Whether you want to start the engine using a smartphone app, have a navigation system that can tell your contacts when you'll arrive for your meeting, connect up to eight devices using the Wi-Fi hotspot, or just stream your favourite playlists - the new all-new F-PACE delivers

InControl Touch: Powerful functionality, intuitive to use

The all-new F-PACE comes with Jaguar's InControl Touch infotainment system as standard. Featuring an 8-inch capacitive touchscreen, intuitive user interface and crisp clear graphics, it supports smartphone and tablet gestures such as 'swipe' to move from one page to another, and 'drag' to scroll through maps.

Entering addresses is quicker and easier than with previous systems and routes are calculated faster thanks to SD card storage of navigation data. Maps are rendered in 2D and 3D graphics, making directions even simpler and more intuitive to follow.

Turn-by-turn instructions can also be shown in the optional head-up display, leaving the driver free to concentrate on what matters most - the road ahead.

InControl Touch Pro: World-class performance

InControl Touch Pro is the most advanced infotainment system that Jaguar has ever offered. Designed and developed in-house around state-of-the-art technologies including a quad-core processor, a high-speed 60GB Solid-State Drive (SSD) and an ultra-fast Ethernet network, InControl Touch Pro delivers truly world-class performance and an outstanding user experience.

The system features a 10.2-inch touchscreen - the largest in the segment. And, like a tablet, there are no buttons: in their place are soft keys integrated into the bottom section of the touchscreen, making interaction smooth and seamless.

The home screen can be customised and widgets can be added - users can even add additional home screens if they wish. The super-wide display also enables multi-tasking: media, for example, can be shown in the main screen area, while a side panel shows information such as call history, navigation data or weather reports.

InControl Touch Pro has been designed to make every journey easier and more enjoyable. Navigation data stored on the high-speed SSD can be accessed in a fraction of the time required with conventional hard drive technology, making the graphics incredibly responsive. Users can zoom in and out of maps using 'pinch' and 'pan' gestures - nothing could be simpler or more intuitive.

Even when there's no GPS signal the system can still help you to stay on track: dead-reckoning functionality analyses data from the vehicle's sensors to accurately predict the vehicle's location.

Using the data connection to access location-based features adds another dimension to the system's capability. Search for a destination and the system will check if there's sufficient fuel to complete the journey. If not, this will be flagged and filling stations on the route that are within range are shown on the map: tapping on one of them is all it takes to add it as a waypoint.

It's also possible to share your destination, current location and estimated time of arrival (ETA) with others via email or text message. If your ETA slips, the system can automatically follow-up with an update.

Commute Mode learns your daily drive so that it can offer alternative routes to avoid congestion using historical and real-time traffic information. Approach Mode adds a 360° interactive view of your destination alongside the map display when you're some 200m distant - it can even show you where the nearest available car parking spaces are and then direct you to them.

And a dedicated companion app for iOS and Android devices enables true door-to-door route planning and guidance and can help you to complete your journey on public transport or on foot.

For those who just want to enjoy the music, InControl Touch Pro offers a choice of two digital audio systems developed with renowned British experts Meridian, including a 17-speaker, 825W surround sound system which delivers ideal sound reproduction with benchmark low levels of distortion.

The experience is enriched with Gracenote images stored on the SSD drive - 10GB of its 60GB capacity is dedicated to media storage - and functions such as 'Play more like this' which automatically compiles playlists, or Music Queue, which makes it easy to search for and add songs, albums or artists to a music queue the current track is still playing.

Made for the future: Next-generation architecture

The modules within InControl Touch Pro are connected using ultra-fast Ethernet. This is most advanced network technology available and is more than five times faster than competing technologies. Jaguar is one of the very first vehicle manufacturers to use it.

Ethernet's main advantage is its incredible bandwidth: up to 1Gb/ second. The potential to carry such massive amounts of data, together with the performance of the quad-core processor and the solid-state drive means that InControl Touch Pro will be able to offer even greater functionality in the future.

All the right connections: The world of InControl

InControl Apps enables drivers to access apps on Android and Apple smartphones using the all-new F-PACE's InControl Touch and InControl Touch Pro infotainment systems. After connecting the device using a USB cable and the dedicated port in the centre console, compatible apps will be shown on the vehicle touchscreen. Optimised for in-vehicle use to reduce driver distraction, the range of approved third-party apps is growing all the time.

The all-new F-PACE can also function as a Wi-Fi hotspot, and up to eight devices can be connected at any one time. An integrated SIM card and the vehicle's antenna are used to give the most stable, reliable signal - up to a third stronger than a smartphone.

Drivers can use iOS and Android smartphones and the InControl Remote App to connect with the all-new F-PACE from anywhere in the world. Remote Essentials functionality can show if the vehicle is locked or not and if any of the doors or windows are open. It can also show how much fuel is in the tank, where the vehicle was last parked, and warnings such as low windscreen washer fluid levels.

Remote Premium goes much further, enabling the driver to use their phone to lock or unlock the car, receive an alert if the alarm goes off, and reset the alarm. The beep and flash feature can help drivers to find the car - ideal for large multi-story carparks.

For the ultimate in comfort and convenience, Remote Premium can also be used to start the engine remotely on models equipped with automatic transmissions, enabling the climate control system to pre-condition the cabin before the start of a journey. The driver can set the desired temperature and then, at the press of a button, the engine will run for up to 30 minutes.

InControl Secure enhances security by providing proactive vehicle monitoring and tracking. Should anybody break into the vehicle or move it without permission, the monitoring centre alerts the driver and will work with law enforcement agencies to locate and recover the car as quickly as possible. Even if the vehicle is stolen using the key, the driver can use the InControl Remote App to alert the centre.

If the vehicle is involved in a collision which triggers the airbags, InControl Protect will automatically notify the emergency services and provide the GPS location. The occupants can also manually trigger an emergency call by pressing a dedicated button in the roof console.

I noticed in the second image that the seats are only partly heated.... base heated and back not. My old XF allowed you to do this but I can't seem to get the FP to do it, anyone know how?

If I remember right you need to have spec'd climate seats to be able to do this.
Then within the ICTP when you select the heated seats button you will see the graphic shown in the image

That explains a lot because my XF was a Portfolio which had climate seats, I just assumed all Jags offered this feature rather than it being unique to ones with climate seats.
