“The Salatuk App is an award winning and extremely popular app in the MENA region and it fits perfectly with Jaguar Land Rover’s mission to allow our owners to personalise their vehicle in a very detailed way, offering in-car infotainment applications that transfer directly from their smartphone to the car.With the Holy Month upon us, this is the perfect time to introduce Salatuk to our suite of  InControl Apps” said Salman Sultan, Public Relations and Social Media Manager for Jaguar Land Rover MENA.

Jaguar Land Rover’s InControl suite of services, allows customers to access their smartphone apps on the vehicle’s centre console touch screen by connecting via the vehicle’s USB port.
