Just had an insurance repair on our Evoque. It was promised for yesterday but it still hasn't been returned. What's the chances that some shifty spanner-jockey is using it for the weekend?
I'm going in there in the morning to ask to inspect it.

Stuart, have you got the Land Rover "Remte" app active for your Evoque. If you have you can use the app to locate it.

I thought the fitter had got it to the end of the month. Who would be worried about the punter who paid for it?

Not the garage or the fitter!

Thanks wire wheel. I phoned the dealer who told me I'd registered for 'remote' when I bought the car. So I downloaded the app and I can report that the car is parked in the repair shop. I can also report that it is unlocked, and the bonnet is up!
Using this thing I could adjust the seating, check on my driving style over the last few journeys, lower the Windows, adjust the aircon, find out who I've phoned, check my golf handicap, etc etc.
Why can't I do that on the Morgan? ( good job I can't, I don't want herself finding out about my visits to the snooker hall.)

Add an ODB2 Bluetooth dongle & you get with the torque app how the car is running & where you have been.
