When your phone/media device has been paired and selected, its name will be shown on the Sensus Infotainment screen and the device can be controlled from the car.

This procedure only has to be performed once. Your Volvo will then attempt to connect automatically to your device when it is within range of the system, as long as Bluetooth® is enabled.

If your cell phone's operating system is updating, it may interrupt the connection between the telephone and vehicle. If this happens, delete the telephone from the list of paired telephones (see Remove a Bluetooth device from your Volvo) and repeat the pairing procedure described in this article.
