Granted I just got my 2017 Bolt six days ago and I'm still learning, but the App seems to suck. What I'm looking for is the ability to precondition the car remotely, like as I get out of the shower or at the office which is out of fob range. Cooled in the summer, and defrosted and toasty in the winter. The KeyPass thing only works if I'm standing next to the car and at that point I can use the keyfob to remote start it.
I did push the OnStar button last night and the lady gave me five months of the Guidance package which is supposed to do what I want. From their website it looks like I only need the remote package. She mentioned getting some email within 48 hours so maybe I have to wait for that for it to be enabled? Right now, just 25 feet from the car, the App just shows Not Connected and I can't lock/unlock, precondition, etc., the buttons are just greyed out. All help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
