I’m eagerly awaiting the update. I got the June update OTA, but never received the August update. Maybe I’ll get every other one :)

Range seems to be the word for this update. I did not notice anything with the August update but this one seems to bring more substance :)

It's so bizarre to me that this software update page doesn't exist for the US Volvo site or it's been hidden somewhere.

We’re in Australia, but here’s how I found it - went into the user manual (I downloaded the app to my iPad) and when I open the manual, click on the 3 bars at top left of screen and it brings up main menu. Software updates link is near the bottom (as highlighted in pic here). It takes me to an external link - not sure where that is but maybe the US version doesn’t show that info.

Yeah, doing so in the US brings up the the Canadian site in the Volvo Manual app. I don't believe any "Software Updates" page exists on the Volvo USA site.

Yes- this link is for the Canadian page. I'm not saying we will not see this update in the US, just that this Software Updates page doesn't exist on the US Volvo web site.

I’m taking mine in for the sticky parking brake issue tomorrow morning and will ask about this update.
