Wi-Fi Hotspot delivers a 3G/LTE (depending on model) Wi-Fi hotspot in your car. Wi-Fi Hotspot enables passengers to connect up to 8 devices to the Internet using an in-car 3G/LTE connection. It utilises the roof mounted antenna increasing the reliability of continuous connection whilst on the move. It delivers better data connection strength (compared to a smartphone in the vehicle) as the metal structure of the vehicle can restrict data reception. In addition to the hardware fitted to the vehicle, you will have to purchase a mobile SIM card and insert it in the SIM card reader located in your vehicle.
Yes. The system requires a separate 3G SIM card with a data plan/allowance to work. The system provides mobile internet in the car for Wi-Fi capable devices such as mobile phones, tablets etc. In many ways it operates in a similar way to a "3G dongle".
Yes, your SIM should have a data allowance for your Wi-Fi Hotspot to work. Voice only SIMs (as used on some mobile phones) cannot deliver data.
This depends on the mobile service provider and type of the plan you have. Some providers offer "shared plans" where you can get an additional SIM for your Wi-Fi Hotspot and attach it to your shared plan. This means that your Wi-Fi Hotspot and your mobile phone consume the data from the shared allowance and you will get 1 bill.
EE for example offers a shared data plan http://shop.ee.co.uk/sharer-details/samsung_galaxy_ace_3_black_and_sim
Wi-Fi Hotspot operates on 3G/LTE networks.
Wi-Fi Hotspot operates through a mobile phone network. It will deliver a better data connection than a smartphone in the vehicle, but will not operate in areas where no mobile phone network exists.
You need a "Data only SIM card". Sometimes these are called "Internet only SIM" or "Mobile broadband SIM". This will be a different SIM card to that fitted in your mobile phone. For Touch 17MY, the required SIM card is a 2FF standard SIM card, while for Touch Pro and Touch 18MY a 3FF micro SIM card is needed.
At present Jaguar Land Rover does not have a preferred data plan provider. You can obtain a “Data only SIM card” from a variety of sources. Data SIMs and plans are available from all major mobile service providers.
At present Wi-Fi Hotspot is a linked feature with Connect/Connect Pro. Wi-Fi Hotspot can only be specified on vehicles fitted with Connect/Connect Pro.
A Connect subscription is needed in order to access the Remote Premium features. Currently it is only possible to have Connect on your vehicle if it is selected when the vehicle is ordered.
The Remote Lock feature allows you to remotely lock your vehicle with the click of a button. You will be required to enter your InControl PIN for your request to be processed. Pressing the "Lock" button on the Vehicle Security screen of the Remote Premium smartphone app will single lock the doors (so that the vehicle can still be opened from the inside), arm the alarm, fold in the wing mirrors and close the windows.
No, the Remote Lock feature will not close the sunroof.
Certain Remote Premium features may be disabled in the Remote Premium smartphone app when factors prohibiting the use of those features are detected. When attempting to use a disabled Remote Premium feature, you will be presented with an error message explaining why the button is currently disabled for example:
InControl Remote Smartphone App operations will only be able to be processed if a number of vehicle pre-conditions are met. The vehicle will check these pre-conditions before attempting to process any requested remote operations. If any of these pre-conditions are not met, an error message will be displayed on the InControl Remote Smartphone App informing you of the reason for the specific error.
The Beep and Flash feature allows you to easily and quickly locate your vehicle. Pressing the “Beep & Flash” button on the landing screen of the Remote Premium smartphone app will activate the dipped headlights, the hazard lights and an audible alert.
No, the Remote Lock feature will not close the F-TYPE Convertible roof.
The Remote Unlock feature allows you to remotely unlock the driver's door of your vehicle with the click of a button. You will be required to enter your InControl PIN for your request to be processed. Pressing the "Unlock" button on the Vehicle Security screen of the Remote Premium smartphone app will unfold the wing mirrors, turn on the dipped headlights and cause the hazard lights to flash twice. For security reasons, the driver's door will automatically re-lock if not opened within 45 seconds.
The Alarm Reset feature allows you to reset the vehicle alarm from your smartphone when it is sounding. If the alarm of your vehicle is triggered, a pop-up screen with an option to reset the alarm will appear on the Remote Premium smartphone app. The alarm may also be reset via the Vehicle Security screen.
In order to execute a Remote Climate operation the conditions below must be met otherwise an error message will be displayed:
The vehicle must be able to engage the park brake.
The engine temperature must be between -30°C and 117°C.
No error with any required vehicle system has been detected.
In addition, the Remote Climate feature will not function if:
The vehicle is unlocked.
A window, door, boot, or bonnet is open.
The hazard warning lights are turned on.
The vehicle is being used by someone. For example, a person inside the vehicle is interacting with essential systems such as the break pedal, accelerator or start-stop button.
Once you start the car after using the Remote Climate function from the Remote smartphone app, the climate settings will default back to the temperature set up during the last car cycle, so the temperature on the car display will not sync with the app value.
Once you’ve downloaded the Remote app to your iPhone, follow Apple’s instructions on how to download apps to the Apple Watch at https://support.apple.com/HT204784
You can set and adjust your vehicle’s temperature from your Apple Watch. For safety reasons, if your vehicle is unlocked when you activate Remote Climate Control from the Remote Premium app on your Apple Watch, your vehicle will automatically lock before starting the engine.
The Journeys function is only available in the InControl Remote app on your iPhone, or via the My Jaguar InControl web portal.
