[CES 2012] Audi’s range of vehicles are definitely right up there in terms of technology, but how many of us are able to drive an Audi? This has not stopped the German automaker from introducing a range of new features for its Connect System at CES this year, defining Connect as “networked mobility” for its fleet of compatible vehicles. With Audi Connect, you will be greeted by a bunch of new features such as a 7″ 3D display (glassless, I suppose, considering how dangerous it would be to remove a pair 3D glasses while you drive only to put them on when you refer to the screen), an improved control wheel and LTE (Long Term Evolution) integration. Internet on wheels, so to speak, but just which carrier will Audi hook up to, that remains to be seen. The Audi A3 will be the first car to receive these upgrades, although it is still a good one and a half years away before that happens. Audi also has a next generation heads-up display (HUD) in the pipeline that brings back memories of Minority Report, as you will be able to view projected information on your windshield.
Update: Reader Dave did mention that the Audi Connect System can be found the new A6, A7 and A8, and is making its way the A4 and A5 ranges as well. T-Mobile is the data provider of choice.
