My M3 has been in my local service center in San Diego for a week, awaiting delivery of a new drive unit from Fremont (another story...). Not surprisingly, for the past week, my phone app has been unable to connect to the car, showing it as "offline".
SC told me this morning that the part came in - car should be ready tomorrow. Sure enough, tonight the car reappeared in my phone app with a "software update available" notice. I can see all the details in the app as usual, and it shows "updated just now" - except for the very strange fact that the "location" is showing my home address! I went out and looked! - definitely not here. On the location map (phone app) I can refresh car location and it shows my house and says "just now".
I can imagine that the car may be inside a building with poor GPS access, but it is interesting that the app thinks the location is now.
Just thought I'd share - unusual events give insight into the hidden working of Tesla's tech...
Can't wait to return my Model S loaner at get my M3 back!
