    Roadster reservations

    I just reserved a Roadster founder edition just now. They want $5000 credit card deposit right now. And then they want $45k wire transfer in the next 10 days for the base model reservation or $245k wire transfer in the next 10 days for the founder's edition. At 1,000 reservations for the...

    Remote S iPhone App Apple Watch - Problem Resolved

    Yes. Multiple confirmations.

    Who is my S talking to?

    Are you or someone else using the web browser on your Tesla? One of the IPs is a web address to some guy's personal website. You.DontLike.Us It's the IP for the domain you.dontlike.us It lists a bunch of sites hosted on that website, including mayfieldyachtclub.com. So... maybe you've been...

    Remote S iPhone App Apple Watch - Problem Resolved

    It already works now without it being tethered. It only needs to be paired in the beginning for the iPhone to send the user login credentials to the watch app. Most likely yes for the second answer, but I can't say for sure without having a Watch 3.

    Audio/Video out of sync via Bluetooth

    VLC does streaming content as well including YouTube (might need some plugins). You can always hotspot your Android to your laptop. That's what I do. But usually I just download the videos I want to watch beforehand and play it back on VLC on my laptop in the car. If I'm not mistaken, VLC added...

    Model S REST API

    I received the same message just now. They're going to stop the sale of Remote S after two weeks. Sadly, this also means that there will be no more Tesla app for the Apple Watch. But for those who already bought the app, it will keep working and will not be deleted from your device. Apple...

    Hold the steering wheel...

    It doesn't nag without AP. I've sat in long traffic jams while just feathering the gas (electricity?) pedal to know this. To get rid of the nag is simple, too. Just tie a paperweight to the steering wheel. Of course, I don't condone or recommend that type of behavior, but it's possible to get...

    Audio/Video out of sync via Bluetooth

    I watch movies/tv using VLC on my MacBook connected via BT to my Tesla. Then I press "g" to change the audio delay to around -500 to -550 ms. That's how much audio lag there is: over half a second.

    Can someone explain "Summon" to me

    I can confirm that if continuous press is turned on then the autopark via double-tapping the park button will not work. Also after you double tap the park button, you're supposed to choose the direction on the touchscreen and then autopark will happen after you exit from the car. I'm going to...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Since Tesla removed the battery current info from the API for cars on firmware 8.1 and above, the app can't figure out how much battery drain there is on the car. The only information it has is the current, voltage and power from the charger. I'm currently working on a solution to this. When I...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Yes. Another user on this forum made a YouTube video of it, and it made the news.

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I'm going to push another update to fix this. Here's the changelog for the version 3.3.8 that I just submitted to the App Store today (will be available in approximately 3 days): - Cleaned up the UI for when users who cannot see the battery current anymore (anyone who updated to car firmware...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Should be in the Force Touch menu in the charge screen, no? Labeled as "Open Port"? If the port is already open, then it will not have an Open Port button.

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    The 8.1 update to the car's firmware removed the API's ability to see the car's battery current. And it's not a system-wide API change. It only affects anyone who updated to version 8.1. I kept that stat there because those who haven't updated to 8.1 will still be able to use those stats. I'm...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Yea, if you already put a review and updated to the newest version, you can just resubmit it to add it to the current version reviews. No need to even change it. Takes like 5 seconds to do but helps me out a lot. Thanks.
  16. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    The new update to Remote S is out now. It would be greatly appreciated if you guys can re-rate the app whenever it is convenient for you. Every time there is an update, the app also pops up a one-time request asking for a rating as well. The new update should address the remaining bugs in the...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I will look into what you're suggesting, but the 4-button menu system that you're talking about is part of the Apple OS, and I have very little control over how it operates. I don't have my Apple Watch with me, but doesn't the menu system vibrate a little when you press a button? If not, maybe...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Thanks for giving us a temporary fix solution. I have already submitted a permanent fix to the App Store, and it should be available within the next few days depending on how quickly Apple reviews it. The reason why the app crashed was not because it didn't have coordinates, but rather because...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Someone who had the crashing bug sent me his login info. I logged in as him on several of my devices, and there were no crashes. This leads me to believe that the bug is specific to either the device, iOS, or internet connection. Since iOS 10.3 just came out recently, it might have something to...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Seeing that I haven't started receiving a flood of emails saying that Remote S is crashing after the 17.11.3 firmware update, and also that the firmware isn't crashing Remote S on my own Tesla, I'm going to guess that this crashing bug is quite rare. I still haven't received any PMs from anyone...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I can get a bug fix in the app store within a day. But first I need someone who has a crashing Remote S app to give me their login info so that I can see what is crashing the app. Remote S isn't crashing for my own Tesla, so it is near impossible for me to fix the bug because I cannot see it. If...

    Model S REST API

    I used battery current to get the instantaneous charge rate of superchargers since they usually only give you an average of the whole charging session.

    Opps - Remote S crashes

    After I looking through my code and doing some testing, it looks like Remote S already has protection from when Tesla removes fields. I don't know what the cause of the crash is then. I would need someone's login with 8.1 to see what's causing the crash. I'm currently in Taiwan using a hotel...

    Model S REST API

    Vehicle config is recent, but it seems to contain a lot of the same information in the previous sections so it seems redundant. I see some new things in it, though: "trim_badging": "90d" "has_ludicrous_mode": false, Is your sun roof the glass one that doesn't move? I'm trying to figure out...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Sadly Apple still hasn't opened up Siri's API to every app type yet. But if you really want it, I can create a one-off app that does this. But it can't be integrated to Remote S, because Remote S isn't one of the types of apps that Apple allows to use their Siri API.

