I know, we’ve gone on and on about the Virtual Cockpit as of late. However, it is making headlines all over the place because of its innovation and intriguing design. The VC is by far and away the best digital gauge screen in the business and is getting people very excited. Myself included. Even bigger news is how it’s going to be utilized on every single Audi model, as at least an optional extra, sometime in the near future.
This is a big deal, because the Virtual Cockpit completely changes the way in which the driver utilizes incoming information. Navigation, multimedia, phone calls and so much more are all immediately in the driver’s line of sight. This makes driving, and using such features, far safer and easier than before. And because of its simplicity, ease of use and attractive design, it isn’t unlikely that other automakers will be using a similar idea in the near future.
In this short video, which is in German but has English subtitles, Audi demonstrates the Virtual Cockpit from a first-person’s perspective. It shows how the screen can go from just two simple gauges, like a traditional car, to a massive navigation screen or even a multimedia screen. It can display any information, or any of the controls, in the car. The Virtual Cockpit is a wonderful tool and one that should be a must have on any new Audi buyer’s option list. If you’re looking for a new Audi and don’t want the Virtual Cockpit, check this video out and see if it changes your mind.
