Tesla Model S: Connecting to Wi-Fi

Wi-Fi is available as a data connection method and is often faster than cellular data networks. Connecting to Wi-Fi is especially useful in areas with limited or no cellular connectivity. To ensure fast, reliable delivery of software and map updates, Tesla recommends leaving Model S connected to a Wi-Fi network whenever possible (for example, when parked overnight).

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

1. Touch Controls > Wi-Fi icon at the top of the Controls screen. Model S begins to scan and display detected Wi-Fi networks that are within range.

NOTE: If a known Wi-Fi network does not appear in the list, move Model S closer to the access point or consider using a range extender.

2. Select the Wi-Fi network you want to use, enter the password (if necessary), then touch Confirm.

3. Model S connects to the Wi-Fi network. Whenever the network is within range, Model S connects to it automatically.

You can also connect to a hidden network that isn't shown on the list of scanned networks. Just touch Wi-Fi Settings, enter the name of the network in the resulting dialog box, select the security setting, then touch Add Network.

NOTE: If more than one previously connected network is within range, Model S connects to the one most recently used.

NOTE: At Tesla Service Centers, Model S automatically connects to the Tesla Service Wi-Fi network.

Hotspots and Connectivity

You can also use a mobile hotspot or your phone's Internet connection via Wi-Fi tethering (subject to fees and restrictions of your mobile carrier) to access the internet. To remain connected to Wi-Fi when shifting into Drive or Reverse, choose the connection from the Wi-Fi settings screen, then touch Remain connected in Drive.
