Tend to agree a bit, but Jaguars TFT instrument cluster is still one of the best. Audi is really leading the pack with the virtual cockpit and google earth map display. Im sure Jaguar will catch up in the next few years.I disagree with the map on the IP. I think it is terrible, rendering other important info (like speed) to a footnote in the lower right corner. If the map took up 1/3 to 1/2 the IP, then it would be very good. Also, you must select it every time you want it.
Jaguar's HMI (human-machine interface) work is very poor.
I did the same thing, but just to impress the co-worker riding with me. I figure that if you have it then flaunt it! Ha Ha.Some of you will hate me but while on a trip using the navigation system, I put the map on both displays at the same time! I don't know why, I just love it that way.
I agree! Combine that format with the heads-up display, and I'm ready to roll.I took the FP on a 1,100mi road trip two weeks ago, with 2 trips of about 9-10 hours each. I played with a bunch of ICTP cockpit configurations (partly to cut the boredom), and I have to say that by far my favorite was having the map in the instrument cluster, instead of on the dash. I'm converted... its now my default setup (instead of the standard gauge view) whenever I want to take the car out on anything more than a neighborhood drive.
Passengers could adjust the dash radio/climate/phone a familiar way without interfering with navigation, and I really liked having the perspective of upcoming road curves/changes right in my line of sight with the IC. I'd come up on a hill and would know in advance if there's a turn, etc. on the other side. Super helpful at night on long, dark roads.
@Trek, I also had the Nav on both displays for a while, and its great driving around town. Its still pretty cool to have the entire cockpit change when you make a turn, and the perspective on the IC display version is just different enough to make it still useful and not 100% redundant (see above).
All and all, I think this is a really well thought-out system. Even with the (being fixed) bugs.
This! I'd assume checking the map box in display menu means it's permanent but it's not. Anyone found a way to hv it default to the map when the car is restarted?I too like map directly in front of me. Only gripe is having to use display menu every time I restart vehicle.
Maybe it's that way so you can readily observe any dashboard warning lights on start-up and/or because NAV is not ready immediately after you punch the start button.This!
