Skoda Simply Clever Technology

Driving Skoda means driving in luxury with the latest technology at your fingertips.    A touchscreen infotainment system takes pride of place on the dashboard of all our new Skoda models that allows you access everything on your smartphone at the touch of a button.   Skoda has put much thought, much design and a lot of wisdom into the functionality of that touchscreen and how it will revolutionise your driving experience.  Taking full advantage of smart phone sophistication, Skoda has fully integrated mobile technology with your in-car system so you can always be online safely and securely and smoothly.  Skoda are pleased to offer two entirely different ways to allow you connect your smart phone with your car.  Smartlink and SmartGate

Smartlink

Skoda Smartlink is an innovative, in-car infotainment system that gives you access to all the features on your smartphone when you are behind the wheel.

  • Mirrorlink.  The name gives it away.  With this savvy system, the touch screen will mirror that of your phone or tablet and allow you to follow directions comfortably and safely on a map, play music, call home or anything else that you normally use your phone for, except you are driving at the time.  Perfect.
  • Android Auto.  Connect your phone to your car display—your Android apps show up onscreen, just like that. Tap to get driving directions or talk to send a text. Even call your mom, hands-free. Android Auto is made to help you focus on the road. And have fun along the way. Just plug in and go.
  • Apple Car Play.  With Apple Car Play can get directions, make calls, send, and receive messages, and enjoy your favourite music while driving.  The information from your phone is shown on your car’s built-in display. The iOS 14, CarPlay introduces all-new app categories and custom wallpapers for your CarPlay dashboard to make driving a more enjoyable experience.  The Apple Car offers digital car keys, allowing you to unlock and start your car with the iPhone. CarPlay just lets you safely use all the things you love about your iPhone while you drive!

Connecting your smartphone to a Skoda fitted with SmartLink is simple.  A simple USB connector will provide an instant connection with the added bonus of keeping your phone charged at the same time.  Another option is to search for your phone via your car’s Bluetooth.  If you are connecting an Android phone there is a choice of connection via MirrorLink or Android Auto.    Select the option that you prefer from the screen menus.  The system is compatible with a range of devices, including tablets.    You can check here for your own device

Smart Gate

Skoda Smartgate is a really clever piece of technology.  The Skoda SmartGate sends real time data on every aspect of your journey to your phone. This is invaluable information for any motorist.  It will let you know if you are using too much fuel or braking too hard. It allows the driver to see the vehicle speed, engine revs, fuel level, trip computer or g-meter, brake status or the throttle position. Special mobile apps in your smartphone download and analyse current driving data provided from the car system by SmartGate to give you records on operating figures, driving efficiency and costs.

As our Digital Dealership grows we know that more buyer confidence is needed throughout the online buying process and to assist we have introduced the Western Motors Group Used Car Grading System. The system has been devised to offer more transparency to our customers and to provide an easy guide as to the quality of the used car being sold.
