Mirror your android phone in the infotainment unit

Post by mgwanderer » Fri Jul 31, 2020 4:06 pm

Is it possible to mirror your android phone in the infotainment unit. A lot of the competition can do just that, the Susuki Grand Vitara for instance. At least you can project a more up to date nave system into your unit real time.

I take it you've not got Android Auto installed?

The only other way was with the Land Rover apps option that cannot be added later and to be honest the number of apps is limited.

Hello Clive,

If you have the InControl Touch Pro system then you can get a free update to enable this. Not many car manufacturers have offered Android Auto and Apple CarPlay as a free upgrade. BMW, for instance, will charge you.

If you have the older InControl Touch system then no. But in its defence Android Auto didn’t exist in 2014 when InControl Touch came out. But there are aftermarket replacement head units.
