VW Self Study Programme, Document 562 - Infotainment and Car-Net in T6 2016
With the market launch of the Caddy 2016 and Transporter T6, the "Commercial Vehicles" brand is also entering
the generation of the modular infotainment system (MIB). This means the customer will have the opportunity to
experience the benefits of comfort and infotainment all over again.
With the "Discover Media" radio navigation system, the customer is provided with the technology of "mobile online
services" or "Car-Net - Guide & Inform". These also provide access to the Internet from the vehicle. Various
services can be used via a dedicated customer portal. For example, it is possible to download destinations before
starting driving, which can then be imported easily during the journey.
It is possible to operate and display various apps provided by Volkswagen using the infotainment system of the
vehicle ("Discover Media" and "Composition Media"), as well as being able to operate and control third-party
apps that were already installed on the smartphone.
There are three interfaces to achieve this function: MirrorLink™ apps, the new CarPlay™ function from Apple and
Android Auto™ from Google.
