    iTunes has a new version of the Tesla app. Version 2.7.2 was posted today (26 FEB).

    Still ignores almost all of the most frequent and long standing complaints about the app. I get more and more annoyed every time they release an update which ignores what we want and adds things no one asked for.

    Tesla Motors cares about as much about improving usability as they care about the weather on Mars (wait... Elon probably cares MORE about the weather on Mars). All that drives the, is improving autopilot and getting the Gigafactory chugging, even as other car companies catch up on autopilot and surpass tesla on user interface safety and usability -- I just went shopping with my wife for a Volvo yesterday, and the things they are doing in both those respects is incredible for an "established" car company.

    The APIs indicate Tesla's building in functionality to adjust the charge amperage. Wonder when we get to see that.

    Application Programming Interface ... it is a term of art for programming, I think. Tend to take it for granted that everybody knows.

    Seems like a new calendar bug introduced. My daily says "no events" yet there are plenty of things on the calendar.

    FWIW I got the iOS Tesla app v2.7.2 update on Feb 26, and the calendar in my car still displays correct events proper each day, including this morning after the car received the 7.1 (2.12.126) software update.

    I'm also not encountering any calendar issues since updating my firmware, using iOS 9.2.1 on an iPhone 6. Be sure you do a quick search... There are some threads from the past couple of months with others encountering problems like you describe. Good luck!

    When that happens for me I can usually "force" an update by first making sure the calendar on my iPhone is current and then opening the Tesla app on the phone and connecting with the car.

    Doing that usually moves data from the phone's calendar to the car's calendar right away.

    Surfdoc, have you tried to close the tesla app then reopen it?, (double clicking the home button and swiping up the app)

    My calendar didn't update for 2 days, till I tried that...

    Just installed 2.7.2 for the first time on my iPhone 6S.
    Works perfectly. It synced my calendar from my iPhone to the S for the first time in about 1 minute.
    After that is seems to stay synced.

    I have been using it with success to pre heat the interior and to initiate car charging in the am for preconditioning.

    I wish there was a way for the calendar to initiate these events for me automatically.

    For automation check out EVmote. I use it and its IFTT integration to automate events based on my calendar and schedule. (IFTT=If This Then That)

    Peace,

    Why and how can I trust giving my password to these web based services? I think it is dangerous information.

    I agree. I'm digging into this thread: EVmote App which is the primary EVmote thread referenced on their website.

    Check out THIS POST in that thread and read forward from there for description.

    [Off topic] Are iOS apps still connected with iTunes?

    [Off topic Reply ;)] They do not have to be. Apps an be downloaded/updated directly to iPhone/iPad from the App Store -OR- via Mac/PC that has iTunes installed, then back to the iPhone/iPad via hardwire or WiFi. Sorta whatever way suits your fancy for the past few years, including mix-and-match of the variations.

    Non-jail broken iOS apps are downloaded either in iTunes on a computer or the Apps app on an iPhone.
