      I don't think this is correct. According to the manual, and my own experience, personal (ie, not global) settings are saved to the active profile: "Any settings set prior to creating a permanent profile will automatically be saved to the Guest Profile. "

      Therefore, customize after you've created a profile.

      This is NOT the case. Manual and my experience says to create a profile then associate it with a key. In this case, you would export P1 to usb, change or create a new profile, and import P1 from the usb. Then save the new profile to the sport (or other) key.

      For starters, you need to already have the profile you want to edit active. When you first edit a profile -- other than guest -- it will have factory settings, irrespective of what you've edited on the guest profile.

      Hope that helps!

I have to go back into the settings, check off individual, configure my settings again and save them, then I can select individual mode again with the wheel. I have to do this every time after I've parked and turned off the car.

      Is anyone else having this issue?

      Just tested this multiple times. It appears that the seat (and mirror) memory settings can be saved to a profile, which is then associated with a key. I found that when I sat in the car and changed profiles, the seat and mirrors adjusted accordingly. Basically, I found the most reliable way to get personal settings saved and associated correctly with a key is to:

      1. Start in desired profile
      2. Press desired seat memory button
      3. Settings > System > Profiles > Edit (desired) > Save to key (check it off then back on!)

      I did observe it working, even with seat and mirrors. I sat in car and changed profile to wife's. Then got out and locked at handle. Then opened with my fob and profile, seats and mirrors all changed to mine.

      Not sure about connecting phone automatically...

      Well, but this is absolute nonsense.
      If Volvo wants to make sure start/stop will be active by default on every start,
      the should have REMOVED IT from the Individual drive mode settigs.

      It has nothing to do with a drive mode anyway.

      Having no option to use the individual drive mode as default almost defeats its purpose.

      I want to have my own default settings for steering, suspension etc.

      If start/stop is the reason why I canīt, then please Volvo leave it out of the Individual driver profile,
      and let us make it default profile.

      Yes- the ECO display mode tach shows you your actual economy vs. some "ideal economy," both related to revs or manifold pressure, or something. The ECO mode also shows if your car is in coast mode (e.g., drive train totally disengaged)

      Iím havign trouble saving my individual drive mode.
      My profile is set up and works nicely but every time I create an individual drive mode it doesnít save.
      Do I have to go in and do something in my already save profile?

      So I have the individual modes programmed to key fobs. However, I can't get my seat/mirror memory programmed.

      I've tried:
      - Unlocking the car using keyfob 1
      - Saving the desired settings to M1
      - Having a profile created, with 'save to key' enabled

      How do I save M1 to keyfob1, and M2 to keyfob2 (my wife's)?

      The seat/mirror memory buttons are separate from the driver profile system. There is no way to have the buttons change their memories based on a driver profile/key fob. The settings saved in a memory slot are persistent regardless of profile or key fob used.

      That's different than my experience. I created 3 different driver profiles and each time I switch profiles, the seat position changes to memory 1, 2, or 3 respectively.

      Profiles store seat and mirror positions separately from driver profiles. But they do both have the ability to store them. So what you're probably experiencing is the seat positions that you've set for each profile possibly in combination with unlocked profiles.

      For example, I've got different settings on my driver side seat memory position 1 than I have stored in my profile because I sometimes like to tighten up the bolsters and lumbar without fidgeting with the individual controls. So my profile is set to a more relaxed/less inflated setting and I just push and hold the position 1 memory button to restore my alternate preference. This works for me because my profile is locked and changing the seat position does not then get saved back into my profile. So next time I start the car, it's back to the relaxed position.

      If VOLVO don't want us to use the individual drive mode, is it possible to "for example" if you push the drive mode roller twice to let it go to individual drive mode ? or would this be to easy for their customers...
      its all just software, it easy to do...

      instead of pushing the drive mode roller, rolling the drive mode roller and pushing the drive mode roller again ?

      BTW, did VOLVO ever answered to all these requests/questions ?

      Is it possible to save the drive mode in profile settings ?
      My driver profiles works perfectly, mirrors, seats
      Radio station and AC settings.

      Yet not the driver mode, I have to select it every time in get in the car.
      Is there a way to save that individual drive mode in the profile ?

      Strange, Iíve kinda disabled that along with the auto breaks.
      I donít get those features working unless I go to eco drive mode.

      On my defaults they are disabled.
      Might wanna check your default settings.

      On a side-note i found that, if you have some issues with the infotainment system or profiles.
      Do a factory reset for everything.
      Delete drivers profiles
      And redo everything again.

      Had an issue with HUD maps not being synchronized with the central infotainment screen and it solved the issue.

      Nope, that's not the reason. Other car makers allow you to disable this. Nobody checks mpg for cars after they are bought. It's an inexplicable thing that Volvo does, and not welcome.

