InControl Apps, etc.

Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere before, but recently purchased a 2016 DS HSE, and I am a bit confused over the InControl suite of stuff. I know about the two buttons on the ceiling for breakdown or crashes (which have been set up), but what about the Apps (via smart phone Stitcher, parking finder, hotel finder, etc.) and the Remote (where you can monitor/start the car, unlock the car, etc. via smart phone).


I wasn't sure whether those connections are options that had to be added, or can be connected with any car via smart phone or what (salesman wasn't very helpful). Also, are there usage fees associated with the Apps or Remote? Doesn't seem very clear to me. Thanks

It's my understanding that you have to have the option which includes InControl Apps to use it. I really don't think it's a big deal since I have an Iphone 6S and just use the Apps on it. The Remote start App is the only one that would be sorta cool.

I just got a 2016 DS HSE and the deal is telling my that InControl is only on the 2017 +... I'm so confused. I know mine doesn't have the apps but I should at least have the remote, correct?

Yes, I have a 2015 and have it. As I understand it is free to use with a couple of basic apps. The parking finder etc I think is with the premium version which has a subscription.

I have a 2016 and the InControl Remote works with it as well. I am curious if anyone has the Route Planner app working - I have tried unsuccessfully to get it connected multiple times.

I'm pretty sure this is one thing that our 2016's don't get and is only with the next-version of InControl.
