Shoddy Jag infotainment is a thing of the past
If you own a Jaguar – a new XE perhaps – you’ll have noticed that it’s blighted by an unresponsive touchscreen and Fisher Price graphics. But no longer do you have to suffer such atrocities – the F-Type has a new-generation infotainment system called InControl Touch. Actually the top-spec InControl Touch Pro is the one to go for with its 10.2-inch widescreen, erm, screen that features crystal clear graphics and does without buttons altogether.
The instrument cluster is now a 12.3-inch digital screen, too, that can be configured in a variety of different themes. Our favourite is full-width sat-nav mode that put the maps right there in front of your knuckles. And the wizardry doesn’t stop there – the car can share your destination, current location and ETA with others via e-mail or text – so your other half will know where you are at all times. On second thoughts, that’s a terrible idea.
