Using Volvo On Call*

The Volvo On Call (VOC) system is activated by pushing on either of the two buttons in the roof, or by making a selection in the centre display. Addition settings can also be set in the centre display.

VOC is automatically started when the car's safety system is triggered, e.g. in an accident in which the activation level is reached for the seatbelt tensioners or airbags. Contact is made between the car and VOC service centre, which will send appropriate assistance to the car's position.

An active service is shown by a symbol in the centre display.
