Tesla Model Y Owners & Service Manuals

Tesla Model Y: Before Using Smart Summon

  • Download the latest version of the Tesla mobile app to your phone, and ensure your phone has cellular service and GPS enabled.
  • Your phone must be connected to Model Y and located within approximately 213 feet (65 meters).
  • The vehicle's cameras must be fully calibrated (see Drive to Calibrate Cameras).
  • You must have a clear line of sight to Model Y.
  • Model Y must be in Park, not charging, and all doors and trunks must be closed.

Using Smart Summon

1. Open the Tesla mobile app, and press Summon.

2. Press the Smart Summon icon located in the center of the image of your Model Y. It may take several seconds for Smart Summon to start up.

NOTE: You can use Standby Mode to eliminate the delay that occurs when Smart Summon is starting up (see Standby Mode).

The mobile app displays a map with a blue circle, which represents the maximum proximity of 213 feet (65 meters) that you must maintain between your phone and Model Y. The blue dot on the map represents your location, and the red arrow represents the location of Model Y.

3. Position yourself anywhere within the blue circle where you have a clear line of sight to Model Y.

4. You can now operate Smart Summon using either of these modes:

  • Come to Me mode: Press and hold the Come to Me button. Model Y moves to your GPS location. As you move, Model Y follows you. When Model Y reaches you, it stops and shifts into park.
  • Go to Target mode: Touch the crosshair icon then drag the map to position the pin on a chosen destination. Press and hold the Go to Target button. Model Y moves to the destination. When reaching the location, Model Y stops and shifts into Park and the mobile app displays a message indicating that Summon has completed.

NOTE: To subsequently change the location, lift your finger, reposition the map, then press and hold Go to Target again.

To stop Model Y at any time, simply release the Come to Me or Go to Target button.

The map's crosshair icon toggles between Go to Target and Come to Me modes. When Come to Me mode is selected, the icon is blue.

NOTE: The map also has an icon that allows you to display/hide satellite imagery.

Immediately after initiating Smart Summon in either mode, hazard lights briefly flash, mirrors fold, and Model Y shifts into Drive or Reverse. Model Y then slowly moves to within 3 feet (1 meter) of you (COME TO ME) or your chosen destination (GO TO TARGET), navigating obstacles as needed. As Model Y moves, the corresponding red arrow on the map also moves to show the vehicle's location. As you move, the corresponding blue dot also moves to show your location.

In either mode, Model Y stops moving and shifts into park when:

You release the button on the mobile app.

  • The maximum proximity of 213 feet (65 meters) between your phone and Model Y is exceeded (if moving Model Y to a destination away from you, you may need to follow the car to maintain this distance).
  • The driving path is blocked.
  • Model Y has moved the maximum distance of 475 feet (145 meters) since the start of the Smart Summon session, or has moved 492 feet (150 meters) away from the location from which the vehicle was last driven manually.

NOTE: If Smart Summon moves Model Y forward three feet and then backwards two feet, this is considered five feet of travel.

NOTE: There is no need to look at the mobile app-just hold down the button while keeping your eye on Model Y and its driving path at all times, remaining ready to release the button to stop the vehicle if needed.

If equipped and Auto HomeLink is enabled for Summon (touch Controls > Autopilot > Customize Summon > Use Auto HomeLink), Smart Summon automatically opens a HomeLink device if you start the Smart Summon maneuver when Model Y is located inside a garage. The mobile app informs you that the door has opened.

WARNING: When you release the button to stop Model Y, a slight delay occurs before the vehicle stops. Therefore, it is critical that you pay close attention to the vehicle's driving path at all times and proactively anticipate obstacles that the vehicle may be unable to detect.

WARNING: Use extreme caution when using Smart Summon in environments where movement of obstacles can be unpredictable. For example, where people, children or animals are present.

WARNING: Smart Summon may not stop for all objects (especially very low objects such as some curbs, or very high objects such as a shelf) and may not react to all oncoming or side traffic. Pay attention and be ready to stop Model Y at all times by releasing the button on the mobile app.
