Default Volvo maps, not very good!

I am in the UK, the following pic was taken this morning in a town with 30 mph speed limits.


Lots of the speed limits are wrong.

The commentary refers to squares and not roundabouts, cash points are shown in dollar signs. Is there a UK version?

I downloaded the latest map data in November 2019.

I do like the speed camera warning "beep" and was wondering how this works?

Is it from maps data or is the radar trap detected by the car?

I don’t have the road sign recognition (which I think how the volvos show the speed in the dash) but the “ping” is done via location. Depending on how fast you are going up to the camera it pings at different distances.

Sounds like you might have the Nav set up in US spec maybe?
