For those unfamiliar with VW Car-Net®, let’s give a quick rundown. Basically, VW Car-Net® is an infotainment system that allows drivers and passengers alike to access things like music and navigation, and also services like roadside assistance and advanced fuel monitoring. Systems like these offer us a safe way to stay connected at all times and they are incredibly convenient. Well, as of last month, VW Car-Net® has received even more features that will be available on new models and updated versions of the system. Check them out below.

What’s new with VW Car-Net®? 

Curfew Alert 

This is a great new feature that is especially practical for parents with teenagers in the house. When activated, VW Car-Net® will alert you via text or email when your car is being driven past a predetermined curfew time set by you. If your kid tries to take the car out after 11:00, VW Car-Net® will let you know what’s happening to keep you aware at all times.

Valet Alert 

For some peace of mind (or chaos if it goes off), Valet Alert will send you a text or email when activated and if your car moves more than one-fifth of a mile from its designated parking space. Options can be edited beforehand on the Volkswagen’s touchscreen display. 

Parking Information 

This makes it easier to find off-street parking. Using the vehicle’s Navigate tab, you can locate nearby parking locations or you can enter a point of interest and the system will locate parking near that. This is a huge plus for people living in larger cities. 

Existing standard and available VW Car-Net® features 

The new features listed above will join another long list of great technologies already present on VW Car-Net®. These include remote controls of lights, locks, and the horn, navigation, emergency calling, vehicle location assistance, and vehicle diagnostics.
