Audi has become the first carmaker to bring the fast LTE data transfer standard (also known as 4G) to the automobile with full integration.

02 Aug 2013 | International News : Germany

The implementation of the fast speed telecommunication service can be ordered as an option in the Audi S3 Sportback now, and in all other variants of the premium compact from early November. While it is unclear, we presume this service is only available in countries in Europe or the U.S.A for the moment.

Popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter have been tailored to be made vehicle-friendly with a text-to-speech function and a text function with prepared text modules
The German marque believes LTE (Long Term Evolution) technology is very important for Audi connect, the networking of the car with the driver, the Internet and the environment.

The new LTE standard enables the exchange of large amounts of data via the Internet, such as music and films in HD quality.

Activating the service is really simply - all you have to do is insert a suitable SIM card in a dedicated slot on the MMI navigation plus unit fitted in the Audi S3 Sportback and connect the respective devices to the WLAN hotspot integrated into the car.

The MMI navigation plus uses LTE to deliver the tailored services of Audi connect to the driver - from navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View to Audi music stream web radio and online traffic information. In addition, there are over a dozen Audi connect services, with the range expanding rapidly, from a text-to-speech function for e-mail and a dictation function for text messages (SMS).

The LTE standard is expected to provide a strong boost to the seamless use of media stored in the cloud and the networking with other automobiles and the transport infrastructure (car-to-X-communication).
