In particular, do CAN vehicles have Lincoln Remote Start? Have not been able to find the App in Can. Apple Store.

Probably other MySync/Touch related features missing too? What else?

All manufacturers are guilty of short-changing us so not exclusive to Ford/Lincoln, just wondering what we do loose. I'm asking here because in most cases these "features" don't get activated until sold so I'm hoping for some feedback from Canadian owners as they receive their vehicles.

Not quite ready to go to the dealer yet, trying to do as much due diligence beforehand as I suspect I might overlook things just because I want one once I drive it :)

Seriously Looking...

Found it today so I assume that we'll at least have Lincoln Remote Access.
I will have my vehicle this week and will know more soon, but for now:
Not a Ford/ Lincoln issue, but it burns my behind that Sirius traffic and travel is offered 6 years free ( see MKC brochure), but we don't have it.
IN Canada we pay annually $179 vs $199 USD in the United States; we get fewer stations and no Travel and Travel link.
SIRIUS SUCKS!

Not a Ford/ Lincoln issue,
I actually do consider it a Ford/Lincoln issue. Shows that Lincoln Canada doesn't care about negotiating a similar deal.

Oh well, I wouldn't pay for SiriusXM anyways, but perhaps after using it for an extended time I'd find I can't live without :) Guess I'll never find out.

I do hope FM reception (range) in the MKC is decent. It was good in my '11 MKZ and is lousy in my '13 SantaFe. It's the little things that make the difference.

Sirius not serious about Canada

Sorry if I was unclear.
The Sirius Travel and Trip Service is not available for Any Automobile Manufacturer in Canada.

Maybe with a US address or credit card, one could get a Sirius US subscription and receive the extra stations and service? ( probably wrong place to post this)

My Lincoln Mobile App Features

The app does take 24 hours to link up to your vehicle. I have a 2015 Canadian MKC 2.3L Reserve

The app allows you to:
- See the location of the app on a google maps interface ( it is very accurate)
- Lock the doors
- Unlock the doors
- Start the vehicle
- Schedule vehicle starts
- See the mileage
- See how much gas is in the vehicle.

I tested this on the Cellular network and the WIFI network and it works. It is not the fastest but it does work. One note is that when you first launch the app it will tell you the status but you have to check the date and time of the last status as it does not update the status until you click the update status button OR it does it on some random schedule.

coming from a wide range of vehicles from low tech to high tech, i have to say that these are some awesome features to have, it makes the whole experience that much better.

Have you had the TSB done to fix the Sirius drop outs? I did not really have a problem, but had it done since it was free and I may travel to a place where I do have that problem.

Got a small list of "Needs attention" to give my dealer when I go in for an oil change this coming week....it's an hour drive there and back and so I want to combine a general "repair these items please " list for them.....
Ironically, The Sirius in my Mustang never had a single hickup since new....that was since 2011 now we are in 2016 and the system just sucks in the MKC as far as Sirius is concerned....
Sign of the times:
1 day after I took possession of my MKC I get a call from Sirius, first off going on congrats on the new purchase and so forth...then she switches gears and says to me, well sir we have a promotional deal.....I stopped her right there, 'scuse me miss, but it's a little too early to be talking to me about any promotional ANYTHING....I have 6 months to field test the system before I commit to a subscription.....like REALLY!!!!!

You may want to warn the service folks up front on the Sirius fix. It is a long one. There is quite a parts list, then after getting the parts, they have to paint the antenna to match to your car. From what I was told by the service tech, the installation itself is a nightmare. You may want to ask if tey have done one yet and then be prepared if you are the first! I suspect that is why they waited so long to come up with the fix. It weeded out the people who had no intention of renewing their Sirius. The ones who had it done are the people who actually use Sirius.

I had a similar issue on a 2007 Jeep Wrangler. It was one of the first Jeep models with the fancy "Infotainment" system. I had Sirius/XM issues from the day I took possession. Spent 3 months dicking around with the Jeep service folks. After literally replacing everything from the whole "Infotainment" system to the antenna to everything in between - it ended up being a cable that was routed poorly and pinched which interrupted the signal.

The Sirius folks can be aggressive, but it is their job so I don't sweat it. Any renewal will be tacked on the end of the "free" 6 months, so you don't lose anything.

What I find bewildering is all other media come in just fine....FM all the stations I have programmed have zero issues, and I have quite a selection, sometimes I listen to talk radio on AM (and we all know how crappy that is) also comes in fine...WHY sirius does what it does is beyond me and NO I am not about to have them tear the headliner off to replace an antenna on top of having to have to paint it...I can live without Sirius, most times I listen to my own recorded music anyways, so it's no loss to me.
Ken, I can appreciate Sirius trying to create a sale...I also find it very inconsiderate to try and nail a sale within the first couple of days of someone's new ownership experience ...In my books, that is counter productive...and I never liked high pressure sales tactics, ever!
