An intelligent SIM-based app: My Volkswagen Connect

Volkswagen India on October 27 introduced its state-of-the-art connected car solution – My Volkswagen Connect.

The interactive SIM-based app is an impressive technology that effectively transforms a regular driving experience into a connected one, bringing in convenience and safety for the customers, said a press release.

The interactive connectivity solution is a standard fitment in the recently introduced Polo GT TSI and Vento Highline Plus. 

My Volkswagen Connect sports a simple and easy user interface that can be swiftly accessed by plugging the dongle to the on-board diagnostics (OBD) port of the car. It can easily be downloaded on any smartphone and paired to any Android/ iOS device post a secure OTP exchange on the registered mobile number.

The app analyses an individual’s driving style which includes speed, braking behaviour, coolant temperature, acceleration and RPM. The app also enables customers to locate point of interest and also to reach out to customer care or roadside assistance, in case of emergencies. Additionally, they can also use the app to scan, upload and store critical vehicular documents or related official documents for a paperless and convenient experience.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Steffen Knapp, Director, Volkswagen Passenger Cars India said, “At Volkswagen India, we have relentlessly been working towards enhancing and providing our customers the best of technology and connected solutions. Today, we introduced the upgraded ‘My Volkswagen Connect’ app that offers customer convenience and safety at their fingertips.”
