The technology available in vehicles these days is quite amazing. We're talking well beyond the power-adjustable seating or push-button start. With the evolution of the smartphone, Volkswagen is making it easier than ever to connect with your vehicle. Stokes Volkswagen in North Charleston wants to help those drivers navigate their way through the process, so you can enjoy everything the Car-Net system provides.

Your Volkswagen vehicle can sync up to your Apple device through Apple CarPlay or Android device through Android Auto. Or connect your phone through the MirrorLink program. The VW Car-Net system brings you a large touchscreen interface so you can easily find and select the features you want. It could be the music you need to make short work of your Charleston commute, directions to your favorite restaurant in Summerville, or something as simple as accessing your text messages and voicemails. All it takes it syncing up your phone to your Volkswagen's VW Car-Net system. For some, that could be easier said than done.

So, you've just bought your new VW Golf or CrossSport. How do you go about setting up your phone, so it connects to your new vehicle? Let's get started:

Download the App

Go to your app store and download the Android Auto or Apple CarPlay app. You'll want to make sure you have a strong Wi-Fi signal and connection.

Connect through Car-Net

You can also connect to your device by selecting the App-Connect icon on the menu. Find your preferred connection and select the device you have. Your device should be listed in the device list. When your device and the vehicle are in sync, your data will be transferred to your Volkswagen. Select OK when it appears on the display. Then follow the directions on your phone, and you will be on your way to instant access to your apps and hands-free calling.

Connecting to the Car-Net system is a great way to enhance your driving experience through Mount Pleasant, SC. It is so much more than just music and navigation. It lets you find gas prices near you, up-to-date traffic reports, and the Volkswagen Car-Net Security & Service features.
