Still waiting to collect my iD3 Family Pro and reading this forum whilst waiting.
Like many, I want to switch off Lane Assist and note that you have to switch it off every time you start the car.
Reading the blurb about We Connect on VW web site and it states the following - "That means every time you set off the air conditioning, seat position, infotainment, navigation and driver assist systems will be set up just how you like them."
Question is, has anyone tried this and does it switch off Lane Assist via We Connect?

There's nothing to try as these functions (other than pre-trip aircon) don't exist.

Don't allow VW to confuse you between the apps "We Connect" and "We Connect id" :)

Why do you want to switch it off, you have no idea yet whether it will be an issue?

If you live in the countryside then you may well want to turn it off...it doesn't cope well with small country lanes.

It must be deactivated every time you start the car. This is because of the way EuroNCAP points are structured.

I live in rural Wales and drive on country roads for 70% of my journeys and it gives me very few issues at all. It should only be active from 40mph upwards anyway.

I live in the Styx on bendy mad country roads outside of Barcelona and get minimal grief.

Functionality.. 'We Connect' was useable and had all those features mentioned above for it's ICE models.
The ID series use 'We Connect ID'... and it has very little functionality currently. Apparently the Android version is being completely rewritten currently hence it hasn't had the updates the iOS version have had but other than recognising exact details of your car little else is improved (I think).

I have to contend with cycle lanes on roads not designed for them which reduce the car lane width considerably. It's generally manageable except where there are pedestrian islands in the middle of the road, reducing the width even more and forcing me to cross into the cycle lane. It was quite disconcerting to begin with being nudged towards the island but I've learned to live with it rather than faffing around to switch it off every time I set off.
