At the moment, only Tesla Model 3 vehicles can be spotted using the Tesla Radar app. This has to do with the “Phone Key” feature that is part of Model 3's feature-set.

As Tesla is including this very convenient feature into newer vehicles, we would like to find out whether it's possible to also identify ‘Model Y’ or the upcoming Tesla Cybertruck by the signature they emit.

How to Help Us

Since we are located in Europe, there is not a lot of chance to see Tesla cars other than Model S, Model X and Model 3, yet. This is different in the US, where quite recently a lot of test-driving Model Y cars were spotted. Quite likely, these new models do transmit a Bluetooth LE signature that we are interested in analyzing.

No matter, whether you are on iOS or Android: There is apps for both platforms that can display Bluetooth LE devices in their proximity. Andoid users could use the app BLE Scanner for Android and iPhone users could use the app BLE Scanner for iPhone in order to see these BLE devices.

Once you see a Tesla Model Y, pull out your phone, open the BLE monitoring app and take a screenshot. (Instructions for Android, Instructions for iPhone )
