I am a happy and satisfied P85+ owner in Norway. I am parking outside my house because I do not have a garage. It’s getting colder these days and I am trying to figure out how to enter a 'warm wonder with a view' in the morning. I have the Tesla iOS App and do turn on the climate system remotely before showering & brewing the coffee in the morning. I have all options like tech- & cold weather package and would like to remotely and pre set times for having a heated and defrosted car in the morning, plugged in- or not.
I like to see a new Tesla-OS and an iOS/App updates offering this:
- Timer optional settings for starting climate system/battery heating
- Timer settings & Remote control for starting defrosting climate front window
- Timer settings & Remote control for starting defrosting back window & mirrors
- Timer settings & Remote control for starting seat heating
The timer setting could have a weekdays and weekend setting too. More suggestions?
Is there any work around to heat the car in the morning without risking someone stealing the car by leaving the key in the car to avoid it to turn off? Can I leave the door open to keep the climate running? That is a contradiction except a bit of heat for happy birds I guess. I could leave a heavy stone in the driver’s seat, fooling the car to believe I am sitting there patiently…:-) . If anyone has defrosting & warming suggestions please let me know.
I have to read the manual a bit more to see if there is something I misunderstood about the Tesla user interface. If not this should be easy for Tesla to program. Please hurry up Tesla staff – I am freezing… :-)
