2010 Range Rover – Rear Seat Entertainment – Front Supervisor Screen

I never realized how controllable the RSE system is, you can select the source and send it to the appropriate screen and even mix and match the audio & video sources indivdually – this is the front Supervisor screen which has full control over what the people in the back are seeing, if you lock a setting in here, the rear remote control cannot bypass that setting.


2010 Range Rover – Front Screen DVD Controls

Although this screen is only good while the car is in Park , the new layout is interesting.  While this is graphically better then the current version, I wonder how many of the current annoyances made it through?


And just an FYI with regard to how to get the video to play on the front screen – direct from the owner’s manual:

DVD selection
DVD programmes can be viewed on the front screen while the vehicle is stationary. The park brake must be engaged and Neutral selected.  Alternatively set the transmission in Park position. As soon as one of these conditions change the view will revert to a non DVD screen. A speed inhibit feature will disable the DVD preview display at a factory set speed.

2010 Range Rover – Auto high beam

This function automatically selects high beam, if ambient light levels are sufficiently low and
no oncoming or preceding vehicles are within operational range.

Note: It is recommended not to use auto high beam whilst driving off-road.

This function is only active if the lamps master switch is in the  AUTO position and the stalk is in the central position. The system will only activate when the vehicle reaches 25 mph (40 km/h). The system will deactivate when the vehicle’s speed drops below 15 mph (24 km/h).

Note: Auto high beam does not operate when reverse gear is selected.

Auto high beam can only be considered as a convenience feature and in certain circumstances the driver will be required to intervene.  To manually over-ride the feAHBature to high beam, move the stalk to the high beam position as normal. To over-ride the feature to low beam (from high beam only) operate the stalk to the ‘flash’ position and the feature will be cancelled. To re-enable the feature operate the stalk to high beam and back to the central position.

An indicator in the instrument panel illuminates when auto high beam is enabled.
Note: The following circumstances could affect the auto high beam function:
– Highly reflective road signs.
– Vehicles with dim lamps. e.g. bicycles, etc.
– Adverse weather conditions.
– Dirty sensor.
– Dirty, damaged or misted windscreen.

It remains the driver’s responsibility to ensure correct use of the headlamps at all times.
To turn off the auto high beam feature, move the lamps master switch from the AUTO
position to the headlamps on position.

Note: The auto high beam feature is controlled by a sensor in the rear-view mirror.

Ensure that the sensor is not blocked by objects or stickers placed on the windscreen.
