Can you get the misses to drive it and then we can see if it updates in real time …

Pretty please :)
It does not track the car when driving - but any time it stops and you happen to open the map on the app it shows where the car was last stopped.
I believe having the map and showing the car location is likely a first step in getting the driving journal in place - so that may come with the next update in the future.

Maybe, but until it can do the log, I don’t see much utility with the map. Others above pointed out that if another person drives it, you can see where the car is (a poor man’s LoJack!). And that would be helpful if you have kids driving it or you want to spy on your spouse who is driving it! Otherwise, it’s not a great feature, but maybe they will build upon it to make it more useful than any other map on your phone.

And when you park it yourself and forget where you Parked it …

Would love to say that never happened but …

Yes, can confirm it does.

I wonder why we don't get a lot of the features in the Australian version?

Also, in my app it doesn't display the right model and colour the car in the top down view. It seems the older cars do, but not the 2023 models. Small and inconsequential thing, but an odd one.
Doesn't show the correct model and colour of m 2023 model in Germany either

Or your car is at the panel beaters after a car park bingle and you can actually see it has been moved 200km away to another specialist repairer. Very interesting and helpful

Ooh that would be fascinating.

Some folks take mileage on their cars before dropping off to see if it got borrowed.

Luckily for me my service center is awesome.

Happy Thanksgiving Volvo. Just received the updated 5.21.1 version with map capability for Android this morning.
Even though it's not Thanksgiving in Canada today (we had ours a month ago), we have plenty of Black Friday sales and now the 5.21.1 update (Google version), just in time to drive across the border to the US, where it is Thanksgiving.
