Volkswagen introduces an updated infotainment system for 2021 models

New Volkswagen Infotainment Features for 2021 Vehicles

The powers that be at the Volkswagen world headquarters are making some exciting advances in the area of available device connectivity in its class of 2021 cars and crossover SUVs and beyond. Buyers will get their first look at the new Volkswagen infotainment features for 2021 vehicles when the 2021 VW Atlas goes on sale at dealerships like Compass VW. The ability to connect popular smartphone platforms to a driver’s daily commute is not new and has long since moved past the novelty phase of availability. A Volkswagen vehicle equipped with the MIB3 infotainment system finds additional wireless functionality, better voice recognition software and the most modern USB ports available. Let’s take a look at a few things future buyers might want to know before they schedule a test drive.

Among the most exciting features that have been added to the new MIB3 infotainment system is the ability to pair multiple compatible phones at the same time. Furthermore, VW has found an innovative way for drivers and passengers to switch which device is connected. It is pretty easy to surmise that there is some room in the new digital infotainment system’s architecture to work with technology that isn’t available when the vehicle goes on sale. That’s why a USB-C port has been made standard equipment on Volkswagen vehicles with MIB3.  

Owners of MIB3-equipped vehicles will also find a redesigned navigation system on certain models that will also feature simplified and enhanced map designs, predictive route options as well as what the automaker refers to as advanced route management. 

The final major upgrade made to the available technology in several 2021 VW vehicles will be the enhancement of the Travel Assist system. Drivers of VW models with this technology will be able to take a bit of break while driving at speed on the highway. Travel Assist is activated with the touch of a button on the steering wheel and it will use input from other driver-assistance systems to keep the vehicle safely driving on the road. 

Customers can see this technology in action when they make an appointment with a Compass VW product expert today.
