A. PTI stands for Personal Telephone Integration, a fully integrated hands-free mobile phone system for your car via a Bluetooth link or cradle in the centre console (note cradle availability was deleted from 08MY).
A. Bluetooth is the name for a short-range radio frequency (RF) technology that operates at 2.4 GHz and is capable of transmitting voice and data wirelessly. The effective range of Bluetooth devices is 32 feet (10 metres) and Bluetooth transfers data of a rate of 1 Mbps.
Bluetooth connection gives greater convenience but gives a reduced feature set over that available when a phone is docked in the cradle.
A. Bluetooth brand is named after the Danish King Harold 'Bluetooth' Blaatand who unified Denmark and Norway. In the beginning of the Bluetooth wireless technology era, Bluetooth was aimed at unifying the telecom and computing industries.
A. Both – the phone is tested and confirmed as compatible only with current software levels so it is essential to check that your phone has the correct software
A. No – Land Rover have only tested the models listed as compatible and can only recommend these as suitable handsets for the PTI / Bluetooth system.
A. This defines the standard specifications agreed by the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) who defined how Bluetooth would work in the automotive sector. Early phones were not developed in line with the defined specification.
A. Yes – how this is done varies by phone manufacturer and guidelines will be provided within material posted on this website. Contacting the phone retailer or visiting the phone manufacturers will provide information for obtaining upgraded software.
A. The initial list of phones covers current models that provide the level of vehicle functionality and integration required. Further phones will be approved and periodically added to the list.
A. This is currently planned to be about every three months.
A. It may work, or work partially, however Land Rover cannot guarantee the level of operation
A. The level of integration with the vehicle controls and PTI / Bluetooth features including phonebook transfer facility is competitive with other vehicle manufacture's Handsfree options. The cradle solution (when fitted) allows such features as SMS on the Range Rover.
A. Yes, for a phone in the cradle and newer vehicle models (check compatibility lists).
A. The accessory system does not allow use of the vehicle touch screen or keypad, but does give voice interaction. This is a standalone accessory system.
A. It is located in the centre console between the front two seats under the armrest.
A. No – However, 12V in-car charging leads can be purchased from any phone store.
A. Yes it can be located anywhere in the cabin. Whilst it may function from the boot (trunk), Land Rover do not recommend this, as the signal may be weaker in this enclosed environment.
A. The phone handset will show a "car" or "headset" symbol to indicate it is in handsfree profile. Also, when in phone mode, the audio head unit or touch screen will confirm a phone is correctly connected via the cradle. This screen will show the network operator name and signal strength if the phone is registered to the network. If a phone is not registered to the network, "No Network" will be shown. If a phone is not connected correctly to the cradle, the audio head unit or touch screen will display "Phone Not Fitted" in the phone screen as detailed in the vehicle handbook.
A. When in phone mode the audio head unit or touch screen will display "Bluetooth" or a telephone handset symbol as detailed in the vehicle handbook. Due to a limitation of Bluetooth, the signal strength is not displayed on the vehicle display. Also, the phone handset will show a "car" or "headset" symbol to indicate it is in handsfree profile.
A. Yes – Although if a phone that is switched off is connected to the cradle, it will automatically switch on.
A. Please refer to Pairing Guide for full details.
A. Multiple phones can be paired, please refer to your specific vehicle handbook for further information. This list is in order of last connected phone, with the last connected phone at the top. Only one phone can be connected at any one time.
A. Yes. When a phone is connected to the cradle, the Bluetooth connection will disconnect. A cradle phone has priority over a Bluetooth phone.
A. Every time you come back to the car, it should automatically reconnect to the paired phone. However, this depends on the phone settings and handset compatibility. Please check the pairing and connection guide for details. The vehicle will automatically search for the last connected Bluetooth phone when the ignition is switch on and no phone is attached to the cradle. If the last connected Bluetooth phone is in range (and set to accept connections), the vehicle and phone will connect. If the last connected phone is not in range, the vehicle will search for the next phone on the device list.
A. No, pairing need only be done once, and then the phone can be connected/disconnected as frequently as the customer wishes. It is recommended that the customer keeps the phone battery charged at all times – some phones turn Bluetooth off automatically when the phone battery gets low.
A. Yes, this can be done by following the phone handset instructions (refer to phone manufacturers guide) or connection instructions provided by Land Rover.
A. This is limited only by the number of entries that the phone/SIM card can store. Voice Nametags in the Voice System however, are stored in the vehicle and are limited to approximately 50 entries. See compatibility list for further information.
