Remote Horn?

Hi,

I've been playing around with the ConnectedDrive iPhone app, and I can get my car to flash its lights (albeit after waiting for ages for it to happen), but I don't seem to have an option for remote horn, despite the fact that the car reports it's good for the "remote lights/horn' service.

Is this just a UK can't-do-that thing, or am I being cheated out of remote horning?

It was on an earlier version, but it disappeared, I imagine for legal reasons....
