    Did the guys at Tesla thought about going outdoors with no tech at all ?
    Like for instance going surfing and leaving the Phone inside the car ?
    Elon mentioned a 7 feet surfboard will fit inside the car, just hope he did'nt forget about coming back in from the surf....
    ;-)

    They probably have, but even if they haven't, just turn off your phone's Bluetooth, and take the key card with you.

    You shouldn’t have a problem leaving your phone in the car and taking the keycard.

    Some testing will have to happen, but if you leave the phone in the car and swipe the card at the pillar the car should lock. If it doesn’t because of the phone proximity you could always turn off Bluetooth in that situation as a failsafe or just turn off the phone completely.

    My problem is taking the card to the water...
    Do you have any evidence that the card is waterproof ?
    Even being waterproof is a bit bulky to put on the wetsuit,,,,

    I would guess it’s waterproof. Assuming it’s not though (to be safe), I have a waterproof pouch for credit cards, cash, etc. I’d throw it in there, wrap it around my neck, and inside my wetsuit.

    The funny thing about a Tesla is that there really isn’t anyway to clip that to :)

    It’s the same as a flexible credit card.... I can’t imagine that would even be noticeable

    Certainly less noticeable than a key fob (à la Model S/X) bulging from underneath a wetsuit. ;) Probably more waterproof than a key fob too!
