If you're a recent buyer or lessee of an all-new Volkswagen around Canton or Akron, it's important to make sure you're getting the most out of your vehicle. These days, staying connected is more important than ever, and Volkswagen has made that easy courtesy of their App Connect suite.

App Connect grants Volkswagen users access to a range of technology offerings that synch up all of the things that matter most to you. Everything from maps to messaging and even your personal music library is all accessible through App Connect. This is done in one of three ways.

Android Auto

Android phone users can sync their devices to their infotainment system courtesy of Android Auto. Access music from your personal library, Spotify, or Google Play. Or you can listen to your favorite podcast or an audiobook from Audible.

Leverage the Google Assistant to make phone calls while keeping your hands on the wheel. Also, the Assistant can send texts for you by using your voice.

Apple CarPlay

If you're an iOS user, Apple CarPlay is what you'll need. Your iPhone syncs to the infotainment system and allows you to access features such as Apple Music, Stitcher, and WhatsApp. You can also use Siri to help you place phone calls and access your voicemail.


MirrorLink is the third way that you can access entertainment options, and it lets you play music and share your location. Listen to your favorite music on Spotify or iHeartRadio. Or use personalized mapping technology for turn-by-turn navigation and traffic information.

App Connect is available in select Volkswagen models, so be sure you're using your vehicle to its fullest potential.
