How it works

Would you like to use your smartphone apps securely and conveniently in your vehicle? Thanks to App-Connect, that is easier than ever. It allows you to conveniently use selected apps and content right in your Volkswagen. They are transmitted to the display of the infotainment system via a wired connection and can be comfortably and clearly controlled within your line of vision. That makes it incredibly easy to access music, news, maps or audiobooks, for example. Volkswagen currently offers three interfaces for connecting with smartphones, with numerous options: 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 convenient for We Connect-ready vehicles. To avoid distraction, only certified apps can be started during the journey. 1
