What's new in version 4.2.1
Update 4.2.1 contains a bug fix thanks to Jussi on the Tesla forum thread for pointing out the differences between Rated/Typical range on non-U.S. vehicles. The first page on the Apple Watch now displays the Typical range if you choose the Energy or Typical Range display in your car. The complications also work correctly now for those using kilometers rather than miles. Version log 4.2.0: Watch Complications now displays your battery range and battery percentage left. Added the ability to change the amount of time to wait for your car to wake up before retrying the commands again if it failed. This adjusts the wait time for both the buttons in the app and the shortcuts. If you find that Siri fails too often due to the car still being asleep, extending the wait time by a few seconds could help. If you find that Siri takes too long to respond to your commands, then shortening the wait time by a few seconds could help. Keep in mind that if your car is not asleep, then usually the command would go right through without a need to wait. So don't adjust the wait time based on when the car is awake. Fixed an issue where if you never assigned a name for your Tesla, you couldn't see certain information such as charge time left or whether your car was asleep or not. Added a "Pwr" label next to the charging power display to describe what that number is.
