As of my last knowledge update in September 2021, you can change your home address in a Tesla vehicle through the car’s settings. Please note that Tesla’s software and user interfaces may change over time, so the exact steps could vary slightly. Here are the general steps to change your home address in a Tesla:
Method 1: Using the Tesla Touchscreen
- Turn on your Tesla: Make sure your Tesla is turned on and the touchscreen is active.
- Access the Settings Menu: Tap the “Settings” icon on the touchscreen. This is usually represented by a gear or a set of cogs.
- Navigate to Navigation: In the Settings menu, look for and select the “Navigation” option. This is where you can manage your home address.
- Update Home Address: Within the Navigation settings, you should find an option to set or update your home address. Select it.
- Enter the New Address: Use the touchscreen keyboard to enter your new home address. You may need to enter your address details, including the street name, number, city, and ZIP code.
- Save the Changes: After entering the new home address, there should be an option to save or confirm the changes. Save the updated address to set it as your new home location.
Method 2: Using the Tesla Mobile App (if available):
Please note that Tesla’s mobile app capabilities may vary by region and vehicle model. If the Tesla mobile app allows you to manage your home address, you can use it to update the address. Here are the general steps:
- Open the Tesla App: Launch the Tesla mobile app on your smartphone or tablet.
- Log In: Log in using your Tesla account credentials.
- Access Vehicle Settings: Find and select your Tesla vehicle within the app to access its settings.
- Navigate to Navigation: Look for navigation-related settings within the app.
- Update Home Address: Within the navigation settings, you should find an option to set or update your home address. Select it.
- Enter the New Address: Use the app’s interface to enter your new home address.
- Save the Changes: After entering the new address, there should be an option to save or confirm the changes. Save the updated address to set it as your new home location.
Once you’ve changed your home address in your Tesla, the updated address should be used as the default for navigation and other features that rely on your home location.
Keep in mind that Tesla’s software and user interfaces may change with software updates, so it’s a good idea to consult your vehicle’s owner’s manual or Tesla’s official website for the most up-to-date instructions if you encounter any difficulties. Additionally, please ensure that you operate your Tesla safely and avoid making changes to settings while driving.
