Media Bluetooth®

The car's media player is equipped with Bluetooth® and can wirelessly play streaming audio files from external devices with Bluetooth®, such as mobile phones and PDAs.

The device must first be registered and connected to the car.

For basic playback and navigation, read how the system is operated and menu navigation . See below for a more detailed description.

It is possible to link certain functions to the FAV button. A linked function is then activated simply by pressing the FAV button, see Favourites.

Playback and navigation

Navigation and control of the audio can be carried out via the centre console buttons or via the steering wheel keypad. In some external devices it is also possible to change tracks from the device.

When a mobile phone is connected to the car it is also possible to remotely control a selection of the mobile phone's functions, see Bluetooth® handsfree phone. Change between the main sources TEL and MEDIA to manage each one's functions.


The Bluetooth® media player must support the Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) and Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). The player should use AVRCP version 1.3, A2DP 1.2. Otherwise some functions may not work.

Not all mobile phones and external media players available in the market are fully compatible with the Bluetooth® function in the car's media player. Volvo recommends that you contact an authorised Volvo dealer for information on compatible phones and external media players.


The car's media player can only play the audio files via the Bluetooth® function.
