Contact between the Volvo Cars app* and the car

The car's systems that have contact with the Volvo Cars app are programmed to close when the car is not used for a long period.

After a few days, the system is deactivated to save the battery. At which point, it is not possible to use certain app functions. The system will be fully available again as soon as the car has been started.


The system's services only work in areas where Volvo Assistance's partners have mobile coverage and where the technology permits.

Just as with mobile phones, atmospheric disturbances or sparse transmitter coverage may lead to connection being impossible, e.g. in sparsely populated areas.
