Wasn't sure of the best place to post this so put it here.

With 2016 models you get the 5 years of Mbrace connect free so I thought I'd download the app and play with it. I do not see a remote start button on my app. According to the MB literature the 2016 GLAs have that capability, but I'm not seeing the button on the app to do it. Anybody else play with this yet? I don't know that we'd ever use remote start, but I think it's supposed to work. I did a general google search and couldn't come up with anything.

Well... there's also a disclaimer at the top that says, "Please note: Remote Start roll-out for specific MY16 model lines is subject to change. Confirm availability with your dealer."

Not that I don't want this to be true.. living in Boston.. it would be a great luxury to have this. But when I installed mbrace on my phone I did not see the remote start option either.

This also was a disappointment to me...but mostly from the novelty gadget perspective. The odds of me actually needing that, or even remote lock/unlock, are not great. So for early 2016 model deliveries, this is something we missed out on, as well as Apple CarPlay or Google MirrorLink.

Im the type who likes to warm up the car (engine) before driving off so i would love to have this feature.

Its interesting its listed for GLA and CLA, i dont think mine will have it either (who knows it might)

Also reading the literature, could be lack of the start button on the app? instead on the car? or is the remote start grayed out.

Mercedes better come clean and start adding the equipment that they have promised to have in their vehicles. I purchased a 2016 GLA 250 and expect to have this feature installed as it was a big seller for me. If MB advertises that they are including equipment for a certain model year, it **** well be installed. Otherwise they are going to begin losing customers. I've never had this issue with BMW.
