Just been out and checked mine and my comment above is blown out of the water as it updated itself without any request to install the update by locking the car etc. Now it updated to OS 2.0.5 P2AR1 on 20th Nov but................
this May account for why the last two mornings I haven’t been able to remote start the car and why the app is showing that the car is locked but the alarm isn’t set even though it’s double locked........


Same - I just got the 2.0.5 update - remote start stopped working since - no notification of the update either. Though, I suspect when my screen randomly goes dark, the update is happening.

On the battery reset - do you loose all settings when doing this?

My 2.0.5 update didn't really fix anything that was annoying (to me) before. The weather, Spotify, TuneIn apps come and go as they please (well, they go as they please. To get them to come back you need to do a Pivi Pro reset.) Android Auto will connect maybe 3 out of 4 times. Speed limit signs pop up as European instead of American layouts every now and then - again, a reset usually fixes it. My auto high beams still mysteriously disable themselves in the "Vehicle" options.

Just about the only fixes that appear to have stuck so far are all connectivity options staying on (before I would often find Hotspot and/or Wi-Fi switched off, even though I had turned them on), and you don't seem to lose all the Sat radio presets every time you reset Pivi Pro. 2.0.6 can't come soon enough. 2020 NAS Defender HSE 5-seater / Silver / Khaki / Black Pack / Black Roof / Satin Film / Cold Pack / Off-Road Pack / Advanced OR Pack / Comfort + Convenience Pack / Sirius + HD radio / HUD / Meridian Surround

I contacted LRCS asking them to forward my issue to the folks doing the OTA updates and LRCS asked to to send a report to an email address that Amelia at LRCS sent me. That was this afternoon.
At 4pm I tried to remote start the car but there was no change, app couldn’t connect to the car. Drove 15 miles to the local Sainsbury, shopped and came home. After unpacking and stowing the shopping I thought I’d have a look at the app and lo, the car was showing locked AND alarmed instead of just locked, alarm not set. So then I thought I would try the remote start from the app and that timed out “unable to connect to the car” but when I went to the car it’s engine had started. So it looks like JLRCRCSM has been working on the issue this afternoon. I checked the software version and that and the installation date are still the same. Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Tim, there are loads of variables For the app to work & connect properly
Mobile device used
Software version
Vehicle position & signal strength
Time of day
Position of moon

Tell me! Newbridge and I together couldn’t get the 2nd app that was supposed to work to recognise my account that had been set up. I still had the app for my previous RRS which wasn’t supposed to work........ lots of to’ing and fro’ing with various departments in Warwick/Gaydon and the instruction was to delete both apps from my phone then re-install the earlier version......... it worked after that until this weekend and now it’s working again after a fashion. Just means I have to stick my head out of the front door to check that the engine has started remotely now I guess. Otherwise the car is running well and I really enjoy driving it, even though I’m only supposed to make essential trips that don’t go outside Stirling Council area or Forth Valley Health Trust area, that means I can travel some huge distances on an essential shopping trip...... Epsom Green Tdi300 County Hard Top converted into a Station Wagon

Can I remote start the half a dozen nearest vehicles if I download the app and press all the buttons at once? 😂

My remote stopped after the 2.0.5 update - then starting working again, after I opened the sunshade - - conicence - or is it? Shocked
