The pin to drive feature makes the summon feature intermittent on my model X.

With the pin to drive on, sometimes when you push and hold for 5 seconds, the car just blink then does nothing. You have to wake up the car, then wait at least 30 seconds before you do the push & hold. Turn off the pin to drive solved the issue.

My main deterrent to using the pin to drive is I feel like it would be a pain if you ever need someone else to drive your car, like a valet, car cleaning etc. You either have to remember go in and turn it off each time, or give them the pin.

I don't use PIN to drive, but this is exactly what valet mode is for. I haven't tried it out...does it still ask for PIN in valet mode?
