I got it working at the end with my Skoda Superb iV, but only after creating a new Skoda account. The AC just couldn't be turned on, while other functions worked. The application and infrastructure behind has too many bugs, insufficient or misleading info if something fails. E.g., the 15 request limit, which I only know from the Home Assistant integration. Also the UI could be more intuitive, with proper explanation of features, especially at AC control. Sync between car and app could be faster.

Generally good concept, unfortunately slow data refresh and buggy app ... car and servers communication unreliable, car parking position almost never correct or unavailable, and around new year everything resetted for some reason. Skoda vehicles in my opinion are the best for the money, extremely reliable and safe ... experience from owning 3 new cars all RS, now Kodiaq RS ... enjoying fully :)

Update: APRIL 2024. I've just updated the app as the previous version stopped showing data. Now it no longer shows percentage charge, just range. Range is a pretty useless metric, in isolation because it's basically a guesstimate based upon current driving conditions or last journey. Since owning our Citigo I've kept a driver's log showing % of charge used for various trips. It's been very useful, especially on infrequent long distance trips. Now I cannot use this data. Pls bring back % charge!!
