Tesla Model 3: Stopping or Canceling Smart Summon

Tesla Model 3 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Autopilot / Smart Summon / Stopping or Canceling Smart Summon

Smart Summon stops Model 3 whenever you release the button on the mobile app. To resume the Smart Summon session, simply press the COME TO ME or GO TO TARGET button again.

Warning: Always anticipate when you need to stop Model 3. Depending on the quality of the connectivity between the phone and Model 3, there may be a slight delay between when you release the button and when the car stops.

Smart Summon cancels, and requires you to restart it, when:

  • A door handle is engaged or a door is opened.
  • You interact with the steering wheel, brake pedal, accelerator pedal, or gear stalk.
  • Model 3 is blocked by an obstacle.
  • Smart Summon has moved Model 3 the maximum distance of approximately 475 feet (145 meters) within a 213 foot (65 meter) radius of the phone's location. To move further than this distance, you must shift Model 3 into a driving gear (Drive or Reverse) and then re-initiate an Smart Summon session.
  • Your phone enters sleep mode or loses connectivity to Model 3.

Limitations

Smart Summon is unlikely to operate as intended in the following types of situations:

  • GPS data is unavailable due to poor cellular coverage.
  • The driving path is sloped. Smart Summon is designed to operate on flat roads only (up to 10% grade).
  • A raised concrete edge is detected.

    Depending on the height of the concrete edge, Smart Summon may not move Model 3 over it.

  • One or more of the ultrasonic sensors or cameras is damaged, dirty, or obstructed (such as by mud, ice, or snow, or by a vehicle bra, excessive paint, or adhesive products such as wraps, stickers, rubber coating, etc.).
  • Weather conditions (heavy rain, snow, fog, or extremely hot or cold temperatures) are interfering with sensor or camera operation.
  • The sensors are affected by other electrical equipment or devices that generate ultrasonic waves

Note: Smart Summon is disabled if Model 3 is in Valet mode

Warning: The list above does not represent an exhaustive list of situations that may interfere with proper operation of Smart Summon. It is the driver's responsibility to remain in control of Model 3 at all times. Pay close attention whenever Smart Summon is actively moving Model 3 and stay prepared to take immediate action. Failure to do so can result in serious property damage, injury or death.
