The ŠKODA Kodiaq offers state-of-the-art, third‑generation infotainment systems from Volkswagen Group featuring large touchscreens and a comprehensive list of online features (including radio). The Bolero, Amundsen and Columbus systems come with a digital DAB radio and are permanently online thanks to a built-in eSIM. Virtual cockpit (10.25 inches) with new layouts is available as an option.
The Bolero infotainment system and the Amundsen navigation system in the refreshed ŠKODA Kodiaq feature an 8-inch touchscreen. Thanks to a built-in eSIM, they are always online and offer digital DAB radio as well as optional web radio. The system can be operated via the touchscreen, the buttons and knurled wheels on the multifunction steering wheels, or by using Laura, the digital voice assistant. Backed by online data, it can understand 15 languages. The Columbus navigation system comes with a 9.2-inch screen. Map and software updates are installed ‘over the air’.
Virtual cockpit with model-specific layouts for the Kodiaq SportLine and vRS
The Virtual Cockpit is standard on vRS and optional on all other trims. This features a 10.25-inch display and offers five redesigned layouts. The information displayed in the Classic, Extended, Modern, Basic and Sport layouts can be individually configured by the driver. The layouts for the Kodiaq SportLine and Kodiaq vRS are model-specific and feature a more dynamic background. A centre-console Phone Box (wireless charging) for inductively charging a smartphone is another extra. Mobile devices can also be connected to the vehicle and charged via a USB-C port. There is even an optional USB-C port on the rear-view mirror, to power a dashcam for example.
Infotainment apps for weather and news
The online features in the ŠKODA Kodiaq include the infotainment apps. They display the news and the weather, and can connect a personal Google calendar to the vehicle. Smartphones can be paired using Wireless SmartLink technology, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The ŠKODA Connect infotainment online services enable, among other things, remote access to the vehicle via the MyŠKODA app. This allows the driver to lock and unlock their Kodiaq via a smartphone, display the car’s location on a map or activate the Honk & Flash function to make it easier to find the vehicle in a large car park.
