Created an account via the cubic link from the vw app link. Then goto auto.cubictelecom.com scroll down paste goto new site part and login and there are 4 data plans with onthem being free.
Means i can use use car as a hotspot too.
That was my thought but have 270 days or 3GB stacked up in account, ie seem to be able to top up several times. Just added another after posting.Their data plans are quite expensive after the initial free trial expires. I believe you can achieve the same result of getting rid of the error message by setting up your phone as a hotspot & connecting via the car's wifi. I just ignore the "1" now & pretend the number of errors is no longer zero-based...
Are you on 2.1 software or an older version for this data pack to work? TIAThat was my thought but have 270 days or 3GB stacked up in account, ie seem to be able to top up several times. Just added another after posting.
It's this bit of the original post that you have to follow to find the free plan!:
Aha! Thanks, that will teach me to not read properly.Then goto auto.cubictelecom.com scroll down past 'go to new site' part and login and there are 4 data plans with one of them being free.
I have the free plan, but cannot see anywhere to add more than one, and I can't see any reference to 'go to new site'. How did you manage to add more than one free plan? I think that option's been removed now.Thanks, just signed up and have a few plans pending. If they close the free option it should mean I have a few booked in advance. Wouldn't want to pay just to clear that message so hope they auto renew
Exactly that - no physical SIM, so if you want use the car's 4G for anything other than updates & traffic/nav, then you've got to sign up to their tame telecom supplier.Is this data plan to use the 4g sim card that is built into the car?
If so, what does this actually do? What does it allow you to access? Can I for instance stream music via my Amazon account?
This is one part of the car that I can never seem to find any information or reviews.
Create a wifi hotspot from the car, internet radio thru car, plus any future apps they decide to add.So if I just use the inbuilt 4g for updates and say nav I don't need a dataplan?
What then would a data plan allow me to access?
