A search of TMC and Model 3 Owners Club has shown no way to schedule preconditioning. Ford calls it "Go Times" on their app for Focus Electric, CMax and Fusion Energi. On the app or the car's main screen an owner can set a 7 day calendar of times for the car to be preconditioned. 2 times can be set per day. Temperatures are adjustable as are other options. I set a go time for when I leave home in the morning and afternoon. The Fusion Energi needs to be plugged in for effective preconditioning. It sets much like a programmable home thermostat. After 4 years of plug-in ownership. I am hooked on a comfortable car with maximum range at all times! It looks like Tesla has only manual preconditioning. Am I missing something? Auto preconditioning does not seem to do the same thing. This is a simple feature. I can't believe it is not available on a Tesla. Thoughts?
