Sending car information to a workshop1

It is possible to send information for the car at any time, e.g. if you book a workshop appointment and want to help your workshop by providing them with better data so that your visit can be planned. Sending car information is not the same as booking a service appointment.
Open the Car status app from the app view in the centre display.
Press the Appointments button.
Press the Send car data button.

A message that vehicle data are being sent is shown at the top of the centre display. You can cancel data transmission by tapping the X in the activity indicator.

The information is sent via the car's Internet connection2.

This car information can be accessed by any retailer if they have the car's identification number (VIN3).
