Cheers for that info mate but to be truthful i can buy a sat nav that sticks to the window and does the same if not more than the Audi Sat nav for less than half the price
That is very true.
All in-built car systems are very expensive compared to a Tom-Tom or Garmin and they are also expensive to update.
The arguments for the Audi system are:
1.) always there and with no trailing wires or need to recharge a battery.
2.) less of a thief magnet (don't have to remove it and then clean off the sucker marks on the glass that thieves look for)
3.) the aerial is probably better so gains satellite lock easier
4.) the screen is a bit bigger than most Garmins/Tom Toms unless you get the trucker version!
5.) is better integrated in terms of showing up on the DIS and also voice interaction though Tom Toms/Garmins do the voice thing as well.
1.) expensive to buy
2.) expensive to update maps (costs as much as a Garmin to do so!)
3.) has had a few miles/km bugs though now fixed I think
4.) probably lacking some features compared to top end Garmin/Tom Tom
