What’s New

Exterior
-Two new paint colors
  -Eiger Grey (replacing Corris Grey)
  -Portofino Blue (replacing Loire Blue)
-Black Pack Availability
  -032EI will now be available on Range Rover trim levels for the first time, previously Black Pack was only available for HSE & Supercharged models.
-The Black Pack is available with three choices of black wheel:
-029TN: 21” Style 9001, 9 spoke, Gloss Black
-031NY: 22” Style 9012, 9 spoke, Gloss Black
-031YM 22" Style 5004, 5 split-spoke, Gloss Black
-Please refer to page 20 for pricing for each derivative
-Badges
-From 2020 model year, similar to Range Rover Velar and Range Rover Sport all Range Rover derivatives (excluding SV products) will carry a trim level badge and a power output badge prefixed with P or D depending on the fuel type.
-For example: the existing 254hp TDV6 will be badged as the D260 along with the trim level badge.
-Supercharged models will now have “P525 HSE” on the rear tailgate of the vehicle.
-Shadow Walnut is now the standard fit trim finisher for Range Rover, HSE & Supercharged derivatives.

-Reductions to Option Complexity
-CD/DVD Player now linked to Rear Seat Entertainment
-Feedback from our retailers and customers has highlighted that there is an expectation that the RSE option should also include the CD/DVD player.
-Removal of 8” Rear Seat Entertainment
-This feature has been removed due to low take rates at 18MY and 19MY. The low take rate of 8” RSE is partially driven by improvements in the functionality of the 10.2” screens and 8” RSE not being available with Executive Class seats.
-The Entertainment pack has now been updated to include the 10.2” RSE rather than the 8” RSE.
-Removal of Gesture Sunblind
-Customer feedback was that this feature was rarely used and could be inadvertently activated by reaching to adjust the rear view mirror. Customer impact is minimal as the physical buttons that adjust the sunblind will remain,as will the auto open/close function when the engine is started and stopped.
-Autobiography Seating Choices
-300LZ is now available for Autobiography models, this offers customers the 24way front seat with the rear bench seat to give customers a viable alternative to Executive Rear Seating without degrading front seat comfort. As a result,the previous alternative seat, 300LY will no longer be available for ATB models.
-Smoker’s Pack
-Due to low take rates for the front smokers’ pack, we removed the fronts mokers’ pack option, leaving only the front and rear smokers’ pack.

New Ingenium 6 cylinder Engines in 355hp & 395hp outputs.

19A to 19A2 InControl Touch Pro Over The Air Update on a USA 2017 Range Rover

Some first hand pics of the InControl Touch Pro SOTA process.

Dealer updated 2017 Range Rover from 18C to 19A then turned on SOTA.  This appeared first time getting in car after those updates:

ICTP-19A-Available

Then hit Install now:

ICTP-19A2-Downloading

Then after a couple of minutes:

ICTP-19A2-Installing

Then about 30 minutes later:

ICTP-19A2-Install-On-Shutdown

Then I followed Step 9 from the SOTA instructions:

9) When the touchscreen shows that the Installation is complete, exit and lock the vehicle, allowing it to shut down for a minimum of 7minutes.

But after waiting 15 minutes it still hadn’t installed.  So I waited and tried again and got this:

ICTP-19A2-Up-To-Date

There was a pop-down that said it had updated but I didn’t have the camera ready for that. 

That’s that, upgraded S19A_19.07.2-312706 to S19A_19.11.4-330884 over the air

JLR PSA: Don’t remote start your vehicle and expect CarPlay to work, seen on 2017 & 2018 models with 18C

Since 18C went wide, I’ve read more and more people saying that CarPlay doesn’t work properly if you try to use it after remote starting the car via the mediocre Land Rover Remote app. 

Last night I saw it first hand, and it’s even worse than it seemed.

no-carplay

After the fifth attempt of killing and restarting the app on my phone, signing in and out, it telling me my PIN was incorrect (it wasn’t), it FINALLY started the vehicle remotely.  Further info – my phone had a good internet connection and when I got back to the car it had full 3G service.  Entire process just continues to be horrible – embarrassingly bad and a real joke.

20181207_022543000_iOS

Anyway – I get in car that’s been running tap the brake to tell car I’m physically there.  Then I connect the phone for CarPlay – CarPlay logo appears on iPhone quickly and dreaded pop-down user-unfriendly message appears on Range Rover screen ‘Apple CarPlay’ not available.  All modern JLR owners have seen this type of message at one time or another. 

So at this point the system is confused – I get the CarPlay icon on the bottom toolbar which means I lose standard phone functions, the media input screen also lists CarPlay but won’t switch to it.  I got an incoming call and couldn’t answer it hands-free because of this.  And then had to leave the iPhone unplugged from the vehicle so it wouldn’t keep thinking it was on CarPlay.  What if my battery was low and I needed to charge it via the car but also needed it to actually work?

Do you think the engineers who didn’t test anything before shipping it thought that since the Remote Start is so bad, there’s a slim chance a user would hit this bug and try to use CarPlay?  Or did they not even test these scenarios and this is all a surprise?

This system has always had odd issues for me when using it after a Remote Start.  Sometimes the cameras wouldn’t work, sometimes you’d just get a black screen.  Those bugs seem to have been resolved for me at least.

And there it is (part 2), CarPlay in a North American 2017 Range Rover

Thanks Paul!
