System updates are handled via the Remote update service app in the centre display's application view. A tap on the button starts a download application in the home view's bottom subview. If no search for available updates has been performed since the last time the infotainment system was started, a search is performed. No search is performed if a software installation is in progress. An icon in the download application's button System updates shows how many updates are available. A tap on the button shows a list of updates that can be installed in the car. For more information and answers to common questions regarding function and to download certain system updates, go in to support.volvocars.com.
In order for system updates to be possible, the car must be online.
Background searching for software updates is activated when the car is supplied from the factory.
Data download may affect other services that transmit data, e.g. Internet radio. If the effect on other services is experienced as disruptive then the download can be interrupted. Alternatively, it may be appropriate to switch off or interrupt other services.
An update can be interrupted when the ignition is switched off and the car is left.
However, the update does not have to be completed before the car is left, this is because the update is resumed the next time the car is used.
