If you choose to begin using a new driver profile, data sharing will be activated for the connected services that will be used by the profile. This even applies if you previously activated data sharing for connected services for other driver profiles.
Sometimes after a workshop visit or software update, some settings in your vehicle may have been reset to their default settings. Since the data sharing settings are unique for each driver profile, data sharing must be reactivated individually for each profile.
When you buy a Volvo, the dealer can often provide assistance with settings in the vehicle and go through the various setting options with you. Among other things, this could mean that data sharing was already activated for connected services in the new car at the time of delivery.
If you then begin using a new driver profile, the data sharing settings for the new profile will be deactivated and must then be activated for the connected services you want to use. This also applies to data sharing settings for downloaded apps.
Checking which driver profile is in use
The data sharing settings may look different for different driver profiles in your vehicle. For example, one profile may have data sharing activated for only one service, while another has activated the function for all services and downloaded apps.
If some apps or connected services do not seem to work properly in your vehicle, for example if you have been asked on a number of occasions to allow data sharing for certain functions, check which driver profile is active and for which services the profile has activated data sharing.
You can change driver profile under Profile in the top view in your center display.
You can choose to activate data sharing for the connected services you want to be able to use in a driver profile, but the changes will only be temporary if the settings of the profile have been protected and saved. This is because if a driver profile has been protected, all settings will be restored to the last saved value when the vehicle is switched off and locked.
To save changes made in a protected driver profile, go toin your center display and tap to save changes for a profile at the bottom of the screen.
