Well. Can hold out hope until it actually gets here but I'll be the first to say this is disappointing. No mention of missing features like drivers profiles or easy ingress. It's a long list but just doesn't seem that exciting.

It definitely doesn't include Driver's Profile. I confirmed that with Volvo. They do say they are still working on it so it hasn't been abandoned.

I love my car but would not be surprised if this becomes a bit of an issue. Plus, as many have been saying and I am feeling more and more aligned with this view, it's kind of ridiculous that we've had to wait so long for what is seeming just fixing a few bugs. Not impressed!

It's good mohave a list like this. Thank you Volvo.

I did not see the radio activation problem with opening the front doors. I hope it will be fixed with the update under "improved system performance and stability"

No mention of missing features like...easy ingress.
What exactly were you hoping for in terms of "easy ingress"? There is no power steering wheel adjustment on the new XC90, we have always known this and it is not something which could have been addressed by a software update. Perhaps this will be added as a feature in an upcoming model year, but if it is reason to be critical of this update then your expectations may have been unrealistic in the first place.

Oh yeah don't worry they "improved" everything. Ha I'm so mad right now! Seriously hope this update is better than it sounds.

I mean specifically the easy ingress/egress feature described in the manual. It would be nice if it included the steering wheel but I am aware that my steering wheel is not powered. It would still be useful for the seat to automatically shift to an easy ingress position. I'm way more bummed about missing driver profiles since that had really seemed a cornerstone of the new sensus experience.

I think there are still a lot of unknowns as there are so many general statements. I think until Nov 23rd, we will not know how good or bad the update is.

They are fixing the two issues that I have (greyed out SiriusXM channels and intermitten seat adjustment screen), so I'm satisfied. What's the "Driver profile" thing?

"Real-time traffic (RTTI) in 42 countries" does that mean it never had real time traffic? Does it auto-re-route around traffic?
I thought it did. It definitely shows congestion. Perhaps we already had this feature here, and the U.S. is not one of the "42 countries" they are referring to. While I'm excited for the update, I can't deny that I'm extremely disappointed that profiles still isn't happening. This is such an important feature on a vehicle with so many options that can be customized.

Hahaha I know I know I'm sorry. Can't help it. Yes, I am already bummed out. I'm not nearly as hopeful about this update as I was yesterday. Absolutely we will all have to wait and see. It just doesn't sound like much of a change. Besides fixing bugs, which should have been pushed over the air immediately, this just doesn't seem like much of anything new. Any new content like apps and maps are potentially made redundant by CarPlay, which itself is looking underwhelming to me.

Yeah, pretty sad they still can't nail that feature. Love that when I picked up my car, my dealer was explaining how the car had that feature and somehow these guys still can't figure it out. Perhaps they should have used those billions to hire another engineer or two.

it looks like this is a Sensus update only, does not seem to have any updates for driveability such as steering or transmission.
Not that I was expecting.

My dealer said I will have all the updates including Carplay (no mention of extra costs) when my vehicle arrives (in USA)
