Anyone experiencing remote start issues with the updated app? I’m having to press and hold multiple times before it finally sends the command.

Maybe I just posted in the wrong post. My HUGE apologies for making you click on something and wasting your time. *sarcasm

sorry/not sorry
Was hoping you had a valid point in your post but guess not. If it was the wrong thread you posted to you could have used the edit function.

The app redesign is a pain the butt...

Old method - tap the virtual button watch the arrow rotate around it and whether it works or fails it gives you a notification.

New Method - hold the "button" until the the "hold" notification goes away.

Is this feature only for OnStar subscribers? I rarely use the Buick app, but when I do, I don't see this feature.

You guys have lost me.

I remote start my Tour-X with my FOB. (Press lock button then press start button directly below).
BTW. Very seldom use it except to test it every so often.

What am I missing?

As for OnStar, you are completely correct. Rip Off and MOSTLY worthless. I use it ONLY for the Travel Link (Green/Yellow/Red) Traffic Link road markings. OnStar forces me to get it from them, vice getting it from SiriusXM like every other car I’ve had including my present other car, for the past thirteen years

You can load a Buick app to your phone.
One of the features is you can remotely from any DISTANCE, lock, unlock, start, stop, activate horn and lights via OnStar.

And it is a good feature to have on the phone where we can remote start while inside a building instead of just within the remote's signal distance.
However, does it worth $15/month? To me, absolutely not. $5/month, maybe.
Especially when Ford offers it for FREE, FFS!
Pretty sure Ford is not running a charity and figured out a way to monetize the data.
Why can't GM do the same?

If the app isn't working properly go to the, for Android users Google Play Store, and read the reviews regarding current and/or most critical.

To have addtional insight check the other GM apps user's, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC as the "MY" app also affects them also especially on updates. While none of this will fix a issue it's a way to confirm if a user or the "MY" app that's the problem.

No kidding! I recently traded my 2016 GMC Canyon in, and was surprised they wanted to charge $15 per month for the My Buick app. The My GMC app was free from the day i drove the truck off the lot. I ended up telling OnStar no thanks, wasn't spending $15 for that. Kept saying no and got the $15 Connect package PLUS the $24 Safety and Security package, all for $190 per year, all in. I can live with that.

Mine hasn't been "updated" since it left the factory 1992 and I'm perfectly OK with that.
Cool story. Why do you post in here? Don’t you know I’m the troll of the TourX sub forum?

I have found some of the connected services handy, but would only ever pay by the month since I rarely have a need for any of it. The WiFi hotspot will get used for a month long road trip this summer, but that’s it.

I seem to always get an email about promo prices as well. As a buddy of mine says “only suckas pay retail.”
