WHAT YOU NEED TO USE CAR-NET.

DISCOVER MEDIA’ OR ‘DISCOVER PRO’ NAVIGATION SYSTEM.

The ‘Discover Media’ navigation system features a 16.5 cm (6.5-inch) touchscreen. The 2D and 2.5D map view permits route selection using three criteria (fast, short, economical). The system allows your mobile phone to be easily linked to the vehicle with the help of Bluetooth® wireless technology.

The ‘Discover Pro’ system displays 3D maps on a large 20.3 cm (8-inch) touchscreen. In addition, the destinations can be conveniently selected using voice command.

Car-Net portal.

The Apps and Services from Volkswagen Car-Net are not only pioneering in terms of their features, but also the way in which they are operated. Once you have ordered the Car-Net services for your vehicle and registered your vehicle on the Car-Net portal, all you need to do is activate the service in the vehicle. You can then plan your next journey from the comfort of your sofa. View relevant vehicle information on the screen of your computer or tablet and conveniently access your settings via the online Car-Net portal.

CONNECTION TECHNOLOGIES

WLAN CLIENT.

A mobile phone tariff with sufficient data volume is required to use the WLAN client. The system connects to the Internet via your smartphone’s mobile hotspot. Depending on your mobile phone tariff and especially when being used abroad, additional costs may be incurred (e.g. roaming fees) when receiving data packages from the Internet. Use the links to download instructions on how to pair your smartphone and find out more about infotainment.

Discover Pro

OR

‘PREMIUM’ RSAP AND MOBILE PHONE INTERFACE.

The Car-Net Apps and Services can also be used with the ‘Discover Pro’ navigation system in conjunction with the ‘Premium’ mobile phone interface. The integrated telephone module makes it possible to connect to the Internet when you insert a data SIM card in the slot.

 

Instead of using an extra SIM card, you can also use the data tariff on your smartphone, as long as it is Bluetooth®-compatible and has the remote SIM Access Profile (rSAP). Check the compatibility of your mobile phone here.

Discover Pro

OR

UMTS CARSTICK.

The UMTS CarStick requires its own SIM card with sufficient data volume. The WLAN hotspot works in this way and is independent of the smartphone connection. The link will redirect you straight to the product in the Volkswagen E-shop.

Discover Pro

Google Earth™ & Google Street View™

"Google Earth™" and "Google Street View™" provide life-like satellite images and 360° panoramic views of your surroundings on your infotainment system’s display. Learn how to use the services by watching this video.

1. How are Google Earth™ and the integrated maps synchronised?

In this case, Google Earth™ only provides the satellite images. The navigation uses the system navigation database to provide map material for the road network and the current route.

2. Is it possible to access your own Google account?

No, you cannot access it.

3. Is voice control (e.g. of saved destinations) possible?

No, the service is currently only accessible via the touch screen.

4. Can I retrieve uploaded satellite images without an active data connection?

Yes, once they have been uploaded, map images are stored temporarily in a Discover Pro buffer and can also be used offline.

5. Can I use Google Earth™ while driving?

Yes, you can use the navigation system with Google Earth™ maps in the same way as navigation with conventional maps.

6. Can I save map and navigation data locally?

No, map and navigation material cannot be saved manually. However, the material is saved in a buffer, enabling frequently used routes to also be used offline.
