Yes. Whatever memory position the profile is in last is what is set when you activate that profile. I have to keep telling the wife not to touch the memory buttons, if her profile does not switch to automatically pull down screen and change profile and seat will move. Be sure to connect each profile to a different key. My Acuras would detect which key opened the driver's door while the P8 seems to be whichever key unlocks the car first or opens a door first, very annoying.

Does one need a different google account for a second profile? We share one google as a family. And yea we get each other’s advertisements :)
You need a separate account, I think it can be a Volvo account. Since my wife has a T5 we created here a non-gmail Google account that she uses for my YouTube premium and her profile in my P8.

I have the admin profile and a\connect it to my key, we set up her profile and connect to her key. Memory position 1 is me, and 2 is her. The profile seems to use what every memory position was set when the profile as last used. So if I push memory 2 while my profile is in use the next time my profile is used it will go to memory 2.
The trick is sometimes she gets to the car before me and opens the back and the car unlocks with her key then I get in and it may have her profile. Her -roiled moves the seats to memory 2 and pairs with her phone. If I switch the profile back to mine, the seats more to memory 1 and it pairs with my phone. Any apps associated with the profile change on the center screen.

It is very picky and can get confused if 2 people with a key and connected profile get to the car and it seems to depend on who unlocks it.
Like I said, out Acura’s everything was linked to a key, so whatever memory position was set for a given key would be selected when that key was detected opening the driver’s door irregardless of who may have unlocked the car from the remote or another door. Another Swedish quirk.

We have had the car adjust if it has sat a while and then only one key get s in car it will switch profile. Not reliably unless it is a full unlock. Seems to be time based if not locked.

It is a bit quirky. Would be nice for the profile to have a setting to pick the default memory position for that profile, but once you get the hand of it it works most of the time. Just always have the driver approach and unlock a door then otherwise use the main screen pull down to switch profiles.
