Hi niteshade.
I am from Cyprus and I have also the same issue. Please let me know what they told you from the garage.
Hi Leandros

When I spoke with the garage, they told me that not all newer batches of cars in Cyprus (XC40, XC60 e.t.c..) have this feature yet and Volvo is aware of the issue. I also spoke with a sales guy and he mentioned it will be rolled out slowly. No one gave any timelines as to when this will happen though.

Unfortunately neither sounded particularly sure so it's anyone's guess when if/when we'll get it :?

Also, my app version is 4.4.5, I don't see a newer version in the google play store.

Just a silly suggestion... it's not related to Apple or Android is it, maybe it's working for Apple but not Android :?

I use Android and have been using remote start for over a year no issues.

Thank you all for your input. I guess there's nothing we can do other than wait for volvo /supplier to do something about it.

Has anyone found a definitive answer to this issue yet?

I'm a UK owner of a D3 Auto and can't remember the last time I tried to remote auto start from the app without me getting a text message 10 seconds later saying the alarm is going off. Obviously annoying for the neighbours (and me) in a morning.

I've tried everything in this thread including reducing the interior sensitivity, parking in different places (not near other cars or walls) and anything else I can think of.

The car had its 1 year service last year and a Sensus upgrade was done so I'm confident I have the latest software.

It's just annoying that something so potentially useful (especially in the UK winter) can be so problematic.

Ah, thank you.

I will have to see if I can think of a reason to get it into the dealer for an update then!

Are we talking Apple or Android. I have the latest Android app and it's 4.5.1

It works just fine with my XC40

I would not remote start mine as I always leave the car in gear when parked... starting it remotely would end up demolishing the garage door....
