2014 Volkswagen EOS Komfort Convertible Gets Car-Net Service

Volkswagen is introducing their new Car-Net service on select 2014 models, including the EOS Komfort convertible. This service offers safety, remote access, family tracking, and diagnostics at a very reasonable subscription price after a six month free trial. While an Android app is still in production, the iPhone app is already available for download at iTunes. Once a buyer has purchased the EOS Komfort convertible, the Volkswagen dealer provides login information. With the Car-Net app, Volkswagen owners can instantly access lots of information about the status of their cars: whether the hard-shell top has been lowered, if the doors are unlocked, or whether they need to signal for help by honking the horn and flashing the lights. Monitoring and geofencing features alert users when their vehicle is being driven over the speed limit or leaves a predetermined area of town.

Car-Net also includes a useful navigation feature that enables owners to search for a destination on their phones and send the route to the car's navigation system. The car can automatically dial 911 services in case of an accident and can call roadside assistance on demand. Probably the best feature of the car-net app is the subscription price. Comparable services often cost more. GM's OnStar costs $28.90 per month with navigation, while Mercedes' mbrace service costs $43 per month, including the personal assistance. Lexus' Enform with Safety connect costs around $23 per month, once the yearly subscription price is broken down. Next to these services, $17.99 per month for Volkswagen's Car-Net looks like a great deal.
