When the Audi E-Tron crossover arrives next year, it will be the first model from the brand to feature an electronic toll payment transponder integrated directly into the rear view mirror. This will be standard for all models and will allow drivers to access select toll roads in the U.S ans Canada, without the need to mount unsightly transponders on the dash or windscreen. The built in module can be controlled directly through Audi's Multi Media Interface system.

I wish it was an option along with Sirius satellite. Don't want either but have Sirius in both my cars. Never subscribed because all of the horror stories with billing.

It'll be nice not having to place those god awful looking velcro strips on the windshield of a brand new car for a change. While its a minor inconvenience, fumbling to pull it out of the glovebox in a hurry is always a hassle.

We know that now more than ever, people are willing to pay extra for convenience. I'm all for anything that helps to reduce clutter inside my car.

I used to work in a dealership and on road tests they were annoying, some customers wouldn't even mount them properly but instead leave it sitting on the dash.
Everytime a tech stepped in and saw it, you saw a dreadful look on their face!

Haven't found it myself but I believe this is information our dealers should have.
Thanks. I was wondering if the Dallas toll system was covered (NTTA) much less others in the area. But after going through the activation process yesterday, it appears they have agreements with every Toll authority across the US. I haven't yet driven on a Toll road in the area, so will be checking my account after I hit a few. Apparently I don't need to maintain an account through NTTA anymore as everything is billed directly through this other system.

This came installed on my Prestige model already. It is a great option, however, who wants to pay a monthly payment to another company just to be able to connect with the toll company. Not worth even using.

It was included on our first e-tron (Premium Plus) delivery. Audi replaced ours with a Prestige that had ITM on it as well. So I assume all American builds have ITM.

I agree. In my case, ITM not worth it at the moment.

Here in the NYC/NJ/Tristate area, Payviam took over this year (2020) for Bestpass. In NYC/NJ, there are "green" discounts that EZPass offers that are not available yet through Payviam (verified Oct 26, 2020). So we cancelled ours since lockdown since we aren't driving routinely. Perhaps we'll reactivate the ITM when Payviam brings the discounts into their offerings.

But if one is an occasional or even frequent driver in multiple states with toll pass programs that ITM works with, this can be a great feature. ITM could be a real asset for me. Looking forward to checking it out in a few months.
