OK been looking at online reviews of other cars, particularly BMW.

And I need to apologise to my Velar, its software maybe temperamental but it’s logical. I was watching the review of the new X5. It has Apple CarPlay but you can’t get Android Auto, no problem I’m an Apple diehard, BUT if you want to use your phone to lock and unlock your new X5 you have to have an Android phone Confused Logical.

Anyway Velar is booked back into the dealers on the 19th February to have the latest software installed, which will hopefully cure all my issues I have at present. I’m quietly confident as most owners seem pretty pleased with the results, also it’s getting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto activated, yes BMW, LR can do both Very Happy though I have been told I have to pay £200 for the pleasure. Hmmm, everyone else has had it for free so a bit of negotiation required.

So the futures bright the futures Land Rover....

.....maybe.

I’ve just updated to 18D, which was done for free (in response to certain warranty issues) and it is the biggest change yet. What version would you be moving to?

Overall, it’s performing pretty well, although RSE control is still very clunky and doesn’t work reliably. Maybe on the next version... Wink

I’ve got a soft spot for those too, although I “only” ever got to use the standard, twin card, SD1 V8. A wonderful sound with a blown exhaust Thumbs Up

It should be 18D, currently running 18B, though I did read somewhere that 19A is due Rolling Eyes

Yeah, most have got the ACP/AA for free, I’m using a different dealer for the first time in over a decade only because my one can’t get me in for a while yet, so I’m trying Edinburgh West. They were charging £243 now down to £200 but Edinburgh East charging £100 which is apparently labour costs.

Sorry for the ignorance, but what’s “ACP/AA”?

Overfinch have brought out a few bits and pieces for the Velar.

They are truly horrid but I thought I’d price them up as it’s caught the imagination of some over on the Velar forum.

Rear diffuser is £3840 or £4.5k if I want it in carbon fibre

The front grill which looks like it came straight off a Range Rover P38 is £3300

They even used a 4 cylinder diesel for their advertisements, so the exhaust outlets serve no purpose as it doesn’t have dual branch exhausts

Confirms my opinion of Overfinch. Thud
 King of the typo.

MY11 D4 5.0 V8, Bourneville, lots of goodies!

Now departed: '85 RR Vogue, '94 D1, '95 D1, '70 SIIA, '97 D1, '04 D2a. All V8, except for the SIIA - but that drank as much petrol anyway!

Didn’t Overfinch used to be a respected Range Rover tuner before resorting to this? Do they still do that as well, or are they just an alternative to Kahn if you want to ruin you car now?

Had my software updated after our last PM to the latest and so far all issues sorted and its been great, don’t pay for the Apple Play it loads it automatically when they do the software upgrade and the dealer cant choose what elements the upgrade loads according to the tech that done mine.

Hope it works as good for you

My 2014 X5 played nicely with an iPhone, including remote lock/unlock and all the other connected services. Look for the BMW Connected app on the app store.

Technically, it didn't have Appleplay but you could use a long press of the voice control button to invoke Siri and sort out messages etc as well as stream music.

Obviously when BMW software has a glitch, it's mostly advantageous.
