    Calling all Canadian X owners. Can any of you summons your X with your key fob?

    I was told that in Canada (unlike in the US) it is not possible to summon from the fob, only from the app on your phone. Not sure if this is entirely accurate but this is what I was told.

    There is some language in the manual, I believe, about 'country specific limitations' or some such. But the app does appear to work everywhere.

    Yeah, the app works for me, but it's very flakey. I usually have to try 2-3 times, but which time I just give up and get in and drive it myself. The FOB would be so much more useful to me.

    I was hoping that there were some Canadians with working fobs, so that I can then go and complain to my SC to fix my fob.

    I was told by Vancouver SC that only the app works in Canada. Sucks. I too find the app little flaky and cumbersome to use.

    Summons without a FOB is a SOB to operate. I guess Canadians are SOL.
