Re: Hand Gestures on the Columbus Infotainment - cool!

Unless I've missed something I think it's a bit of a gimmick. You can swipe left of ride for the odd bit of functionality but it's very limited and certainly isn't going to stop fingerprints on the screen to any great extent. More useful is the softkey buttons disappearing and then reappearing as yo...

Re: Locking the Kodiaq

How did you know the immobiliser came on? Isn't this how every car works? Those doors that are shut are locked, those that aren't lock as soon as they're shut. You know all doors are shut and locked by the indicators flashing. If they don't flash, you know something is ajar. It's just the same as wh...

Re: Look what I've found on the update portal

When I downloaded the update to my PC it wants to extract itself to an SD Card and the instructions only refer to using a 32GB SD card so I'm wondering if an over-the-air update is even possible.

I decided to buy a 64GB card which I can then use for my music collection once the update is complete

Re: Google Street View

So, just had a call from a chap at Skoda UK Customer Services. He's confirmed that Google Street View is no longer supported through Skoda Connect so even though it appears in the pop-up dialogue when you click on the map, it will _never_ work. Google Earth overlay is still supported and works just ...

Re: Google Street View

I've sent the question to Skoda Customer Services but no response yet.

Maybe it's a lisencing thing rather than a legal thing, or that we in the UK are caught up in the German legalities.

Re: 'Personalisation of drive mode selection'

Here you go, a full description from the Skoda Configurator... "Personalisation of drive mode selection Allows multiple drivers to adapt the car’s behaviour to their own personalised settings for certain system features via the user account to which a specific key is assigned.

Re: 'Personalisation of drive mode selection'

Still learning how to use it all, but find it good, especially the seat settings to individual fobs as Di likes to have the seat right up to the steering wheel and l am more laid-back. Thanks David. I do have the fob-to-seat setting as that seems to be provided outside of the full personalisation o...

Re: 'Personalisation of drive mode selection'

Changes media settings, your individual drive mode, and just about everything in the vehicle settings That's the one Zach. I do already have the ability to pair a key to a memory seat position but that's all. The full personalisation option must be a software config thing as it's only a £40 option....

Re: 'Personalisation of drive mode selection'

Vico, thanks for the reply. That's not what I'm referring to. I have the Drive mode select as standard. The personalisation feature is where the car effectively has 'users' and each user can personalise and store many different settings against their name so that when two different people use the ca...

'Personalisation of drive mode selection'

Looking at the configurator on the Skoda website, 'Personalisation of drive mode selection' is (only) a £40 option. Wondering if it's a software tweak or something the dealer could do post delivery. We have an Edition model so have memory seats tied to keys but would be nice to have all the differen...
