If you hold down the button in the roof for at least 2 seconds, verbal contact will be established between Volvo Assistance and the driver. The aim of this is to agree on what assistance is required. If data sharing for the roof buttons is activated, a message about the car's position is sent to Volvo Assistance.
The SOS button must only be used in the event of accident, illness or an external threat against the car and its passengers. The SOS function is only intended for emergency situations. Abuse may lead to supplementary charges.
You can use the button for other assistance, e.g. questions on the use of the car or if you need roadside assistance.
