New technologies set for Audi A6 and A7 Sportbacks31 January 2012
Technophiles will welcome a new 'one-stop-shop' option package available for all Audi A6 and A7 Sportback models which unites nine advanced convenience and occupant protection features including Google Earth navigation mapping, in-car Wi-Fi and the Audi pre-sense multi-level safety system. The Technology Package Advanced brings out the very best in the Saloon, Avant, allroad and Sportback ranges already famed for their technical sophistication.
The list of entertainment and information enhancements included in the technology package advanced includes MMI navigation plus with the MMI Touch fingertip recognition system, a colour driver's information system, Audi music interface iPod connection and a Bluetooth mobile phone interface giving access to Google Earth navigation maps and creating an in-car Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Bluetooth online car phone incorporates a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) hotspot, and providing a data-capable SIM card or a mobile phone with SIM access profile is on board it enables front and rear seat passengers to simultaneously connect as many as eight terminal devices – from a laptop to an iPad – to the Internet, regardless of their operating system.
The MMI Touch system with black panel technology is the easiest route to the system's many functions. The driver can enter a destination or a telephone number by drawing letters and numbers on the touch-sensitive control panel with a finger. The system provides brief acoustic feedback after each character so that eyes don't have to be diverted from the road.
The Audi Music Interface conveniently integrates mobile players or iPhones into the on-board audio system, and enables tracks to be displayed on the in-dash monitor and scrolled and selected via the MMI Touch pad or control knob.
Working closely with a host of other systems, and conveying warnings to the driver using visual and acoustic signals, Audi pre sense plus constantly monitors driving conditions and initiates preventive protective measures if its sensors detect an imminent collision. These measures include everything from tensioning of the seatbelts, closure of the windows and sunroof, and automatic cautionary illumination of the adaptive rear brake lights to full autonomous braking at up to 5m per second if an unavoidable impact is foreseen.
The Audi side assist blind spot warning system kicks in at 19mph, its two rear-mounted radar sensors monitoring activity behind the car at a distance of approximately 70m.
