Well my 6 months is up. Than means the Audi connect subscription is ending. . I find that using Wayz on Carplay more often than the Google maps the car comes with. Anyone have any experience not paying for Audi connect?. Does Car play still work? My research shows that the features on the Audi App will still work.

Yes, CarPlay still works after Audi Connect subscription lapses. Had it on previous Audis as well as current. I do not think the MyAudi app will still communicate with the car since the car will need to use "data" to communicate with the app.

For what it is worth, my research says the myAudi app still works, but some of the "premium" features are disabled. Basic things (like lock/unlock/charge status/stolen vehicle locator) are ok, but sending destination might be gone and the things like valet and other things are gone for sure.

I see some people on older vehicles sub'ing out their Audi provided AT&T SIM for a T-Mobile to get hotspot back, however, I am not sure (a) if that is possible on the e-Tron and (b) if that would mess up the above features from working...UPDATE: NOT POSSIBLE, newer models utilize eSIM and unless you can get the IDs for it (probably impossible) you can't do anything 3rd party.

For basic features, Audi has to keep some data services connected to the car, so it is not totally dead, but the driver facing things go away (per the not too clear myAudi site)...but at $27/mo for something I never or barely use, its not worth the cost. $10-15/mo, maybe.

Here is the scoop on Care (included no matter what for free), everything else that you pay for after the trial:

Is that 36 months for Care? Prime? or Plus? Would really like to know if that's for Prime and/or Plus. If so, we're really getting screwed in the US.
That's a good question, I'm not sure. I didn't realise there were different levels. As far as I know, it's just "Audi Connect" in the UK.
