I concur!
That explains it... I guess I have to google @Verdier 's secret codes to see what hidden emoji he left.
I was being a touring snob. You know. "Mine's bigger than yours". It was suppose to be me sticking my tongue out at you since I'm obviously better than you and get all the cool app features. 😉

I just noticed on iOS, Honda pushed out a new update today, the app also got a redesign. Maybe they did the same for Android and fixed some bugs, too.

I was confused earlier because on my desktop it displays a bunch of random letters & numbers(
Code:
🤪
) but on my iPhone I can see the emoji.

Just downloaded it. It's nice!
  • More native iOS GUI elements
  • Good in-app explanations of the various paid subscriptions. Looks like you can purchase the subscription from within the app now, although still with the same unfortunately vague iconography during checkout.
  • Data on your car like range, lock state, odometer, and oil life is upfront, without having to scroll down.
  • Connections to my iOS calendar... looks like it wants me to have an upcoming event with a location. Maybe this sends location to the Color Audio Display, for the Garmin-based maps?
  • Looks like remote engine start, door lock/unlock, and locate are now hidden behind a tab. I don't mind this since the tap/swipe target is displayed immediately. And it looks like they've added an informative progress bar, which helps since those functions still appear to work slowly.
  • Too bad they didn't change the hideous main icon.

Say, how concerned should we be about data privacy, Honda AND 3rd party tracking, come-ons, etc.?

The Connected Services blurbs certainly describe a HUGE amount of data being gathered and provided to others!

Considering Google app is listening to you all the time, I've just decided to live with the fact I have a tracker on my hip and that at any second a saucer will come down and give me an anal probe. 😏

You don't really have a choice if you want to use the services they provide. I'm hoping whatever data Honda gathers from my car is use to provide improvements and bug fixes.

Anyone else noticed that fuel amount and range doesn't update in the new hondalink app? Or is it just me? I sent a bug report in so I'll let you guys know what's up. Either way the update is a significant improvement.

Mine hasn't updated since November, but at least I know where I parked. I've pretty much given up on the Hondalink app at this point.

The fuel amount and range on mine are up to date. I do notice that the picture of the car in the middle of the screen says "Last Updated at 11:21 AM", which is troubling, since I turned off the car around 9 PM today.

If I haven't mentioned it already, I like the more informative progress bar for locking the car. Face ID also can be used in place of entering the PIN, which saves me a step when doing any of the remote actions.
