New ID3 Owner

Post by LaZyBoNeS » Fri Oct 30, 2020 7:42 pm

I'm new to the forum and new to being an EV owner. Picked up my ID3 today and just had a light play around with it.

I can't seem to connect Apple CarPlay and cant find the Heads Up display. Any help would be gratefully received.

Thanks
Darren

Apple car play will be enabled in a future software update. The Heads Up display is not included in the UK “1st Edition” model.

That’s poor of the dealer not to let you know!

I don’t honestly think the UK dealers have been very well briefed. I’ve picked up an awful lot from being on this forum for only a week or so.

Yeah my dealer didn't know much at all. The We Connect app doesn't do half the stuff my dealer said it could. I'm very underwhelmed with the technology of the car though love the car itself. Hopefully much of this stuff will sort itself out in time. Anyone have any idea about wireless charger?

"Anyone have any idea about wireless charger?"

I've read that UK 1st Edition cars don't have the hardware as they are "Plus" models and VW only installed the hardware in the "Max" model - the new range of specs all include it as standard, which is frustrating. VW are not offering the hardware as an after-sales option for those of us in this situation.

Hi, my partner was told when she bought the car (1st edition, bought 31st October) that the wireless charging “sometimes works” but is expected to be fully enabled in the new year when the features like CarPlay are added. We’ve been able to pair our iPhones to the car via Bluetooth just fine, and in the meantime there’s a USB C port which would run a charging mat for you perhaps?

Having now had a look inside the centre console, I’d be amazed if wireless charging worked because there’s no charger hardware ;-)

I have ordered a very slim charge pad which should fit the phone slot in the car nicely and do the job, and a cable to use one of the USB-C ports.

Good evening all. New ID3 owner and loving it so far 4 days in. Any idea if the main dash display can be without the ACC window?

You mean the left-hand panel of the display behind the steering wheel?

It’s not just for ACC, it also shows the other “assist” features such as those that keep you in the lane and to keep your distance from the vehicle in front.

To hide it, press the arrows alongside VIEW on the steering wheel, it can enlarge the speed and the navigation segments instead. But that’s all.
