My question is "How do I turn all this crap off?"
! I had that same exact thought when I got home. Do I have to turn off the Google Navigation or not? I got everything off (I think) except for the headlights. They stayed on for more than 5 minutes in the garage. So I went back out and wasted a few minutes looking over the control menus. Eventually, I pulled out a flashlight to get a better look at the headlight controls built onto the turn signal stalk. It had 4 or 5 settings, and I'll have to learn what they all do. One of them was 0 for off.
I downloaded a Volvo Car app onto my phone and logged in, giving it the car's VIN number as well as the usual user name & password. I did something (?) involving Bluetooth, and fully linked up my phone to the car, all with the help of the salesman. So did my wife with her phone. Now the car can distinguish between my key & phone and my wife's key & phone. No finger print or retinal scans just yet.
There is a digital owners manual available through the car's operating system. I haven't gone there yet. I also saw a way to download a manual to my phone. I'll have to do that, so I can look up things without being in the car.
I did use the car's Google Navigation system as I drove home. (The Volvo dealer I went to is in Northern Virginia, about a 45 minute drive from my home in Maryland.) It worked very well, better than on my phone. It provided 2 views at the same time. One was a close up of my immediate situation and next step on the 'dashboard display' visible through the steering wheel. And, on the 12" display panel on the center (just to my right), I could see the big picture of my entire route. I liked having both without having to fiddle with things. Using my phone for GPS navigation is like viewing a tiny portion of a big map through a tiny keyhole.
The navigation voice, which I always call Ms. Google, spoke out the directions through the car's sound system, while including pauses in speech, like a normal human. I hate the Google Map or iPhone Map voices that run all their words together without ever pausing.
I'm used to a Volvo S70, model year 2000, so all these computerized operations are new to me.
A completely analog feature, which I absolutely love, is the adjustable thigh support on the front of the seat. It's manual – slide it forward or backward to fit your knee-to-hip length. I'm 6' and my wife is 5'2". We've never had car seats that we both liked.
