I would not think it would have much of an effect on how the car responds to commands sent via the app. I was on the East coast and my car was in AZ. When you get home, close your garage and see how many bars of LTE signal you have. Mine gets 1 or 2 bars, not sure if 1 bar is enough to wake up the car reliably all the time.
Weird, I tried it about 30 minutes ago when I saw your post, and I could still access the loot box at that time, even if I logged out and logged back into the app. But now if I do the same, I get the familiar "no products linked to your account" message on the login screen.
The whole app continues to be super laggy and glitchy in general, though, so who knows what's happening... Wouldn't be shocked to see another build pushed out early next week.
Is anybody else having difficulty logging into the app? I use to be able to view videos as I don't have my car yet but now it just endlessly loads and never signs in. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
The number flag icon (app icon badge) can be turned off for the Tesla app if you want.
Just swipe down on the notification bar, slowly swipe the Tesla app notification to the left until you see the gear icon, then tap the gear icon.
Turn off the 'app icon badges' to get rid of the '1' over the tesla app icon.
yep, absolutely hate that they don't give you the option in settings to select this notification. it is forced and permanent, the only option if you want rid of it is to go into android notification settings or to long press on the tesla notification and prevent it. It seems like it will only stop these key notifications when I turned it off. need to charge to confirm that i'll still get other wanted notifications like charging being done or updates.
I got the app update as well today. Since I'm in my house & close enough to my car my notification doesn't say disconnected, instead it says "connected" & below that gives me 3 quick touch options I can press:
I love this feature - so I can access these without having to open the app each time & wait for it to "wake up" - very convenient when I'm in a hurry to my car & don't want to stand there waiting for the app to wake up the car.
