      Question Languages that the car read..

      Hi all,
      So I have this scenario:
      - I receive often SMS's (yes.. I still use SMS - although WhatsApp is much better ) in 4 languages: English, French, German and Portuguese.
      - When I ask the car to read the messages to me, for English, French and German, it reads very well indeed. But for Portuguese SMS's, it reads in very strong Spanish accent (??)

      My guess is that Sensus goes online to some VOLVO service to try to figure out what's the language.. and it is identifying the PT as ES instead.

      Anyone with similar experience? Is this fixable?

      Thanks!

      I can confirm that it can't read in Czech (no surprise there; at least the US car version). :-)
