I heard on Tesla Time News with Zac and Jesse that there is going to be a Dog Mode. Can you tell me if it will be in the update that I am waiting for? I have 2018.5 at the moment.
Depends, what update are you waiting for?
BTW, the “Dog Mode” is merely a screen saver with a message telling onlookers that the interior temp is “X”. Though Tesla did come up with a clever way to say it, like “my owners will be back shortly and I am fine, the interior temp is “x” “
Unknown person peeks in window, loud barking noise scares them away. Much like Cujo.
there already is limited dog mode as mentioned. after parking go to climate b4 exiting.. there is a selection to keep climate on.. same as dog mode will do except it will show current temp/message on screen.
Dog mode would be better if it allowed you to specify a temperature range, for example 60-75 degrees. Heat comes on at 59, AC comes on at 76. Otherwise neither is on, resulting in less battery drain.
