The Co-pilot app was developed by Tesla drivers for Tesla drivers. We'd love to hear what you like, what you don't like, what needs fixing, and what new features you'd like to see!

Co-pilot is available for iOS users, as a free download from the Apple App Store. The Android version is in development and will be available in the near future.
Yes! Co-pilot communicates with your vehicle using the Telsa API (created by Tesla Inc.). The My Tesla password you provide is sent directly to the Tesla Inc's API server to authenticate and grant a secure token used for all subsequent API calls. The password is never saved by the app and never stored on Co-pilot servers.
All network communication by the Co-pilot app is encrypted over SSL. Co-pilot servers are hosted on Amazon's secure cloud data centers, which are compliant with industry standards and accredited under:
Currently, the Tesla API that Co-pilot interfaces with does not provide Autosteer on/off data. Co-pilot will make a best effort to automatically determine when you have Autosteer Enabled/Disabled through Audio tone detection. Rest assured, no audio is ever saved or stored anywhere. The app processes short chunks of audio data, looking for the specific frequencies that make up the Autosteer Start/End/Alarm tones, and then discards the audio.
As with all voice recognition / audio detection systems, there's a margin of error where detection is missed, or falsely detected. However, there are some things that can be done to maximize the detection rate.
