Ratings and Reviews
Good Idea, Quite Buggy
I think this app is a really good idea, able to preheat your car and check the security status etc, my only issue is that it is quite Buggy, the app itself seems to crash quite a lot and when I’m doing things like preheat my car it will start the engine then the app will think the car is being driven and lock down, not allowing me to stop the climate or unlock the car, so I have to physically go to the car and shut down the engine etc, I also get the issue of the app failing to communicate with the car, for example if I unlock the car it does in fact unlock but then the app says it has failed and still shows the car as locked. These issues need fixing really. I’m using a iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 2016 XE
Lacking in real usable features
Considering the cost of the subscription to use the features provided by this app, that app is pretty much useless.
Firstly: no watch support - makes simple features like remote unlock unrealistic
remote unlocking - why have this feature when it requires so many steps to use? Unlock phone - open app - navigate to unlock - scan face (enter pin) - swipe to unlock. This would be much better on a custom watch face or widget.
Car information - again pointless to have in the app without any logic. Push notifications when issues detected or machine learning to alert you of issues before a long drive would make this better
Climate control - again, something that would be better with automation (ask to start 15 mins before you leave if the weather is cold). Having to remember while getting ready to go out makes this a tedious task.
Journey history - nice information but no usable real world use. Use this info to enhance the other features, such as automated climate control
Some other features that would make this useful:
- security alerts - if you leave your car but leave a window open or unlocked, send a notification to let you know
- custom watch face to quickly access controls (without requiring a pin like the old app does)
On the positive, the design looks nice, that's about it.
As per many of the other reviews I have had intermittent issues with this app. It keeps telling me I have under inflated tyres even though the car says they’re fine and I’ve pumped them up to fully laden pressure. I think I preferred the look of the older app and it would display coolant level checks etc which this newer app doesn’t seem to do. Considering this is a paid for app (for cars over 3 years old ) from an expensive premium brand like Jaguar you would expect it to be better. It takes the gloss off owning what is otherwise a great car (67 plate F-Pace).
