Parking and manoeuvring

235

Trailer Assist

Automatic brake operation

The trailer manoeuvre assistant helps the driver
by automatically operating the brakes in cer-
tain situations.
The driver is responsible for braking on
time 

››› 

.

The brakes may be applied automatically and
the function deactivated in the following situa-
tions:

A certain speed is exceeded.

The steering wheel is grabbed. The vehicle

brakes automatically until it stops.

If the button   is pressed during the manoeu-

vre or the driver’s door opens.

WARNING

The quickly turning steering wheel can cause
serious injuries.

Do not hold the steering wheel during the

manoeuvre until the system requests it.

Exception: If a dangerous situation occurs,

intervene and take over the steering.

WARNING

Never allow the automatic operation of
brakes to lead you to take any risk that com-
promises safety. The system is not a replace-
ment for driver awareness.

 The manoeuvre assist system is subject

to certain limitations inherent to the system.
In certain situations, the automatic braking
intervention may only work in a limited way
or not work at all.

Always be ready to use the brakes your-

self!

Automatic brake operation ends after 1.5

seconds approx. if the vehicle is stopped. Af-
ter this, brake the vehicle yourself.

Note

The exterior mirrors cannot be adjusted while
the assistant is active. The saved setting
for the passenger’s mirror can be activated

Troubleshooting

Camera with no visibility, fault message, the
system disconnects

 Clean the camera or remove possible adhe-

sives or accessories from it 

››› 

page 371

.

Check for visible damage.

The system behaves differently than expec-
ted

There can be several causes:

The camera is dirty 

››› 

page 371

. In addi-

tion to dirt and snow, camera visibility can be
reduced by detergent residue or any type of
coating.

The system requirements must be met 

››› 

page 233

.

The camera is covered with water.

The vehicle has some type of damage in the

camera area, e.g. due to a parking impact.

The field of view of the camera is blocked by

an accessory, e.g. a bicycle carrier system.

Changes have been made to the paint in the

camera area and structural modifications have
been made, e.g. to the front part of the vehicle
and the running gear.

Solution for all cases

 Temporarily disconnect the system.

Check if one of the causes indicated above

has occurred.

Once the source of the problem has been

eliminated, the system may be reconnected.

If the system still behaves unpredictably,

have it checked by a specialised workshop.

It is only displayed if the vehicle is equipped with a parking system.

Rear cross traffic alert
(RCTA)

How it works

Fig. 174 

Diagram of the parking assistant:

detected area around the vehicle that is driving
off.

Park Assist uses the radar sensors on the rear
bumper 

››› 

page 183

 to monitor traffic cross-

ing behind the vehicle as it reverses out of a
parking bay, or as it is being manoeuvred, for
example in very low visibility conditions.
When the system detects a relevant vehicle on
the road that is approaching the rear of the ve-
hicle 

››› 

Fig. 174

, an acoustic alarm may sound

if the relevance so requires it.
In addition to the acoustic alarm, the driver is
also informed by means of a visual signal on
infotainment system display. This signal is dis-

played in the form of a red strip at the back
of the image of the vehicle on the infotainment
system screen. This strip displays the side of the
vehicle towards which traffic is approaching in
transverse direction

.

Automatic braking to reduce damages

››› 

page 212

.

Connecting and disconnecting

The rear cross traffic alert can be switched on
and off by accessing the 

Assistants

 menu on

the dash panel display using the steering wheel
controls. If the vehicle is equipped with a multi-
function camera, it can also be accessed by
means of the assistants systems key located on
the main beam headlight lever.
When the vehicle is restarted, the last adjust-
ment in the system will remain active.

Trailer mode

The rear cross traffic alert will be automatically
deactivated and it will be impossible to activate
them if the tow hitch is electrically connected
to a trailer or other similar object. As soon as
the driver starts driving, a message appears on
the instrument cluster screen indicating that the
assistant is deactivated.

Once the trailer is uncoupled from the vehicle,
the assistant will return to its initial state prior
to the moment when the trailer was electrically
connected.
If the tow hitch is not factory fitted, then the rear
cross traffic alert will have to be deactivated
manually when driving with a trailer.

WARNING

The smart technology incorporated into the
rear cross traffic alert cannot overcome the
limits imposed by the laws of physics; it only
works within the limits of the system. The
parking assistant function should not tempt
you into taking any risks. The system is not a
replacement for driver awareness.

The system should never be used in limi-

ted visibility conditions or complicated traf-
fic, e.g., in high-traffic areas or when crossing
multiple lanes.

Be sure to always be aware of the vehicle's

surroundings, since the system often fails
to detect things such as bicycles or pedes-
trians.

