Apple play and the Dongle thing

Post by spc369 » Sat Oct 05, 2019 1:55 pm

Couple of general questions...

Apple play,,,, when connected to your phone do you just say what track you want? Is it that easy?

The dongle thing,,,, remember members collecting their cars and some did/didn't have the dongle thing under the dash, to connect the car to the app,,,, whats that all about?

No mine did not com with OBD2 data plug, you have to ask for it, TCross is specified as being compatible with the VW Connect and WE Connect apps and it should be supplied free of charge. The apps are available for both Android and Apple devices. My experience so far is mixed, it doesn’t always register all the data so a bit hit and miss in usefulness in recording your stats.
