WELCOME TO Volvo Sensus 3.0
Page 1 Date Issued: 5/11/12
Access more functions from the steering wheel
It's now easier to keep both hands on the steering wheel as you
go through all of the Sensus menus:
• Press and hold the Exit button to see a menu for the
function that you're currently using.
- To use that menu, click the thumb scroll wheel and scroll
to your selection.
- To access the main menu along the left, just start
scrolling once you've pressed the Exit button.
• You can now choose phone numbers by using the thumb
scroll wheel - and you can still answer calls with a quick
click of that wheel.
Source button function
When you press any of the source buttons (RADIO, TEL,
MEDIA), you now go to the current screen for that function. For
example, pressing RADIO brings you to a screen that shows
the current radio station. Press the source button again to open
the menu for that category and use the thumb scroll wheel or
OK/MENU knob to make your selections.
Preset scrolling for Satellite Radio stations
You can now scroll through the presets for AM, FM, and
Satellite Radio stations using the arrow keys on the center
control panel and the steering wheel.
If you see Trip statistics on the MY CAR menu, we've updated your Volvo Sensus software - and you may notice
some changes that make the system easier for you to use! Here's a quick summary for you ...
Automatic phone syncing
Once phones are paired with Sensus, the system looks for the
last phone that was connected. If it does not detect that phone,
it keeps looking for additional paired phones. You won't need to
manually change phones as long as the phone is already paired
with the vehicle. Please note that it may take up to 30 seconds
for the system to detect the phone, depending on the type
of phone you have - you don't need to manually connect the
phone each time.
Trip statistics
You'll see a new option on your MY CAR menu: Trip statistics.
This shows the following information for your current trip
(calculated from the time you start the engine):
• Miles per gallon.
• Time.
• Distance driven.
Need additional help?
Call our Customer Care Center at 1 (800) 458-1552 and speak
with a Volvo Sensus specialist. and, be sure to download the
Volvo sensus essentials app from the itunes store or the Android
Marketplace - there's a new version for Volvo Sensus 3.0
(available mid-June 2012).
Do you have Volvo
Sensus 3.0
To determine which version of
Volvo sensus you have, go to the
MY CAR menu. If you see trip
statistics on the menu, you have
sensus 3.0. If you do not see trip
statistics as an option, you have
sensus 2.0.
WELCOME TO Volvo Sensus 3.0

There are also updates for Volvo sensus vehicles equipped with
the optional Volvo Navigation system with Voice Control and
Real-time traffic.
Navigation menus
There are now two menus to choose from. Access the main menu
by holding in the Exit button and then scrolling to the Navigation
icon or by pressing the NAV button on the center control panel
twice. You'll see options for:
• Start Navigation.
• Set address.
• Set point of interest.
• Previous destinations.
• Traffic events ahead.
• Cancel guidance.
You'll still find a second Navigation menu by pressing the OK/
MENU button when in the map view. Here, you'll see options for:
• Repeat voice guidance.
• Set destination.
• Route details.
• Traffic information.
• Current position.
• Settings.
• Pause/Resume guidance.
NAV button function
You can now press the NAV button twice to access the main
navigation menu. The first press opens the map view; the second
press brings up the menu.
Canceling navigation
The new main menu allows you to cancel navigation right from
the first screen. You can still cancel it using voice commands -
simply press the voice control button on the steering wheel, say
"navigation," and then say "cancel guidance."
Making adjustments while driving
You can now adjust navigation functions while the vehicle is
moving, including setting a new destination!
Set single destination
A new "Set single destination" option deletes previous
destinations in the itinerary and starts guidance immediately.
You can also set a new stop along the route by choosing to
"Add waypoint."

This is awesome! I was hoping they would see the value in a 'current' trip feature! Love the addition of time and distance. One big step closer to the VW/Audi trip computer perfection! Looks like a very nice set of improvements! Just wonder what I have to complain about to get this update.

Is this another secret updated that needs to be requested based upon symptoms, or will it be applied at the next S&S Service??

Will this apply to all Sensus equipped models (aka my XC60)? Couple of nice features and decent fixes in that list. Of course I might have liked an update like "Navigation: more street names shown", but I'll take what I can get. Interesting that this is referred to as Sensus 3.0. Much like most software releases, there are interim patches and updates and when they get enough of them they are bundled together and a "full version" is released. Glad to see Volvo is doign this and I hope they CONTINUE so existing owners don't feel abandoned at any point.

I think it is more likely a dealer would do the ICM update at every service (Information Control Module -- that is the
basic car systems). In the past, you had to ask for the audio system update (IAM). Sounds like it is now a targeted
bundle. I would still mention "I'm looking forward to the new Sensus features like Trip Statistics" when you go over the
work with the service writer.

It also mentions there is a card to hand to the customer documenting some of the new features. Probably the
info under "WELCOME TO Volvo Sensus 3.0".

This looks cool. I can't wait till the Sensus 4.0 though when they also upgrade the gauge cluster to the one in the V40 free of charge! :p

The customer card also makes mention of the new "Volvo Sensus Essentials" app for iPhone. I just downloaded it and it seems like more of a reference guide. It does have a shortcut to dialing Volvo Customer Care which is nice; how many folks know to track down this number in the manual! It Also has a nice search function to help find a particular feature.

I'll have to have my S60 updated next time I'm in for service. I see they are finally fixing the "Hurricane 2000" text that seems to pop up when my phone looses reception. That was an annoying and confusing bug to be sure.

Does any one know if this Sensus 3.0 is available in Australia?

Yes, this update should work for any car with the 7" display. The Nav app works a bit like a second program and this update was to the core Sensus system. There's not one single version number that indicates Sensus 3.0, but if you can access the Trip Computer under My Car, then you are running 3.0.

Hmm, thanks. I reviewed some youtube videos on Sensus 3.0 and it looks like a worthy upgrade. Some minor UI changes that would make it less annoying, plus the trip computer is cool....I can pretend to be a Prius!
