Default Sensus Map Update Practicalities

For my 2018 XC 40 R Design Sensus navigation, I have my new map update loaded onto a USB stick. The update installation starts as expected when the stick is inserted with the car sensus display active but how on earth can I keep the display active to allow the full update to load without running the engine? The Sensus display doesn't stay on in ignition position 0 with the car parked and even if I leave it on ignition position 1 it switches off after a short while.

I cannot find any way in the manual or online to get round this.

As per the other vehicles with the new Sensus (XC90, V90, S90, XC60, V60) you plug in the USB with the map update and just drive around as normal. The car will update the map in the background and then let you know when it is about finished (and you then take out the USB stick and turn off the car, next time you start car will be the new version).

It can take 30+ minutes of driving to update, and if your journey is not that long then just leave the USB stick in place and the update will carry on the next time you start the car up. The screen will also show you the % complete. Oh, and most of the time the sat nav will carry in working right up until it’s almost completed the update.

Hope this helps.

Thank you apnicolle. I understand.

The main learning point for me is not to leave an update until the last minute before travel.
