The ŠKODA OCTAVIA’s eSIM provides access to ŠKODA Connect mobile online services. These include eCall, which is mandatory in the EU and automatically calls for emergency assistance in the event of an accident, and Proactive Service (breakdown call), which transmits the position and status of the vehicle to the breakdown service in the event of a technical problem. The Vehicle Health Report automatically stores important data each time the ignition is switched off. In addition, Service Scheduling can keep in contact with the garage, allowing service notifications to be relayed, service appointments to be scheduled or relevant data to be transmitted in the event of a breakdown. The remote vehicle access via the ŠKODA Connect app or the ŠKODA Connect web portal allows owners, for example, to retrieve vehicle information and driving data, display the car’s parking location, and activate the remote-controlled Honk & Flash function making it easier to find the OCTAVIA in the car park, as well as to lock and unlock the doors and close any open windows. The Infotainment Online services backed by online data offer route calculations, real-time traffic information as well as help with the search for petrol stations and parking spaces. For streaming services or the provision of a Wi-Fi hotspot for passengers, data packages can easily be added from the vehicle.
