This will be a longer one topic, that's why I would divide it into separate parts.
Part 1 - making your I-Pace's Navigation to use most of the Connected Car features
- Origin of your vehicle is any country except Japan or China, as they are using their local Navigation systems within Touch Pro.
- You have your car connected to the internet (preferably via mobile network)
- Setting up NAV account on the portal
go to InControl Route Planner https://www.jaguar.here.com/ and register to set account for Nav features.
I know, that it is a bit confusing, as there is already an portal for My Jaguar InControl (https://incontrol.jaguar.com/). Credentials from the My Jaguar portal are used to manage other car features like - remote car access/charge, security tracking, Live apps setup, etc. To manage your car remotely you use InControl Remote App, but that you probably already know...
However for all features around Nav, you need to use the credentials you entered at InControl Route Planner portal
- Downloading the App to the smartphone
Search at you App Store (or Google Play) for Jaguar Route Planner app. Once downloaded, enter the credentials there which you have put in the portal.
- Logging with the Nav portal's credentials into your's vehicle Navigation system
That is the last, but not least point.
1. Go to Nav Settings (settings->Nav settings) and go to Profile
2. Create a new profile for you
As there might be multiple users of your vehicle, each of them may have their own Point of Interests, Favourite Places, Commutes, etc. For each user there might be separate profile
3. Add your In Control Route Planner account to your profile
Now your vehicle's Nav system is linked with the InControl Route Planner portal and App on your phone.
- manage your favourite places from the phone's app or from web portal
- plan the route on your phone, which then will be sent to your vehicle (it may be door-to-door route guidance)
- check the last location of your vehicle
- check previous routes/journeys you drove
What other 'connected car' features you have?
- Live traffic (I think mostly used by you)
- Traffic-jam avoidance route selection
- Satellite View of the Map option (on top of 2D or 3D standard map view)
- contextual on-line search for places
- street-view like feature for some places
- on-line share of your location and journey progress
Some more explanation for some of the above
Traffic Jam avoidance
If you select this option in Navigation Settings, then route calculation will take into account live traffic data, choosing the route where less traffic is recognised. For a longer routes it may also propose re-route if faster route is found
Contextual on-line search
It was a pretty surprise for me, that there is such an option in the Nav system. So basically Nav Search bar is using on-line search, whenever it has got internet connectivity, if not, it searches through the points of interest from in-vehicle database which is embedded with map.
How to do it?
Go to Nav search, and start typing any place name, like Buckingham Palace
After typing few first letters, press the 'keyboard' symbol. keyboard will hide and contextual search results will be shown
Once you have selected destination, and there is a 'street view' available for that place, it will be displayed next to the map-route.
and press the cross-arrows to go into the full-screen view
Now you can swipe and pinch for zoom around. You cant move... unfortunately.
