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.

Ratings and Reviews
Tragic - great car let down but inconsistent and flawed tech
If you have even used an original iPad that is how ‘responsive’ the touch screen is. Hopelessly slow and frankly dangerous to drive with. You can’t tell if the unit is responded to your touch and it takes 2 seconds to respond. This is so far from Apple Play ( which I loved on our recent rented car) Land Rover chose to do their own thing and it’s a dud. I have been back to have my software reinstalled twice (can’t be done by Wi-fi and takes 2 hours!) The Land Rover ‘tech guru’ was very nice but admitted many of my complaints (phone does not connect consistently) apps hang are known issues. I was sent a letter saying things would be better with iOS 11 and LR app update but as the other review show they are still not. Owned the car over 7 months and hugely frustrated. I dream of Apple Play...
Update: The app keeps being updated with “improvements and bug fixes” however this app is still hopeless. Feel free to respond Land Rover, it is not like I can just write of my £75k expenditure! Anyone reading these reviews will steer clear of a purchase surely you wish to respond?
Update: New app update and I see the have added Slovenian! Handy for some but it still doesn’t yet work with iOS11 and no doubt will be worse with iOS12. Sigh...
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 !!
4x4 system world class, InControl system bottom of the class
JLR need to bring in some expertise in this area of development for their vehicles. InControl is a step up from the previous, almost unusable, system. There is no point having a better design if the functionality is lacking. Response speed remains an issue. Yes, we are all used to swish, intuitive and fast reactions from our smart phones - but JLR are missing a trick here: not all (in fact I’d say just a few) LR owner are technology luddites. I’m nearly 50, this first generation who started using PC’s (MS-DOS!!!) so are fully engaged with the technology revolution - it’s about time JLR joined the Movement.
