- In-car reception of over 4,000 internet radio stations worldwide through the new “Audi music stream” app
- Access a smartphone’s music library via WLAN
- Audi connect and Google Street View enable new navigation based on true-to-life street visualization
“Audi music stream” introduces a new Audi connect service. This smartphone app lets drivers tune into radio stations via the internet and store them in their Audi infotainment system. A driver’s smartphone can be connected to an MMI navigation plus system via WLAN. If there is nothing worthwhile on the radio, just access the phone’s music library wirelessly via the MMI, choose a file and play it.
Navigation with Google Earth images and Street View means you can now view high-resolution aerial and satellite images, photos, land formations, streets and their names as well as business information in your car. The system pre-loads data for your selected route and merges them with information from MMI navigation plus. The Bluetooth online car phone’s UMTS module makes true-to-life 360° panorama pedestrian’s eye-view images available in-car.
Audi connect stands for connected mobility combining all applications and developments linking existing and future Audi models to the internet, to their owner and to the surrounding infrastructure. A built-in UMTS module and a customer’s SIM card on board the car integrate online information such as navigation with point-of-interest search, Google Earth images and Street View, weather, news, Audi traffic information online or Audi music stream, directly into Audi’s optional
MMI navigation plus.
A WLAN hotspot connects mobile devices to the internet from the rear seats while driving or from all seats when the car is stopped. Audi connect thus stands for extraordinary infotainment and entertainment capabilities that raise in-car comfort and fun to a new level.
Editor’s Note: We are very excited to hear about these new Audi Connect technologies. We do not yet know if current Audi Connect customers will get this update, and if so how soon it will be available.
