InControl Touch Pro demo videos, still unavailable on Range Rover in 2016

Not sure why they all need the same 22-second pre-roll – they’re not TV shows, just one to six minute instructional videos.  My only reasoning is that maybe it’s to make us think it’s a sitcom because of how funny it is that none of these features are still available on a real Range Rover in 2016.

InControl Touch Pro – Nerve Centre Support? For Range Rover & Range Rover Sport?

Great find on the rangerovers.net board seems to indicate InControl Touch Pro is coming to Discovery Sport, Range Rover, Range Rover Evoque (already announced) & Range Rover Sport.  The X351 referenced is the 2016 Jaguar XJ, which got the 8” InControl Touch Pro system in its latest refresh.

This process is effective from the moment you receive your first vehicle, and will run until further notice. All global markets will receive Nerve Centre focus during the launch phase, and your National Sales Company & Importer technical staff will be invited into the forum to keep abreast of the very latest technical fixes.

Range Rover Evoque Convertible finally brings InControl Touch Pro to a Land Rover (might still be vaporware)

2016-Range-Rover-Evoque-Convertible (9)

After years of waiting, the Range Rover Evoque Convertible is a really here for MY17.  There are very few details that were new – they took the concept and updated it with the MY16 Evoque refresh plus a bit more: the addition of the 10.2” InControl Touch Pro system to a Land Rover is a welcome surprise.  All pictures & official PR to follow below but really I only care about the vaporware aka InControl Touch Pro. 

It looks like the Evoque isn’t also getting the 12.3” digital gauge display that Range Rover proper has had since 2010 (But done NOTHING interesting with anyway).  And the do still love to call 3G state of the art for a MY2017 vehicle {eyeroll}
