Also, the car doesn't support Android Automotive, it's built on it. And it doesn't support Android AUTO at all, either (which seems to be what they're implying).1) "Phone users who use the Apple IOS operating system have come across a major setback in that they cannot connect their phone to their Polestar 2 electric sedan as the software only supports Android Automotive".
As a "home hacker" who has modified the coding in previous vehicles, it's not as bad or scary as you think.Security issue perhaps. No one wants a back door into the OS - iOS or AA. Volvo won’t even open their diagnostics port to non VIDA applications or OBD hardware. Can you imagine the mess a home hacker could make trying to jailbreak their car, much less someone with a more sinister agenda? If only they would allow “A Better Route Planner” into their App Store, but so far, no dice.
Nice dealer you got there.Just rec’d an email from my Volvo Service Manager - he just tried to access 2.2 for dealer install and it was not there yet. He will keep trying and let me know - as soon as he has access to it he will email me to bring my car in that afternoon. Stay tuned!
