Specify destination with Send to Car

A destination can be specified in different ways - using the Send to Car function one of them.

Send position to the car

Send to Car is a function that makes it possible to add a destination/position to the car's navigation system* via a computer.

Send to Car can also be used from the app, Volvo On Call. Volvo On Call* can also be used if a destination/position needs to be sent to the car from a Volvo On Call service centre.

Note that this process is only one example from one of several map service suppliers.
Go to wego.here.com on the computer.
A map service is opened.
Search for desired position.
Right-click on the position and then click on the address.
A side menu/information card is opened.
Click on Share in the side menu.
Click on Send to car in the side menu.
Select the car and enter the car's VIN number or the e-mail address that is registered to your Volvo ID. Then click on Send.
Click on Done.
The position is sent to the car.

More information about several suppliers and the Send to Car function is available on the Volvo Cars support page (support.volvocars.com).

Receiving and using a position in the car

For the car to be able to receive data it must be connected to the Internet. If the position is sent to the car with Volvo On Call* then the car's built-in modem is used to receive the data, i.e. no separate Internet connection is required.
When a position has been received by the car a notification is shown in the centre display. Tap on the notification/symbol.
An information card is opened.
Select the desired use of the position.

Using a saved position

Positions received are saved to the navigation system's library and can be used later.
