    It still doesn’t let me log in, but good to know that I could log in if I actually had my M3.

    I wonder what current employee Model 3 owners have been doing up until today? Only using the keycard?

    This is why I randomly log in with my dad's credentials and honk the horn on his S :)

    That was my first thought and assumption as well.

    Maybe, but it’s possible to side load apps on iOS without the App Store. I would guess they just sent a link to owners that installed a version of the Tesla app that supports M3.

    When you see cars being sold to family of employees I think it starts to move beyond the potential of side loading apps.

    Then again I could be wrong. You could call these first cars the beta cars and thus the side loaded app would be part of the beta test as well.

    It's very easy to manage and distribute beta apps in the apple app store, no doubt employees have been testing the functionality for a while (along with all the beta software in the car) and will continue to test future versions of the app with capabilities the rest of us don't see

    Have someone tested the “Remote S for Tesla” app with the Model 3? The Apple Watch is maybe a good replacement for the KeyFob.

    I haven’t tested it with my dad’s car. My Apple Watch sits on my nightstand and I only use it as an iPod when I run. I really don’t like it as an everyday device, but if it does something awesome with my car I’m game to try it. That said what could be easier than doing nothing and simply have my phone in my pocket?

    Is there any new information about if the Apple Watch App works with Model 3?

    It won't work because the Model 3 keycard is RFID, not NFC (which is what the watch has). Unless Tesla opens the Bluetooth API to something other than a phone then you'll just have to have your phone on you to control the car

    If I understood the description of Remote S correctly, the app uses the same interface as the Tesla app. It uses wireless lan or mobile data. You can control your Tesla from anywhere.

    from regoapps self

    That's why regoapps developed this program and it works with the S's and the X's, as you know.

    True but they may have changed some stuff with Model 3. Let's see when the car gets into the wild and devs have a chance to play with it

    some people are not comfortable giving their vehicle's login information to a 3rd party app though, and would only use the native Tesla app.

    For this very reason I will only use Tesla’s app. Besides my phone is tethered to my hand and my Apple Warch is in the drawer never used :)

    I’ve tested Remote S on the Series 3 Apple Watch and it works well. A couple of times I have had to hit a button to open the trunk or unlock the car more than once on the watch, but it eventually opened or unlocked.

    One thing interesting about Remote S is it has the summon commands in the app. Not sure if summon works in the app on the Model 3 but that would be an interesting development. See screenshot.
