Morning All

A quick question.

I have a sim in the car at the moment but really can't see what it adds?

If I discontinue it what would I actually loose??

you Will loose access to traffic info on satnav plus weather and the ability to create a hotspot which guest could access via wifi

That's it basically.

You could get traffic info by sharing your data from your smartphone. Ut it isn't stable plus has to searched each time you start the car. Kinda of ennoying really

I believe you also loose the remote apps, since the car is offline. What about the emergency services? Why would anyone want this in such a premium car? Security? Costs? 🙄

Maybe I've misunderstood your post but I think the emergency services work with the pre-installed SIM which cannot be removed.

The one that the OP is asking about is the user inserted one, which goes under the armrest.

In addition to what has been said above, I recently found that it also gives access to the news services (CNN) and the car can actually read headlines / full articles out to you in a robotic voice.

Probably there is a pre-installed SIM for emergency services, I'm not sure. There is an EU law in place that new cars need an emergency service system, though. So you're probably right.

Has anyone else noticed that it forgets your home network? I've added our local access point to the car (so it can connect when home) however I keep having to add it. Anyone else ?

How to give 3G/4G from my smartphone to Velar navi etc?

For my country cars come without sim slot despite R Dynamic SE must have normally.
To give 3/4g from phone to velar you need to :
1/ share your data via Bluetooth on your phone (usually with a password)
2/ then choose your phone network in the WiFi menu on the velar.

It does work well however you will have to do this each time you take your car. Hence the sim is better
