Sorry, but that's silly.
Why have it even indicate it turns on with a remote start if it doesn't warm the seat before you get in?
The seat is perfectly capable of providing warmth when no one is sitting in it. It just doesn't.
If I get in the car after a remote start, it's cold to sit on until about 30 seconds after I hit the Run button. It remains cold until then, aside from my body warmth. Once I hit that run button, it starts to heat and it's around 30 seconds or so for it to feel warm. Within a couple of minutes, I'm actually really toasty and I actually would prefer the option to automatically have it switch to low.
Likewise, I can turn the passenger seat heater on with no one sitting on it with the engine in Run mode, let it sit for less than a minute and it feels warm if I get in on that side and sit down. Immediately.
Why have seat warmers that force you to sit on a cold seat?
