Tip of the Week

Check your settings after installing an update.

They apparently added a checkbox to turn off the chime when auto-opening or auto-closing the garage door. And it defaulted to off. I never missed it until Anson emailed and told me to check it. Boom! Or DING! Now it works like it used to!

TeslaBot allows you to send a message on Facebook and it will pass the commands on to your car. Very convenient for controlling your car from a browser. Just send a FB message to the bot and it does what you ask. 

WARNING: using the bot requires giving your Tesla login info to the bot. If they are bad guys they can control your car. Use at your own risk.

Tip Of The Week

Did you know you can get a Slacker Premium account and link it to your Tesla? While arguably the worst of all the available streaming services, it IS the one in your dash. Tesla pays for the $3.99 Plus membership that allows you to have unlimited skips commercial-free and listen to most songs on-demand. But Premium allows you to listen to full albums and build your own playlists, instead of the Pandora-like stations Slacker builds for you. 

After you upgrade at slacker.com/upgrade press STREAMING on your entertainment screen and scroll down to the bottom where there is a button to log in with your own account. 

Same deal with TuneIn. For $7.99 a month you can add audiobooks plus MLB and NFL play-by-play and commercial-free music. I don't use TuneIn for music. I mainly use it to listen to radio stations in other cities. Which is included in the free tier. But if you're a sports fan or like audiobooks you may want to check it out.
