      NEW Software updates: Updates from and including July 2020

      Software updates

      Updated 6/29/2020

      https://www.volvocars.com/uk/support...ftware-updates


      Interestingly, again the XC60 from the US, EU and the rest of the world is left out of the list (except for the Chinese market)


      The last time for XC60 upgrade is mentioned is January 2020

      There have been updates to the XC60. I update these cars all the time. I've seen plenty of XC60s with updates available. It may not be itemized in these lists and the updates are likely minor, but they exist.

      I understand that once you may forget to write an upgrade for the XC60, but three times it is not normal
      This is very strange, either the administrator in Sweden does not know his job or it is proof that there is no upgrade for XC60

      Since you are an employee of Volvo, contact them and ask for an explanation. I hope they send you an answer

      No thanks, because I don't care.

      Right now I am updating a 2018 XC60. I last updated it February 11th of this year. And there is an update available for it today.

      It looks like some of the items described on the upgrade list apply to many vehicles. Even if the XC60 isn't expressly listed, a few bullet points could apply to the XC60.



      Infotainment:
      Sensus navigation is stopped when a route is started via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Previously, only the route was paused. The "Cancel" button will no longer be visible.
      The last destination for a completed route will be selectable in the list of previous destinations. Previously, this was not selectable (greyed out).

      (since no vehiocle, region, or homologation is listed; wouldn't this update apply to all SENSUS equipped vehicles?)



      and



      Applies to US/Canada: The Connected Safety function will be available.

      (presumably the NA XC60 would be included in this)

      Of course there is an update for Sensus, unlike all other models that have an engine management system’s optimization.

      Updates from and including June 2020

      Sensus navigation is stopped when a route is started via Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Previously, only the route was paused. The "Cancel" button will no longer be visible.

      It isn't that interesting. But you can keep focusing on it if you want.

      So Volvo Sweden is lying or you know something more than they do
      Or maybe they have no idea that there is an upgrade for XC60 engine management system’s optimization

      There is an update. Maybe it isn't the engine system's optimization. But there is an update. Here is your car, which was last updated 2/21/2020. The horse is dead

      You go back and read.

      I pulled up the warranty history for YOUR CAR. It was updated 2/21. Then I checked YOUR CAR today, and there are updates available.

      Like I said, just because the XC60 isn't listed doesn't mean nothing has been updated. It has and I've proven it. Move on already.

      Also interesting your car with so many problems has only had 4 dealership visits in 2 years.

      How did you pull up his car? I can't imagine Bigbang putting his VIN number on this site.

      Maybe there's a query in the warranty system for "most piece of **** Volvo" and BigBang's car turned up in that search?

      Lol - yeah for how often he says he's talking to dealers about issues on his car, I feel like his warranty history would be like 10,000 visits.

      BB’s issue is with either the technical writing department, web updates team or both. Tech deserves another beer.

      Hahha hahha so I only did the software upgrade 4 times.
      Let me explain, not all dealers are the same, the last example is my sunroof. It is not registered in the system at all, they took a picture and sent an inquiry to Sweden - Receive a response via email
      Three times I just went for software because of engine issues
      I changed the oil twice
      They changed cylinder head cover on engine because the oil was leaking
      They changed my battery because my Start-Stop system stopped working

      Conclusion: not all services and my visits to the dealer are registered at all due to problems


      PS: You could lose your job, use official equipment for private things and write about it on the forum. It’s an abuse of where you work

      I didn't say you did the update 4 times. I said it was last updated 2/21. And as of now, there is an update available. Therefore, XC60s HAVE HAD UPDATES SINCE THEN. Even if they are not itemized in the release notes. Follow along.

      And you are correct, if you just stop in and they take a picture and send you on your way, I won't see that. I see warranty claims.

      I see the oil trap (not "cylinder head cover"- another exaggeration by you) and software update 11/11/18. Support battery 3/15/19. Software update 5/24/19 and software update 2/21/20. Pretty minor stuff for what you run around here saying is such a problem car.

      And I did nothing wrong. Just called you out for your exaggerations. Sorry it upset you to be exposed.

      Yes a lot of problems with a car that costs 50K and more but ..........

      I only had one software problem but Volvo had known about this problem for over 18 months and they didn’t know how to solve it. If you need more proof of that, you know where to find them, you are still a Volvo technician
      That problem has endangered my family’s lives, ever since I HATE VOLVO


      FYI: my last service was 14.03.2020 and then a complete upgrade of the car software was done again because there was an error with the Sensus system

      Yes, that is the oil trap. I don't care what Audi calls theirs.

      In any case, minor problem.

      I love it. One of the safest cars in the world endangered 1 (and only 1) families lives. Go on please. Not much to do this weekend with the 'Rona levels rising.

      It’s not about whether it’s a small or a big problem, it’s a problem
      Another thing is that other EU producers do not call it an oil trap

      AH yes and Volvo dealers also call it: Valve Cover, Engine Valve Cover, Oil Trap

      So you have no idea even though you are a Volvo technician

      They don't call it a valve cover. Oil trap, oil seperator, breather box, PCV breather box... All the same part.

      Either way- IT DOESN'T MATTER.

      I like how you are extra salty now that you've been exposed! Posting pictures of two crashed cars with no crash data as if that shows something. Just leave already.

      I agree... he should sell his car ASAP. Volvo set a goal for no serious injury or death in their cars starting 2020. It would suck if BigBang's car starts to leak blinker fluid into his diagnostic carburetor that causes low octane oxygen to leak into the cabin resulting in serious injury ruining Volvo's dream.

      These pictures demonstrate nothing other than Volvo being safe. Modern vehicles have crumple zones that are designed to crush in an impact. The chassis uses multiple grades of steel and it's all orchestrated to disipate impact forces as much as possible, then direct the remaining energy AROUND the passenger cabin instead of through it. Parts are designed to break in specific ways to not only get out of the way so they're not pushed into the passenger compartment but so they also take energy from the impact and reduce the amount of energy passed through to the passengers. Motor mounts are specifically designed to break off and cause the engine to drop DOWN so it isn't pushed into the firewall. Look past the cosmetic drama and you'll see that the A-pillars are perfectly intact. The windshield is unbroken. The passenger compartment appears to be completely fine.

      These pictures don't show anything other than an extremely well-engineered vehicle that perfomed exactly as it was supposed to.

      The BMW was hit in the side, and although the pictures appear less dramatic, at first glance, you can tell that BMW is hurt badly. That Chassis and suspension is hosed. There isn't much between the outside of the vehicle and the passenger compartment in that area. Vehicles use high-strength steels in those areas to minimize cabin intrusion. The result is a less dramatic picture (really you shouldn't be comparing side-impact and front-impact for visuals) but a lot more energy went into those passengers.
