2012 Audi A8L: The Zero Volume Pause

October 31, 2011

So I had my iPod hooked to our new 2012 Audi A8L the other night, and my wife turned the volume down to hear something my daughter said from the cavernous backseat.

The conversation lasted a few minutes, and when I turned the volume back up I was surprised to learn that the music had been paused by the very act of turning the volume to zero.

I love it. This is especially useful for podcasts, audiobooks and other spoken-word recordings where you don't want to miss a single word of what's being said.

Maybe there are other examples of this, but I have not previously noticed this in any other long-term test car. Whether this turns out to be unique or not, this is iPod intergration at a detail level.
