MapCareTM is a map update service for Volvo cars equipped with Sensus Navigation. Maps are updated in two steps. First, the map is downloaded to a USB memory and then the map is loaded from the USB memory to the car. Instructions for these steps are described in this article.
The map must be downloaded to an empty USB memory (32GB) with FAT32 formatting. If you do not have a USB memory to hand, you can download the map to another location. You then need to copy all the files to an empty USB memory later on.
Map downloads are carried out using a program that is installed on your computer. This program helps you to download the large map file and allows you to interrupt the download and resume it later.
By selecting your car and model year under the ”cars” menu option, you will access information for that car. Under the tab for software and downloads, you will find current updates related to your particular navigation system. Click on the update you want to carry out and then follow the instructions below.
Please note the following:
Click on "Download for Mac" or "Download for Windows" for the selected area.
Select "Run" to install the map download program.
Click on "New download" to download the map to a USB memory or to the computer's hard disk drive.
You can verify that the download/copying to the USB memory has worked correctly before you install the map in the car by pressing on "Check download" in the map download program.
Take the USB memory with the downloaded map on to your car and switch on the infotainment system.
Insert the USB memory in the USB port.
The position of this port may vary depending on the car model.
The map update is initiated automatically. The infotainment system notifies you of the time for the update and asks you to confirm that you want to continue.
Press OK/MENU. The map update begins and a ”progress bar” is shown.
Map update in progress.
Remove the USB memory when the update is complete.
If there are any problems with the map update, contact your customer support or Volvo dealer.
During the download, it is not advisable to use the mobile connection via mobile devices/phones, or in situations where the subscription used may have a monthly download limit for the amount of GB.
