Important informationWarrantyThe equipment warranty terms and conditions also apply for new vehicles. After the expiration of the warranty, a piec
e of equipment in need of repair will be
replaced with a reconditioned, original item with spare part warranty. It is, however, a precondition that the housing has
not been damaged and no unauthorised
attempts have been made
to carry out repairs.

Damage within the meaning of the warranty
must not be the result of improper
handling of the system or from unprofessi
onal repair attempts. It is also essential
that there is no external damage.Device operationThe unit should only be used, if the traffic situation permits it. The volume settings must be selected in
such a way that audible signals from the
outside, e.g. a Martins horn from utility
vehicles (police cars, ambulances and fire
brigade), can be heard at all times.
Please concentrate fully at
all times on your driving! As the driver you are
fully responsible for road safety. Only use the functions of the radio in such a way that you are always in full contro
l of your vehicle in all traffic situa-
Inserting a second CD while a CD is being ejected can destroy the CD drive in
the unit. Please note that the CD ejecti
on lasts a few seconds after pressing the
. During this time the lock in fron
t of the CD case is open. It is essen-
tial that you wait until the CD has been fully ejected before you try to insert a new CD.•
Press the buttons and the keys of the uni
t gently in order to avoid damaging
them. Gentle pressure on the appropriate key is sufficient to operate the unit. Please note that the control buttons have
predetermined breaking points, in order
to reduce the risk of injury.•
Do not use any pointed or sharp-edged objects to operate the touch-screen.
Slight finger pressure sufficient to oper
ate the equipment. A text in the display,
which cannot be called up by pressing the
button, is therefore not available at that
Using the displayCarefully handle the display because dent
s and scratches can occur through pres-
sure of the finger or contact with sharp objects. The display can be cleaned wi
th a soft cloth and finger marks can be wiped away
with pure alcohol.
Do not use solvent such as turpentine or
petrol as they will corrode the display
surface.Anti-theft protectionAnti-theft codingYour radio is equipped with
a convenience coding. If the radio is being operated for
the first time, the safety code is not only st
ored in the radio but also in the vehicle.
After disconnecting and reconnecting the battery, first of all switch on the ignition and then the radio. If you wish to install the radio in another
vehicle, the safety code must be entered.
In this case, please do not hesitate to co
ntact an authorised Škoda Service Partner
or a Škoda importer. As the unit only functions afte
r entering the safety code, this practically excludes its
use after a theft - a contribution to increased anti-theft safety.
The code is stored in the instrument cluste
r. This ensures that it is automatically
decoded (convenience coding). Manual
input of the code is normally not

4Enter codeIf a keypad appears after switching
on with the command to enter the
code, the unit can be unlocked by entering the correct four-digit code number. The number of the possible attempts is shown in the second display line. – Press directly a digit from to on the digit block displayed on the
display. The digit is accepted in the entry line.
– After a four-digit order has been entered, the group of digits will turn
grey (inactive) and no further digits can be accepted in the entry line.
– Press on the display to erase the digits in the entry line from right
to left and thereby correct your input, if necessary.
– If the correct code number is displayed in the entry line, press .Code number The code number can only be called up “onl
ine” via the Škoda system, as this guar-
antees even more effective anti-theft protection. Please contact your authorized Škoda Service Partner, if necessary. Incorrect code number If an incorrect code is confirmed after entry of the code, the procedure can be repeated
. The number of attempts is shown in the second display line.
If the code number is entered incorrectl
y for the second time, the unit will be
blocked for approx. one hour. It is possible
to enter again the safety code after one
hour has expired, when the unit and the ignition have been switched on. If two invalid attempts are then made agai
n, the navigation system will be blocked
again for an hour. The cycle - two attempts, blocked for
an hour - will continue to apply.
General - operationThe screen of the unit is a so-called
touch screen (touch-screen). Fields
circled in colour on the touch-screen are presently “active” and are oper-ated by touching the screen. “Function keys” on the screen – Active fields, which call up a function or a Setup, are called “function

- Speed dependent volume adaptation;
- Switching on or off the tone signal when storing the radio
stations. Reducing the volume when activating the parking aid (PDC)* If your vehicle is
equipped with “parking aid”,
the volume is automatically
decreased to a pre-defined value, wh
en the “parking aid” is active.
GALA function Your radio increases automatically its volu
me with the increasing vehicle speed. A
higher setting value results in a stronger volume increase.

8If a radio station sends additional inform
ation via the RDS function while a station
is being stored, it can occur that the name
of the radio station is later displayed
incorrectly in the memory list.Traffic information function– Press on the button , in order to switch the traffic information func-
tion on or off.
The display “
TP” in combination with a station name (e. g. in the station or memory
list), indicates a traffic information station. The operational readiness of the traffic information function is indicated by “
the top right in the display. If no traffic information st
ation can be received becaus
e, for example, radio recep-
tion is interrupted in general, “
” will be displayed instead of “
that car parks, tunnels, high
buildings or mountains can interrupt the radio signal
up to the total loss of reception. Incoming traffic announcement When a traffic announcemen
t is being received, a pop-up window will open.
If you wish to interrupt the transmission
of the traffic announcement, press on the
function key in the pop-up window
. The traffic infor-
mation function remains available and a
following traffic anno
uncement is made
again while the audio mode is in op
eration. Pressing the function key
will switch off the traffic information function permanently.
Traffic information memoryAutomatic recording of traffic reports If the traffic information function is switched on and a traffic information station is received, the incoming
traffic reports will be recorded
, as long as the ignition is
switched on. This way you are
informed at any time of the current traffic situation,
even if you have your radio switched
off for a lengthy period while driving.
If the vehicle is not in use (ignition off) while a traffic information station is received and the traffic information function is sw
itched on, incoming traffic reports from
this station are recorded for two hours. When switching the ignition off the current traffic information station is displayed for about five seconds, from which the ne
xt 65 minutes of traffic reports will be
recorded. During this display of five seco
nds, you can select another traffic infor-
mation station using the arrow keys on
the unit, which will be recorded.
If, when the vehicle is not in use, the rece
ption of the set traffic information station
is too poor because of external influences
, it will automatically search for another
traffic information station. A maximum of nine traffic a
nnouncements with a total length of up to four minutes
can be recorded. The oldest traffic report
will always be overwritten if the memory
is full. TIM recording times You also have the possibility to set two TIM recording times, to which the unit will also record traffic reports when the vehicl
e is not in use. Then the radio starts
according to the set TIM recording time with
the recording of all the incoming traffic
reports on the set traffic information station. For example, when you drive your vehicle to
work everyday at a certain time, only
enter the approximate start time. The radio starts with the recording at the set start time and ends the recording 65 minutes afterwards. In this way, before you begin your journey, you can retrieve the last traf
fic reports and tune into the current traffic
situation of the distance to be driven.
In case of a message of over four minu
tes long, the beginni
ng is overwritten.
If the vehicle has not been used for mo
re than three days, no further traffic
reports are recorded, in order to stop
the vehicle battery from running down.
