For cars of model year 2014 and later, you have the option of free map updates online (Life Time MapCareTM), see Map download for Sensus Navigation. The updates can be done once or twice a year (depending on region) as long as the system is in production. You can also access the map updates via your Volvo dealer.
Map updates online
To update and download maps online, a number of criteria have to be met:
- Access to a USB memory stick with sufficient space to execute the update in the car. The largest map requires a USB stick with memory of 32 GB.
- Time to download the map to the car (approx. 1½ hours).
- You do not have to be driving your car while you execute the update, but the ignition has to be on. If you are not driving, battery support is recommended.
Get started with map updates online
Maps are updated in two steps. First, the map is downloaded to a USB memory stick and then the map is loaded from the USB memory stick to the car. To get started, see Map download for Sensus Navigation.
Map updates in the workshop
Your Volvo dealer can help you with updating and downloading maps. Map updates are free, but the dealer may charge for the workshop time required to install the maps.
You can always contact your Volvo dealer if you have any problems with downloading maps online.
