Car-Net: the innovative range of Volkswagen services that connect your Volkswagen to the digital world. From maps to music, hands-free calls to dictating texts to even monitoring back seat trouble makers the innovative system is essential in the connected car.
Car-Net App-Connect* allows you to access and change your music, podcasts and audiobooks without touching your mobile, so you can concentrate on the road. It can also read your received messages out to you, whilst Car-Net’s Security & Service** emergency SOS call feature offers additional peace of mind, sending out a call for help even if you can’t.
Car-Net uses real-time data to give you more useful and convenient services. The Guide & Inform service looks at traffic reports to calculate the best route for you. It can also look at real-time petrol prices to direct you to the cheapest and most convenient petrol station.
Our Volkswagen electric cars and GTE hybrids come with an e-Remote function on the Car-Net app that can show you the battery charge level in miles and gives you the option to start the charging of your vehicle from your phone.
Cam-Connect allows you to watch your backseat troublemakers through a GoPro® camera connected via App-Connect to the Car-Net service, allowing you a safer and smarter way to keep an eye on your passengers whilst staying focused on the road.
The electric and hybrid cars have the additional smart comfort feature in the Car-Net app, of being able to warm up or cool down your car before you leave the house. This e-Remote function allows you to start defrosting your car from the comfort of your bed in the morning or turn on the air conditioning from the sofa before you go out into the heat. Simple time saving and hassle-free features for all year round.
