    Does anyone know where the receivers (antennas) are located on the car to detect the Fob? It would be nice if I could just go there and wait for the handles to pop out instead of slowly walking along the side of the car.

    The user manual clearly shows one in each side mirror and one in the middle of the rear trunk. When Tesla technicians were diagnosing trouble with my car unlocking, they were moving the key around the mirrors. The link shows only FM in the mirrors, so I'm not sure which of those is accurate. However, the manual shows a keyfob low battery location on the front windshield, so that could indicate a dash antenna.
