App-Connect.
Access your apps in your car.

Put the future behind the wheel.

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 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.

How to get the apps in your car.

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 and Discover Pro navigation systems makes the use of Apple CarPlay™ particularly convenient for selected vehicles. To avoid distraction, only certified apps can be started during the journey.¹

With CarPlay™ by Apple, you can control selected apps from your iPhone while driving. Using these apps is as easy as it is from an iPhone. Phone, news, music – all at the touch of a button. You can even operate the system via voice command if you so desire. The wireless connection option for the Discover Media and Discover Pro navigation systems makes the use of Apple CarPlay™ particularly convenient for We Connect-ready vehicles. You can obtain further information directly from Apple.
