I see that on the phone app as well as an “unlock” button there is a “start” button. Does this mean that I could remotely unlock and start my car so someone else can drive it when I’m nowhere near it?

Yep. There are a couple of Bjørn Nyland YouTube videos, where he’s helped people by charging their car for them. They unlock and start it from abroad and he drives it to a charger

yes......Back in July I did not do that but I was in Scotland on vacation in my other car and had left my prescription sunglasses in the Model S at home in England..My neighbour was kind enough to stand by the car as I unlocked it ,got my glasses and posted them to me.

I heard the car unlock instantly as I hit the button.
