Land Rover SUV To Offer Tile Tracking App Integration
Do you misplace or lose things from time to time? It can be really frustrating when you can’t find what you’re looking for, such as a book, your glasses, or another important item. But the days of losing important items may be over thanks to Land Rover and Tile, a tracking app that the automaker plans to integrate into infotainment systems found in Land Rover models available from your Chicago, IL area Land Rover dealers.
Tile uses small Bluetooth® enabled tiles that can be attached to just about any item to allow you to keep track of it via your smartphone. The app is integrated into the Land Rover InControl Apps™ connectivity feature available as part of the Land Rover InControl Touch™ multimedia systems available in 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport SUVs and other models. The app can be accessed through the vehicle’s touchscreen display. It can help you create a list of “Essential” items. It can also provide directions to the last known whereabouts of a missing item. If you can’t find an item and it’s still inside the vehicle, the app allows you to sound a loud alarm on the item’s tile tracker to help you find it.
According to the automaker’s Director of Connected Technologies & Apps, Peter Virk, “Losing your wallet or leaving your child’s sports bag behind isn’t just an inconvenience. The realization you’ve misplaced something important can be a cause of distraction. Our unique partnership with Tile means customers can check the status of tagged items using the vehicle’s touchscreen so forgotten items will be a thing of the past.”
Mike Farley, the CEO of Tile, the maker of the app, expressed excitement to work with Land Rover on such an innovative project. “We’re really excited to be partnering with [Land Rover],” said Farley, as reported in the automaker’s press release. “We believe this integration will provide many benefits such as improved assurance and peace of mind about the whereabouts of essential items, helping drivers save time before they embark on journeys.”
The Tile app is just one more way that Land Rover ensures that you’ll have a comfortable, luxurious, and enjoyable experience driving in its SUVs like the 2017 Land Rover Discovery Sport and other amazing models from Land Rover Hinsdale. Stop in today to learn more!
