Apps You Should Get if You’re Driving an Audi
While Audis are already famed for their in-car technology and gadgets, there are even more impressive ways to interact with your car through your smartphone. Audi has created a series of must-have apps to help every car owner have an even better driving experience.
We are not talking about apps to help with directions as there are lots of those out there already.
We wanted to share with you, some specific apps for Audi owners, so we spoke to Emily at www.bigmotoringworld.co.uk. They have hundreds of used Audis for sale and know their Audis inside out. Emily shares some apps with us that are all designed to make the car-owning experience even more memorable.

No more scrabbling around trying to find the helpline phone number which came with your membership and you hadn’t looked at since joining a roadside assistance service. With this app, you can call for help quickly and easily at the touch of a button.
But even better, if your car is still driveable, it will give you the exact location of the nearest Audi specialist center, enabling you to make your own way there rather than having to wait around for someone to come and give you a tow. This app really does help to put Audi drivers’ minds at ease while out on the road.
5. e-tron® connect
If you own an Audi A3 e-tron vehicle, this app is perfect for you as it has been designed specifically for this type of car. The app allows you to use a smartphone to check your car and manage functions.

You can also use the app to start up the air conditioning or the charging process remotely. You can even set it to charge or turn on the air conditioning at a set time – to make sure the car is all ready to go when you are.
This series of apps have been designed with the Audi driver in mind, with most applicable to all Audi makes and models, with a couple of exceptions. Whether you opt to use the videos and 360-degree tours to understand your own car better, or you are an avid fan of the brand so devour the library, there is an app for every type of Audi lover.
If you want more practical applications, then the Audi connect app is the best around to improve your driving experience, with the option to send your destination directly to your car, rather than faffing about trying to programme a sat nav.
