    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Today I had two good drives with Full self driving. I turned off Automatic emergency breaking, Obstacle-aware Acceleration, Forward Collision Warning and Emergency Lane Departure Avoidance and the car no longer did any Phantom breaking or strange swerving off the road. It seems like Full self...

    Tesla’s FSD Beta 10.3 Coming This Friday 10-22-2021

    I was at 99% for 3 days in my 2020 model X, downloaded 10.3 at 4 am, went for my first drive at 5. It drives like a 14 year old you are teaching, can do some unexpected moves. You have to keep you foot on the accelerator to keep the phantom breaking under control and hold the wheel to prevent...

    I just downloaded 2020.48.12.1 and went for a test drive, no FSD beta yet.

    2020.12.6 update...????

    On secondary roads, you can use the pedal to make the car go 5 mph over the limit and it will still auto steer. It is a good idea to always have your foot hovering over the accelerator pedal anyway, just so you are ready to take over if the car slows for no reason or if you need to stop...

    2020.12.6 update...????

    I updated to 2020.12.6 and did a test drive. It won't go 5 over while on autopilot, just the speed limit. It notifies you 500 feet from a red light that it is slowing then stops very comfortably. When the light turns green, it doesn't start on it's own, but goes when you touch the accelerator or...

    Vendor DRIVE Electric for Tesla, an app for Samsung watches (Tizen)

    I installed this on my Galaxy watch. No problems logging in. Controls almost everything that I could control with my phone except summon. Very convenient.

    Less regen after new software

    I have two model S's and a new X. The new X and the 2017 S both on 2020.4.1 have this problem with almost no regen. The 2015 model S still has normal regen, but it is still on 2019.40.2.3. I would rather have the regen back, I think it is safer to drive with one petal than to have to go back to...

    My first flat tire - UI fail...

    I haven't used a jack yet. I got a plug kit from Walmart. Pliers are a good idea and a razor blade or scissors to cut the extra plug that is sticking out. You need a blanket or plastic to kneel on so you don't get dirty. A rain jacket with a hood is a good idea because it is always raining when...

    Rear View mirror question

    I installed the camera under the model X spoiler which keeps it dry when it rains or snows and it stays cleaner than the license plate area because it is farther off the ground. I drove home in the rain tonight and the Tesla camera picture was blocked by water drops, this camera was dry. All...

    My first flat tire - UI fail...

    After I got a flat tire in my first Tesla, a passerby with a plug kit and a 12 volt inflator fixed my tire and got me going. As soon as I got home, I bought plug kits and inflators for all my cars and taught my wife and kids how to use them. I've now had three more flats in different cars and...

    How to open both Falcon Wing doors at the same time from the key?

    I just plan ahead and open one, then open the other 2 seconds later. As far as I know, there is no way to "open all" at once.

    Rear View mirror question

    I found the same problem with my new Raven model X. I couldn't see well from the rear view mirror. I think it is because the center seat headrest is in the way and the back window is too small. I bought a rear view camera/mirror dash cam which goes over the rear view mirror. I put the rear...

    Seat Height Model 3 vs Model X

    Model X is much higher off the ground than model 3. You definitely feel like you are driving in a truck. Model 3 feels like a sports car.

    Trailer towing shank for Model X ?

    The specs Tesla gives is for a 5000 pound trailer. If your trailer is lighter and well balanced, that hitch is fine.

    2020 Model X ventilated seats

    I have always had ventilated seats in all my cars, I had them in my 2017 model S and I loved them, I had them on any time the weather was not cold. My wife hated the ventilated seats, she kept the seat heater on all summer, I guess everybody is different. I just got a new Raven Model X and am...
