The Land Rover InControl Remote Smartphone App app communicates with the vehicle remotely, to check the vehicle's fuel level and the estimated range available. Journey logs can be viewed, and the status of the doors and the windows checked. The last parked position of the vehicle can be confirmed, along with directions back to that position.

The Vehicle Status page is the home screen for the app. The following features can be selected:

  • Security Status.

  • Journeys.

  • Assistance.

  • Settings.

  • Beep & Flash.

  • Remote Climate.

  • Vehicle Security Remote Lock and Alarm setting.

  • Vehicle Wake Up.

NOTES

When an InControl account is set up, the owner of the account creates a PIN which is required for InControl features.

Security Status:

The screen displays the open and closed status of all the doors and windows, and the current alarm setting.

Journeys:

The screen displays the most recently completed journeys.

NOTES

The journeys feature can be enabled or disabled via the InControl Settings screen within the InControl Remote Smartphone App.

NOTES

Stored journeys can be viewed, deleted, or downloaded as a .csv file to assist with business expenses.

Assistance:

The screen displays the vehicle's VIN and registration number. Direct calls can be made to the optimized assistance call center, for breakdown assistance. Or in the event of a vehicle theft direct calls can be made to the stolen vehicle tracking call center.

Settings:

The screen allows the vehicle's security status and the journey recording to be switched on or off. Settings also allows access to the owner's InControl account.

Beep & Flash:

Beep & flash locates the vehicle by flashing the vehicle’s lights and sounding the horn.

NOTES

Responsibility remains the driver's to comply with all regulations in force, regarding the use of vehicle horns.

Remote Climate:

With remote climate, the engine of an automatic transmission vehicle can be started remotely, and run for up to 30 minutes. The remote climate feature provides a comfortable temperature inside the cabin in advance of the driver entering the vehicle. Press the Engine START button on the Remote Climate page and enter a PIN. A target temperature can be set.

Remote climate does not function if any of the following conditions exist:

  • The vehicle's fuel level is low.

  • The vehicle's battery charge level is low.

  • The vehicle is not locked.

  • A window, door, hood, or the tailgate is open.

  • The engine has been manually started.

  • A system error occurs with any required vehicle system.

  • A theft has been reported to the stolen vehicle monitoring center.

  • The vehicle's alarm is sounding.

  • A crash event has been detected.

  • The hazard warning lights are switched on.

  • The automatic transmission is not in Park (P).

  • The brake pedal is pressed.

NOTES

Some markets may prohibit the use of remote engine starting. Responsibility remains the driver's to know if this function can legally be used.

NOTES

Remote climate is also available for vehicles fitted with a timed climate system. When the vehicle specification does not support remote engine starting, the timed climate system may be used to support cabin pre-conditioning. The condition also applies if the vehicle originated in a market with legal restrictions on remote engine starting.

Vehicle Security:

Vehicle security allows the user to lock and unlock the vehicle remotely. When either lock or unlock cannot be performed, the phone screen displays an error message. For added security, this function requires a PIN code to be entered.

When the vehicle is locked remotely, it is secured to the maximum possible level allowed in the market in which the vehicle was intended for original sale.

NOTES

When any window(s) is in an open position, the vehicle does not lock remotely. Remote closing of windows is not permitted in the US.

When the vehicle is unlocked remotely, it relocks after 45 seconds if no door or aperture is opened. When an alarm alert is received, the vehicle’s alarm can be reset from the owner's current position.

NOTES

Regardless of which screen is currently displayed, if the vehicle's alarm is sounding, a pop-up screen is displayed with an option to reset the alarm. The alarm may also be reset via the Vehicle Security screen.

NOTES

Responsibility remains the driver's to know the location of the vehicle and to make sure that the vehicle is secured.

Vehicle Wake Up:

The InControl Remote system enters a low power mode, 96 hours after the last engine stop. The low power mode action conserves vehicle battery life.

When the vehicle is parked for an extended period, e.g., when on vacation, or on a business trip, the owner can use the Vehicle Wake Up feature on the app. The feature wakes up the InControl Remote system on the selected date. Any date within a 30 day period can be chosen. Once Vehicle Wake Up is set, the InControl Remote system enters the low power mode after 60 hours. Battery power is then reserved for the wake up.

NOTES

Note: The Vehicle Wake Up feature cannot be set once the InControl Remote system has shut down.

SOS Emergency Call:

There are two states of SOS Emergency Call: Automatic and manual operation.

In a crash situation, where the air bags have deployed, an automatic emergency call is made to the emergency services. In a non-crash situation, when emergency assistance is required, the emergency call button can be used manually.

In both states, the button flashes yellow until the emergency services answer the call, at which point the flashing stops.

The vehicle's location, owner details, and the nature of the problem is automatically taken. The appropriate emergency services are despatched to the vehicle's location. Contact with the emergency services agent can be made, at any time, by pressing the button.

The emergency call button is located in the overhead console, on the right-side. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

Press and release the button cover to reveal the button. The button is illuminated by a red LED. Press the button for 2 seconds to make a direct call to the emergency services.

After use, push the button cover back into place.

NOTES

When the vehicle is traveling in a different country, the SOS Emergency Call still connects. However the vehicle’s location and the vehicle's details may not be automatically sent.

There are two back-up batteries that maintain full system operation, in the event that the vehicle's battery is disconnected or disabled. The batteries are guaranteed for 3 years. When the batteries require replacement, SOS Limited is displayed in the message center. Consult a retailer/authorized repairer for replacement batteries.

When a fault is detected with the SOS Emergency Call system, the SOS Limited message is displayed in the message center. When this occurs, the vehicle can still be driven, but consult a retailer/authorized repairer at the earliest opportunity.

Optimized Assistance Call:

The call button is located in the overhead console, on the left-side. See DRIVER CONTROLS.

In the event of a breakdown, press and release the button cover to reveal the button. The button is illuminated by a white LED. Press the button for 2 seconds to make a direct call to the assistance center. The button flashes until the assistance center answers the call, at which point the LED changes to yellow. The vehicle's details and current location are automatically relayed on to them.

The assistance center then sends roadside assistance to the vehicle location. The agent calls back to confirm the estimated time of arrival. When the light flashes, push the button to answer the call.

After use, push the button cover back into place.

Stolen Vehicle Locator:

In the event that the vehicle is stolen:

  1. First, contact the police and file a police report.

  2. Contact the Stolen Vehicle Monitoring Center via the Land Rover InControl Remote Smartphone App. Alternatively, use the phone number on the InControl website.

  3. Provide the Stolen Vehicle Monitoring Center with the police report number.

The Stolen Vehicle Monitoring Center then liaise with the police to pinpoint the exact location of the stolen vehicle. While tracking the vehicle, access to the Land Rover InControl Remote Smartphone App and the owner's InControl Customer Account, is unavailable until the vehicle has been recovered.
