Again right in front of our eyes – Range Rover Velar interior explained via Jaguar I-PACE

Three column display for InControl Touch Pro Next; below left is the I-PACE concept and right is from the Range Rove Velar teaser.  Broad strokes but obviously where they’re going.

The I-PACE "flightdeck" graphic also informs on some Velar guesses

Capacitive Switches; hidden-until-lit controls that do have haptic feedback when pressed.

Hey Land Rover, is it OWNER’S, OWNERS’ or OWNERS?

Can someone please grammatically advise – is it:

OWNER’S MANUAL?

OWNERS’ MANUAL?

OWNERS HANDBOOK?

While checking out the awesome new Land Rover iGuide app, I noticed that Land Rover writes it three different ways…  Image above shows it from new app, Land Rover website that features the app (but oddly doesn’t link to it) and the Land Rover official manuals website.

Finally found InControl Touch Pro Weather Live app settings so that Fahrenheit is used throughout

Since delivery, for some COMPLETELY UNEXPLAINABLE reason, the InControl Touch Pro Weather Live app used Fahrenheit on the side panel but Celsius when displayed full screen on a 2017 Range Rover.

My preference for Fahrenheit is chosen everywhere I could find prior to today.  The InControl website account, the car itself, and a few other places all set for Fahrenheit.  And as shown, it works fine for the side panel.

But the key for the fix that I found today while checking out another feature is simple (And apparently undocumented?)

Bring up the full screen Weather Live app then tap the Settings button (small double gear icon) then Weather Settings then configure from there.  A few taps and all is fixed.MY17-L405-Weather-Settings

Success:

MY17-L405-Weather-F

As I found, hitting that Settings button on every screen and then going into the contextual settings for the function displayed has helped find some things previously hidden to me.
