Technology Package for Audi A6 and A7

Audi UK announced launch of a new optional package for the A6 and A7 Sportback.

The new ‘one-stop-shop’ option available for all Audi A6 and A7 Sportback offers a bunch of technology features in one package, with features including Google Earth navigation mapping, in-car Wi-Fi and the Audi pre-sense multi-level safety system. In the A7 Sportback, this list is also supplemented by a sophisticated head-up display which projects navigation and entertainment information onto the windscreen so that it appears to float around two metres ahead of the car.

The package integrates fully with the normal services such as MMI Touch fingertip recognition system, a colour Driver’s Information System, Audi Music Interface iPod connection and a Bluetooth mobile phone interface.


It costs £3,250 for A6 models and £3,750 for the A7 Sportback, saving at least £1,085 when compared with specifying the options individually.

Online services

The worldwide web expands its horizons when the Technology Package Advanced is specified for the A6 and A7. Through the Mobile Phone Preparation – High option, passengers can take advantage of online services provided by Google, such as Google Earth maps for navigation, while also surfing the internet and sending e-mail. Access to these impressive features comes courtesy of a Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) module located in the MMI navigation plus head unit.

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.

MMI navigation plus comprises two modules – a radio unit combining the functions of tuner and sound system and a main unit incorporating a DVD drive, two SD card readers and a 60-GB hard disk containing navigation data. One-third of its capacity is also reserved as storage for phone and music data.

Thanks to a dedicated NVIDIA 3D graphics processor the navigation system plus not only displays three-dimensional images of exceptional quality on its expanded eight-inch high resolution colour monitor, but can even display the cover art for audio titles in vivid detail.

Fingertip recognition

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. As an alternative, advanced voice control also allows the city and street, phone number or music track to be spoken.

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.

The list of less immediately visible but no less valuable features also included in the Technology Package Advanced begins with Audi pre sense plus, the most all-encompassing version of this advanced multi-level safety system.
