If you choose to start to use a new driver profile, data sharing needs to be activated for the connected services that shall be used by the profile. This even applies if you previously activated data sharing for connected services for other driver profiles.
Sometimes after a workshop visit or software update, some settings in your car may have been reset to their default settings. Since the data sharing settings are unique to each driver profile, data sharing must be reactivated individually for each profile.
When you buy a Volvo, the dealer can often provide assistance with settings in the car and go through the various setting options with you as customer. Among other things, this could mean that data sharing was already activated for connected services in the new car at the time of delivery.
If you then start to use a new driver profile, the data sharing settings for the new profile will be deactivated and need to be activated for the connected services that shall be used. This also applies to data sharing settings for downloaded apps.
Check which driver profile is being used
The data sharing settings may have a different appearance for different driver profiles in your car. For example, one profile may have data sharing activated for only one connected service, while another has the function activated for all services and downloaded apps.
If some apps or connected services do not seem to work properly in your car, for example if have been asked on a number of occasions to allow data sharing for certain functions, check which driver profile is active and for which services the profile has activated data sharing.
You can change driver profile under Profile in the top view in your centre display.
You can choose to activate data sharing at any time for the connected services you want available in a driver profile, but the changes will only be temporary if the settings of the profile have been protected and saved. This is because if a driver profile has been protected, all settings will be restored to the last saved value when the car is switched off and locked.
To save changes made in a protected driver profile, go toin your centre display and press to save changes for a profile at the bottom of the screen.
