"Sensus Navigation" is a navigation system that is fully integrated into the vehicle. Connect to the Internet with a separate SIM card via Volvo on Call, or via Bluetooth or WiFi from your mobile phone. The Internet connection gives you a greater navigation experience.

Select your desired final destination using quick and easy voice control, "one shot destination", the touch screen or buttons on the steering wheel. The Internet connection also makes it possible to find destinations and send them to the vehicle from a mobile phone or computer. It is also possible to set a destination using the address data found in the mobile phone's phonebook. A voice gives you driving instructions well in advance of each new direction, while receiving additional information via the screens, commonly called turn-by-turn guidance. Driving instructions are also displayed in the dashboard and in the head-up display if available. The system is also equipped with on-screen menu shortcuts for the most frequently used functions. Your home address is stored separately and is always readily available.

Points of interest (POI) can be displayed for different categories. They can include everything from shopping centers to campsites and hotels. The system displays the next three exits and which POI categories are represented near each exit. An Internet connection also allows you to use information from the Internet and save as POIs in the navigation system. This can be done using your smartphone, computer or directly in the car.

Traffic information is continuously received from the Internet. You can get suggestions on alternative routes to avoid roadwork, accidents or other traffic related incidents. The information is read aloud to reduce the risk of taking attention away from driving.

With "Sensus Navigation" you can see selected 3D-images of buildings and landmarks on the map to more easily recognize them in reality.

"EcoRoute" is a "green" function that helps you choose a fuel-efficient route in combination with a good driving style to reduce fuel consumption. When you select "EcoRoute," a fuel-efficient route is calculated based on speed limits and acceleration data for the specified route.

"Lifetime map update" gives you updated maps at no extra charge.1 The updated maps are downloaded from http://support.volvocars.com. Entire regions and parts of entire regions are downloaded from this web portal. Smaller updates of already downloaded regions are downloaded wirelessly in the vehicle.
