The top infotainment offering is MMI navigation plus with MMI touch. The high-end system is a versatile media center. It offers two card readers, the Audi Music Interface (AMI) for connecting portable media players, a DVD drive, an Aux-in connection and a Bluetooth interface for hands-free telephony and audio streaming. 10 GB of flash storage for music files, eight speakers and a speed limit display based on the navigation map round out the spectrum. The Wi-Fi hotspot allows passengers to surf the Internet from their mobile devices.
New: Audi smartphone interface and Audi Sport Performance app
The Audi smartphone interface is available for the TT RS for the first time. It brings Apple Car Play and Android Auto into the car. Selected apps, such as telephone, navigation, music and a series of third-party apps, can thus be mirrored from the smartphone to the Audi virtual cockpit via USB. Content is easily accessible via the multifunction steering wheel, voice command and the rotary pushbutton.
New in the program is the Audi Sport Performance app, which makes it possible to compare two lap times. The driver chooses a racetrack from the database, alternatively drives a route with the car or creates a route using Google Maps. The app displays the speed, time difference, steering angle, g-forces, as well as rpm, gear, brake pressure and accelerator pedal position on the smartphone.
Drivers also see their current position on the track in Google Maps using the GPS signal. The app draws its data from the on-board electronics; access is via Wi-Fi. The data can be exported from the smartphone at a later point. The app also allows the creation of multiple driver profiles. Their use is permitted only on closed racetracks, not on public roads. The app for Android and iOS can be downloaded from the respective stores.
Surfing the web with LTE: Online services and the Audi MMI connect app
The Audi connect module is the ideal complement to MMI navigation plus. It uses the fast LTE standard to deliver the brand’s Internet services to the car, including navigation with Google Earth and Google Street View; traffic, travel and parking information and also access to Twitter.
The free Audi MMI connect app, which customers can download from the Google Play Store or the iOS App Store, offers even more possibilities. Drivers can look up where their TT RS is parked and display the appointment calendar from their smartphone in the Audi virtual cockpit. They can then use the meeting location as a navigation destination and save the telephone number of the person to be met as a contact. The app also enables online media streaming from web radio stations and access to the Aupeo! service and the music portal Napster. Data is transfered from the smartphone to the MMI via Wi-Fi. On top of all that, there is also traffic and travel information. A primary advantage of the Audi MMI connect app is that – just like with Audi connect – drivers can control all functions via the MMI system, as the content is displayed in the Audi virtual cockpit. They can therefore continue to devote their full attention to what is happening on the road.
Inductive charging: the Audi phone box.
The Audi phone box in the center console wirelessly connects the cell phone to the car antenna per near-field coupling. This guarantees the best possible reception. Wireless charging according to the Qi standard provides for a full battery. With this system, the current flows inductively from a coil in the base of the box to the receiver coil in the smartphone.
680 watts, 12 loudspeakers: the Bang & Olufsen Sound System
In the factory-fitted configuration, eight loudspeakers flood the interior with sound. With the optional Audi sound system, this number increases to nine. The Bang & Olufsen Sound System drives 12 loudspeakers, including two bass boxes in the doors, with 680 watts of power for fascinating surround sound. Rather than small holes, their bezels feature fine grooves. The woofers have anodized aluminum elements bearing the logo of the Danish hi-fi specialists. At night, narrow LED light guides emit white light.
