Entertainment and navigation
XJ drivers and passengers enjoy a range of superb entertainment, phone and navigation systems, all integrated within the innovative Jaguar iTech platform.
The heart of the XJ’s multimedia functions is a 30GB hard disk drive housed in the centre console. As well as holding the car’s sophisticated navigation system, it can store music from up to ten CDs (uncompressed) and will connect to audio, video and memory devices – either through its USB connection, an auxiliary jack-plug or Bluetooth®.

The XJ range offers a choice of three state-of-the-art audio systems, depending on the model chosen. All have digital, AM and FM radio tuners, and play music from the hard disk or an external source, such as an MP3 player. In addition, each system features Audyssey MultiEQ®, which reacts to the acoustics of the cabin to provide distortion-free sound – the XJ is the first car to be fitted with this technology.
- The Jaguar 400W sound system features 12 high-efficiency speakers and Dynamic Volume Control, which actively compensates for noise in the cabin.
- The Jaguar 600W premium sound system has a powerful DSP amplifier, 14 speakers and three extra audio channels, available through WhiteFire™ wireless digital headphones, when selected with Dual View or Rear Seat Entertainment.
- The Bowers & Wilkins 1200W premium sound system rivals the very best home hi-fi. It has 20 speakers, powered through 15 channels, and features Dolby® Pro-Logic IIx and DTS™ Neo:6 encoders and three extra audio channels, available through WhiteFire™ wireless digital headphones, when selected with Dual View or Rear Seat Entertainment.
TELEVISION AND VIDEO
The XJ features an 8 inch Touch-screen in the centre console as standard. Innovative Dual View functionality allows the front seat passenger to enjoy the TV or their choice of film, while the Touch-screen continues to display the navigation system or the audio, climate and infotainment controls to the driver. To further enhance your enjoyment 8 inch rear screens are available. These will show digital or analogue TV, or DVDs – either from the internal hard drive or an external player attached to the media hub. For the ultimate in rear seat entertainment, the new Premium Rear Seat Pack for long wheelbase models features 10.2inch screens with Rear Media Interface, remote control and 2 sets of WhiteFire wireless headphones.

The XJ Bluetooth® system allows the driver to make and receive calls using controls on the Touch-screen or steering wheel, or with spoken commands. Up to five mobile phones can use the car’s Bluetooth® connections. And Bluetooth® Streaming Technology allows audio content to be streamed wirelessly into the XJ’s entertainment system.
Jaguar Bluetooth® Connectivity Centre >
The XJ satellite navigation system is based in the internal hard disk drive, which makes it easier to update and gives much faster access to data. The system can be controlled through the Touch-screen or with spoken commands, and shows information on the Touch-screen and in the virtual instruments. As well as giving directions, it offers congestion alerts, with possible alternative routes, including a new 'Eco route' option that optimises the roads used on a journey to minimise fuel consumption and emissions

XJ drivers have complete flexibility about how they operate the car’s multimedia systems, whether they are choosing a piece of music, taking a phone call or asking the navigation system for directions.
- The principle control panel is the high-definition Touch-screen in the centre console, which displays all available multimedia options.
- The virtual instruments are also used to offer details of multimedia options – the tachometer to the right of the speedometer is temporarily replaced by alert messages, such as low fuel, or prompts for spoken commands – for example, a list of music tracks or phone numbers to choose from.
With Jaguar’s Interactive Voice system, many multimedia functions can be controlled with simple spoken commands. The technology is designed to cut the risk of misunderstood commands and works by giving the driver a list of possible options in the virtual instruments.
- Steering wheel controls are another way to operate the multimedia systems – they will switch on Interactive Voice, for instance, and allow the driver to toggle through lists displayed in the virtual instruments, adjust the volume and choose pre-set radio stations.
- Rear-seat passengers have their own Touch-screen remote controller for both the main entertainment system and the video screens mounted in the front-seat headrests.
