Updated 9/17/2019

Importing POI files

Many companies offer so-called POI (Point Of Interest) files for download. With these files, in some cases, it is possible to supplement Volvo maps with information such as speed cameras, camp sites etc. POI files of GPX format work best with the Sensus RTI system, but can sometimes also be imported to models with Sensus Navigation.

Since POI files are offered by several different manufacturers, Volvo cannot guarantee that they always work faultlessly with Volvo's navigation system. When importing POI files to Sensus Navigation, you may experience that certain information is not included.
