The introduction of the second generation modular infotainment matrix (MIB) satisfies the growing demands of
customers.
Compared with that of the predecessor, the performance of the modular infotainment matrix is much higher in
order to offer a more comprehensive infotainment package.
The latest generation of Discover Pro, with new navigation functions among its features, is presented in the new
Passat. This means, for example, that Discover Pro can display maps from Google Earth and
Google Street View.

prioritised:
The mobile telephone that is paired first or the mobile telephone first recognised after the terminal 15 ON cycle is
marked as prioritised. It is shown in the list of maximum two active mobile telephones in the menu of the radio
navigation system.
associated:
If a mobile telephone is already paired or has already been detected in the active driving cycle, the next mobile
telephone is marked as associated. It is shown in the menu list of the radio navigation system as the second in
succession.
For incoming and outgoing calls, both mobile telephones (prioritised and associated) can be used in the same way.
The mobile telephone initiated first is selected.

The Comfort mobile telephone interface


The Comfort mobile telephone interface enables the best possible transmission and reception through connection
to the vehicle's external aerial. Pairing takes place inductively and offers the means of connecting a mobile
telephone without physical connector to the vehicle's aerial system.
The Comfort mobile telephone interface can be combined as an option with Composition Media, Discover Media
and Discover Pro. It features an additional, data-enabled USB connection. The Comfort mobile telephone
interface consists of the following main components:

Two-way signal amplifier for mobile telephone/data services J984


In addition to inductive pairing with the coupling aerial, the aerial of the mobile telephone is connected to the
external aerial R205 of the vehicle by means of the two-way signal amplifier for mobile telephone/data services
J984. This amplifier is connected in the signal wire between the storage compartment with interface for mobile
telephone and the roof aerial and installed in the right luggage compartment trim.

With the telephone module and the SIM card slot it is possible to provide the functionality of a fixed installation
phone when the SIM card is inserted. An inserted SIM card has priority over the wireless Bluetooth pairing.
New features of generation 2.0:
If a pure data connection is selected for the inserted SIM card, the Bluetooth profiles are still available for the
mobile telephone pairing process.
The Premium mobile telephone interface cannot only be used as a client with paired mobile telephones that
have a data connection, but it can also make this access (WLAN hotspot) available to other clients.
The telephone module in control unit J794 with a connection to the vehicle's external aerial is designed to work in
GSM and UMTS networks.

The WLAN
WLAN access is possible via two options:
Generating a WLAN hotspot
Client WLAN mode connected

The prerequisite for this is a mobile end device that


itself creates a mobile hotspot. In the operating and
display unit of the MIB the WLAN mode is set to
Client and a search is then started. The next step
entails selecting the desired WLAN device from the
list whereupon a connection is made (a password
may need to be entered).

Only one mobile telephone that supports the


Bluetooth data transfer protocol rSAP can be paired
to the operating and display unit of the MIB (with
Premium mobile telephone interface). All mobile
radio connections of the mobile telephone are
deactivated in the process. It serves as a SIM card
reader and SIM data supplier.
The mobile radio connection is made using the control
unit 1 for information electronics J794.
The radio's telephone module itself uses the SIM card
data in the mobile radio network. Only the Bluetooth
connection remains active in order to detect whether
the telephone is still within range.

A data-enabled SIM card
To connect to the internet, the SIM card has to be

The car stick


The car stick is a USB stick with an integrated modem
that can only be used in the vehicle. The car stick is
also referred to as a UMTS stick. After inserting a
SIM card, the stick can be fitted in a vacant USB
socket in the vehicle. Only after entering the
SIM card PIN is a connection to the internet made.
Data transfer between the car stick and the operating
and display unit of the MIB is via the USB interface.

The Infotainment system can also come with the sound package DYNAUDIO Confidence in connection with the
devices Composition Media, Discover Media and Discover Pro. With this sound package, the digital sound
package control unit J525 provides 700 watts of power to supply 8 loudspeakers, a dual coil bass loudspeaker
(subwoofer) and a centre loudspeaker. By using a centre loudspeaker and the loudspeakers for the mid-tone
frequency range, which are new additions, a perfectly balanced sound is created for the interior of the Passat. The
centre loudspeaker is integrated into the middle of the upper part of the dash panel. The digital sound package
control unit J525 is a 16-channel amplifier, of which 13 of the channels are actively used.

The MirrorLink function
With this function, customers have the option of mirroring the screen of their smartphone on the display of the
infotainment system. Using the MirrorLink connection, the smartphone can also be controlled via the touchscreen
of the infotainment system. The connection is made using the USB data cable of the smartphone.
In the Passat, the MirrorLink standard V.1.1 is used. This makes it possible to display certified apps even when the
vehicle is in motion.

A list of compatible smartphones can be found on the Volkswagen homepage under the heading Technology, in
the chapter Infotainment. MirrorLink is only supported by android smartphones.

Prerequisite
The prerequisite to use the function is a MirrorLink-enabled smartphone with an active internet connection and
MirrorLink activated in the vehicle. If the function is not enabled as the user chose not to select the option when
the vehicle was ordered, it can be retro-fitted with software as a product (SwaP). To use MirrorLink, at least
Composition Media must be installed.
After creating a connection between the smartphone and infotainment system using the USB data cable,
certification of the hardware is performed first. This involves checking the infotainment system to determine whether
the telephone supports MirrorLink. If this is the case, the MirrorLink connection is made and the smartphone
display is mirrored on the screen of the infotainment system. If the user launches an app, a check is carried out via
the internet connection as to whether this app is MirrorLink-enabled. The relevant certificate is downloaded if the
result is positive. The smartphone and radio navigation system now compare the certificate information. If the
certificate is confirmed, the app can be shown on the screen of the radio navigationolksystem
while the vehicle is in

Shared Audio

The app creates a complete playlist from all of the music files available on the
network (WLAN in the Passat). The prerequisite for this is that all devices are
connected to the WLAN and the app is installed on all of the devices.

Call & Remind

In this app, task and call lists can be created. These can be managed as and
when the traffic situation permits.

Sound Journey

The app creates a soundtrack of the journey. Three genres can be selected
from. The music is influenced depending on the acceleration, braking and
steering behaviour. The soundtrack can also be recorded.
