Land Rover Remote App
I don’t have the ‘remote’ option at the bottom of the home screen in my app, consequently I don’t have the ability to lock the car if I’ve forgotten to. I had this ability with the old app and my Disco and I’ve seen the app on other peoples’ phones and do they have the ‘remote’ tab, though they aren’t Defender owners.
Is this not a feature of the Defender?!
The phone software is up to date and I’ve tried deleting and reinstalling the app but it’s made no difference. The car software is also up to date.
The app also takes forever

to talk to the car - is this common or could it be connected?

I have a 23MY Defender and it has the 'remote' button, so it is definitely possible. Perhaps your car is of a specification which doesn't have this option?

Possibly. It’s a 22MY p400e so I’d expect it should but who knows 🤷🏼‍♀️

How would I check that? There isn’t anything listed under subscriptions if that helps?

Think the only way is to query it with the dealer. Unless you log on to your account via the website and it should show an expiry date for online data pack.

Edit - it could be that your dealer hasn’t properly set your Incontrol account. 21MY Defender 90 D200 S, Tasman Blue, Fuji White roof.

I’ve been getting account expiry warnings for my car over the last two months warning of expiry in June - suddenly those messages have disappeared so I assume the system has suddenly remembered that I paid for 3 years subs and we are only two years in! Epsom Green Tdi300 County

I suggested this and was told I hadn’t completed the set up so I went into to the webpage but it wasn’t allowing me to do anything more with the account so I’m not convinced it was my fault. Long story short the dealer ‘unlinked’ me from the vehicle and then added me again. It took a couple of tries but we got there in the end. Thank you for your advice.
