Re: Software update experiences

Sounds like the navigation settings might have reset or something. Navigation volume can be changed, the map being "askew" sounds like it being in north-facing mode rather than (car) forward facing mode - tap on the compass looking icon in the top right to change that. Hi Gears, I will try doing as...

Was any SW update recently?
Yes there was, it was updated at the dealership when I took the car in for a different reason.

Travelling from Manchester to London on Monday the Navigation volume was faint, Ron point the where I had to listen really hard to hear any turn by turn instructions, causing me some levels of anxiety on such a long journey (first...

Re: 3 Year Service Plan

Hi We opted for the 5 year plan. Only took about 5 days for confirmation email to come through. Thanks Dermottdog. Picked our XC 40 up on 22 November 2019, and just checked with Volvo, and it has no service plan registered to it!! Mind still waiting for the sim to be sent. Volvo Executive Office to...

Re: Phone number of SIM in boot

Momentum Pro D3, didn’t find a SIM in mine, it was empty, so got a 2GB SIM from EE to try but haven’t done so yet.
Funny and unfair if some models come complete with a SIM

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

Number6 are you sure the tailgate button does nothing? You do need to hold it in for a few seconds before it activates. I thought the button was specifically for opening the tailgate when you DON'T have auto opening. Checked, the button does nothing. I'm thinking How can it, my tailgate doesn't hav...

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

I've just looked at the manual as I have two keys for my glovebox, which does lock. In the manual the lock is down as an optional extra for some specs. That will explain why Blue Velvets may not have a key. Ha! You got my keys Paulinyork...ha ha ha! There appears to be some mixing and matching goin...

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

Well yesterday I changed lanes from being behind a van into a lane that was stationary. I had plenty of time to slow down sensibly as in not slamming the brakes on. the car did not agree, and like a constricting anaconda, the seat belts for both front passengers were pulled in tight. A motor actual...

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

Momentum Pro D3: You can cool your drinks in the glove compartment. The dealership didn’t even know that. Strangely, it isn’t lockable - misplaced priorities! My glove compartment is lockable......I have a separate key for it.. At Alanplum, yours is top of the range, whilst mine is at the bottom of...
