So is this something we can use with the Wrangler? I know Grand Cherokees and several others can remote start via Uconnect if you sign up and download the app on your phone. I believe there is a free trial period as well.
I feel like this (if available?) and the Jeep Wave free oil changes are something every dealership should mention when buying a new Jeep

I had it on my Ram, I’m not sure about the Wrangler I haven’t gotten mine yet. For the Ram it had a free trial after that it was $2-300 a year I didn’t sign up because I used it like 2-3 times in the year I had it.

Yes it is available in our 392 via UConnect.
 
I used to use it on my 2021 Scat Pack Shaker but after I had the enhanced security update (@2.8 horsepower vs standard valet mode) the engine didn't make enough power to cool the car in the summer. That said, if I park anywhere outside of my garage, I always use the enhanced security option (still under Valet in Custom drive option). Not sure if 392 Jeeps even have Valet option. Have been reading posts here as I am considering getting a 392 Jeep.
 
Yes been using it for a long time
 
I use it.
I start my 392 While I’m still in flight. Woks nice. The only issue is, I have’t seen an indication that it started. but When I arrive, it’s running.

I could sure use the remote start in the winter for 12.99/month. Wonder if I can cancel it the rest of the year
 
Question for you Once the valet is initiated, from the app how fast can the valley actually drive the Jeep? Thank you.
I do not see a valet mode for my Jeep.. Not in the Jeep app, or the UConnect app.

The Valet is included in the latest update of the Jeep app. All it does is send you a message if the Jeep leaves the area you set, such as 1/4 mile from where you turned it on. Does nothing to the operation of the Jeep.

Edit-Well it was there yesterday but gone today! Must be some problems with it!

It should be called U......................................................................connect. Slowest damn remote interface in the automotive world.

They are phasing out the Uconnect app and going to the Jeep app.
 
Anybody renew their UConnect service?
They pushed hard and would take no for an answer. I finally hung up and they called me every day for about 2 weeks.
 
Remote start on Jeep App is sweet.

I start the beast everyday from my office with the app. Fab wont work unless I walk down hall to a window.

No issues with range either. My daughter took it to work 30 miles away. I banged it from the app and it started within 15sec.

Be careful on the horn feature tho, you can’t turn it off for a minute or so after you hit it like you can with remote!

🤘🤙
