I do not want anything windows related on my car! Would require weekly patches :-(

Aren't there more model S's on the road tan Windows 10 phones? Seems easy enough to buy a used android or iOS phone to gain access to the tesla app.

I, too, would really like a universal W10 phone application. Such an application could run on all windows platforms, potentially greatly expanding remote access by many users to their vehicles.

Steven: I do not believe that this would entail adding anything windows-related on your car. It is only the platform running the app (e.g. smartphone) which would be running the related OS.

dortor: Many windows phone users have selected this platform to interoperate with the windows infrastructure for other reasons, which includes windows tablets, PC's and laptops. Such a comprehensive infrastructure is not currently offered by any other OS.

Negative comments about a windows app are not helpful to us who would like such an application. You don't see windows users making suggestions about the Tesla app for the other platforms. It would not serve any purpose.

There developers are going to develop towards the biggest market share which is Apple and Android. Microsoft and Blackberry are going to have to step it up to get noticed.

Have you seen the Visible Tesla desktop app? Written in java, seems it should work on your Windows phone. I know, not a native app like you want but maybe it will fill your need.
