    IFTTT and Model S

    I think you are correct that this would require a variety of services and apps. Dashboard provides rudimentary notification and automation for charging. EVE for Tesla can integrate with IFTTT but I have never used it. Sad that evMote is gone. Tasker or Automagic could do the geofencing and...

    IFTTT and Model S

    I have a heavily automated home with about 70 devices connected to my smartthings hub, and have yet to find a good use case to connect my MX to Ifttt or the hub. I use the excellent android app Dashboard for Tesla to notify and (when needed) automate charging.

    RECOMMENDATION ON CHARGING

    Welcome to the forum and Tesla family. One size does not fit all, but I have been happy with the NEMA 15-40 outlet and the charging cable that comes with the vehicle. The Wall Connector is more attractive and can offer a higher amperage if you bought the 72A on board charger. It would also...

    Android versus apple tesla app

    By far the best Tesla app on either platform is a 3rd party app for Android called Dashboard for Tesla. It is as fast as the official app, and offers many additional functions : Android Wear support, widgets, summon, smart charging behavior, smart climate controls, speed clocking and more. The...

    Web app to display text messages?

    Thanks, I will try it. I wasn't even aware of this trip planner, usually using evtripplanner instead. Does A Better Routeplanner take elevation change into it's calculations?

    Web app to display text messages?

    A common complaint in these forums is the lack of text message Bluetooth integration between the car and our phones. It seems to me that a web app to display text messages may be a work-around. Is anyone aware of a product that may fit this bill, or alternatively, is there a developer that would...

    Total Solar Eclipse - Aug 21, 2017

    Questions for the astrophiles on this forum : I obviously intend to buy eclipse glasses for the family, but am trying to decide whether to get a telescope and the necessary camera upgrades for photography. I have always "kinda" wanted a telescope, but sky visibility from my house is poor and it...

    Total Solar Eclipse - Aug 21, 2017

    I rented a house in Highlands NC, planning to take my family. My current plan is to take my kids on a hike without telling them in advance what awaits. I will be prepared with 5 glasses and hope to time the arrival at an awesome overlook with event itself. Of course, we will drive the Tail of...

    Quiet turn signals

    Yes, this is on the Interstate at around 75mph, but is the same commute that I have done for 12 years in a variety of previous vehicles. This is the only one in which I can not hear the signal. The other possibility is that there is something wrong with my car, but I am now guessing that it...

    Quiet turn signals

    It is interesting that different people have such very different experiences with the volume, and it raises the question that different cars may have different signal volume settings. Obviously, it can be subjective, but I was listening very carefully this morning on my commute, and it is...

    Quiet turn signals

    Perhaps the issue is with my stereo system overwhelming the turn signal at level 5 volume. I am listening to music instead of sports or news radio much more than in the past due to the convenience of Slacker. I will ask the SC if the turn signal volume is adjustable.

    Quiet turn signals

    Maybe it is just me, but is the turn signal indicator sound awfully quiet? It may be that previous automobiles had the turn signal sound set as a priority over the stereo sound system. Or maybe I am listening to music at a higher volume than I did in the past. Or maybe my wife is right and I...

    Software Update 17.17.4

    I have tried several different extenders over the years and have always been disappointed by the performance. I recently upgraded to a mesh home network with Google WiFi using 3 units to cover my 3 story 6500sq ft house, and am very impressed with the speed, coverage, and usability. There are...
