Land Rover iGuide, great interactive and informative owners manual for the new Discovery

Got tweeted about it this morning(Thank you Peter!) and checked it out immediately.  While just for the All-New Discovery now, it will be great to see how it expands across the "Range". 

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/land-rover-iguide/id1183433754?mt=8

Really informational and functional, using both the standard text/images and augmented reality to help advise.  Great use of FAQs too.

But as with most Land Rover stuff, little proofing/inconsistency when it comes to the text.  And they must not care because they rarely fix it.  The capitalization is all over the place when abbreviating their own features.  When they pull the content directly from the online manual it’s fine, when it’s used elsewhere it’s not.

What Intelligent Speed Limiter UX looks like on a 2017 Range Rover

my17-l405-isl-30

Described officially as such:

Traffic Sign Recognition and Intelligent Speed Limiter

Traffic Sign Recognition keeps you fully informed by displaying particular traffic signs in the instrument cluster where they can easily be seen.

The system is capable of detecting variable speed limits and, where it exists, navigation data is used to increase its effectiveness. The feature can also display overtaking restrictions.

When activated, our Intelligent Speed Limiter uses Traffic Sign Recognition information to adjust your car’s speed accordingly

Active Speed Limiter (ASL) has been a relatively long time feature for Jaguar Land Rover vehicles, when activated and a speed set via steering wheel controls, except for pedal kickdown, no matter how much you press the pedal it won’t accelerate past that set top speed.  Kickdown occurs when pressing the pedal all the way to the floor and then some.

The Intelligent Speed Limiter (ISL) builds on that using the traffic signs to automatically set the top speed.  You do have the option to add up to 6MPH to that top speed.  When changing modes from ASL to ISL the LIM icon gets the additional "i".

And when the gauge map display is turned on, you get this:

my17-l405-isl-gauges

HUD gets an icon too, you get the idea…

Here’s a link to the owners manual describing how to use it:

And here’s a paste of the content because of how bad the Land Rover site is when you use a link like that for the first time and have to select language/country and it can’t be bothered to remember where you wanted to go and it brings you back to the main page

INTELLIGENT SPEED LIMITER (ISL) CONTROLS

The ISL works in conjunction with the traffic sign recognition system and the navigation system to restrict the maximum vehicle speed. The maximum speed, is set based on the information received from both these systems. If the system cannot determine a valid maximum speed, ISL is deactivated and the Automatic Speed Limiter (ASL) is activated. See AUTOMATIC SPEED LIMITER (ASL) CONTROLS.

To switch the ISL on, press the LIM button on the center console. Depending on vehicle status, either the ASL or the ISL information lamp is displayed in the instrument panel. If ASL is displayed, press and hold the CANCEL button on the steering wheel. The ASL information lamp is replaced with the ISL information lamp to confirm that ISL has been selected. See INTELLIGENT SPEED LIMITER (ISL) (AMBER).

The ISL does not operate until activated. To activate the ISL, press the SET+ button or the RES button on the steering wheel. Detected speed limits are displayed as icons in the instrument panel and Head-Up Display (HUD). See HEAD-UP DISPLAY (HUD).

NOTES

The ISL can also be switched on and off via the Driver Assistance instrument panel menu. If cruise control is in operation, this option is grayed-out in the instrument panel. See INSTRUMENT PANEL MENU.

If the ISL detects a speed limit lower than the current vehicle speed, the system automatically slows the vehicle to meet the speed limit. Pressing the RES button on the steering wheel increases the rate of deceleration.

If the ISL detects a speed limit higher than the current vehicle speed, the system allows the driver to accelerate up to meet the speed limit. Pressing the RES button on the steering wheel increases the rate of acceleration.

To suspend ISL operation, press the CANCEL button on the steering wheel. To resume ISL operation, press the RES button or the SET+ button on the steering wheel.

When ISL is active, vehicle speed may increase in certain conditions, e.g., when traveling downhill. If the vehicle’s speed rises by more than 2 mph (3.5 km/h) above the ISL detected speed limit, a warning message is displayed in the message center. If the vehicle’s speed rises by more than 5 mph (7 km/h) above the ISL detected speed limit for 4 seconds, a chime also sounds.

The ISL detected speed limit can be overridden if rapid acceleration is required. Rapid acceleration is also known as kickdown.

If kickdown is required, the vehicle accelerates past the ISL detected speed limit. When the vehicle’s speed drops below the ISL detected speed limit, any speed limitations are reapplied.

The ISL detected speed limit can be adjusted, if required, to control the vehicle’s speed at just above or below the detected speed limit. To adjust the detected speed limit:

  1. Press the SET+ button to raise the maximum vehicle speed 1 mph (1.5 km/h) above the detected speed limit. The maximum increase available is 6 mph (10 km/h) above the detected speed limit. Press and hold the SET+ button to raise the maximum vehicle speed directly to 6 mph (10 km/h) above the detected speed limit.

  2. Press the button to lower the maximum vehicle speed 1 mph (1.5 km/h) below the detected speed limit. The maximum decrease available is 6 mph (10 km/h) below the detected speed limit. Press and hold the button to lower the maximum vehicle speed directly to 6 mph (10 km/h) below the detected speed limit.

WARNING

Speed limiters are convenience features only. Speed limiters do not remove the driver’s responsibility to adhere to the legal speed limit.

NOTES

Any adjustments to the ISL detected speed limit are lost if ASL is activated, or the vehicle’s ignition is switched off.

If the traffic sign recognition system cannot determine a valid speed limit, it displays – – –. If this occurs, the ISL remains set at the last known valid speed limit. If the traffic sign recognition system is unable to detect a valid speed limit within a short period of time, the ISL is deactivated. If this occurs, the ASL is activated.

ISL limitations:

The following ISL operating limitations apply:

  1. ISL performance and accuracy is only as good as the information provided to it by the traffic sign recognition system.

  2. ISL performance and accuracy is only as good as the information provided to it by the navigation system. Always make sure the system is operating correctly, and has the latest software.

  3. The maximum speed limit recognized by the ISL is 80 mph (130 km/h). For any detected speeds above this figure, the ISL sets an unlimited maximum speed.

  4. The minimum speed limit recognized by the ISL is 19 mph (30 km/h). For any detected speeds below this figure, the ISL sets a speed limit of 19 mph (30 km/h). The message LIMITER SET SPEED ABOVE SPEED LIMIT is displayed in the message center.

Further to my "Hit Settings Everywhere" in InControl Touch Pro, birds eye camera view now shows when reversing…

This was something I had seen on an F-Pace before but didn’t think it existed on Range Rover.  Again having thought I checked everywhere, I didn’t check in the most obvious place, the Settings screen for the feature itself when accessed with the main feature on-screen – as in, bring up the Cameras and then hit Settings and I found I could turn this on:

I wonder if I didn’t have 360 PDC, would the birds eye view move to the far side and the reverse camera view get wider?

Here’s what Landscape view looks like:
