The new 2016 Audi TT virtual cockpit boasts high-definition, crystal-clear digital graphics, Google Earth imagery and navigation, haptic feedback, Google-like search, voice command operation and “just write” touch features.
The display is pretty slick, with 60fps PC gaming speeds and Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 processing technology that is reminiscent of the Tesla Model S touchscreen control panel – boasting the same Nvidia Tegra chips. However, Audi’s virtual cockpit sits right in front of the driver instead of on the side and is on a super wide, 12.3 inch, 1440×540 pixel screen.
The interface is visible even in direct sunlight. Sharp 3D imagery with turn-by-turn navigation also comes in handy at night on dark, winding or unfamiliar roads. The cockpit’s “classic” view includes the tachometer and speedometer on each side, with a section for mapping and infotainment in the center. Fuel, temperature and other important vehicle information run along the top and bottom of the display.
