Hi,

I am a new Jeep Compass owner.

I want to use the Uconnect app to locate my car and start/lock it remotely.
But I don't know what I should do after installing the app.

I installed the app from:

https:// play google com /store/apps/details?id=com.fcagroup.us.uconnect


Then I registered an account from:
www driveuconnect com

I also added my car to my account with the VINN

But when I open the app on my Android phone , there's nothing except an help menu.
It says "there are no active subscriptions"

Is this the wrong app ? And do I need any subscriptions to pair my car with the app ?

thanks.

I wish the Uconnect app worked in Canada, for Canadian vehicles.

For some reason they don't feel that the Canadian Compass warrants that feature.

They also don't feel that the weather app for Sirius satellite or the traffic app works on Canadian cars either.

Notwithstanding that the radio shows the features, you cannot activate them in Canada.

You need to pay a monthly subscription

It's really too bad the Canadian Compass owner's can't do that!

All the advertising sure makes it sound like you can, until you actually buy the vehicle and then try to subscribe. That's when they tell you that, being from Canada, you can't do it.

To me that's misleading advertising!

even for an operation that does not require remote services ?
I would expect to see my car on the app at least. Then some disabled buttons...
But now, there's nothing on the screen.

I have 8.4 inch display with navigation.

What is Sirius XM ? How can I understand if it is available or not ?
SiriusXM is a subscription satellite radio that you need to apply to to receive the signal.

The electronic serial number of your radio should be on Channel 1 when you press the sxm soft key

thanks. I've learned that Sirius XM is not available in my country (Turkey)
so , that means I won't be able to use these features, correct ?
