Land Rover Tips Driving Water

TIPS FOR DRIVING THROUGH WATER

First, try to work out how deep the water is. In static shallower water, explore on foot and use a stick to gauge the depth – or watch another vehicle go through. It’s a good idea to keep a pair of wellies or waders in the boot.

If there are other vehicles ahead, wait until they’ve left the water. Unsettled water can make a safe passage more challenging. Drive through the water very slowly at first, then build up momentum. And don’t slip/ride the clutch as this reduces control of the vehicle. Ease off the accelerator as you reach the other side.

LAND ROVER WADE SENSING

When driving through deep water, selecting the Wade Aid feature raises your suspension height to allow the maximum wading depth to be achieved.

To calculate the depth of water adjacent to the vehicle, select the Wade Sensing option from your 4x4 infotainment screen. The touchscreen displays the results along with the maximum wading depth.

The touchscreen and instrument panel display warning messages as the vehicle approaches its maximum wading depth. Warning tones accompany the warning messages. If the wade sensing feature limitations are exceeded, the touchscreen image turns grey and the water level no longer displays.
