Volkswagen Connect




    Connect your Volkswagen with your Smartphone
    ... nobody knows your car now better than you do.

    The more we connect, the more we experience.
    The more information we gain, the better the knowledge we have.
    Advantages through connectivity – VW Connect opens new possibilities for you and your car. Would it not be great if you find out where your car was parked yesterday via your smartphone, how efficient your driving style is, how often you have already refueled this month and when the next service appointment should be?

    You do not need much at all, to connect your Volkswagen
    with your Smartphone, even if your car is not new anymore.
    Because there is now a connectivity solution to retrofit for most of the Volkswagen models from 2008 onwards: The DataPlug is simply plugged into the diagnostic connection of your Volkswagen (OBD-2-connector).
    You can get it at your nearest Volkswagen dealership or online via

    And Volkswagen Connect brings you the following functions
    to your Smartphone:

    My Volkswagen – Overview of the most important vehicle data
    Trips – Recording of all driven journeys: Logbook function with possibility to mark your business journeys.
    Driving style– Analyze your driving behavior
    Parking space – Shows the last parking position of your vehicle
    Fuel monitor – Overview of the fuel costs
    Service partner – Dealerships in your area
    Assistance call – Direct call in emergencies
    Challenges – Fulfill predefined tasks and win awards

    Our developer team is continuously improving the app and adding further functions.

    You need Android from version 5.1.
    In general, you should always have your Operating System on the latest version.
    In order to use all VW Connect functions, you need a DataPlug.
    The use of the GPS function may reduce your battery running time.

    So far a waste of time. Didn't connect, although my mobile did via Bluetooth. Didn't recognise my existing 'My VW' account details (inc. username)... re-installed the app. now connected, however still requires new account (ie. doesn't accept 'my vw' account details). now to see how it performs

    Completely Useless. When trying to register an account it try to connect and says all mandatory fields must be filled in for registration followed by edit failed. The built in support request won't work because there is no phone number on the account. Did this even pass Q.A.?

    Dose not always connect especially when using phone to connect to play music. Also the app is constantly trying to connect while away from the car. Hence slight battery drain.

    Not great for an area with little or no GPS, and still won't let me create an account, but a great concept
