Land Rover iGuide, great interactive and informative owners manual for the new Discovery

Got tweeted about it this morning(Thank you Peter!) and checked it out immediately.  While just for the All-New Discovery now, it will be great to see how it expands across the "Range". 

https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/land-rover-iguide/id1183433754?mt=8

Really informational and functional, using both the standard text/images and augmented reality to help advise.  Great use of FAQs too.

But as with most Land Rover stuff, little proofing/inconsistency when it comes to the text.  And they must not care because they rarely fix it.  The capitalization is all over the place when abbreviating their own features.  When they pull the content directly from the online manual it’s fine, when it’s used elsewhere it’s not.
