Incontrol

Post by Expresspete » Sat Jun 27, 2020 7:29 pm

Hi gang, finally picked up my new (well new to me) MY20 XE S from the dealer this afternoon and being a bit of a technophobe (I’m from the generation that used pencil & paper :D ) can anyone tell me if it’s possible to personalise the InControl touch screen when using Apple Carplay. What I’d like, if it’s feasible is place the phone icon, audible and Waze maps on the first screen - any help from you knowledgeable guys is most appreciated

Not as far as I'm aware. But you can customise the "my home" screen, which is just one swipe to the right.

If you mean to change the CarPlay interface itself. Then on your phone go to Settings > General > CarPlay

Tap your car in the list, then tap “Customise”

You can add and remove and re-order apps on this screen. Weirdly it used to show the actual CarPlay Layout on on iOS 13.5 its no longer doing that and just gives me a list.

But you should be able to drag those icons up and down, add and remove from there etc.

This only affects CarPlay, not anything on InControl itself. Assuming CarPlay in the Jag works the same as any other (which it should since it all runs from the phone) the above should work.

No worries I don’t currently have CarPlay in any car so had to try and recall from memory, should work fine. When I had it on my A4 (retrofit kit) I definitely customised the layout to have most used apps on the first screen.

Likely going to look into a retro kit for the Jag soon

Apologies, missed the bit about CarPlay in the original question. Haven't a clue about Cp or Auto as I don't use them.
