For the tenth consecutive year, ‘auto motor und sport’ and MO/OVE invited their readers and online audience to participate in the annual poll on the best connected car services. In total, over 12,000 respondents cast their votes across eleven categories. In the price/performance stars category, 22.4% of participants rated Škoda’s Pay to Park service the highest for having the best price/performance ratio of all the connectivity options available.
The Pay to Park service displays available on-street parking zones and spaces throughout Europe. With the MyŠkoda smartphone app or the vehicle’s infotainment system, Škoda drivers can search for parking spots, select and pay for them, and even extend their parking duration, all remotely.
The service is compatible with the Fabia, Kamiq, Scala, Octavia, Karoq, Superb, and Kodiaq models; the Enyaq family will soon be joining this list. Vehicles equipped with the current Amundsen or Columbus infotainment systems simply require a one-time registration with Škoda Connect and Remote Access to be activated. 43,500 users are now registered for Pay to Park, with around 40% using the in-car app on their vehicle’s infotainment system.
The service is currently available in Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Italy, Norway, and Sweden and being rolled out in France, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain, and Hungary. The number of listed parking spaces is continuously increasing.
