      Map updates

      Hello,

      Has anyone else had trouble updating maps from USB I have tried several USB sticks of various sizes and followed the instructions to the letter Are Volvo's very particular when it comes to USB sticks as this is my first Volvo or could I have a faulty Sensus ?

      Thanks

      Also, make sure you safely eject your thumb drive before removing it from your computer. I learned it the hard way how important that is!

      Thanks for the responses , looks like it's just me with the problem so maybe something wrong with my sensus or usb port . Just annoying you can't update OTA as my car is connected to my home WIFI but the fike is too big, I suppose a safeguard to stop people using all there data up. I think it should still give you the option though with a warning about data use.

      Anyway thanks again

      I think mine was done straight from the screen itself. But of course it has the internet still.

      I turned my map updates to OTA. We do have Volvo on Call but not the Hotspot subscription. It appears they will still let you download the map updates using the on board cellular modem (Audi does this as well). Now it just happens in the background and installs when it completes the download.

      It will do OTA for small updates but if its a large update it will tell you it's too big and must be done by USB. Unfortunatly the person who had the car before me didn't keep there maps upto date so its a 2Gb update which Volvo deem to big for OTA for some reason.

      I do all updates by OTA. Most of the monthly updates are 1.5GB size on OTA itself. I live in Australia.

      Interesting maybe it's a regional thing I'm in the uk and the sensus tells me its too big to download or maybe 1.5gb is the cutoff. I'm booked in at the dealers next week as an alarm sensor , handbrake and bonnet(hood) opener need fixing so I'll see if they can update the maps.

      I am in the same boat. On my 4th time downloading the NA 907 1300 update. Volvo won’t recognize it. I have done it before with this stick/computer...

      I’ve been able to do it over the air in my car as long as it can connect. I now only down load the portions of the country that I might need.
