Volkswagen Discover in-car infotainment review

Choosing to get live traffic updates on your Volkswagen is a must, as the system will always take you on the fastest route

Volkswagen’s infotainment system combines a touchscreen with eight buttons taking you directly to different sections of the system. The screen colouring is mainly dark and very deep, which makes it easy to read even if the sun is shining.

Yet connectivity was patchy, with our Motorola and Nokia phones connecting well via Bluetooth and USB, but our iPhone 6 and Blackberry showing errors. All screens took less than a second to load, and the system was extremely fast to boot up.

In this system, even if the sat-nav routing seems mad, it’ll be the fastest way to your destination. But it lost points for complex on-screen commands. However, models from 2016 will come with Apple CarPlay on Nav Pro as standard or for just £100.
