There is a choice of four different infotainment systems with touchscreens measuring up to 10 inches. An innovative touch slider for adjusting the volume or the section of the navigation system’s map celebrates its premiere. For the first time, maps can be shown in the central display and in the latest generation of the Virtual Cockpit in different levels of zoom.
There is a choice of four different infotainment systems from Volkswagen Group’s latest-generation modular infotainment matrix. Even Swing, the entry-level system, comes with an 8.25-inch touchscreen that can be personalised and with a DAB tuner. Smartphones can be paired via wireless SmartLink technology and Android Auto, Apple CarPlay or MirrorLink™, offering access to infotainment apps such as weather or news apps. To this end, the OCTAVIA is always online thanks to its in-built eSIM. Both the Bolero infotainment system, for which a navigation function can be activated at a later stage, and the Amundsen navigation system have a 10-inch touchscreen. They can be operated using gesture control or verbally using the Laura ŠKODA Digital Assistant, who understands fluently spoken complete sentences in six different languages. The maps are updated online, Internet radio and streaming services for music and TV, such as the optional ŠKODA Media Command, are also available. The top-of-the-range Columbus infotainment system also has a 10-inch screen and can display the navigation system’s maps in a different level of zoom than the Virtual Cockpit. This new function can be adjusted using the innovative touch slider below the display, which also controls the volume.
