Setting Home Location
Tesla M3 RWD +. I set Sentry Alert while away on a 6 day holiday, to find that on return I had lost 146 miles of capacity. This is, apparently, to be expected from other posts to the Tesla forum. However, as the car was in my home drive all the time, it did did not recognise that it was at my Home location.
I investigated further. In the UK, I can only set my home location as a Post Code (my house does not have a number - just a name). The epicentre of the post code is 300 ft from my car, but according to the manual, Sentry Alert will only recognise Home as a location within 30 ft.
OK, so the advice is to drop a pin on the map. Well that did not work, as it identified a property at the far end of my garden, in a completely different road. Many attempts later I gave up.
What is needed is a button to record ‘Save this Location’, so that the exact GPS position is recorded, and that can be renamed to Home (or work or whatever). Alternatively, Google maps can return a precision Lat and Long, which can then be entered. As it stands, I cannot set my Home position accurately enough for Sentry Alert to recognise.
Please, Tesla, add a feature to ‘remember this location’ as a single button click.
If it already has this capability, please tell me how to find it.
