Video: See Google Earth running on Audi's MMI system |

Audi revealed at the end of last year that the MultiMediaInterface system (MMI) in the new A8 limousine will be using Google Earth as its navigation software, in order to reveal to people a more accurate display of cities, roads and other useful information.

Now, a new video has appeared, showing Google Earth in action, just how it will work on the A8, when it will be launched this spring. The system allows you to check out the map in your region, hover over cities and check out Wikipedia entries about their history or what points of interest are present.

Inserting an address is also quite interesting, as you can use either the large dial, or the touch-sensitive portion besides it, to etch out letters, and the system will register them. Hit the jump to see Google Earth running on the Audi MMI system.
