#9 of 18 Navigation System losing location
Jul 29, 2009 (3:29 pm)
We have a 2005 XC90 V8 with Volvo Navigation system. We have updated the maps every year. In the last few months the system just looses where we are and sometimes it will relocate us on the GPS but other times we have to shut the sytem down and it may not re-locate our position for a day or two (which is frustrating when travelling!). We also purchased a Garmin to take with us in case...Has anyone else had problems like this with the Volvo Nav system? We re going to take it in to the dealer to check it out, I am sure it should be covered on our Extended Volvo TotalCare Warranty, at least I hope since it comes fro the factory! Anyone else had this problem with their Nav system? Thanks!

I would really appreciate any input about my built-in Nav screen on my 2003 XC90.
I tried the dash board dimmer and the NAV settings for screen brightness and it can not get it back from what appears to be 60% of what the screen brightness used to be.

Did you ever get this resolved? I have a similar issue.

"With its chic styling and sporty performance, the XC60 goes a long way in transfomring Volvo's image, while the vehicle's pioneering safety technology reinforces that the company is still the leader in this area, which other automakers have been moving in on of late. If only the vehicle's other tech wasn't as hit and miss, then the XC60 would be an unqualified hit."

Did you receive an answer? I have a 2006 XC90 and having a similar problem.
The dealer updated the firmware, but still having the same issue. I am taking it back to dealer so they can try again. Do you know if the nav system is covered by the standard 4 year 48000 mile warranty?

Yes, we have it too. We're meeting with an RVP of Volvo today. We've already replace the lights once. Asked dealer for used parts. They claimed they were destroyed in the replacement process. Intermittent behavior now, sometimes on, sometimes off.
#16 of 18 Replace factory NAV?
Oct 14, 2010 (5:22 pm)
The factory NAV DVD player on my 2003 Xc90 T6 with 110K miles is now displaying "can not read disc."
I am told that Vovlo replaces and does not repair and to replace the DVD player would be about $850 including unit, synchronizing and labor. Ouch... my plan to keep this car for a long time is failing miserably since just about everything you can imagine (and can't imagine ie... dashboard for $600+) has broken on this car and has cost me about $12k in repairs out of warranty.
Should I dump the car for a Japanese model or keep maintaining this one?
Does anybody have any experience replacing the NAV with a non-volvo model? An isntaller told me that he could put in a $500 NAV system with many more features than teh Volvo and might be able to fit the new smaller screen in the same area wher the screen rises up now.

I too have this issue. The dealer wants over $800 to replace the NAV DVD player which I can't see spending when a $150 portable GARMIN does the trick. Has anyone found a cheaper alternative?
