Hi,

I found a "Wi-Fi" menu within the multimedia system, it seems that the only option available is for the multimedia system to act as a hotspot but the canadian Taos doesn't have car-net. What would be the use for a hotspot if the hotspot doesn't provide an Internet connection? It seems that vw canada just opted out of car-net but still provided this "hotspot" option that seems of no use.

I wonder if the "Wi-Fi client" option can be enabled instead of the hotspot (using obdeleven or carista). Maybe connecting the system to a cell phone as a wi-fi client will provide OTA updates?

Any thoughts?

It’s for the Wireless Car-Play system. It uses wifi instead of Bluetooth becuase it’s a higher data throughput. Doesn’t provide any internet connection.
