JLR India has introduced a new smartphone integration platform with its existing infotainment system. This new platform has been developed by Bosch and tailored-made for Indian consumers. The InControl App transfers the interface of the phone on to the touchscreen system of the vehicle; similar to Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Bosch has been using this platform for various automakers across the globe and in India JLR is the only one currently offering it. InControl App comes offers access to popular apps like NDTV, Hungama, MapmyIndia and Zomato which should help car users to play music, find a restaurant, catch up on news and of course navigate. There are five international apps to choose from as well that help sync your calendar details, make conference calls, and should help JLR users find a hotel in a city. Bosch is also considering voice command system as an additional feature.

 

Rohit Suri, President, Jaguar Land Rover India Ltd (JLRIL), said:|

“InControlTM Apps will enhance the overall luxury experience of our vehicles and provide technology savvy customers a more convenient option to access their favorite apps. This is an exciting new technology addition to Land Rover vehicles, which have already become popular for their design, performance, craftsmanship and luxury credentials.”

Vijay Ratnaparkhe, Managing Director, Robert Bosch Engineering and Business Solutions said:

“I am often asked whether phones will integrate with cars or perhaps phones will replace navigation systems. This smart phone integration solution is the best of both worlds. We ensure that ultimately technology serves the consumer in a convenient and safe way. For the tech savvy consumer, our products are built to delight. We are excited to be collaborating with Jaguar Land Rover India because both of us endorse quality craftsmanship to benefit the customer.”
