Audi smartphone interface

The Audi smartphone interface brings Apple Car Play and Android Auto and thus the familiar smartphone environment into the vehicle. Content such as navigation, phone, music and select third-party apps appear in a separate MMI menu. Such content can also appear in the Audi virtual cockpit (in the Audi TT and Audi R8). Apple Carplay and Android Auto are capable of showing useful apps like Waze, Google Maps, Spotify and much more.

Activation is performed remotely, you will only need empty SD card and 30 min of your time. You will not need any DIAG tools.

Connect your phone to your car display—your Android Auto apps show up onscreen, just like that. Tap to get driving directions or talk to send a text. Even call your mom, hands-free. Android Auto will help you focus on the road. And have fun along the way. Just plug in and go.

CarPlay is a smarter, safer way to use your iPhone while you drive. You can get directions, make calls, send and receive messages, and enjoy your favorite music. All on your car’s built-in display. And with iOS 14, CarPlay introduces all-new app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay Dashboard.

The power and simplicity of Apple Maps is available in your car. Apple CarPlay can predict where you’re going using addresses from your email, text messages, contacts, and calendars. And with a more detailed map, turn‑by‑turn spoken directions, and immersive 3D experiences, it’s easier than ever to get where you need to go. One‑tap access to your go‑to and must‑see destinations also helps you find more to see and do when you get there — whether you’re searching for points of interest, driving to a favorite restaurant, or looking for nearby gas stations.

CarPlay also works with your car’s controls — knobs, buttons, touchpad, or touchscreen. And the apps themselves have been reimagined for the car, so you can use them while your eyes and hands stay where they belong.

Usually both Apple Carplay and Android Auto are supported by the MMI system.
