Does anyone have the "Apps" (AKA "Land Rover Apps" app) working with the regular InControl Touch (Not Pro) stereo?

I have the "Remote" app set-up, registered and working for remote start etc, but can't for the life of me figure out how to get the actual apps to work (aka so you can more directly control Spotify and other apps they allow directly).

The only thing I can figure (unless I'm completely missing something simple) is that these only work with the Touch Pro, but haven't been able to find anything that states that feature is only compatible with the Pro's...

2018 Disco Sport HSE, InControl Touch with Meridian.

Yes, I have that portion activated and it actually has been working flawlessly so far. Seemed a little frilly at first, but its been handy.

I meant the actual "apps" that function kind of similar to CarPlay. The app is Land Rover Apps, as opposed to Land rover Remote.

Should be able to select it from the infotainment system when the phone is connected, but I can't find that and am not sure if something isn't enabled or if its only a feature with the Pro. According to LR's compatibility checker, it should work with the Regular touch, but I don't have it available.


Wasnt aware of this feature until Fall of last yr. You have to contact the dealer and the tech dept will send some signal to yr car and you confirm via the flashing lights in the console. The remote start and temp is quite a nice feature

Will let you know after I talk to the Dealer, but this seems to be yet another option as opposed to a capability of the system itself. I'm guessing mine wasn't "built" with it, which unfortunately will also mean it can't be added.

Not the end of the world, but I was kind of hoping it would be a consolation prize given CarPlay isn't going to happen.

I’ve tried to get the Apps and I think I’m in the same boat, just doesn’t seem compatible with my system.

Thanks. Yeah, I've pretty much given up on the apps at this point.

May go this route: https://www.naviplus.com.au/online-...d-Auto-&-Apple-CarPlay-Package-Kit-p103061670

I've got a '16 and I've used the Apps. However it's a terrible system. I've tested Spotify - the pros are that the album art shows up on screen and you can switch what you're listening to (vs just skipping songs), HOWEVER the cons are that it has to be connected via USB and if your phone locks it STOPS playing.

Because Land Rover has put zero effort into this app/technology there are very few integrated apps, so you're really just better off using your bluetooth to connect your apps.
