In the past, a car’s entertainment system included an AM/FM radio, a cassette or CD player, and the conversations you had with your friends. Thanks to innovations like the Audi MMI® operating system, drivers and passengers have an almost unlimited supply of news, music, information, and more at the touch of a button.
Let’s take a closer look at the infotainment system available in vehicles at Audi Asheville.
Audi MMI®: Infotainment Made Simple and Accessible
The Audi MMI® controls are the heart of the system. There are a number of ways to interact with this system:
- the traditional buttons and knob
- the voice recognition system
- the touchpad that can recognize your handwriting
Whichever one you to choose to use, you will have control of every aspect of your Audi’s infotainment and navigation (if your car is so equipped).
To many drivers, music is an essential part of every ride. Audi vehicles are outfitted with one of three audio systems.
- Standard – 180 watts, 10 speakers, 6 channel amplifier
- Bose® Surround Sound – 600 watts, 14 speakers, 12 channel amplifier
- Bang & Olufsen® Advanced Sound – 1200 watts, 15 speakers, 15 channel amplifier
The stereo itself features the traditional AM/FM radio and CD player but offers much more. You can connect your smartphone using Android Auto™ or Apple CarPlay™ and stream music from Spotify or iTunes. Many models include an SD card reader, enabling you to transfer hundreds of songs to your car quickly.
You’ll never get lost in a strange part of town thanks to Audi’s navigation system. The system will find the quickest route to your destination and allows you to request certain criteria such as avoiding toll roads or highways. The route will appear on your center touchscreen or the available Audi Virtual Cockpit, and there is an option to have the directions dictated to you as you drive.
