      2015.5 Sensus Connect Startup

      Does everyone else's (sometimes) take forever to start? I tend to always have the radio on in the car, and sometimes it'll start right away, but sometimes it'll take minutes to have any sound (start car, let idle drop, leave garage, get out and close garage door (yeah, I need an opener), get in, leave driveway, drive down the hill to the stop sign, THEN I'll get sound).

      It's not THAT big of a deal, but I want to make sure it's not something to get fixed before CPO goes away.

      -anyone else have issues with the computer/Sensus wake up to slow down over time.?
      My 15.5 has trouble getting on/off the back up screen over time and reading the same USB stick over time.
      Takes a good 3 secs after I shift to reverse to see back-up cam and 5 or more to turn off once in drive.

      Sensus use to take a minute max to "read USB" , now sometimes 2 mins. Same stick that has been in the car for months.
      Also doesn't display some embedded artwork that was done in the same manner with iTunes.

      Does the computer have a cache that needs to be cleared?
      Perhaps there are firmware updates since May 2016?

      Posaune, does this delayed startup also occur when the car is out in a parking lot somewhere? You want to rule out something in your home environment is interfering, something about the GPS location, or a Bluetooth device (cell phone) it's searching for. The Bluetooth wireless can just detect a cell phone thru the garage wall inside the house -- what happens when the phone is on the "hairy edge" of being connected? What is the Sensus display screen showing during the delay? What kind of radio station are you waiting to start up (AM, FM, Digital FM, Sirius)??

      When you get out to close the garage, what if you leave the key fob in the car?

      Interesting ideas. Iíll try doing different things to see if it makes a difference.

      It mostly does it at home, but the reason I remembered to post is that it did it the other day after I got gas and it seemed an extra long wait. Iirc, itís done it in various places, but it seems to be usually when the car has been sitting and was recently started. That gas station is only a couple miles from home, for example.

      The screen shows the Volvo logo for awhile, but it can switch to whatever it had been on (nav., radio, itíll go to backup cam normally, etc) and still the radio doesnít make sound. And itís just FM that is normally on.

      Updates:

      I did some errands today and paid attention.

      --leaving the key in after starting didnít seem to make a difference.

      --It did it again after stopping at the post office too, which was a similar sort of stop to getting gas (basically same short distance and short duration of stop).

      --went a bit farther to get some lunch, which I ate there (taking longer than a post office stop, obviously). It did it there too

      --drove to a store in the same parking lot to quickly pick something up. It had barely started by the time I parked, then it did it again when I restarted.

      --drive to another store down the road a couple miles, went in quickly and came right out. It started right away.


      Weird.

      All the parking lots were big and open, so I think I can rule out the garage being the issue. My phone was in my pocket the whole time, as was the key, after the first stop.
