Does all the basics for my e-Golf but not much more

All of the basic functionality works fine with my 2018 e-Golf, but I can’t get more advanced stuff like Siri Shortcuts to work properly. The scheduling feature for charging the e-Golf works once you figure it out, but the design is really wonky. There’s no feature for just doing a quick charging schedule by telling it what time to start and what time to end to take advantage of cheaper electric rates at night. You have to first set up charging profiles and then associate the profile wit a departure time schedule, which is snot 5 steps too many for scheduling. It’d also be nice if the built in GPS could talk to the charging scheduler so that it’d know, say, that I’m home and then automatically follow a predefined schedule for home. This app also needs to add a simple notification for when charging is complete as well as the ability to export trip data. Other than these things, the app works as advertised for me, even though the functionality is limited and could be so much more.

App slow and poor customer service

First, I thought the app was a neat idea, but when you ask it to look/unlock your doors, it is incredibly slow. That’s the only feature on the app. It will also tell you your windows are open but you can’t close them on the app. I don’t appreciate the multiple notifications of my doors being open (especially annoying when at a car wash).

Rather than providing the opportunity to edit/cancel your subscription online, you have to call. The agent, though, will not be able to help you cancel. They refer you then to a second person (in what is basically a department trained to not get you to cancel). You then get asked a series of questions that guilt you into continuing the service by implying you are endangering your family and children’s safety by not having the service.

That is shady business practices and after the 8 minute call it took to cancel service, I would strongly recommend not using this service.

I was tricked into believing that this would actually be helpful but when it came to an emergency I am extremely disappointed in this service! My 17month old daughter locked herself in the car with the keys! I was unable to get the maintenance key to work to open the door so I called the customer service line and I explained my app was not working properly and that this was an emergency bc my daughter was locked inside the car and this was her response,”Oh, I don’t know anything about the app.” I couldn’t believe my ears how on earth is it that she didn’t know anything about the app when the number I called was the carnet app customer service!!!!!!! WHAT A JOKE! Unable to help me because she knew nothing the customer service was unable to open the car and I ended up calling the fire department to get my daughter out of the car! Talk about a scary moment! I am shocked that this is even a service!
