The Volkswagen Car-Net® mobile app will now offer Siri functionality for users with Apple devices running iOS 12. If you use VW Car-Net® on your iPhone, you can now interact with Siri and ask her to perform functions like lock or unlock your vehicle, check your estimated mileage, and remotely stop or start your Volkswagen.
“We are constantly looking at innovative ways to make VW Car-Net® more convenient and relevant for our customers,” said Abdallah Shanti, EVP, Global Chief Information Officer Volkswagen Brand & Car-IT. “With Siri Shortcuts, creating voice commands to use with our mobile app was a great opportunity to do just that! Integration with Siri helps our drivers keep eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.”
Volkswagen Car-Net® offers abilities divided into three categories: App-Connect, Security & Service, and Guide & Inform. App-Connect allows smartphone integration through a Volkswagen vehicle’s Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ and MirrorLink® functionality. Car-Net Security & Service includes Automatic Crash Notification, Manual Emergency Call, Roadside Assistance, and Stolen Vehicle Location Assistance. Car-Net Guide & Inform includes navigation functions as well as integrated weather, sports, and fuel data as provided by SiriusXM® Travel Link and SiriusXM® Traffic.
