We picked it up on Saturday.

The Infotainment system crashed 3 times, typically turning a solid color and the center of the dash display would also turn it's own solid color (on Navigation mode at least.) It also crashed a couple of times yesterday.

At one point we got an error message in the center display but clicked through it before taking a picture. This vehicle is running the latest software. Has anyone else had this issue?

I had a similar situation. I linked the ONCALL app with the keys and the problem seemed to disappear.

The app doesn't have full car functions, but for some odd reason, after linking it, everything resolved.

Cool I will give that a try. We currently have 2 profiles, the primary (admin) is linked to the valet key and a secondary account is linked to key 1. I will try adding key 2 to the primary and see if that helps.

Edit: I didn't realize you could only link a single key to a profile. I will ask my wife to swap out the valet key for a real one and see if that helps.

I have the same problem on my XC40 Recharge in Germany. During about 1000 miles the system crashed 9 times. A software reload last Friday did not help.

We have an appointment next week because a part came in. Based on what I've heard they will replace the computer.

FYI I have this issue too. I love the car except for this glitch. I have driven it maybe 350 miles now, and it's happened probably 12 times now. The dealership tried a software upgrade and it did not fix it. I'm taking it in again on Wednesday. I also have been in touch with Volvo's customer service about it and they're opening a file with the dealership. I really, really hope they can resolve this problem.

I have driven about 1000 miles in my P8 and have had one crash and that was early on … nothing else has changed, no upgrades.

it was at night so not an external heat issue.
I wonder if crashes can be software instability rng issues as well as the more obvious heat or faulty hardware caused crashes.

I've had this same issue since picking up the car 3 months ago. Dealer could not find a problem. Seems to happen more often when backing up and turning on other functions such as defroster. Becoming more frequent and extremely disconcerting.

I figure rebooting the IHU is just part of the ritual of owning a car with the brand-spanking-new Android Automotive. I probably reboot it every two or three days. Most recently was tonight when the driver-side map vanished, the cruise control vanished, and the settings -> driving page was all greyed out.

The infotainment does occasionally crash or parts of it does. These are rare. If your having regular crashes (more than twice a day for more than say 3 days out of 5) then there is something and you will need dealer work to replace parts, fix corrupted drivers or install new software.

A few people have gone through this and come out fully functional after fixes have happened.

Sucks to be happening though.

Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

That is far too often and would drive me nuts. I would take it to dealer to see if maybe the IHU needs to be replaced. There are several of us here that have had the IHU replaced. A bad IHU with buggy software is no fun.

Agree - had the car since early April - and have had to Re-boot maybe 3-4 times in total.
