A useless comment
But is this app even going to work with the changes Tesla has been making to the servers? Most new users are on new servers, and none of the third party apps are working. I believe the thinking is that as Tesla migrates more users to the new servers, more and more people won't be able to use any of the third party apps.
Tesla Connect for Phone was updated awhile ago to use the new owner-api servers, the only login errors I've had people report are temporary outages impacting the official apps too. I've compared the network traffic between my app and the official ones, doing the exact same requests
Have you tried it?
I actually don't have a Windows phone.
If you've updated your app to use the new servers, have your users had issues with throttling? I understand from reading the Visible Tesla thread that throttling is an issue for the people testing the new Visible Tesla software that makes use of the new servers.
When I took my first test drive, I specifically asked about the Windows Phone support (back in October 2014). They said there were options to use WP with the Model S and I shouldn't worry about it. To me, this is extremely important. It might have been a deal breaker if they told me there was no official support for Windows Phone. Now, just 2 weeks before I take delivery of my Model S I learn that there are issues. And that support for WP comes from enthousiastic 3rd parties. And that they are not supportive at all.
I have a lot of trouble digesting this. Tesla wants to be seen as a forward looking company but this kind of makes that hard to believe.
I am actually disappointed.
Come on guys, lack of a mobile app is a deal breaker for a car sale... really?
I use WP, and the Companion app is so good that Tesla should just buy it from the author and offer it as an official product.
I fully agree. Companion is a great app and it is a shame that it disappeared from the Windows Store. I now use Tesla Connect but sincerely hope that Companion will be back soon. If there is anything I can help with to get this done, please let me know.
I will gladly pay for this great app if it does return
Same here, will definitely pay. My calendar is never updated anymore either.
I haven't had the opportunity to use Companion app...did it have time-based charging scheduling that we are waiting for in-car?
I use Tesla Connect and it is very useful.... @ahimberg any thoughts of adding charging schedule?
Tesla Companion is one of the best WP apps for tesla - it support multiple languages/regions, and all the functionallity one need - including live titles.
sadly to see it gone away from the WP store.
worked like a charm with my privious P85, and hope it will still work with my upcomming P85d
Not to break anyones hearth but I've switched to an iPhone and could not be happier. Tesla is just one example of where the Windows Phone app ecosystem is severely lacking and that is killing it. The OS itself is good enough though.
Tesla Companion is a great app. I'd definitely pay for it. I use Tesla Connect as well, but Companion just had a more polished look. Both great code though.
The iphone app dont have some of the features the WP companion app did. And also do not like iphone or android so that is not an option.
Just got a Windows 10 Mobile phone (Lumia 950).. Tesla Companion can't seem to connect to anything.... any one else got it to work on W10M? I hate to have to return the phone (but oddly Tesla Companion also now doesn't work on my Lumia 1520 on WP 8.1) (VisibleTesla v50 still works though on full Windows 10)
Tesla Companion is no longer working, and hasn't been for about a year. (See post below, from the developer.)
The main functions that don't require their cloud server (like turn on HVAC, start charging) have worked for me up until a few weeks ago. The cloud stuff like the calendar haven't been working for a long time. Maybe I just caught up with everyone else if it hasn't worked for anyone since his announcement.
