Can I turn on AC or ventilate from the app?

    Being in Florida, a car sitting in a parking lot in summer can get quite hot. I was wondering if can turn on the A/C or some kind of ventilation from the phone app when I'm about to head for the car (or have the car come to me) so that it won't be quite so scorching when I get in.

    As a side note, is it possible to leave the car with the windows cracked? That's what I do now to keep the temperature down from incineration levels.

    Yes! The app lets you turn on the air conditioning system.

    tint and sunshade would be your friend and the climate control with the app will be very useful.

    If you have the PANO roof, you can vent that. You can't open the windows remotely. I don't know if the car will lock if you leave the windows cracked -- never tried it.

    There is also a feature to keep the interior from getting too hot by automatically turning on the a/c. Right now it has a fixed setpoint, but it is supposed to be resetable in future firmware releases.

    Of course, but I do it from Apple watch app (called Remote S), which does a few other things as well.

    with 8.0 software

    Tesla keeps temp below 40C/105F by automatically venting cabin & turning on AC when needed. Can do this for up to a year on a full charge.

    Select Cabin Temperature Protection in Settings

    That should do the trick. It doesn't have to be cool when I get back, just not burning hot. Good thinking Tesla!
