Directions to your vehicle - in the Vertical?

I probably know the answer to this already, and meant to check it out on my recent trip to NYC. I parked on garage level 2, but was dumped off at level 4. Does the Jaguar Remote Directions to your vehicle allow for elevation differences? I was going to give it a try, but forgot, just wanted to get home....

GPS horizontal accuracy is somewhere at 3 meters or less, vertical probably at least twice that (6 to 9 meters), all depending on how many satellites the receiver picks up on. I think iPhones have a limited bandwidth, so maybe less accurate as it is not collecting all possible GPS signals. I know the iPhone collects elevation data, as I have an app that shows this. Likewise, concrete parking lot, signal reduction as well.

Anyone working in high-rise buildings try this from the upper floors?

an idle mind . . .

Yes. My office is on the 21st floor of a building in Manhattan. I left my car in a lot in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. No problem with the remote app.

So you are saying that it prompts you to go down 21 floors? How is that expressed?

Does it start with "Open window"?
GRVR likes this.

There's a time to think, and a time to act. And this, gentlemen, is no time to think.

If you are asking whether you can start the car remotely with a window open the answer is no.

I think he means the opposite. If your car is on the 8th level of a parking facility will you be able to locate which floor it is on. There are some factors to consider one of them would be does the telemetry system have access to GPS or RF from its location?

My guess is even if GPS were available you would not be able to determine the height in a tall building.
