INRIX said it is providing the traffic information services that will bring improved navigation to Audi’s new A6.
The US-based company said its INRIX XD Traffic software debuts in the A6, which will feature the German premium carmaker’s new MMI navigation system.
The system will allow drivers to get real-time traffic information that INRIX receives from more than 4 million GPS-enabled vehicles and mobile devices. This information is then matched with other public and private sources. The system covers roads across Europe and North America.
“The combination of INRIX’s XD Traffic and Connected Services platform helps Audi become the first car manufaccturer in the world to deliver a high-quality and reliable connected navigation system,” Ulrich Beeskow, Audi’s head of development for connected navigation, said in a press statement.
The new service will be available initially in select European countries as part of an options package that includes Bluetooth mobile phone connectivity.
