Is it possible to use the mobile app to remote start the climate control and do other car functions without Bluetooth on? If I don't want to use the phone as a car key, can I use other functions of the app through cellular?

As a rule I don't leave Bluetooth on in my phone in order to save battery life and to prevent the phone from connecting and disconnecting from various Bluetooth devices as I walk around.

Bluetooth is only used for phone key or audio source. Everything else communicates over cellular data/wifi.
