Now that "summon" is being rolled out, what are the recommendations for distance and clearance?
Why would one increase/reduce the distance? And what would best work in terms of clearance?

This will all depend on personal preferences and situations. How tight is the space you want to park in and what is your comfort level with the car driving itself close to other objects. I have the distance set at the max of 40 feet and the clearance set at the minimum of 8 inches. I also have the side clearance set to "Tight". So, I guess you can say I trust the car as much as possible and watch it to make sure.

To increase/reduce the distance it's all controlled on the screen in settings, not from the app.

Would love to be able to control the "tightness" from the app, in case someone parks really close to you - closer than you've anticipated someone's jerkiness :)
