PSA: CAR NET shutdown MY19 and earlier

Mon Oct 25, 2021 10:57 am

I just got an email from VW about Car Net going away for MY19 and earlier due AT&T shutting down their 3G network.
I’m guessing early adopters with MY15 are SOL if they want to change charging modes etc, since it was only available on the app, not headunit.
Current: '19 e-Golf SEL-P|'15 Passat TSI SEL-P
Past: '15 e-Golf SEL-P|'13 Tiguan SE|'15 Golf|'14 Jetta|'12 CC|'06 Passat|'06 Jetta

Yes. Our 2018's carnet subscription ran out this past weekend, and when I called them, I was told I could not renew. I didn't realize how much I relied on checking the charge status until it went away!

AT&T may be forced to delay their disablement of 3G, given how many cars and other devices (not just e-Golfs) are in this same situation. But even if that comes true, not clear that CarNet will allow for renewals.
