Volkswagen Connect is an
intelligent, connected vehicle assistant that offers a seamless connected car
experience to Indian drivers. The interactive ‘Connect’ app enables users to
connect their car to their smart phone through a “Plug and Play” data dongle
fitted to the on-board diagnostics (OBD) port of the car. Once installed and
connected with a smartphone via Bluetooth, customers can experience advanced
connected features such as trip tracking, fuel cost monitoring, driving
behavior and much more.
The Connect app is compatible
with both Android and iOS platforms and is available to download at the Google
Play and App Store respectively.
The key highlights of the
Connect App are:
1. Trip tracking: Users can
track every trip made by the car when the phone is connected to the car
2. Fuel cost monitor: Users
can keep a tab on their monthly or trip wise fuel costs
3. Driving behavior: The
driving behavior monitor enables users to monitor their driving styles.
Individual scores are given for acceleration, braking, engine speed, engine
temperature etc. for every trip which enables users to improve their driving
efficiency by altering their driving style
4. Location sharing: This
feature enables users to share their last parking locations with their loved
ones even after moving away from that location
5. SOS call: Customers now
need not memorize or store the customer care or RSA number. The app can
directly connect a call to the helplines from the user’s phone
6. Service appointment: The
app can automatically inform the dealership when the customers car is due for
service. With this intimation, the dealer workshop can contact the customer
proactively and offer an appointment at a convenient time.
