I drive a 2012 Volvo S60 The Blue tooth does not work, I cannot hear the GPS directions and it frequently stops working altogether. I have made three trips to the dealership and they tell me that if a software update does not work it will be too expensive to fix. Is this a manufacture’s defect? Software updates have not,according to the dealership does not work
Even if it is a manufacturer’s defect, you’re past the warranty period. If you can’t or don’t wish to get another car, find one of the shops that specialize in auto sound systems. They’ll either be able to fix yours or install a work around.
