What Can VW Car-Net Do?
Connect Your Phone And Car
With VW Car-Net App-Connect, you’ll be able to use all your favorite apps from your phone directly on your car’s touchscreen. The Car-Net App-Connect system works with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink, so you’ll be able to use it no matter what brand of smartphone you own. With any of the three platforms, you’ll be able to play music from your phone, see your messages, and more.
Car-Net Guide & Inform is the built-in navigation system. Choose a new VW with this Car-Net feature, and you’ll get instant access to satellite navigation, weather reports, and traffic updates. It can also show the nearest gas station prices and give you weather reports and sports scores, through a 4 year SiriusXM® Traffic subscription and SiriusXM® Travel Link with 3 month trial.
Security From Afar
Car-Net Security & Service provides a whole new range of safety and monitoring features you can access from your phone.
