Since Audi Connect already integrates Google Earth, the system can pre-load data for your navigation route and work with your smartphone’s UTMS module to give you a 360-degree view. In addition to that, the new Audi music stream is a smartphone app that allows you to browse Internet radio and play your favorite one using the vehicle’s audi system.

“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 company statement reads, explaining how the new features work.
