kmpowell & others, thanks for sharing all this with us.

I'm learning a lot about Car-Net and, how to find out the year of your model!  Brilliant.

I had Car-Net installed by a dealer on my MY16 (oh dear) a couple of years ago now so I've not got the Security & Service functionality.

I love the news function and the weather is very accurate - and nice to see if its raining at the place you're driving to :-)

I also find sending Nav destinations from home to the car useful - saves time plugging them in when you get in the car. 
We're house hunting at the moment so its good for that when you're going to view a property.

I registered but says l need WLAN????

Wireless Local Area Network. Just setup a hotspot on your mobile and connect the car to that and you’re away.

Interestingly my dealer told me they no longer bother with Car-Net and only really push it for used car buyers which seems rather odd. I registered it anyway and appear to have three years free subscription. I’ll have a play with it over the weekend. And the Car-Net ;-)

Whereabouts is the SIM card located?
For MY19> it's an eSIM, not a SIM.

VW won't (I think they simply can't) confirm to me where it is embedded, but from my research so far it's either in the Discover headunit, or up in the cluster by the SOS button.
