Range Rover Audio Integrated Apple CarPlay - photo from 2013 Evoque Pure
Range Rover Audio Integrated Android Auto - on that same Evoque.
As Apple CarPlay / Android auto are available for latest models from car manufacturers, most of 'near new' or recent models are left with same / similar looking Infotainment screen systems, yet missing out Apple CarPlay features and can't be updated.
Whilst those brand new vehicles from Land Rover / Range Rover and Jaguar still do not come with Android Auto nor Apple CarPlay, which must be mentioned that they do come with their own version of it-
Those previous series models without any sort of phone link tech, are missing out so much compared to other vehicles with Android auto or Apple CarPlay.
Consider a Mitsubishi Mirage, which is almost 1/5 price of Range Rover Evoque:
Comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as a standard feature for most of trim models , quite lots of LR / RR owners are devastated with the fact that the car still not coming with those features.
From us, Naviplus team, after testing and discussing with few of our previous customers who had Range Rover / Land Rover vehicles with Touch screen infotainment:
We've developed and launched the Apple CarPlay / Android Auto Integration, for
Range Rover / Land Rover from 2012 (MY13) to current models.
Currently available for:
Land Rover Discovery 4 from 2013 to 2016 (end of it's series)
Land Rover Freelander II from 2013 to 2015
Range Rover / Sports from 2013 to 2016
Range Rover Evoque from 2012 to 2016
Those above with 3rd Gen Touch Screen infotainment audio:
Without change nor removal of anything from the vehicle, we provide complete retrofit of Apple CarPlay / Android auto to the existing headunit.
Which will result with Apple CarPlay / Android Auto system to be displayed on the same audio that came with the vehicle.
Just like any standard CarPlay or Android Auto : It will come with dedicated USB port for connection of iPhone or android devices, which will power up Apple CarPlay / Android Auto accordingly.
Also, for Range Rover / Land Rover vehicles mentioned above:
Even though they may have similar / same design audio interface, some are missing out Navigation menu with actual Navigation function, whilst some have Navigation installed already.
And for those vehicles with Navigation NOT Fitted: It will bring back the Navigation menu & icon to the home screen upon installation of our Apple CarPlay / Android Auto.
Whereas if the vehicle already has a Navigation, then those features will replace the Navigation -call function, allowing either CarPlay or Andtroid Auto to be displayed on the screen instead of Factory fitted GPS.
CONTROL of the smartphone & apps on the audio Screen.
If you still need to use your phone while driving, at least use it through car audio screen with full control of essential features, via touching the screen or use voice command via Siri & Google.
Here's what you will find in the Apple CarPlay / Android Auto once those meets with your cars - with Naviplus's Integration service.
