Easier planning of charging stops
Route planning has also been improved to show charging options along the route, including remaining battery capacity and estimated time to replenish power. The navigation system is now better at adding alternative charging stations to the route. These can be easily searched and filtered according to various criteria – whether it should be an IONITY or Powerpass station, for example, the required charging power and so on.
Less cluttered Virtual Cockpit and Head-up
The software upgrade data features improved visualisation in the Virtual Cockpit and Head-up display. Objects around the car now look more realistic, and the battery charge level is shown in percentages in addition to the corresponding symbol.
Personalisation, remote access and destination import
The new version of the ME3 software also affects ŠKODA Connect online services. “The ENYAQ iV is constantly online. One of the available functions is personalisation of several vehicle settings. If customers log in with their ŠKODA ID account in a car, their favourite settings preferences for various systems are transferred from other ŠKODA vehicles that support this service. In this way, for example, the settings for the electric seats, mirrors, air conditioning or assistance systems from another ENYAQ iV can be applied. The selected user profile can be protected by a code and is automatically assigned to a specific physical car key,” ŠKODA Connect specialist František Budinský explains.
The ŠKODA CONNECT online service lets you transfer your personal settings from one ŠKODA car to another.
Because the car is always online, its status or its current parking position, for example, can be monitored remotely. You can also plan a route from the comfort of your home and then send the destination to the car. The MyŠKODA app takes into account the current battery level when calculating the route. As a result, it can plan charging stations along the way in the current version of the app in cooperation with the popular ABRP (A Better Route Planner) server. Once the final destination is sent to the car, the route is recalculated on a remote server using the online Route Calculation service to ensure that the situation has not changed in the meantime.
ME3 makes journeys a lot of fun, partly thanks to the upgraded MyŠKODA app.
