2011 Audi A8 to Come Google-Ready

2011 Audi A8

Unveiled in Miami just a few weeks ago, the 2011 Audi A8 will hit the U.S. market in late 2010. The latest word from Audi is that the European version will come stocked with in-car Googling. Several Google features will be integrated into the new multimedia interface, which is already one of the more intriguing aspects of the new flagship.

Audi plans on offering Google services beyond what are available from other car manufacturers such as BMW. Functionality will extend to Google-based mapping, service locating and Google Earth waypoints. Users will also be able to send locations from a computer to the car’s email address to streamline route mapping. Google services will be accessible via voice or the MMI’s touchpad.
