How it works

With App-Connect you can access your phone’s apps quickly and easily. App-Connect displays supported apps directly onto your Volkswagen’s infotainment system. Effortlessly access music, news, maps, podcasts and audiobooks. Volkswagen currently offers three interfaces for connecting with smartphones: Apple CarPlay, Android Auto by Google and MirrorLink. The wireless connection option for the Discover Media, Discover Pro and Ready 2 Discover navigation systems makes the use of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto by Google particularly simple in We Connect-ready vehicles.

The availability of the individual services may differ between countries and depends on the vehicle and equipment. You can find more information at an external link, model brochures and from your Volkswagen Retailer.
