Audi Connect: A smartphone you can drive.
For years, cellphones have been getting increasingly smaller but recently, technology is going in the opposite direction. For instance, the iPhone 11 is currently Apple’s largest smartphone. Yet Audi is doing one better. They are taking the information superhighway to the actual highway with Audi Connect.
Audi Connect is a driver-assistive and connective system built right into your Audi. It bundles what you love about your smartphone with the vehicle, to provide real-time information and multiple digital functions.
Connecting the Dots
To use the full functionality of Audi Connect, your vehicle must be paired with a myAudi account. This account must then be verified by your local dealer. When you sign up for a myAudi account, you’ll activate the full range of exclusive features and services for your Audi. The myAudi app is also available on Apple iOS 10 and above and Android 6 and above.
The Audi Connect services are bundled in the following packages:
Audi Connect Navigation and Infotainment
Audi Connect Navigation and Infotainment, available on selected Audi models built in 2019 and later, keeps you connected to your world even on the go. With high-speed 4G Internet access embedded in the vehicle, you can turn your Audi into a powerful Wi-Fi hotspot and seamlessly stream a range of entertainment and information services to you and your Audi. Audi Connect Navigation and Infotainment includes:
Traffic Sign Information.
Assess the road ahead while you drive. Get real-time updates on changes in speed limits, temporary traffic, and construction signs sent directly to your navigation system.
