    Hi Everyone - As I'm continuing to learn about my new S100D, I stumbled across VisibleTesla. I set up the app and it seems to have the controls active, similar to what the RemoteS App can do.

    However, in the "Overview" tab, it indicates that I have a 2012 70D with a body colored roof and no wheels (the image of the car literally shows it without wheels on it). It is correct though with the color, premium package, and air suspension. It thinks I don't have parking sensors (which obviously I do) based on the MY2017.

    Any ideas why this would be? When I go into Preferences under the Overrides sub-menu, under Model, 100D isn't even an option (assuming the developer stopped updating the software?

    Do I have some kind of Frankenstein car?

    Some time back, the data returned by the Tesla API changed a bit. Wondering if that project is active and updated? It might be reading some incorrect data elements...

    Support for Visible Tesla was discontinued a few years ago. The program doesn't know what a 100D is. Someone else made a change to it a couple of years ago and it knows about my 90D if I force it in the override screen.

    My (sold) 2014 S60 without supercharging enabled showed up in Visible Tesla as a P85+. It also said "yes" next to "Supercharging".

    Shame. It's a great app!
    The car doesn't have climate scheduling (like it should). That's what I used it for.

    And don't tell me it has the learning thing for that, it don't work, and I don't want it to. I want to set the schedule. from the dash, or phone or web app.
