How does it work?
Ctrl-Bar connects to your phone using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and is powered via a hidden USB cable connected to a rear center console USB port. Your phone runs our app in the background. The app listens for changes made to the physical buttons and then communicates this to your car using the Tesla API.
Your phone needs an internet connection (cellular or Wi-Fi), just like your Tesla app. Premium connectivity is not required, and our app will prioritize your privacy, only capturing the data needed to run the services.
There is a slight delay when sending commands over the internet from the Ctrl-Bar to your car. To avoid a degraded user experience, Ctrl-Bar has a screen in the center showing your real-time changes. If you, for example, want to change your temperature from 65 to 70 F, you would turn the knob five indents to the right. The screen will show your new temperature as you turn (66F, 67F, 68F, 69F, 70F). When you're done turning, it will send the new temperature to your car (in less than a second). This results in a great user experience with no latency as you turn the knob and press the buttons.
Ctrl-Bar works with all Model 3/Y.
Ctrl-Bar attaches with a strong 3M adhesive. Installation is simple and self aligning.
