New cockpit environment. A digital and interactive cockpit environment has been created in the interplay of the Active Info Display and the infotainment system. Volkswagen is introducing the latest generation of infotainment systems in the T-Roc, which have display sizes ranging from 6.5 to 8.0 inches. Specifically, these are the Composition Colour (6.5-inch radio-infotainment), Composition Media (8.0-inch radio-infotainment with CD player) and Discover Media (8.0-inch radio-navigation infotainment with CD player). The 8.0-inch systems are glass-encased units. Depending on the selected system, it may be possible to extend system functionality with digital radio reception (DAB+), speech recognition and an 8-channel sound system by US manufacturer ‘beats' with 300 watts of system power. With the optional ‘Comfort' mobile phone interface, compatible smartphones can be charged inductively and be coupled to the external aerial. All this requires is placing the smartphone in a storage box (with mobile phone interface) in front of the gear lever.
Composition Colour. The Composition Colour infotainment system boasts a touch-sensitive 6.5-inch colour display (16.5 cm screen diagonal), good resolution (800 x 480 pixels) and a design that immediately appeals to users of smartphones and tablets. Its surface is clear and elegant. In addition to two rotary/push-button switches, there are six flat menu buttons. Its 2 x 20 watts of audio power is output over four loudspeakers. If eight loudspeakers are installed in the car, the power is increased to 4 x 20 watts. Along with the FM radio, the infotainment system also offers an integrated SD card interface over which music can be played back in MP3 or WMA format. Like the next larger Composition Media system, the Composition Colour is also equipped with a diversity antenna; there are several antennas, and signal noise can be filtered out by linking them. A USB interface is offered as an option (Apple compatible).
Composition Media. The Composition Media features a glass surface design with an 8-inch colour display. This glass surface creates a tablet-like look. In addition to two rotary/push-button controls, the system has eight function buttons. The sound of the infotainment system
(4 x 20 watts) is output over eight loudspeakers. Along with the SD card and AUX-IN interfaces, it also offers a USB port (compatible with Apple), a Bluetooth connection and a CD drive.
Discover Media. Discover Media is the radio navigation system for the
T-Roc. It is based on the Composition Media system and includes additional navigation functionality. Updates to the navigation software are provided free-of-charge for the first five years. In addition, this includes a licence for Car-Net ‘Guide & Inform' services which is also free-of-charge (for one or three years depending on country).
Volkswagen Car-Net. The T-Roc brings connectivity to the driver and other vehicle occupants more innovatively and easily than ever before. They are 'always on', which is to say they are online whenever they wish. The Volkswagen Car-Net applications ‘App Connect', ‘Guide & Inform' (wide variety of online information) and ‘Security & Service' (online services) are provided for this purpose.
App Connect. The latest generation of the modular infotainment matrix creates the right conditions for connecting the T-Roc with today's Apple and Android smartphones via App Connect. Along with MirrorLinkÒ (Android), App Connect now also integrates Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ (Google) into the infotainment systems.
Car-Net ‘Guide & Inform'. 'Guide & Inform' lets customers use a wide range of online services. These include Online POI Search, Online Destination Import, Route Import, Filling stations (location and price), News, Parking Spaces (location, availability and price), Weather, Charging Stations (for electric and plug-in hybrid models) and Online Traffic Information.
Car-Net ‘Security & Service'. The services package 'Security & Service' enables drivers to access assistance in a wide range of situations. Highlights include services such as "Emergency Service", "Automatic accident reporting", "Roadside service" and "Service scheduling" (scheduling service with the service garage). Over and above this, ‘Security & Service' offers functions such as checking whether the car is locked or whether the lights have been switched off (query via Car-Net on a smartphone or via the Car-Net portal on a PC). Anyone who has someone in the family who is learning to drive will appreciate "Area alert" (automatically notifies you if the T-Roc enters or leaves a predefined area) and "Speed alert" (activated as soon as a certain driving speed is exceeded). Another useful feature is the "Online anti-theft alarm"; if an attempt is made to break into the car, the T-Roc sends you a warning message by push notification to the Volkswagen Car-Net app (including via smartwatch) and/or notification by email.
Wireless Charging & Keyless Access. In the new T-Roc with the ‘Comfort' phone interface, it is also possible to supply power to smartphones inductively (for compatible phones). This phone interface can also be used to inductively connect smartphones to the car's external aerial.
