- Locate your vehicle with directions or track its movement
- Send an address from your favorite apps to start navigation in your car
- Allow your passengers to quickly control media
- Flash lights or honk the horn to find your vehicle when parked
- Vent or close the panoramic roof
- Summon your vehicle out of your garage or a tight parking space (for vehicles with Autopilot)
- Update your vehicle software from wherever you are
- Engage with Powerwall: monitor how much energy is stored from solar, used by your home, or exported to the grid
- Download your solar production and battery usage data

Note: Powerwall features in this app require Powerwall 2

In recent months, the app has gotten much worse at waking the car up and allowing me to remotely access functions. Even when the car's connected to wifi or a strong cellular signal, the app often never connects to the car. Also, the 'phone as key' function will also fail when I am at the vehicle. Restarting the phone or toggling Airplane Mode off-on-off usually fixes the problem, but is very inconvenient. This is disappointing because these are new problems in the last 3 years

One of the recent updates broke the car tracking capability. Before the upgrade, one could keep track of the location of the car as it was moving - the symbol for the car would be centered in the screen, while the map underneath would move. This is not there any more: it is now the symbol for the car that keeps moving, whereas the map stays static - which of course implies that one has to move the map by hand, in order to keep track of the car. Hopefully this is just a snafu that Tesla will fix soon; my fear is, however, that some GUI nitwit at Tesla has decided that this is better.

The location map display is the worst I've ever seen in 4.8 1025. The default zoom is way too large. If you zoom in to actually see where the car is it zooms out again in about 6 seconds making it useless. The button to center the display on the car no longer moves the map with the car so you can't follow the car. The map is still in dark mode all the the time and continues to be unreadable by adults.
