I just tried the parking as well with success.
Homelink Auto-Close didn't work. But Auto-Open did. So my garage door stayed open until I came home and the Auto Open actually started closing. I wonder why that happened?
There is a post in another thread that says that the Homelink signal from the Tesla is very directional. I have a circular driveway so my car is usually pointing away from the garage when the close command should trigger so that may be causing an issue as well.I had the same experience the first time I tries it, but it worked perfectly today. Maybe there's a glitch that makes it not work right after a reboot.
It is already available in the US, so I don't know how you defined "anywhere"
I'm not sure it has much to do with our country. It appears it's not available anywhere other than the USA. If it was something Canada specific you'd expect there to be at least one place other than the USA that got it...Anybody know why it is not available in our liberal country?
Yes but to what degree? In owner's driveways? I doubt it will ever be permitted in parking lots where the car could hit someone. Would you really trust it to drive from the far end of the parking lot to where you are at the entrance? I do not know the situation in the States and maybe it is permitted to drive in a public space, but what if it really did hit someone on the way? A small child perhaps that the sensor missed? A small animal? What would you do? Your insurance would hit the roof?
Just imagine the outrage from the family of the person hit.
Yes, perhaps Tesla would be held accountable, but more importantly, so would you.
Personally, I think it would be very foolish and selfish to use this feature.
Just my two cents worth and I'm not trying to knock the system. I just don't think the summon feature is ready for prime time.
I'm sure it will eventually show up in Canada and elsewhere (unless it's deemed illegal), but given that there are laws that need to be checked and interpreted, I can see how they'd want to spend time figuring out those laws, country/region by region. In other words, I'd want to get an explicit confirmation it's legal, maybe even with each provincial authority...
