Best Tesla Road Trip Tracker App? Teslastics vs TeslaFi

What are the differences between Teslastics & TeslaFi? Read on!

Teslastics
TeslaFi

The presentation in Teslastics is very aesthetically pleasing, in comparison to TeslaFi. TeslaFi however appears to have more detail in their interface.

TeslaFi: All Completed Charges To 100% Percent

Price

TeslaFi is $5/per month whereas Teslastics is $4/ per month. TeslaFi has the option of prepaying for the whole year and getting two months for free (or $4.16/per month)

Battery drain?

They each have a way of holding off pulling data from the Tesla API so your car is able to fall asleep when it is resting in your garage or elsewhere.

It is not recommend to use both at the same time as you may run into issues with the car waking and draining your battery so stick with one at time.

Both services offer a firmware tracker where you can see the number of cars on different builds as well as your own car and when it was last updated. Also, they both run in the cloud so there is no need to have software running on your computer or anything to update.

You can view TeslaFi’s tracker page without signing up.

Teslastics: My Software Versions
Teslastics: 2019.32.12.2 is the most common release in the Tesla Fleet right now.

TeslaFi has the ability to schedule commands to run on your car depending on the time of day. For for instance, like warming up your car before your commute or cooling when your workday is nearly completion. These tasks can also be location dependent or only when your charger is connected. You could set it up to stop charging at 6:30am and resume at 7:30am so that your battery is warm and primed for you to leave for your destination by 8am.

Teslastics breaks down charging data by biggest charges and fastest charges, which in my case right now is the same exact charge whereas TeslaFi shows by Supercharger, AC, DC and CHAdeMo / CCS.

There are a number of features that TeslaFi has added that haven’t been added to Teslastics yet. TeslaFi has a page dedicated to showing which members are currently charging and other data.

I like the addition of features that TeslaFi has added to their product however I prefer the appearance of the information in Teslastics. It’s a touch choice but do think either would be helpful on a long road trip. Data is fun!
