Two different navigation systems are available for the Audi A4. The first is the Audi Navigation System. It works primarily on a speech-output basis and uses additional visual symbols on the display within the driver's main field of vision to guide him or her to the chosen destination.

Then there is the Audi Navigation System Plus. It features a five-inch, pivoting colour screen that is integrated into the centre console. As well as displaying the map and special travel guide functions, this system is equipped with a TV tuner - though of course watching television is only possible when the car is at a standstill. The system includes a CD-ROM drive and radio at the same level of quality as for the Audi "concert" sound system.

New to this model is the "symphony" radio, which is equipped with a cassette and single-CD player. This piece of equipment can also be combined with a CD changer for six CDs and with a BOSE sound system.

The driver can also obtain information about what is going on behind the vehicle: the Acoustic Parking System (APS), which simplifies reversing, is available as an optional extra for the saloon and the Avant. Ultrasonic sensors integrated inconspicuously into the rear bumper collect data from behind the vehicle. Beginning at a distance of 1.6 meters from the obstacle, an acoustic signal is heard. It turns into a steady tone at 0.2 meters.
