2016 Volkswagen Infotainment System Upgrade
High-tech features inside your car are great… when they work in the smooth and efficient way that they are supposed to! Volkswagen is rolling out this year an all-new infotainment system called MIB II. When lagging systems and complicated controls make driving more stressful than it should be, Volkswagen steps up, as their history has shown, to improve and change the world of automotive. Read here to learn more about the exciting features that make the MIB II infotainment center so exciting.
What Is New About the MIB II Infotainment System?
Better processing, more detailed graphics, and improved connectivity are promised by Volkswagen who intends to make this system easier to use than previous options. Using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Volkswagen has made their infotainment system compatible with compatible smart phones. MIB II (short for modular infotainment, second generation) is sure to impress, while making the driving experience in a new Volkswagen as comfortable and convenient as possible.
What Else Does It Do?
The MIB II also introduces more options for a Car-Net suite of telematics. There are three categories of services, “Security & Service,” “Guide & Inform,” and “App Connect.” A six-month free trial is included with any new vehicle, but after those six months the fees begin at $17.99 per month or $199.00 per year.
“Security & Service” includes features like a remote door lock/unlock, a car finder, and a “Family Guardian,” feature. This feature allows parents to set speed and distance limits for their kids driving the car, and their Volkswagen will send an alert when either limit is breached. The service can also send drivers alerts to the vehicle’s health and maintenance needs.
“Guide and Inform” adds additional features to vehicles with a navigation system. Alerting drivers to nearby fuel prices, weather information, and traffic updates, this feature package really helps when travelling out of town!
“App Connect” adds the additional smartphone connectivity through Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Compatible smartphones will be able to use MirrorLink interface and a suite of Volkswagen in-car apps.
