Apple CarPlay*

Updated 7/23/2018

Apple CarPlay gives you the option to listen to music, make phone calls, get directions, send/receive messages and use Siri, all while you stay focused on your driving. Apple CarPlay works with selected Apple devices.

If the car is not already equipped with Apple CarPlay then it is possible to install it, contact a en Volvo dealer.

Information about which apps are supported and which phones are compatible is available on Apple's website: www.apple.com/ios/carplay/. Note! Volvo does not check the content in the Apple CarPlay app.

Note

If a phone or media player is connected to the car via Bluetooth then it will not be available while Apple CarPlay is active due to Bluetooth being deactivated. To connect the car, use Wi-Fi or the car's built-in modem*.

When using map navigation via Apple CarPlay there is no guidance in the driver display or Head-up display, but only in the centre display.

The Apple CarPlay apps can be voice-controlled using Siri or controlled using the centre display as well as the phone. Certain functions can also be controlled using the steering wheel's right-hand keypad. A long press on the steering wheel button starts voice recognition control using Siri and a short press deactivates.
