    Thanks for the reply.
    What the heck am I doing wrong? Using the iPad, I can't even find it in the App store.
    With the PC iTunes, I can load the Tesla Model S app, but it will not transfer to the iPad and it says it is for iPhone and iPod touch.

    iPad running on 5.1

    If you don't have a vehicle linked to your account (like me), you can't get past the login screen, so the app is not of much use. Since they've yet to officially ship any Model S to Europe, there's not much of a case to make the app available outside of the US & Canada, IMO. As for those few that purchased a Model S in the US/Canada & shipped it to Europe, doesn't that void the warranty?

    Once cars officially start shipping to Europe, I'm sure the app won't be far behind, if not already available.

    Thanks for a little consolation. Isn't making the wait much easier.

    It's only good for the IPHONE. It's not compatible with the IPAD.

    When you search you must select the 'iPhone' tab on the search screen, it defaults to the 'iPad' tab and it won't show up there.

    Not true, works fine on the iPad.

    The app says the interior temp of my car is 76 degrees. It's been sitting outside in 45 degree weather for 6.5 hours with climate control off...don't think that function is working!

    That’s not accurate. When searching the store there are two options: look for iPad aware applications, or look for iPhone applications. There should be an option at the top of your search results to show iPhone apps, which will install and run just fine on the iPad – they just won’t take advantage of the additional screen real estate available. I installed the Tesla Model S app on my 3rd generation iPad this morning before I installed it on my iPhone, and it works just fine.

    My inside temp is pretty close. Perhaps yours is in the sun, with black interior? Might be right.

    If you have a thermometer go outside and sit in the car and see what it reads. It seems to work but maybe the app didn't update and is showing old data?

    This is what the screen looks like on the iPad, note the tab for iPhone and iPad at the top.

    Also works fine on my 1st gen iPad running iOS 5.1.1. In the App Store app, I just searched for "Telsa Model S" (no quotation marks) and it showed up under the heading "iPhone apps". It installed just fine, and works (modulo having no vehicles linked to my account).

    You're welcome. As Tom Petty said, "The waiting is the hardest part." I'm anxiously awaiting my delivery button/questionnaire and more granular delivery window. Getting the app was nice, but not really that useful … yet.

    Is it in direct sunlight? Could be the internal temperature probe is in the sun?

    I bought 3 Model S's from Tesla (long story). I wonder what happens when you have 4...

    It's sunny to partly cloudy outside, but the car is facing north. This morning, in my garage, it said it was 71 degrees on the app. I keep my garage heated to about 55-60 degrees.

    I just loaded the iPhone app on the iPad. Works. It's not a native iPad add though

    Not true. I have it running on my iPad mini. Just not full screen. (Unless I press the 2x button)

    Car is outside. Interior cabin says 7 degrees c. I started the cabin heat and setting was at 24 degrees c. I can increase the temperature using the up arrow but I cannot decrease it with the down arrow. Anyone else see this?
