Hi guys, summon feature in uk is pathetically close to the car, like within touching distance!

many one know any workarounds to extend the distance? I’ve seen a few YouTube videos with workarounds using a second phone, but I can’t get them to work so suspect may be fakes?

many advice? I just want to be able to summon back/forwards from 20ft away, nothing crazy!

Ps. Appreciate there’s regulations around this sort of thing etc.

The second phone trick worked when it first came out but doesn’t anymore.

It’s really is just a wait on the regulations thing. Or sit in the passenger seat and do it from there to at least try it out o_O

Yup, nothing we can do but wait.

The second phone trick, whilst being terribly risky from a security point of view, worked before but was fixed by Tesla some time ago.

If you’ve watched any videos of Summon in the States it’s ridiculous how much better it is. The car goes at like 10x the speed for some distance.
