Infotainment

Introductory information

Important information

Introduction to the subject

WARNING

Only use Infotainment in such a way that you have control of the vehicle

in every traffic situation (e.g. Do not write text messages while driving, do

not couple or connect the telephone, do not work with the contact list, do

not enter any destinations, do not connect WLAN or SmartLink etc.)- Oth-

erwise there is a risk of an accident!

Always route the connection cable of the external device in such a way

that it does not restrict you when driving.

WARNING

Adjust the volume to ensure that acoustic signals from outside the vehi-

cle, e.g. sirens from emergency vehicles, can be heard at all times.

High volumes can cause hearing damage!

CAUTION

In some countries, some Infotainment features can no longer be selected

when the vehicle is running faster than a certain speed. This is not a malfunc-

tion, but complies with the national legal regulations.

Mobile devices and applications

Fig. 177 

QR code with reference to web

pages for checking the compati-

bility of devices

The availability of some of the functions described in this Owner's Instruction

depends on the type of device to be connected and the applications instal-

led in it.

Compatibility

On the ŠKODA pages, check to see if Infotainment is compatible with the se-

lected mobile devices. This check takes place by reading the QR code

» Fig. 177

 or after typing the following address into the web browser.

http://go.skoda.eu/compatibility

Applications

Applications can be installed in external devices (e.g. Mobile, tablet) making it

possible to display additional information in the Infotainment screen or to op-

erate Infotainment.
Due to the variety of applications as well as their ongoing development, the

available applications may not work in all external devices. ŠKODA AUTO can

accept no liability for their proper function.
The range of available applications and their functionality is dependent on the

Infotainment type, as well as vehicle and region.

Voice control

Introduction to the subject

Applies to Infotainment Columbus, Amundsen, Bolero.

The navigation, telephone, radio and media menu can be operated by voice

commands.
The voice control system can be used either by the driver or by the front pas-

senger.

Function requirements for voice control

Infotainment is switched on.
There will be no telephone call using a telephone connected to Infotain-

ment.
The parking aid is not active.

Requirements for optimum voice command recognition

The voice commands must only be issued when the 

 symbol is displayed on

the Infotainment screen and the input tone has completely faded.

Speak at your normal volume without intonation and long breaks.

Avoid poor pronunciation.

Close the doors and window in order to avoid disturbing environmental influ-

ences on the function of the voice control.

You are recommended to speak louder at higher speeds, so that the sound of

your voice is not drowned out by the increased ambient noise.

During voice control, limit additional noise in the vehicle, e.g. passengers talk-

ing at the same time.

WARNING

The emergency number should be dialled manually. Your voice commands

may not be recognized in such situations. The telephone connection may

not be established or the connection may take too much time to complete.

CAUTION

The messages are generated by Infotainment. The flawless clarity (e.g. road

or city name) cannot always be guaranteed.

For some Infotainment languages, there is no voice control available. Info-

tainment indicates this fact through a text message that is displayed after set-

ting the device language screen.

Note

During voice control, no nav. announcements and traffic announcements are

played.
