What exactly is the point of all these updates? It doesn't appear to get any better, and boy does it NEED to be better.

Tnx for the notification, although I tend to open https://www.volvocars.com/hr/support/do ... spa/europe quite often :)
What's the point of all these updates? Well, there are thousands of new roads and especially roundabouts built across the Europe each month, so every update is a good one. Perhaps you should call your representative if there were no new roads in your hometown built lately.

I was mainly referring to Sensus inability to recognise many small towns and villages in rural Devon which Google maps has no problem with (navigation is the main purpose of a sat nav).
I think I'd know if a new roundabout appeared in front of me.

I agree with you ropetko the mapping on Sensus is very poor and doesn’t inspire confidence, after 3 years of waiting for it to get better I gave up and had smartphone integration installed so now I have Waze and TomTom Go to rely on.

Completely agree - Google maps or Waze are both much better that the provided satnav. I'm hoping MY23 xc40 will have full google maps integration (not just via applecar play)

I think mapping relies on available data. I live in Croatia and sadly we don't have RTTI available for Sensus, so I sometimes use Google Maps on my smartphone just to decide which way to go during rush hours.
However, once there's a new road or a new roundabout available around the place I live or travel often to, it doesn't take more than a couple of months for it to appear in Sensus. I can also travel to the smallest village and find its address in Sensus, so it is probably a matter of local data provider.

Tried installing this update (from a USB stick) twice this afternoon - failed both times. It said it was submitting an error report. The download phase succeeded but the installation failed.

Update
-----------

Tried again yesterday - failed twice but, after the second failure, it now says that 1380 is installed. Confused.

Mine is also on 1380. No idea when it updated. Not something I care too much about. It still shows a petrol station down the road which closed at least 5 years ago..
