    I don't see supercharger info on my iPhone. I think I'm up to date (3.8.0). Where is it supposed to show up? Perhaps I need to be running V9 in my car? Though that would be strange.

    You need at least 2018.46.2 I believe.

    So all my Model 3 issues with the telemetry streaming API, it turns out it's any newer Model with the issue. I think newer vehicles have stopped supporting it altogether?? That's a scary and annoying thought... If anyone knows anything or hears something please let us know.

    For reference, this post: Vendor - Dashboard for Tesla - the better app for your Tesla

    Yes, I noticed it too with Models S and X.
    Seems to be all 2018 models and possibly late 2017.

    Yes, the streaming API is disabled for 2018 cars.
    Also, the wake up time for the cars has increased significantly (~30 sec). Presumably Tesla has done this to decrease phantom drain, but based on my measurement, it has had virtually no effect on phantom drain; just made it frustrating to use the app.

    I've had my Model S on always on for 2 years and never noticed any range depletion.

    Same here, my 2016 Model S has negligible phantom drain if any, always connected on and energy saver off the whole time.

    Man this really sucks, if no streaming API replacement is provided then newer cars are arguably less valuable than older ones?

    Well it depends on how you value the car. I would value the extra performance, MCU2 and AP2 that a 2018 75D has over a 2016 75D. But that's just me.

    I traded my June 2016 Model S 90D for an October 2018 Model S 100D on December 30 to take advantage of the $7500 tax credit one more time.

    I used the streaming API to capture data from just over 100 miles on the odometer to the nearly 40k when I turned it in, and really liked having it available for some of my other automations. I came across this post and the bug report on on the tesla-api github today while troubleshooting why my new car wasn't logging or automating correctly. I am disappointed to have lost the streaming API (and I agree the app feels slower to connect sometimes, but I don't use it as often, and it hasn't really bothered me yet).

    I just finished replacing the important parts of my automation setup with data from polling the drive_state API, and I think it will be fine. I'll play with increasing the polling frequency when the car is moving or doing something interesting, and look forward to the streaming API working again one day, but I'll still take AP2 and the other perks of the new car.

    Based on my experience on how my 2016 car, its condition, and its features/options were valued by Tesla, CarMax, Carvana, and Vroom, I think it's safe to say this has no impact on the overall value of the car.

    On the iPhone app, the waking up UI that shows when you connect to a "very dormant" vehicle appears to wait for a specific response and/or interval.

    Has anybody looked at this recently to see exactly what it's checking?

    I've noticed (revisiting my old logger) that sometimes the wake_up command returns a state of asleep (and doesn't actually trigger the desired waking up).

    Perhaps I'm doing it wrong.

    /wake_up is the only such endpoint.
    The trick is to just keep trying.

    Does the `homelink_nearby` field still work. It returns `false` for me even though the car is in the garage (configured homelink.
    I have configured two homelinks (one for the gate and one for the garage door). What is the meaning of this field if there are more than one homelink configured?
