Found a beautiful corris grey i-pace a few weeks ago with all the specs I wanted so I decided to go for it. Finalized the paperwork this week and just got word that the car will be loaded for transport on Monday! Hoping it gets here in a week or two.

Did some errands yesterday and she's already turning heads! Ive never had a car with so much tech and features and its fantastically different experience from anything else I've ever driven. I got my incontrol account setup and linked to the car and wattcat working but they both keep saying the cars location is still in California. Hopefully itll update in the next few days. Is there a way to have the AC running while using a level 1 charger? I wanted to sit in the car and mess with settings while it was charging but had to abandon that idea as it was too hot without the AC. And on the same note, I cant seem to figure out the rear climate controls. I have the 4 zone controls and I couldnt feel any air coming out of the rear vents no matter what settings I used.

Level 1 won't keep up with the demands of the A/C, but no worries because the car can cool the cabin without being plugged in at all. Just use WattCat or the JLR remote app and set the cabin to precondition. It will run for 30 minutes. On the third party iPhone app, MyPace, there is feature titled Camper/Pet Mode where it will run the HVAC indefinitely (until the battery runs down). This is a lifesaver in the summer here in Fla. You only need to give the car a few minutes and it makes a huge difference on a hot day. For MyPace, there is a handy AppleWatch app that activates the cabin preconditioning with one click.

If you are low on charge and only have access to a Level 1 charger, go ahead and find a free level 2 charger in a free garage and get the kitty charged up. Level 1 is painfully slow.

For the rear climate, were you sitting back there, or trying to turn it one from the front seat? The car senses where people are sitting and deactivates zones where there are no bodies.
I was sitting in the back with my wife in the front. We found out that the smart climate thought no one was back there because I hadnt buckled my seatbelt. Once the belt was buckled it turned on. Left her plugged in for most of the evening and last night and got about 30 miles of range which isnt too shabby. Sitting at 85% now which is plenty for my work week and errands. I also have a couple of level 2 chargers in the parking lot next to my office if I need some extra juice. Not sure if they're free or not but I dont think I'll need them very often anyways. wattcat and incontrol are now showing the correct address and allowing the remote controls so I'll have to test that out later. Its going to be so nice getting into a cool car after work!

I also settled on a name. The Razor Crest. One of our friends even said it was like a spaceship when they got in!

Just tested the remote climate feature and it's wonderful! I don't have great cell service at my home though so it took a bit to activate. Speaking of cell service. Since the car receives cell service is there a cell plan I need to pay for to keep access to certain features and updates?

Car infotainment and TCU updates come via car's built-in SIM or WIFI (if connected). The car's data seen via the Jaguar Incontrol app goes through this SIM too. The remote features of locking/unlocking, journeys, etc., (the Jaguar smartphone app features) require a subscription through incontrol.jaguar.com. Since this is working on your phone, you can check the expiration date in the app ("More" then "subscriptions"). The original account for the car was set up for 5 years from when the dealer set it up. You'll get an email reminder about 1 month before it expires with instructions for renewal.

Connected navigation, WIFI hotspot, and Incontrol apps (features of Incontrol Pro Services) require a user supplied SIM that is inserted into the slot in the center console (under the arm rest). It can be any provider you choose. A new car in the US comes with an AT&T SIM. Individual apps (eg. Spotify) that can be brought up in the Incontrol apps may require their own subscriptions to get the full benefit. It requires some configurations settings to be set correctly to work.

Map updates are via jaguar.here.com. You'll need an account there to be able to download map updates to a flash drive (USB 3.x highly recommended) that is then inserted into a slot in the center console (under the arm rest) after navigation software has booted up. It will detected the updated map info on the drive and give prompts to follow to update the car's map info. This must start with the car stationary, preferably in park. It raises the question about whether this got transferred to you too (at least the remainder of the initial 5 years). If not, then you may have to set up a whole new account for the car and buy a subscription. Hopefully, the car is not still registered at here.com to the former owner.
Didnt have any issues setting up incontrol or my jag.here account fortunately. Looks like the dealer wiped the original owner from the car which was convenient. The app is showing February 5th 2024 as the expiration date so good to go there for the time being.
