Here is some more on the Telematics options, as promised: <br>Volvo's On Call Plus system integrates the car's built-in telephone with the airbags, inflatable curtains, seat belt pretensioners and alarm systems. <p>The On Call Plus system utilizes:<br>* GPS (Global Positioning System) technology to determine vehicle's location<br>* The vehicle's built-in telephone to establish voice contact eith the On Call Plus service center<p>The On Call Plus system is active when the ignition key is in position I or II and for 96 hours after the key has been switched off.<p>The system is equipped with a back-up battery that enables an activated service to be completed, even if the vehicle's normal electrical system has been disrupted.<p>The On Call Plus system automatically notifies the On Call Plus service center in two situations:<br>* In an accident where a collision sensor activates a front or side airbag, an inflatable curtain, or a seat belt pretensioner. Activation of the WHIPS system will not initiate automatic notification to the service center.<br>* If the vehicle's anti-theft alarm is triggered.<p>One can also manually initiate contact with the Service Center. This is done by pressing and holding either the On Call or SOS button for at least 2 seconds. Those buttons can be used even when the key is NOT in the ignition.<p>Automatic Collision Notification <br>When any supplemental restraint system (SRS) sensor in the car is activated:<br>1. A call is automatically initiated from the On Call Plus system in the vehicle to the On Call Plus service senter.<br>2. The service center then talks to someone on the vehicle to assess the situation and determine the need for assistance.<br>3. The service center then contacts other support services, who send required assistance to the vehicle's location.<p>Automatic Theft Notification <br>When the vehicle's alarm system is triggered:<br>1. The On Call Plus service center is automatically notified if the alram is not turned off within 15 seconds.<br>2. The On Call Plus service center then tries to establish contact with the owner of the vehicle or another authorized person.<br>3. If theft is confirmed, the On Call Plus service center and the owner decide on further action (police, tracking, etc.).<p>Remore Unlocking/Alarm Deactivation <br>1. If you are locked out of your vehicle, then you can contact the On Call Plus service senter via their toll-free telephone number.<br>2. The On Call Plus service center can send a signal to unlock the vehicle and deactivate the alarm.<br>3. Sedans only: Complete the unlocking sequence by depressing the trunk handle twice, which is located on the underside of the rear edge of the trunk lid.<p>NOTE: The remote unlocking function is only available within 96 hours from the time at which the vehicle was locked. Also, note that if the car is parked e.g., in an underground parking garage, remote unlocking may not be possible due to poor telephone reception.<p>That's it for now...the more we learn, the more we will post and/or be able to answer further questions. Very nice system... Volvo should have been offering it, already.<p>Yannis<p>

Re: Telematics (GrecianVolvo)

Does anyone know if I'll be able to add this feature aftermarket?<p>I have an '01 S60 T5 with GPS... and I know that this feature was made available everywhere else BUT North America with the '01 models....<p>I'm really keen to show my wife's On-Star(tm)-equipped GMC Envoy up, and this looks like it would do the trick nicely. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"><p> - matthewk

Even if you ordered a 2003 model without it and decided, at a later date, to add it it canot be done.<p><br>Yannis
