    Enable/Disable Valet Mode from iPhone App

    Tesla has release v2.5 of this app. We now get the option to turn on/off Valet Mode remotely (if in park) and can do referrals right from the app.

    Just installed the 2.5 update for the iOS app. I had a look, but I wasn't able to find a thread on it.

    I'm currently traveling, so I can't test it out. Features sound quite cool!

    I thought the "From Elon" button was a nice touch.

    Would love to be able to see the trip meter/odometer in the app.

    I hate the FromElon button.

    Takes up space for something I'm not comfortable with in the least. If I wanted to be car salesmen I would have.

    I get that they wanted to make it easy, but geesh.

    Oh, well at least I got the time remaining and that's what I wanted.

    I think the button will have messages other than the referral program in the future.

    It seems to connect to my car faster than before? Anyone else think so? Before there was a 7-10 second pause, now it seems like it only takes a few seconds.

    I'm getting the all too familiar "waking car.." message that eventually times out saying "A connection to vehicle could not be made". Car is set to always connected etc.... this issue has been much talked about on other threads. Clearly the app update has nothing to do with the problem.

    Well, he and his friends are about as old as the Model X waiting list so, let's see how high he climbs up the referral list ;)

    What does the "From Elon" button do?

    Since upgrading my app will no longer open at all. It opened once, downloaded Elon's message, but never connected to my car and still will not. In the meantime Remote S has no problem.

    Have you tried uninstalling the app, restarting the iPhone, then reinstalling the app?
    You shouldn't need to, but that has worked for me with other apps that don't function properly after an update.

    That is my next step. I have it taken the time yet, since Remote S is working fine.

    Has the ability to turn on climate control remotely always been disabled hen the battery charge is low, or is that something new? Had 50 rated miles tonight and the app would not let me turn on the AC remotely (despite it being 100F outside and 120+ inside the car!)

    Looks like a very nice update.

    How nice it would be if (all) in-car software releases had current release notes as does the smartphone app.

    Even that one single line about bug fixes and minor enhancements is helpful. Why? Glad you asked. Well, in part, because if that's the only release note, then one need not expect other, perhaps more substantive changes to the user experience from that release.
