Google Earth goes away. But will the Virtual Cockpit still display the navigation system in its most basic form?

Hopefully not off the original question, but between

Option 2: Connect Prime
Option 3: Connect Plus

It looks like option 3 is not cumulative with option 2. So it looks like to get all the "features", you need to pay $199 every six months for the service, but if you want to be on 4G which you need anyway to get the option 2 stuff to work, you would have to also pay $20/month for the 4G that comes with Option 3. Am I getting this right?

Also do you miss things when you don't continue to get these services? Sure it depends on the person but I don't want to spend $500 to maintain my old car let alone spending $400 a year plus 4G costs to use Google Earth.

Thanks.

My Audi Connect is also expiring in a month. Iíve looked at the list and canít find $400 a year worth of value in Connect PRIME.

Other than Google maps and vehicle locate on the app, I donít see anything else that really has value.

For those of you that pay the annual fee, what compelling feature made you decide to buy it?

lays out all the packages, their cost, what comes with what per model. If your dealer can't answer this, find a different dealer, they are clearly not worth doing business with. None of this stuff is confusing and a dealers job is to know these things.

why did I get ConnectPrime?

the satellite view, the ability to send nav destinations from my phone to the car and the geofencing - I do the 18 month subscription

I did not opt for the data plan, as I have no use for it. Some clients do, who spend a majority of time in their car, and need a secured network to communicate to their office/clients, etc through

I completely agree with you. The services are overpriced and just duplicate what is available on my phone
I also resent the fact that the sim cards are no longer removable. On my 2014 I could install another sim (Truphone) and get service on an economical pay as you go basis
Audi Connect contacted me for renewal last week when my trial expired - I told them just what I said above and would not be renewing.