The rear cross traffic alert itself will not

brake the vehicle to a complete stop.

Introduction

Use the storage compartments only for small or
light items.

WARNING

Objects inside the vehicle that are not se-
cured could be thrown across the cabin in
the event of sudden braking or manoeuvring.
This may cause severe injuries as well as loss
of control of the vehicle.

Do not carry animals or sharp, hard or

heavy items in open storage compartments
of the vehicle, on the dashboard or on the
cover behind the rear seats, or inside pieces
of clothing or bags inside the vehicle.

Keep the storage compartments closed at

all times while the vehicle is in motion.

Do not hang garments weighing more than

2.5 kg (approx. 5.5 lb) on the vehicle’s coat
hooks. Never leave heavy, hard or sharp ob-
jects in the pockets of these pieces of cloth-
ing.

WARNING

If you leave lighters inside the vehicle, they
might be damaged or lit inadvertently. This
could lead to severe burns and damage to
the vehicle.

Before moving a seat, make sure there are

no lighters in the moving part area of the ve-
hicle.

Before closing a storage compartment,

make sure there are no lighters in the closing
area.

Never leave a lighter inside a storage com-

partment or any other surface of the vehicle
as it could ignite due to the high tempera-
tures on such surfaces, particularly during
the summer.

NOTICE

Do not store heat- or cold-sensitive ob-

jects, food or medicines in the cabin. Heat
and cold could damage them or render them
useless.

Objects made from transparent materials

left inside the vehicle, such as glasses, mag-
nifying glasses or transparent suction pads
stuck to the windows can concentrate sun-
light and damage the vehicle.

WARNING

Hanging clothes may decrease the driver's
visibility, which may cause serious accidents
and injuries.

 Always hang clothes from hangers in such

a way that the driver's visibility is not affec-
ted.

Only hang light pieces of clothing from the

hangers of the vehicle. Never leave heavy,
hard or sharp objects in the pockets of these
pieces of clothing.

Do not use clothes hangers to hang up the

clothing, as this could interfere with the func-
tion of the head-protection airbags.

NOTICE

Do not place overly large objects in the
pockets on the front seat backrests (e.g. bot-
tles) or objects with sharp edges. Risk of
damage to the pockets and the upholstery.

Power sockets

Introduction

Electrical equipment can be plugged in to the
vehicle's sockets.
The devices must be in a perfect state of repair.
Do not use defective devices.
The 12 volt power socket will only work with the
ignition on.

WARNING

Improper use of the sockets or electrical de-
vices could lead to a fire and cause serious
injuries.

Please ensure that children are never left

unsupervised inside the vehicle. The sockets
and the devices connected to them can be
used when the ignition is switched on.

If electrical devices overheat, switch them

off immediately and disconnect them from
the mains.

NOTICE

To avoid damaging the electrical system,

never connect electrical devices that sup-
ply power, such as solar panels or battery
chargers, to 12-volt sockets to charge the 12-
volt battery.

Only use electrical devices that comply

with the applicable electromagnetic com-
patibility directives.

To prevent voltage fluctuations from caus-

ing damage, unplug any connected electri-
cal devices before switching the ignition on
and off.

Never connect electrical devices that con-

sume more than the specified power to a 12
volt socket. Exceeding the maximum power
consumption could damage the vehicle's
electrical system.

Observe the instruction manuals of electri-

cal devices!

Note

The use of electrical appliances with the

engine switched off will cause the 12-volt
battery to discharge.

Uninsulated devices can interfere with the

radio, infotainment system and the vehicle’s
electronic system.

Practical equipment

Make sure that the maximum power of the
sockets is not exceeded. The power consump-
tion of the devices is shown on the type plate of
the devices.
The continuous output of all of the vehicle’s 12-
volt sockets is 120 watts in total.
When connecting two or more electrical devi-
ces at the same time, make sure that their total
consumption never exceeds 190 watts.

USB power sockets

Depending on the equipment and the country,
the vehicle may also have USB connections 

ex-

clusively for charging or as a power socket

.

These USB ports are located at the rear of the
console, between the front seats . These con-
nectors can work at a maximum power of up to
10.5 W per port.

NOTICE

If the 12-volt socket is used at full power for
longer than the specified time, the fuse may
blow.

Never use the 12 volt socket at full power

for more than 10 minutes.

In the case of full power, use a single 12-

volt socket.

plugged in. If there is enough power available,
the socket can still be used while the engine is
off 

››› 

.

Maximum power consumption is 150 watts (300
watts - maximum 2 minutes).

