    The portal API was deprecated with release of the OAuth API. The portal was shutdown a few months ago explaining why these functions no longer work.

    Ahh, thanks for that info... makes sense with what I'm seeing. So I guess Tesla Companion is fully done now..... :(

    I use Tesla Companion on WP8.1 all the time. My car is buried in a garage so I can't test right now but it was working yesterday.

    Hi again, it has been working since about Feb 2016 consistently. Multiple times a day I use Tesla Companion on my HP Elite X3 Windows 10 Mobile phone and the main functions work fine. On my Windows 10 desktop computer I have Tesla Connect working (I can't get Tesla Companion to work for some reason).

    So not sure if the old API is fully gone or not.... but these apps are working!

    Not to derail this thread, but lately I have been using Tesla Control Centre more than the Tesla Companion app. It's missing calendar support, and Summon support is UK only for now according to the app listing (not that I can do that with my classic S85). Other than those two, this app is pretty good.
