I’ve noticed that’s not the case. The phone key has never been 100% reliable. It’s software related rather than signal reception. It was especially bad after 5.15. Now I’m on 8.5 and it’s even worse, at least for me. Today I successfully unlocked my car just once (when I went out for lunch), out of 3 times. I have an iPhone XR. I can also confirm that everywhere I park has a good cellular reception. I guess that’s something we’ll have to live with.First, it takes some time to wake up when in deep sleep
But mostly it's the cellular connection that it has.
My Sammie S7E sucks and unlocking the car and keeping connection. I get 30 feet away and I have often lost connection.My wife's Samsung S9 wakes up the car much faster than my S5.
Faster processor, better Bluetooth?
Yes. However, I will now train myself to use the key card as the primary, and stop counting on the app. I feel foolish standing beside the car waving the phone, loading, reloading the app, on/off airplane mode - its very inconsistent. I went all last week with it working well, to this week not - ugh.
I will say I noticed my wife's Bluetooth works a heck of a lot more consistent than my pixel 2 xl .I have an IPhone X. My car has never once failed to unlock instantly as I walk up to the door using my IPhone to unlock. Weird. I wonder how much of the problem is on the car side versus the phone side.
My situation is exactly like yours OCR. iPhone X. I open the Tesla app on my phone to wake my car on the way to the garage and it has worked 100% of the time. It also works if I don’t open the app and just approach my car.I have an IPhone X. My car has never once failed to unlock instantly as I walk up to the door using my IPhone to unlock. Weird. I wonder how much of the problem is on the car side versus the phone side.
Mine wouldn't wake up on either my wife's or my iPhone. I moved next to the car and it still didn't. I entered the car and the car's panel showed a slash through the signal strength wifi icon. After 5 ot 10 seconds it change to 3 of 4 radial arcs and my phone updated. It looks to me like the Tesla (brand new model 3) software is asleep.it doesn't wake up quickly every time I want it to.
How can I make it wake up like a good Doberman every time?
