Re: Living with an SE

1. Using google maps do you have to have your mobile data on for it to work ? Subtly different answer depending on what you mean. For the Google Earth overlay to be displayed on the built in Sat Nav it needs a data connection. That can either be a sim card in the glove box slot, connecting to you p...

Re: Initial stages

I may as well try it if they have one, but I’m highly skeptical about just 250Nm in a relative large vehicle. On paper that is just hopelessly underpowered, and too much of a come down to what I’m used to. Heck I’m concerned about the power of the 2.0TDI 190 as it is. :-) It's great around town and...

Re: Initial stages

Engine wise I'm only interested in the 190 Diesel with DSG to be honest. I'm used to 520Nm torque in our main family car which is an SUV, and 380Nm in our hatchback runabout. I've had big petrol engines and torquey diesels in the past but went with a 1.4TSI DSG Kodaiq. Highly sceptical before I tes...

Columbus Firmware Update

My head unit (Columbus) announced it had updated itself yesterday and then promptly rebooted itself.

Anyone aware of this and what's changed?

I guess that Shhhkoda will start becoming a bit more forthcoming with potential renewers by November 2018 :)

Trust me... it will be gone by week 45 next year.
When's week 45?

It's still showing as a feature in the description of 'Infotainment Online' when you go to pay for a renewal. Seems a bit rich if they're going to remove it - there's no mention of that possibility at the point of purchase :-/

Re: Google Earth disappeared

Google Earth still available on my car which was built just over a year ago and I've just applied the latest map versions for the UK (2018/2019) I understood it to be Google Street Map that had been pulled. That never worked on mine from the start and I've noticed recently the option to try to selec...

Re: Ouch new tyre needed

Have you checked your tyres for self sealing. The Pirelli Scorpio verde have seal inside, so that when the nail/screw is removed it seals the tyre back up. If you look on the tyre wall you will see "Seal inside". This is just under the 'O' is Scorpio. I pretty sure that the Hancook's have the same ...

Re: Passenger mirror dipping in reverse

From memory, you have to actually move the mirror to the dipped position you require the first time, then it's memorised. There isn't a 'standard' dipped position. From memory, do everything you have, i.e. enable it in the menu, turn the mirror position dial to 'L' and then put the car in reverse......

Skoda Connect Notifications

Question re Skoda Connect Notifications. I have a couple of leave home/arrive home notifications set-up on the car via Skoda Connect. I had previously turned off email notifications and only got a notification on my phone via the Skoda Connect app. In the past week I've started to get email notifica...
