    Hello All,

    I have a 2018 LR RWD. VIN 28,XXX

    I really like the recent feature added of Sentry Mode.

    The only problem is that I would like to keep it on all the time vs. having to turn it on every time I leave the vehicle.

    I read somewhere that this would cost 1 mile per hour on the range, and for that, I am ok with that.

    I would like Tesla to give us the option, On or OFF.

    Anyone else?

    Vin

    A developer of an App called Stats is working on this automation. Take a look at this review which did an awesome job on explaining what the app offers:

    I have it and it's worth every penny.

    I’m expecting this capability to be available in a software update at some point.

    I'm just worried about thumb drive space. One hour in a restaurant resulted in 8GB of space. And as a result, halted dash cam with a grey X as it was out of space. I too, however, would like the option to keep it on as a permanent toggle once I get a larger drive of course!

    Hi

    I have 2019.8.4

    I have an issue trying to keep sentry mode on!


    While car is in park:

    controls > security > turn ON sentry mode

    Then press drive on the shaft then back to Park and it turns off Sentry.

    I want to keep it on all the time when in park and not every time i park the car.

    That isn't an option yet, it's coming in a future update. For now you have to turn it on every time from the car or through the app.
