    Default How to keep computer settings?

    Greetings from Finland! (my first post here)

    I have driven 23 000 km now with my XC without any problems, but one detail kinda annoys me;

    If I choose to follow the current consumption on the on-board-computer, it'll be wiped out when I turn the engine off, and has to be recalled every time.

    The reason why I became interested in this is, that I somehow managed to keep the readings even when turning the engine off, but haven't been able to replicate that

    Any ideas?

    I "think" that if you stop and start the engine in a shortish period of time, you won't have to call up the trip computer again - but I may be wrong...

    This annoys me a lot as well...

    The latest rumour from Sweden is that in October, Volvo is going to release a software update to fix this.

    So ask your local dealer next month

    Default Sounds good...

    I'll be very happy if this does happen...

    I have a similar problem on my XC70.

    I always have the trip computer set to show how many miles are left until I need to refuel, but when I restart the car the trip computer is always set to blank, so I have to change it to the view I want. Ok so it's only one click (if I remember to turn the knob the right way) but still a little annoying.

    I saw a technical bulletin on the volvotechinfo website that seemed to be related to this (RTJ18230). Does anyone else still have this problem, and does anyone know whether Volvo issued a fix for it? I can ask my dealer but always good to know if anyone has managed to get this rectified?

    Thanks
