Jaguar Land Rover has developed a vintage-look infotainment system that will allow owners of its classic vehicles to inject some modern-day tech into their vehicle without sacrificing that old-school look.
The retro look infotainment system, simply called the Classic Infotainment System, fits into the single DIN sized gap most classic cars have for a radio head unit. It’s operated by a small 3.5-inch touchscreen and features satellite navigation, smartphone integration with Bluetooth connectivity and AM-FM radio. It’s programmed with up to 32 languages, will come in both black or silver and in Jaguar or Land Rover branded versions.
This infotainment system is marketed toward owners of classic Jags and Land Rovers, such as E-Types and Defenders. It’s very similar to the vintage-look infotainment system from Porsche’s classic cars division, which also features a small 3.5-inch touchscreen display and is compatible with today’s smartphones. As classic cars fall into the hands of younger folks, the more consumers may look to have them be upfitted with modern-day technology, hence the advent of systems such as these.
If you own a classic Jag or Land Rover but miss having turn-by-turn navigation and other modern-day tech while out on the road, you learn more about the vintage-look infotainment system at Jaguar Classic Part’s website at this link.
