the weather function works fine. And local search works too. I can say hey Mercedes find me a kentucky and it shows all local ones to navigate to.

I can even ask for the weather in a different town/city and it responds correctly.

Sit in your car and press the Me button overhead.

I have just been talking to Mercedes about all this kind of stuff (so not sure how credible this info is) and I was told that in order for such services to work full time you have to sign up to what is essentially a internet data contract.
Apparently the car comes with comes 1gb as a free trail and then after that you pay,this could explain why it is working for some and not others,as either the free trial has run out or they have not signed up to whatever it is (Mercedes Me?) that allows you the free trial

Just tried mine and it came up with the full picture screen with weather across is. I've used the sat nav quite a few times and the maps etc. have all updated so I don't know if that will have used up 1gb of data. We'll have to see. What I found after signing in to MM is it took a few days to update everything so I wonder if it could be that as well for no weather maps. @veeeight what's your prognosis on this again please.

Internet data is really just for the internet browser and music streaming directly from MBUX.
Theoretically Weather & Yelp (aka Local Search) are linked to the second embedded sim, the one that's also used to update the maps OTA for example.

So you shouldn't need to add Data-credit to be able to get them.

At least that's the case here in France.

It seems that in UK, if I believe the screenshot above, they are part of the Navigation pack though so if you don't have that pack activated, you wouldn't get Weather or Yelp.

You are correct and it's three years free in the UK as it is throughout the EU I am sure.

Pressed Mercedes Me button ... they weren’t very helpful with the issue. Told me that I needed to purchase the navigation services pack. I explained again and he told me to contact the dealer I bought the car from.

That's not helpful. They've always been quite good when I've pressed the Me button, passing me onto the relevant Me Team to resolve.

Try something else - "Hey Mercedes, show me the nearest Italian Restaurant".
Mine returns a list of Italian restaurants in the area.

Nevermind that, have you asked for Italian (or any other nationality so as not to upset woke people) restaurants in your car yet?

I was curious when I saw this screen because I haven't seen it before, so I checked my Mercedes Me app and I couldn't see the options for weather below. I realised that I had to download the Merecedes Me Data Options app which is seperate to the normal one. I installed it and it showed me that I could purchase Navigation Services which included the weather feature for £49 which lasted for a year. I already have Sat Nav with augmented reality installed in the car from new so I was confused as to why I should have to purchase another navigation app when I already have one installed. I then checked in my car and asked Mercedes to 'show me the weather in Tenerife' and the weather screen came up as shown by the original poster, I then tried my local area Manchester and it showed the weather screen again so I know that it's working for me but my question now is.... What is the Navigation Services app that I can purchase for £49 for a year and how does it differ from the one I already have in my A35?

Yes just tried this and it works! It didn’t workwith any other cuisines i tried a few lol. I tried the weather question again andno luck. It just responds with “no internet connection”.
