The 12.3-inch VW Digital Cockpit features a high def display utilizing a thin film transistor display to let you view larger versions of navigation maps, safety feature controls and other vehicle information. Just press the start button on the new Atlas equipped with the digital cockpit and you’ll receive a warm welcome by name before activating your preferred settings from memory.

Configure Speedometer and Tach for More Info

It just takes the press of a button to configure the new VW Digital Cockpit so both the speedometer and tachometer show an inner dial, where you can get navigation information, range until empty, fuel economy and more driver assistance information. The VW Digital Cockpit comes with the ability to integrate with smartphones so all your contact information and recent calls will show up in your eyesight. Simply scroll down and you can make a call without being distracted from the task at hand.

Off-road View Great for Taking Trails

The new VW Atlas, when equipped with the VW Digital Cockpit, can even show the angle of your front wheels. This comes in handy when trying to traverse some of Arizona’s toughest trails. The Digital Cockpit will also show your compass direction and a built-in altimeter tells you how high up in the clouds you and your Atlas are going. The Digital Cockpit utilizes an ultra-sharp display to make information easy to see at night or when you’re traveling through a cloud of dust, as in an off-road club tour.

Pedestrian Monitoring Helps Avoid Collisions

Choose the VW Atlas equipped with Pedestrian Monitoring and an alert will show up in your VW Digital Cockpit if someone is stepping into the road ahead of you. An alert displays brightly in your line of sight, letting you keep your eyes on the road while still tending to the emergency at hand. If you get in a mood where  you prefer more of a classic look to your gauge setup, simply select “Classic View” and your Digital Cockpit reverts to a full size speedometer and tachometer. Be among the first to see the new VW Atlas and Digital Cockpit when the fullsize SUV comes to Chapman Volkswagen later this year.
