Skoda Connect - Sending Destinations to Car

Post by KaroqLuke » Sat Dec 19, 2020 5:47 pm

Hi all,

Just looking to see if anyone is able to point me in the right direction. I managed to get my Skoda Connect app all setup and can do all the functions such as making the lights flash and lock/unlock the car via the app.

The only thing I’m really struggling with is sending a destination to the navigation system via the app. The first time I tired it, when I got back in the car it popped up on the screen straight away but after trying to use this again it just doesn’t seem to work.

It tells me on the app that I have sent the destination to the car but no longer get the notification coming up like I did when I first tired it. I’ve gone through all the menus trying to figure out if there is anywhere I can pull this up but had no luck at all. Any ideas?

This is what the app says. Can’t find any information on the cars system to be able to do this.

The Connect phone apps have recently been updated. Was it working on the old version and not the new one perhaps? Is your car still parked in the same place with a mobile signal? (Though if you can sound the horn or flash the lights it must be connected OK.)

I've also read that you should be able to send POIs to the car from the Connect portal on a PC, but I can't see anyway to do that.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for the reply, it’s a strange one as it definitely says this is a feature. I’m pretty tech savvy but had no joy getting it to work.

I’ve emailed the Skoda team that deal with this sort of stuff and I’m waiting for a reply. If I manage to get it working I’ll update on here.
