Default Jaguar making modern infotainments for our cars

I like that Jaguar is supporting our cars, and they are certainly aesthetically pleasing and complimentary to our cars ....and if they where up to 500 dollars, I would get one, but they are over 1000.00. Thatís too much for what these system can do. At over 1k they would need to have Adroid and Applecarplay capabilities.

If the colored screen was just typical 80ies LCD it would be a lot more suitable...

Default new systems

I have been looking at the Pioneer AVH-3400 NEX with fold out screen. It has Android and apple Carplay. I may buy this one. Another option is the ALpine ILX-F309 but its pricy and may block buttons. Check them out.

It's good that they are offering any type of support for older models. This should be patronized as much as possible in my opinion.

I agree. I buy all my parts now from JCP.

Problem with this is the price vs the technology they are offering. If this was 500, I would buy it because of how attractive it looks on the dash, but at over 1,250 dollars with no back up camera and no apple car play/android phone, itís really not worth replacing my current Alpine CDE HD 149BT.

That's understandable if you already have a nice head unit. As long as I have Bluetooth or at least an aux I am content.

Sorry, since your name is AJ16er and this is the XJS forum I assumed you did own an XJS - my bad.
Yes it's great they are doing this but 1200 pounds ($1500) is a bit over the top for what they are offering.

More than a bit.

Its three times what they should be charging, and even that would be twice what itís worth! Theyíd get a bunch of us to buy it at $500, but in reality each and every buyer would have some remorse over the missing features that are found in head units that are, at best priced half of that!

I support the notion of patronizing anything still being made to support our cars, but this is too much to ask!
