If past experience continues to hold, this only seems to happen after an app update or if you have to reboot your phone.
Here's a list of features they appear to have removed from the app with this update:
1) vehicle status (locked, unlocked, door open, etc)
2) lock/unlock/honk/flash features (for those lucky enough to even have the lock feature)
3) current odometer reading and miles until next service
4) trip data
5) ability to create and edit charging schedules (not that it worked before anyway)
1 and 2 were disabled for me prior to this update as it requires a subscription. I have never seen 3 or 4 on either the app or the web version.
5 was never editable for me on the app. I had to use the web portal to do that. I could only turn the timers on or off via the app.
And here's a list of things they appear to have added or improved with this update:
1) Absolutely nothing
I like the new home screen which shows me the charge level as a series of 10 large bars arranged in a circle as opposed to a bar graph; much easier to read. You also don't have to switch screens to start/stop charging.
