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

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
