Land Rover has updated the Discovery Sport in India for the Model Year 2018, with connectivity features which include Wi-Fi Hotspot and Pro Services in addition to the existing InControl Apps feature.
The Wi-Fi Hotspot uses a customer sourced SIM to provide in car access to a 4G hotspot for up to 8 devices. This allows passengers to simultaneously stay connected, work or be entertained throughout the journey, the company said.
A range of additional services that further enhance the vehicle’s infotainment capabilities have been included under ‘InControl – Pro Services’ to deliver a more connected experience. Key features of these services include:
The Route Planner App – Available from Apple Store or Google Play Store, the App allows one to navigate to the end destination and sync routes with the vehicle’s navigation system.

Sharing ETA – This feature allows sharing of updates with certain contacts on expected time of arrival (ETA) via SMS.
