UConnect App and Internet question

I'm sure this has been documented previously, but I have a 2015 Overland and when I goto either the app or through internet to lock, unlock, start vehicle, etc. it says "Function not available....try again later". I'm guessing because it is currently closed up in the garage and cannot get a signal? My understanding after speaking with Uconnect is it uses the 3g antenna. Haven't tried to remove the vehicle from the garage yet (because I'm not home) but does this sound familiar to anybody? Is it possibly because the vehicle is closed up and not emitting a signal or is this a common occurance even in open sky?

I can't give you a definitive answer, but I let my GC sit in the garage for about three weeks and the website told me I didn't have the UConnect services, even though I had paid for it. After driving it for a bit, it all came back.

Re: UConnect App and Internet question

I believe if the vehicle is not used for 3 days or more it does not allow you to use remote start. May be the same way for Uconnect features.

It's the 3g signal. Was told by support that it simply won't work if car is indoors.

Re: UConnect App and Internet question

i got it fixed, turned out login info on app was incorrect, and now i see remote lock/unlock/start etc. i tried pandora briefly, worked fine. tried remote unlock - took about 5 minutes which is ludicrously slow, but at least it works in an emergency (and you have cell coverage!).
