    Android link into new Volvo

    Just watching the BBC news at 1 - New phones at the Barcelona phone expo - links directly into an Android interface in the V40! I assume this will be available across the range.

    Nice!

    Though most have spent the equivalent of a new V40 on their cars! Still at least we're original, seem soulless these new volvos?? Shame!

    It's either 300 pm on a new 'box' or 300 pm on keeping ours going (and the extra petrol).....personal prefereance I suppose.

    It appealled to me to show that the marque is keeping up with the times. In a couple of years I may well treat the missus to the new V40 or V60 hybrid.
