Sensus Connect has an upgraded user interface with several innovative functions such as cloud-based services integrated in the car, improved navigation with 3D maps and free map updates, a local search function and an option to remotely send destination instructions to the car (Send to Car).

You also have the option of selecting a 3G modem (Volvo On Call1) with a Wi-Fi hotspot for a better Internet connection. This means that you do not need to connect your phone, but by inserting a personal SIM card in the Volvo On Call modem the car will connect itself to the Internet automatically.

Web radio, streaming of music via Bluetooth and other entertainment services are possible. Several of the infotainment and navigation functions2 can be navigated using voice control.

Operate Sensus Connect

Volvo Sensus Connect combines and presents many functions in several of the car's systems on the centre console's screen. With the centre console buttons and controls or the steering wheel's right-hand keypad functions can be activated or deactivated and many different settings can be made.
