Good to know: the service provides information that’s missing from the Gracenote database in your Volkswagen so that you can always access key information about your music while on the move.

The "Discover Pro" navigation system offers cutting-edge technology, such as a colour touchscreen, a Bluetooth connection for hands-free calls, and much more.

The 2D and 3D map views offer excellent orientation. What's more, "Discover Pro" also allows you to conveniently select your destination by voice command.
The Volkswagen Car-Net apps and services are ahead of their time – not just in terms of function, but also with regard to their operation. After registering in the Car-Net Portal, you can even decide on your next destination from the comfort of your sofa. View relevant vehicle information on your computer or tablet or use the mobile Car-Net services directly in your Volkswagen.

Often the vehicle does not recognise CDs or music titles because they are new or have not been entered into the database. In this case, “unbekannter Interpret” (Unknown artist) is then shown on the display, for example. Online Gracenote supplements the Gracenote database provided in the vehicle with updated and new information. It recognises song and album titles and supplements these with various pieces of useful information such as the artist, song title and even the album cover.
The song title, artist and the album name are displayed. In addition, a picture of the album cover is shown.
The problem might be that there is no internet connection available at the time of the request, or because no information exists in the Online Gracenote database for this song. This is often the case with artists that are new or not very well known, for example.
