Feature request: car reminds you if you left the 'key' in the car

Does anyone know if this is coming? I often forget my phone in the charger (with the door closed) and then run back to get it, given both my phone and car could go missing. Seems like it would be easy to have a chime go off to remind you to take your phone, much like 'normal' cars do with passive keys when you open the driver-side door.

I have the next-best thing. I have my phone paired with my watch, which is configured to vibrate like the world's ending if it loses the connection to my phone. In testing, I can't get more than about 10 meters away before my watch notices I was a derp and left the phone in the car.

Mine too, nice feature. Do you have the Tesla app on your watch as well?

You can set the Tesla to beep its horn when it automatically locks. If you don't hear the beep when you walk away then you probably left your phone in the car.

...….much like "Normal" cars do?

Tesla IS becoming the norm.

LOL

Do it like I do it.

If I don't hear that autolock horn sound after 10 seconds of walking away from the car...I know my phone is still in it.
If I don't see those mirrors folded in after walking away from my car.....I know my phone is still in there.

Why, what can they possibly do with it? Can't drive the Tesla without my pin... oh I know, they may post on the tesla forum without my knowledge.

What can they do with your login to Tesla?

Is that what you are asking?

Are you willing to PM me with it?

Question: Have you ever logged your phone into your Tesla account? Was it necessary?

It actually does. The car won’t lock with key in it so you will not hear the lock chime when walking away
