Jaguar Offers Apple CarPlay
Apple and Android users are in for a treat! Jaguar Land Rover recently announced the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto on select 2019 models with JLR’s InControl Touch Pro or Touch Pro Duo infotainment systems with navigation, InControl apps and Wi-Fi as a part of the Smartphone Pack. Early reports indicate USB ports are also a factor in Smartphone Pack compatibility for 2019. Smartphone Pack is standard on Jaguar I-PACE.
Both smartphone mirroring systems allow drivers to interact with key mobile apps through the vehicle’s touchscreen. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are simple and intuitive interfaces designed to minimize distraction while driving. Common apps include maps, music, phone, and messages. Certain functionality can even be controlled via the vehicle’s Voice Control, providing for additional convenience.
Even better news for existing Jaguar drivers is the Smartphone Pack can be retro-fitted on select 16, 17, 18, & 19 model year Jaguar vehicles. Jaguar Palm Beach is currently offering upgrades on select models.
