Land Rover Discovery: Incontrol WI-FI

InControl Wi-Fi allows in-car connection to the internet using a 3G connection. It utilises the roof mounted antenna, increasing the reliability of continuous 3G connection while on the move. Better data connection strength is achieved, compared to a smartphone in the vehicle, as the metal structure of the vehicle restricts data reception.

Note: This feature requires the Land Rover InControl Remote app.

A 3G Data only SIM card, sometimes called an Internet only SIM or Mobile broadband SIM, must be inserted into the SIM card holder. The SIM card reader utilizes a 'Mini-SIM' interface. If your SIM card is a different size, for example, 'Micro-SIM', an adaptor or replacement SIM card will be required.

Note: If your SIM card has previously been used, and a Personal Identification Number (PIN) has been set, remove the PIN before using the SIM card in the vehicle.

The SIM card holder is located on the left side of the luggage area behind a removable panel.

  1. Press the button to release the SIM card holder.
  2. Remove the holder from the SIM slot.
  3. Insert the SIM card into the holder and reinsert the holder into the SIM slot.

    Gently push it back to fully close.

  4. The USB port is for service use only.

Make sure the SIM card is located correctly in the card holder. Failure to do so may damage the SIM card or SIM card reader.
