Screen clock

Post by rsk289 » Tue Mar 10, 2020 2:33 pm

I really like driving with just a nice, analogue clock face showing on the screen of my cars if at all possible. The Kodiaq's is a particularly nice example, and I would like to use it. I can go through settings, screen and tick the box for clock coming on after a set time, but it seems I have to do this every time I start the car. That's annoying - is there any way it can be set to come on when the screen has been inactive for a bit as a default? Would this have to be via Skoda Connect, or some other way?

Hi,. I do believe the clock acts as a 'Sceeen Saver' and therefore will only activate when the infortainment is in standby mode whilst the car is either running or have the electricals engaged. So realistically, it can't be done.

Hope that helps.

If anyone knows of a way, I'll be interested too.

I think that's right James, and I wasn't wanting it to come on instantly, just after a period of inactivity would be fine. It seems you have to tell the system to engage the 'screensaver' each time.

On my car as long as you keep the infotainment in standby mode when you turn the car off it remembers.

The infotainment system permanently has the standby box ticked, so I guess that means it's in standby... yours might remember more than mine as I believe it's an RS. Memory capability seems to be connected to trim level, and the lowly SE L doesn't run to it!

I dont believe that there is a difference between the trim levels for the infotainment system fitted the except for the SE has the Bolero and SEL and above has Columbus.

This means that there is the same functionality of Columbus on the SEL as there is on the vRS, the only caveat is some models will have additional functions and settings for the additional equipment such as virtual cockpit and Lane Assist etc. I dont believe there is any difference of memory settings etc. and standby modes.

If that is so, I wonder why some cars are remembering settings and others not?

It might be down to who's pressing the buttons rather than what the systems are capable of doing.

Well, I’ve not found a ‘save changes’ button anywhere!

Can we assume that you have read the manual regarding standby mode, switch off screen and
Display clock when screen is off settings and you understand the latter two work in combination with each other?
