    Won't work for me anyhow, I park in to a space that the car is saying stop for 50% of the reversing....unless of course you can control the side distance to objects to around 5-10cm's (on the close side) and around 50cm's on the side between that and my wife's car....if these adjustment can't be made I'll just need to park manually anyhow.

    Heath Walker tweet today, so yep, it's legit. As to how long we'll have to wait for the new version, well... we'll see!

    Summon feature will appear when your car has the update and is capable of summon. My app has the summon button, but if I log out and log into Dad's car (which hasn't got the update yet) then the button does not appear.

    Cool- looking forward to this: I reverse in to my garage- are there different buttons for reverse summon, as opposed to moving forward when summoned? Or is it based on detected objects ie moves away from them??
    SORRY: just read post #4 by LGGD, above: yes, different buttons...

    This is really a source of great joy to me.... I think we should crack open the champagne!

    Here's to Tesla!!!

    I am soo pleased.

    After all the negative comments that we were so quick to post when we were deprived this feature, you really have to hand it to Tesla... They seem to be battling not just at the forefront of technology but also at the forefront of legislation. From their ability to sell cars directly to US citizens to autonomous driving in Australia. So there you have it. Seems the Aussie powers that be didn't like the summons from the key fob. So Tesla rejigged it to summon from the app... And just for the Aussies! Now that is really something special. Well done Heath Walker and the whole Tesla Aussie establishment... I will sleep really well tonight!

    I wonder what "tight" clearance is in regards to the 'side clearance' in cm's? When I am reversing my car I am about 5-10cm's at most away from the passenger side of the car to the wall and about 50cm's away from my wife's car....I like it this way so we can walk between the cars....I am assuming summon simply won't work for me in this case...at best it'll park the car with around 28-30cm's clearance to both sides.

    I was hoping that we could 'train' the car with some locations (such as ones home garage) so that we could teach the car to be very close on one side.....even then I assume it wont work for me as I wish to be less than 10cm's away on one side of the car to the wall which triggers the car to continually say "stop"....

    I don't understand LGGD. Are these photos from your car? Has the feature begun being rolled out in Australia and you are one of the first to get it? Or what?

    Yes, this is my car. Yes, it is being rolled out. Yes, I am one of the first it would seem but not the only.

    video of you parking your car LGGD? :biggrin:

    Any chance if you can select 'tight' clearance and let me know how close it is willing to get to the wall on the closest side?
