iPod integration [Feb. 28th, 2008|03:57 pm]

I had my Audi A6's system software upgraded to the latest year's model, which includes AMI (the Audi Music Interface), which integrates with the car's MMI system. (which had to be also ugpraded as a result, which came with new navigation software too...)

Absolutely in love.

With this wonderful weather I can't decide now whether I like driving the car with music or the motorcycle.

You need a butler just so you can ask him each morning whether you ought to take the Audi or the BMW today. He, of course, will demurely refuse to respond, befitting his station.

Did you mean that in addition to the ipod integration with the audi, that you have ipod integration with the motorcycle?

I hope it's better than riding with headphones. That always sketches me out because it's hard to hear traffic noise. I'm always paranoid that I'm going to miss something and get smashed up....

No music on the motorcycle... don't think I'd feel safe with that.

yeah, it's sketchy at best... I've only done it while riding in the mountains with little to no cars around.

Obviously not practical because of where you store it, but does the connection work with the iPhone as well?

It does. A friend plugged in her iPhone the other day and "Abba - Dancing Queen" started playing immediately..... :)

That is pretty sweet. I have the Honda iPod hookup thingy and it is absolutely useless, so it's just line-in for me.

now you can skip tracks with your gear shifter and change the volume with your pedals?:)
