Which Android App? 20.5MY HSE

Post by BeardyBodge » Fri Nov 20, 2020 5:57 pm

Evening all, took delivery of a very lovely Eiger Grey 20.5MY D180 R-Dynamic HSE today. Been finding any and all excuses to drive it around and absolutely loving it. I've come from a Q5 and I'm pleasantly surprised all round.

Only thing frustrating me is the number of logins I had to create in the car! One for the SIM card data plan, one for the user profile (linked to key or phone) and then one to get the satnav going (InControl).

Now I'm wondering which Android App I'm supposed to use to access all the jazzy things like setting the climate from my phone. Couldn't find a clear answer in the LR documentation so I've come for some advice please. (There are a total of 8 different apps in the store :? )

I downloaded "Land Rover InControl Remote" but it doesn't recognise my login I created in the car when I setup the Nav and signed up to InControl. Any ideas please?

The iOS equivalent is Landrover Incontrol Remote

Pretty sure the android app is very similarly named.

Thanks for that. I've done a bit of digging now and turns out on Android "Land Rover InControl Remote" is the older and original version of the app. Which is now superceded by "Land Rover Remote".

The old one is on version 1.81 while the newer is 2.3.0.

As far as I can tell, the existence of both apps on the Google Play Store is down to some regions not being compatible with the newer app.

So I think I've cleared that up but now I can't get the app to link to the car haha! Probably down to no mobile signal here so will have to try again when I'm out.

I just discovered the little DS silhouette in the puddle lights! Nice touch...

Both versions of the remote app work for me. :)

All up and running perfectly now. Just needed to be parked somewhere with better signal.

The car performed family duties excellently today. Pushchair and kids bike much easier to chuck in the boot than it is in the Q5.
