More App Features


Get a push notification when a car appears

We know. It's tricky to get an available car2go during rush hour. It's also a pain to constantly monitor the carsharing app for the next car that shows up. So we got you covered with one awesome feature. The radar sends you a push notification the moment a car2go becomes available. You can even set multiple radars at different times and locations.

1. Start the carsharing app

2. Tap on the radar icon on the map. Or long-tap (press and hold) on the map until the radar pops up

3. Set your desired start time and search radius

4. Repeat the steps above to set more radars

You can see all set radars under "List". Each radar expires after 1 hour. In selected locations, you can auto-reserve the first car the radar finds.

You'll find the radar at the bottom of the map (iOS) or in the upper-right corner (Android).


Refine your search for the right vehicle

So many cars, so little time. With hundreds of cars of different types and prices in the city, it can be tricky to find the right one for your needs. Maybe you want a baby seat. Or you feel like a Mercedes-Benz today. Or an electric vehicle. Or more luggage room for your shopping bags. Or seat heating. (Just kidding, all our cars have seat heating.) Use the filter to refine your search by specifying what you're looking for.

1. Start the app

2. Tap on the filter icon on the map

3. Select the car types and features you're looking for and tap "Start"

You can even use the filter to see all DriveNow cars in your city. The filter settings will stay the same until you edit them again.

You'll find the filter at the bottom of the map (iOS) or in the upper-right corner (Android).


Tell us if the car is damaged

Before starting your trip, you should check the car for damages. (Yup, just like you were taught during your driver's lessons.) Besides caring for your own safety on the road, this ensures that you won't be held responsible for damages possibly caused by drivers before you. No need to report minor damages, though.

1. Start the app

2. Tap on a car and start your rental

3. Walk around the car for a quick check

4. If you spot anything, like a flat tire or a crack in the windshield, tap on "Report damage"


Make the car's headlights blink

So you've reserved a car2go, but have no idea which one it is. This features comes in handy when you're looking for a car2go in crowded parking garages, such as at the airport. To help you find your reserved car, just use the "blink" feature. The headlights will flash so you'll know which car it is. Available in all Mercedes models and also in the newer smart cars.
