New, practical services and useful apps: This is the world of App-Connect from Volkswagen. App-Connect includes three innovative technologies that allow you to bring smartphone apps onto your infotainment system's touchscreen: MirrorLink™, the CarPlay™ function from Apple, and the Android Auto™ function from Google.
Smartphones are handy, always with you and for every situation there is a suitable app. With MirrorLink™ you no longer have to be behind the wheel without this practical tool. Simply connect your smartphone (that needs to have the MirrorLink™ function) to the vehicle and use your MirrorLink™ apps easily on the screen of your infotainment system. Volkswagen MirrorLink™ apps include Cam Connect, Shared Audio and the "Think Blue." Trainer.
With CarPlay™ from Apple, you can manage selected apps from your iPhone while on the move. The apps can be operated with all the ease that you'll have come to expect from an iPhone. Phone, news, music - everything just at the touch of a button. And if you choose, you can even operate the system by voice control. For further information please visit the Apple website.
Android Auto™ from Google enables you to operate suitable apps safely from your smartphone using the Android operating system while driving. With Google Voice, you operate everything by voice input, and you can listen to songs using Google Play Music, Pandora or Spotify, for example. Many other apps are also already supported.
