Heated Seats shortcut?

Hi. I have an L494 and the first thing I want to do in the cold weather is put the heated seats on. However as the infotainment seems to take a little while to boot up I start turnng to get out of my drive and the reversing camera comes on. There is a heated seats button, but during the boot up it’s unresponsive. Whilst the graphics for the heated seats look great, unless there is a shortcut I’m missing, this to me is ‘form over function’ compared to just having a button like my other cars have had.....[/i] 2005 RRS First Edition Supercharged

On the latest, you can press the climate temperature button and then it becomes the heated seat setting rather than cabin temperature setting temporarily. Once pushed, the temperature changes to a seat graphic with 3 blue/red dots. Twist it for heated (or cooled) seats. I think MY16 was the cutoff. RRS MY17 SDV6 AB

Doesn't it come on automatically in the cold?

No, you have to wait for the boot up to complete and then in 2015MY you have to tap the screen to agree to the conditions before you can get the seat heater button that is in the heater control panel to do anything........... it was changed for the conventional position on the rotary heater controls for 2016MY after lots of complaints. On 2013 -2015 cars it is a true pain. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV - a test car before Seeing if I could go to totally Petrol/Diesel free motoring

Sorry - I completed misread the title and post and was talking about the heat front screen, not seats. Embarassed

Agreed. I had an MY16 as a courtesy car when my MY15.5 went in for some work. I loved the 'new' buttons for heated seats. Probably the best difference between the 2 models. The Infotainment system in the MY15 is missing a few CPU cycles so very slow to start and respond. SVR with a few Urban touches.
