Find Anywhere Fast: Jaguar Land Rover and What3words Deliver World-First Navigation Solution
● Jaguar Land Rover first to deliver ‘always-on’ what3words capability over the air to customers, ensuring drivers can utilise the system without a data connection
● what3words has given every 3m x 3m square in the world an address: a unique combination of three random words
● ‘Always-on’ capability operates without the need for a phone signal
● Integrated into Jaguar and Land Rover Pivi Pro infotainment through HERE Technologies navigation software
● Free to download for Jaguar and Land Rover customers with Pivi Pro in 150 countries and 24 languages
 
Thursday 9 June 2022, Dubai, United Arab Emirates: Jaguar Land Rover is offering customers accurate and precise navigation even in the most remote locations, by becoming the first automotive manufacturer to integrate what3words global location technology into vehicles already on the road through a software-over-the-air (SOTA) update.
 
what3words has divided the globe into a grid of 3m x 3m squares, and given each one a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. Through the ‘always-on’ technology, which works without the need for mobile connectivity, new and existing customers will be able to navigate to any precise location in the world using just three words.
 
This is part of the latest SOTA upgrade offered to customers this year. In total, Jaguar Land Rover has completed more than 1.3 million vehicle-level updates and more than three million engine control unit updates as part of its always-on, always-connected capability, delivering modern luxury to customers. 
 
Once updated, the system allows customers to input what3words addresses directly into the navigation bar on the Pivi Pro Infotainment system. The integration has been delivered by HERE Technologies, Jaguar Land Rover’s navigation partner for the past 25 years. HERE’s end-to-end, connected driving services include turn-by-turn guidance, real-time traffic and on and off-street parking that enable a personalised experience, intuitively guiding drivers through their entire journey..
  
Integrated what3words is available in all new and existing Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles fitted with its advanced Pivi Pro infotainment system.      
 
Mark Carter, Navigation Product Owner, Digital Product Platform at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “This world-changing technology is all about simplification, providing our customers with a seamless modern luxury experience that means they can find their way anywhere in the world without having to worry about connectivity. The partnership with what3words, enabled by HERE Technologies, further highlights our world-leading SOTA capability which allows us to offer services that are always on and always connected.”
 
Chris Sheldrick, co-founder and CEO of what3words, said: “This partnership ensures you can get to the exact destination of your next adventure with ease and in comfort. Jaguar Land Rover recognised the benefits our innovative technology brings to those on the road, and we’re proud that our partnership with HERE Technologies has made this possible.”
 
Gino Ferru, General Manager EMEAR and Senior Vice President at HERE Technologies, said: “Over the years of working with Jaguar Land Rover, we have gained a deep understanding of their innovative thinking and technical requirements, thanks to which we have been able to build industry-leading navigation solutions. It is with great pleasure that we can now announce the latest step of our partnership: integrating what3words to Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles globally.”
