I vaguely remembered the sales guy telling me that my S90 had some phone enabled features, like remote starting and climate pre-conditioning. I am not a huge user of features like these, so it took me a couple of months before I yesterday started looking into it.
It seems as if they require the Volvo On Call app. I started setting it up, but it required a PIN i did not have, so the app prompted me to press the On Call button (I didn't even realize it was there) and talk to customer service, which I did.
After an ominous warning that I was giving On Call access to my vehicle data (I hate data sharing) I got to speak to a representative.
Turns out On Call requires a subscription, and it isn't cheap...
I'm actually kind of astonished that I handed over over $40k and they are going to nickel and dime me over remote services, which already use a data sim I am paying for through my cellphone plan.
All that said, Volvo has been absolutely terrible about publishing the details regarding what On Call actually does.
From my googling, it seems as if it has remote starting and climate pre-conditioining (marginally useful IMHO) and some sort of dumb Concierge service which I would never use.
Does it have any other features that would make it worthwhile? Because at this price and the features I know about I'd probably be paying $25 per time I used the thing, and that's just not worth it.
Appreciate any opinions!
