    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    I just tried. Both USB ports same results. Played song part way opened door, got out and left about 20 minutes. Came back opened door and is quiet. Screen shows choose media source and defaults to Tidal with a big QR code to set up. It should default to USB at least if one is present. Not to a...

    That stinks about your trim. Someone took a shortcut because the Tesla manual says to tape the trim to prevent that from happening. I had mine taped already when I took it in since I took it apart myself. The flasher and the glovebox switches have their own wires to connect to each button...

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    Thanks for the MCU2 tips. I haven’t driven much since the upgrade to explore it but great to know. I’ll have to play around with it. I guess I’m just used to the manual never working in MCU1 lol I’m just happy no more lava lamp looking screens and the leaking gel smell is finally starting to fade.

    Lucky you. Not so lucky here. Heck. No luck. Went to pull out of garage yesterday both screens blank. Didn’t power on. After awhile could get into gear and back out. Drove back and forth in the driveway a little. Tried scroll reset. Nothing seemed to happen. Another another minute or two it...

    Yes that was nice they transferred settings and streaming channels. All but Homelink. Be prepared for an entrance gate or garage not to open. Will need reprogrammed with appropriate transmitters.

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    Hopefully that date holds. Did they confirm they have the parts? If not, expect another reschedule. I think mine changes three times. The day the parts came in they let me know and I brought it to them the same day. Had to leave it as they say it takes a lot of time sometimes to get all the...

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    No I did not add the tuner. $1500 plus tax. Invoice shows zero for labor. I don’t think I ever turned the FM radio on in the car in over 8 years. Never bothered with XM either. The streaming was good enough for me. Besides from what I read it is $500 at time of MCU upgrade or if later still...

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    I originally bought the Pre loaded SD card from Tesla. Had the car mostly apart already. When I found out about the MCU2. I decided to hold off bothering with the SD card change and returned it. I thought it was only going to be 10-12 days for the MCU parts order. After I kept getting delay...

    Maybe some of these screen shots will help answer your question. There is a button of three dots that opens a window with 12 apps of things to access. The last two you used then appear to the right of the three dot button for easy access to those apps. The screen shot of the theater app May...

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    Parts came in last week and I got the MCU2 upgrade done. I don’t really like that the font on the speedo and the letters and numbers on the trip for the instrument screen are a different font than MCU1. They are a little shorter yet fatter. Think zeroes 0 now being more like letter O and perhaps...

    MCU2 upgrade appointments

    Ugh. Didn’t want to see that. Placed parts order beginning of February. Still no word of even shipping as of today.

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    Sorry I knew it was long winded but thought it may help somebody that stumbles across it. Funny how it seems lots of reports of the same nav database failing all within the last month or so. Starting to think may not be the SD card and something to do with the last update. I was told the SD...

    Opinions Wanted: Upgrade to MCU2

    Same car same mileage and same problems. The SD card for nav repair is $300. I decided to tackle it myself. The SD card from Tesla preloaded is $20. (They gave me a 16gb Gigastone) Any old SD card would work. Download time of 4.5 hours plus on real good WiFi to download I was told. I went to...

    2015 Model S Nav Map SD Card Swap?

    Jeremy0916. Thanks for the posts. Mine keeps giving an error code MCU_w007 Navigation database not loaded. Connect to WiFi. Doesn’t download anything. I got Tesla estimate for the fix at $285 labor and $20 Micro SD card. Just wanted to say thanks for the posts as I plan on figuring out how to...
