APPLE CARPLAY, PANDORA, YELP & OTHER APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE ON VOLVO XC90

Customers can now enjoy Volvo’s integrated Apple® CarPlay experience, along with other new applications, on the all-new XC90.

Volvo’s human tech design approach, which puts people at the center of technology development and integration, resulted in a truly unique CarPlay integration. It allows use of other vehicle and infotainment functions without needing to jump in-and-out of the CarPlay application for a seamless experience between the driver’s iPhone®, Sensus Connect and the car’s functions.

“The Apple CarPlay experience enhances the award-winning user interface already available on the XC90 and just announced S90 sedan” said Lex Kerssemakers, President and CEO of Volvo Cars of North America, “The Sensus Connect touchscreen gives us flexibility to update software and add features to cars after they have been delivered to customers. This is an important part of our commitment to long-term customer satisfaction.”

In addition to CarPlay, the available software update includes Pandora, Yelp, and Find Parking applications via the XC90’s in-car remote update service. Each application is tailored to the Volvo Sensus environment, providing an ideal interface that minimizes driver distractions through the car’s steering wheel, voice and touchscreen controls. Owners will also receive updated HERE navigation maps, real time traffic information via INRIX and improved speech input and performance.

XC90 owners who took delivery of their vehicle before November 23, 2015 can schedule an appointment at their local Volvo retailer to receive a complimentary CarPlay update. Customers receiving their vehicle after that date may purchase CarPlay through their retailers for $300. Available applications such as Pandora, Yelp, Find Parking, updated navigation maps and traffic information are provided via a courtesy update for all XC90 customers.
