JLR-Pathfinder30

PATHFINDER Software Release – 0030, dated 8/2017

Applies to:
17MY Range Rover / L405
17MY Range Rover Sport / L494
17MY Discovery / L462
18MY Range Rover Velar / L560

This update includes the following enhancements to InControl Touch Pro:

Improvements to the system. This is to address concerns relating to the touch screen being blank following a vehicle restart after an immediate shutdown.

Improvements to the camera system. This is to resolve concerns relating to the message ‘Camera system not available, consult your Dealer’ displaying when reverse gear is selected.

Improvements to Bluetooth phone call handling. This is to address concerns relating to Bluetooth audio sound not muting or lowering when receiving phone calls, and the navigation guidance overriding the phone call audio.

Improvements to voice commands. This is to address concerns relating to the feedback accent not being heard when using voice commands, and the selection of phone categories when using voice commands in Spanish.

Improvements to the navigation system. This is to address concerns relating to the navigation guidance continuing after reaching the destination, and the navigation system forgetting the destination and returning to the default screen. This will also address concerns where the navigation icon is displayed but not usable (Japanese vehicles only).

Improvements to media handling. This is to resolve concerns relating to the user being unable to switch the audio source, and the tune scan displaying indefinitely (SDARS only).

InControl Touch Pro Duo shown in recent Official LR Sunshade Install Guide

The install guide (creation date 8/8/17) for the Sunshade (Part No. VPLGS0487) uses an interesting version of the Range Rover interior…

The red arrows point to the updated steering wheel controls and the flush mounted touchscreen, along with the lack of physical buttons on the lower InControl Touch Pro Duo screen.  All very similar to the InControl Touch Pro Duo system in the all-new Range Rover Velar.

Range Rover Velar cargo capacity, which is it? 650L ≈ 24cu ft not 34cu ft. But all other capacity UK/US conversions match – why?

It looks like it’s something with the UK/US conversion.

650 liters seems to equate to ~23 cu ft. And 650L is how they present it in UK literature when vehicle doesn’t have full-size spare. Further to the conversion, UK site says with all rear seats folded and without full-size spare, space is 1690L. 1690L is ~60 cu ft, which does match US brochure and website.

The ~650L number is the same for both F-Pace and Velar on their respective UK websites. But for US market both show ~34 cu ft in various locations.

So it’s probably part marketing, part typo, part some different US capacity formula that makes 10 cu ft manifest?
