As i learned from my Dealer: The temperature setting is only available if the remote motorstart is available. This is not available in all countries ... so you seem living in a country like I am where this Feature is not available!
I got no answer to this question:"If I cross the boarder to a country where this feature is allowed, will my german RR provide me this feature?".
In all relevant documents like broschure and pricelist there is no hint about availibility of countries. Only in the app there apeared a hint which said: "Remote start might not be legal in any country. Driver is responsible to fulfill the local laws and regulation"
I am really disapointed. This was one of my favorite function for MY 2018.
There are disclaimers on the various LR sites and pages that options are market dependent or vary by region. There is also a disclaimer to see your local retailer for details when ordering.
Basic physics play a huge part in remote climate. A/C does not operate unless the engine is running. Heaters have to heat source unless the coolant is warm from a running engine. If you don't have remote start installed you would simply be blowing ambient air in your parked car.
This is a Germen spec car (SV Autobiography dynamic) and i live in the UAE, everthing just work fine, even when i start the climate it does start but the only problem is the car wont start and i cannot control the temperature + the ac will blow normal temperature air.
