Realised that the AAOS (and Volvo design) is somewhat finicky when it comes to playing music from a hard drive.

AudioWagon app downloaded - great

Wrong format of the SSD, so now having to reformat the 1TB SSD to FAT32 and reload all the music files

Volvo are archaic at times with their software and application design

Not sure if this was already covered....
Just found that in eco mode-stop start is always available (regardless of battery state) and in Polestar mode- stop start is automatically off! Or at least on mine!
Always go through car washes with the engine running because I couldn't turn the engine off in neutral.......Oh yes you can. Selecting neutral and then long press the start/stop button and away you go. Why make it so complicated? 🤪

Why put it in neutral? Just press stop from drive, you go into park.

He doesn’t want it to go into park because I guess it’s a car wash that pulls the car through.

Ah, Never seen or experienced one if them! All the ones I've ever used you are parked and it comes over and around you.

Yes it is a faf the odd occasion I've put it in neutral by mistake and the switch off and auto parking doesn't work the same.

Exactly that! IMO car washes work like a conveyor belt, car wash stays in place and rolls car through on belted slots. Always need to put the car in neutral, so I just went through with the engine running. Now I'm free! 🤭
Does anyone know why they put the little sleeve over the rear wiper? Can't be to keep it dry 🤣.

Stops the roller brush flicking up the wiper and snapping it off.

Makes sense. Thank you. Although it could just as easily do it anyway. I usually run around for a few days with it flapping in the breeze. 🤣
