Does the Model 3 include Homelink for the garage doors?
It doesn't explicitly say so, but I am hoping that it's in the premium upgrades package.
It is unclear at this time. But pretty certain it will be included with premium interior.
Yes, homelink is included in the Premium package. Confirmed by @EValuatED here.
Do we know if this is fact though? The Tesla site doesn't indicate it.

I assume these are photos of some of the help links from the configurator. Who are you talking to, and why do you say that?
I was replying to my fellow Floridian The linked page clearly states it's included on the PUP. I think that page was taken from a thread on TMC and was a screenshot of an employee configuration page, so while we can't see it, the employee placing their order did.
That's what I was looking for. I knew the source was TMC but wanted confirmation on where it originated.
Yeah, and you would think the base would have it as well, but maybe not......
That is such good information...
Not really. IMHO things like power everything, auto dimming, memory, and homelink often end up in a premium or tech package.
Can't believe I'm going to roll speculation dice but I'm willing to bet that all Homelink hardware is in every vehicle and will be included in either the Premium package or any EAP (or, at least, FSD) purchase so that summon will be unincumbered. Now, it's possible that FSD would be the cutoff since EAP summon is still intended to be monitored by the driver and, therefore, the garage could be manually opened/closed.
Yes TMC from someone screen shooting config pages online. That said, it's 2nd/3rd hand but looked legit. We'll get confirmation soon, I suspect...
I think it's standard in all models. One of the awesome features of the autopilot and full self driving is the ability to park in a garage on its own. If you pay $8k for those features but only have the standard model and HomeLink was not included it would never be able to park in a garage or open gates! That would be ridiculous!
You would still need to close the garage door. I wouldn't assume it's included. Side note, I have the LiftMaster app so that's a workaround... I could open and close the garage for my car!
"2 years of complementary data connectivity"....so how much is that later? And how do they update the car if one doesn't opt to continue to pay? Not that I mind, but that will be an issue for some. Maybe Wifi to house to continue to update software and Maps, but you will have to have a LTE connection to stream music unless you just stream through the phone I guess. Now I have 3G service on my leaf and that is gratis from Nissan. Supposedly after 5 years there may be a fee, but there is so little data that is used I cant believe it is much or if they will even charge to continue it. But a Tesla on the other hand would use oodles of data
Are Maps stored in the car or downloaded in real time over data?
Just confirmed with Nissan via Chat that there will not be a fee for telematics data ever (supposedly). The maps on the Leaf are like most car Nav systems and on an SD card. you have to pay for updated maps. But the telematics updates the charging station data, as well as sending address to the system and things like starting charging and Climate control. It also sends data to Nissan that you can view in the app like daily miles driven and efficiency and regen.
The early Nissan Leafs came with a 2G modem. AT&T have end-of-lifed their 2G network & dismantled it. Now my Leaf can't send or receive a damn thing.
