Land Rover has updated its InControl Touch Pro infotainment system which optimises in-car connectivity by providing faster responses and more intuitive operation.
Introduced from launch on the Range Rover Evoque Convertible, it now becomes available from the 2017 model year on all Evoque models and is standard for HSE Dynamic, HSE Dynamic Lux and Autobiography.
The touchscreen behaves like a smartphone or tablet with swipe, pan and pinch to zoom controls and provides a clearer 21:9 super-wide format with 1280×542 pixel resolution – an 80% increase over the Evoque's standard eight-inch touchscreen.
Using the Land Rover Route Planner smartphone app, destinations can be pre-planned and synced to the vehicle ready for easy selection. Touch Pro also offers door-to-door navigation – even after parking – handing over to the Route Planner phone app to display public transport and pedestrian directions to the final destination.
In Control Touch Pro can share customers' ETA with friends and family. If the driver is running later than expected, Touch Pro can automatically keep them informed by sending updates via SMS text messages.
Additional features include high definition 3D maps and a bird's eye view surround camera system allowing drivers to see the vehicle from above, ideal, the automaker said, for negotiating narrow streets or tight parking spaces.
