Android Auto

howdy -

I saw a youtube review where they indicated that the epace was going to have Android Auto, yet I talked with my local dealer and was told not so much.

Anyone have an idea if the 2018 will have Android Auto, and if not is it simply a software update?


Thanx,
Kevin...

Dealer just told me they signed a contract with Apple for their system. Not sure about Android. Probably soon though.

Just picked up my new E-Pace SE. the Dealership indicated that the Android Auto capability would be available eventually as a software up date.

Wish all automakers could update android/apple compatibility with an update. It seems to either be included or not on most models and would require an aftermarket head unit to fix. Glad to hear its coming to the new E-Pace.

Some infotainment systems doesn't have the hardware necessary for Apple/Android compatibility, that's why a software update isn't enough. We're lucky in that the E-Pace seems to come with everything we'd need and now it's just a waiting game for Jaguar to close the deal with Apple and Google.

Seems like JLR has announced to add Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to its vehicles. They will be available with an optional smartphone connectivity package. However, there's no set date for when these features and retroactive updates will be available in the US, but rollout appears to have started in the UK.
