2012 Volvo S60 Long-Term Road Test


2012 Volvo S60 T5: You Are...Where?

It's a good thing I know my town pretty well, else if I relied on our 2012 Volvo S60 T5's nav to get around, I'd be in trouble. I mean, check out that map. No street names, at least not on every street or even every other street when I want to look three streets ahead. What's the name of that street I'm approaching? Its thickness implies it's a major street so shouldn't its name at least be displayed?

When I rooted around the nav system's menu to see if there was perhaps an option I can switch on for street names, I only found this.

That I can tick off a box to show the name of the current road I'm on. The navigation guide didn't clear things up either. Seems that this nav system is notoriously vague, at least according to online forums and other reviews. Unless there's something that I'm (we're) missing. Any S60 owners care to clear this up?

Otherwise what's the point of having a map without street names?
