Re: Spare wheel retro-fit

Interesting, I placed the order for my spare about 2 months ago and still no sign. I’ve got the car booked in for the 3 month check this week so I’ll chase up the dealer to find out why this hasn’t arrived yet.

Re: Apple CarPlay

I have CarPlay and find it much easier to get navigation directions by voice through ‘hey siri’ Than talking to the default sat nav system. However the biggest plus for me that makes it worthwhile is the WhatsApp integration. Get whatsapp messages read out and the ability to dictate and send is wort...

Re: Double-tap gearshift

Interesting, I remember those comments from YouTube videos before I bought my car. I really couldn’t understand the issue then and since owning the car understand them even less, there really is no problem or delay in ‘double tapping’ to select the required gear. I’m lying in bed at the moment, but ...

Re: Sensus Screen Protector

I haven’t put on a screen protector and had no intention of getting one. Then I had a conversation in passing with the sales rep who sold me the car. He was telling me about one of his clients who had an XC60 and had to pay to have a new unit installed he said it was over £1,400 and this was because...

Re: Inside lights

Wow, I’m truly shocked at Volvo skimming on this. I would just assume lighting would be present. I’m struggling to recall the last car I owned that didn’t have lights for the benefit of rear passengers. They really have a funny slant on the lighting thing. I have the inscription pro and was attracte...

Re: Spare wheel retro-fit

Pete,
Of course I’ll update you when it arrives. When I placed the order the garage were unable to provide an estimate of how long it would take to get here. I’m hoping it’s quicker that the time it’s taking for the average car to arrive!

Re: Spare wheel retro-fit

Pete, I also overlooked this when I ordered my car. I visited my dealer yesterday to order the space saver wheel. They have ordered the wheel, the jack and brace and the secondary floor cover as I currently have the moulded under floor tray. This won’t work with the space saver so I will have the fl...

Re: Dash cam - factory fitted

I just removed the storage card from my system to look at/play with the recordings. 1st time since the thing was fitted. I should say here that I’ve never had a dashcam before so have nothing really to compare quality with. However because of where the camera is installed the view I now realise is r...

Re: Dash cam - factory fitted

Not heard this before. I doubt that it would work on the fitted cameras only however as these would be too low down to effectively capture views unobstructed. I asked my dealer and they recommended the Roadhawk product which I had them fit. However I regret this now a touch as this system only recor...
