The power to entertain.
The GT Speed’s touch screen infotainment system both entertains and informs. At its heart is a 30GB hard drive, which offers up to 15GB of storage space for music as well as a continent’s-worth of mapping data. For the new GT Speed, the infotainment system features Bentley’s latest software upgrades, including refinements such as point of interest mapping, optional satellite landscape imagery, live traffic data and, where supported, digital radio.
As you drive, it provides real time monitoring of your tyre pressures, access to your phone contacts (either via Bluetooth or by inserting your SIM card) and the opportunity to zoom in or out of mapping at the touch of a finger. It is, in short, a system that’s well up to all the latest advances for in-car technology.
While the 15 Gigabytes of available music space is enough to last you on a round-the-world tour without hearing the same track twice, you can also play music via an iPod, MP3 player, the car’s own six-disc CD changer or even an SD card. Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) speakers, which combine the functions of separate tweeter and midrange speakers in one unit, direct the sound with accuracy and provide greater clarity across the audible spectrum.
Nothing compares with the sound of a Bentley engine in full cry, but the GT Speed’s infotainment system provides plenty of alternatives.
