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.

LAND ROVER PUTS WORLD-FIRST INTELLIGENT SEAT FOLD TECHNOLOGY TO EXTREME TEST… REMOTELY
World-renowned British adventurer and well-known Land Rover owner Bear Grylls took to the skies to put the New Discovery’s Intelligent Seat Fold technology to the ultimate test. The system allows Discovery owners to configure their vehicle seating through the InControl Remote app on their smartphone from anywhere in the world – even in mid-air.
Having jumped from a plane with six members of the Royal Navy Parachute Display Team and freefalling at 125mph, Bear was able to change the vehicle’s seating layout at the touch of a button on his smartphone before he had to deploy his parachute.
Once on the ground all the skydivers were able to jump into a camouflaged prototype of the New Discovery, which comfortably seats seven full-sized adults.
The world-first Intelligent Seat Fold technology allows the two rear rows of seats to be fully reconfigured in as as little as 14 seconds via the InControl Remote app downloaded on any iOS or Android operating system.
