Three SIM (Internet with Legs) arrived. Popped it into the holder (not a mini-SIM as the manual says, but a full size one) started the car, enabled internet and all was well with the world. Couldn't be easier. Thank you to all who recommended the Three SIM.
Cheers,
Ron

I rang the 3 helpline from phone (onEE) and a very helpful operator registered/activated mine for me.

If you don't mind me asking, what do you use that sim card for?
I so far can imaging it is needed for the traffic updates and Volvo on Call, but may be there is something else as well?

Map updates, TuneIn Radio App, Spotify App (if you have premium account), using the car SIM data rather than phone SIM for anything else e.g. streaming music, also Android Auto, Apple Car play.
Passengers in car can use the data as well on their phones or tablets or laptops.

Updates, Google Local Search, Live Traffic. I'm still learning so I'm sure there's much more that I can use it for.
