Internet map

Updated 7/23/2018

Internet map is a function that enables Internet-based map display.

The system can calculate a suitable route and indicate the position of the car in relation to the route on the map. In the event of a deviation from the planned route the system automatically adjusts the route and still guides to the destination. In addition to normal map data, the map also shows traffic information and symbols for selected points of interest (POI).

Route calculation will cease to function in the event of poor coverage or poor signal strength in your Internet connection, and some map scales may also be missing depending on how much map data has been loaded.

Note

Data is transferred when using the internet (data traffic), which can have a cost.

Activation of data roaming can result in further charges.

Contact your network operator about the cost for data traffic.

Volvo offers a full-scale navigation system (Sensus Navigation) which uses hard disk-based maps, voice guidance, advanced route calculation taking into account traffic information, Internet search and the option of several waypoints. Contact your dealer to upgrade to Sensus Navigation. The Internet map is replaced during upgrading.

The Internet map provides road information which leads to a pre-selected destination. However, not all recommended route directions are reliable because situations can arise that lie outside the capacity and judgement of the system, such as sudden changes in weather, for example.

Warning

Observe the following.

  • Direct all your attention to the road and make sure that all your concentration is on driving.
  • Follow applicable traffic legislation and drive with good judgment.
  • Due to weather conditions or time of year affecting the road conditions, some recommendations may be less reliable.
