This release includes a new application – ‘Activation of Smartphone Pack’. This application allows the activation of 3 smartphone integration technologies – Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Baidu CarLife.
Baidu CarLife is intended for the Chinese market only. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto availability will also depend on vehicle region.
The Smartphone Pack application is only compatible with InControl Touch Pro software version 18C or later. This application will prompt users to update the InControl Touch Pro software if required.

And as long as we’re here, the Land Rover USA website now lists the option, it only took a year.

InControl Touch Pro on the F-Pace and what we might expect for Land Rover #kindred

Some great minutia videos from an F-Pace Forum member, who coincidently turns out to be a "neighbor" of mine(I can see where I live when he brings up his route planning map).

Full list here, and a few to check out right now…

With the lowest of hopes, I can comfortably say that InControl Touch Pro well exceeds expectations.
