With everyone always on the go these days it’s easy to leave things behind. But the new Discovery Sport is here to make forgotten wallets and missing keys a thing of the past, thanks to a new advanced tracking application aptly named, “Tile”.
This genius app uses Tile tags, which are tiny Bluetooth trackers that can be attached to important items and used to track their whereabouts using smartphone technology. Once the app is initiated using the central touchscreen, customers are alerted if specified items are not inside the vehicle and are even able to get on-screen directions to their last known location.
Peter Virk, Jaguar Land Rover’s Director of Connected Technologies & Apps, said: “Losing your wallet or leaving your child’s sports kit behind isn’t just an inconvenience. The realization you’ve mislaid something important can be a cause of distraction. Our unique partnership with Tile means customers can check the status of tagged items using Discovery Sport’s touchscreen, so forgotten items will be a thing of the past.”
Jaguar Land Rover is the first automotive company to integrate Tile with its in-car entertainment system. The partnership allows customers to establish a list of “Essentials” using the vehicle touchscreen, which are always checked when the app is initiated. If items are lost inside the vehicle, customers are able to sound a 90-decibel alarm on the Tile tag, to help locate them.
The Tile smartphone app is compatible with both Android and Apple platforms and the number of items that can be tracked is limitless.
