Daimler AG is now offering a finance app from Morningstar (MORN) through the COMAND Online system in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
Available in more than 20 languages, the Morningstar finance app provides Mercedes-Benz drivers and passengers with global financial information for more than 9 million equities, derivatives, bonds, indexes, commodities, and currencies.
"As one of the largest producers of premium cars and commercial vehicles, Daimler AG is among the world's most successful automotive companies. We have been working side by side with Daimler to develop this innovative application for its Mercedes-Benz line of vehicles," Jeremy Diamond, head of equity and market data for Morningstar, said. "As car systems become even more sophisticated, we're going to see significant expansion of capabilities beyond digital radio and navigation tools. Morningstar is at the forefront of apps that allow drivers and passengers to stay connected in their vehicles and enhance the driving experience."
