New Audi Connect Service Helps Owners Find the Best Parking Space

6/11/2013
Audi has announced a new real-time parking assistance service for owners with active subscriptions to its Audi Connect technology. Effective immediately, Audi provides INRIX Park Service to Audi Connect subscribers, giving owners of its vehicles the ability to compare off-street parking rates, measure the proximity of available parking from their destination, and get turn-by-turn directions to more than 18,000 parking locations in the United States. Globally, INRIX Park Service includes information for more than 60,000 locations in the United States and Europe.

"Together with Audi we're making it easier to get new integrated navigation services in your vehicle than it is to update your smartphone," said Bryan Mistele, president and CEO of INRIX. "With drivers looking for parking accounting for up to a third of all traffic in our cities, INRIX Park demonstrates how new data driven services can help drivers save time and frustration on the road."

Using INRIX Park Service, an Audi driver can find available parking spaces near their destination, compare flat and hourly parking rates between off-street parking lots, measure the distance from the lot to the destination, and determine the best entrance to the lot based on traffic conditions and the driver's approach route. Audi already partners with INRIX to supply Audi Connect customers with dynamic fuel price service.
