Tessie features many unique alerts that help make life a little easier and add more peace of mind to your Tesla ownership.

Tessie alerts are designed to perfectly complement those supplied by Tesla, so you never need to worry about getting spammed or seeing duplicate information.

Enabling alerts

You can enable or disable alerts under Alerts in the app or on

Some alerts are location specific. To add location specific alerts, tag a location by tapping the tag in any drive, charge or parking session. You can also add a new location by going to  Tagged Locations. In your tagged location, go to Alerts.

Notifications are sent to every device where you're signed in and notifications are allowed on the device.
