      Yes, that was exactly my experience with the Nappa leather Inscription seats as well. For me, they are excruciatingly uncomfortable, especially on any trip longer than a half hour. :thumbdown:

      Polestar 1 Review on PBS Motorweek

      This weekend's installment of the PBS show Motor Week featured a first look at the Polestar 1. Overall very complimentary, as one might expect. Nice to see some footage of this gorgeous car in...

      On my many trips to Copenhagen over the years, I always arrived by train from Germany at the Hovedbanegård and stayed at the Hotel Astoria, which is directly adjacent to the station's main entrance...

      Congrats on the new drive! FYI, all the 2017 S90 Inscriptions in the US were equipped ex factory with the Dynamic suspension, larger 20" rims and the Pirelli PZero summer tires, even here in NE. WTF...

      Yup, I had this issue with both of my SPA cars after the November update, which somehow screwed up the PA calibration. I had to take both back to the dealership, where they had to recalibrate the PA....

      Just to be clear, the phone must be connected simultaneously to 4G LTE OTA and to the adapter via wi-fi. Try forgetting Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and LTE and resynching all three. Rebooting iPhone first...

      Mode 3 is an artifact from the much earlier 11.11 firmware version. If you have already updated your adapter via USB, the old Mode settings are no longer accessible or relevant.

      It sounds like...

      Update: I mistakenly thought my adapter had been shipped to Italy, because the vendor sent me an incorrect tracking number. My adapter shortly thereafter showed up here with a completely different...

      In my two current SPAs, I get the screen option to select either of two paired phones even if only one is in the car. However, after a few seconds, it will default to the one in the car if the other...

      That's right. Momentum has two-way lumbar, whereas base Inscription has four-way lumbar, side bolster and thigh extension. Either is IMO&E preferable to the Inscription with Nappa leather seats,...

      Sorry, but I would have to disagree with the majority of previous posters. I had two SPA Inscription Volvos with the ventilated leather seats, and I found that the Nappa leather was very thin and...

      There is something very wrong with this chart. I suspect that, at the very least, the labels for S60 and S60 II and for V60 and V60 II were reversed. Sigh. Given that Rockleigh can't seem to get...

      Updates and corrections to my first impressions. I have since upgraded the firmware and the adapter works for the most part just fine now.

      PBS Motor Week Review of 2020 V60CC

      This week's installment of the long-running PBS auto review program Motor Week features a virtually rave review of the 2020 V60 CC T5 AWD. The only quibble was that their test vehicle averaged only...

      FWIIW: I just received a CARPLAY2Air dongle and took it out for a spin. Initial reactions:

      1. Apple Maps works just fine.

      2. Dongle will play music stored on iPhone running 13.3 but it will not...

      FWIIW, the deep bass performance in my 2020 V60 Harman Kardon audio system is very decent, but only with the subwoofer and lowest band equalization cranked up to maximum. I listened to a variety of...

      FWIIW, I have occasionally experienced a fair amount of torque-steer in my (former) FWD 2017 S90 and (current) FWD 2018 V90 -- and I am not all that aggressive a driver. Be that as it may, I have...

      The USB socket fit gets looser with time and use, just as in the previous generation of Volvos. Try putting a piece of electrical tape on one side of the USB stick to tighten up the fit. Works like a...
