What’s this new option under Connectivity on the Range Rover Velar?  Android device settings?

Ovalnews Mock-up 2017, Is this what The Range Rover could look like with InControl Touch Pro Duo?

Photoshop’s Perspective Warp really helped to make this mock-up.  I know it’s not perfect and there is plenty to nitpick but the general concepts are there – InControl Touch Pro Duo, Steering Wheel Controls, Gauge graphic from Velar, Removed controls rear of Rotary Gear Selector.  I was going to stick a Land Rover logo on there but couldn’t get a version I liked.

Here’s my mock-up from July 2015 showing what we thought ICTP would look like in the Range Rover.  When it finally showed up in 2017 it was quite close…

Apparently those ‘Magic’ Rotary Switches aren’t so magical in the USA…

DOT regulations probably don’t allow for magic, I assumed it was just hyperbole.

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:

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.
