Default Telematics/Car-Net/Audi-Connect disable

I've never been a big fan of telematics. I'm thinking of trading my vehicle for an Audi or VW.

Any info on disabling this "feature" with VAG-COM/VCDS?

I did this and found that the microphone for the hands free phone does not work with the module disconnected. Phone Works fine with just the 2 pin connector removed. (Looks lie power to the module but not certain) I want the phone mic to work.

Is this module powered through the 2 pin connector or thru the multi-pin connector.?

I would like to assure that no one can see any gps/cellular location of my car, and that it cannot be unlocked thru the car-net system. I'm not a criminal or paranoid, just that my cars location is not anyone else's business but mine.

Thx, Pete

Hey, So by accident I broke the single cable going to the Car-net Module. Everything still works except my Parking location on the Carnet App never updates my position (stuck at home) and the Carnet light went red immediately. Here's some pictures - The black box with China & VW is where the cable broke out of. Also, I have a 2014 Passat TDI SE w/ Sunroof & RNS-315. So, not sure if it's powered through the single pin connector or not, because I'm fairly certain my Bluetooth mic still works.... but I always have my phone in the center cup holder, so maybe it's my phone mic thats working ? I need to test it out... DO you know where the Bluetooth is located ? I'm want to swap the 315 out with a RNS-510 ! Thanks

For a 2015 Passat, the Car-Net module is located under the foam cover under the passenger seat.

On the Passat it's under the passenger seat.

CarNet will eventually quit working if you don't pay for the service.

Well, you lose access. But VW might not deactivate the SIM / cell modem right away...
