Send 'n Go & Vehicle Finder

Not sure if this has been posted or not yet so I'll apologize in advance in the event that it has.

So I was looking at some settings last night in UConnect and noticed there was a Send 'n Go app available. I'd heard this was rumored to be coming and have been awaiting the feature to arrive. I looked at the UConnect Access app but didn't see it available. Logged out, then back in again and found it to be there. Now you can find a location through the app on your mobile device (iOS or Android) and send the location to your UConnect. Finally, something to make the app more worthwhile.

Unfortunately, it is only available on 15's and soon the 16's.

Re: Send 'n Go & Vehicle Finder

Thank you! I just found it b/c of you! Wonder when it was deployed?
I thought we were to get some sort of an email saying it was ready for use. Oh well.

It seems pretty cool to use!
There maybe some bugs in the system tho...the whole night it has the jeep a few miles away from me (@ a bar, lol). I have been to a couple places tonight, but not where it says the jeep has been all evening...

Re: Send 'n Go & Vehicle Finder

Glad you guys are finding the info useful

With vehicle finder, I noticed that it seemed to be a little off as well. I spent time at a family member's home and after driving home when I found it, the vehicle was still showing as at the family member's home. I'm guessing the vehicle pings the location and just hadn't updated yet but I'm not sure of the frequency. The send n go feature is of greater significance to me, I can see myself using that often.

Assuming you all are using IOS? Android app does not support this yet.

The send and go works great and it is VERY quick for the car to receive the signal.

I agree with you on ping. I noticed it again this afternoon. Sometimes it updates immediately. Other times not.

Re: Send 'n Go & Vehicle Finder

Are you guys finding the send and go option right on your Uconnect app? Mine's not showing the option on my app

I'm running an Android and it is support.

I just tried it and it works fine. I can see this being VERY useful from time to time.

Re: Send 'n Go & Vehicle Finder

Logged back into app today and said updating and bingo location send is now there. Glad it made its way to Uconnect. I used this daily with my BMW and saved a lot of time trying to input stuff once in vehicle.

Re: Send 'n Go & Vehicle Finder

Yes, it will be right in the app nestled between Remote and Via Mobile on the bottom if you are using iOS. I mentioned this earlier and perhaps I wasn't clear enough. I needed to log out of the app on my device first, then log back in before the Location tab appeared even after the app had been updated.

It's good to see others are enjoying this feature as well.
