Well we have a thread dedicated to logging car software updates over time, so we might as well pin a one stop shop to track the app over time.

With this thread we will focus on iOS, so if someone else wants to volunteer to spin up a similar thread for Android please do.

Please reply into the thread with thoughts, comments, updates, and more; and I will update this original post as updates come out.

Funny you should suggest this, I was just about to start a thread to discuss issues/experiences specific to Android app users (mostly concerning the performance of phone-as-key, since it is allegedly less reliable than with iOS). But I like this idea better... it's much more comprehensive and structured. :)

Anyway... done!

Now updating to 4.0...

“This release contains minor fixes and improvements.”

That seems odd with the move to 4.0.

EDIT - I’m tired lol. 4.0 is the star rating, version is 3.3.4 :confused:

Is there a way to share access to the app without compromising private data? I rented a TM3 the other day and was only given the card key, which is adequate for access... but the remote features via the app are where the car really shines... pre-conditioning the car, [eventually] summon, etc.

no. You need to either have the owner's login credentials or the owner needs to have Tesla add your tesla account information to your login information. neither really an option for a rental.

Does Tesla limit the number of accounts that can be linked to a car? Can I create a third "guest" account (Me, Wife, and Guest) that I can give my brother/friend access to when they borrow the car?

v3.3.5 for iOS is out. It only appears to add troubleshooting help for Phone Key issues ("turn off bluetooth and then turn it back on").

Is there any way to change the Frunk open button on splash screen to Trunk? I just don't find the Frunk useful enough to
have that as the main button.
Unfortunately no you can’t customize, but remember the trunk can be released by the grab handle with your (phone) proximity where as the frunk can only be released via “button”.

Why does the app take FOREVER to actually open when you open it? I mean it opens but then “updates” and that process takes anywhere from 15 seconds to a minute... today in fact mine won’t stop trying to update but it never does. Grr....

That’s really the car not the app. Once the car hits that deep sleep it tends to take a while.

3.4.0 is out but only appears to add functionality for Powerwall with time-based controls for those with variable energy rates.

Have the new app, but don't see anything new revealing itself. Since the app knows what version of SW is on the car do you think it can configure and add config items in the app on the fly based on car SW version?
