Eventually, screens, this Play and that Play, wifi, soft/hardspots will take over the car interior and there will be no room for the wheel anymore ;-)

My other day to day is a Vivaro van. I recently changed the infotainment system for a Double din Android £199 Chinese unit. This is android 8.1 & has everything one could want in gadgets. Fitted it 5 months ago. 1st month was great & played around with all the functions. Now I get in van & listen to my music & drive. We had the 10" head unit in the 2017mMY Evoque we had with all the gadgets & same again . It's what you ain't got that you want, until you have it.

I can understand why you'd need the distractions in a van and an Evoque, but in an F-Type? C'mon! ;)

Sorry to bring back an old thread but thought it better than starting a new one.

Can a MY19 (September 18) with 10" screen get the smartphone pack? I've got my eye on a car and would love it to be compatible. I know I can ask the retailer but info from this forum is generally more reliable :)

I'm in the UK.

Hopefully if you PM simpleR your reg he can help.
There is/was an ongoing campaign to bring all Jaguars with the Pro systems (back to around 2016 on some models) up to date with the smartphone pack and then Carplay/Android auto.
Under no circumstances pay for this if you are eligible as previously they were stinging people £200 for the smartphone pack.
The fact you have the 10" screen sounds hopeful as that should be the Pro system.

I took my my18 in for the hn251 software update and was told that there were issues with the update blowing fuses and jaguar had stopped performing the update. Not told if temporary or final
