Someone needs to figure out how to get a SIM from a carrier with a cheap data plan to work in our cars so we can get the Google Earth stuff in our HUDs and VCs. I don't need it since I use Android Auto to get the satellite view of Google Maps on my center screen, but it would be nice to have it on the VC and it feels like a gaping hole of a tab on my VC to not have Earth on it.
The whole email is posted above in the thread. Unfortunately, Google Earth and the other Audi Connect services are subscription-based the car will check that subscription before they'll work, regardless where the data is coming from. Adding your own SIM won't help, at least in the US. Folks in Canada, who aren't eligible for most of the Audi Connect features, have found a way to bypass that, but the same technique doesn't work in the US. The speculation is that since Google Earth isn't a feature of Audi Connect in Canada, somehow it skips the subscription check once it's manually coded on.

My free trial also ended a long time ago. I got the email and updated the App yesterday. I am able to use lock/unlock, and Send to Car features for free. I have 2018 Q7. Are they throwing the free features to only a few users until the full rollout on March 8? Just curious.

The free lock/unlock feature was rolled out several months ago. I don't know about Send to Car; I haven't tried that since my free trial.

So I tried the lock/unlock and vehicle location and that works. The third feature, car status, does not appear to work for me yet. Its not officially launched so I suppose its still early

How did you send to car. I see the app has the ability to search for destinations, but I could't see the option to send to car. That feature is also not part of the free features

I have the new app but can’t do anything. Tried the lock/unlock and it says car can’t be reached. Also, it says “last vehicle contact- never”.
