Come to me!

Another recent addition to Tesla’s mobile app is the «Come to me» button on the home screen of the app, right below the car. My favorite part of the feature is the visualization of what the car actually sees around it.

First look at smart summon on 2019.20

Elon mentioned a few days ago that there were several code branches with improvements in Smart Summon (the feature formerly known as Enhanced Summon) and now they have unified all of them and released it under version 2019.20. Folks in the Early Access Program are the first ones who got access to it. The Twitter user nathpunee installed the new version and shared a few videos for all of us to see it in action.

Tesla owners can edit maps to improve Smart Summon routes

If you have been a subscriber for some time you might remember when we talked about Tesla using Open Street Map for information like speed limits. Well, it turns out that they also use Open Street Map to calculate the best route when using Smart Summon, but what’s more interesting is that in the case of Smart Summon they pull that information in real-time, not like in the maps where you need to download a new version to get the new speed limits, etc.
