Audi lovers and Apple geeks unite: Audi is displaying some of their models, including the Audi R8, at this year’s Apple Expo in Paris which is still running. If you are in Paris, make sure to pay a visit.
Great news for all iPod fans: as far as we can read the article all Audi A3 Sportback and Audi A5 will come factory-equipped with an iPod!
Here’s a rough translation of the Audi France site, done by our reader AJ:
For its 2nd participation at the Apple Expo, Audi will
display on a perfectly white stand its dedicated MP3 connector for
the iPod. What you’ll find: the iPod adapator on the A3 Sportback and
the Audi Music Interface on the new Audi A5, both of which are
equipped with a new iPod (YES IT DOES SAY THAT). Also not to miss,
the impetuous R8, central in the Audi lounge. Available on the Audi
A5, A6, A8, Q7, allroad quattro and the new Audi A4, the Audi Music
Interface allows the transfer of menus from the iPod into the
interface of the MMI [i.e. Audi’s multimedia console). From the multi-
function steering wheel or the control unit of the MMI, the driver
controls his music library: tracks, podcasts, artists names or also
Audi also struck a deal with EMI in France so you can listen to all EMI songs in your myAudi area via internet radio. Great move!
