    Since it's tied into the car's electronic systems, it would be good if the Android system could also pull error codes from the car's system during breakdowns/malfunctions and send them to the Volvo network to give technicians a heads up plus better feedback for the Volvo R&D.
    Maybe it already does this.

    Got this car ordered for delivery in the summer. Already has an earlier version of Android Auto built in and I'm glad to know that Google are going to be updating Android Auto throughout the time I have it, can't wait!

    2020 is too long of a timeframe, 2019 could be understandable.
