NOKIA: Jaguar Land Rover chooses HERE to navigate the future

Berlin
- Last week's New York Auto Show saw the launch of the all-new Jaguar XF, the
most connected Jaguar yet and the first to offer Jaguar's innovative
InControl Touch Pro Infotainment System.

With decades of experience in developing location services for the automotive
and consumer industries, HERE was a natural choice for Jaguar Land Rover to
collaborate with for InControl Touch Pro. As a leader in navigation, mapping
and location experiences, HERE integrated intelligent location technologies
for the system, as well as for Jaguar's smartphone companion apps, giving
drivers the smartest guidance experiences available.

Built on the HERE Auto platform, the InControl Touch Pro Infotainment System
reimagines what's possible with connected car technology, with the most
comprehensive set of driver-focused location services across multiple
screens. With InControl Touch Pro, Jaguar XF drivers have a car that learns
their commuting patterns and preferences over time, combining that knowledge
with live information from the vehicle and its environment to deliver
real-time and relevant information at the right moment.

"Today's drivers want more than standard navigation or a way-finding app,"
said Floris van de Klashorst, vice president of Connected Driving at HERE.
"Together with Jaguar Land Rover, we have developed a guidance system that we
believe stands out in the industry. It combines the intuitiveness of a
smartphone with the benefits of being deeply integrated into the car, with
the result being an experience that we believe drivers will enjoy day in, day
out."

A new, more personal approach evolves from navigation to guidance

HERE Auto takes a new approach to guidance, going beyond navigation to give a
personalised experience that intuitively guides drivers through their entire
journey, both inside and outside the car. A continuous connection to the HERE
location cloud enables InControl Touch Pro to anticipate drivers' needs,
solving many of the challenges - from the complex to the mundane - that they
face on every drive.

From planning to parking in one easy step

In the new Jaguar XF, the system actively syncs information from the driver's
smartphone companion app or computer to the car, so they only have to enter a
route once for the whole journey. Drivers can plan a trip at home and the
route automatically shows up when they turn on the system in the car. If they
make a spontaneous stop along the way, the system intuitively knows to keep
routing to the final destination when they get back in the car.

The connection to HERE's location cloud means that as drivers near the end of
their journey, the screen switches to approach mode, showing a street level
view of their destination and one-touch options to find an available parking
space. Images for the street level view and for the maps used by InControl
Touch Pro are gathered and constantly updated by HERE's worldwide fleet of
data collection vehicles. And when drivers park and leave the car, the
journey continues on the smartphone companion app to get them to their final
destination.

A car that learns your drives

In addition to the customisable home screens which InControl Touch Pro offers
on its 10.2" touch screen, HERE Auto technology allows the Jaguar XF to learn
driving routines over time, whether daily commutes, school drop-offs or
regular pit stops. With personalized profiles, drivers can also customize
one-touch recommendations for preferred fuel brands or other favourite
destinations.

Traffic? We may have found the answer

A connection to live traffic information through the HERE location cloud means
that InControl Touch Pro will automatically suggest alternative routes to
avoid delays. HERE aggregates and analyses traffic data to reflect real-world
road conditions, from sources including live probes, fixed sensors,
government data and more than a trillion historical traffic records. With
HERE's traffic data, Jaguar XF drivers can get to their destination faster
and more efficiently.

Using HERE Auto technology means that InControl Touch Pro can offer in-car
services once possible only on smartphones, such as sharing an estimated time
of arrival with another person with just one touch. If the driver should
later encounter traffic, the system automatically sends an updated ETA to the
other person.

Connecting the car with the world outside

InControl Touch Pro is integrated with the Jaguar XF's in-car sensors and
connected to the HERE location cloud. If they are low on fuel, drivers get
suggestions for the nearest fuel stations from their favourite brand, or with
the lowest prices to fill up at.

"Jaguar Land Rover understands that consumer devices have rapidly changed
driver expectations so they turned to HERE for our deep experience in
providing solutions for automotive and consumers," said Bruno Bourguet,
senior vice president of Sales and Business Development at HERE. "As the only
company that can deliver end-to-end connected driving services on a global
scale, we are proud to continue our long term relationship with Jaguar Land
Rover and enable their drivers to enjoy great experiences inside and outside
of their cars."

"The automotive industry's focus must expand from the connected vehicle to the
connected driver and ultimately to the connected customer," said Thilo
Koslowski, Vice President and Automotive Practice Leader at Gartner.
"Automotive market leaders will create a smart, cloud-based and
cross-platform offering to provide customers with a seamless digital content
experience across all of their devices, including the car."
