    I just received this update, and unfortunately due to silly Canadian laws regarding a fob being present, the car does not have Summon. it was not mentioned in the release either.

    Sad :(

    Fyi 2018.24.1 updates started rolling out 2hrs ago in Canada

    It is not in the settings or part of the release. I have confirmed it with Tesla after doing the update.

    I think that Tesla mentioned summon in one of the EAP features. If Tesla not going to have that feature in Canada forever, shall we at least make some complain of it?

    Brutal! I was so excited for this update. Its perfect for my garage and my dog who needs a running start to jump in the back.

    What is the law exactly? Im having a hard time finding this law on google.

    I'm going to summon my MP and let them know how I feel about this...

    From my understanding it has something to do with a immobilizer law.

    Reddit comment has rumour of model 3 fobs - that could solve the problem I guess.

    I'd much rather have the feature than a rebate.

    Me too. Especially looking forward to Smart Summon.

    Hopefully this gets resolved swiftly.

    If Tesla do release a fob for Model 3, then this issue will be resolved.

    Who wants to carry a fob when you've been spoiled with just a phone (and card as backup)?

    Literally everyone who has constant issues with phone key (and doesn't like pulling out a card every time to get in their car).

    Omg.. this phone as a key thing is really starting to piss me off.

    It will work 100% as described for a day or two.. then its stops working.

    It was pouring rain after work, run to my car.. door wont open. When this happens 90% of the time i just have to pull out my phone and unlock the phone... but then there are other times where im forced to use the key card..

    So i had to put down what i was carrying on the wet ground, reach into my other pocket and pull out the card. I get i my car (finally) and then the car sees my phone... wtf!

    This thread is focusing summon. Not phone as key.

    This is pretty lame and a clear case of poor regulations. The spirit of the regulation is that a car is immobilized to prevent theft when the owner is no longer operating it. My car should certainly not become immobilized when I as the owner is in control of it. I think common sense would make this regulation very easy to update to satisfy its intended purpose which is anti theft. In the case of the 3 the phone is clearly the "fob" and and as long as it is capable of immobilizing based on proximity it should satisfy this regulation. The problem will be actually getting anyone to do anything about it. Tesla I suspect will not waste time trying to change Canadian regulations for this one feature, they simple have far more pressing issues. It will be up to Canadian owners to get the regulation amended, then I am sure Tesla will unlock the feature.
