Hi everyone,

I dropped by a dealer for a test drive and got some updates on CarPlay that I thought of sharing with this super helpful community.

According to the dealer, the update is coming anytime now. MY19s build sheet (I haven't seen yet - I will reconfirm in few days) now do have an option for adding CarPlay (~$300).

The dealer was positive that it can be retrofitted into MY18's with an optional module. For MY19's, according to the dealer, the hardware should already be there in the cars and will be a matter of OTA update.

Short version: There's hope but the wait is not over yet.

Thank you for your update ByronBlue. If you speak with your dealer again will you please inquire about retrofitting CarPlay for '17s.

@jmod77 - I talked to the dealer today and the dealer was pretty non-committal on CarPlay. He maintains CarPlay can be retrofitted to earlier vehicles including MY17 however when I placed my order for MY19, nothing showed up on build sheet, so it's back to square one.

@ByronBlue, well thank you for the update. A MY19 will be the most likely candidate for an easy retrofit. You can keep checking to add it until your cut off spec date. I imagine it is more of a LR / Apple contract negotiation issue rather than a software issue, fingers crossed.

It looks like the 18C update to ICTP will enable AirPlay and Android Auto. I have the Phse 4 software running version 18B at the moment. Phase 4 has the over-the-air “check for update” feature. As of this morning, i did not see an update when I checked.

As 2017 on vehicles run the same ICTP software, I would imagine the features will apply to 2017 and on vehicles.

don't believe your dealer about future products/announcements. Land Rover gives them conflicting information on a weekly basis.
