Smartphone app needs to self-update climate control status

Wed Mar 13, 2013 11:54 am

One of the things that's pretty much always bugged me about the iPhone/iPad app is that when one turns the climate control on using the app, but then disconnects the J1772 while it's still running (forcing a climate control auto-off situation) rather than turning it off from within the app, the app still shows climate control as being on until you physically send a "turn climate control off" request. In my opinion it would be cleaner for the app to recognize by itself (via a self-update perhaps?) that the climate control is no longer running in the vehicle.

Now this is when you stay logged into the app. I haven't run the same scenario and then tried logging out of the app to see if that makes a difference. I have my doubts that it would, but like I said...not tried it yet.

Had to CC Auto Off again this morning, and it turns out that logging out of the app and logging back in again does change the screen to show that climate control is off. So that's good! :D

Updating the status in the app also sets/resets the climate on/off control.
