Sim-based My Volkswagen Connect app
The sim-based app transforms a regular driving experience into a connected one. My Volkswagen It’s simple interface can be accessed by plugging the dongle to the on-board diagnostics (OBD) port. It has to be downloaded on a smartphone, and paired to any Android/ iOS device post a secure OTP exchange on the registered mobile number.
My Volkswagen Connect app analyses an individual’s driving style. This monitors speed, braking behaviour, coolant temperature, acceleration and RPM. Customers can locate point of interest, and reach out to customer care or Road Side Assistance (RSA) in an emergency.
My Volkswagen Connect app lets you scan, upload and store important vehicle documents or related official documents. This convenience means one can access any needed documents at any time.

The feature is now available with 3 years of free subscription, and 3 years of warranty. As a convenience, the app is useful to set renewal reminders for vehicle insurance and receive ‘over the air’ (OTA) software update.
