    Hi, have a 2005 D3 HSE with the HK unit. Would like to add a reverse camera to the screen and try and stop having to re pair phone every time ignition is off

    Has anyone flashed a CCF file to a Disco Sport yet?

    There's a couple of options regarding the phone.

    #1 is to fit a phone module from a 2010-2011 Discovery 4, like here D4 Bluetooth Phone into D3

    #2 is the aftermarket phone module from MoBridge, like here MoBridge anyone?

    For the reversing camera your easiest option is to use an external GVIF video interface box, which will override the video signal from the Nav module and show the camera image, this is triggered when reverse gear is selected. There are cheap cameras available from eBay or Aliexpress specifically for the D3, replacing one of the numberplate lights, like this Car Reversing Parking Camera Land Rover Discovery 3 & 4 Reverse Safety View SUV | eBay, for the GVIF box there are heaps of different versions, this is pretty much the cheapest one I've come across GVIF car video interface for Lexus, Toyota, Land Rover, Cadillac, Jaguar

    The standard touchscreen in the D3 does not support a reverse camera directly plugged in, it's a software issue. There is a trick to change the setting of the D3 screen into "L322 mode" that will allow a camera input, but there's a few side effects that come with this method, that need some workarounds, and a couple of buttons on the screen that do not work as a result.

    Yes, it's possible on the Disco Sport up to 2017MY. I can't speak for the makers of aftermarket diagnostic tools, but it's possible with SDD.

    This will change on the 2018MY cars though, only the DoIP/Pathfinder will work on a 2018MY L550.
    But there is another issue, Pathfinder has no CCF editing functions, and JLR has no intention of adding them to the software.
    There is a project underway by a couple of clever guys to create a CCF editing tool for these newer models, will be ready sometime next year.

    ------------------------------------
    What is PATHFINDER?

    PATHFINDER is the all new diagnostic system specifically designed and released for the introduction
    of the following vehicles.

    Land Rover:
    - Range Rover L405 (17MY)
    - Range Rover Sport L494 (17MY)
    - New Discovery L462 (17MY)
    - Evoque L538 (18MY)
    - Discovery Sport L550 (18MY)
    - Range Rover Velar L560 (18MY)

    Jaguar:
    - F-TYPE X152 (18MY)
    - F-PACE X761 (18MY)
    - XE X760 (18MY)
    - XF X260 (18MY)
    - E-PACE X540 (18MY)

    These vehicles have been designed to communicate with new high speed communication protocols.
    This allows faster software download, programming and communication, making it faster to use and
    saving valuable time.

    These vehicles can ONLY communicate with the all new PATHFINDER diagnostic software using the
    new Diagnostics over Internet Protocol (DoIP) Vehicle Communication Interface (VCI) unit which
    conforms to the new communication protocol.

    I was finally able to get one of these DiOP units, just arrived last week...

    They certainly make it hard for the diagnostic tool suppliers to keep up. I wonder if thatís part of the strategy.

    There is certainly no intention to make it easy for 3rd parties to work on or modify the vehicles.

    The change to the DoIP unit is because of adopting the Flexray communication protocols FlexRay - Wikipedia

    This is not just a JLR thing, most of the major European manufacturers are going down this road. Bosch is one of the driving forces behind it, and it just so happens that Bosch supplies a large portion of the electronic systems in these cars, as well as producing the diagnostic equipment to support it all (the DoIP interface is made by Bosch).

    JLR has a "no mods" policy on their vehicles, which is why the dealers are prohibited from making these retrofits like we do. So not having a CCF editing function in their diagnostic software would be part of that policy.
