Delphi Provides Audi with a new and Innovative Connectivity Navigation Radio Platform

Delphi’s Connectivity Navigation Radio (CNR) platform is allowing Audi to differentiate its vehicles with a new and innovative infotainment product. The flexible media center addresses multiple market needs, including phase diversity dual-tuner reception and the capability of adding different digital tuner modules (e.g. digital audio broadcast/DAB) and different types of connectivity and was recently unveiled on the Audi A1. Delphi’s CNR supports navigation functionality with a high-resolution color display and 2.5D graphics, and includes map data for East and West Europe on a single SD card.

The connectivity functionality allows drivers to connect a portable device such as an iPod, another music player or any data storage device to the vehicle’s audio system. Using the world standard Bluetooth, the unit can be configured to allow hands-free calls or even stream music from the driver’s mobile phone to the high-performance system. The scalable design also helps to differentiate vehicles while fulfilling today’s and tomorrow’s requirements for radio reception, user connectivity and navigation.
