Global Positioning System Module: Description and Operation
The global positioning system module (GPS) receives satellite signals to determine position.
The global positioning system module (GPS) is an option and is only used together with Volvo on Call and when the vehicle is equipped with
Multimedia module (MMM).
The Global positioning system module (GPS) is located under the left-hand seat.
The global positioning system has an antenna. This antenna is a combined antenna for GPS and the carphone.
The control module uses optical serial communication to communicate with other components on the MOST network. This means that all
communication with the Global positioning system module (GPS) is via the infotainment control module (ICM).
The control module checks input and output signals via an integrated diagnostic system. A diagnostic trouble code (DTC) is stored if the control module
detects an error. Any diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) are stored in the control module memory.
The information can be read off using the diagnostic tool.
For further information, also see Signal specifications.
The table below summarizes the input signals to and output signals from the global positioning system module (GPS).
The signal types are divided into directly connected signals and MOST communication.
The illustration below displays the same information with the Volvo component designations.
