Hi, is this still for sale? (if it is, can you explain what exactly it does - I've googled it but Im not sure the difference between this and VIDA or a general 'OBD reader + iPhone app' combo.

Hi.. yes it still for sale - and this is what it can do
Well, its a trick little box that connects to the onboard computers and allows you program in some neat features common in newer cars (like the XC60 for example), but otherwise missing from the XC90.

It can connect via the OBD port (with a special slimline connector) or via the RTi system in the rear of the car, depending on what options your 90 is specced with. I plumped for the OBD connector, as it offers the most painless and quickest install option.


The unit itself is very sturdy and looks well made, about the size of a wallet with a serial connector on one end, and a USB input on the other.

To program the device, you need to download the desktop Sw from the Volvotech website and then download the latest Fw. They seem to release new Fw quite regularly, fixing bugs and offering new functionalities all the time.

The device will fit various Volvo models from over the years, and will offer different options dependant on your car - its neccessary to input your VIN so that the device knows what it can program.



-Global window opening from the key fob
-Global window closing from the key fob
-Extra courtesy lighting from the reverse lights
-Mirror dipping on reverse
-Remote diesel heater start from keyfob
-Dial sweep on ignition on
-Mirror auto-fold on door lock/unlock
-Extra DIM info, including:
--Fuel remaining in L
--Speed in kph and mph
--Engine revs, coolant temp, cabin temp
--0 to 60 speed logger
