Remote Start

Post by Superfly » Tue Jan 15, 2019 10:59 am

So this is something I am interested in, and when I asked my LR dealer if I need to add it to the build to be accessed via the app on delivery, they said it is now a chargeable item at £1000? Not sure if this is just a MY19.5 thing. Can anyone confirm? Please 😊

Possibly on the basic model? it's standard on everything else

I think they are getting confused with the timed pre heating.

The remote start is standard.

EDIT - beat me to it :lol:

I was gutted when I thought my BMW was going to be prewarmed for me in the cold early mornings with an amazing timed climate option in the connected drive app. One of the many BMW disappointments!
My amazing Velar has this feature and I don't even need it as I never drive my own car to work.

Fingers crossed. I have the R Dynamic SE on order so fingers crossed! @markah, I had that in my X5 and LOVED it!

Do you know what needs to be added when ordering the car to get it?
Is it simply called 'remote start'?

While I like the remote start option on the app because we can start our Velars from anywhere, I was hoping we also had a button on the key fob to remotely start the vehicle. I miss that on my previous vehicle.

Yes, I can go into the app and start it but I’m lazy and at times would like to not spend the extra 20 - 30 seconds to open app, click start, enter super secret code, and wait. :)
