Range Rover Screen Features

Range Rovers have a premium interior, which includes a dashboard with a sizeable infotainment screen controlling the vehicles systems. You can scroll through the infotainment just as you could a smartphone, to access all of its features such as the web browser or Bluetooth. However, the screen can sometimes be slow when completing actions which can be frustrating.

The screen also allows you to use the satellite navigation system, which is easy to use and calculates routes quickly. You can also use Range Rover’s InControl app to mirror your smartphone apps to your infotainment screen.

Several Range Rover owners have complained about experiencing issues with their infotainment screens. Specifically, the Range Rover L405 has had lots of problems since its initial release in 2012. We covered these problems in a recent blog post which you can read here.
