The app is killing me. I press lock doors and it says they are locked. I go outside and they are not locked! I get messages - your Volvo is unlocked- helpful unless it's really locked and you just ran 1/2 mile back to the car. Anyone else having this issue?

Haven't seen that one. I only get alerts from the app when it's actually unlocked. And I just lock it with the app. What's the reason you are running back to lock the car?

Still waiting on my car but what app is this?

why running back? you can lock the car through your phone.
From his post, he's running because he's getting a message that the car is unlocked. As in, someone might be tampering with it.

Did you ever get to the bottom of this issue? We woke up this morning to a series of iPhone notifications from our 1-day old volvo that it was unlocked and that the anti-theft alarm went off. None of those were true.

Yes! It's killing me. It's been 5months and I can not rely on the app. It works 20% of the time. It's telling me its locked but it's not. The car is out in the open so there no obstructed signal.

I give up!

You should try to post your issue on the official Volvo support forum. Either in the XC90 forum or in the Volvo-on-call forum. There are official Volvo reps on that forum and at least you'll know your frustration is being heard:

VOC forum: http://support.volvocars.com/forum/forum9-volvo-on-call.aspx
XC90 forum: http://support.volvocars.com/forum/forum18-volvo-xc-my-.aspx

Good luck!

Maybe I'm stating the obvious... BUT - You're not running back to the car to check with your keys in your pocket, right?

Once you open the app, it can take awhile to contact the car and update the status. You'll see that it says "Loading" at the bottom.
I really like the push notifications that tell me when the car's been left unlocked!