      As far I know, when setting the Individual mode, you may choose the default drive mode but only the three options eco/confort/dynamic, therefore there is no possibility to have the Individual mode as default.
      I understand the only way is to push the (nice) wheel knob and select the individual mode every time I start the car. Of course I can live with this, but, as you say, connecting the Drive Mode to the key would be sure better.
      Absolutely, this is a defect in Volvo's thinking. We should be able to start up in individual mode when the engine starts, and we should be able to not have auto-start/stop engaged when we start the engine, if we don't want it, and we should be able to disable the auto-door-locking when the car starts, permanently. All these things add up, along with others, to alienate some of us long-term Volvo owners, to the point of looking at other car brands when we'd rather not because other brands have these things that Volvo should permit. Some of these things are wanted or used every time we drive the car, and the inability to have these simple features that other manufacturers have in their cars is aggravating.

      Uhhhm, I'm not really sure what you mean, but "Individual" is just a custom setting where you choose the individual characteristics for the steering, engine/transmission, brakes, suspension, and climate. I have my Individual mode set to Performance for everything except for the engine/transmission and climate, which I have set to Pure. That way I get firm handling characteristics all the time, even when I'm driving on only battery power.

      With a short commute each day where I can run mostly on battery power, I have a different driving pattern than other people. My average fuel consumption from Feb-May this year is 60 mpg, getting over 600 miles per tank of fuel, and only having to fill about once a month.

      I actually don't see a purpose to having an engine temperature gauge in a modern, computerized vehicle. In fact, the only vehicles that I had where I was mildly interested in the engine temperature was a 1988 Toyota Tercel and a 1996 Jeep Cherokee because both had the potential of breaking down. I don't view my XC90 in the same category as those vehicles.

      Maybe I'm used to it, but the big dial on right hand side of the cluster shows exactly what you are saying. With the single big needle indicator, it's very easy to tell at a glance when you are using up charge or regenerating and when the engine is on.

      When you are in Performance mode, the battery use gauge is replaced by a tachometer. This is because in Performance mode, the ICE is on all the time and is not actively charging the battery for future economical use. It's managing the battery for immediate maximum power. I guess we're not supposed to worry about being super efficient when we're in Performance mode. That's the same as when we are in AWD mode. The priority is on AWD through challenging conditions, not hypermiling.

      Has anyone managed to extract and save the driver profile on a USB stick? I followed the instructions of the manual but when I reach the stage of inserting the USB, nothing happens

      Very helpful thread - thanks all! I have a 2019 XC90 T6 R-design ordered, expecting delivery in December, and anticipate that this will be useful!

      I can't help but also find this thread absolutely hilarious from the perspective of where cars have "progressed" to. In my 1996 850R sedan, I get in, push the seat memory key I want, and adjust mirrors if necessary. My wife can do the same. I also am one flick of a PHYSICAL switch away from sport mode (woohoo)! Same thing with my radio - I can tap one button to switch to a preset station, or simply scan for a different station with a tactile click of my physical tuner. And I can do all of this without ever having to remove my eyes from the road while driving, because I can rely on my finger tips and physical buttons for all of this!

      Perspective. Hop back in to an analog car sometime (especially an 850!) and you just might agree!

      I believe Yannisí reference to DRIVER DISPLAY (Eco, Comfort, Dynamic) has to do with the Instrument panel THEME. Each drive mode has its own Instrument Panel THEME (e.g., Glass, Chrome, Minimalist, Performance)

      You set your preferred default THEME in Settings -> My Car -> Displays. You may also then set your Instrument Panel THEME based on your Indiivudal Mode. The references to Eco, Comfort, Dynamic are not intuitive in the context of the DrivermDisplay so good question.

      As a new owner of an XC90 I thought I was doing something wrong or missing something about the options I explicitly turned off turning themselves back on.

      Finding out that, nope, Volvo decided the vehicle is always in Test Drive Mode is beyond infuriating.

      It does not feel like my vehicle when I need to run through a ing checklist to disable a bunch of settings every single time I start it up.

      The fact that the vehicle defaults to a state other than what I left it in is, in itself, ridiculous.

      Creating your own driver profile (to be utilized via Individual Drive Mode)

      This is what i am talking about... Still can't figure it out.


      I donít think it has to do with THEMES, as themes are configured elsewhere, plus if you were to choose theme you would do it the same way you do it for the other driving modes as well.

      ECO and CONFORT are different, but
      COMFORT and DYNAMIC are the same..

      The only possible explanation would be the case where the driverís display was 8.3 inch in some momentum trims...
      In this case if i recall correctly the tachmeter was not displayed in comfort mode...

      Colors and layout between DYNAMIC and COMFORT are exactly the same... (i am not talking about color themes, but drivers display)

      My 2020 XC90 allows me to disable Stop/Start and itís automatically remembered for future starts. As in previous model years, it can be disabled in either Settings or Profile, but now itís permanent until reenabled by driver.
