First Over the Air Update: InControl Touch Pro 19A2 has arrived: Version S19A_19.11.4-330884

No idea when we’ll actually start seeing it appear in the vehicles but it’s a start.  There’s talk on a few JLR forums about getting OTA or SOTA turned on shortly.  Further to that, new bulletins have appeared on TOPIx referencing Software Over The Air (SOTA).

Interesting article from JLR detailing the SOTA testing:

Finally–how to check which USB MIP/UIP is compatible with the Smartphone Pack upgrade

MIP-UIP-JLR

Checking the ports in the center armrest panel (MIP/UIP) of your Jaguar Land Rover vehicle MY17+:

A – NOT eligible for Smartphone Pack upgrade

B or C – Eligible for Smartphone Pack upgrade

Rather than the obscure confusing language, JLR should have released this graphic months ago.

**These ports alone do not indicate Smartphone Pack compatibility but they were the most confusing part of checking eligibility which also requires: 10.2” screen, Pro Services & Connect Pro, including WiFi

Do not unwrap until 2019

Can’t wait to see what December 27th brings…fromlandroverdonotunwrapuntil2019-resize-1024x1024

Oddly but very much in line with their process – the official media links for the above image swapped the high- and low- res images – or at least the resizes – ever so confusing…

Further the image itself was so low-res and I’m not sure if that’s actually on purpose or just another lack of attention to detail.
