Audi is integrating the high-speed
wireless communication standard LTE into its cars. For now, the
option is only available for the S3 Sportback but from November it
will be available for all models in the A3 range, the carmaker says.
The LTE standard - which allows the exchange of large amounts of data via the internet - will be used by Audi's navigation system, MMI navigation plus, and Audi connect. Together these two features cost an extra 3,225 euros (4,280 dollars) for models sold in Germany.
In addition to the onboard systems like navigation, web radio or access to social networks, mobile devices in the car such as tablets and smartphones will be able to connect to the internet using LTE.
The car owner will have to supply their own SIM card.
