All new Land Rover vehicles offer Land Rover Apple CarPlay™ as a standard feature, or as an upgrade with the optional Smartphone Pack. The technology lets you connect a smartphone with the InControl® touchscreen interface, empowering you to enjoy your favorite music and apps on every drive through Edgewater or Crofton.

Whether your model comes equipped with Touch Pro™, Touch Pro™ Duo, or the new PIVI Pro™ system, Land Rover Apple CarPlay™ will make all your adventures more enjoyable.

How to Set Up Apple CarPlay™ in a Land Rover

Before you learn how to set up Apple CarPlay™ in your Land Rover, make sure that your device is compatible. You’ll need an iPhone 5 or a more recent model, and you’ll need to be running iOS 7.1 or above.

Once you’ve determined that you’re good to go, follow these steps to connect your Apple smartphone to your Land Rover:

  1. Navigate to settings, and make sure that both Siri and CarPlay™ are turned on.
  2. Using an Apple Lightning cable, plug your iPhone into one of your Land Rover vehicle’s USB ports.
  3. A prompt should appear immediately on your primary touchscreen. Select ‘yes’ to launch the feature.
  4. Unlock your iPhone, and you should see another prompt. Press “allow” to complete the connection.

To take advantage of your new features, switch from the standard Land Rover interface to the Apple CarPlay™ interface by pressing the CarPlay™ button on your touchscreen, whenever your device is plugged in.

What Can You Do with Land Rover Apple CarPlay™?

Drivers love Apple CarPlay™ because it syncs your in-vehicle entertainment interface with the playlists, apps, and features that you already use every day! Here’s what stands out to most users:

  • Connecting with Siri™ makes it even easier to control your features. Just summon Siri with your voice by holding the voice control button on the steering wheel.
  • Enjoy your favorite entertainment app on the go. Options include Tidal, Stitcher, Amazon Radio, Google Play Music, Pandora, Audible, and more.
  • Catch up on the news or your favorite sports team with apps including News+, At Bat, SiriusXM Radio, and more.
  • Navigate more conveniently with your choice of more than a dozen different map apps. Whether you’re a Google Maps, Apple Maps, or Waze user, you’ll love what Apple CarPlay™ can do.

Apple CarPlay™ is also compatible with all the apps that come standard in your Land Rover vehicle, so you don’t lose anything by connecting your smartphone.
