Stationary Cooling?

I never saw that feature as a menu item on the app. My remote fob lets me perform a similar function on my 2013 AH3

Stationary cooling.
Individual climate control begins even before you start your journey: In the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, the car key is able to remotely active the automatic climate control.
During hot weather, Stationary cooling cools the interior from an extremely high temperature to a bearable level in two to three minutes, without any need to start the engine. The electric climate compressor takes care of the cooling function using the energy gained in the high-power battery.

As soon as the engine starts up, the temperature is then lowered further to a comfortable range or to the desired temperature.

Stationary cooling in the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 can be activated via the radio control key before you enter the vehicle. This allows you to create a more pleasant climate in the vehicle even before you start your journey.
