SNS Smartphone Interface
If you are looking to integrate your phone features to the car look no further.
Our latest SNS Smartphone Interface is a fully integrated system that lets you connect your Apple or Android based phone and access your phone Apps safely and easily through the car’s main screen.
You can control calls, messages, navigation and even Spotify playlists with voice commands via Siri or Google Now
This Upgrade will give you Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
How it works
- Link your compatible smartphone* to the car via a USB cable or via Bluetooth or WIFI (if compatible) and approved apps automatically appear in full colour on the central Audi MMI screen.
- Control the Apps by pressing via the multi-function steering wheel, MMI Console or touch-screen feature (function depends on the car specification)
- Using Voice Control, you can ask the system to make a call and listen to and dictate messages. For safety reasons, the MMI screen won’t display the text so your attention can remain on the road.
What is Apple CarPlay
If you have an iPhone 5 or later and your car features Apple CarPlay, then you’re good to go. After plugging in your phone via included USB port (CarPlay may be available via Bluetooth or WiFi), you’ll be able to access several functions through the familiar Apple interface on the car infotainment screen.
CarPlay gives access to Maps, Phone functions, Messages and Music as well as other Apps including Spotify, Podcasts, Audiobooks and Apps developed by car manufacturers.
What is Android Auto?
Broadly speaking, the basic features of Android Auto are similar to Apple CarPlay, but it’s Google’s solution to bring your smartphone features into your car.
To get started, you’ll need the Android Auto App and then just plug your phone into your car USB port.
Like CarPlay, Android Auto can also be controlled via the touch-screen, multi function steering wheel or MMI console.
CarPlay supports the standard message system, whereas Android Auto can support several different ones, including WhatsApp, Skype, and Google Hangouts. Overall, there is access to more third party apps through Android Auto, with the most popular likely to be Google Maps.
