  • Can the maxi-dot show the phone names/numbers as shown on the infotainment screen

    My 2016 Skoda Scout has the Columbus Infotainment System.
    My phone is a Samsung Galaxy S8 Android.
    I want to know if I can set the cars centre maxi-dot unit to display the same list of details, ie, names & numbers of my contacts details as is shown on the Columbus Infotainment Screen.
    I won't use the info screen to search for a phone number while driving, because I don't like to stop concentrating on the road and look at the info screen and scroll thru the contact list.
    I don't need info about transferring any photo images.
    Just the names and phone numbers.
    Two years ago I had a very cheap 15 year old mobile. It was a bare-bones little Nokia C2-01 as part of a free mobile bundle deal.
    It paired up very easily with this Skoda Scout and I seem to remember the maxi-dot display had the same full list of my phone contacts details that was on the info screen.
    Because I'm not a very frequent car phone user it might be an incorrect memory.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    interesting.. .what happens when you press the buttons on the steering wheel? From the manual:

    "The screen of the unit is a so-called “touch screen” (touch-screen). Fields circledin colour on the screen are presently “active” and are operated by touching thescreen.Some of the functions of the navigation button can be operated using the steering wheel"
