Connected Safety communicates information between your own car and other vehicles via the Internet* . The function is intended to make a driver aware that there may be a potentially dangerous traffic situation further ahead on the same road.
The app view contains applications (apps) that give access to certain of the car's services.
User terms and conditions and data sharing
The first time certain services and apps are started, a pop-up window with the headings Terms and conditions and Data sharing may be shown.
Activating and deactivating data sharing
Data sharing for services and apps required can be set in the centre display's settings menu.
Data sharing for Volvo On Call
Data sharing for the Volvo On Call service is activated as standard. This means that you do not need to activate data sharing for this service yourself when you buy a new car or after e.g. a factory reset.
Data sharing for driver profile
When you start to use a new driver profile, the data sharing settings for the profile will be set to the car's standard settings and deactivated.
Data sharing for services
If you have not activated data sharing for an online service or for downloaded apps, you can do this in connection with starting them in your centre display. If this is the first time you are starting a service, or e.g. after a factory reset or certain software updates, you also need to approve Volvo's terms and conditions for online services.
Volvo ID is a personal ID that gives access to a wide range of services via a single username and password.
Creating a Volvo ID
It is possible to create a Volvo ID in different ways. If the Volvo ID is created at volvoid.eu.volvocars.comm/Account or with the Volvo Cars app, the Volvo ID must also be registered to the car in order to enable use of the various Volvo ID services.
Real Time Traffic Information
When the car is connected to the Internet, the driver can access extended traffic information (RTTI* ) concerning congestion, closed roads and anything else that may affect the travelling time.
Volvo On Call*
Volvo On Call* provides direct contact to the car as well as extra comfort and assistance 24 hours a day.
