I just bought a 68 plate car and had asked for CarPlay to be installed which obviously the dealer want o charge for. When I saw the car it had the 19b update already installed an I discovered CarPlay was already there. It appear InControl apps have no future now so JLR provide CarPlay for free.

Interesting.
Does this apply to those who dont have inControl, Wifi, etc?
There are many in this situation... and we could have Apple Car because of this...
But now that inControl is going to disappear, it is a different story.
Thanks

I've sent it to the dealership, and I think I will whine until they decide to make an update since the whole "we say one thing on the website, but doesn't apply to your 120k car" drives me nuts. That and the brakes, but I will find away to change the latter.

Kind regards,
Nikolai

Did you get it?
Do you have WiFi and SIM card slot?

Absolutely. They've discontinued InControl support so they've made AA & ACP free with 19B. I don't have a SIM or WiFi with my car, that's why I just booked it in for a software update. Told them I wanted the 19B specifically for ACP and they didn't complain.

Funny, because a few months ago, they were asking 3000kr (£250'ish) for the Smartphone pack.

Thanks @mapearce.
Good news! I hope I can also get 19B with AA & ACP. :)

Are you in Stockholm? Which dealership did you go to (I want to do the same)?
Hoping they can do it OTA though.
