Alpine: new infotainment system for skoda octavia

Alpine: new infotainment system for skoda octavia

Munich, 27. September 2016 – the abolition of the DIN slot has been making itself unpleasantly felt for a few years: previously, it was a few moves and the new used car was up to date in the field of infotainment. Although already at the time of the unit shaft almost every new car had a factory radio, so the manufacturers could not complain about lack of revenue from this area, this standard was abolished – in favor of proprietary solutions. Almost every manufacturer has now for each model its own forms and its own way to integrate the audio system into its BUS system. This makes retrofitting enormously more difficult.

But something is happening, at least for mass models like the current skoda octavia. For them there are aftermarket solutions of different price ranges. New on the market is a comparatively expensive from alpine called X901D-OC3, which is made specifically for the octavia 3. With a list price of 1499 euros, it competes with skoda’s most expensive factory system, but can do a bit more. Thus the display with nine is even one inch coarser than the factory model. Videos can be played – the system can be used for CD player. In addition, there is digital radio (DAB+), HDMI, USB and rear camera connections.

A full map update for europe costs 89.95 euros and as a 1-year subscription 119.95 euros. A lot of money when you consider that the here app can be updated for free.

Cold agent dispute: honeywell criticizes kba tests

In the dispute over the r1234yf refrigerant, U.S. Manufacturer honeywell is sharply attacking the german federal motor transport authority (KBA), accusing the agency of rigged tests. This emerges from a letter from honeywell manager kenneth gayer to KBA head ekhard zinke, which was made available to the financial news agency dpa-AFX on thursday. In the letter dated 21. August, the company criticizes the authorities for testing the coolant under unusual conditions. In one of these tests, the substance had recently caught fire, as it had at the carmaker daimler.

The suspicion arose that the tests "were developed and conducted with an expected result in mind, and were adjusted in the course of the test series until the desired result was finally achieved," the honeywell manager writes. In initial crash tests and subsequent trials, the coolant had not ignited. This only happened when the testers specifically streamed out the agent. This was to simulate what consequences, for example, a more violent impact could have. A KBA spokesman did not initially want to comment on the honeywell letter.

The U.S. Manufacturer continues to criticize that the preliminary results cast a false light on the safety of the cold agent. The KBA had published the results two weeks ago and also sent them to the EU commission in brussels. The authorities had stated that they did not see any serious danger within the framework of the product safety law and therefore did not initiate a recall.
