Next-Gen VW Car-Net Enhances Connectivity and Smartphone Integration

It is safe to say that Volkswagen models and the innovative features that have made the German-engineered automobiles so popular are among the best in the industry. From the fuel-efficient TDI Clean Diesel power platform to the comprehensive Volkswagen Car-Net interface, the Volkswagen model lineup delivers everything you could want from your next car. Expect that level of excellence to be upgraded and available with the release of upcoming 2016 Volkswagen models.

With the implementation of the next-generation Volkswagen Car-Net interface, you will now have in-car access to Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, MirrorLink and even more integrated features. Next-gen VW Car-Net enhances connectivity and smartphone integration, taking it to new levels and dividing it into three key categories — Security & Service, Guide & Inform and App-Connect. Accessible through the vivid touchscreens and intuitive controls of the Modular Infotainment Platform, Volkswagen Car-Net will completely upgrade your Volkswagen driving experience.

Volkswagen Car-Net Security & Service

The Security & Service segment of the Volkswagen Car-Net interface will provide drivers with a new level of connected safety and control over various elements of their new 2016 Volkswagen Jetta GLI. You will be able to access this element through a Customer Web Portal or a new smartphone app. Highlight features of this innovation include Automatic Crash Notification, Manual Emergency Call, Roadside Assistance and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance. You will have the ability to monitor and control other elements of your vehicle including door locks, windows and remote vehicle access as well. A Family Guardian feature is an additional asset for parents who want to monitor a young driver’s driving habits.

Volkswagen Car-Net Guide & Inform

Almost all of us, whether we want to admit it or not, have been lost at one point or another. With the Volkswagen Car-Net Guide & Inform services provided, that is a thing of the past. Implementing a next-generation navigation system, you can get updated directions while driving on the central touchscreen. This is further enhanced with in-car access to real-time information such as sports scores, fuel prices, movie times, weather updates and traffic information. You can upgrade these services even further with the availability of SiriusXM Travel Link and SiriusXM Traffic.

Volkswagen Car-Net App-Connect

Potentially the most innovative element of the next-generation infotainment interface, App-Connect delivers unprecedented in-car smartphone integration. The next-gen VW Car-Net system enhances connectivity and smartphone integration by providing you with access to all three of the dominant smartphone integration systems available — Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and MirrorLink. With these services now accessible through the Volkswagen Car-Net interface, you can utilize your favorite phone-specific and third-party apps within the scope of your Volkswagen. Available apps include Spotify, Pandora, Audible, MLB.com at Bat, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, Skype, WeatherPro, Parkopedia and countless more.
