I have noticed when I expand the radio section (AM/FM/Favorites etc.) and I start scrolling through the stations using the steering wheel controls the cursor highlighting the station moves down the list but the station list does not move up as the cursor moves down.
Does anyone know if there is a setting to allow you to control this? It is annoying…
Thanks…

Annoying SW bug that Volvo doesn't seem to want to fix.

When I'm using the steering wheel controls, I look at the instrument panel (displays current media information), not the center screen. I don't see a real issue here.

And, I wouldn't call this a defect because it's more of an enhancement. Implementing this correctly would require knowing (1) if the radio control panel is open, (2) the last station if currently closed, (3) calculating the viewport offset to ensure the list entry is visible, etc. Software isn't exactly easy. ;)

Perhaps SW is not so simple, but cars that cost 1/4 of a Volvo have this working just fine.

I just want it to stop informing me that my Sirius XM subscription has expired, thank you , you told me, now shut up about it.

Perhaps Volvo gets a share of each activation, otherwise why does it constantly keep telling me that?

Writing software on a mature OS is easy. But it is hard on a QNX where desktop UI support is limited.

Of course Android UI will not have such problem. And they don't have motivation to spend time on fixing current Sensus.

I know this is wishful thinking but hopefully the processor in the sensus hardware is compatible with the android OS

The Google Auto (or whatever it’s to be called) code could also be ported to run on the QNX hardware in existing SPA class Volvo’s.
