just got the email below from JLR, looks like Over The Air software updates are finally coming! see below for some further information I got via email:
INTRODUCING WIRELESS SOFTWARE UPDATES FOR YOUR LAND ROVER
In the next few months we’ll be launching our first wireless software update for your vehicle. Software updates* provide a way of updating core software on your vehicle at your convenience in order to maintain and improve its capabilities without the need to visit a retailer.
Initial software updates cover minor bug fixes in the infotainment system to improve the performance and functionality however further releases will include updates to your Land Rover’s Telematics system. When an update becomes available, you will receive a pop-up notification on the infotainment - you can also check for updates through the Settings Menu.
EASY TO ACTIVATE
In order to receive software updates, you will need this feature switched on in your vehicle. This can be done through the Settings Menu > Software Updates > On/Off - you'll also need to accept the terms and conditions.
HOW TO INSTALL
Depending on your connectivity, there are two ways in which your vehicle can receive the update:
Through Wi-Fi connectivity
If your vehicle is already connected to Wi-Fi, it will use your connection to download the software update prior to installation.
Through your personal SIM connectivity
If your vehicle is not connected to Wi-Fi, it will download the software through your personal SIM.
When the 'Software Update' notification appears on your screen, you have three options available:
1. Install now – this will immediately start the download in the background, so you can continue your journey uninterrupted.
2. Remind me later – the notification will pop up again after six hours.
3. Skip update – this will remove the notification completely. If you later decide you’d like to install the update, you’ll need to do this via your settings.
Once the update has installed, you’ll receive a notification at the top of your screen. Likewise, you’ll also be notified if the download has failed.
For more information regarding software updates or for general help with trouble-shooting, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.
