Mahindra XUV700 Touchscreen Ads
Munish Sharma from the Mahindra XUV700 Owners Group has shared an interesting update about his XUV700. Inside the Connected App settings of the XUV700 touchscreen system, he has found the option of Advertisement. As of now, it is not clear as to what will be offered as ads if the option is enabled.
Interestingly, Munish has found out that there is an option to disable advertisements on the infotainment system. This probably means that Mahindra has built in a functionality to display ads on the infotainment, however thankfully it has also built in a functionality to disable the ads, as per the preference of the owners.
The advertisements or pop-ups could be related to new / upcoming Mahindra products or a reminder to extend the vehicle’s warranty or Road Side Assistance (RSA). It is also possible that Mahindra could add some value added services (like their own music streaming, traffic updates, etc) in the XUV. These could be free or could cost less with ads enabled.
