How to turn off myVW Car-Net?

822 Views 12 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  ChrisC
Anyone know the procedure to turn off car net through the dashboard?

Also is it ok to pull fuse 19 to stop the cars cell service?
Any drawbacks? Is it going to constantly bug me on the LCD screen because of it?

Also is the ODBII constantly recording GPS location? Is there a way to disable it?

Do you have a privacy concern about it? If so, remember you have a small brick-shaped device with you at all times that does the same and report out regularly. 馃槈

Yes all this data tracking is BS.
I'm not in California so there are no protections

As someone linked already, you signed an agreement with Volkswagen when you purchased or leased the vehicle, that includes collecting data. Unless there is a trigger in the agreement you're unable to stop the logging.

If this bothers you, well, you can always sell the car and buy a pre-OBDII car.

We recognize you're excitedly new to your ID.4 and this forum but I've just spent some time realigning/augmenting your threads to their proper locations and pointing you to existing content, as have other members. How about you take a breath and look around prior to your next posting. Thank you.
Why would you want to turn off data? Unless you're a thief or trying to avoid a repo, there is no go reason to.

"If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about" has always been a bad reason to give up one's privacy. We should be able to opt out of the data collection and marketing profiling without giving up features.

Now look up how skip tracers find cars to repossess. There鈥檚 no privacy.

We were able to opt out (basically never agreed to it from purchase) because we鈥檙e in California.
