    MY for long distance ski trips

    Just a quick tape measurement from the rear lip, to the back of the drivers seat is all we need to get a person to go Tesla rather than Hyundai. Thanks

    MY for long distance ski trips

    Friend looking at purchase of model Y. They go on long ski trips and pack a lot of stuff. Illinois to Ophir, Colorado (1363 miles). Needs to know internal cargo dimensions with seats folded down depth and width, to determine if all their stuff will fit. Any related suggestions or experience...

    FSD rewrite will go out on Oct 20 to limited beta

    Radar is quite different. Lidar is optical, and reflects light of the plastic bag or tires surface, knowing only that the surface is there. Radar reflects a signal based on the electrical dielectric and density of the object. It will not see the plastic bag, as the microwave pulse will not...

    FSD rewrite will go out on Oct 20 to limited beta

    Not true. Radar is a microwave pulse, Lidar is optical, and has the same fail modes as cameras. Hence no redundancy. Vision radar, or fine cloud radar is much more robust.

    FSD rewrite will go out on Oct 20 to limited beta

    I think the rewrite will bring enhanced L2. Elon has suggested the Dojo will be needed to tune it, and that is a year away. This will happen about the time HW4 arrives. I believe at this time they will also enhance the radar. The number of points an automotive radar can see, has been...

    How often do you have to relogin to the Tesla app?

    You mean when the app updates? That is the only time I notice it.

    Just tested in my SR+. Unfortunately the Canadian version is limited to the posted speed limit, or about 20% below the flow of traffic in my area. I like the enhanced screen indication of the traffic light colors. they really glow now. You can acknowledge that you want to proceed through the...

    Tesla Fremont reopening

    Two outstanding issues as I understand it. 1) How are the employees getting to work, and dealing with the risk of transit and busses. 2) Tesla had a plan with common procedures at all it’s facilities. County officials wanted something specific to only this location. I have the impression...

    Home Charging for Two Teslas

    I use two JuiceBox Pro 40, off one 240 VAC 40 AMP feed with 2 14-50 outlets. They load share quite nicely for two EVs. One TM3 and one Nissan Leaf. A third 15 amp outlet off the same feed supplies a built in electric 240 VAC pressure washer.

    Was just offered 2020.8.3....

    Moved from 8.2 to 12.5 two days ago. Seems 12.5 has become the standard now, though features enabled seems different from country to country.

    Was just offered 2020.8.3....

    So you went from the 2020.8 stream of updates, to the 2020.12 stream. These two seemed to be running in parallel for a while. Hopefully this suggests they are now merging.

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    It’s not just up to Tesla. Local government, property owners and utilities are all involved. Roadblocks can come up from any of those. They have many target areas, where they just can’t resolve things with those third parties and a way that makes sense and is fiscally responsible. Got the...
