So I’ve brought myself a newer van. T30 edition which had low mileage and quite a few extras but no APP connect or Voice control. Found VAG_coding_leicester on Facebook and insta and got hold of him. What a legend, he told me to get an SD card and managed to set it up remotely as I’m literally...
Just trying to get an idea of how many people have the same problem as me with their new van.
Theres already a few threads running but basically when I connect my android phone to the usb socket on the van and use app connect the following happens. Google maps runs and has sound but if you then...
Hi All, currently on the lookout for a Caravelle 2017-> and am confused which head units will work with Carplay / Android equv. and which wont. It seems obvious the ones with the APP button will do it but you dont see that a lot.
Looking on here, it seems as though the units can be unlocked to...
After a lot of reading and thread searching I'm still none the wiser. Am I right in thinking it's near on impossible to get a Factory VW head unit and just do a simple swap? I currently have the stock DAB unit.
Hi there! Recently said hello and asked about North East VAG Adaptions in the new members area. Decided to go ahead and give it a whirl and it's working just great. Sent the guy a dm on Facebook. Took a couple of pics of the head unit and he said he could do it. He uses Anydesk.com to send a...
Anyone heard of activating remotely the app connect function on the head unit.
I’m being told by someone who does it that this is possible.
Before I decide I wanted to ask to see if anyone has had this done.
Still speccing our first foray into Transporter world and in need of a little reassurance.
I think I can do without the inbuilt satnav and just plug the iPhone in - the 6.1 brochure shows a very Apple-y looking display. Anyone got any experience of this?
I have begun a petition after discovering my local VW dealership in the UK charge £250+ for the activation of AppConnect.
AppConnect is nothing novel and should be factory default in all VW vehicles.
Anyway you can read my letter to VW in the content of the petition: Sign the...
So I'm loving having Google Maps on the main screen in the van, but has anyone else had the following issue:
One the van is connected to the phone, I'm then unable to play any audio from the phone - Google Music, Spotify etc., say they're playing, but there's no actual audio. I can still play...
I have the 150ps Highline with standard media system and a friend of mine has the same van and says you can pay VW £250 to update the radio so you can use voice command and see google maps on the screen?
Has anyone done this and is it worth it?
Hi, Can anyone help with an App Connect issue Im having on a 65 plate Kombi with Discovery Media Unit. I have read through couple of threads on here ref. App Connect but can't find an an answer. I Bought a van a couple of months ago and missed having apple CarPlay, so went to VW and paid an...
Hi guys, just picked up my new T6 highline with the stereo fitted with app connect. I thought this would be a great feature having my phone in my car but I now realise it has to be plugged into the USB which is on the other side of the van??? I've had the stereo out today to see if had a simple...
Hi, I am fitting a reversing (OEM) camera, and I am told to plug one cable into number 6 and the other into 12, but which ones are they on the blocks?
Does anybody have a map or diagram of the block and what res where please?
While using Waze through AppConnect last night I encountered frequent connection problems with the head unit just going blank, and then trying to reconnect to my phone (iPhone 8). This was preceded by the headunit (standard VW without nav) totally freezing accompanied by a contstant high pitched...
So just had a call from robinsons in Norwich
Saying as everyone had said my van needs the socket replacing and a module and an update .
But as I should have been informed of this they are paying for it all parts and labour
Hi just had my van back from my local VW centre after having appconnect activated and yep it doesn't work.
They've tried to reinstall it but still no good. Appconnect is activated it just wont show any devices , they have tried it on engineers phones as well iPhone and android and nothing.
So having paid to get my AppConnect enabled, I now discover my van has the wrong kind of USB socket (really VW? I mean really?).
Looks like these are about £35 on eBay here ( VW PASSAT B8 2017 AUX USB Connection Port B8 5G0035222E 5Q0035726E | eBay), but I found them for the equivalent of...
