Enter the myVW app, with subscription services from Car-Net. Stay connected to your Volkswagen and its many features like never before, all from the convenience of your mobile device. Join the team here at Fifth Avenue Volkswagen as we walk through just some of the many features this service offers.

Remote Control

The myVW app gives you incredible control over your vehicle, acting in many ways as a keyfob whenever you need. You can use it to lock and unlock your vehicle’s doors, and even remote start the engine on compatible Volkswagen models. Volkswagen EVs don’t need remote start, but include control over other features, including climate control, letting you set your vehicle’s temperature so it’s comfortable before you get behind the driver’s seat.

Keep Tabs on Your VW

The app can track the location of your Volkswagen, reminding you where you last parked. Not just that, it can monitor your vehicle when someone else is behind the wheel. Has your teen borrowed the car? Keep tabs on where and how they’re driving your car, and alert you if they go above a certain speed, or outside a pre-set distance.

Vehicle Health

The myVW app can monitor the health of your Volkswagen. Not only can you easily access diagnostics for your vehicle, the app will let you know when it’s time for service, and alert you of any critical issues as they arise. You can even book needed service right on the app, without ever having to make a call.
