Hei fs,
Mine is HU-601....m also eager to know what is that. But the one below the temp **** is ECC aka ELECTRONIC CLIMATE CONTROL. Is a sensor that does the climate reading. Do not block it. Hope this helps. Pls see pix below. BTW does your HU-801plays CD-R (recordable disc)...just asking ?

Another curious cat here! WTH does that little window thing do? Mine also has them on the bottom of my mirror which i assume are day / night sensors so the review mirror turns on the anti-glare at night time? I don't know? Can someone please shed a little light on this for us?

Mine also plays CD-R but I have never tried CD-RW's in mine. Does your 601 play CD-R?

Hello there killa cam,
1) My HU-601 can't play CD-R at all it only plays OEM CD's :-( BTW r u also using HU-801 coz i tot of upgrading the whole radio unit.
2) Thatlittle window is called TEMPERATURE SENSOR
3) As for the mirrors...yes you r rite...they are day & nite sensors that turns on the anti glare at night time (very clever design by volvo)

Hello fs,
That one is called PANEL ILLUMINATION SENSOR. It will auto adjust the daylights itself when u r driving through a tunnel. The panel lights will be brighter or dimmer depending on the weather. Hope this helps :-)

Glad we got all that cleared up! I knew the little vent window was the temp / climate control sensor thanks to Tech but wasn't sure about the others for sure. Thanks again for clearing it all up!

Yes my S80 has the 801 in it
