Adds new functions to, - and automates functions in a Volvo without making any changes to your Volvo!
How does it work
The CFE Plus Wifi (Unit) needs configuration to make sure the Unit knows what Volvo it is going to be used in and what and how functions should work.
This configuration is performed with the updater software (License included, directly available after purchase), installed and run on a PC with at least Windows 8.
The Unit needs to be connected to the PC with a Configuration and USB cable (Both supplied in the set).
Once you finalized the configuration and all functions are setup with the desired options; the CFE Plus Wifi can be connected to your Volvo.
The Unit connects to the Can-busses (Networks) in your Volvo and acts like an additional ECU (Computer).
To avoid possible mistakes in configuration, the Unit starts an "Initialization" after first Ignition (Made visible to the user by enabling the blue high-beam light in the dashboard while the initialization process is going on) and tries to match the made configuration with the actual Volvo.
If all matches the Initialization will finish and the Unit is ready for operation.
Now the CFE Plus is ready to perform its tasks.
For example; if you lock your Volvo with the keyfob, the CFE Plus will notice this on the Canbus and decide to close the windows for you.
Besides the normal CFE Plus functionality; the WiFi board in the CFE Plus WiFi allows you to connect a WiFi enabled device (like a mobile phone, a tablet or even a Raspberry Pi) to the CFE Plus WiFi.
If will allow you to view engine (an other) data (live) in several different formats, in a web-browser. Just as you like, just as you want it yourself.
The source of the example HTML is open-source, available for you, available for changes, we challenge you to make the nicest and share that in the different Volvo related fora!

For now it is data-pull from CFE Plus WiFi only, but tests have already proven that 2-way data works fine!
We'll continue working on new data to get available; you might find a certain value not available for your Volvo, in such case enter a bug report and we'll add it asap!

|Low and High speed Canbus||Product is connected to both low speed and high speed Canbus. MY2001-2004 require a manual connection set to create an additional OBD2 port, connected to the Volvo's wiring. (OBD2 port in MY2001-2004 not available for continuous use in those particular model-years, resulting in the CFE Plus WiFi not being operational as well in the ODB2 port!)|
|WiFi||Product allows connection trough WiFi to allow live data to be displayed on a smartphone (or similar),.|
|Open, in full development, new functions and bug fixes||Product still in full active development. Expect new features and bug fixes.|
|Reverse camera guide lines|
|Static (Can be enabled or disabled at install)||If the CFE Plus WiFi is used for controlling (reverse)-camera logic (P3 Volvo's only!) the optional camera offers static parking lines indicating object distance to the Volvo and direction the car is moving towards when reversing.|
|Sensus / Sensus Connect menu options|
|OEM camera function(s) in menu||If the CFE Plus WiFi is used for controlling (reverse)-camera logic (P3 Volvo's only!) the OEM camera menu in the Volvo will be enabled by the CFE Plus logic, enabling the driver to select the front-camera by a push on the button-location where normally the camera button would be. Pressing the "ok" button after that displays the menu. The (with OEM installation available) zoom-functions do not work in such case.|
