    Hello,

    Sometimes I prefer to turn off remote access to hide my current car location from other users using the Tesla linked to the car.

    What happens to all the features once remote access is turned off?

    Will I still be able to use navigation map and music streaming in car?

    On other people's app link to my car, will it show the very last location the car was connected to remote access (i.e. location where I turned off remote access)?

    Thank you for all the tips.

    what do you mean by disabling remote access, where is this a setting? also, why is your Tesla account logged in to so many other people's devices? post seems sketch at best.

    Some would assume his wife is logged in and he is visiting a girl friend ...

    Of course he should also worry about his cell phone which always tracks and EZpass or license plate tolls or speed cameras or ....

    Everything within the car works fine, just no remote access. I believe the remote app will either say "disabled" or just "unable to connect". Only reason I know is service used to do this when checking in a car, but sometimes forgot to re-enable.

    It's only 1 min to try.
