    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    Acceleration is slower, 6.8s 0-100 and no downshifting so still leave most cars for dust. Main impact on energy in urban driving is if you are accelerating hard a lot, yes. If you are cruising and accelerating slowly and smoothly, you'll use about same amount of energy covering the same distance...

    But hey its MY2020 so "resale"

    In WA they've put the blame on defects squarely on Autonexus and the fact that the cars need to go on multiple hops. They also have a small service centre work force (6 weeks between delivery and appointment) and outsource the body repairs. It'll probably be three months now between me receiving...

    How dat? Then its definitely not the update that will cripple you but them realising somehow they have switched you on when they shouldn't have.

    Specific features are though, red light detection isn't going to appear magically because they "enable FSD", the software version needs to be downloaded first and then enabling FSD unlocks it. This is why Smart Summon was only available with 2019.36 + FSD

    More, exactly when its used and when its not as appears to be how boundaries are being successfully set for Smart Summon and some speed limits I've altered in OSM for freeway etc seem to have taken effect though this could be coincidental of course. The school zones thing has me stumped though.

    Essentially as was my understanding given what I've been told. However, my daughter's school zone appeared today on the car's navigation but I can't find a conditional speed limit for that school zone on OSM. My son's school zone which I added to OSM this week still does not appear on the screen.

    Only the source for speed values is "live" from OpenStreetMap while the underlying road map data is Google Maps so its probably a mismatch between the two.

    Best I can tell speed limits are cached from OpenStreetMap so they will only change if the road has been modified so that it aligns better with the OpenStreetMap data and, of course, the OpenStreetMap data is correct

    And you were absolutely right, the first generation of just about every Apple product (iPhone, Mac, iPad, Apple Watch) has been marketing enabled gimmicky garbage that only became useful in the subsequent iterations.

    For which the owner pays for the privilege, I'm training the hell out of the non FSD-only stuff

    Similar, I kick the kids out then drive into the garage so would be nice to leave car at same time and have it drive in but not a must. Similar how Homelink is a nice to have. But this is why we have options and some choose to assert them and others, like myself, opt to save the money and don't.

    A Dukes of Hazzard horn, think Musk wants people to be able to customize along these lines but yeah just use the horn if you see kids deciding to play in traffic

    I've approached plenty of pedestrian crossings, people stepping into the street at corners, etc. I haven't seen anybody launch themselves into the street yet. I'm not against noise makers (even though ironically they will likely make the Tesla noisier than a contemporary ICE) but I don't think...
