Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) has launched a separate company tasked with quickly developing apps and on-demand services. The move is part of a trend among automakers to take direct charge of technologies that will redefine the car industry.

Britain-based JLR, which is owned by India’s Tata Group, said InMotion, as the new unit is called, will be an independent business that will have the agility and independence to move quickly in response to market requirements. InMotion will next month already start testing several different car-sharing and car-ownership models.

“InMotion provides us with an opportunity to provide engaging and invaluable experiences to both new and existing customers globally,” Adrian Hallmark, JLR’s group strategy director, said in a press statement.

InMotion, which is based in London, will derive input from the automotive and technology industries to develop new products for connected cars. The company will employ up to 30 people.

JLR said last week that the Jaguar XFL will be the first model to be built at its Chery Jaguar Land Rover Changshu plant in China. The XFL is the long-wheelbase version of the XF mid-size sedan.

November 2018, ; VAIS Technology, Englewood CO. has released new satellite radio integrated solutions specifically designed for 2019 Mercedes Benz and Land Rover. This solution allows owners of these 2019 models to add SiriusXM® satellite radio to their existing factory stereo, without compromising functionality.

“Since 2003, VAIS Technology have been developing satellite radio adapters for vehicles that aren’t equipped from the factory with SiriusXM® tuners,” Dennis Hopper, EVP, says. “While satellite radio is more popular than ever, many new OEM vehicles still don’t come equipped from the factory with satellite tuners. For 2019 several more OEM’s have removed satellite tuners from their platforms. Over the last few years Kia, Hyundai, Jeep, GMC and Chevrolet have removed sat tuners from their base model vehicles. VAIS Technology develops simple, easy to install integrated solutions that add satellite radio, but preserve factory functions.”

The new 2019 integration kits provide coverage for Mercedes Benz (GSR-MB03), and Land Rover (GSR-LR03) vehicles. Also, all these models are compatible with the GSR-UV01 (universal unit) which can be flashed using online software. This allows dealers to only stock one unit to do almost all applications.

This adapter connects directly to the original factory radio and allows the vehicle owner to listen to satellite radio through the existing factory system. The VAIS integrated solution also allows for full control of satellite radio functions - changing stations, setting presets, steering wheel functions, etc.
