If you experience problems with connecting to the Internet

If the clock has been reset, e.g. after the current to the battery has been disconnected during a visit to a service workshop, you need to set it again before you can connect to the Internet.

In order to set the clock, select SettingsSystemDate and Time in the centre display's top view. Then adjust the time and date by tapping the arrows on the screen up or down.

If you use a Telenor SIM card that is included with the purchase of a new car, this is active for 3 months or until a data balance of 5 GB has been reached.

In the event of problems with the Internet connection, you can remove the SIM card and change the Internet source in the car. Contact your Volvo dealer if problems persist.
