      I got it this past weekend, and there was NOTHING noticeable. But you can read what is supposed to be in it here: https://www.volvocars.com/my/support...ftware-updates But Connect Car is NOT there.

      Sounds like it's disabling Navigation when Android Auto nav is active. That's actually removing functionality as far as I'm concerned since there have been times where I've had both navs active to compare the routes they recommend.

      The page was updated Sunday. Which really means nothing, they could have corrected a typo.

      Don't stick out your neck for anything noticeable, as there will not be any.
      The current car will not be updated much. Even with unusable voice control for nav, we'll have to stick to it.

      Next car for me will be at least P*2, XC40 P8 EV or later, that comes with Android and google voice control.

      I got an update on July 2 during my 40k service. Only thing that I noticed different (so far) was the Drive Modes on the Sensus display had changed the "Dynamic" wording to "Polestar Engineered" which I assume you must have the Polestar programming already installed.

      Change from Dynamic to Polestar was introduced lat year. Looks like your car not updated for long time.

      Is upgrading the software done by the dealer only or can I do that at home?

      Normally by the dealer, unless you buy the cable and a subscription to VIDA.

      You need to pay for the Polestar upgrade.

      Correct. Polestar upgrade is needed to see that.

      Buster, you are correct. It's been a year since I had my dealer service the car. At that time, Polestar appeared only on the dash display, and now on the Sensus drive modes.
