Audi is once again underpinning its leadership aspirations in mobile networking with this service. With the aid of an online database the service lists the cheapest filling stations at the current location, the destination or at any other location. For the first time real-time information from the German government’s Market Transparency Unit is also integrated. The driver can sort the list by price or distance and also have the information read aloud using the text-to-speech function. A few clicks are all it takes to set the selected filling station as a navigation destination.
The Audi connect Fuel prices service is available in the A3, A3 Sportback and A3 Sedan models and in virtually all other model lines. Audi connect covers all services that connect an Audi to its owner, the Internet, the infrastructure and other vehicles. Apart from the Fuel prices service, Audi connect includes other services such as traffic information online. On the basis of real-time data, the service shows the traffic on the selected route, suggests where appropriate a sensible alternative route, and helps promote economical motoring.
