Yes, you are right on that, longoriafd. So I have figured out how to remote start. But it takes the climate control out of auto mode and puts it in something-else mode--I can't quite decide what. But if you want it to go back to holding your desired temp automatically, you have to push the Auto button.
It does work, overall, but it seems clumsy compared to the old one.
