How to Set Up Land Rover InControl

There are three ways to set up Land Rover InControl Apps.

To install Land Rover InControl Apps, follow these steps:

  • Choose the app, and download, accept, and install it.
  • Confirm installation by finding the app icon on your smartphone screen.
  • Follow the Auto Quick Start Guide to finish the setup.

To connect your smartphone to your vehicle with InControl apps, take these steps:

  • Pair your smartphone with your vehicle’s Bluetooth while in it, enabling phone calls and audio streaming.
  • Plug your phone into the InControl Apps USB port with a cord that came with it, not a charge-only one.
  • Select “Always Allow” for Android when you open the app.
  • Leave your phone unlocked, and select InControl Apps on your Land Rover touchscreen.
  • Tap “View” to use apps without audio or “View and Listen” to use apps with audio.

The third set of steps relates to integrating third-party apps. After completing the initial setup, you may see some third-party ads grayed out with a key symbol on the vehicle touchscreen. You’ll need to do these additional things to complete the process.

  • Approve the pop-up that appears on your phone.
  • Press the home button on the vehicle touchscreen.
  • Agree to a second pop-up.
  • Repeat this for all desired third-party apps to unlock them on the touchscreen.
