Velar unlock Shortcut

Post by marcocarnevali » Wed Oct 09, 2019 7:54 am

Hello guys, I created a shortcut for the iPhone that can open your car. The beautiful thing is that you can add Siri to the shortcut so you can say: Ehi Siri unlock my velar, and it will unlock the car!!! It’s so cool trust me. So I thought about sharing it with you:

What you have to do is open the shortcut and fill your car information, the VIN, username, password and app pin is needed, but don’t worry those details are not shared with anyone beside Range Rover, the shortcut is saved on your device and you can even see on the shortcut detail that only Range Rover APIs are used. Let me know what do you think, and if it works for you!

Thanks but how about you remove the ad page and just post a link directly to the shortcut download?

Interesting! I didn’t realise Range Rover had public APIs for this
I might try to create a remote climate shortcut
Thanks

Anyone tried this?
Does it work?
Is it safe?

I also was alerted to this being malware and my iPhone blocked this.

Won’t trust this!

I had a dig around, Anyone thats worried about safety should take a look here

He is using JLR APIs, the same as what the Official App uses, so nothing dodgy is going on
You can even look at the syntax of the iOS shortcut he created and create your own shortcuts for other car functions to be controlled with Siri

Ok, happy to give Marco the benefit of the doubt. But so far my iPhone registers is as malware and subsequently blocks it.

Well you need to flip the setting on your iPhone to allow unauthorised 3rd party shortcuts
It’s off by default
