Volkswagen to Launch Platform Connected to Apple Watch
Volkswagen announced that its Car-Net platform will allow VW owners to use their Apple Watches to control a variety of functions in the vehicle.
Drivers will be able to remotely lock and unlock their car, view the status of their doors, windows, and sunroof, and honk the horn or flash the lights remotely. Users can also find their parked vehicle with a map, and access walking or driving directions to the car.
In addition, a driver can remotely check his vehicle’s fuel level, while all-electric e-Golf owners can check the car’s current charge and estimated driving range, as well as turn charging on or off.
VW Car-Net is available on select trims of 2014 and later Beetle, CC, Eos, Jetta, Passat, and Tiguan models, as well as on all trims of 2015 and later Golf, Golf GTI, Golf R, Golf SportWagen, and e-Golf models.
