The website/marketing material isnt overly clear but does sat nav come as standard even on the entry model velar d180?

I've seen upgrade options for navigation pro etc but would expect a nav system as standard when spending £45k on the basic spec?

Thanks

I find it extremely funny when I read posts on social media etc and online media where people talk about the Velar being a £45k car. It kind of worries me that I have a launch edition coming and I have spent £84k on this car and will have to spend a lot of time telling people this car is actually nearly double the price of the entry level model!

Add a few bits and bobs and the Velar is nearly a £65k car for a decent spec!!

It's far from a £45k car and I really doubt there will be many bog standard poverty spec ones around! JLRs marketing tactic showing the launch edition car but then saying from £44k is highly misleading. The contract hire companies are also riding on this buy using images of high spec cars and then saying £349 a month - it pains!

My build date also got pushed back a month to mid November because my salesman had to change my option list because he mistakenly left a few items off. No problem, I'll look forward to y'all pictures, videos, and feed backs.

I am now one of those unhappy people who just took delivery of a standard Velar and now found out it has no sat nav as standard. The spec option was Pro Navigation. It never occurred to me that with those two screens there wouldn't actually be sat nav? I am so upset right now. I don't know what to do. Do you think the factory might take it back and fit?

I'm so sorry to here that. I'm pretty sure it can be replaced or updated to include nav. It may take a while before service is trained and parts are available.

I believe all US are spec with nav.

my dealer has let me spec up a S when my options on the SE were standard or way cheaper....or just not on there so I've missed out.

I would have expected a little assistance but he doesn't have a clue...

slightly pissed off too

Does anyone know if you can add configurable dynamics post delivery as I'm assuming its just to do with the electrics?

I would really pressure your dealer (and pay, the upmost attention with your next config, JLR offers just to much bloody options). Let your dealer buy back the car (minus some driven miles) and order the spec you want.

I don't know how you all buy cars without knowing what you're getting. Most cars at a 45k price point from Mercedes, BMW, and even Porsche don't come with nav in base spec. Having said that, I do agree that it's sad these manufacturers still consider this a "luxury" in 2017.

The in control apps (I assume those are standard) offer navigation choices though. They use the gps on your smartphone, but give you real time nav on the built in screen.

Thanks for all the help and replies, keep em coming. I'll be speaking to the dealer and making some enquiries with LR direct. I live in Solihull after all!

The InControl app compatibility is also a factory fit preparation which I didn't realise either. Having come out of a highly equipped BMW to this Velar I obviously didn't appreciate how much kit was on the Beemer and how little is standard on the Velar. It stinks. What next, start charging extra for a basic steering wheel or doors?

The basic Velar is a bloody joke - £44k price - not sure what JLR was thinking making that model. The range should have started from £55k with a decent spec. Good luck in sorting this out but I don't think you will get anywhere with this :(
