In-car connectivity is here and the manufacturers
are racing to develop its functionality.
Volkswagen is at the forefront of this race
with Car-Net, its concept for a connected life
including time spent in your car. Your car will
now have much improved ‘guide and inform’
capabilities, the ability to project your apps on to
your navigation screen, and the ability for your
car to talk to us in the event of an accident or
service event. We investigated further.
To extend Volkswagen’s level of assistance yet further, help will be available when you need it most. From the new Tiguan onwards, all new models will have the option of an integrated SIM card, which will communicate with Volkswagen when you have an accident, and also when a service item comes due. This will allow for the roadside services, and your local retailer, to offer an even safer and more secure driving experience.
Volkswagen App-Connect allows you to bring smartphone apps onto your infotainment system’s touchscreen, and extend the interactivity further.
