    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    Never say never. This precursor gull wing was bought new in 1955 for $7,295 & sold in 2012 for $4.62m.

    Current rates of atmospheric CO2 increase are not “natural”

    One of the fundamental issues is the low relative proportion of the population that are scientifically literate. An education revolution is urgently needed but even substantive discussion on mere curriculum becomes mired in partisan politics. Indifference to academic principles and complete...

    Don’t get locked out without the app!

    Or if you’ve got an Apple Watch get Remote S. Great app either way - you can Siri shortcuts with it too.

    Living in constant fear of v9....

    Maybe I’m the template of how they’re going to force updates then? My IC has gone all kandinsky. So I called service & a few hours later they called back after diagnostics & said I have an ancient version 2018.18.2 - (no nags) - and that I need to update. Nag apocalypse lol

    Australia government supports for EVs

    I believe you know what you’re talking about, in contrast to those who believe that academia must have collectively got this all wrong or has perpetrated the grandest of all frauds.

    'Supercharging' cheaper than fuel...

    Also not truth in advertising - there’s fairly recent research into the social cost including the environmental cost - at least another $1.00 per litre. So figure the real total is more than $2.50 per litre. Thinking about it logically it’s much more than that when you consider the value of a...

    Australia government supports for EVs

    Speaking not just EV’s but in the wider area of future transport & energy, I know what you mean and as a phrase quite accurate although jokes are meant to be funny. And these clowns aren’t. Politicians left or right that don’t govern for the benefit of future generations are - in reality -...

    Superchargers in Australia

    Ray forgot to mention he’s a 6 foot 3 inch black belt :)

    Wall Connector not charging car

    I suspect it’s more to do with the size of the car which wouldn’t fit in the convict era garage. So the HPWC went on an exterior wall under a carport in the driveway - exposed to harbourside corrosion normally experienced by yachts. Yet still allegedly suitable for outdoor use.

    Wall Connector not charging car

    At some point the warranty became 12 months regardless. I had 2 replaced under the original warranty but they’re certainly not built for long life apparently. I’m currently building a garage and am considering just a simple 3 phase outlet so I can use my Juice Booster 2 instead of a HPWC.

    3 Phase HPWC vs Juice Buster2/Maxi Charger, etc. for traveling?

    3 phase yes absolutely no doubt about it and will still be the case, for many remote places, for years to come. For example, I’d like to return to Quilpie and Birdsville more than a decade after my last visit, this time by road and it’s not looking too hopeful right now for anything apart from...

    Somethings I dont like about the "S"

    You could buy a Porsche Taycan...in 2020...maybe...despite All Our Patent Are Belong To You

    Telsa puts Australia last...

    In Aus, it’s likely it’s all that new fandangled voodoo magic that’ll make them balk. I had a very well known ‘regulator’ walk in front of my car looking at it in totally visible, obvious & unmistakable disgust.

    Browser on V9 in Australia

    Not sure but - for me on AP1 - the update’s main feature is Missile Command? I’m sure there was something else. Missile Command vs No Nags...gee I dunno lol

    Model S Navigation

    Yes it’s all about taking in the backroads sometimes. If you’re committed to the experience, then I suggest Waze, then go to Settings, Navigation - Avoid toll roads, Avoid motorways & Allow Unpaved roads. A sure way to find the scenic route. Tesla nav needs a simple Scenic Route button.
