Jaguar Land Rover enhances navigation precision, even in remote localtions
Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has announced a software over-the-air (SOTA) update on its range of car models that, according to it, would be able to further enhance navigation capabilities while also adding to the convenience by integrating what3words global location technology. What3words refers to a technology that, to put simply, gives every 3m x 3m square in the world an address which could lead to accurate navigation commands and results.
JLR, in a press statement, explained that once a system has received this update, the owner or occupant of a vehicle would be able to put in the what3words address directly into the Pivi Pro Infotainment system in the cabin. Also important to note here is that every model sold by the brand which comes with Pivi Pro infotainment system will get the update.
