    Trip planning software of choice

    About to make my third long road trip in my Model 3 DM/LR. So far, I've found the online AAA TripTik to provide the best routing details (including SuperChargers), but it cannot help me determine my range and which SCs I need to include. What do some of you use for trip planning that can...

    Tesla Says Cybertruck Will Be Built at New Factory in Texas

    Reminds me of when I was a boy, growing up in Texas in the 1950’s. Every Ford you saw came with this on their rear window. Wonder if Tesla will do likewise?

    TuneIn Login by scanning a QR code??

    The new TI UI is a hodge-podge mess, with users' "Favorites" broken up across different categories, but not all Favorites can be found anywhere! They have added categories (radio stations) I don't even want. Even when logged on with my TI premium account, I can't access all my Favorites. They...

    Tunein keeps logging out

    Not only does the TuneIn service keep logging me out, but when I am logged on, not all my "Favorites" are available. The new UI is complex and hard to navigate, especially while driving. Some of my Favorites are present, but broken up across various categories. There is no longer a single...

    Multi Coat Red Picture Thread

    My sweet "Amber" is now eighteen months old. Red was my only choice... all my neighbors voted and it was unanimous. I've never regretted getting a red Model 3. Hey, my first car, some fifty years ago was a red Opal Kadett! I made a month-long road trip from Maine to Texas earlier this year...

    Report: Tesla Considering Austin, Tulsa for Next U.S. Factory

    Texas has been hostile to Tesla over the years, overly restricting its operations and sales. I guess that might change. Maybe those good ol' boys in Austin finally see oil is not the wave of the future.

    Excellent Tesla Service

    Living in Maine, I have a two hour drive to our nearest SC in Peabody (North Short) Massachusetts. Other than a long dive, I've had nothing but excellent service. They have an attentive and knowledgeable Service Manager, Shawn, who takes care of us from scheduling to completion. Nice...

    Traveling in a Model 3

    I'm in the planning stages of a 5,000 mile trip to South Texas and back to Maine in the coming months, and I'm intrigued by the possibility (and cost savings) of stopping at night (Camper Mode) along Interstate Hwy rest areas and (nicer) truck stops, where I can take a shower, etc. I'd be glad...

    Tune-In Radio

    Thanks, Rince. Actually, my situation is sort of opposite. I already had a Tune-In account (for several years) and when I got the Tesla, I just signed in on the screen to my existing account. It didn't seem to recognize me; no error or anything, just nothing happened. I could use Tune-In as...

    Tune-In Radio

    I have a Tune-In Radio account and have signed in on the Tesla. Once is a great while, my "Favorites" will show up on the Tesla, but most often not. I have contacted Tune-In and they cannot account for this problem and suggested it may be something Tesla can address. When "Favorites" is...

    Latest on SentryCam with iPhone

    SentryCam is great, but hard to use, especially to view recent "events" Until Tesla provides a way of viewing camera recording on the Tesla screen, we have to rely on 3rd party apps. Recently, there has been discussion about the vulnerability of thumb drives, as opposed to small memory...

    My car ignores me all too frequently!

    Thank you, I'll give that a try.

    My car ignores me all too frequently!

    For the past few weeks, my phone key does not automatically work when I approach my car. The car asks for the card (which I refuse to give it!) I have to open the app and wake it up or press the unlock icon on the app. The same for the charging port. It won't open when I need to plug it in...

    Recommended USB drive for dashcam

    Question for iPhone (ver. 13) users. Would the Sandisk High Endurance MicroSD card work? Is there a lightening adapter for it? Does it require external power? Can it be powered via the car's USB port?

    Apps shows my car is 1/2 mile away!

    Thank you. Your point is well-taken about the garage, but the map on my car's screen is clearly showing I'm right inside my garage. The car knows it's at home, it's just not telling the app!
