An Alpine fully integrated rear seat entertainment system is now available as an optional feature in Land Rover’s Discovery 3 model. This system is actually only available as a factory fit but potential buyers of this Land Rover SUV now have the option of having it as one of Land Rover Discovery parts. The rear entertainment system includes a six-disc DVD players to keep you company for hours on end during long drives, and twin screens so that both the rear seat passengers can have a screen of their own. The twin screen also allows the passengers to view or listen to their own source of DVD. As this feature is already integrated in the infotainment network, it allows front seat passengers to have control over the viewing sources and functions of the rear passengers through its “Supervisory Mode.” This is an ideal mode for parents wanting to take control of what their children watch.
The twin screens included in the entertainment system are placed in the front headrests. Each of the screens is 6.5 inches widescreen and are independently operated so that the rear passengers can have the choice of hat they like to watch.
Both Land Rover and Alpine, a specialist in infotainment systems, have worked hand in hand in developing this rear seat entertainment system. The partnership for this development has resulted to a unique entertainment system which offers higher levels of safety, security, and integration.
The OEM Manager of Alpine, Keith Price, said, “The components are securely fitted, tested and designed specifically for Land Rover. “This allows us to eliminate many of the problems of safety, interference and usability of aftermarket solutions that customers don’t like. The bespoke software allows front seat passengers control of the system too, increasing convenience and avoiding unnecessary stops to turn the system on or change DVD. It all helps to make the journey a little more pleasant.”
All the engineers that worked together in developing this unique system have made meticulous efforts to check all details such as brightness of the screen, viewing angle, off-road capability, and control functions. This system is already in line with the program of Land Rover and is somewhat similar to the rear entertainment system products of Range Rover Sport and Range Rover. This is already available to order from Land Rover on Discovery 3.
