For out­door lovers and fans of Land Rover, there is a new gad­get that el­e­vates the sta­tus of the mere fan to one who lives by his word. The new Land Rover Ex­plore mo­bile phone is tough and ca­pa­ble, like the Dis­cov­ery SUV that in­spired it, and pow­er­ful enough to last two full days of nor­mal us­age with­out need­ing a recharge.

De­vel­oped by Land Rover and Bul­litt Group and re­vealed at the Mo­bile World Congress in Barcelona, the Ex­plore smart­phone is pow­ered by a 4,000mah bat­tery that can with­stand a day out hik­ing, bik­ing or ski­ing with screen on con­stantly and GPS nav­i­ga­tion map­ping ac­ti­vated on its five-inch HD dis­play.

Bat­tery life can be dou­bled by us­ing an Ad­ven­ture Pack that also boosts the re­li­a­bil­ity and ac­cu­racy of the GPS sig­nal and im­proves the map­ping.

Drop-tested to 1.8 me­tres with a fac­tory-fit­ted screen pro­tec­tor, it can sur­vive underwater, in­clud­ing salt wa­ter, and can cope with ex­treme tem­per­a­tures, hu­mid­ity, ther­mal shock and vi­bra­tion ex­po­sure.

This level of pro­tec­tion en­sures the de­vice can sur­vive heavy down­pours or muddy trails and will con­tinue to work ef­fec­tively.

The An­droid-pow­ered phone’s home screen has a cus­tomis­able out­door dash­board for in­stant ac­cess to weather in­for­ma­tion and data from the de­vice’s sen­sors. The full HD screen works in bright sun­light and can be con­trolled with gloves or wet fin­gers. It is also fully com­pat­i­ble with all Land Rover in-car apps.

Other hard­ware packs are avail­able for the Land Rover Ex­plore, in­clud­ing a large 4,370mah ad­di­tional bat­tery and a uni­ver­sal bike mount.
