Sat Nav Version

How do I check which version of Sat Nav I have loaded on MY13 D4.

The dealer says its the latest one but I doubt it.

I guess his next question will be where to find such settings.

Not so sure myself.

If an upgrade is needed, and it's chargeable and probably in any case, it's better to go 3rd party.

What I mean by that is that the JLR SatNav is pretty Censored , and you would get better functionality & value for money, with an app on a smartphone or a dedicated SatNav.

I have a Garmin SatNav, there's a wide range available:-

https://buy.garmin.com/en-GB/GB/cOnTheRoad-cAutomotive-p1.html

and they can be bought a very good prices from Tesco, Currys, Argos etc..

I also use an app on my smartphone when in areas for which I haven't bought a map - like driving from Fernandina Beach is on Amelia Island in FL to Alpharetta GA, when Google Maps proved to be 100%.

Cannot recall seeing it in either.

I'm not sure everyone would regard 3rd part as 'better'. Some like the convenience of a built-in device that does not require mounts, charging cables or removal and refitting on each journey in an effort to reduce theft. The cost of maps is less than a couple of tanks of fuel or about the price of 1 tyre or a fraction of one year of road tax.

I like having a built in sat nav but my tom tom is far superior to the land rover one and it did cost a lot less than an update from land rover Thumbs Up

Ha Ha, your correct Robbie, the version number is not in any of the settings.

So here is my predicament, it's £169 for the upgrade from JLR on USB which also needs qualifying to the VIN of the vehicle.

I have no problem paying that for the convenience of a built in system, but my main dealer says I have the latest version!!!. so in theory I could buy the 2017 release off JLR but I might already have it.

So does anyone know how I can find out??? Bow down

Cost me £95 to go from 2013 to 2017 maps, plus a few hours of boredom loading them.

I've got the MY10 inbuilt sat-nav which needs taken to a dealer for an upgrade.

Does anyone know of a replacement screen/system which would do the same job (phone, music, sat-nav, 4x4 etc) but which could have the maps updated more easily? Or am I looking at a trade-in to a more recent D4 to achieve that (which won't happen anytime soon - i.e. 3 years+)?

I do not want wires and cables trailing everywhere - I'm prepared to put up with my historic sat nav if the only option is something dash-mounted.

I find that one of these:-




http://www.mobilefun.co.uk/olixar-dock-go-car-holder-p47851.htm

at a cost of c. £13 has worked perfectly with my SG Note 4 & SG S7 Edge without any cables at all for journeys up to 3 or 4 hours provided the 'phone is fairly fully charged at start.

This includes using the 'phone, running Google Maps & Pocket GPS speed Camera apps simultaneously - YMMV.

Whistle

May be age related then, that's a 2010-11 screen

Surely dealer would check before updating if you say unless it's.... Don't do it ?
