    Anyone else wish this?

    So I’ve had my beloved Model 3 with white interior and keep wishing one of the updates pushed out an interior view update within the phone’s climate control setting. It has always showed the black interior and wish it would reflect the interior I have. Does anyone else wish this as well?

    Phone unlocks door but key card needed to drive

    For the last week or two, our Model 3 has unlocked without a problem as we approach, but it requires us to touch the key card behind the cup holder to drive. This behavior is the same for both phones that are connected to the car, and before the last couple weeks we haven't had this happen in...

    Correct iPhone settings for bluetooth unlock?

    Walk-up and unlock doesn't ever work when my phone is locked and in my pocket. I always have to physically remove my phone from my pocket and then either hold it horizontally or unlock the phone itself before pulling on door handle actually unlocks the car. My guess is that the gyroscope moving...

    Frunk Unlock Button in phone app

    I would suggest that the phone app for my Model Y be changed so that the frunk unlock button on the main page is changed to open the rear hatch instead of the frunk. Hatch is used by everyone way more often than the frunk. Basic user interface design to put the most used buttons where the least...

    Inconsistent control of sunroof and AC through the App

    My car is parked in the sun in my parking lot and it is a warm day. I decided to check if my cabin overheat protection was working (I know it is set to 'on' in the car) so I opened the app. The app reported an interior temp of 117F, which concerned me because the COP is supposed to keep the...

    Essential or Useful apps to have

    Preparing for my Model 3 delivery in less than a week and was wondering, what are some essential or useful apps to have? So far I've installed Tesla and a better route planner, but are there others worth downloading or signing-up for right away? I have looked into Plugshare and ChargePoint...

    Is my Tesla App missbehaving?

    I'm currently updating to 2020.41 (at work, no WiFi signal when parked at home) but the download progress on the app is frozen at 100% for about an hour and a half now. I've gone over to the car and it shows the same. However, I've also noticed that the "Smart Summon" button is not shown on the...

    Problem with app re upgrades

    Recently there was talk about people mistakenly ordering the FSD upgrade on their phone apps and not getting a refund. When I first heard about it, I thought there was no way this could happen. When I looked at my app, I had to check the thing, and then hit the big PAY button. Then I updated the...

    Tesla app for Android version 3.10.2-388 (Nov 27, 2019) now incompatible with some phones?

    I've had my Model 3 since March this year, and only had minor quibbles with the phone app on my Motorola moto g(6) phone. But since the last app update, I couldn't find the app in the app store. Looked it up online to see that Google Play says the app is now no longer compatible with my phone...

    Locking with the app - check for phone in car or window open

    My wife and I went to the gym. I left my phone in the trunk. We walked away and she remotely locked the car with her phone. The app showed it locked. Later it timed out and unlocked. There's wasn't any notification this happened. (We have a Camry and can use one fob to lock the car with the...

    Curious phone key failure

    My model 3 is just over a year old and at the beginning I followed some of the many discussions about the failures and different phones, etc. I never had a problem except a couple of times when I think my body was between the phone and the car. But no issues for the last ~10 months, until...

    Can't Lock Keys Inside Vehicle

    I used to be able to leave my keys in the vehicle and then lock it from the app. After locking the vehicle from the app, I wouldn't be able to unlock by tapping the door handles. I could only unlock from the app. I just noticed this is no longer the case. Anyone else notice this? Am I wrong...

    Sentry Mode Phone Notification

    Sadly, my Model 3 was broken into yesterday, with the passenger rear quarter glass being broken first, then my rear passenger window. I had sentry mode activated, the blue button appeared on my phone, and I made sure that it appeared as recording on my touchscreen. My biggest fault in having...

    Rash of "Vehicle Connection Errors"

    In the past couple of weeks, I have gotten numerous "vehicle connection errors" when try to preheat the car in my condo parking lot. So I am unable to start the HVAC, and in the current cold spell this means a very cold cabin and a cold battery when I go for my first trip of the day...

    Trunk does not open unless I place my phone near the front/passenger doors

    Model 3, 2018.50.6, iPhone XS, Tesla app version 3.8.1 This has been happening for many months. Any time that I walk up to my Model 3 from the rear the trunk does not unlock. This also affects the charger, as I am unable to remove the charger unless the car detects my phone. I have to walk to...

    Activate the rear window defroster from app

    Is there a way to activate the rear window defroster using the Tesla app? I thought that I read somewhere that turning the heat to high would do this but when I tried doing so the other day before leaving work, I arrived to my car to find that the defroster was not on and it did not appear like...

    Some iPhone Contacts Not Loading

    It doesn't look like anyone has raised this issue in last year or two. Has anyone experienced a problem of the car only downloading some contacts from an iPhone? Mine only transfers the contacts with last names from A through the beginning of N. I had read somewhere that the car is capped at...

    TuneIn radio no longer pauses when I take a phone call (on 8.0)

    On 7.1 if I made or received a phone call the station I was listening to on TuneIn would pause during the call (no matter the duration of the call) and resume where it paused at the end of my call. This morning's drive (first time with 8.0) I was listening to TuneIn, got a call and when the call...

    Cannot Connect without First Rebooting Car

    In recent weeks (months?) I've been unable to connect to the car using my mobile app unless I reboot the car. After rebooting, I can connect instantly. I've verified this behavior in a controlled situation where I was standing very near the car, could not connect with either of two phones...

    You can adjust the EQ while on a phone call

    I just disdiscovered that you can adjust the EQ while talking on the phone. There was a weird kind of rattling noise while talking on the phone so I thought I'd check to see if I could EQ you out that sound, I presses the EQ button and you can adjust the EQ and turn on or off Dolby surround. I...

    Ringtone in car while connected to Bluetooth

    My tesla has never played my phone's ringtone over the car speakers (my last car did this) but after the last software update I heard my phone's ringtone over the speakers, but only once. Does anyone else hear their phone's ringtone over the speakers? Or just the default beep beep the car...

    GPS Location Phone App "Feature"

    I live on Maui, but just finished a long work assignment in Albuquerque, NM, with the good fortune of being able to have my Model S with me. The downside to the entire experience has been the long wait for my car to be shipped back to me, as no rental car comes close to filling the void. My...

    App voor Windows phone

    Beste Forumleden, aangezien ik nieuw ben op dit forum is dit punt misschien al eerder besproken maar helaas nog steeds een probleem. Ik heb sedert oktober mijn model S, en al veel langer een Windows Phone. Nu is een van de voordelen van de model S dat je met een App de auto kan volgen en...

    Cannot connect to phone app after supercharging

    I had an issue with supercharging this weekend. I went to a few superchargers for the first time and had issues connecting to my phone app. After I connected the supercharger my phone app would not connect to the car. It would just say trying to contact car. Thinking it was the app not working...

    Happy New Owner and One Question

    So, after a long self-inflicted wait, the day finally came and completely failed to disappoint. It had been a really long time since the test drive, so was continually amazed at the acceleration (and lack of associated rev'ing noise). I am a very proud owner :cool::cool: Everything was...
