I would follow Waldo's suggestion.
If the climate system is on when you turn off the vehicle it should resume in that same mode when you remote start the vehicle.
Although you indicated that the display in NAV shows Climate OFF when your keying the vehicle off - if thats the case then when you remote start the climate will be OFF too.

I am having the same issue. I leave the auto engaged with the AC also on when I shut the car off. When I start using auto start, the lights come one as if the system is operating, including the auto and ac bottons, but no air is coming out. Once I inset the key, the system engages and cool air blows out. I have a call into the dealer, but have not heard back yet.
I've read about this problem more than once and it's mostly with factory installed remote starts. It has to do with the remote start not being tied in to the correct accessory wire under the dash. Remember, even if it's a factory installed system, it's actually an aftermarket part that was installed after the vehicle was built.
It is for this reason that I purchased an aftermarket bi-directional system from Autoalarmpro.com and installed it myself. Works beautifully and I can leave my climate controls set any way I like and they are on when I enter the car.
My advice is I'd take it to an Autosound dealer willing to listen to your problem and take a look for you to see if the remote start was installed incorrectly.
