    T6.1 Headunit restarting & Carplay failing

    Hi all, I’ve a 21 plate T6. My media unit has over the past 12 months or so progressively got worse, it switches itself off and on again at random times, and will absolutely not connect to CarPlay, it’ll sit there for 2 minutes trying and then say it can’t connect, unless after an hour or so it...

    Useful Phone apps?

    Hey Everyone, So now that I got my new Van I wanted to see what some of you use in terms of apps on your phone. I saw a thread about someone that tracks their refills and journeys each time but for the life of me cant remember the app. I also saw some parking ones but my search skills clearly...

    NR Coding / Vag Retrofitter

    Just a quick note about unlocking app connect. I recently bought a 2017 T6 204 DSG (Best van I’ve ever had) It came with Nav but didn’t have app connect, after a Vw dealer said It would cost £360 to unlock I searched for another way. This guy is amazing, £80 and did remotely, sent files to put...

    Trouble with app connect on new 6.1 (and first impressions)

    I started another thread but it seems to have been side tracked with iPhone users. Anyway I'm starting another thread to see how many other people are having the same problems I'm having. I have a new T6.1 with the standard composition media unit and use an Android phone. I connect the phone...

    What is this on my MFD?

    Having fitted my Alpine X802D-U HU after it coming back from Alpine I now have this small issue. The Image below only shows when I am listening to Apple CarPlay, everything else such as Radio stations show correctly on the MFD. Anyone shed any light?

    Carplay on Composition Media

    Hi, I was sure I saw a bunch of posts a while back where people were successful upgrading the composition media to work with Carplay, but now I can't find them and I'm supposed to be working. Did I imagine that this was possible? I'm going to look at getting a Crafter later today, and I think...

    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...

    Do you have a T6.1 with faulty App-Connect?

    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...

    Plug & Play Apple Play head unit

    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. Cheers Crispy

    Looks like AppConnect has finally been cracked!!

    Hi My dealer is quoting £168.07 + VAT to install the activation code for APP connect on the Discover Media unit of my T6. Is there any other way of doing this? Or am I tied in to the dealer? cheers Jim

    CarPlay on the T6.1: do I need it?

    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?

    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...

    Hi all 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? thx
