    Exclamation New Infotainment Upgrade w/ Apple CarPlay from Land Rover?!

    Hey y'all.

    I know this has been beaten to death on this forum however I just saw a FB post today that there was a new infotainment upgrade from Land Rover. According to this guy, Rich, he took his 2017 RRS in for a service and received the upgrade free of charge because he said it was part of the service plan.

    Does anybody have any information on this upgrade? Will it work on 2016? Lastly, was there a charge for the upgrade?

    Coworker of mine attempted to get his dealer to install CarPlay in his Velar. Dealer wants to charge him $399 for the software upload because it didn’t come standard with the Velar at purchase.

    I took the wife's 2017 RRS SCV8 in for its standard electronic issues and when I got the car back, the infotainment system was new. I didn't request the upgrade, they just did it.
    highlights
    - now the home page is not customizable block instead it is 3 fixed blocks, Entertainment, Nav and Phone
    -the navigation does not have the enter address by state, town, street, house number. Now you just type in the address in a "search field" and it will find it on its own. Frustrating if you did it the old way for 2 years to try and figure it out.

    other than that, it seems to work ok. Not ground breaking but better.

    I believe if you hold your finger down on the home screen for a while it will unlock a new area to customize what shows up on the home screen. You can also rename it.
