For newer Volvos with the 7″ Sensus screen, a new accessory is available which offers the convenience of internet browsing, navigation, email, and many other options. This may seem strange for safety conscious Volvo to be offering such a distracting system, but things are not as bad as they might seem. Volvo has included safeguards to limit use while the vehicle is being driven.
With Sensus Connected Touch you can browse the entire internet. The system is equipped with a built in browser that enables you to search for any information in almost any format: Java, HTML 5, animations and moving pictures/films. The browser is only enabled when standing still, and as soon as the driver exceeds a set speed limit, certain applications in the system labeled as distractions to the driver, will automatically be disabled. These applications are clearly marked disabled with a watermark icon.
