    I've changed the car's name in the car - and it display's the new name when pressing on the Tesla logo.

    But the new Mobile App is stuck with the previous name.

    Anyone else seeing this??? If so, anyone able to get this working???

    I would try logging out of the app and logging back in again. If that doesn't work, I'd log out, reboot the center screen, and log back in.

    We tried installing the app on a new device - and it picked up the original name - not the new name that is showing in the car.

    Tried changing the name again in the car - and this time it updated in the app.

    Must be cosmic rays...
