Virtual Cockpit

Post by Silverfoxed » Fri Feb 01, 2019 5:44 pm

Has anyone bought one with the virtual cockpit yet. I placed my order yesterday and didn’t realise this was an option and strongly considering adding it before build. Also are the acoustic front side windows with sunset glass worth a purchase either? Kodiaq Stlye 2WD 150 BHP DSG with adventurer pack, park assist, anthracite wheels.

Thanks @SkodiaqDK. Why do you say that? But you think it’s great right? Also is heated windscreen worth the spend? How long were you waiting for your car? I was told 8-10 weeks but think they might be spoofing!

9 months. But it should improve now all the kodiaqs has been wltp tested.

It just looks good and the way you can customise the info on the display is clever. Furthermore i'm sure almost all cars will get something similar In the near future, so when you one day are going to sell the car, i believe it is money well spend. When you have tried it, the former solution just seem outdated.

Thanks so much, great to know. Is the heated windscreen worth the investment?

I was happy with heated windscreen in my mondeo, and im sure it will be the same with kodiaq. I received the car thursday, and i park it inside my garage, so have not used it yet.

On my mondeo it was nice when/if i had "mist" on the inside. Sometimes it would take som time for the ac to remove it. It works better/faster with heated windscreen. That is my experience. Of course it is also good with ice, but I dont have ice on the windscreen that often.

I think I'll add it! What is blis that you have listed in your overview? Also do you know anything about the acoustic glass that you can add? Thanks for all your help

I would say so, yes. I park on my drive and in the winter it's a god-send to have the heated screen over getting a scraper out! Works really well and thus far would say it works just as well as the one on my Land Rover Disco Sport, but the Skoda one is better because on the LR, you could see little wiggly wires in the glass and there were two elements, left and right, with a slight gap between them in the centre of the screen.

I do miss the heated steering wheel from the LR as well as my Kodiaq came without it...

Hope that helps!

It is blind spot detection.

I did not get the option for acoustic glass, so unless it is in the car as standard, i can't tell you anything about it. The skoda catalogue for 2019 has still not been published. At least not in denmark. I think the car is very silent at speed below 100km/h. 140+ and there is more noise.
