My app has never shown the route, just start and finish. So I've just been going through the app settings and under the App Version (5.15.0) it has a Home Screen option to "switch back to previous design". If I click on that it informs me that if I switch back to previous design, I won't have access to the new design again until it is officially released.

Can any one enlighten me on what that's all about?

“Switch back to previous design” will show the app home page similar to the car’s central display with 4 widgets (parking climate, remote start, doors-locks, fuel range) and on top the map with the car’s location. The new design has a simplified app home page with the image of the car and icons.

Once you “Switch back to previous design” there’s no option in the app to switch to new design. “No more access to the new design until it is officially released” means you’ve been given early access to a beta feature. But you can actually get access again to the new design by deleting the app and reinstalling it.

My app is now recording (at 15100 miles) that I have an average of 5.9mpg and 60mph. Suspect an error somewhere!

It’s highly unlikely to have such a huge fuel consumption at 60mph average speed, so probably it’s an error in the app.

Driver display is showing two trip meters, TA and TM. In the app, performance data for average fuel consumption and average speed is calculated from TM. Is the app showing you 15100 miles for Odometer or TM? If you see 15100 miles for Odometer I would suspect an automatic TM data reset at 15000 miles. Or maybe you inadvertently did a TM data reset by long pressing the RESET button on the left-hand stalk switch.

Check your units! I had this and the settings on the app were miles per LITRE (although the display says MPG)

Not done any reset and its the odometer reading 15100 on the app. According to the in car display my average mpg is 46.7 since last reset (which I think was around 2000 miles). Just returned from a long run to Cornwall and it was showing 53mpg which is pretty decent.

My journeys from 1st June, which had never previously shown on the log, miraculously appeared this morning. They weren't there when I last looked, on Wednesday (8th June). I assume that Volvo have belatedly restored the missing data on their server.

When the app updates, it looks at your phone's location, and chooses "UK" - which is Miles MPH and LITRES! Switch to Imperial... Or leave it as is and carry on complaining.
