UConnect app - locked while in motion

Today while on the train I figured I will give the app a shot and start my Jeep remotely so It gets nice and cool but the time I get there to Park & Ride location.

Guess what? The app will not work while in motion. It locks out the screen. Is there a way to disable this? Totally useless for me if I cannot start my car while not moving. I could start this before I get on the train but than it is 1/2 hour ride.

Sucks! Wonder if there is a way to disable this.

When finally arrived I used the app anyway and started the car. It worked but ... guess what AC wasn't on and Climate control wasn't on Auto.

2x Sucks!

I hope that is a glitch, otherwise that is idiotic on every level... I get my GC on Monday or Tuesday, so can't see if I can replicate yet...

Re: UConnect app - locked while in motion

I wasn't moving... I was in front of my rental car getting gas around the corner from my car. But either way, why would they do that... do they think we are trying to start our jeeps while we are driving in our jeeps???

Re: UConnect app - locked while in motion

Maybe walking/running also triggers it ... so make sure that you don't move while you use the app!!! I will try disabling "Location" services for that app and see what happens.

Probably they have bigger plans for the app, currently you can remote start, lock and unlock the car. Doesn't make sense why I cannot do that while moving. Overall hate when companies babysit us like that.
