Audi A8: First production vehicle equipped with Google Earth

Audi A8
The new Audi A8 will be the first production vehicle equipped with Google Earth. Great move!

With a SIM card inserted into the A8’s MMI setup (or data-enabled phone paired via Bluetooth) Google Earth can provide drivers with a three-dimensional view of their surroundings displayed on the A8’s eight-inch LCD display, showing satellite imagery and terrain modeling, along with all the traditional navigation system’s functionality both online and off. The integration of Google Earth is set to go live on the A8 sometime in the middle of 2010, soon after Audi’s new flagship goes on sale in the spring.
