Hi all

I finally took delivery of my ID3 last week, and I've got a question about the user settings:

My wife and I are different users, but other than the colour scheme the choice of user seems to do very little... I was hoping/expecting it might adjust the mirrors as we have very different settings, but that doesn't seem to be the case?

I've read that it doesn't associate phones with users, i.e. if she's driving it users her phone, if I'm driving it uses my phone...

I expected the different user settings to be more like they are on a computer, but it seems it's quite limited at this stage? Is there a list of which settings are specific to the user, and which aren't? We don't have electric seats, which I understand do change with the user.

Any other tips for a brand new ID3, and new EV owner?

Thanks!

I think the profiles option is in a bit of a mess, I was also under the impression that it would work like it does on a computer, however according to VW you can only have a Guest user with limited functionality aside from the main user. I ended up resetting the infotainment system and me and my wife now use the main user. Maybe in the in the not-so-distant future VW will allow for an additional proper user. There's still hope!

Interesting, I've got a 3.0 car already but don't have half of the extra features shown in the app. Guessing they're waiting for critical mass of users before releasing them.

The update to the app comes later in the summer, which summer is anyone's guess.

Our other VW has User profiles, they are pretty useless, I am not expecting the ID.3 to ever have any meaningful options.

Zappi Charger with Solar Edge 6kW PV array.
Android Connect ID App Ver: 2.2.15
