Audi Connect adds Google Streetview and Internet Radio along with Navigation system

Audi has recently announced that its Connect system will adopt two new features, Google Stretview as well as Internet radio in an attempt to better cater to customers’ infotainment systems.

Audi's new "Audi music stream" application lets drivers tune in to international radio stations via the internet. And how about picturing your destination as you drive there? No problem: Just call up real-life images via Street View.

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 company statement reads, explaining how the new features work
