GROM Audio begins shipping this week a new car kit to add Android/iPhone control to many Audi vehicles.
The GROM-MST3P-AUDO adapter lets drivers can use their phone to run navigation apps, music and Internet radio plus Bluetooth hands free calling from their phone using the car’s steering wheel button controls and radio keypad controls.

The kit also charges the user’s phone and is compatible with most Android phones including Samsung Galaxy, HTC, Google Nexus and other models.
Bluetooth and iPod control requires an optional kit.
