    2021.44.5 Uneven Tire Wear Detection

    It's a dang good thing there is no screen page to monitor the wear in real time. OMG, which page to stare at- the revolutions, the pressure, or the wh/mi.? Was that a stop sign?

    New Navigation Map (NA-2021.44-13555)

    After installing 44.30.7 I noticed I had a different look to the maps near my house. They changed from what I would guess was early April to early August. The version number, however, was still the same- 2020.48-12628. Summertime definitely looks better. I think they do things like this just to...

    Poll on V11 interface

    The only number I look at when navigating somewhere that is a tight fit for range is the estimated SOC at destination. If that number starts to decrease unacceptably then I know I will have to make changes in speed, Hvac, or route if possible. If it holds up, then I can enjoy myself and drive...

    Where did tire pressure go? V11 Model 3

    If you have to keep your eyes on the road, not the screen, then why do you want to watch your tire pressures? You will get a warning if any are low.

    Sorry, I actually like the new UI :)

    I sure wish the car had a system to monitor the tire pressures and warn me if any get low. Then I wouldn’t have to watch that tire pressure page all the time.

    Why do our cars have oil pumps?

    Hey Andy. Did you ever have any indications of a problem other than a message? Like noises or vibrations? I get a high pitched screeching sound when the car/battery is pretty cold and it goes into the waste heat mode to warm the battery, such as when starting to charge or cabin pre-heat. But no...

    2021.36 Audio not working correctly

    https://www.mountainpassperformance.com/tesla-model-3-hard-reset/ Speaking of resets, I do this about twice a year just on principle.

    Have to re- select audio every start up

    I have found that if I don’t “surprise” my locked car by trying to open the door without the app or blu-tooth running and connected that the audio will almost always return to where it was.

    new android phone, app has to be open for phone key to work

    “Force closed”?? The app needs to be actively running on the iPhone screen, or running in the background to unlock and open the door with the door handle. One or the other. That does not mean that Background App Refresh needs to be turned on. I have that turned off in my general settings for all...

    new android phone, app has to be open for phone key to work

    I have had Location Services and Background App Refresh on my iPhone turned off for years. Everything about the Tesla app works just fine, except summon, which needs location. Try it and save some phone juice.

    The tap is back with 24.4.

    2021.12.25.10 Is replacing 2021.12.25.7

    I disabled WI-Fi and several months later the car downloaded new software over cellular by itself. Once it’s downloaded, the only way to get rid of the prompt is to manually do it on the touchscreen or put the car in gear. No big deal.

    2021.12.25.10 Is replacing 2021.12.25.7

    Yes, or an even newer one. A while back I skipped several “revisions”. I quit calling them upgrades. If 25.7 downloads, just don’t install it. It will eventually get kicked out and replaced.

    I wish the Model 3 had the new Model S steering wheel

    I wish I was 21 again.
