After The app is installed on a smartphone and the phone is paired with the AppLink interface either through Bluetooth or USB, a driver just presses the Sync button on the steering wheel and says, "Send Glympse." With that, the vehicle's location is sent to the other parties he has enabled in the app.<br /><br />Any 'Glympsers' can keep track of the vehicle on their own phones or on a map in a web brower and get updates via e-mail, text, Facebook and Twitter. There's a time-limit to 'glympsing' so that after a pre-set time the app will cease updating its location.<br /><br />The <a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/06/09/mercedes-partners-with-glympse-adds-location-sharing-tech-to-a/">app was introduced</a> to the <a href="http://autoblog.com/tag/a-class">Mercedes-Benz A-Class</a> last summer, but we won't be seeing Stuttgart's little hatch in our country for a while.
