Default Windows 10 not recognising Volvotech special CFE cable

Hi guys,

Has anyone else had any problems getting their pc to recognise their CFE updater USB cable. As you'll know the USB cable comes in two parts.

Part A: a fairly standard USB that connect one end to your PC's USB socket

Part B: This is s special Volvotech lead (with a red LED light) which at one end connects into the above USB lead and at the other you connect the CFE device.

There seems to be an issue with Part B as whenever I connect this lead the computers says it doesn't recognise it so it won't work properly. (See photo screenshot) I'm using Windows 10 but bob at Volvotech did say it should work fine with Windows 10. I've checked and all 4 of my pc's USB sockets function correctly.

Feeling very disappointed I can't get this up and running yet. I've contacted Bob and he's going to get back to me. The Volvotech customer service has been superb but I thought I'd just ask here in case any of you had a similar issue and found a solution. Many thanks.

All up and working now thanks to Bob and Ed at Volvotech....brilliant. Bob at Volvotech used remote access in order to try and resolve the issue but in the end he asked me to return the CFE and cables to him in order to check everything out in their lab. They found that they had to modify the CFE drivers to work with my version of Windows 10. This involved sending the unit back to them for the software modification. Turn around time for this was 48 hours door to door which was great considering they are outside the UK.

The service from Volvotech has been first class and I'd highly recommend them to anyone considering purchasing one of these CFE devices.

Just purchased the same, ordered on Wednesday delivered on Thursday, less than half the price of the Grom equivalent too. No steering wheel controls for track selection as you'd get with the grom, but that's not worth paying and extra 140 for.


Getting the plug out fro the existing aux connection was the trickiest bit of the install, not much room for man sized hands, ended up pulling the connector out with the cable, disconnected the plug from the aux connector and went to clip the connector back into place and dropped it deep into the bowels of the tunnel. Not a problem for me as it won't be needed again. Just be careful if you're installing yours. This probably only makes sense if you've installed one yourself.

I haven't even picked up my XC90 and I'm looking at accessories! First is Bluetooth handsfree calling, will the below work on a '59 XC90 Active:

https://www.volvotech.eu/mmhu-abt?mf...-mutecables%5D

Given the Parrot Interface from Volvotech is 225euro I'm guessing it's not as simple as just the 95euro option above or can I be pleasantly surprised?! If not is a Parrot my best option, and does it need the MMMI interface I've just mentioned?

Secondly what functions will work if I get a CFE on the same model above?

Auto folding mirrors on lock?
Dipping mirrors on reverse?
Will the 'pre-warm' work with this model and if so how does it work? (excuse my ignorance but my only comparison would be a Webasto which is a stand alone addition?)

Bluetooth calling is the priority but having missed the group buy at a great price if I'm going to go for a CFE I might aswell only pay postage once!

Thanks in advance - finding the forum really useful in the run up to getting our new (to us) car.
