Finding your vehicle using the Volvo Cars app

In the Volvo Cars app, you can see the position of your vehicle on a map. The map also shows your own position, i.e. the position of your mobile device. You can use the app to give commands to the vehicle to sound the horn and/or flash the lights so that it is easier to find.


Available functions in the Volvo Cars app can vary depending on vehicle model, model year and region. Available functions may also vary over time.

Find vehicle with the Lights and Horn function

You can see your position and the position of the vehicle in the Px-2037-VOC app icon Map tab. If you need to find the vehicle in e.g. a large parking lot, you can use the following:

  • Lights for flashing
  • Lights and Horn to both honk the horn and flash the lights

This activates the vehicle's horn and/or hazard warning lights for a couple of seconds. The function works within a radius of approximately 500 meters from the vehicle1.

Limitations to finding vehicle with the Volvo Cars app

If the Volvo Cars app does not show the vehicle's exact position, it may be due to the following:

  • The present position of the vehicle has poor or no GPS visibility, e.g. in a covered parking lot. In such cases, the latest position received is used as the approximate position.
  • The vehicle could not transmit data to Volvo On Call's servers when you last parked it. The position is sent to your Volvo every time you park your vehicle. If the vehicle has no mobile coverage then the latest position has not been registered - so it is not visible in the app either. This can occur if the vehicle is parked in, e.g., a garage with poor mobile coverage.
  • Volvo On Call uses GPS technology to locate the vehicle. The GPS coordinates are translated into addresses which are easy to understand, e.g. street names, which is why it might look as if your vehicle is parked on a street in the local area if, for example, it is parked in a nearby parking garage without GPS coverage.
  • The vehicle's position is not shown when the vehicle is not in use.
  • If the vehicle shows an incorrect position on the map, a simpler calibration can take place by locking the vehicle and remaining stationary for 15-30 seconds. If this does not help, visit an authorized Volvo workshop to have the antenna unit checked/calibrated.
