19A to 19A2 InControl Touch Pro Over The Air Update on a USA 2017 Range Rover

Some first hand pics of the InControl Touch Pro SOTA process.

Dealer updated 2017 Range Rover from 18C to 19A then turned on SOTA.  This appeared first time getting in car after those updates:

ICTP-19A-Available

Then hit Install now:

ICTP-19A2-Downloading

Then after a couple of minutes:

ICTP-19A2-Installing

Then about 30 minutes later:

ICTP-19A2-Install-On-Shutdown

Then I followed Step 9 from the SOTA instructions:

9) When the touchscreen shows that the Installation is complete, exit and lock the vehicle, allowing it to shut down for a minimum of 7minutes.

But after waiting 15 minutes it still hadn’t installed.  So I waited and tried again and got this:

ICTP-19A2-Up-To-Date

There was a pop-down that said it had updated but I didn’t have the camera ready for that. 

That’s that, upgraded S19A_19.07.2-312706 to S19A_19.11.4-330884 over the air

Finally–how to check which USB MIP/UIP is compatible with the Smartphone Pack upgrade

MIP-UIP-JLR

Checking the ports in the center armrest panel (MIP/UIP) of your Jaguar Land Rover vehicle MY17+:

A – NOT eligible for Smartphone Pack upgrade

B or C – Eligible for Smartphone Pack upgrade

Rather than the obscure confusing language, JLR should have released this graphic months ago.

**These ports alone do not indicate Smartphone Pack compatibility but they were the most confusing part of checking eligibility which also requires: 10.2” screen, Pro Services & Connect Pro, including WiFi
