Got in and see it said READY in green text on the top right, not sure what that means, nothing in the manual for it as far as I can see. Any ideas?

Also any way to know if you’ve gotten an update? Maybe related ... anything is possible

Actual OTA updates for the car software will be quite noticable - based on what I've read from Polestar users. They're supposed to download in the background while you're driving. When downloaded you'll get a notification on the console and some big scary warnings saying it will take 90 minutes, your car will be inoperable for that time, need at least a 40% minimum charge, do not plug in your charger during this time or you'll brick your car, etc. You'll need to confirm before installing the update.

I don't believe XC40 owners have seen ANY OTA updates from Volvo yet. The most recent update (built March 18, released April 27) had to be dealer-installed. The only "updates" I've seen have been from Google - for Maps, Assistant, and Play Store apps.

It sounds like it’s a

“ hey stop texting/sleeping/eating/not paying attention as the car In front has driven off “ warnings sound

This sounds nifty. Going to turn it on tomorrow. Alas it means being a d!ck to test it but for science ….

Are you talking about this? Pretty sure it shows this every time I put the car into gear.
