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.

Cause
Service Compliance Notification JLRP00052v2 has been issued to support the introduction of the new InControl Touch Pro system to the Jaguar and Land Rover ranges, this is an extension of the existing X351 MY16 InControl Touch Pro Nerve centre to further the scope of support across model lines. The central JLR team will again form a Nerve Centre to promote rapid identification and resolution of customer concerns. 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)

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}

Thanks to the always resourceful members at rangerovers.net, here’s the NA marketing bulletin for the 2016 Holland & Holland Range Rover.  It’s like a SVAutobiography Autobiography (yes, double Autobiography)

Never thought we’d actually see this over here, can’t wait to see it in real life.

Possibly the best paragraph in the whole document:

If you do not provide shot gun size details at the time of order / Step 3 of the Order
Process, it will not be possible to provide customized gun case inserts matching your
customers specific shotguns. Customization will not be possible once the vehicle has left
the SVO build facility.
