Re: Wireless Charging Woes

USB wireless charging pad arrived in the mail yesterday. The Qi receiver in my original post works just fine. No sparking, no interruption. Looks like there's something wrong with the car's wireless charging pad then.

Re: Individual Drive Mode Questions

On the dials in dynamic mode, you lose the READY symbol as it disables start/stop. Not true. Just tried it earlier this evening. READY symbol came on as soon as I hit the Start/Stop button on the centre screen. Just to be clear, I'm talking about the 'Driver Display' setting in Individual Drive Mod...

Re: Individual Drive Mode Questions

One more question to add to this. What's the difference between 'Comfort' and 'Dynamic' dials? They look identical. The 'Eco' one though looks quite different.

Re: Wireless Charging Woes

Sounds like your you are spending a lot of time,effort and money on getting a gadget to work that you don’t really need. I assume the QI USB plastic bag thingy plugs into your phone’s power socket and charges it by induction between the car’s charger pad and the coil in the bag?. If so then any adv...

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.

Re: Wireless Charging Woes

followed by a faint sparking noise That doesn’t sound good. Can’t see that here’d be anything between car & charger that could cause an effect like that, it’s all electromagnetic, so I’d be very wary of the connection between charger and phone. You don’t want to be frying hundreds of £$ of phone fo...

Tyre Pressure

The manual recommends a tyre pressure of either 230 KPa or 260 KPa depending on the load as long as your speed doesn't exceed 0.625 hrs/100Km. Surprisingly, I find that the 260 KPa ride is smoother than the 230 one. Anyone else experienced this? Also, the manual says the recommended pressures are fo...
