Re: Introduction chrisO2019

Thanks for the comments on the XC40 and the sunroof. I’ve never seen the point of a sunroof. If my FE hadn’t come with it fitted as standard I certainly wouldn’t have spent money on having it as an option. Why would I want the sun beating down on my bald head or reflecting off the instruments and f...

Re: Wireless Charging Woes

It sounds like you’re using a standard Qi charger, rather than Volvo’s built in one? If so, have you tried it in the house? Haven't received the standard Qi charger yet... it's still in transit. I'll update when I receive it. Sounds like your you are spending a lot of time,effort and money on getti...

Re: Double-tap gearshift

My XC40 is the first automatic I have driven in over 40yrs of driving.
Wouldn't go back to manual now but it seems strange to me that it's not 2 taps forward to go forward and two taps back to go backwards...

I think I may have read that somewhere before too. It’s possibly meant to show up in the Car Functions screen, however I don’t have any option there.
If you have it fitted the option to enable/disable it will be on the functions screen. See attached photo.

Re: Spotlight opearation

Do you need to have the convenience pack for the fog lights to come on when cornering? I don’t have the pack, and can’t say I can see them coming on when cornering at slow speeds. I think it's one of the options in the settings menu which you have to tick/un-tick. Don't think you need the convenien...

Re: Volvo On Call App - Driving Journal

The journal only records the last 100 days. Bummer! The journal is pretty much a waste of time for me then. I was hoping to be able to monitor the cars performance right through my ownership. The equivalent Skoda app for my previous car had no such limitation plus it recorded much more detail of in...

Volvo On Call App - Driving Journal

Hi.
I’m trying to look at old records in the driving journal. I have been using it since the day I took delivery in October 2018 but the app will not let me select a start date any further back than 11 Nov 2018.

Anyone else have this problem?
