Audi fleet prepared to telephone with
Even at the time of its launch, the
first mobile phone from Apple can be used in all Audi models.
The big seller in the U.S. (more than 270,000 phones sold in the
first 30 hours) is eagerly awaited in this country too.
According to a survey, every third Apple fan would definitely
like to buy the phone and, what is more, “right away”.
Audi and Apple have been working
closely to ensure that the full functionality of the iPhone is
available in most Audi models. The only requirement is the
mobile phone preparation with the Bluetooth interface,
optionally available in all Audi model lines. Alongside the
standard hands-free functions (accept/reject call/hands-free),
the mobile phone preparation supports the display of the signal
strength and the provider’s name, in addition to the transfer of
the telephone directory including the icons “Work”, “Home”,
“Mobile” and the call lists.
In addition to making telephone calls, the Audi
music interface (available as an optional extra for the A5, A6, A8 and
Q7) allows customers to enjoy the iPhone’s music playback function in
supreme quality via the in-car sound system. What is more, thanks to the
Audi MMI, customers can navigate conveniently through their music
compilations by artist, track title, playlists and genre – in exactly
the same way they are accustomed to from their iPod.