Connect an electrical device:

 Open the cover

and insert the plug into the power socket as far
as possible to unlock the built-in child lock. The
socket only supplies power once the child lock
is unlocked.

 (arrow)

Steady green light:

 The childproof lock is unlocked. The socket is

ready to operate.

Flashing green light:

 The ignition is switched off, but there is

enough power available to continue supplying
the socket with current for a maximum of 10
minutes. If the connector is unplugged before
this time elapses, the socket is disconnected
and cannot be used again until the ignition is
switched on again.

Flashing red light:

 There is an anomaly, e.g. disconnection due

to a current surge or overheating.

Disconnection due to overheating

When the temperature exceeds a certain value,
the 230 volt socket inverter is automatically dis-
connected. The disconnection prevents over-
heating when the power consumption of the
connected devices is excessive or the ambient
temperature is very high. The 230-volt power
supply can be used once again after a cool-
ing time. First unplug the connector of the con-
nected device and then plug it back in again.
This prevents the electrical device from being
switched on again if this is not wanted.

Power sockets

WARNING

The electrical system is under high voltage!

 Do not spill liquids onto the socket.

Do not plug adapters or extension cords

into the 230 volt power socket. Otherwise,
the integrated child lock will be unlocked
and the power socket will operate.

Do not insert conductive objects (a knitting

needle, for example) into the 230 volt power
socket.

NOTICE

230 volt power socket:

Do not leave devices or connectors that

are too heavy (e.g. a transformer) hanging
directly from the power socket.

Do not connect neon lamps.

Only connect devices to the socket if the

device and socket voltage match.

The built-in overload disconnect function

prevents any electrical devices that require
a high start-up current from turning on. In this
case, unplug the electrical device's power
supply and re-try the connection after about
10 seconds.

Note

Some appliances may not work properly
when connected to the 230 volt sockets due
to a lack of power (watts).

SEAT CONNECT

Legal provisions

During the use of SEAT CONNECT services, in-
formation is transferred and processed online
through the vehicle. Such data can also provide
(at least indirectly) information about the driver
in question, for example, driving behaviour and
location. As a contracting party in the SEAT
CONNECT contract with SEAT, S.A., you must
ensure that when your vehicle is used by other
drivers (for example, family or friends), data
protection and personal rights are respected.
Therefore, you must inform drivers in advance
that the vehicle transfers and receives data on-
line, and that you can access such data.
Not taking into account this obligation to inform,
can infringe certain rights of the occupants.
Users can manage data sending and transfers
through the privacy mode at any time. More
information at: https://my.seat/faq.

Follow-up services: ask all occupants

The follow-up services need geographical and
vehicle data to determine whether the vehicle is
being used within defined speed ranges, where
it has been parked or if it is being used in an es-
tablished geographical area. This information is
displayed on the SEAT CONNECT portal and in
the SEAT CONNECT app.

Therefore, before moving off, ask all the vehi-
cle occupants if they agree with the activated
services. If they do not, deactivate the service in
question (if possible) or do not allow the occu-
pants to use the vehicle.

GPS tracking: marking

If the vehicle has a factory-assembled control
unit that transmits the its current geographical
position and speed, the vehicle usually has this
GPS marking (e.g., on the roof console). The
absence of the marking on the vehicle does not
guarantee that the control unit does not trans-
mit the vehicle’s current geographical position
and speed.

Personal information

SEAT protects your personal data and only
uses them, as long as the law allows it or you
have given your consent on the occasion of a
use. You will find detailed information on data
processing in relation to SEAT CONNECT serv-
ices in the Privacy Policy, which you can ac-
cess in its corresponding current version on the
SEAT website.

Permanent transfer of the vehicle

If another person has left you the vehicle for
permanent use (for example, if you buy a used
vehicle), SEAT CONNECT may already be acti-
vated and the previous user still has the possi-

bility of accessing the data registered through
SEAT CONNECT and control certain functions
of your vehicle.
In the infotainment system you can check if
your vehicle is assigned to a person as the
main user. In this case, you can register yourself
as the main user of the vehicle and thus auto-
matically delete the previous main user. Alter-
natively, through the infotainment system you
can directly and permanently delete the previ-
ous user as the main user, as well as put the
vehicle in offline mode and thus limit both the
communication of your vehicle with the SEAT,
S.A. data server and the processing of personal
and vehicle data.

Safety instructions

Some function areas may include links to third-
party websites. SEAT, S.A. is not the owner of
the third-party websites accessible through the
links, and assumes no liability for their content.
Some function areas may include outside infor-
mation from third-party providers. SEAT, S.A. is
not responsible for such information being cor-
rect, up-to-date or complete, or for ensuring it
does not infringe the rights of third parties.
Radio stations and owners of data media and
audio sources are responsible for the informa-
tion they transmit.

