Why Does The Van Tell Me About My Privacy Every Time?

Everytime I start the van, I have to "ok" a screen about privacy.

In the menu I found I can have full privacy, normal privacy or share my location. How and with whom I'd be sharing it I have no idea.

What is my van on about?! Does it have some sort of military stealth mode whereby I can avoid radar detection?

Is there any way of turning this rubbish off? I really don't care and don't want to be clicking the screen every time I use the van.

What spec van do you have, and what sort of radio/entertainment system ?

Are you referring to the privacy screen you get when you have CarPlay or similar connected?

Or is this coming from the navigation system because if you use the search you are sending your location?

It's a T30 highline, so has the standard "Composition Colour" 6.5" screen.

I don't have Android Auto/Carplay connected and it doesn't have a built-in nav.

New one on me, do you have a pic of the screen?

It's a T6.1 Guess it's to do with the built in internet connectivity and "Volkswagen We" online services

It will probably pop this message up constantly until you finally give in and agree to share your location whereupon it will be quiet as a mouse while it tracks your every movement and relay it back to its masters who will analyse the data and use it to sell you chocolate, soap powder and sexual services. Its not paranoia if they are after you! *Rant Off*.
Bought the van to get away from the world.......
Anyone seen my tinfoil hat.............
Sorry OP no idea how to turn it off :(

Looking with VCDS the 5F module has a load of adaption channels with
ENG122227-ENG117675-Car_Function_Adaptations_Gen2-menu_display_XXXXX_Function_after_disclaimer
Do you think that it is one of these set "activated"?

I love the way Google tell me my "Timeline" as how else would I know that I haven't been out of the country in over a year... thank heavens for "Death in Paradise" tonight.
