VivoKey NAK might also work for Y and S

Talking to Tesla sales support this morning I was told that as early as “last week” the model S was updated to support a “key card”. They could not confirm the technology used, or if this was a software update only or new hardware was needed, but in checking the Tesla keycard product page, what used to say “Model 3” only now says “Model 3/Y” … so perhaps S will join the ranks soon?

It would be great if VivoKey NAK worked with the Model S, 3, and Y…

Well at least you can delete the Service Key. Makes me suspect it’s a shared secret, though, from that public key being pushed, which is scary.

@amal or @fraggersparks so I test drove a model 3 yesterday and they gave me a valet key to use. They told me I had to keep it down on the center console while driving. Do either of you guys know if this card has to always be on the console in order to drive? I’d imagine with the Apex after you register the chip with the console you wouldn’t have to keep it there the whole time. Just curious about how that worked.

I suspect this is a key point.

I confirmed the standard process with my friend, it’s only needed to start up.
