Re: Car-Net app not working?

Thanks trocsel for the warning about IOS 13. Updating IOS always knocks the app out. I have just updated my We Connect app and all is working fine. Its a pity they didn't combine the VW Connect app at the same time and keep all the information together.

Re: T-roc 1.5 evo bio E10 petrol

If my memory serves me right, ICI had petrol stations in the 70's and they sold a fuel that was 6% wood alchohol. It was cheaper than normal petrol due to the tax benefit. I would imagine that is Biofuel is marketed today it will be a premium fuel. All to do with being green?

Re: VW CONNECT AP MISSING & FALSE DATA

Everyone to their own but personally I find that the features are useful. Its free for three years and whats to say VW aren't using the car data from the car anyway through the gps. Enjoy your cars.

Re: VW CONNECT AP MISSING & FALSE DATA

Hi JAMCT. I updated the IOS on my iphone this week and as usual it stopped CarNet from working. No matter what I tried it wouldn't connect and despite deleting/renewing the app, changing password etc, I eventually got locked out. The email sent from VW had a freephone number on which I rang today an...

Re: USB / SD card options

Regarding voice control. This addition is performed by the dealer via the software and the "key" will cost £200 to enact. My daughter has just purchased a new Tiguan SEL and this feature was not in the specification which is surprising. Enquiries at the dealer confirmed it is an optional extra and t...

Re: VW CONNECT AP MISSING & FALSE DATA

JAMCT, my experience has been that any data sent by the car to the host, VW, will be retained and when the app is re-installed, it can be read on your mobile. I had a "corruption" a few weeks back after filling up with fuel. When completing the data input on my mobile the location if my car was in R...

Mostly motorway and A roads. I filled the fuel tank and did some local trips before departing, did some travel in Dors...

Re: Free 200MB data SIM from Three

Hi Impala. I sometimes forget to take my mobile with me and the CarNet icon comes up as normal and the journey is recorded by the sim in the car. I rarely connect my mobile via the lead to access the WLAN in the car, only using a charging lead when required. So I believe the CarNet system tracks you...

Re: Free 200MB data SIM from Three

Hi twist. CarNet doesn't use any of your own data. It's embedded in the car and doesn't require a mobile phone to be connected for it to work.
