Yep, that's the one I've got ready to go.

Did you have to activate it first using a mobile?

If you have a Three Mobile SIM fitted in the car there is an easy way to check on how much allowance you have left and when it runs out.

1) Open the browser in the car and go to www.three.co.uk
2) At the top right of the screen click "Login" and wait for the page to load. No actual login details need to be entered if will go straight to your account.
3) Under the Data Allowance section click "check your data allowance" on the next page you should see how much data you have left and the expiry date.

No activation needed
I’ve learned if you push out the SIM card from the holder it comes out easier in the full SIM card size first , then push out the micro card from that frame it’s easier, and you don’t end up with the smaller nano card at first push.

The snap back together on a flat surface,, ( kitchen work top) push it into the frame , turn it over then push again so it’s flat again, if you do accidentally push out the wrong bit though.

I just followed the online instructions and it worked great.
Once account is set up on the car , you get an email to validate your account, once you validate the account it takes you to a log in page. The page it takes you to is the WRONG page , it should take you to Jaguar here at this link https://jaguar.here.com/#

I spent a while trying to login to the wrong page, and then found the right one. Please note you can’t log into https://jaguar.here.com/#. On an iPad either ( that peed me off too, it won’t let you put your cursor in the fields) I had to log in in my Mac and it was fine.

I got my map update from the downloads section. Needed a fat32 - 32G usb3 the update is about 29G.

Hi, I have the standard entertainment system and have put in a data sim in the car. Does this only work for WiFi hotspot or can I run the incontrol apps etc from this. It seems as if I have to plug in phone to run all the apps so assume the phone package is paying for this

Hi all .... could someone clarify the point that with pro system if you bluetooth your phone with a data connection to the car will the car see the data ... (via the phone) or would you still need the on-board SIM...

Many thanks

I don’t think It would work by Bluetooth, all though I haven’t tried it. You can however use the cars WiFi and tether the phone to it as a personal hotspot to pull data.

24G for 24 months £45

Item is under review due to some issues. Just for info.
Just to let folks know , I fitted this 24G , it works fine, I’ve turned on all the items that use the card and have set 1GB a month .
So I can set back and wait for two years before a change .



I did have a laugh when I fitted it though ....had it just about fully inserted by fingernail when it shot out on the spring tension and split into a nano card and a frame. But it all pushed back together with a click and fitted fine.

I've bought one of these and it doesn't work in the car. Took SIM down to Jaguar and they also state its an incompatible SIM by trying it in other cars.

Anyone else had this issue?

SIM came with mobile number that is OK for incoming calls, o/g fail as expected but to no funds, which I suspect may be the issue as SIM maybe be one that can be changed to voice use.

Still working perfectly in my car .
Mine never came with a mobile number , so wondering if you’ve got the right sim??

Just pushed it straight in the slot as above
Did you buy it from Amazon as above?

Yep, bought from that link and same packaging wording as above.
All SIM's should come with a phone number, even if data only but I didn't expect it to route calls to it. but that would tie in with it not working

edited - contacted three and they confirm its broadband only, so sending a replacement SIM.

That’s good sounds like incorrectly packaged or a mistake made somewhere along the line.
Glad your sorted anyway.
