Škoda has concluded a cooperation agreement with Parkopedia.

As a result, Škoda drivers have access to real-time information on millions of parking spaces throughout Europe, which is displayed via the vehicle's navigation system or the Škoda Connect App.

Using the vehicle's navigation system or the Škoda Connect App, which can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store, the cheapest and closest parking options are displayed at the respective location or a selected address. In addition to the fees, it also shows whether the parking spaces are actually vacant, in real time, subject to availability.

The latest version of the Škoda Connect App or the navigation system can also provide route guidance directly to the selected parking space.

"We are constantly expanding our ŠKODA Connect service offers with the aim of making remote vehicle access and communication more convenient for our customers," said Škoda Connected Car projects coordinator, Jan Havlas.

"The partnership with Parkopedia is another important element of this. Parkopedia offers Škoda drivers the parking service and an integrative user experience via the Škoda Connect app and the vehicle's infotainment display."

Founded in 2007, Parkopedia provides detailed information on more than 70m parking spaces in 15,000 cities and 89 countries worldwide. These include multi-storey car parks as well as public and private parking facilities.
