Today, snowflake appeared (2 C) but nothing heard from the speakers. Just the symbol in DIM.
OK, I've solved it. It's not a Volvo feature :(

It's a feature in the Torque Pro app. I had it running on my phone when I started the car, and it played the warning message through the car speakers! I managed to re-create it this morning.

Do you use any specific pid's with torque when you use it? For example: dispalying dpf readings or regeneration procedure?

I don't use those specifically, as mine's a T2, but have a look here:

I have read on other posts re city safety that you can test it with a large cardboard box (flat screen tv empty of course) less damage if it doesn’t work😄

From experience it works if you do not press the brakes at all, and the sensor feels a collision imminent, and it even works when you press the brakes, but the car feels you are still not pressing the brakes hard enough, and it will put full brakes on for you to avoid hitting. I really should brake earlier shoudn't i?

My car used to have the blower /fan turn on whenever i unlocked the car via remote, the cabin would be more cooler as you get in, truly a great feature. However it stopped doing so a year ago, apparently it's part of the CZIP package and it's meant to only operate for four years. Is there any way I could re-enable this?

Here's one - the auto sensing wiper function on my 2013 v40 D2 - I though there was something wrong as it seemed to start working all the time and not waiting for drops to land - got annoying so turned it off. Booked in for the annual service and mentioned it - the guy smiled and gave me this tip _ _ the wiper delay adjustment ring not only adjusts the wiper delay in 'delay mode' but acts as a sensitivity adjustment for the auto wipers - nice one

Checking Traffic Information today (3 hours for the Dartford Tunnel). Found you can scroll through multiple events.
You select Traffic Information and then you are presented with a list of events. You scroll to the first one and press ENTER. But if you press ENTER again it brings up number 2, and so on.
Maybe other people don't see multiple traffic events like we do in the south?
