The most advanced model in Volvo range, the current XC90 is now benefiting some improvements for its multimedia system. The integrated Apple CarPlay has now more features that help integrate better the applications you find on an iPhone. 

For an improved experience the system allows 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.

And if you dont have an iPhone and Carplay does not serves you, the multimedia system software now brings access to Pandora, Yelp, and Find Parking applications via the XC90’s in-car remote update service. 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.
