C'Mon Land Rover, you can do better.

Driving the LR3 and the Latitude Camper on a family vaca from PA to Yellowstone. On our way on the Beartooth Highway, watching the nav screen altitude climb, and realised it stopped at 9990 feet ( the pass is close to 11k). How hard would it have been to anticipate that a Rover would be driven higher than 9990? Maybe the software engineer is a direct descendant of the Smiths engineer who couldn't make a mechanical odometer go past 99,999 miles.....

You're driving to Yellowstone??!! That's more shocking than the 9990 thing! Sounds like an awesome roadtrip through.

Not sure what your other plans are in Wyoming but if you get time give my friends a call at Sleeping Indian OutfittersÂ* - Sleeping Indian Outfitters Home and book a horse ride one morning, there is also a hot springs near by. They are good people.

Jump on route 80 and you will be right there. I made the drive last year from NJ to Yellowstone

Good on you! Yellowstone is awesome, but be sure to go into Teton too! Its awesome-er! The town of West Yellowstone is cool too. We usually camp in the RV park there and walk into town (the GF likes amenities). There is also Quake Lake up there that was created by a earthquake. Unfortunately many people died that night. Kind of eerie there. Interesting to learn about it though. Then there is a brewery in Big Sky...if you are into that sort of thing.

Should we call this "Y-only 10k?"

There is an app for that....

Not too surprising really. We were asked to help organize a trip to the Himalayas back in '07, and the client was trying to decide between new 300 Tdi or new Puma 110's. When talking to the engineers at LR, they could not tell us what to expect above 10k elevation with the ECU in the Puma...

Enjoy the trip, and encourage visiting Glacier NP as well if you have the time.

Our trip from PA to Yellowstone included the Badlands, Black Hills, Rushmore, Bighorn, and then Yellowstone. Some friends came up from Park City and now we're headed home. Currently in Billings and headed east. Have been to the Tetons and Glacier before and can't wait to go back! Rover hasn't been flawless, but still very capable!

I thought when the lr3 navi was introduced it was able to follow and navigate and airplane, I'm sure that plane went over 10k feet in altitude...you may need an update, could be a glitch. or just a land rover thang we would not understand.
