    Speed limit of 40 detected, missed detecting the 70; how to tell the car it is 70?

    Sometimes I wish I could do that, but I can see why Teslas don't have this option. Sooner or later someone would accidentally use CC when they meant to use TACC, then end up in an accident and blame Tesla for it.

    Age of Google Maps used by Tesla?

    The map data does not necessarily match the satellite image. The map data is updated more frequently than the satellite images. Here is an example: https://www.google.ca/maps/@45.0273255,-74.8962642,17.87z The intersection became a roundabout a few years ago. The map data correctly shows a...

    Will AP still work if have the cabin camera covered?

    I have a 2020 Model 3 with a covered camera and AP still works with 2021.32.21.

    Does the Y reduce the speed when corner is approached too fast?

    It does. Not sure how it works, but it slows down before it reaches a tight corner, so it's probably based on map data rather than an accelerometer.

    Regenerative braking on icy roads

    The car dynamically adjusts regen if senses that a wheel is about to lock up (much like ABS). You can see that on an icy road the green bar is all over the place if you suddenly take your foot off the accelerator. Obviously there is no substitute for safe driving, especially in the winter, but...

    Master thread: Model 3 Tires, Tire Sizes, Types, make / model recommendations, tire discussions, etc

    Same here, 45 psi cold. If in doubt, it's never wrong to stick with the car manufacturer's recommendation (which I believe is 42 psi).

    What is this screen and how do I get to it

    Swipe to the right right there where the window is. It shows several trip counters, all of which are self-explaining.

    Is vampire drain still a thing?

    Thanks for all the responses, that was very informative. I seem to remember that I read somewhere that the car consumes more energy if it stays plugged in after charging, even if it doesn't actually charge. I'm not sure if that's true but what @jjrandorin wrote seems to support that idea...

    Is vampire drain still a thing?

    So I had to leave my car in the garage for 14 days. There was no phone with the Tesla app nearby. When I parked the car without plugging it in, the battery was at 81%. After a week I was curious to see how the battery was holding up, so I checked with the Tesla app and it still showed a SoC of...

    Trans-Canada Drive

    I went from Eastern Ontario to Fernie, BC last summer and back to Eastern Ontario. All in all I drove 9,000 km in 14 days. Charging was never an issue, there are plenty of V3 superchargers along the Trans Canada highway. If you check plugshare, you'll even find hotels with destination chargers...

    Gen 3 Wall Charger - Power Sharing

    What is the max amps that you guys can get from the grid? I have a 2x200 Amp service in rural Canada and I can charge both our cars at the same time, cook, bake (actually I can't cook or bake, but that's not the point) and run the dryer and the water heater at the same time without issues. Your...

    What charging cables do I need?

    Actually he said "I have a 14-50 outlet installed in my garage from previous owner". Your answer is still correct though, all OP needs is the NEMA 14-50 adapter. On top of that I would probably also check the breaker and the wiring to make sure everything is sized to handle 40 Amps continuous load.
