I like it, and use it for 3 primary reasons:

1. Monitoring my MPG for the long journeys I do.
2. Setting area security alerts when the car is left anywhere for a long period of time (overnight for example).
3. Checking the car is still locked and not been tampered with when I have left it in a public place and I am away from it.

mine doesn't offer any of that.  Does your car have a permanent connection to the web?

If you have the Apple watch you can also talk to your GTI and it will drive to meet you out the front places if you need to get away quickly...

Yup, MY19's come with an integrated Sim-card that gives the "Car-Net ‘Security & Service" pack via CAR-NET. This comes as standard on the GTD/GTI and R:



It's controlled by the user via the car-net app, or through the car-net web portal. :)

It's model year that counts not build year. Check the calculator below to see if your car is a MY18 or MY19. My car was built late 2018 and registered in 2019, but it's a MY19...



If your car is a MY19 then it should have the option. :)
