What Does VW Car-Net Include?

January 14th, 2019 by

When you start shopping for a new Volkswagen, you will notice that almost every single model now comes standard with VW Car-Net and those that don’t have it standard on the base level do on higher trims. Even so, there are various aspects of Car-Net, and some Volkswagen models will have more features than others will. There are three main components of VW Car-Net, each of which gives you access to incredible features.

Car-Net App-Connect

VW Car-Net App-Connect is the system that makes it possible to access your smartphone applications right on the dashboard. You can connect your smartphone with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, or MirrorLink to see apps like messaging, music, and maps right on the VW’s touchscreen. You can access all types of audio applications, like your music library, podcasts, audiobooks, and Google Music. Access your contacts through the Volkswagen’s touchscreen and make calls or use voice controls. The Mapping functionality lets you access your favorite spots and get turn-by-turn directions and suggested destinations.

Car-Net Guide & Inform

Car-Net Guide & Inform takes navigation to the next level with real-time traffic. It also gives you the latest information on things like the weather and sports scores. The satellite navigation includes traffic updates from SiriusXM Traffic, which includes a 3-month subscription. It also includes weather from SiriusXM Travel Link, also with a 3-month trial. The navigation system will remember your frequent routes and lets you pick from a 3-D or 2-D bird’s-eye view. There is also plenty of infotainment with SiriusXM Satellite Radio and information like fuel prices for everywhere nearby.

Car-Net Security & Service

Car-Net Security & Services is the emergency telematics component of the system, letting you set alerts and call for help in emergencies. The system can help you remember where you parked your car, let you confirm that you really did lock the doors, contact emergency services when necessary, and get a regular vehicle health report complete with diagnostics. You can even remotely honk your horn or flash your headlights to scare away would-be thieves or help you find your VW. There is also Automatic Crash Notification, Roadside Assistance, and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance.
