why Discovery Sport doesn't have auto start?

times like the last few days, temp is in the high 90's it would be great if I can auto start my Discovery from my home, and by the time I'm ready to go to the car the car will be cool. Even Chrysler has this option and Land Rover is higher end and should have this option. Also another option, I feel this car is missing, is when I run out of the car to get coffee, I can't just lock the car and go in the store with the engine running. My last car Grand Jeep Cherokee has this feature, hopefully LL will add these feature in the next few years.

couldn't agree with you more. I'm going to be so jealous when the 2016 models came out because they will have this feature.

This has now come to pass. (I haven't had a need to use it yet....or ever.)

I see that option screen in my Remote app tour but we don't actually have it in our app. I feel like I've dropped the ball here...How did you get it?

We'd love to have remote start on the Disco. I've had it on my past 3 RAM trucks, we've had it on some other past vehicles and we've been disappointed the DS doesn't have it.

What's the story??

Disco Disco!!
Good Good!!

For me, I've always had it since the day I downloaded it; didn't have to do anything special to unlock this feature. If you don't have this feature you may have to uninstall then reinstall? Keep in mind you may lose all data/settings!

What year is your disco? And do you recall paying any special subscription fee?

I had it too. My dealer needed to enroll me in the subscription. I gave them my email and we set it up before I drove off the lot. My Disco is a 2016 purchased December 2015.

The subscription is free for the first part of the warranty (4 years). Then I believe there is a fee.

Yes ^^^ this.....

I love my app - finding the car by honking it's horn and lights flashing when you park somewhere in the sticks is nice!
