2010 Volvo XC60 T6: 10-Digit Keypad, Have You Ever?

October 05, 2010

Our long-term 2010 Volvo XC60 T6 has a 10-digit keypad for making calls from your Bluetooth connected phone. Some Benz models also have this, but I'm not sure if they are phasing it out. I suppose this would come in handy for calling a restaurant or something that's not in your phone's address book.

But this keypad takes up a lot of space on the center stack. Most cars don't have this.

Too me it seems an anachronism -- like a cassette player.

My question is not if this necessary or even nice to have, but have you ever actually used a centerstack keypad to make a call? I never have.