    Model S REST API

    Can you give an example output of your 8.1 fields so those of us without it can compare with our 8.0 logs and see how they differ.
  27. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I'm pretty certain that the reason is because I didn't finish implementing complications on the Apple Watch. Right now it just acts as a shortcut to my app. But I didn't do things like create a "sample pictures gallery" of the complications, which is probably why it doesn't show up in the...

    Model S REST API

    I actually tend to find the heading to be correct most of the time. It's usually the heading of the direction, and not where the front of the car is facing. I have a parking spot that I have to back into, and the heading is always correctly pointing towards the back of the car after I park...
  29. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    If anyone's here to check why Remote S isn't working, it's a system wide outage and no Tesla apps/websites using their API will work at the moment. There is no ETA on when it will start working again as I have not been told anything and I think even Tesla isn't sure when it will be back up...

    App login issues?

    I don't think Tesla would want to highlight their problems to people unaware that their app isn't working. What they should have done is give an error message that shows that the servers are down system-wide and not just only on your specific account/car.
  31. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    You need to call Tesla to add the new car to the your current MyTesla account and remove the old car from your MyTesla account. Assuming that you're talking about a private sale, you need to provide proof that you own the vehicle (and the new owner of your old vehicle has to do the same on...

    Model S REST API

    I'm not going to say how I got it, but I will say that they aren't just going to hand it out to some random person who wants to make an app or website. No, Remote S operates at a loss. Tesla apps in general make very little money. Ever notice that a lot of tesla websites and apps eventually...
  33. AllenWong

    Model S REST API

    They do, and I have one. I'm not going to say more than that, but Tesla does have an official API guide and does provide API keys to non-Tesla companies. It's very hard to obtain one, though. You'll need to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to get one.
  34. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Thanks for reporting this. I looked into it and fixed it for the next app update. This also affected the instantaneous charge rate, so I fixed it for that as well.
  35. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    What you're describing is having a 3rd party server run camp mode (or any commands) for you, so that the app isn't even required to be running. That falls under the category of background scheduling, which I have been exploring for the past two years trying to figure out a way to do it without...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Unfortunately there isn't a way yet because Tesla tied HomeLink to Summon. It's not just one preset at 95%, it's several options. When you press the Remote S logo now, it will give a bunch of preset charge limits, so that you can quickly change it without adjusting it manually. Have a look:
  37. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I can add a 95% preset charge limit in the website when you press the Remote S logo. I am currently away from home on a week long vacation without an Internet connection. So all I can do right now is use the iPhone. But when I get internet again, I will added the 95% preset for you. Or you can...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I have the same idea of where I'm moving forward with this project. I'm glad that you appreciate the support for orientation changes. Most people don't realize that Remote S is actually a Landscape app where the controls are at your thumbs and all the panels don't overlap. On the iPhone 4S, all...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Should be in the Force touch menu of the Map screen (last screen).

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Report the bug to Tesla? Could be something wrong with your keyfob like low battery. I know the service center does tests on keyfobs when they aren't working well. I know because when I first got my Tesla, my keyfob drained my battery really quickly for some reason and they replaced it. TouchID...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    It seems like they did. Actually, I think they even removed the roof controls, because I don't see it in the screenshots. I'm not getting rid of the all-in-one interface. I know many people who like it. A simplified UI will be a separate option, because some users want a less cluttered...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Sad to see that there aren't new functions in the new app. That means that I'm going to go ahead and finish up work on my new UI. What do you guys think of the Tesla's new app UI? Is this the direction you want me to take Remote S's new UI? This is the simplified prototype UI that I've been...

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Could be a number of reasons why you aren't getting notifications on your watch. But it's mostly just some settings you need to change: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204791 You can always assume that Remote S is trying to wake your car and connect to it as soon as you open it. As Saghost...
  44. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I suggest installing the official Tesla app for notifications. They don't have an Apple Watch app, but the notifications that appear on your phone should appear in your Watch as well.
  45. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I am working on a new UI for the iPhone as well as other things. Those who followed the Apple Watch thread on here from the beginning would remember that I created Remote S because of the Apple Watch. That's why the Apple Watch app's UI is so refined and intuitive. But because Apple required me...
  46. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    Well, I'm using the same commands as Tesla's app does, so it's probably a bug with Tesla or... It could also be that when you opened the door, the HVAC kicked on, and that actually does cause the charger to charge your car to power the HVAC even though it's not actually in "charge mode". So...
  47. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I will need to find a place to put that information. Perhaps where it says "Added: " on the bottom left, I can change that text to say "12A/12A" since the word "added" is not important once people are used to seeing it there when not plugged in, and will know what it means when it is plugged in.
  48. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    I don't actually know the battery voltage. It's not one of the fields provided by the API. I did however conclude that the voltage is around 380 V based on my extensive research. If I'm wrong about it for your particular vehicle, you can change the default value in the app's settings. I don't...
  49. AllenWong

    Remote S: Tesla app for Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

    The new update that should have fixed all the bugs was released yesterday. If you guys don't mind, please kindly leave a rating or review for the app, because whenever the app has no ratings/reviews on a new update, app sales for Remote S drops by 80%. I appreciate those of you who leave a...
