    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 it was ever activated.

    Bug report it to Tesla that you want a way to activate the rear defroster (and rear mirrors) from the app. It’s either a missing feature or the app has UX (usability) issues in making it not obvious how to do that function.

    I don't think there is a way to turn it on manually from the app at the moment. Seems to come on when using pre-conditioning when ambient temp is below 50.

    It never works for me even in sub zero temperatures.
