The new Skoda Kodiaq is not only the first Skoda entrance in the segment, but also a promoter of new services offered by the Czech manufacturers. Clients will be fully connected with the new Skoda Connect. This is divided into two categories. The Infotainment Online services provide information and aid navigation, while the Care Connect services provide assistance as well as remote access to the car.

The Infotainment Online services are available in every Kodiaq that is equipped with the Amundsen or Columbus navigation systems. 

One standout feature here is the online traffic information: this displays the current traffic flow on the selected route and suggests sensible alternative routes in the event of a traffic jam. With Google Earth and Google StreetView, navigation using the Columbus navigation system becomes a visual experience. Additionally, the services provide customised information for drivers of the brand’s new large SUV in the form of fuel prices, parking information, news and weather.

Besides the Infotainment Online services, the Care Connect services, which can be divided into Proactive Services and Remote Vehicle Access, will also be available from now on. These come as standard on every Kodiaq in the UK, irrespective of the choice of infotainment system. The data is exchanged via the car’s own integrated SIM card.

The Care Connect services also include the Remote Vehicle Access, which can be accessed via the Skoda Connect app, via the user’s smartphone. Here the Vehicle Status service remotely informs the user about the status of the lights and fuel tank of the SUV as well as whether the doors are open or closed. 

The Parking position function shows where the vehicle is parked. The Honk & Flash function makes it easier to find the car by activating the horn and indicator, as the name suggests.
