Updated Land Rover Discovery Sport Helps You Keep Track of Personal Belongings
The 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport is the car that never forgets thanks to the world-first integration of Tile’s advanced tracking app. Essentially, it’s an innovation to help people keep track where their belongings are. According to Land Rover, the average person spends 15 minutes a day searching for lost items.
Essentially, it uses small Bluetooth trackers which can be attached to important items and be tracked using existing smartphone technology. The Tile smartphone app is compatible with both Android and Apple platforms and the number of items that can be tracked is limitless.
Jaguar Land Rover is the first automotive company to integrate Tile with its in-car entertainment system. The partnership allows customers to establish a list of ‘Essentials’ using the vehicle touchscreen, which are always checked when the app is initiated. If items are lost inside the vehicle, customers are able to sound a 90-decibel alarm on the Tile tag, to help locate them.
Jaguar Land Rover’s updated InControl Touch Pro infotainment system is at the heart of the technological additions. The new set-up provides a larger 10.2-inch touchscreen and intuitive menus, replicating the look and feel of smartphone apps and allowing users to swipe and pinch, just as they would on a tablet.
The screen does not require any ‘hard’ buttons and provides a super-wide 21:9 format with higher resolution than the standard 8-inch touchscreen. In addition, the increased pixel-count provides superior clarity when using the dual-screen option, ensuring neither driver nor passenger sacrifices screen quality.
