Can't seem to get it to connect at all. Keeps saying the password isn't right when I enter it.

Exactly the same issue I have and gave up with it. Tried sitting in the car for hours, calling VW and going to a dealer, all ended with the same error message (I work in IT and would class myself as a patient techy....). Seeing as it's only for maps and traffic I stick with Android auto.

I'm only wanting to briefly connect to stop the stupid Car net welcome splash screen 😂

Check the password on your hotspot... its case sensitive.

Try setting the password to numbers you can't get wrong like "1234"

Tried all entries possible Fred and still won't connect. I'll try changing the password and see what happens.

There is a known bug on some Android and phone brand combinations. Oneplus suffers the same issue. I seem to recall that it's VW's problem for not keeping up with a change in Android. For security reasons, Android now changes an address for connection each time, but the VW software keeps using the same address as per older versions. Perhaps the phones that work have a compatibility mode or something.

I've just tried my s10 and it connects OK.

Carnet doesn't work, but suspect my three years is up.

Might not be much help, but for what it's worth I have an S7 on Oreo and it works fine for me. Or at least it did last time I used it. So I don't think the issue is phone compatibility, unless VW changed something on later cars.

An S7 with Oreo is really quite old though. I said VW didn't keep up with a change in Android
