Band4Tesla turns your Microsoft Band into a remote control for your Tesla Model S. A new custom tile is added to your Band that you can use to check on the status of your vehicle and perform several useful remote control operations. Band4Tesla works with both version 1 and version 2 bands.
Run the app once to create the custom tile and enter your account information. You can then close the app and it will be reactivated silently whenever you open the Tesla tile on your Band.
While in the background, Band4Tesla is idle and has no impact on data usage or battery life. The Tesla tile requires that your Band be within Bluetooth range of your phone, and that Band4Tesla be running in the background (be sure to launch it again each time you restart your phone).
Information displayed in the Tesla tile includes:
• Drive status (parked or driving)
• Current speed (if driving)
• Current location
• Environmental control status (on or off) and inside temperature
• Door status (locked or unlocked)
• Charging status and time remaining to full charge
• Lock/unlock doors
• Environmental control on/off
• Flash lights
• Honk horn
• Start car (without key)
On the Band4Tesla home screen, you can remove any controls from the Tesla tile that you don't need or don't wish to have on the Band.
