German carmaker Volkswagen India has introduced its state-of-the-art connected car solution – My Volkswagen Connect. The interactive sim-based app is said to effectively transform a regular driving experience into a connected one, bringing in convenience and safety for the customers.
The interactive connectivity solution comes as a standard fitment in the recently introduced Polo GT TSI and Vento Highline Plus.
The My Volkswagen Connect app sports a simple and easy user interface, that can be easily accessed by plugging the dongle to the on-board diagnostics (OBD) port of the car. The app can be downloaded on any smartphone and paired to any Android/ iOS device post a secure OTP exchange on the registered mobile number. The smartphone app can analyse 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, customers can also use the app to scan, upload and store critical vehicular documents or related official documents for a paperless and convenient experience. Customers can also use the app to set renewal reminders for vehicle insurance and receive ‘over the air’ (OTA) software update.
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. Customers will have access to real-time vehicle analysis and assistance that would make them aware of their vehicle condition, driving patterns and enhance the overall fun-to-drive experience that a Volkswagen stands for.”
The My Volkswagen Connect app is available with 3-years of free subscription and warranty.
