International Land Rover site shows Apple CarPlay Option Pack for new Discovery

With a tip from a reader earlier today we saw the Smartphone Pack option available to add to the build of a new Discovery.  At first I didn’t see it on the USA or UK site but when accessing through the Land Rover International home page, which often does have things you don’t normally see, we find the new option pack that adds Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. 

Both are described as such and yes even the Android Auto screen says “Simply connect your iPhone”:

A simple and intuitive interface. Designed to minimise distraction so that you can stay focused on the road. Simply connect your iPhone via USB and control compatible apps on the in-car Touchscreen.

Jaguar Land Rover has been on the CarPlay list since its inception but never shipped in a vehicle.  We even found Apple CarPlay icons in an early InControl Touch Pro build.

 

Does this mean it’s really coming this time?