Bear in mind that parking lots, tunnels, tall
buildings, mountains or due to the operation of
other electrical devices, such as chargers, can
also interfere with the reception of the radio
signal.
Foils or adhesives with metallic layers on the
antenna and on the window panes can inter-
fere with radio reception.

WARNING

The infotainment central computer is inter-
connected with the control units mounted
on the vehicle. Therefore, there is a serious
danger of accident and injury if the central
computer is repaired or disassembled and
reassembled incorrectly.

Never replace the central computer with

another used, recycled or from another vehi-
cle at the end of its useful life.

The repair or disassembly and reassembly

of the central computer should only be car-
ried out at specialised workshops. SEAT rec-
ommends visiting a SEAT dealership for this.

WARNING

Any distraction affecting the driver in any
way can lead to an accident and cause inju-
ries. Reading the information on the screen
and managing the infotainment system can
distract your attention from traffic and cause
an accident.

Always drive as carefully and responsibly

as possible.

First steps

WARNING

Connecting, inserting or removing an audio
source or data media while driving can dis-
tract your attention from the traffic and
cause an accident.

WARNING

Select volume settings that allow you to
easily hear signals from outside the vehicle
at all times (e.g. emergency services sirens).

Hearing may be impaired if using too high a

volume setting, even if only for short periods
of time.

WARNING

The following circumstances may result in an
emergency call, phone call or data transmis-
sion not being made or being interrupted:

When in areas with zero or insufficient mo-

bile telephony or GPS signal. Also in tunnels,
confined areas between very tall buildings,
garages, underpasses, mountains and val-
leys.

When in areas with sufficient mobile phone

or GPS signal, the telephony network of
the telecommunications provider has inter-
ference or is not available.

When the vehicle components necessary

to make emergency calls, phone calls and to
transmit data are damaged, do not work or
do not have sufficient electrical power.

When the battery of the mobile phone de-

vice is discharged or its charge level is insuf-
ficient.

WARNING

In some countries and some telephone net-
works it is only possible to make an emer-
gency call, if a mobile telephone device is
connected to the telephone interface of the
vehicle, inside it there is an “unlocked” SIM
card with sufficient balance to make calls
and with sufficient network signal coverage.

WARNING

Read and observe the operating instructions
provided by the manufacturer in question
when using mobile phone devices, data me-
dia, external devices, external audio and
multimedia sources.

WARNING

When changing or connecting an audio
or multimedia source may cause sudden
changes in the volume.

Lower the volume before connecting or

switching to audio or multimedia sources.

WARNING

If mobile phone and radiocommunication de-
vices are used without connection to an
external antenna, the maximum electromag-
netic radiation levels inside the vehicle might
be surpassed, thus posing a risk to the health
of the driver and passengers. This is also the
case if the external antenna has not been
correctly installed.

Keep a distance of at least 20 centimetres

between the antennas of the mobile phone
device and an active medical device, such as
a pacemaker, as mobile phones might alter
the functioning of these devices.

Do not carry a mobile phone switched

on very close or directly on top of an ac-
tive medical device, for instance in a chest
pocket.

Immediately turn off the mobile phone if

you suspect it is causing interferences in an
active medical device or any other medical
device.

WARNING

Mobile phones, external devices and acces-
sories that are loose or not properly secured
could move around the passenger compart-
ment during a sudden driving or braking ma-
noeuvre or an accident and cause damage
or injury.

Set mobile phone devices, external devices

and their accessories outside the airbag de-
ployment areas or store them securely.

dio signal. Also in tunnels, confined areas
between very tall buildings, garages, under-
passes, mountains and valleys.

When the frequency bands of the radio

station have interference or are not available
in areas with sufficient radio signal recep-
tion.

When the speakers and the vehicle com-

ponents necessary for radio reception are
damaged, do not work or do not have suffi-
cient electrical power.

WARNING

Switch off mobile phone devices in areas
with a risk of explosion!

WARNING

The driving recommendations and traffic in-
dications shown on the navigation system
may differ from the current traffic situation.

Traffic signs, signalling systems, traffic

regulations and local circumstances prevail
over driving recommendations and naviga-
tion system indications.

Adapt your speed and driving style to

suit visibility, weather, road and traffic condi-
tions.

Certain circumstances can significantly in-

itially planned lengthen both the duration of
the trip and the route to the destination, or
even temporarily prevent navigation to it, for
example, if a road is closed to traffic.

