Your car and smartphone are now in perfect sync. With the SmartLink system (ŠKODA Connectivity bundle supporting MirrorLink®, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), the radio enables the driver to safely use the phone while driving. All installed applications that are certified as safe for vehicles are compatible with MirrorLink®, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. The SmartLink system is available with Bolero radio and Amundsen navigation system.
The SmartGate is an optional system that uses Wi-Fi to send selected vehicle data to a connected device. The SmartGate feature is a solution connecting the car with a smartphone. It allows the user to see more than 40 parameters via telemetrics – e.g. vehicle speed, rpm, fuel level, trip computer or g-meter, brake status or throttle position.
The hands-free system guarantees the ease and safety of telephone use while driving. The Bluetooth unit also facilitates A2DP audio streaming and can maintain two simultaneous Bluetooth wireless connections. With the Bolero or Amundsen infotainment system, you can also read, write and send text messages (SMS) via the touchscreen.
The option to connect external multimedia players and memory devices (USB sticks) via the linear Aux-In (3.5mm jack) or the USB connector is standard with one of the ŠKODA radios.
Want to have your audio device always at hand yet hidden from view? The Bolero infotainment radio and Amundsen infotainment navigation system can now play your favourite tracks from an SD card. The slot on the side of the glove box can read SD, SDHC and SDXC cards.
