To use the Car-Net services, you need a Volkswagen ID user account and need to log in with your username and password. A separate contract must also be concluded online with Volkswagen AG. To be able to use the services for the full term, you have 90 days after delivery of the vehicle to register it under portal.volkswagen-we.com. If the customer registers at a later date, the duration of the free period will be reduced accordingly. The ‘Guide & Inform’ mobile online services of Car-Net can only be used with the optional equipment Discover Media and Discover Pro. In addition, you need a mobile, Internet-ready end device (e.g. a smartphone) that is capable of acting as a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. Alternatively, a mobile phone with remote SIM Access Profile (rSAP) or a SIM card with a phone and data option can be used with the ‘Business’ mobile phone interface option in combination with the Discover Pro navigation system. The optional CarStick LTE can also be used in conjunction with the Discover Media navigation system to produce an Internet connection for your navigation device and a Wi-Fi hotspot in the vehicle. The Car-Net services are only available with an existing mobile data contract or one to be agreed separately between you and your mobile data provider and only within the coverage of the mobile data network concerned. Additional fees (for example, roaming charges) may arise when receiving data from the Internet, depending on your particular mobile phone rate and especially when using the service abroad. Given the volume of data which arises when using Car-Net services, agreeing a data flat rate with your mobile data provider is strongly recommended. A smartphone with a suitable iOS or Android operating system and SIM card with data option with a existing mobile data contract or one to be agreed separately between you and your mobile data provider is required to use the free We Connect app. The availability of the Car-Net services may differ depending on where you live. The services are available for the agreed contract period and may be subject to substantive changes during the contract period. You can find more details on Car-Net at portal.volkswagen-we.com and your Volkswagen dealership; for information on mobile data charges, please consult your mobile data provider.
