The original automobile was a mere glimpse of the future technology that the current vehicles would eventually embody. The various amenities that have become commonplace in car design and engineering are what we address today as “infotainment.” There are many different types of vehicle infotainment, and they all add to the luxury and comfort of the driving experience—especially if you own a Land Rover. Land Rover is one of those automotive brands that caters perfectly to the many needs of the modern driver, including reliability, durability, strength, and of course, luxury and entertainment.
Infotainment, or the technological/digital aspects that are a part of your Land Rover’s design can either come stock or as a customized part, depending on the type of Land Rover you drive. Such technological features add convenience and comfort into the driving experience, and it’s only getting more advanced and evolved in the near future! Just like all the other aspects of your Land Rover, the various infotainment features require maintenance and care in order to function optimally. In this article, we’ll talk a little more about the different types of infotainment you might find in your Land Rover, what issues you can expect to encounter over time, and how you can address such issues for an overall more pleasant experience.
Infotainment features emerged long ago, when cassette tapes and 8-tracks were the wave of the future. As you might remember, depending on your age, these were a huge development in the auto industry, and were the beginning of what we have come to know as technological amenities and infotainment. CD-players evolved into 5-disk changers, and now we can simply tell our car what music we’d like to listen to. With a single voice command or tap of a button, your Land Rover can play any song you’d like to hear. Other infotainment systems usually include navigation, and audio and media features like video-players and Bluetooth.
Since technology is constantly evolving, at times these features in your Land Rover can hit a rough patch. Technological glitches in infotainment systems are common, and the manufacturers are usually made quickly aware of such issues, improving upon their designs with each new model. It’s important that the Land Rover specialist you choose for maintenance and repair tasks is familiar with the common infotainment issue that Land Rovers tend to experience. There’s one thing you can rely on: technology can be unreliable at times. Therefore, it’s best to have an auto technician you can rely on to address the issue.
Routine vehicle care isn’t just limited to the mechanical aspects that make your car “go”—but maintenance procedures extend to the digital and technological parts of your car that make the experience overall more convenient. For instance, if your navigation system in your Land Rover encounters a glitch or shows signs of malfunction, it might need to be updated or serviced. System updates and regular services and downloads for your infotainment systems are what keep it functioning well. The more the issue goes unaddressed, the more of an inconvenience it becomes—and this is a problem for the luxury car owner in particular, as we come to depend upon the high-quality consistency they offer.
