What's New in Version 6.1.1506
Driving Journal OFF fix and several additional minor fixes.
Needs deeper iOS integration
Make this a HomeKit device so it can have Siri integration: "Siri, lock my car door." "Okay, it's locked." I shouldn't have to find the app in the folder, open the app, login to the account, press the lock button manually, and then wait for it to lock before getting a confirmation.
Speaking of logging into the app, if you're going to force us to login each time, at least make use of Apple's Touch ID. What is the point anyway of forcing someone to login every time on a phone that is already secure with a passcode and Touch ID?
Also, the icon is ugly. Make it solid black with a large white or silver Mercedes logo. That gray color is just dull and dated, and the car and communication symbol aren't as necessary when it's such a niche app anyway.
Yesterday's release said remote start function in the release notes. That information has been pulled out and is no longer listed. Someone jumped the gun on listing that info. Nice to know its coming. Originally it said 'remote start with climate preconditioning'. It's about time. My 10 yr old Tahoe has this functionality!
App does basic key functions
I liked the app as it does all the basic remote functions and very convenient to send address to vehicle. The latest update says remote start but I don't see any option in the app. Digging more to see if I'm missing anything
