I've been waiting for the software update that includes Summon and on 07/23 I took my car into the body shop to have work done (long story short I was rear ended) and of course, I get a notification of a software update on that same day! Fast forward to today and I got to pick up my car and there is NO update notification showing! Does the update offer go away if you wait too long? How do I bring it back? Am I hosed? Help!!!!

There was a release a couple of weeks back that downloaded and then got pulled. A few people reported this, got the download/release notice, but then had nothing to install. Bugs were found I guess and then they moved on to the next release. Likely that was the release you saw download. You should have another one soon. What version are you on? 26.3 has rolled to 59 cars today and was already on close to 50. Seems to be the one that is finally rolling out wider then the others.

I wish there was a way to have home link open the garage door on summon but not close it. Is there a setting to do this or am I missing something?

Homelink is just a toggle. Like pushing a momentary switch. There is ‘open’ signal vs ‘close’ signal. When you push your garage door remote button, it just says ‘do your thing’ and the garage door opener itself knows to open or close. I think it’s probably time for a more intelligent homelink standard to provide more granular functions.

Sure I get that but I just want it to not push the button at the end of its summon sequence. I want it to open the door drive out of the garage but not close it,

You. Igor change the distance for close to a longer range. I have mine set so it only auto closes when the car is all the way on the street vs opening when in the driveway. Still waiting on 21.9 but have mobile service coming out tomorrow so maybe they can push the update

Hmmm....that seems like a good idea however the distance setting is only for the opening of the garage door. There is no setting for closing distance. That being said I have it set to 70 feet which is farther than the 25 feet that summon is set to. Not sure if there is another setting you are referring to.
