Hi Rivendell63 (glad to see some activity on this forum). My 2 main concerns....the start/stop system, on my merc there was an ECO button that would show amber, when all conditions were met (eng temp, battery charge etc) the color would go green. You then knew the stop/start was active. There is no such indication that tells you if the system is active on the Kamiq. If it is, when I stop, the engine stops & I get a dash indication of an A with a circular arrow around it telling me my engine has stopped. Well I know that because the bloody Rev counter is at zero. I need to know if the engine will stop in advance ie when approaching roundabouts etc. Secondly in the heating/a/c display, I have a picture of 2 persons (bottom left) front is highlighted rear is ‘greyed’ out. There is a rear passenger vent in the car which emits a very small amount of air even when on full boost. How do I highlight the rear passenger symbol to obtain max air via rear vent. Skoda uk customer service (after consulting with hq engineers said “it’s a touch screen” so just highlight it”. Crap, it doesn’t work. I fed the info back but ne response since. I’ll see if I can download photos.

Hi Rivendell63. Firstly it’s nice to see some activity on the forum. I know the Kamiq is fairly new but admit to being disappointed at how little posts there are. I was a member of the Aclass forum in the early days but there was loads of contributions & I really enjoyed it. Being an early owner I was able to pass on experienced contributions.
Struggling???, yes firstly trying to navigate this forum but hopefully frustration will ease.
The Kamiq?. I am having real problems with the dash controls & set up. Earlier I posted my issues with the start/stop system & heating controls. I was able to post a couple of photos but don’t know which feed it was but at least being able to post photos was easier that the Aclass club. Have a look at my entries yesterday... you may be able to help.
I was very disappointed to find that I did not have ‘dynamic indicators’. Going for the SEL & specking the virtual Cockpit I was disappointed & puzzled to find only the rear indicators are dynamic. How weird !.
Let’s see if we can get a few more contributions from other members

I watched so many video road tests prior to making my final decision to select the Kamiq. Each of them praised the Amundson unit in the Kamiq, claiming it was excellent and intuitive for use. Well if this an intuitive system then maybe I'm just thick. There are several things which do not make any sense, such lane assist, stop/start being active by default and need to be manually disabled each time the car is started. You also mentioned that your MB displayed when the stop/start became active. That would have nice on my previous Nissan as the stop/start had a mind of it's own. providing the car was up to temp it would perform as expected, then restart after about 15 -30 seconds ... not the most eco friendly system. I've taken to turning the Stop/start off as it's timing is sometimes impractical. Check out your PM
