I took the plunge and came away from top of the range Audi’s for the last 20 years.
Spent £107,000 on what is a lovely looking great to drive - but a pile of technological poo - sorry JLR but the first 6 months I could live with the constant non functioning in car bits and lived Day by Day pinning hope of development with the update for the 30,000 issues that JLR concluded with the In Control software -promised for May / June / July then finally after not giving me a date - I was told come in and we will put you the latest test update in Oct - nothing has changed - not for the best that’s for sure - in fact Apple evolved with IOS11 and the Bluetooth With JLR can’t cope with it ! ! Now connects less than ever dropping back to the phone speaker while still connected more than ever - but it’s ok JLR are working on it !! IOS13 will be available by the time they fix 11 - guys please buy in some German Technology and don’t be embarrassed as you make a great strong well over priced top end 4 x 4 - stick to that and use an Audi or a Merc system for the other bits - it may stop people like me trying to back the car I dreamed off back after less than 9 months !!
Very poor for a car costing £75k
Poor and unreliable. The car frequently either does not connect with the phone or randomly disconnects and can’t find it again. My car has been back to the dealer twice to have these issues resolved without success. It does t seem to matter what version of iOS or app you have. Speaking to fellow landrover owners it seems to be a common theme.
Even when the app suit works, the apps are poor. There is better functionality for controlling music through the Bluetooth connection. No simple way to listen to podcasts or Apple audio books. The other apps that can be installed are also a bit of a con. Whilst free on the phone, they require fees to be paid before they can be used through the car interface.
In summary, landrover should be ashamed. It’s not a patch on Apple CarPlay and more akin to something I’d expect on a low budget end car, not from a premium luxury brand.
Probably the worst IT I have encountered in a car.....
For the best part of four years, I have been telling Land Rover that they are MMI system is rubbish. I have had various excuses such as intermittent fault or an upgrade is due, and four years later I have a system that doesn’t work and there are too many glitches to list. I love this brand and the discovery sport is a gorgeous car to look at. But I cannot believe how poor the technology is. I cannot do the things that I need to do when I’m driving and it distracts me too much, which is dangerous, therefore I just don’t use it.
When you add in that the car failed its first MOT because of rust (yes, you did read that correct), which Land Rover say is acceptable (yes, you also read that correct), then it’s time to give up on Land Rover as a premium brand.
I wish I had never deserted Audi, as you cannot fault the German build quality.
