Sensus Connected Touch

Sensus Connected Touch turns your car’s 7" screen into a media control panel, with touchscreen functions and access to the Internet connection and a range of app functions. This article describes Sensus Connected Touch and its functionality.

Sensus Connected Touch

Sensus Connected Touch is an aftermarket product which can be selected for cars equipped with High Performance and a 5" screen. It is possible in these cars to upgrade the in-car screen to 7" with the Sensus Connected Touch accessory.

Using Sensus Connected Touch

Sensus Connected Touch allows you to use online navigation, surf the Internet and listen to music from Spotify, TuneIn radio and Deezer. Simply connect your 3G/4G dongle to Sensus Connected Touch or use your mobile phone's Internet connection (Connect to the Internet with Sensus Connected Touch).

Operating

As well as being able to control the system using the touchscreen, you can control it using the steering wheel controls or the centre console, or using voice commands. You can use the touchscreen to easily access a range of functions such as a browser, online navigation (iGo and Sensus Connected Touch), Internet radio, music services, e-mail and lots more besides. For more information on operation, see Operate Sensus Connected Touch.

Touchscreen

The touchscreen functionality supplied with Sensus Connected Touch works only in Sensus Connected Touch mode and for associated functions.

Sensus Connected Touch and Volvo On Call

Sensus Connected Touch has no link with Volvo On Call and you can use both systems at the same time.

Use functions while you drive

When you reach a certain speed (the limit varies depending on market), some of the apps in the system will be deactivated automatically for safety reasons. This applies to apps which can show moving images/video, e.g. Gallery, browser, calendar and e-mail. The apps which will not work while you are driving are indicated by a watermark icon in the menu.

Reactivate apps

Deactivated apps are reactivated when the car is stationary. The definition of stationary varies depending on the market. On some markets the limit for stationary is around 6.5 km/h (4 mph), on others 0 km/h (0 mph). Note that this is not affected by whether the parking brake is engaged.

Data traffic

A SIM card or modem is not included in Sensus Connected Touch. All Internet data is transmitted via your mobile phone or a 3G/4G dongle connected to Sensus Connected Touch via USB.

Costs

Data traffic costs are determined by your data traffic agreement. Note that data traffic roaming when driving in other countries may be expensive. For more information, contact your data traffic operator.
