Volkswagen offers the most comprehensive connected car system in the industry – Car-Net
As the first connectivity in-vehicle suite, Car-Net was the first to offer smartphone connectivity with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and MirrorLink. It also offers integrated protection against theft, instant connectivity with our Emergency Assistance, Automatic Crash Notification, Anti-Theft Alert, and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance.
For 2020, Car-Net will get some serious upgrades. These upgrades are designed to expand your in-vehicle connectivity options, as well as to put more control into the palm of your hands.
Our Remote Access app will enable you to monitor your Volkswagen by using all of the features in the Car-Net suite. You can get a better picture on the last place you parked, as well as report your stolen Volkswagen from your smartphone. You can check on your vehicle’s health, in addition to your – and designated additional driver(s) – driving behavior. The latter is also a part of Car-Net’s new DriveView program. Enrollment in this program may give you a discount on your insurance premium, depending on your driving record and subsequent habits.
Plus, there is a new “i-Call” button that puts you in touch with Car-Net’s Information Assistance features. By a press of a button, you can contact Volkswagen regarding your Car-Net account or to get information on a point of interest coming up on your travels. The latter is also connected with Car-Net Guide & Inform, assisting you in getting to your destination through our navigation system easily.
On top of all of this, your 2020 Volkswagen can be equipped with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot connection. This can help you get a better connection with your device on the road – as long as you are not using your device in your hand while driving. If you are a Verizon Wireless customer, you can add the hotspot to your plan. Non-Verizon customers will pay a separate $20/month access fee.
Now, new 2020 Volkswagen owners can get five years of Car-Net services at no charge. This include Remote Access and most of the features mentioned here.
