My car has arrived and is being prepared for delivery. This is my current software version - is it the most recent?
S19A-19.11.4330884. The telematics software version 16.2
Is SOTA included, or do I need the dealer to activate?
As for tire pressure, I’m told that 37 psi is recommended for front and 44 psi for back, as going below may trigger a low inflation sensor.
Any other software or setup that I should confirm before pickup? Will add pics soon.
-Jag has been sending emails to owners saying SOTA is coming and theres nothing you need to do, but I would go into settings and ensure that you can press the button that lets you check for updates before leaving the dealership
-The only way to quickly see, and change, the regen level is through the My EV Panel shortcut button. Check to see if it fully loads properly. If it does, you should see shortcut buttons for changing regen between low and high, and changing Creep mode on or off. It the panel doesnt full load, (which it doesnt for many owners), you'll only see an EV Panel header but the buttons will be missing. In this case, the only way to check and change your regen level is going into the My EV settings. If you dont plan on ever changing it then you'll be fine with this bug, but if you're like me and have a spouse that REFUSES to drive the car with regen level on High, then it becomes very tiresome to dig into the settings to check and change the regen level. So if it doesnt load right and you care about that, be sure to address it with the dealership so they can log a ticket for it. The more reports that JLR gets of this issue the more likely they'll be to fix it. My dealer claimed the latest software update fixed it but it didnt, and it still doesnt load most of the time. It's maddening to us, but other people may not care.
-Drive around and play with the climate controls...blast the AC, change the temp...make sure the knobs work and the push/pull functionality works. Make sure it doesnt display temperature in Celcius at some point (a relatively common issue as well).
-Make sure the gauges behind the steering wheel dont show any suspicious messages or errors. On my test drive before taking possession, my gauges displayed a system fault message. I had to give it right back to the dealer.
-As someone else mentioned, dont set up the profiles for the key fobs. They break everything. Also, when you plug in a phone it asks you if it wants you to have it "personalize your experience"...saying yes to this has only given me heartache, so your better off saying now. It'll still work fine with bluetooth connection for calls, music, text messages, etc.
-Bring a cable and test Android Auto and/or Apple Carplay. Load it up, listen to some music, use it to navigate, call up Siri/Google, make a phone call, etc. Test that a long press on the phone button on the steering wheel calls up the assistance when your phone is plugged in.
-Pull up all the cameras one by one and make sure they all work, when stationary and when moving.
