I don’t think so. I have the exact same setting in Canada and another person in UK was complaining about that as well. I don’t understand why we can’t put any RSS feed to get any kind of news from any location, in any language. This feature is completely useless for me.
If you install Jaguar Incontrol Apps on your smart phone, you can add Stitcher podcast reader. Set up Stitcher on the phone. With the phone connected to the car, go to the extra features screen, start up the Incontrol Apps, and you can then use Stitcher to access news podcasts.
I don't know how the IP stack works in the car, but even if I connect the car to the home WIFI, it seems that I can't access any home computer on the same subnet (192.168.x.x).
The infotainment system is a closed system and I can't imagine that you can install anything in it like a phone. The only think you can do is develop a web page that display the info you want. This is pretty much how far you can go.
When you connect the car on the Wifi, and scan the open port, you only see the 53 and 8000. It looks like the infotainment system is in a separate subnet, and only use the WIFi as a gateway, and does not expose anything else, which makes sense. So, I had to scan the open port from the browser itseft with a html page that I wrote.
The browser exposes 2 plugins , with MIME TYPE "x-cbip-js01" and "x-cbip-js02". Unfortunately, this MIME TYPE means "Custom Build Internal Plugin", and the "x-" is for undocumented MIMETYPE. Maybe JLR has developed a small app (plugin) to access internal data.
I don't have any hacker skills... I am a bit stuck here.
dernotte, curious results, I would expect they don't want mobile hackers taking control of the vehicle. There was news some years ago of a Jeep throttle and steering hacked via an open port.
It is interesting that the car can enable SOTA downloads via wifi or user SIM. There must be a communication request pathway perhaps via the API channel that opens a port to accept these downloads.
JLR use "Pathfinder" on a laptop via the OBD port. With my very limited TOPIX access I crawled about and found some JLR software downloads. One of the files almost took over my laptop and created its own home screen replacing mine. This was quickly uninstalled, but my registry was messed up, it took days of fiddling about to retore my homescreen again.haha.
