Does anyone have the actual release notes for phase 4 software? Just picked up my Velar (without the latest update which is annoying) and trying to decide if I should have them do the update or wait awhile for the next reversion. So far nothing is really bothering me. Response times are a bit laggy sometimes and the steering wheel controls are quite slow when navigating the menus on the digital cluster. Other than that I’m a happy customer.

Hi all, just a quick question, are you all being informed by your dealers about these available updates, or are you chasing the dealer yourself?

I have herd nothing from my dealer since I collected the car in January regarding software updates, it has not been the best experence with the dealer so I assume the updates will be done when it is serviced

Think of JLR as a if it is not broken it does not need fixing kind of company. LR will only carry our updates to the 80 odd modules plus infotainment system ie phase 3 or 4 if you report issues. From my experience LR are reactive not proactive.

I don’t think you can rely on it happening at service time either, if you don’t insist that they do the updates. If you’re happy with your car’s electronic performance , and aren’t interested in new features (eg some voice commands for navigation), then why pursue the updates? If you have issues or want the latest features, you’ll have to be proactive.

Customers should be entitled to updates for the warranty period without begging a dealer. Especially as each one cocks something else up.

Anyway, anyone heard about update 5? According to some rumours it’s due next month and supposed to be the best yet.

I was told by my dealer that Phase 5 is due out this month in readiness for the new reg (UK) but we all know how dates can change

Will find out, mines booked in next month to get a few bits and pieces looked at, including issues that the last update caused.

I thought the last update enabled OTA updates, So you don’t need these constant dealer visits?
Or does OTA mean something else in LR world?

Anyone see an improvement in iPhone USB connectivity with phase 4 and beyond? My phone was working fine with the 17C update, but subsequent phone OS updates seem to have broken it again. Bluetooth works fine, but USB is unstable and I can’t control the music from the touchscreen, only the phone.

I think the simple answer is that nobody knows for certain what will happen with the Over The Air updates!!
