Sensus Connect is Volvo's infotainment system that can connect your Volvo to the outside world and provide you with information, entertainment and functions to help simplify your ownership.
Sensus Connect functionality
Sensus Connect has a user interface with several innovative functions such as cloud-based services integrated in the car, improved navigation with 3D maps and free map updates, a local search function and an option to remotely send destination instructions to the car (Send to Car).
With Sensus Connect, the car is equipped with three different displays to give you the right information at the right time and at the right place, without being a distraction.
You also have the option of selecting a car modem (Volvo on CallOnly applies to Volvo On Call markets.) with a Wi-Fi hotspot for a better Internet connection. This means that you do not need to connect your phone, but by inserting a personal SIM card in the Volvo On Call modem the car will connect itself to the Internet automatically.
Web radio, streaming of music via Bluetooth and other entertainment services are possible. Several of the infotainment and navigation functions can be navigated using voice recognition.

Sensus Connect combines and presents many features in several of the car's systems on the different displays. The centre display is a touch screen that responds to the touch, you can operate the screen even if wearing gloves. Via the centre display, you can customise where and how the information is displayed. The centre display contains a function view with touch buttons for the various systems and functions of the car. Here you can activate or deactivate functions as well as see notices regarding the functionality for different functions.
