Yes, the Fordpass app works well (I have a 2018 Ecosport SES). You can schedule a time for remote start (like 8am tomorrow morning). You can also lock/unlock doors, locate the vehicle, remotely check the tire pressure (each tire individually) and the gas level, etc. It's pretty cool. It's not really free - the vehicle comes with 5 yrs of fordpass service included. But after 5 years, I assume we'll need to pay a fee to continue the service. I have no idea what that fee will be.
