As above when I select stationary air conditioning it does not start and informs me the car needs to be plugged in for this function to work. My car is at 56% state of charge so there is enough power in the traction battery. I am also on the latest 2.1.

I remember in the app for my Golf GTE there was an option to allow the car to cool heat without it being plugged in but I cannot see that option for the ID.3 anywhere. Anyone else experience issues pre heating/cooling without being plugged in?

Yes I've got that problem, was hoping 2.1 would fix it. Also mine won't do it via the app unless it's plugged in.

The work around is to put in the seatbelt and then put on the Aircon, it stays on after you get out (for 30min) as it thinks there is someone in the seat it's not great but better than nothing.

I haven't tried the stationary air con / heater properly before, but decided to try yesterday before leaving work as I knew the car would be warm and turned it on manually via the app. The car wasn't plugged in and it did work.

Only issue was it set to AUTO and was blasting ice cold air at the fastest speed possible and the lag of the air con menu becoming available meant I couldn't turn it off or down for a bit!

If you mean with stationairy airconditioning the feature that can preheat or precool the cabin than I have no big problems with the ID.3 business update 0792. I live in the Netherlands.

I can activate this function through the infotainment screen when seated. Also with we connect id app or by just unlocking the car remotly with the carkey (slider setting needs to be activated in the option menu). I get no error that it needs to be plugged in.

Perfect when buckling up the kids when its warm outside.

The only thing that is bothering me is that when I activate it throught the app it is getting reactivated when leaving the car after a short trip. Sometimes without notice.

Have only used it in short trips and cooling so for.

I had lots of the problems mentioned above, never worked, even after the 2.1 update. I logged a support case with VW via the app who did not say they had fixed anything..... They stated there was a general issue affecting everyone, but it magically started working, plugged in or not and via the app or car. Worth a try doing the same...
