Battery % and Range in App

33

Description

Have the Tesla phone app to show the amount of battery charge as a percent as well as the estimated range. Better still would be the projected range as well as range based on the last 30 miles.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

Unfortunately the estimated range is not what is normally achieved and therefore can be misleading when planning journeys.

I Agree this is useful. You can currently get that through the Remote S App from the app store. It costs $, but worth it I think.
I prefer to think in terms of "rated miles" instead of "% of battery". After nearly 70K Model S miles, I have not really needed to know percentage; just rated miles needed to get to the next stop.  Besides, the battery bar itself is already a graphical version of the percentage.
People say that rated miles remaining is misleading, but it is no more misleading than percentage.
Rated miles & Percentage should also be shown at the same time on the dash.
This is a no-brainer!
