There are a large number of computers in today's cars that control their various systems. And just like with other computers, their software should be updated from time to time.
At Volvo, we're constantly developing and improving the software for our cars. We simply want your Volvo to operate at the highest level possible.
Examples of functions or systems that can be optimised by a software update are:
- The climate control system – for example for the ideal adjustment of temperature and airflows, regardless of the conditions outside.
- Engine optimisation – for example adjustment of the fuel/air mixture for efficient combustion.
- Driver's information – adjustment of instruments for safe and accurate delivery of information.
- The car's central control unit is updated as well as the systems for passive safety.
