PowerTools For Tesla is a collection of powerful, easy-to-use tools to measure, record and display a wealth of real-time information directly from your Tesla vehicle. Information is sourced in real-time directly from your Tesla vehicle and is therefore highly accurate, coming directly from the "horse's mouth". Now you can measure and display in real-time your zero-to-sixty times, maximum horsepower, speed and vehicle 3-D trajectories, complete with latitude, longitude and elevation.
View, display and plot a wide range of real-time measurements, including:
- State of Charge (SOC)
With PowerTools For Tesla you can answer with ease several questions about your Model S, such as:
- what exactly is my zero-to-sixty speed?
- exactly how much horsepower does my Model S now have?
- how many of those horses am I really using on day-to-day basis?
- how does elevation change affect my max power usage?
- where exactly did that valet go, and how fast (max speed/power)?
PowerTools For Tesla is very easy to use: Simply start and view your measurements with one touch of a button. PowerTools For Tesla does require that your iPhone or iPad have a cellular or Wi-Fi internet connection. For reliable long-duration measurements taken while in a moving Tesla vehicle, it is recommended that you switch off Wi-Fi and rely solely on your cellular connection, since Wi-Fi range is much more limited and you will easily lose Wi-Fi connectivity when your Tesla drives out of Wi-Fi range.
PowerTools For Tesla communicates wirelessly with your vehicle. To use PowerTools For Tesla you need to own a Tesla vehicle and have login access to My Tesla. Login credentials are securely encrypted within the app and used solely to communicate with your Tesla Model S via Tesla Motors, Inc. official vehicle telemetry servers. All communications are encrypted.

Great when it works
Provides info on power and a 0-60 timer but the application has trouble staying connected to the car for more than a few seconds. Never been able to stay connected long enough for a 0-60 run. I would not recommend until this issue which others have reported is fixed.
Developers ignore defective app
Update July 2018:
Developers continue to advertise falsely that users can see 4 gauges of data.
Apple should pull this app until the app developers provide a description which more accurately reflects the lack of competency and/or commitment to their product.
I encourage these app developers to write apps for Windows phones instead of iPhones. Their lack of talent and caring will fit in well with MS culture.
The app’s description includes deceptive pictures indicating users can see four (4) gauges of information on your screen (speed, power, max speed and max power).
In fact, the max power is only ~60% viewable, as the sloppy developers haven’t provided the correct coding to provide what they falsely claim. They even left this defect in their most recent update‼️
Past reviewers have pointed this out in reviews, and the developers continue to ignore this misleading advertising result.
This is (as far as I know), the only app that [tries] to do what this app promises.
Hopefully, a competent developer will see an opportunity here and offer a fully functional power tools for the growing Tesla base of users.
A little pricey but does the job well!
The app is a little pricey for basically displaying information got using your Tesla login especially with a very basic UI but.. if you want the info, this app does the job well.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
