Multimedia in the Jaguar XF
The multimedia technology in the XF encompasses entertainment, information, communications and navigation systems.
INTUITIVE VISUAL CONTROLS
Most of the XF’s multimedia systems can be controlled from the easy-to-use 7" full-colour Touch-screen in the centre console. The optional Portable Audio Interface works through the screen to provide full control of an iPod® or MP3 player, displaying details of playlists and music stored by artist, album and genre.
The XF comes with one of three superb audio systems, depending on the model chosen. All have CD players and radios and are compatible with WMA and MP3 players, as well as USB storage devices. The driver and front-seat passenger have full control of the output through the central colour screen.
- The Jaguar 400W sound system has ten speakers, with a woofer and tweeter unit in each door. For good bass reproduction, the woofer is mounted much higher than it would be in a conventional system.
- The Jaguar 600W premium sound system has a powerful DSP amplifier and 11 speakers, including a sub-woofer for enhanced bass reproduction.
- The Bowers & Wilkins 1200W system has 17 speakers and features Dolby® Pro-Logic II Surround Sound for extraordinary sound quality throughout the cabin. Designed and tuned for the new XF by Bowers & Wilkins, the clarity of the system’s sound reproduction is enhanced by Kevlar® cones in the larger speakers and aluminium domes on the tweeters. All systems can be fitted with a digital radio tuner.
The XFR, XF Premium Luxury and XF Portfolio all give the option of using the 7" Touch-screen as a television, provided the car is stationary. Up to nine analogue and nine digital channel settings can be stored.
BLUETOOTH® PHONE AND AUDIO
The new XF’S advanced Bluetooth® technology can link compatible mobile phones to the new XF’s in-built hands-free telephone system, without the need for wires or cradles. Calls can be made and accepted either through the central screen, the steering wheel controls or the optional JaguarVoice™ feature.
It’s also possible to play streamed music from MP3 players with Bluetooth® through the new XF’s audio system.
HARD DISK NAVIGATION
Enjoy faster searches and journey planning thanks to Extended Navigation on the optional hard disk navigation system. Steer clear of unexpected delays with up-to-date congestion alerts, receive alternative route suggestions and even nearby filling station locations when fuel is running low. Featuring a faster processor and increased memory, the system offers more intuitive functionality, reduced route calculation time and improved vehicle positioning when GPS signal is poor or lost, plus greater map coverage with updates available more frequently.
With the new XF’s JaguarVoice™ option, the driver presses the ‘voice’ button on the steering wheel and can then use spoken commands to control the audio, climate control and navigation systems, as well as the colour screen and Bluetooth® connection. The system incorporates the latest ‘Say what you see’ technology, allowing the driver to respond to on-screen prompts. JaguarVoice™ can be programmed to recognise the user’s voice, which helps the navigation system respond specific requests such as ‘restaurant’ or ‘Jaguar dealer’.
