UVO Remote start on 2016 Sedona?

I'm looking at purchasing a lightly used 2016 Sedona SX-Limited.

Does this model have remote start via the UVO app?

On the original window sticker it says it has the key-fob remote start if that helps.

Thanks I was hoping for the UVO app. The fob can't start my van in the garage two blocks from my office.

Why would you want to do that? Is it to get the AC running so it's nice and cool by the time you get in it? Seems like if you hit the start by mistake, that engine could be running for a long while before you find out. Even if it has an timed auto shut-off, I wouldn't want to do it unless it's within sight.

It works well for my other car which has a remote start app but if the tech is too new for you then by all means avoid it.

I have no need for remote start. Had it in a previous vehicle and never once used it. Then again, I am the type that prefer to park my car and walk in to place a to-go order, instead of idling the car for 25-minute going through the drive-thru line. I concede I am in the minority.
