    Still no seat warmer switch! Perhaps they're not very effective without a body in the seat.

    You need to pair you smart phone with your car. You have to wait until you get it and turn on remote control.

    The updated app seems to wake the car and connect far more quickly than before the update. Anyone else with the same experience?

    The app for the BMW i3 is so laboriously slow in connecting to the car, that I now start it up and then go cook dinner!

    I remember that day at the Tesla meeting in Gosford how quickly the Tesla app could honk the horn. The Australian version of the BMW i3 app won't let you do that, but it does let you flash the headlights. So it's like press the flash headlight button, and then they'll flash by Friday...

    It takes about 24 hours after delivery before the app will work.
    You can download and sign in now but it will say something like no car associated with this account.
    Tesla assign your car to your account on the day of delivery so that you can digitally sign their iPad indicating you have taken delivery.
    I'm told more changes are required after that before the App works.

    Yes it's substantially faster.

    - - - Updated - - -

    As an interstate delivery I had to press a big "accept" button on mytesla portal before the app connection would get underway. It was active a few hours later, and RDIO the next day.

    New update is out for the X. Phone looks good but my iPads app stopped installing part way through. For the time being, the app no longer appears to be supported on the ipad.

    It appears the tic marks in the charge section have disappeared on my iphone since latest up date. There used to be small tic marks dividing the charge bar into ten parts. OS is ios 9.0.2., Tesla app version 2.5.1..

    They are there, just very faint in the middle of the box.
