The infotainment lineup for the new Audi A1* and A1 Sportback* was conceptualized as a modular system. The base system is the standard Audi radio with four loudspeakers. The first extension stage is the MMI radio with three tuners, SD card reader, AUX-IN port and eight loudspeakers; it already offers MMI operating logic and a fold-out 6.5-inch monitor.
The connectivity package can be ordered as a supplement to MMI radio; it integrates a Bluetooth interface and the Audi music interface (AMI) to connect to a mobile player. If the customer later buys an SD card with navigation data or chooses the navigation package when ordering the car, the MMI radio serves as a navigation system. The connectivity package is also available together with the leather multifunction steering wheel and the driver information system as part of the media package.
The top solution of the lineup is MMI navigation plus, which sets standards in this vehicle class. The system can store 20 GB of music data; it integrates two card readers, the AMI, a Bluetooth interface, CD/DVD drive and speech control. Now, the driver can speak the entire navigation address in a single step and also control the main functions of the radio, media and telephone by voice. The fold-out monitor presents graphics in 3D representation; the navigation map also has a three-dimensional appearance.
As a supplement to MMI navigation, Audi offers the hardware module Audi connect including car phone, which connects to the Internet over a UMTS modem. Passengers can surf and email from as many as eight mobile devices via the integrated Wi-Fi hotspot. For the driver, it delivers tailored Internet services from Audi connect to the car – from online traffic information to navigation with Google Earth and Google Maps Street View and finally web radio via the Audi music stream.
Other modular units are available for MMI navigation plus and MMI radio – a six‑disc CD changer, a tuner for digital radio reception and the Audi phone box, which interfaces the driver’s mobile phone to the vehicle antenna. An option for hi-fi fans is the Audi sound system, which drives ten loudspeakers with 180 watts of power.
The top audio solution is the Bose surround sound system that can be selected. Its digital amplifier has 465 watts of output power, and it can play back stereo signals in 5.1 surround sound. It uses a microphone to analyze intrusive noises and adjusts playback accordingly. In this system, 14 loudspeakers are installed in the car, including a subwoofer that is mounted under the luggage compartment.
