Sensus Navigation*

Basic description and overview of Sensus Navigation.

The navigation system calculates the route, travel time and distance to the selected destination. The system gives guidance and instructions for junctions, etc. If there is a deviation from the planned route outline during the journey then the system automatically calculates a new route outline.

The navigation system can be used without a destination being selected.

The system is supplied with default settings, but starts with the settings last used.

Volvo Sensus Navigation uses reference system WGS84, which gives longitude and latitude positions.

Points to remember

The navigation system provides road information which guides to a preset destination. However, not all of the recommended guidance is always reliable, since situations may arise that lie outside the capacity and judgement of the navigation system, such as sudden changes in the weather.


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.
