The h264 update is an update which has to be applied by a JLR dealer. It’s not an over the air update. A Jan 2020 vehicle probably had it applied already, but you can check either by creating a Topix account and looking to see if it is outstanding for your car, or phoning your dealer and asking them to check on Topix. It contained a number of improvements to the car but is referred to by JLR as the “range update”.Jaycee369 wrote: ↑Mon May 18, 2020 10:56 pmHi all
I've had my iPace since mid-Jan, but like many of us am now locked down in the UK and unable to go far with it...great shame as I love it!
What is H264 mentioned in this thread? I guess it's some software or firmware update. I didn't realise the updates were supposed to improve the range..I thought it was mainly cosmetic and delivered small changes to eg InControl.
Please advise: How do I check which version I have, if I need to update how do I do so and what differences can I expect to see?
Am not exactly sure what you mean by varying range.
The range you see displaced is calculating by the car, based on your recent style of driving.
However, if you get in the car and immediately set it in ECO, the range will change (increase). Then, for example, switch on the airco on full blast and you will see a significant and immediate drop.
EVERYTHING on the car is run from the battery. On the ECO-data screen, there is a button which can show you how much range is used by various things like the airco, the heated seats, the fan etc.
For the record, I left home this morning at 100% SoC with a displayed range of 454 km. Beautiful weather, very little wind, took the scenic route.
Now, I am at the North Sea cost, have driven 78 km and the car still displays 385 km range left. So, my range could be 385+78 = 463 km if I keep up the same easy driving style.
The displayed range is based on your most recent driving. It used to be an average of the last 500 miles but that has been reduced significantly (they haven’t stated to what though). So if you hammer it down the motorway for a hundred miles your GOM will reduce on your next charge. Drive at 50 for a while it will go back up.
