Hi I have a 2013 model under warranty.

How easy are these to install and does it invalidate my warranty - ie would in need removing at service?

Bit confused by different cabling options which would I need ?


Any advice appreciated -

What type of car do you have - is it an XC90?

Doesn't invalidate warranty as it doesn't effect any wiring. In fact they have been quite clever how they've designed this. As soon as it detects Volvo's diagnostic software (VIDA/DICE) the CFE unit goes to sleep. It then needs to be re-enabled using a couple of keypresses or the unit needs to be re-connected to a PC. Some information in here, cable types covered from post 61 onwards: http://www.volvoforums.org.uk/showthread.php?t=188051

The CFE can connect via the OBD port in the dash, or if you car is equipped via the AEM (I think I have that right).

Mine is connected via the OBD port and works really well.

Welcome! Sure, you can join. I believe it will plug straight into the OBD but to be sure you could mail team@volvotech.eu

I assume you have factory navigation too - if so I think there's an option to connect it to that too.

This is where we are at the moment:
  1. C320 - CFE - Happy to act as London / South East delivery hub
  2. 12345 - CFE
  3. Simon Jones: 1x CFE + 1x lead to connect video out from iMIV to RTI (exact part number to be confirmed) + 1x reversing camera lead (exact part number to be confirmed) - I can be delivery contact to cover south / south west if required.
  4. Curly59 - CFE
  5. Stu Smith. - CFE - I'm between Bristol and Bath, happy to collect from Simon in Salisbury.
  6. VivaLaVolvo - CFE I'll also be going for a RTI filter cable thingy to eliminate those annoying lines on the screen but that's not included in the discount. Hopefully it can be shipped for free though with the CFE - Happy to receive order for North West. Also travel around a bit so can potentially deliver or meet closer to others.

Great to see some additional interest from some other members in the thread above, please add your details once you've decided what you'd like to order.

Cheers

I've been in email talks with Volvotech re. camera kit and the following is the reply.

Hi Tim,



Yes, that would have been an option, but since today we’re out of MII’s ;-(

We’ll not supply them anymore since price difference vs an iMIV is too low for most people and they then choose an iMIV…

We WILL though make an offer for coming period , especially including camera ;-)

So please check again in a few days."

If you have potential camera kit orders in your group buy it may make sense to hold off ordering for a while.

I'll probably order direct as it will cost me more than the saving to pick up from somewhere upcountry, diesel and time etc.

Tim.

No problem, let me know if you change your mind. Posting within the UK may still save you a bit of cash

I had intended to keep this open until 8th Feb, however I may need to extend the time for people to register interest. We need to hit more units for this to secure the 5% discount to be more worthwhile.
