Did you lock your car as you were hurrying to catch your flight? Using the ŠKODA Connect Portal or app, you can easily check whether your vehicle is locked or simply lock it with a single tap. You even can unlock it in the same manner – for example when your passengers reach the car before you do.

Online anti-theft alarm

No matter where you are, you will immediately be alerted by email, smartphone or smartwatch if your anti-theft alarm is activated, and of the time and reason, so you can take the necessary action. This service is enabled every time you lock your car.

Area notification

If this happens, you will be alerted on your smartphone and smartwatch or by email. Use ŠKODA Connect Portal or app to set up to 10 different areas and active periods when the car is to be monitored.

Speed notification
Keep track of how your car is being used and set a one-off or recurring alert if it goes faster than the speed you have selected. If the vehicle exceeds the selected speed limit, you will be alerted on your smartphone and smartwatch or by email. You can access, set and manage the speed limit status at any time in the ŠKODA Connect Portal or app.

Driving data
Whether you want to know the parameters of your last journey in order to practise consumption control or simply have a summary of all your previous trips, Driving Data is the ideal solution. You can retrieve current data on vehicle use, such as average fuel consumption, average speed or distance travelled, via the ŠKODA Connect Portal or ŠKODA Connect App.

Vehicle status
Whether you’ve just got home after leaving your vehicle parked somewhere or want to check up on your car on the other side of the city, use your PC, smartphone or smartwatch for a quick update of your car’s current status. In an instant, you can check the remaining range, the AdBlue level, whether the car is locked, and whether the lights are off and all windows are closed.

Parking position
Don’t panic about where you left your car in a large car park or unknown city. Parking Position consigns those worries to the past. The vehicle transmits its position data once after every trip. After retrieving the data via smartphone or smartwatch, you can find your parked vehicle using its GPS position.

Honk & flash
Know where you’re parked, but looking for your car in a sea of vehicles? Just pull your smartphone and use Honk & Flash to activate the horn and/or hazard lights remotely. Problem solved in a jiffy, and you can smile in relief. This service works within 500 metres of the parked car.

Emergency call / eCall
A very important part of ŠKODA Connect is the Emergency Call and eCall  safety feature that comes either as standard or as part of the Care Connect service package and is free of charge for the car’s entire lifetime.

Emergency call / eCall
Emergency Call/eCall provides instant assistance. It is activated automatically if sensors report a major accident. Emergency Call establishes an audio and data connection to a special emergency call centre (eCall dials 112/999 directly) and conveys all the necessary information. A voice call is established and the customer is looked after until help arrives.

Service Scheduling
*Service scheduling is a part of the Proactive Service – Care Connect package. Select your preferred Authorised Repairer in ŠKODA Connect and your car will inform them directly if any maintenance or repair is needed. Simple and Comfortable!

Vehicle with ŠKODA Connect will send information to your chosen Authorised Repairer before service interval (maintenance, oil change) or when certain warning lights appear on dashboard. You will be contacted by your chosen Authorised Repairer through your preferred communication channel.

Full warning lights description can be found within the relevant Owner's manuals.
