Driving journal with the Volvo Cars app

The Volvo Cars app can automatically create a drive log which allows you to view a summary of your car journeys. The data is visible from all the accounts that are connected to the car.

Registration of travel information

Travel information is sent to the Volvo Cars app between 30 seconds and one minute after the car key has been removed. If you restart the engine within this time to drive on, the journey in progress before the engine was switched off continues. In case of longer stops, e.g. refuelling at a petrol station, two trips will be logged. You have the option of merging multiple journeys into one via the app, see Using the driving journal with the Volvo Cars app.

The travel information can be downloaded and saved in Excel, a useful function if, for example, you have a company car, see Using the driving journal with the Volvo Cars app.
