Hi, I have the 2017 Golf GTE, and am having problems charging. When I set the on dash menu, it seems randomly whether the car charges and conditions ready for the time. I used to override it with the app (VW connect), but now it seems VW is charging to use the app which seems ridiculous these days. I only need the app to initiate charging, nothing clever. So I then resort to pressing the charge button next to the charge lead, but even this isn't always foolproof and sometimes doesnt charge, so I end of locking and unlocking the car multiple times. Can anyone give me any advice? thanks

Not quite sure I understand, but I had an intermittent issue with scheduled charging on my 2018 GTE, and it turned out to be a break in one of the wires in the charging cable (I think it was the CP connection). Have you tested using a different cable, maybe the granny lead?
And yes, I just extended my subscription to the app services post standard warranty expiration.
