ŠKODA SCALA and ŠKODA KAMIQ offer new Wireless SmartLink technology for smartphone integration

› SCALA and KAMIQ are the first ŠKODA models to offer wireless Apple CarPlay and

Android Auto support

› Easier access to smartphone apps and more convenient mirroring of contents on the

vehicle display

› Also available: wireless inductive in-car smartphone charging

Mladá Boleslav, 28 August 2019 – Both the SCALA and the KAMIQ now enable drivers to

connect a smartphone to their car using wireless technology. They are the first models from

the ŠKODA family to offer the new Wireless SmartLink technology, which makes for even

more convenient use of Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. In conjunction with the inductive

charging feature of the optional Phone Box and the cordless connection to the vehicle

aerial, this even enables completely wireless in-car smartphone use.

Up until now, ŠKODA drivers had to connect their mobile phones to their vehicles via a USB cable

in order to be able to use the brand’s SmartLink technology. Selected smartphone apps then

display on the infotainment system’s screen and can be controlled while driving. However, the

optional Wireless SmartLink technology for the compact SCALA and the new KAMIQ city SUV is

now making smartphone integration and use even easier and more convenient.

The first time a smartphone is used, drivers have to establish a connection to the infotainment

system via Bluetooth. Once this has been done, the phone will always connect automatically via

Wireless SmartLink as soon as the driver enters the car, provided the Bluetooth function is

activated. The smartphone is paired via Bluetooth; the data for mirroring is transmitted over Wi-Fi. If

the smartphone is placed in the optional Phone Box upon entering the vehicle, it connects to the

infotainment system as well as to the vehicle’s outside aerial to ensure optimal reception and is

inductively charged at the same time.
