Q: WHY CAN’T I SWITCH THE MAP VIEW TO NORTH-UP?
A: Based on user research, we designed InControl Touch Pro’s navigation system around direction-up view. The vast majority of users prefer this view, because it provides an easier at-a-glance interpretation of the road as it unfolds ahead. We felt that aligning other map views to direction-up eliminated any potential confusion.
Direction-up view can be combined with north-up to display your current position and destination in context of the remaining route or complete route. Additionally, searches are always shown in north-up view to provide the context of your current location to the destination. A temporary north-up option is also available when browsing the map.
Q: HOW DO I SELECT 3D MAP VIEW IN THE VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT DISPLAY?
A: Press the Menu button on the steering wheel to bring up the Settings menu. Then select the Display Settings menu and tap ‘maps’.
Q: WHY DOES THE VIRTUAL INSTRUMENT DISPLAY DEFAULT BACK TO INSTRUMENT DIAL VIEW BETWEEN JOURNEYS?
A: To keep you fully up-to-date with your car’s status regarding fuel, oil levels and any other important notifications.
If the Display Settings menu is not shown, scroll through the sub menus until you see the ‘map’ option – this should already be highlighted. Click on OK to select.
Once the map appears in the Virtual Instrument Display, close the menu by holding down the left select button.
Q: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE VARIOUS ROUTE OPTIONS DISPLAYED?
A: The first route is always the quickest based on real time traffic information. If traffic conditions change during your journey, the system will automatically re-route you. If you select the second or third option (assuming additional route options were available) and traffic conditions worsen, the system will alert you to a faster alternative – press ‘OK” to update the current route. There’s usually no difference in journey time between the second and third route option.
Q: OCCASIONALLY THE SPEED LIMIT INFORMATION DISPLAYED ON THE NAVIGATION SYSTEM DOES NOT MATCH THAT SHOWN ON THE ACTUAL ROAD SIGNS, WHY IS THIS?
A: If your car is fitted with Traffic Sign Recognition, a combination of information contained in the on-board map database and visible road signs is displayed. However, in certain situations a road sign may not be visible to your car’s cameras – for example, if the road sign is located near a junction on a side road.
If your car hasn’t been fitted with Traffic Sign Recognition then speed limits shown are based on the information available when the on-board map database was compiled.
While every effort is taken to provide accurate information, the responsibility for obeying traffic regulations remains firmly with the driver.
Q: WHY DOES THE NAVIGATION MAP STOP MOVING WHEN I USE THE PINCH TO ZOOM GESTURE?
A: As soon as you interact with the map it changes to ‘Explore’ mode, which allows you to locate places and check the route or traffic in the local area etc. ‘Explore’ mode also includes an option to view the map in ‘north-up’ mode.
The map will automatically return to ‘guidance’ mode after 60 seconds or when you press the back key or tap the navigation arrow. Map View is based on the last used 2D, 3D or satellite map option.
Q: HOW MANY WAYPOINTS CAN I CREATE ALONG A ROUTE?
A: You can create up to 10 waypoints along the route including your destination. These are sequenced in the order you add them. To reorder your waypoints, simply tap the menu icon in the lower corner of the map, and select Edit.
Q: IN ‘GUIDANCE’ MODE, CAN I CUSTOMISE WHICH ALERTS APPEAR ON THE SIDE OF THE MAP?
A: Yes, you can customise which alerts are shown by going to Settings > Navigation settings > Alerts. You can also tap on any alert to dismiss it.
Q: WHY IS THE HOMESCREEN SHOWING AN ESTIMATED TIME OF ARRIVAL (ETA) FOR A DESTINATION THAT I HAVEN’T SELECTED?
A: If you’ve enabled ‘Commutes’ in the navigation settings menu, the destination will be a ‘commute’ learnt from your current location and time of day. The navigation system predicts that this may be your potential destination and the ETA corresponds to this.
With commutes enabled, the system can provide your ETA even if you haven’t set a destination – keeping you informed about any potential issues on your preferred route. If you sometimes drive an alternative route to the same destination, the system will learn this too. When more than one route has been learnt for the same destination, the system displays the quickest route and ETA based on current conditions.
When you begin your journey it will display as a line on the map, but will not read out turn-by-turn instructions – it assumes you know the route. If traffic conditions worsen however, and you deviate from your current route, and from any other routes you’ve previously taken to this destination – the system will ask if you would like to switch to turn-by-turn guidance. This can be especially useful if you’re in an unfamiliar location.
Q: HOW MANY JOURNEYS DO I NEED TO MAKE TO THE SAME DESTINATION BEFORE THE COMMUTE FEATURE LEARNS THE JOURNEY?
A: It generally requires two journeys to the same destination from the same start point before a ‘commute’ is learnt. The current time must also be within +/- 1 hour of the learnt start time.
Q: HOW DO I SET A DESTINATION?
A: There are a number of different ways to set a destination with InControl Touch Pro.
1. To access the ‘Set Destination’ option screen from the homescreen, tap the ‘Set Destination’ icon on the navigation tile. This will take you directly to the search screen where you can enter a postcode, address or place name in a single line.
2. Jaguar XJ drivers can tap the navigation button in the row of hard switches – while drivers of other cars can tap the Navigation icon at the bottom of the Touchscreen twice. This provides a shortcut to the destination settings screen. From here you can select one of three options, Address Entry (including postcode), Search or Destinations. Destinations can be Home, Recent destinations, Favourite destinations, Shared destinations or Commutes.
3. When a commute is available it will be displayed on the homescreen navigation tile. If more than one commute is available based on your current location and time of day, it will display ‘commutes available’. Tapping on the navigation tile takes you directly to a list of the available commutes.
4. Alternatively, select a destination from the map screen, and tap the menu button in the bottom corner of the map. Again the three destination options, Address, Search and Destinations will be shown.
5. You can also send places or destinations to your car via the InControl Route Planner smartphone app or website. A place ‘saved’ in the Route Planner will appear in your favourite destinations once your car has connected to the Internet and synched the destinations.
If Navigation is open on the screen when a new destination is received from the Route Planner, the destination will appear as a pop-up panel. Tapping ‘use now’ will confirm the destination in the in-car navigation system. Places set as a destination via the Route Planner appear in recent destinations.
Q: WHY HASN’T THE DESTINATION I SENT TO MY CAR APPEARED ON THE IN-CAR NAVIGATION SYSTEM?
A: Destinations can only be received when the car has a suitable data connection. In some cases, even though the system may be shown as connected, the mobile network could be oversubscribed, preventing the system from receiving the destination. Destinations received by the car will be shown only when you are exploring the system’s navigation function. The destination will then be shown either as a route to the side of the Touchscreen or a confirmation pop-up. If the destination is received by the car when you are using a feature other than navigation, the destination can be retrieved from recent destinations.
