Your Volkswagen never stops learning: Upgrades for We Connect-ready vehicles

Whether it's a T-Roc, Tiguan, Touran or Polo, if you need a navigation system in your VW, you can simply buy and add it on.

Navigation: know where to go

Want improved navigation? Then add navigation functions for your “Ready 2 Discover” infotainment system and enhance your vehicle with intuitive navigation. Activating these functions allows you to access integrated, intuitive navigation with a map display for Europe and points of interest (POIs). Once activated in the vehicle, these functions are permanently available to you and do not require an Internet connection or a We Connect contract. As well as these handy offline functions, you can access additional useful online services with the We Connect Plus licence. The Online Traffic Information service keeps you, the primary user, informed of changes and hazards along your route almost in real time, while the Online Route Calculation service provides optimal and forward-looking route guidance. Online Map Update automatically updates your map material at regular intervals when your vehicle is online, when you select the ‘Share my position’ setting in your infotainment system.

Voice control can be activated as an upgrade later – allowing you control your VW with your natural speaking voice.

Voice Control3: “Hello Volkswagen

Your Volkswagen understands you. By saying “Hello Volkswagen”, you enter into a natural dialogue – for safe and convenient control of selected telephony, media or navigation functions. Activate voice control for your infotainment system Ready 2 Discover 4 or Discover Media and control numerous vehicle functions using your voice. After all, depending on the vehicle model and equipment, many selected functions can be controlled using your voice. This allows you to focus completely on the road and enjoy driving even more.

We Upgrade - Access your smartphone data quickly and easily

App Connect5: Access your apps in your car

With App-Connect, selected apps and content are transmitted directly to the display of the infotainment system in your Volkswagen and can be comfortably and clearly controlled within your line of vision. That makes it incredibly easy to access music, news, maps or audiobooks, for example. Volkswagen offers three interfaces for connecting smartphones, with numerous options: Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™ by Google and MirrorLink®. Wireless use of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ by Google is also available as an upgrade for the “Discover Media” navigation system and “Ready 2 Discover”. To avoid distraction, only certified apps can be started during the journey.

More Upgrades for your Golf

ACC is a system available to add onto your VW Golf that detects vehicles in front of you and automatically keeps a set distance from them.

Adaptive Cruise Control ACC6: Keeps a distance. And to speed limits.

Adaptive Cruise Control ACC keeps to a constant pre-set speed of your choice, up to 210 km/h. When your Golf approaches another vehicle in front, ACC adapts the speed automatically and is therefore able to keep your pre-set distance from the other vehicle (within the system’s limits).

You can even add the Light Assist system onto your Golf 8 as an upgrade.

Light Assist: Dazzle-free. In virtually every situation.

With the Light Assist main beam control system, you’ll see driving at night in your Golf in a whole new light. Light Assist uses a camera installed behind the windscreen to detect oncoming traffic or vehicles driving ahead and automatically switch between dipped and main beam (within the system’s limits). The future’s bright (but not too bright).

You can also install Dynamic Road Sign Display in your Golf 8 later for a fee.

Dynamic Road Sign Display: shows you what’s important.

Dynamic Road Sign Display can detect speed limits, overtaking bans and hazard signs on camera (within system limitations) and show this on the multi-function display. So it’s easier to keep track of what's going on in traffic.

Upgrades allow you to expand the selection of background lighting colours in your VW Golf 8.

Mood Lighting: For inner peace.

Give your Golf a little more personality. The expansion of the basic ambient lighting enables the interior to be lit according to mood, thanks to the individual choice of colour. Mood Lighting offers an expanded range of colours and a wider selection for creating lighting accents as an upgrade. Whether you prefer cooler or warmer lighting, you’re in the bright lights of the big city or on a dark country road: On every trip, you can create a different atmosphere to suit you and your passengers.

Dynamic Background Lighting: illuminating information.
