Volkswagen Up GTI — long-term review
The mount on top of the dash adjusts to fit most phones and has a USB port around back. You either need a really short USB cable or will have to wrap a long one around the bottom of the mount to avoid the cable dangling down over the climate controls.
You can either Bluetooth your phone to the car or download the free Up app. It gives nav – via a downloadable map – plus control of vehicle functions like the radio, and access to trip information.
While we like being able to see more trip info than is accessible via any other screen, we’re not sold. If you use Spotify the app won’t pull in your songs, Google Maps still offers superior navigation, and scrolling through contacts is easier with the main head-unit’s physical knob.
