Fantastic... when it works The app is fantastic when it works. When I first installed it, performance was quick and reliable. Now it seems as if every request must be made at least twice before the app is successful in completing the task. I believe this is a saturation issue because it seems as more eligible vehicles come out and are registered, the performance of the app degrades. Whatever it is, it needs to be corrected because I guarantee it's costing Volvo money at this point.
Volvo for life Works excellent a bunch of negative reviews. Here's a positive review!
The app format is very simple and clear and when it works it's easy to use. Unfortunately, most of the time it just does not work. It tells me the car is located somewhere the other side of town when it's in my garage, the response to commands is tediously slow and it's now telling me the tailgate is open when it's closed and locked. I am still in the 6 months free trial period and based on performance to date I won't subscribe after the free period expires. Pity because my 2016 XC70 is a great car.
Worst app The app told me that the door on my 2016 S60 Inscription Platinum was unlocked. I then locked it through the app and then it told me it was locked. Then, one minute later it changed and told me the car was unlocked, and that the motor was running. I walked out to the car and saw that it WAS locked and that the motor was NOT running. It is a shame that this app is so unreliable, since the car is fantastic. Volvo needs to get this app fixed. Until it does, I will delete it, since it is not trustworthy.
Various problems Last few days this app has been very problematic. Doesn't recognize WiFi connection as connected to the internet. Remote start doesn't work. After reinstall, doesn't update to current status. States car is running when it in fact is not. The lag in starting the app and updating is counter intuitive.
Completely unreliable The app takes forever to open and update status. I park 5 blocks from work it won't start the car unless I'm standing beside the drivers door. And , No, it has nothing to do with the satellite coverage, I'm downtown in a major city. It continually gives wrong data- car is running when it's not, car is unlocked & Windows are open when it's not. I paid for 3 years in a package and it sours any satisfaction with the car.
