    [UK] 2021.12.x

    False alarm, I'm afraid. I was in park. In drive there's no change after all. Sorry.

    Autopilot - Not Avaliable (most of the time)

    I've had it when I've set the headlights away from Auto.

    [UK] 2021.12.x

    I haven't tried it for a while so it might be old news but I can now swipe for tire pressures or trip meters (after the UI change had made it all but impossible to find the place to swipe).

    [UK] 2021.4.x

    I worked in software design audit in the 80s and 90s, in big science, like CERN. We used to talk about the "version 4" phenomenon. There was a common pattern to software maintenance. Version 1 should never have been delivered but management forced it. Version 2 was what version 1 should have...

    Headlights adjusted unexpectedly?

    I got the impression that mine were resetting themselves to night sky pollution mode with each 2020.48.* update. But with the 2021.4.* it doesn't seem to have happened. Just a suspicion; not a thorough investigation.

    Camera colour reproduction

    That's my understanding too. A green filter removes too much useful information, so apart from the rear camera, I think the rest of the cameras are Red Clear Clear Blue.

    FSD - Change lane without NOA

    It confuses me as well. (I have FSD and I always have NOA requested.) If there's one blue line down the centre (NOA active) I always get automatic lane changes, needing a light indicator tap to confirm a suggested lane change, and needing a solid indicator tap if I'm asking for a lane change...

    Echo Auto

    It's difficult for me to determine. I don't have a Spotify account and my phone doesn't have the Spotifiy app. However (complicated story), my Alexa account does have a link to a Spotify subscription; we've linked my daughter's Spotify account to my Alexa account. In the house, if we ask Alexa...

    Echo Auto

    Not quite sure what kinds of things they might be.

    Echo Auto

    This is true. There is a small speaker it uses if it's not BTed to the car. But I doubt you'd hear it when moving. That was the problem with the Dot. You could have the car connected to the phone or playing the radio; but you could hardly hear the Dot's speaker above, say, 20 mph. Maybe if and...

    Echo Auto

    It comes with an adapter plug to give you USB from the 12V power socket, but I just plugged the USB cable into the USB socket.

    Echo Auto

    I've simply put the Echo next to phone on the phone tray. Here's the install: The Echo Dot that this replaces was too tall for the phone tray so it sat just beneath in the forward part of the center console storage. Voice recognition here on the tray was as good as the Dot's; maybe a little...

    Echo Auto

    I saw that the Echo Auto is now available in the UK and I ordered one. It arrived today. It's small - a bit bigger than a compact cassette (for those who remember them). I haven't had an opportunity for a long journey, but I might have an opportunity tomorrow. It's interesting. It connects to...

    Feature Request

    On other digital radios I've seen, the information scrolls horizontally in order that you can read all of it. Could we have the Tesla digital radio scroll horizontally please. And perhaps broken into two lines. (DAB in a Model 3 in the UK in my case.) On the station I usually listen to, the...

    2020.12.5 Rolling

    I'm seeing stop lines now. That is, in addition to the visualization of the traffic lights themselves, there are now visualizations of the line on the ground where it thinks it would be stopping once autopilot starts using it. (Here in Lambeth the road markings are so badly maintained that it...
