    Map auto zoom not working?

    It only zooms for me when I go from highway to off highway or vice versa. Why would it change based on speed?

    Dealing with Tesla service.

    Evidently it depends on where you live. I have had excellent results using the app with Raleigh SC. I have even just asked technical questions and received excellent advice. I had a Mobile Tech request once where the appt came back as SC which is 150 mile. I cancelled the appt and requested...

    Charging option doesn’t appear on the main menu

    The Charging menu item was removed to make room for new menu items. Replaced with lightning bolt for quicker access.

    Car won't charge on 120v or 240v but will still fast/Supercharge

    It sounds like your onboard AC to DC converter is faulty, since you can charge at Supercharger. Supercharger is DC and bypasses the AC to DC converter. You would have to check with Service Center to find out if this is something a Mobile Tech can replace.

    Do you have any scheduled charging functions active?

    Schedule Departure While Unplugged

    I use Scheduled Departure all of the time and it always works perfectly for me. I think a lot of the issues is not understanding “how” it is designed to work, but wanting it to work the way you “want” it to work.

    SlackerRadio Repeat and Fav song

    It works like Pandora or Prime Music. When you ask for a favorite song, it names a station. It will play a list of songs similar to this song and with similar artists. You have a chance to like or dislike each choice, thumb up or down, and to list the artist as a favorite, star icon at the...

    Turn off recirculation, car sounds like a jet

    Condenser coil - The coil inside the car is the Condenser Coil. I just said coil thinking Condenser was understood.

    Turn off recirculation, car sounds like a jet

    When you turn off Recirc you are letting hot, moist air into the car. The Climate Control system has to ramp wide open trying to suddenly cool down this hot air. Auto does a good job of controlling recirc. I just leave mine in Auto and adjust temp as needed and have not had a problem...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    258 miles / 0.9 = 287 miles at 100%. When was the last time you charged from 20-100%? This will help recalibrate the BMS. I have a similar 8/2018 M3 LR RWD at 30k miles. I am getting about 264 miles at 90% which extrapolates to 294 miles at 100%. So we are fairly close. I have not charged...

    MASTER THREAD: Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    When was the last time you did a 20-100% charge? If you typically charge between like 50-80%, the BMS will develop a memory for this range. If you charge over a wider range, BMS will recalibrate for the wider range.

    How to compare home charging costs with supercharger costs

    You can go the Tesla website and click on Charging. This will give you a complete summary of your charging history, including cost per kWh or cost per minute if it is a Tier charge.

    Which NEMA Adapters to carry?

    I have the adapter bundle plus a couple extra, just in case. I have two UMC’s and two 14-50’s. One for home and one for travel. The only ones I have used on the road, so far, is the J-1772 and 5-15!
