    Questions for N.A. Owners

    Have a few questions to the North American owners. 1. Cruise control: anyway to know the exact speed you set the cruise? Ie. cruise setspeed 40mph. I heard the UK cars at least have the MPH showing on the bottom righthand corner of the center display. My car is at the dealer again (long story short they did something and they now need to have someone airbrush a small section), and I don't remember seeing the MPH in the center display. I've had my car for 1.5 weeks now. 2. Anyway to program the folding mirrors in the menu screen? Can't find it in the menu screen as I like to keep it open most of the time but the occasional folding morrors if I'm parked in tight spot. TIA!

    So far, having the speed visible is not an option...TOO BAD as even my VW Tiguan had it!
    Also in the US Evoque, another missing point is a COMPASS, which you have no indication whatsoever of your direction...even in the NAV system, you just go and set NORTH UP, but that doesn't help.

    I am also seeking for someone who could figure that out, please!
    Thank you,
    regards

    Thanks brazeagle for the info. I did confirm that the UK Evoque does show MPH in the center display. So why not give that to everyone else? Also, dealer gave me a LR4 for a loaner right now and it shows Cruise Setspeed at xxMPH. Figured the Range Rover should have that if the Land Rover cars have it. Wonder if the dealer can program to have that displayed on our cars.

    As for the folding side mirrors, why not allow the owner program themselves if they want them folded or not? The manual advises the folding side mirrors are program through the dealers. My Jaguar (same company Tata) can program via the menu screen.

    Other than that....love the car!

    I found a pic showing the Eurocars shows speed (this case KMH) on the center display. I don't recall seeing this on my car (I'll have to double check when I get my car back from the dealer) as I would have notice it from driving it for a week.

    So I contacted LR USA and they checked and advised the U.S. models don't have the speedo reading on the center display.

    What's wrong with a glance at the speedometer to see the speed? Is there some technical reason to see the speed elsewhere or more accurately than the speedometer?

    I usually like to know exactly what I set my cruise speed at. I just figured if the LR cars have it why not the Range Rovers especially when the UK Evoque have them. How much more will it cost them to do so....just saying.

    I would rather have a readout of what gear I'm in while in Drive.

    Why not have both?

    I find the cruise speed most useful when tapping up/down to change it in one mph increments.

    With the steering wheel in my comfortable driving position the analog gauge isn't easy to read at all. Not having the number on the center display is actually a huge complaint of mine. Especially since its available on the uk model this should simply be software. As to your gear display... It's already there and this portion of the US display is essentially unused. I guess I just don't understand why you would argue that adding this is undesirable. If anything not having this display could be a safety issue as people might be distracted trying to view the speed numbers behind the steering wheel!
