No, the WiFi access point is not included. That costs an additional $10 a DAY! Yes, you read that right. And it's only 3G!The mobile access point in the car.
I wouldn't call that a big thing, really. It doesn't work at all with an iPhone, but you can just use Siri instead. And can't you do the same thing on Andoid with Okay Google or something?But the biggest thing is voice texting. I believe the voice response is phoned home to parse the speakers reponse. Without the uconnect acces it can't phone home.
With the app, you can start the car from anywhere in the world as long as there's cell service wherever the car is.What is the difference of remote starting from the app vs remote starting from the key fob aide from maybe proximity to car?
