Getting to know the On Call app (Android). I have a couple of questions:

[edit] Down to one question now, see 2)

1) How far is too far to use vehicle locator? I was surprised by the "to far" message. So much for using when my wife is at the mall and she, the non-techy, wants me to trigger it. Got it: Per the UG, "Note: The vehicle requires you to be within approx. 100m from it to be able to use this function."

2) On the map screen, what is the 'P', inside the box, in the upper right corner for? I tap it, it fills in, then says "No Results Found".

3) How often is the car's location sent? Just now it took over 20 minutes before the map updated. In fact, car was home (from parent's house) before the map did update.

Oh, is there a user manual? OK, found it at <link>. Had the answer for 1). Still don't know the answer to 2).

Thank you in advance, Eric

Also found another answer, for 3), in the above referenced guide:

"The function ("Car Locator function") is based on the vehicle position transmitted by the car one minute after the key has been removed from the key slot or, for key less vehicles, one minute after the key is no longer in contact with the vehicle. "

For some reason I thought it was real-time. It's far less creepy now.

Still have not figured out the P.

Eric
