On the manufacturing date, this unit was classified as a class 1 laser prod-

uct in accordance with the national/international standards

DIN EN 60825-1: 2008-05 and DHHS Rules 21 CFR, Subchapter J. The la-

ser used in this class 1 laser product is so weak that there is no risk of dan-

ger when operated correctly.

This product is designed such that the laser is restricted to the inside of

the unit. However, the installed laser could be classified in a higher class

were the housing to be removed. For this reason, never remove the unit

has dissipated, playback is fully functional again.


After pressing the 

 button , there is a delay of a few seconds before the

CD is ejected.

On uneven or unpaved roads, playback jumps may occur.

message is displayed CD is unreadable.

It is possible that CDs protected by copyright cannot not be played back at

all or only in certain circumstances.

To pair a telephone with the device using Bluetooth


, it is necessary to pair the

two devices.
The range of the connection to the hands-free system is limited to the passen-

ger compartment.
With the device, a phone can be connected. The telephone can also be a Blue-



player at the same time.

Up to 20 external devices can be paired with the device. After reaching the

maximum number, the pairing of the next external device will replace that of

the device that has not been used for the longest period of time.
A connection with a telephone that is already paired does not require pairing. It

is enough to find the telephone that has been paired in the list of paired

phones and make the connection.
For phones with multiple SIM cards,calls can be answered using any SIM card

from the connected phone depending on the model of the connected phone.

For outgoing calls, it depends on the type of connected telephone, either only

the primary SIM card or one of the other SIM cards can be selected.
Information on the compatibility of phones can be found on the following

ŠKODAInternet sites.

Starting and stopping the engine


It is possible, with the key in the ignition, to switch the ignition off and on and

start/stop the engine.


Never switch off the engine before the vehicle is stationary – risk of acci-


While driving with the engine stopped the ignition must always be

switched on. Otherwise, the steering may lock - danger of an accident!

Do not withdraw the ignition key from the ignition lock until the vehicle

has come to a stop 

» page 92

Parking. Otherwise, the steering may lock -

danger of an accident!

Never leave the vehicle unattended with the engine running - risk of acci-

dent, theft or similar.

Never (e.g. in garages) run the engine in a closed place - there is the dan-

ger of poisoning and death!


Only start the engine when the engine and the vehicle are stationary - there

is a danger of starter and engine damage!

Do not push-start the engine – risk of damaging the engine and the catalytic

converter. The battery from another vehicle can be used as a jump-start aid.


Do not warm up the engine while the vehicle is stationary. If possible, start

your journey as soon as the engine has started. Through this, the engine rea-

ches its operating temperature faster.

Electronic immobiliser and steering lock

Read and observe   and   on page 88 first.

The electronic immobiliser (hereinafter referred to as immobiliser) makes the

theft or unauthorised use of your vehicle more difficult.


The immobilizer allows the engine to be started only with the original car key.

Do not switch the engine off immediately at the end of your journey if the en-

gine has been working at high revs over a prolonged period, but leave it to run

at an idling speed for about 1 minute. This prevents any possible accumulation

of heat when the engine is switched off.

tinue to operate for approx. 10 minutes.



The START-STOP system (hereinafter referred to as: the system) reduces



emissions and harmful emissions, and saves fuel.

If the system determine that the engine is not needed when the vehicle stops

(e.g. at the traffic lights), it turns off the engine and starts it again when mov-

ing off.
The system function depends on many factors. Some of them are down to the

driver, the others are systemic and can neither be influenced nor identified.
Therefore the system may react differently in situations which seem identi-

cal from the driver's perspective.
