We are excited to announce the addition of the VolksWagen App-Connect Android Auto activation service to our offerings.
What is VolksWagen App-Connect Android Auto?
In the age of rapid technological advancement, we are presented with increasingly sophisticated solutions. Previously, phone-to-car connectivity was limited to basic functions such as calls and music playback. While these functions are undeniably useful, they represent only a fraction of the possibilities offered by modern technology. VolksWagen App-Connect Android Auto represents the evolution of this idea—a solution developed by the manufacturer of popular phones specifically for drivers. With this technology, users can seamlessly integrate select Android applications directly into their car’s multimedia system.
Who can benefit from VolksWagen App-Connect Android Auto?
Virtually anyone with a phone running Android 6.0 or newer can take advantage of this service. That’s right—even users with older phones, up to 10 years old, can utilize this solution. To put it simply: if you have an Android phone, this solution is for you!
The specific car model is less relevant, as the multimedia systems supporting this function have been available in various Volkswagen models since 2016. However, not all users may have activated this feature when purchasing their vehicle or may not have chosen the appropriate equipment. Our activation service targets owners of “Discover Media” and “Discover Pro” navigation systems, for whom App-Connect support exists but requires activation.
What are the benefits of Android Auto?
One of the standout features is the ability to launch alternative maps directly on the car’s multimedia screen, providing a viable alternative to VW navigation. This eliminates the need for additional phone holders to view maps on a separate screen, as everything is conveniently displayed on the built-in factory navigation.
Google Maps: Renowned for its quick map updates and real-time traffic predictions.
Waze: In addition to turn-by-turn navigation, it incorporates user-submitted travel times and route details while downloading location-dependent information over a cellular network.
Automapa: A trusted Polish navigation solution known for its extensive coverage and frequent updates.
Tomtom Go: A globally recognized navigation brand offering offline maps, traffic updates, and lane guidance.
Yanosik: More than just navigation, Yanosik provides real-time road information, including accidents, speed cameras, and police checks.
Beyond navigation, VolksWagen App-Connect Android Auto enables the use of music applications directly on the car’s screen. This means users can access their entire music library from popular streaming services such as Youtube Music, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Spotify, Tidal, and Audible.
Traditional Features: Basic communication functionalities remain available, with enhancements including access to the phone book and the ability to handle messages from SMS applications and messaging platforms like WhatsApp, Telegram, or Zoom directly from the car’s screen.
