Here’s the latest intel about Audi’s connect initiative which brings 4G LTE broadband internet to your car.
To that end, Audi’s unifying its infotainment initiatives under the brand Audi Connect, so it will be absolutely clear how you can pimp your ride with tech when you walk into an Audi dealership. That is, if you don’t already have Audi Connect, because the company claims it’s already present in the A8, A7 and A6. Those three automobiles can presently add an optional UMTS modem for online apps, though Audi’s also working with Alcatel-Lucent to bring faster LTE connectivity by 2014. Expect a software update sooner than that: this summer, Audi hopes to add live traffic data and voice commands to control a suite of Google services as well.
