    PS4 game controller?

    I have also not had any luck with PS4 dualshock 4 controller plugging into the car. I also tried a couple other PS4 controllers from other people. Tried reset using the back button - including while powered on. Tried the manual pairing (PS button and "share" held down). No luck yet from Cuphead...

    Possible Location - Brockville Ontario

    I am very often going on Parkedale between North Augusta and Stewart or Ormund. Still no sign of supercharger, but I also am only really looking from the road. I finally see above that it is at 1942 Parkedale (Starbucks mall) so will check more thoroughly soon. I’d like to add another reason...

    Autonomy: $40,000 CAD Net Gain per year

    No, because FSD is an optional option. It is not required. You could still buy the non-FSD options for what they currently are. I suppose this would be relative to the supply/demand curve. If FSD supply is still below demand, it would be a profit source, so would be "worth" a significant...

    Autonomy: $40,000 CAD Net Gain per year

    Hello fellow TMC users! I was a bit surprised to not see an analysis of profit potential that Elon quoted at $30k USD/yr. As such, I made my own, and I welcome any feedback or criticism. Any is welcome! Docs link: Tesla Autonomy April 2019 For a version without images, for those who do not...

    Blog Tesla Plans Debut of Robotaxi Service in 2020

    Forgot to answer to this one. You do NOT have to return the car. You just don't have the option to buy the car once your leases is done. That's what Elon said.

    Blog Tesla Plans Debut of Robotaxi Service in 2020

    1 - it is behind windshield. Still needs to see through. 2 - Side cameras get covered in salt during winter in places (Canada, for example) that use salt on the roads to de-ice. Every couple days I have to manually rub the side cameras during the winter to confirm they will work. If it's a...

    Model 3 will generate cash flow of $10,000 per year at a minimum on an autonomous taxi platform

    I've been scanning these forums for something like the article you mention before posting my own. Glad I finally found one! I'll be reading it now. The profit potential really is staggering and I'm honestly surprised more people aren't giddy with excitement over it. It's a pretty exciting time...

    2 ton death machines

    I really like that suggestion/idea! Makes a lot of sense to me. IMO It will take a long time for drivers to be "banned" - decades. It would also be very gradual. Once the majority of cars being sold are autonomous, by that point fleets of autonomous vehicles will make it so that car ownership is...
