      Map update available

      The newest map update is now available on the Volvo download site. The new version is 1182.

      I am having trouble getting the map update into my 2017 S90. I was able to download the maps onto a USB stick, but when I insert the stick into the port in the car, nothing happens. Any ideas? I am using an 128GB stick. Might that be a problem?

      Same here, only with a 64GB stick. Plug it into the system USB port (white ringed), it reads for a second and says something along the lines of "can't read data", I forgot. Essentially it doesn't think the map file is there, even though I used the Volvo download tool to install it to the USB drive. I've done this before and never had a problem.

      Stick formatted FAT32 ?

      The stick has to be whistle-clean, i.e. no hidden files or debris left over from previous usage or installs. Just erasing previous visible files is insufficient. If all else fails, buy a brand new stick.

      I'm new to this whole game. Will your dealer update your software for you?

      The tool is supposed to accept EX-FAT and a few other formats, it'll check the thumb drive before writing to it. I guess I could reformat for fat32 and try again but I think it sees the data file and just doesn't like it.

      Here's the link: http://volvo.custhelp.com/app/answer...bmclMjElMjE%3D

      How long does this generally take?

      Do memory sticks larger than 32GB usually work?

      I use a 64GB stick. no issues, have updated maps twice. Be sure you check the file on the stick after downloading, or moving to the stick if you download to a device other than the stick first. Also be sure that the files are not in a folder, just in the root directory of the stick.

      When i updated mine last time, Version 1182, it took about 45 minutes to upload. I thought it was hung up, could not wait any longer, and left the vehicle with the USB plugged in. Came back a few hours later and it booted right up with the update.

      Okay, so this system is kind of ... awful.

      1. There are instructions on how to get your current regional map version, but not the base map version.
      2. There is a base map version shown on the page, but no regional map versions.

      The result is that I can check what my current regional map version is, but that doesn't ****ing help me because the stupid ****ing website doesn't say what the latest regional map version actually is. Then I can download the latest base map version, but there are no instructions to find my current base map version. So I have to go try to figure that out myself.

      Then I have to download each region individually for some reason, even if I update the base map? Or does the base map download include the latest version of all the regional maps? Probably not, but then why not?

      So I downloaded the latest local map and it appears to be 1166. The version in my car is 1176, so I'm assuming that would actually be a downgrade.

      Can't figure out how to check the base map version.

      I didn't have any issues with the download, just the lack of info. It seems like my car likely already has this, but there's no way to check the base map version number in the car from what I've seen.

      Regional Map Updates appear to be available OTA now.

      Yesterday, I was able to download a new regional map update from the Download Center app.
