Because the new updated app has resulted in it no longer working for many many of us, myself and others can no longer use any features of the app, I can't view battery status, climate control, etc. So I'm paying for a car-net service that does not work anymore.RonDawg wrote:There's already a thread on this: http://www.myvwegolf.com/forum/viewtopi ... =14&t=1043
I'm curious, but why do we need to email Verizon with our complaints about being forced to use an updated app? They have nothing to do with the app itself, or the fact that features we were using for free with the old app will no longer be free with the new one. All they do is provide the communication link between your car and VW's servers. Everything else is up to VWoA.

The only parts that definitely aren't working anymore are the parts that the app says I need to pay for, and I don't feel the need to enable those features especially for the exorbitant price that VW is asking.
Perhaps it's an Android-specific issue? I'm using it on an iPhone running iOS 10 (the latest) and the previous poster is using it with a 4S, which can only use up to iOS 9.3.5. Perhaps I should try using it on my Galaxy Tab running Android 5.0 to see if it happens there.shawner123 wrote:Yeah it seems to work fine for some, not for others, I'm on Android, so basically I'm just trying to get everyone who it doesn't work for to report it so they can hopefully fix whatever the problem is.
Probably, plus Android runs on a hundred different phones by different manufacturers with different hardware so I'm sure there's a lot more to QA test (or looks like not test in this case), which as we have seen in the news lately is not at the top of the list of VW priorities!!! Yikes. I hope they fix it, although it is funny how used to something that previously never existed that we now decide we can't live without (or at least me anyway). I mean how will we be able to continue as a species if I can't preheat my electric car!!?!?forbin404 wrote:It looks to be Android specific, probably the team that worked on the Android version is less 'skillfull' then the IOS team.
And yes they are two different programming languages.
