VW Golf 7 Premium

I ordered a new VW Golf 7 with the premium phone connectivity (the one with rSAP and WIFI hotspot).
I have a Galaxy SIII with CyanogenMod (Android 4.3). I did not quite understand the issues with VW Premium and Android you mentioned on the rSAP homepage. I have the following questions:

1. Is it possible to connect the Galaxy SIII with the VW Premium carkit to use 3G connections? I need this to obtain traffic information for the navigation system (CarNet)

2. If not why can I use only GSM mode?

3. If 1 is not possible would it work if I switch back to stock Samsung ROM?

A Samsung Galaxy S III should work fine with the latest VW Premium. When you use CyanogenMod you have to install my app, in stock ROM rSAP is already included (except early XXA... builds). Samsung phones are not affected by the GSM-only problem, so you should have full 3G, no matter what ROM you use.

The GSM-only mode is only a problem of the Nexus 4 and some older HTC phones (Sensation, One S C2, One X,...).

Hallo Admin,

I have Golf 7 Variant with VW Premium and Carnet.

I installed your app on my rooted HTC One X and tried to connect.
THe rSAP installation app v2.4.4 is also installed and has root rights.
I installed the files "Spezial für One X (One X)". Anyway the selction was not preset. (HTC One X, tmo_de, 4.2.2)

When I try to connect then I get first to the pairing screen wich I confirm. Also the screen appears says something like "the rsap premium is connecting to the Phone xxx. please wait". This screen is shown until a timeout and says that the connection could not be established. The the phone thinks it is connected to rsap and is not connected to GSM/UMTS but the VW Premium says "The Phone has an error". If i try to call someone with the phone than it does not work as no connection is awailable.

Anyway I did not found any settings for the set the VW Premieum to GSM Mode like you propose for HTC One X.

I created and attached a main log of youre app.

The HCI log looks strage for me. (Didn't attach it because the whole phonebook is inside and the file is 30 MB big.) The phonebook vcard in hci log are interrupted by binary parts I think.

I hope you can hepl me.

Thank you for your app.

The Golf 7 Premium seems to be less forgiving than the older devices... It cannot access a mandatory (but useless) file and aborts the connection. I'll try to create a plugin for that. May I mail it to you?

Sorry, the plugin will take a lot of time and currently I'm quite busy with other stuff.

Hallo Admin,

habe die SIM-Prüf-Feature ausprobiert. Siehe Screenshot.

Die Version 2.5 funktioniert leider auch noch nicht.

Hoffe du findest Zeit an der neuesten VW Premium zu arbeiten. Anbei das log von der Version 2.5.

Viele Grüße,
