As you say you can also do a lot with voice and in this respect the new A6 is head and shoulders above any other voice enabled cars I have driven and it works brilliantly. The car has the tech pack with virtual cockpit and that really lifts the cabin.

    The rest of the car is very impressive, incredibly refined for a 2litre diesel and very well finished even by Audi standards. Having come from a BMW 335d, I thought I would notice a big drop in performance, but on the road in day to day driving it pulls well and on a longish run earlier this week on a mix of A roads and dual carriageways hit 50mpg without trying and despite still having only around 100 miles on the clock at that stage. All in all really pleased with it.
    thanks for the info - fingerprint resistant protectors are available for iPads etc , so I’m sure it won’t be long before they are available.

    you could use a high quality fingerprint protector from an ipad and trim to size.

    Do you use the voice functions much then?

    What did you end up doing re Gap?


    I went with insure the gap in the end - thanks for tip. Cost less than half the Dealers offer.

    I certainly use voice more than I have in the past as its so effective. Even obscure sat nav destinations work with it. The touch pad is also good for entering destinations. A full qwerty keyboard opens up in the lower screen that allows far faster entry than an MMI wheel, alternatively the same screen can allow you to write the destination.

    I've sat in one, taken another for a drive and ordered a Volvo S90. I cannot like the C8 and I've tried, I really did. Still keeping the C7 mind you.

    Nothing like a voice of positivity for those that have ordered Whippy53 😉 Enjoy the S90!
