  • Third-Party Apps: Take your pick from the apps on your Android phone. Access the playlists you love on Spotify, your favorite stations on iHeartRadio or the audiobook you can’t put down on Audible. Other apps you can use include Stitcher™, Tunein Radio and more!
  • Google Voice™: Keep your eyes on the road by using Google Voice™ to make calls, listen to and compose texts, play your music and more with just the sound of your voice.

  • Google Maps: Android Auto™ allows drivers to access Google Maps right on their dash, which means you can see suggested destinations, addresses of your contacts and traffic information easily. You’ll get turn-by-turn directions, and you can even use Google Voice™ to find your destinations faster.


Apple CarPlay™

  • Entertainment: If there’s a specific soundtrack on your iPhone that you like to listen to on-the-go, you can access it right from your dash.

Whatever you want to listen to, it’s all at your fingertips!
  • Third-Party Apps: If you have a third-party app on your iPhone that you prefer to use, you can access it right on your dash. Whether you like to listen to music on Spotify, iHeartRadio, Stitcher™ or Tunein Radio, or audiobooks on Audible, you can hear it all in your VW.
  • Siri: When using VW Car-Net®, Siri functions just as it does on your iPhone. Use it to make voice commands and call your friends, listen and respond to texts and manage the music on your iPhone.
  • Communication: Apple CarPlay™ allows you to seamlessly connect your iPhone with your Volkswagen, which means you’ll be able to access your contacts, voicemail, phone calls and more right on your in-dash display. Use either hands-on-the-wheel controls or Siri to keep your eyes on the road while accessing its various functions.
  • Mapping: Apple CarPlay™ allows you to use whichever mapping app you prefer to put directions up right on your dash. Use Apple Maps, and you can display your contacts’ addresses, calendar entries, past destinations and addresses sent via text messages.
