Ratings and Reviews
Timed charging issue
App is reasonably ok - however one of the intrinsically key features simply does not work with timed / preferred charging periods - pretty basic stuff if you have an EV. I have sent a note to Jag app support but disappointing had no reply. The charging will start at the time you set but will not switch of at your chosen end time, so all a bit pointless if you have selected cheaper of peak energy. Jaguar wants the car to always charge to 100% - however they need to treat their customers as adults and allow the consumer to decide how much power to put in - after all it’s our money and Not helping with carbon foot print.
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.
I use it all the time.
A lot of these reviews seem harsh. The most useful feature is being able to start your car and therefore heating or cooling before your journey. Mine works really well. If yours doesn’t then go to your dealership. Don’t whine on here.
The other feature is the journey tracking which displays as a line on a map which you can pinch to zoom. There is various statistical information on you trip which is interesting. Great for company purposes. Or I just like seeing where I have been in conjunction with the journey information. It is accurate and even notices if I have backed up by a few yards to allow someone to pass.
