Functionality is vastly improved. But there is no climate option still. The pictures are not for this version.

Great idea, poorly executed No activated services over and over. Only a subset of advertised services are available to select: climate and control. Only one of them will show at a time. They intermittently randomly switch. Control only has headlight flashing. Not a network issue since I'm on wifi. I've tried all combinations of logon, caps or not (both lowercase and caps seem to work which has an interesting security implication). All in all its fairly useless in its current state.

FINALLY! ! After almost a year, Android users now have ability to "communicate" with car, sending several very useful commands to car, like turn on fan, honk horn, lock/unlock, flash lights, & send locations -- albeit a little slow. Hopefully, next steps will allow remote activation of heater and air-conditioner. Works fine!

Wait n see Found that letters in login name and password must be in all CAPS. Those having issues logging in should try that. I will have to evaluate app once my car is out of the shop...rear ended. I do know it will not show cars position on map if its more than 0.6 miles away. That is unfortunate.
