AV-DC are dealers for Kufatec’s range of factory-fit electronics upgrades for Volkswagen, Audi, BMW and more. Kufatec’s hardware is designed to work seamlessly with factory infotainment systems, adding an amazing range of features where genuine hardware is often not available or quite costly.
A recent example is this 2004 Audi A8 4E – one of Audi’s finest. It’s 2G High MMI infotainment system was fully-featured from the factory, but AV-DC has performed a number of Kufatec upgrades to bring it up to date with current technology.
Kufatec’s FISCUBE TV Tuner and media box were fitted in place of the factory analogue TV tuner. The TV button on the dash now selects high quality DVB free to air television, with channel selection via the factory menu system. The FISCUBE is also capable of DVR television recording and USB audio and video playback without additional remotes or controls.
The GSM in-car telephone was also replaced with Kufatec’s bluetooth handsfree module which is compatible with calls, text messages and music streaming. The factory TEL button accesses bluetooth options, which can also be selected through the display in the cluster with the steering wheel controls. Even better, Audi’s factory fitted voice recognition system can dial numbers, find contacts and more.
These options are all installed with factory-fit wiring harnesses and no permanent modification to the car. Programming with licensed workshop software ensures the entire system works as factory.
