MyVauxhall-App and Grandland X

Post by Midinotes » Thu Jul 30, 2020 9:16 pm

Has anyone tried the MyVauxhall-App, whether iOS or Android with their Vauxhall Grandland X? I have set up my Vauxhall account and I have managed to get Vauxhall Connect working with the Sat Nav. It now displays traffic information and road closures, as well as weather conditions. However I thought the MyVauxhall-App was supposed to connect over Bluetooth to the Grandland and display fuel level, distance and other stuff by syncing to the car. I have my phone connected to my Grandland by Bluetooth but I cannot get the app to recognise anything from the car?

Here is a screenshot of the app, the only thing that works is the map which I have redacted in the photo. The other data is only what I manually added to the app and is now out of date.

Would really love to get this working. My Grandland is a 1.2 Sport model from June 2018.

Regards
Simon

The MyVauxhall app must be open/running for it to record the details of the journey, you should see connected across the top briefly. When you turn off the engine you receive a notification with the previous trip details. It doesn't record anything if you don't drive, starting the car is not sufficient.

In Android you can check if it's connected by swiping down, not sure if it's the same with iOS.

On Android I have set a tasker routine to start Bluetooth Tethering on device start for the live traffic etc and the MyVauxhall app and Spotify when my Bluetooth is connected to Grandland X and it works well.

Thanks Robbo. I'll give that a try although lately I have had lots of issues with the app not logging in to my account. Out of interest what year is your Grandland?

I have a 2018 and the app says it is not compatible maybe this is your issue.

Thanks Mark. The app has never said it is incompatible, I assumed since all Grandlands have the same infotainment systems it would just be a software update. What annoys me is that there no information on the app store about which models specifically the app IS compatible with, and the developer's website and support links just take you to the Vauxhall website... which has zero information about which vehicles specifically the app works with.
