Hi all

Working through my new car and have setup UVO and really pleased with the timed heating.

As part of this climate control and heated steering wheel, can the heated seats be remotely controlled?

Thanks

James

Thank you 馃槉
Welcome. It鈥檚 a shame that you can鈥檛 do this. It would be a desirable feature to have when it鈥檚 super cold. Especially so with these fake leather seats. I don鈥檛 know why it was omitted. To have it on the wheel but not the seats seems very illogical.

I would have liked it too, but I would hazard a guess, that there would be substantial burn in the faux leather, after 15min of seat heating without a butt in the seat. :confused:

The Leaf would turn the steering wheel heater on and the seat heater if you had left it in the on position.

If you leave it on does it not come on until you start the car? They should all have a thermostat and cut out if they get too hot anyway. Plus the airbag sensors know when there's a butt in the seat so they could be set to come on a lower setting to allow for lack of butt absorption...

Agreed, seems weird to have the steering wheel warm but not your backside!
