Display and controls

The Audi virtual cockpit and MMI touch are available as high-end options for the new Audi A5 Coupé. The driver can intuitively use a wealth of functions via the two central components of the innovative MMI display and control concept.

A large, easy-to-read analog speedometer and tachometer are standard in the new Audi A5 Coupé. Between them is the display of the driver information system (DIS). In the basic version the DIS has a 5-inch display; the color 
Audi MMI display measures 7 inches. MMI navigation plus (and the Audi design selection) bring a color 7-inch driver information system and an 8.3-inch Audi MMI display on board. 

Audi virtual cockpit

For the new A5 Coupé, there is the Audi virtual cockpit as an alternative to the analog round instruments. It assumes that MMI navigation plus with MMI touch is on-board. The various display options offer the driver added convenience and numerous customization possibilities. Thanks to its resolution of 1,440 x 540 pixels, the large TFT monitor (12.3 inch) displays richly detailed graphics.

The image is refreshed 60 times per second so that the virtual needle of the tachometer spins smoothly and very precisely. Scrolling operations in lists are based on a physical model that considers such factors as inertia, elasticity and damping.

The Audi virtual cockpit presents comprehensive and diverse information, from navigation arrows to the dynamic animation of the navigation map and infotainment content (including Audi connect services) to the graphics of some assistance systems. The display changes its context-related color scheme according to the main menu selected. In the Media menu, for example, it glows orange, while green is used for the Phone menu. At the lower edge are permanent displays of outside temperature, time of day and odometer readings as well as warning and information symbols.

As with the DIS display in the analog instrument, the driver operates the Audi virtual cockpit with the optional multifunction steering wheel plus. The switches on the left spoke are used to move through the menus of the audio system, onboard computer and – if equipped – navigation system and telephone. Located on the right side of the steering wheel are the volume roller, the voice control button, telephone express controls and the skip function for quickly changing the radio station or song.

The driver can switch between two user interfaces by pressing the “View” button on the multifunction steering wheel plus. The infotainment mode is dominated by a central window – it offers plenty of space for items such as the navigation map or lists from the telephone, radio and audio functions. The tachometer and speedometer are presented here as round instruments. In the classic view, the instruments are approximately the same size as analog instruments, and the center window is correspondingly smaller.

Always in view:
the head-up display

The head-up display in the new Audi A5 Coupé projects relevant information onto the windshield as easily comprehensible symbols and digits, thus enabling the driver to keep his or her eyes on the road. A TFT monitor with white LED backlighting generates the color image. Two aspherical mirrors enlarge and reflect it, as well as compensating for distortion caused by the geometry of the windshield.

The information appears to hover around two meters (6.6 ft) in front of the driver within a window area measuring 200 x 80 mm (7.9 x 3.1 in). The human eye registers the information extremely quickly – there’s no need to switch from the accustomed long-range vision. The driver can use the Audi MMI to specify which information should be shown in the head-up display; the height and brightness can also be adjusted here.

Slim tablet look:
the new Audi MMI display

The new Audi MMI monitor embodies Audi’s innovative technology and design expertise. With its slightly rounded, black glass surface, it looks like a premium tablet computer. The monitor is just 13 millimeters (0.5 in) thick. It has a discreet silver-colored magnesium frame in the top version with Audi MMI Navigation plus. The brilliantly resolved animations shown on its 8.3-inch surface are of unmatched quality.

MMI control element

The system is controlled via the Audi MMI control elements on the wide, asymmetrically split center console. Its design and position vary according to the car’s transmission. If the car is equipped with S tronic or tiptronic, the terminal is placed close to the instrument panel; the low automatic selector lever offers the wrist a comfortable resting place. With a manual gearbox, the selector lever is in front of the MMI terminal. In both cases, the volume dial and a storage tray are located on the right of the MMI control terminal. This arrangement makes the philosophy of the new Audi A5 Coupé clear. Although the cockpit is rigorously tailored to the driver, the Audi MMI display can be used equally well by the front passenger.

The focal point of the terminal is the round rotary pushbutton, whose ring is illuminated in white with the optional MMI touch. Its surface is home to the touch-sensitive touchpad. The touchpad is used to input characters and also for multifinger gestures, enabling the driver to zoom in on the map, for example.

Toggle switches for the most important basic menus, the general Menu button, the Back button and eight freely-programmable favorite buttons supplement the terminal. Two further buttons to the left and right of the rotary pushbutton provide access to the Function and Option menus, which supplement many areas of operation. For example, the driver can select the frequency band of the desired station in the Radio menu or call up traffic information in the Map menu. With these functions and options, the driver can get directions to an entered destination and display nearby parking lots or save the destination to the Favorites list.

Flat hierarchies:
new menu structure

The menu structure of the Audi MMI has also been redesigned from the ground up: With its flat hierarchies, operation is based on modern smartphones. An intelligent, easy-to-understand logic replaces static menu trees, and frequently used functions can be reached with just a few clicks.

A particular highlight is MMI search, which is available for all basic menus and like a search engine uses free text entry. It generally answers queries after just a few letters, taking into consideration the car’s current location. When searching for a place to eat, for instance, simply enter the name of the restaurant and the first letters of the city and a list of hits throughout Europe appears together with the addresses. Searching for songs, albums and radio stations also works this way.

Voice control system:
“Where can I refuel?”

The voice control system has also been extensively updated. It now understands a large number of everyday expressions. To call a contact, the driver can just say “I would like to call Peter Miller.” The navigation system also responds to natural language inputs (“Where can I refuel?”, “Where is the closest Italian restaurant?”). The new voice control system, which also permits dictation of text messages, is also available without an Internet connection and works with the Radio and Media menus as well.
