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:

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.

2017 Range Rover Remote Climate rises bread! Just wish it would actually start the car in a timely manner(or at all)…

Finally getting something that officially remotely starts a Range Rover sounds great in concept!

Here’s a fun official video from Land Rover’s Hibernot series, they may need to add a disclaimer that video was accelerated for film:

These screens are more common for me but luckily I rarely double my car as a proof box:
