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 AND AUDIO
The new XF’s optional navigation system is based on an in-built hard disk drive, which allows for much quicker searches and route calculations than conventional systems. Navigation information is initially uploaded through a DVD drive, which replaces the XF’s standard CD slot when the navigation system is specified.
This DVD drive can also be used to play audio CDs or, while the car is stationary, video DVDs. In addition, material from up to ten CDs can be imported onto the hard disk drive and played directly through the new XF’s audio system.
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’.
