3.3.6 just dropped.

Aside from the nicer looking screen that advises you to toggle airplane mode if you're having problems with the phone key (it was just a pop-up before) I don't know what changed...

Edit: the above info screen also has a "forget this vehicle" button which is also new, I think.

I just picked up new model 3 last Saturday. The car has been great except for glove box not working (Tesla has ordered new glove box) and the phone as key is vary unreliable. I have a pixel 2XL phone. The car only reconies the phone about 50% of the time. It is vary frustrating when the car will not open and I have t wait for the AP to wake up and then click on the lock open or climate control for the AP to wake up and unlock the car. It would be nice if Tesla would come out with a real key Fab like most new cars have now.

I think a Pixel 2XL should work as a reliable key. It's probably just a matter of adjusting the settings on your phone so Bluetooth doesn't go to sleep. Once that works you won't want a pesky key fob that only the dealer can configure for your car.

Tesla App 3.4.1 is now available for Android as well. This version adds Speed Limit Mode for cars on firmware version 2018.24 or later.
  • Limit vehicle speed and acceleration with Speed Limit Mode. Maximum vehicle speed can be set between 50-90 mph (80-145 km/h).
  • NOTE: Requires vehicle software version 2018.24 or above.
Related note: There have also been reports that Firmware 2018.24 enables Summon for EAP-enabled Model 3s, which you can now do via the Tesla app! (Hat tip to @mlmowery!)

Unsurprisingly, Tesla App 3.4.1 is now available for Android as well. This version adds Speed Limit Mode for cars on firmware version 2018.24 or later.

There have also been reports that firmware 2018.24 enables Summon for EAP-enabled Model 3s. So, while the app technically already has the ability to Summon Model S/X, the ability to summon Model 3 should become available as well once firmware 2018.24 is installed on the car.

If someone with 2018.24 and 3.4.1 could kindly confirm that they can, indeed, Summon their Model 3 from the app (seeing as how Model 3 doesn't have a keyfob), we can finally put this baby to rest!
I can confirm that 2018.24 does indeed enable the Summons feature on the app!

Nice, hopefully I'll get this update soon (2018.24.) Would be really useful this weekend in the tight parking garage at the hotel I'm staying at...

Wasnt sure if someone's talked about this before, but while driving the car, if you open the app, the control buttons for frunk and trunk are active. Obviously I didnt press them, but isnt that a safety hazard? Atleast thats the case on my app 3.4.1

You should test it out.

I'll take a virtual "hit" for the team and speculate the trunk and frunk won't open unless it's in Park. So no safety hazard. I can't verify this as I'm away from the car but I'm 99.9238% sure.
Okay, had to test out your theory. Sorry but you are 100% incorrect. The app will open the trunk and funk in Drive and Reverse, the key is the car must be stopped. Any movement and it does not work.

OK, that makes sense. It always bugged me that the trunk of my Mazda will not open when in gear, even when stopped!

Doesn't 2018.24 also let you tap the wireless icon and use WiFi for updates?

So I am out off town, and since I left 2 days ago, my app cannot connect to the car. Just get the spinning wheel with "walking up", but it never connects. Anybody had that issue?

I had a similar issue when I was out of town for 2 weeks. After about a week the car would not wake up and I even called Tesla. They said they would attempt to wake it up but didn't seem like anything more that what I was doing with the app. No response from that but after another day or so it came back online. Does your car have good LTE signal where it is parked? Mine was in my garage and usually works but the signal strength is not great. In the end I assumed that was the issue.
