Navigate on Autopilot intelligently suggests lane changes to keep you on your route, and makes adjustments so you don’t get stuck behind slow cars or trucks.

Enable Navigate on Autopilot by going to Controls > Autopilot and first enabling Autosteer. For each route where the feature is available, you have the option of enabling or disabling it by pressing the NAVIGATE ON AUTOPILOT button located in your Navigation turn list.

Once enabled for your route, Navigate on Autopilot can be activated on controlled-access roads by moving the gear lever fully down twice in quick succession. While activated, a single blue line will indicate the path ahead, keeping your car in the lane. Gray lines may appear to indicate upcoming lane changes based on your route or to suggest opportunities for you to move to a faster lane. When active, Navigate on Autopilot will also guide your car toward highway interchanges and exits based on your destination.

Adjust how aggressive Navigate on Autopilot makes lane changes to keep your car at the set speed by changing the SPEED BASED LANE CHANGES setting which can be found in Controls > Autopilot > CUSTOMIZE NAVIGATE ON AUTOPILOT.

Note: Before this feature can be enabled, camera calibration will be required, and the latest version of Navigation maps must be downloaded via WiFi.

Enhanced Summon
Model S
Model 3
Model X
AutoPilot HW 2 or Higher
Smart Summon
Available only in USA

Enhanced Summon is a parking assist feature that helps you guide your car towards you or the destination of your choice by navigating out of parking spaces and maneuvering around objects as necessary. It is ideal for moving your car out of a tight parking spot, through puddles, or helping drivers who may be walking to their car while carrying groceries. Enhanced Summon works with your Tesla mobile app when your phone is detected within 150 feet of your vehicle.

To use Enhanced Summon, open the Tesla mobile app. Tap on "Summon" and select the Enhanced Summon icon in the middle of the vehicle graphic. To activate Enhanced Summon, either press and hold the FIND ME button or drop a pin at the destination of your choice and press and hold the START button. At any time, you can stop your car by releasing the button.

Enhanced Summon also integrates with HomeLink and will open your garage door to pull your car out of the garage. Like Summon, Enhanced Summon is only intended for use in parking lots and driveways, not public roads. This feature is in beta mode and you must monitor your vehicle and its surroundings at all times.

Note: To use Enhanced Summon, download the latest version of the Tesla mobile app (3.8.2 or later), enable GPS on your device and ensure you have cell service. Enhanced Summon may require additional camera calibration and will only work if the driver and the car are both within the blue circle displayed on the screen.

Navigate on Autopilot (Beta)
Model S
Model 3
Model X
AutoPilot HW 2 or Higher
Navigate on AutoPilot
Lane Change Confirmation: Off
Available only in Canada, Mexico, USA
Requires: EAP or FSD

Navigate on Autopilot can now make lane changes without requiring the driver to confirm the suggested lane change. To turn off lane change confirmations go to Controls > Autopilot > CUSTOMIZE NAVIGATE ON AUTOPILOT > REQUIRE LANE CHANGE CONFIRMATION and set it to NO. With lane change confirmations turned off, you can also adjust how you prefer to be notified by adjusting LANE CHANGE NOTIFICATION.

With this release, you can also enable Navigate on Autopilot at the start of each route where the feature is available by setting ENABLE AT START OF EVERY TRIP to YES.

Note: With confirmation turned off, lane changes will only be made once we’ve confirmed that the driver’s hands are on the wheel. Disabling lane confirmation does not abdicate the driver of their responsibility to keep their hands on the wheel, be engaged at all times and carefully monitor their car's surroundings.

New Acceleration Mode

Dual Motor
Available Worldwide

For easier access, we have moved the Max Battery Power button to a new Acceleration mode. To enable Max Battery Power select the "+" level under Controls > Driving > Acceleration. To cancel at any time, change the acceleration mode to another level.

Summon with Key Fob
Model 3
AutoPilot HW 2 or Higher
Available only in USA

You can move your Model 3 in and out of a parking space from outside the car using a paired key fob. To initiate Summon, stand within 10 feet (3 meters) of the parked car and press and hold the top center button on the key fob until the hazard lights blink continuously. Press the front or rear trunk button on the key fob to move the car forward and reverse respectively.

Note: To operate Summon with the key fob, Require Continuous Press must be set to NO under Controls > Autopilot > Customize Summon.

Sentry Mode
Model 3
Sentry Mode
Autopilot2
Available Worldwide

Sentry Mode continuously monitors your car’s surroundings while it’s locked and parked. When enabled, the car automatically enters the Standby state with its cameras and sensors remain powered to detect potential threats and trigger an appropriate response state: Alert or Alarm. To enable Sentry Mode, go to Controls > Safety & Security > Sentry Mode.

If a minimal threat is detected, such as someone leaning on your car, Sentry Mode switches to the Alert state, displaying a message on your touchscreen indicating that cameras are recording.

If a major threat is detected, such as someone breaking a window, Sentry Mode switches to the Alarm state. In this state, the car alarm activates, the audio system generates a loud and unexpected sound, the message on the touchscreen increases to maximum brightness, and you receive a notification on your mobile app.

To save the video clip captured while in Sentry Mode, you must insert a formatted USB flash drive into one of your front USB ports beforehand. Sentry Mode requires more than 20% battery to operate. If your battery falls below 20% while the feature is active, Sentry Mode turns off and you receive a notification on your mobile app.

Note that Sentry Mode is designed to enhance the security of your car, but cannot protect your car from all possible threats.

Dashcam

Dashcam can now record and store video footage captured by your car’s side cameras in addition to the narrow forward camera. As usual, the Dashcam icon will be displayed in the status bar with a red dot indicating that it is recording. Tap the icon to save 10 minute video clips or press and hold to pause recording.

Dog Mode
Model S
Model 3
Model X
Available Worldwide

Keep your dog comfortable in your car while letting people passing by know they don't need to worry with Dog Mode. In addition to keeping the climate on, the touchscreen will display the current cabin temperature. To enable Dog Mode, tap the fan icon at the bottom of the touchscreen when your car is parked. Set Keep Climate On to DOG, make adjustments within restricted temperature limits, then leave knowing your pet will stay comfortable.

Note: Check local laws for any restrictions on leaving pets unattended in your car.

Trip Planner (Beta)
Model S
Model X
Tesla Maps
Available only in China, South Korea

Trip Planner helps you take longer road trips with confidence. If reaching your destination requires charging, Trip Planner routes you through the appropriate Supercharger locations. Trip Planner selects a route that minimizes the time you spend driving and charging. To use Trip Planner, touch Controls > Navigation > Trip Planner (Beta) > On.
