    Using the Nav to get to the SoDo Service Center - Not a good idea?

    I believe the nav thinks that the service center is literally on the I-90 offramp. Thus the strange routing. Drop a pin just to the north and you'll be OK.

    Could not connect to home Wifi (Ubiquiti UniFi Long Range Access Point)

    The latest Unifi beta firmwares don't connect to my X particularly well anymore. It's poor.

    FWDs failed, override inoperative

    Oddly, the sensor is clean. It's just about only part of my car that does not attract deposits from EV-interested birds!

    FWDs failed, override inoperative

    Looks like it's a sensor problem. Under extreme conditions even the manual override fails. See attached pic. Randomly, the doors begin to work again. This failure occurred outside; there was nothing overhead when parked, nor for the last few miles.

    FWDs failed, override inoperative

    This morning both FWDs failed to open at school. Two kids had to exit via the front doors, and the toddler extricated via an open window. The touch screen override for obstacle detection failed. The car was not parked near any obstacles. This has occurred in the past, but only during cold...

    X: What's your 90%?

    After 10K miles my 90D's 90% has dropped to 224 miles.

    Could not connect to home Wifi (Ubiquiti UniFi Long Range Access Point)

    I have two AC HD units. They both work fine with Tesla. Reception is improved over the previous Ubiquiti the AC Pros.

    Elon Musk

    He's paving the road to hell with his good intentions. Collaborating with the regime only encourages Trump, who interprets Elon's actions as fealty. Is time for Elon to show whether he has principles, or cares for any interests but his own.

    Model X Winter Driving Experience

    I think you're spot on. Do snow tires work well in rain? Around here it's 99% rain in the wintertime, and 1% snow.

    Model X Winter Driving Experience

    I have 20" tires, which are all-season. I'm not sure the AWD systems matter as much as simple friction. The 4x4 Suburban is 10% heavier and, because they have a high energy gas tank and don't give a hoot about efficiency, can be ordered with wider tires. I suppose the epitome of this idea is...

    Model X Winter Driving Experience

    I drove in the snow just this morning. Overnight snowfall combined with surface temperatures slightly above freezing combined to make for a slippery snow pack. The X handled well, but it was far from magic: traction control activated occasionally, which is less than ideal, and I fishtailed the...

    Autopilot-Tesla fatality rate HIGHER than non-Autopilot Teslas

    I believe the fatality rate for AP is worse than this article concludes, simply because the number of non-autopilot fatalities includes "non traffic" related deaths, such as suicides, stolen car chases, and high speed pursuits. By my reckoning, there are three non-AP fatalities that occurred in...

    Model X v8.0 Autopilot rear-end collision

    If you normally drive with TACC set to five, and your wife drives with two, it sounds as though your preference is to leave more space, which means that without Autopilot engaged you would probably have had enough space to have prevented this accident, but that your wife would not have. On the...

    Does UI display individual tire pressure?

    The car doesn't just count wheel rotations? Is there an advantage to an analog pressure sensor?

    Model X didn't warn when my wife was backing up the car and hit a parked car

    I've found the ultrasonic parking sensors to be fairly slow. Once, I did experience a situation where they apparently did not beep, but I've modified my behavior to back up more slowly and the glitch has not reoccurred.