NOTICE

In areas where special regulations apply or
the use of mobile phones is forbidden, the
mobile device in question must be switched
off at all times. The radiation produced by a
mobile phone device when switched on may
interfere with sensitive technical and medi-
cal equipment, possibly resulting in malfunc-
tion or damage to the equipment.

NOTICE

If the playback volume is excessive or distor-
ted, the speakers may be damaged.

General instructions for use

General instructions for use

Operating indications

The infotainment needs a few seconds for

the complete start-up of the system and during
that time it does not react to inputs. Only the
image of the rear view camera system can be
displayed during system start-up.

The display of all indications and the execu-

tion of functions only takes place once the info-
tainment system has finished booting. The du-
ration of the system booting depends on the
number of infotainment functions and may take
longer than normal in the event of very high or
very low temperatures.

When using the infotainment system and

corresponding accessories, e.g., headphones,
bear in mind country-specific regulations and
legal provisions.

 Some functions of the infotainment system

require an active SEAT CONNECT user account
and an Internet connection for the vehicle. The
data transmission must not be limited to per-
form the functions.

To use the infotainment system, simply lightly

press a button or touch the screen.

For the correct operation of the infotainment

system it is important that it is switched on and
that, if necessary, the time and date of the vehi-
cle are set correctly.

If a function button is missing on the screen,

it is not a device defect, but corresponds to the
specific equipment of the country or version.

Some infotainment functions can only be se-

lected when the vehicle is at a standstill. In
some countries, the selector lever must also be
in the parking position 

P

 or in neutral position 

N

.

It is not a malfunction, but is due to compliance
with legal provisions.

Restrictions on the use of devices using Blue-

tooth® technology may apply in some coun-
tries. For further information, contact the local
authorities.

If you disconnect the 12 volt battery, turn on

the ignition before restarting the infotainment
system.

If the setup is changed, this may change the

display on the screen and in some cases, the
infotainment system may behave in a manner
different to that described in this instruction
manual.

In some countries, the infotainment system

automatically shuts off when the engine is
switched off and the vehicle's 12-volt battery
charge level is low.

 Ensure that any repairs or modifications that

need to be carried out on the infotainment sys-
tem are carried out by a specialised workshop.
SEAT recommends visiting a SEAT dealership
for this.

Using a mobile phone device inside the vehi-

cle may cause noise in the speakers.

On vehicles with park assist, the audio source

volume is automatically lowered when reverse
gear is selected, as well as when the doors are
opened. The volume reduction can be adjusted.

Information about the included software and

the license conditions can be found in 

Set-

tings > Copyright

.

 When selling or lending the vehicle, make

sure that all saved data, files and settings have
been deleted and, if necessary, external audio
sources and data media have been removed.

Note

You will find more information and tips for
using the infotainment system in the 

Help

menu.

HOME screen

In the control and display unit you can set
up the views and representation on the home
screen or use the factory setting templates.
If an icon is missing on the screen, it is not a
device defect, but corresponds to the specific
equipment of the country or version.
The following menus can be included as an
icon on the home screen:

Voice control

Introduction

Voice control works both online and offline, tak-
ing into account the aspects indicated in the
section “

Languages available depending on

the market

”. In online mode, commands are re-

corded more accurately, as more data is avail-
able.
Voice control understands questions and ex-
pressions without having to learn commands.
Commands can be formulated freely and can
be colloquial. Command proposals can be
found in the infotainment system, for example
in the 

 Help > Voice control

 menu.

Functions are reduced in offline mode.
Loud noises inside or outside the vehicle can
cause malfunctions, as well as confusing phra-
ses and answers.

Languages available depending on the mar-
ket

Online and offline:

 German, American Eng-

lish, British English, French, Italian, Spanish,
Czech, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish,
Danish and Norwegian. These languages have
advanced functions such as Online Com-
mands, natural interaction, etc.
The other languages of the infotainment system

do not

 offer natural interaction.

Requirements

Online and offline:

 voice control with the cor-

responding infotainment installed in the vehicle.

Online:

 current SEAT CONNECT Plus contract

active.

Note

Voice control only recognises commands

in the language that is set in the infotainment
system.

Test the voice control with the vehicle stop-

ped before starting to move to familiarise
yourself with its operation.

Online voice search will be faster and more

reliable if the “Use location” privacy setting
is selected.

Voice control can only control functions

that are available as part of the vehicle’s
equipment.

Wake word and commands

Voice control wake words

Voice control starts when the infotainment rec-
ognises the wake word.
If you have connected the voice control via the
wake word, the connected infotainment replies
with “

What would you like to do? 

”.

OR:

 after the wake word, say the desired

command, for example: “

Hola Hola

” and then

heating

”.
