Accept a loaner car in the Tesla mobile app during warranty repairs

As a way of expediting service and improving the experience, the Tesla app now lets you, in some cases, accept the loaner car that you will get (if you are lucky to get one) when you bring in your car for service under warranty.

Upcoming Tesla feature: Free access to public hotspots from, AT&T, Comcast, Orange, and more

Twitter user Analytic_ETH has been able to enable this feature, which now is in the firmware but disabled. Once enabled, you can just select the relevant network and the car will connect.

FSD Beta v10.12 will include many improvements

Elon mentioned complex left turns and heavy traffic. I, personally, wish that it is more assertive at stop signs, stops trying to go around vehicles that it shouldn’t, and becomes a bit smoother.

A new Tesla App indicates that Tesla is opening an API end-point that will gather this data without the need to wake up your vehicle.

Not that long ago, Tesla introduced auto-heated seats on the mobile app. Now, for folks with cooled seats (new Model S and X), you can use the same functionality to set them to auto cool.

Hardware updates

Tesla confirms the cutoff date for discontinuing the Mobile Connector

If you ordered your Tesla after April 17th 2022, don’t expect it to come with the Mobile Connector. If you order it before, I would recommend that you still check if your car comes with it.
