I would add that the battery must be atleast 50% charged to run Pre-Climate.

With JdeMO, the car can only charge while "on" so you can have AC or heater or NAV or apps or anything at all you want running while charging. With L2, the car must be off so the other techniques mentioned must be used.

One more nice reason to get the L3 option from QCP!

I realize this is an old thread but...

I live in Houston TX. My Entune subscription expired and I am undecided about renewing. $140 a year seems like a lot to remotely manage the charging and climate.

In any case I would like to know if anyone found a way to turn the AC on while charging without the Entune app? I would like to be able to cool the car at times while plugged in.

Thanks,

Todd

I have the same question.

It will require frequent button pushing, but you could schedule it on the center screen in the car. That is the only other way to activate the pre-climate function without SafetyConnect and Entune service working. It will only give you one 15 minute climate session per event.

Sigh. Thanks for that.

Scheduling pre-climate to obtain A/C or heat while L2 charging. In 15 minute increments. Ugh.
