Re: XC40 facelift coming?

Seems to me the Volvo implementation of Android Automotive is a work in progress. Using the customer for beta testing, and relying on their enthusiasm is not the best approach.

Re: Could you drive it into a brick wall?

That situation where the car doesn't fully brake when a person passes in front...it makes me very doubtful...the test assumes that the person calmly continues forward, when normally he gets scared and can go back...or else he runs in front, what a great option! :) All other systems, yes, seem effect...

I have the maps updated and the system recognizes the traffic signs, but for some reason it understands that the image signs are speed limit when they are informative.

Re: Speed Sign Assist

Yes this is normal behaviour but you can turn the option off in the settings (it's in the manual somewhere).
