Land Rover’s award-winning InControl system offers a suite of connected entertainment and car infotainment features that put the world at your fingertips. Operated by a Touchscreen within the vehicle and/or via selected apps installed on your smartphone, the suite of digital features are designed to enhance your driving experience. Here’s 10 ways it'll help out.
1. You can check your fuel levels... from your living room
The InControl Remote app on your smartphone not only tells you how full your fuel tank is, but also how far your vehicle will take you. The app will also show you if your vehicle is secured – the alarm is on, all the doors, the windows, the boot and bonnet are closed – if not, you can lock it remotely using your smartphone or smart device.
2. Help is always at hand
Should you need the emergency services, they can be notified of your whereabouts and other vital information, either automatically or via the touch of a button with the SOS Emergency Call feature. Alongside this is the Land Rover Optimised Assistance button. When pressed, it’ll connect you to the Land Rover Assistance team who’ll have automatically obtained vehicle and location details. If your issue cannot be resolved via the call, roadside assistance will be sent to your location.
A variety of apps can be downloaded to your InControl infotainment system to improve your driving experience.
3. Help is at hand if you can't find your car in a huge car park
Been away for two weeks and can’t remember where you’ve parked your Land Rover? Your InControl Remote app includes a ‘Last Parked’ feature that’ll tell you where your car is parked, and give you directions to it. Remote also allows you to ready your vehicle for your arrival by activating features such as Climate Control or Intelligent Seat Fold technology, meaning when you reach your vehicle you can get in and go.
4. Expense claims headaches are a thing of the past
If you opt in for Remote Essentials, you are able to see vehicle data, such a journey details, remotely on the InControl Portal and Remote app. When the time comes to file your expense claims, simply email the relevant business journeys across and enjoy the reduction of paperwork.
5. Your very best chance of finding a parking space
InControl supports Parkopedia, an app that currently lists over 38 million parking spaces in 52 countries. So whether you’re looking for street-only parking or garages that accept credit cards for payment, Parkopedia will find it. Best of all, in specific countries, you can see space availability in real time.
6. Your car will listen to you
The Just Drive app allows hands-free speech control across a variety of apps. This means you can send a tweet or text message, request a song or radio station – without using a keypad.
The Spotify for InControl app lets you access all of your music with ease.
7. Entertainment at your fingertips
Created in partnership with the streaming service, Spotify for InControl brings you a library of more than 30 million songs, right into your vehicle.
The interface works as it would on your smartphone and lets you search new songs and access your library and recommendations. There’s even an offline mode to make sure the music doesn’t stop if your internet connection does.
8. Your car can be tracked if it is stolen
As an optional extra, your InControl system can trigger a silent alarm to alert the authorities if your vehicle is broken into and it can also track the vehicle until it is recovered.
These alerts work through the same network as Connected Car technology, meaning as long as you have a working 3G signal you will receive these alerts.
9. Provides real time updates on your journey
Enhanced by Connect Pro, Navigation Pro learns the routes you regularly take and provides up-to-date information about your route, updates you with information on traffic ahead and even amends your ETA if necessary.
10. Stay connected while you're on the move
With in-car access to a 4G Hotspot for up to 8 devices, your passengers can keep busy with work, play or entertainment on long journeys. InControl Wi-Fi utilises a roof-mounted antenna to increase the reliability of connection while on the move - meaning that where 4G is available, you'll get a stronger data connection compared to a smartphone.
