    I believe it was the MY2018 refresh that brought the programmable Favorite button to the Range Rover steering wheel. Very functional button, even had two ways to access with a short or long press, each with a different function.

    The function list has always been limited but a quick way to Play/Pause is still perfect.

    For the All-New Range Rover, we get a new function – Cycle Cluster Layout

    The Range Rover has had a digital gauge cluster since the 2010 refresh – before it was even a thing. They didn’t start actually having fun with it until 2017 or so, when InControl Touch Pro happened. With ICTP, you could have the map displayed or various layout changes in the cluster itself. That was further tweaked for the MY2018 refresh. It was a couple of clicks to switch the gauge cluster layout, kind of buried in the menus, not something to do often.

    But for the All-New Range Rover, it looks like we’re getting a shortcut! So minor but glad to see they thought about it and implemented something.

    Just a list of what the app can do:

    The remote park assist feature allows the driver to perform a parking manoeuvre from outside of the vehicle using a smartphone.

    1. Remote parallel parking.
    2. Remote perpendicular parking.
    3. Remote parallel park exit.
    4. Remote perpendicular park exit.
    5. Direct forward or backward.

     

    This will be a $350 – $550 option for the 2023 model year.

    Interior door handle is shown in its rest state, 1. Partially pull the interior door handle halfway to position 2 on a closed door, then release. The power door opens.

    Pulling the interior door handle to its full extent (3) will unlatch the door manually. The door can then be opened manually.

    Walk–away Locking:

    The walk-away locking procedure initiates when a door is opened or closed. The vehicle locks when a smart key immediately adjacent to the outside of the opened door or within the vehicle moves beyond 2 m (78 in). Without driver intervention, the vehicle centrally locks and the alarm sensors activate once walk-away locking is complete. Walk-away locking also tracks any keys inside the vehicle to make sure they are seen externally before locking. Walk-away locking can be enabled or disabled via the Vehicle menu of System Settings

    Approach Unlocking:

    Approach unlocking automatically unlocks the doors on the approached side of the vehicle when the smart key is detected within 1.5 m (59 in) of the vehicle. The doors automatically unlock and door handles deploy on the approached side. Pulling either deployed handle will complete the unlocking and alarm disarming procedure. The unlocking and alarm disarm procedure is indicated by the side mirrors unfolding and direction indicators flashing the unlock flash sequence.

    If the vehicle is set to single point entry and only the driver’s door is opened, the vehicle will not unlock the passenger doors on the non-approached side. When the smart key is brought inside the vehicle, the rear driver’s side door will re-lock and its exterior door handle will retract.

    If the smart key is taken beyond 1.5m (59 in) of the side of the vehicle without pulling either handle, both doors will re-lock and their handles will retract. The vehicle reverts to its previous locked and alarmed state.

    If the smart key is inside the 1.5m (59 in) boundary for more than 40 seconds without a door handle being opened, the approach unlocking feature disables. Both doors will re-lock and their handles will retract. The vehicle reverts to its previous locked and alarmed state.

    Approach unlocking can be enabled or disabled via the Vehicle menu of System Settings.
