At the LA Auto Show today, Audi announce that their A3 sedan would be the first vehicle to offer 4G LTE technology embedded in the vehicle's entertainment system. Audi was the first auto maker to implement data service in their vehicles and installed 3G in most of their lineup.
The new 4G LTE connected system will allow for faster loading of Google Earth and Google Street View. It will also allow for thousands of web radio station, Facebook and Twitter alerts, and other connected services. The system provides Wi-fi hotspot access for up to 8 additional devices.
Audi will be releasing details on their US Wireless partner in the coming months with the ability to select from multiple wireless partners and the ability to add the A3 Sedan's 4G LTE to existing data plans.
