Tesla Model X Gets Software Update that Includes Change to Summon Feature

The Tesla Model X has received a new over-the-air update.

Included in the update is a change to the car’s Summon feature, which was updated on the Model S following reports of a recent incident where a Model S owner claims his vehicle drove itself into a trailer. Now, Tesla Model X owners will also have to choose a direction for the vehicle to travel when Summon is activated, an extra step that helps confirm that the vehicle owner actually wants Summon to be used.
