Ain't electronics grand?
I bought a new 2021 Ford this past January. Although it did not come with the remote start feature that you can get by pushing a button on a key fob, I can run an app on my phone called FordPass that will allow me to remotely start it. From 1000 miles away if I want.

I was okay with that, but sometimes I let some air out of the tires if I'm going to drive in sand or something and the car notifies Ford about that too and the app complains to me about it. So I disabled the feature because I don't want the car ratting me out. And I don't want it automatically updating some software on its own either. I might re-enable it next winter when we start getting 10 degree mornings and I want the defroster on before going out in the cold, but not during normal weather.

Since it's a Base model, it doesn't have many of the advanced features like a navigation system. I have to hook up my old Garmin to do that.
