What is the Over-the-Air Update?

Like your computer or smartphone, your vehicle has embedded software fully integrated into the vehicle. Over-the-Air Updates ensure that the software in your vehicle remains up to date via vehicle network connectivity. The updates are designed to improve the operation and performance of your vehicle and may include new features or functionalities.

Why should I update my software?

It is important to maintain your vehicle’s software. Updates offered remotely, or "over-the-air", are quick, convenient and save your time.

How does the Over-the-Air Update work?

In electric vehicles, updates will be downloaded automatically in the background while the vehicle is in operation. For comfort and convenience of installation, we recommend starting the installation process after you have arrived home or parked the car.

FAQ

  1. Online vehicle – when your vehicle is running, make sure the light of the SOS module in your overhead console is green. If it is, this means your vehicle is “online” and able to communicate with Škoda servers.

  2. Active Primary User - Please make sure that your vehicle has a primary user assigned. If not, please add the VIN of your vehicle to your Garage in MyŠkoda app and follow the proposed steps. You can also check the video provided here.

  3. Network coverage – because Over-the-Air Updates are delivered to your vehicle via Škoda Connect services, cellular network coverage is essential for an update to be successful. If network connectivity becomes limited after the process has started, the update will be automatically restored after network connectivity becomes available again. You can check your vehicle’s signal strength on the main infotainment display.

No, even after the download has been completed, you’ll still need a signal strong enough for the actual installation. For example, if you usually park your vehicle in an underground parking garage, installation may not work. A data connection is required.

The high-voltage battery must be at least 50% charged to start the installation.

No, the vehicle cannot be charged during installation. Please stop charging (if doing so) and then start installing the update. To successfully complete the Over-the-Air Update, please ensure that the state of charge is at least 50%.

No, but you can postpone an update. To do so, simply tap Cancel on your infotainment screen after you have been prompted to install the software update. If you change your mind, you can always start the update via the option on the Goodbye Screen.

Turn off your vehicle and you will see the notification in the Goodbye Screen.

If the Over-the-Air Update is still available, you will receive an in-vehicle notification to start the installation process again. Otherwise, please contact the Infoline via the “i” button on your roof module or ask your Škoda dealer how to proceed.

Updates are rolled out in batches across all vehicles in operation. You will receive an in-vehicle notification once the update becomes available for your vehicle.

For the Enyaq iV, the new features will be explained in the Release Notes. These will be available under Further Information on your infotainment screen before and after the update is completed.

Sometimes the Over-the-Air Update only improves background functionalities or systems.
