and charge the phone, one the the cubby hole in front of the gear lever and the other in the compartment under the centre armrest. The other way is to configure the Infotainment system as a Wireless LAN (WLAN) client to a smart phone which has been configured as a WiFi hotspot - that is, using tethering.
I regard the built-in display as very dangerous because I have to look down and take my eyes completely off the road. but seriously, put the sim into the thingy and turned it on, opened laptop in car and logged on as you would in a strangers house, and hay presto- the dongle had its passcode on the dongle itself.
Just entered my lastest of 4 or 5 pins that had been reissued in the past and it worked straight away took all of 1 min to do and no more resetting radios, Bluetooth, time, internet account and so on !

May as well connect your device to that rather then piggyback the system in the car - or am I missing something.Considering that the antenna for these frequencies is tiny I can't see how the vehicle body would make any difference, I think you would find that any MiFi unit would work just as well and give you 4G, albeit without any integration. It appears to me that Skoda dealers are charging Skoda 1 1/2 hours labour on warranty for a 1 min reset job.
