Camping mode for the 3


Apr 27, 2016
Should be getting the car by the start of June or so and go on a little road trip. Just curious if anyone has tried Camping mode. Saw one video (
) but he couldn't get it into camping mode. Anyone figure out a way to do this?I'll mostly be staying in houses and a hotel but wouldn't mind camping out in a couple of state parks if I had the opportunity.

How is any app going to work where neither the car nor the phone have coverage? which is most likely scenario when some one actually goes "camping".

From what I understand direct BT communication only allows lock/unlock but none of the other functions.
Great question... if there is no reception you'd be out of luck. At that point it is on Tesla to solve this problem.
