Default Wtf Volvo?!..

I love my XC60- and the main reason I bought it was the fact that I loved my V60 before it.. The one thing I just hated on the old V60 was the navi alternate route suggestions.. they just plain sucked - often times completely bollocks..

Well.. the XC60 continues the tradition..



“Would you like to drive for an extra mile in order to waste 18 minutes of your life?” And after I reject it- it will pop up another 50 times or so..

I live for the day I’ll be able to run google Maps on Sensus via Apple CarPlay..

Or you could be lucky like me and have the whole irritating Volvo system suddenly stop working!

I think he meant use your smart phone for navigation not sensus. Mine works ok for now, but i would probably just use a smartphone rather than get the nav system fixed if it played up.

I dont think this is a Volvo issue, I tend to find all sat nav seem to send you on a route that is not as quick as some others, I rarely take the sat nav route till I am near destination to find it.

It's a fairly average satnav (at best). I've never had a car which can't display ETA and RTA simultaneously.

My first Lexus from 15 years ago had basic satnav features which which are still missing on Volvo's latest implementation.

Mk1 XC90 version was probably worse!
It's as if the Volvo folks had never seen a TomTom or Garmin.
I've always referred to it as the Volvo "Crap-Nav".

I find this "crap-nav" good enough.
