Land Rover InControl Apps enables you to use vehicle optimised smartphone apps on the vehicle's touch screen by connecting your smartphone with a USB cable to the dedicated InControl Apps USB port. Once connected, the apps on the vehicle's touch screen have the same look and feel as they do on your smartphone. A variety of approved vehicle optimised apps such as: Contacts, Calendar and Music Player will be available, with more third party vehicle optimised apps becoming compatible over time for a continually fresh and personal user experience. Your smartphone will also be charged through the USB cable.

Really Land Rover?
I spent $80K on a vehicle that doesn’t even have an integrated entertainment system as good as a Hyundai! I travel and rent cars lots. These days if I plug my iPhone into the USB connector of the rental car 99 times out of 100 I can control the entertainment - Pandora or Apple Music - direct from the car’s console. Nope, not in my Range Rover Sport.
I love the vehicle for the ride through all kinds of nasty conditions - snow, ice, rain...but I am nearly forced to listen to the radio like I were stuck in the 90’s. Come in Land Rover! Outsource your software development to people who know how to do it. Stick to designing and manufacturing cars and let professionals implement what has already been used by dozens of car companies around the world.
I am just hoping that someday there will magically be a software update that makes this all better...if not it is the very last Range Rover I’ll buy!
Terrible app in a great car
I love my Evoque: it got me through rain, snow storms, icy roads. But while 2 years ago I could plug in my iPhone and enjoy music, it now came to a point that I'm not able to connect at all: not through USB or Bluetooth. The only thing I can periodically achieve is plug in the phone, manually open up music album and project it through car's stereo system, while interface reads "Unknown title, Unknown artist". After recent app update I was hoping for some improvement, but nothing changed. I finally deleted the app. Have to stick with satellite radio!!
I don't know how much of this is Apple fault, since I'm not able to sync the phone on my Corvette's CarPlay either: it crashes the interface and both companies blame each other. But at least Bluetooth connection works ( sort of).
Still trying to get this app to work...
Goes without saying that the LR/Jaguar systems are behind other systems offered. Regardless, I am still trying to get my iPhone 7+ running the most current iOS to work with InControl Apps after setting up my new 2018 RR three months ago.
The most recent frustration is that since an iOS update was rolled out two weeks ago, the InControl App cycles repeatedly and never is stabilized on my RR. Currently I have abandoned the USB connection and am using the phones bluetooth connection for all functions. Please look and make another attempt to update the InControl App so that it works again with my iPhone. While always klugey, the connectivity broke when Apple released its iOS update in mid-July 2018.
Thank you in advance for getting this right.
