    Tesla.com - "Transitioning to Tesla Vision"

    You know that feature where as you approach a wall while parking (like in a garage or at the side of a building or a Supercharger) and you get the on-screen measurement showing the distance between the car and the wall/object... Does that rely on the radar or is there another sensor used for...

    Driver Experience Essay - Uber and Lyft with a Tesla Model 3

    Most riders are typically above a 4 - anything below a 4 will cause me to consider declining the ride (and negatively impacting my Acceptance Rate), especially if they're more than a couple minutes away. You can see tips in the ride history, and if you remember something about the ride then you...

    Driver Experience Essay - Uber and Lyft with a Tesla Model 3

    I've had some nice / interesting / in-depth discussions with passengers. Maybe they appreciated the ability to converse with someone with - but if they did, not enough to tip for it. I guess in short my advice @BobDole is that if you're driving to show off the car, or get out of the house, or...

    Driver Experience Essay - Uber and Lyft with a Tesla Model 3

    Glad you enjoyed it! Maybe I was naive about the frequency of tipping when I got into it, but I was certainly surprised by the rarity. I'm in the Princeton area.

    Driver Experience Essay - Uber and Lyft with a Tesla Model 3

    I wrote the below throughout 2019 and the first few months of 2020. When the pandemic hit in March 2020 I stopped rideshare (both as a driver and rider) and am now considering whether to get back into it once I'm vaccinated. Hope you find the essay below interesting (or helpful if you're...

    Supercharger - Joplin, MO - 5002 S Main St

    Thanks @bwalker5 and @MorrisonHiker Interesting history on this site... seems at one point there was hope of reviving a hotel of some sort here, but apparently over the years the renovation plan was abandoned. And those posts about the nails/screws... will avoid if I can.

    Supercharger - Joplin, MO - 5002 S Main St

    May be traveling through Joplin area on an upcoming road trip and had to ask... what's the issue with the older/existing site that makes it creepy?

    Model 3: Collision repair location and cost in central NJ

    I’ve used Coleman twice, the second time for pretty extensive repairs after a deer strike earlier this year. They were excellent both times and at least in my case did a great job of collaborating/negotiating with the insurance company to get everything covered so I paid nothing but my...

    Charger at Princeton Service Station?

    The Princeton SC seems to be discouraging use at least (though I haven't talked to anyone there about it) as several times when I've exited that way after picking up Starbucks at Mercer Mall the end of the SC parking lot where the chargers are has been blocked by orange cones. Seems like maybe...

    Volta Chargers in Nassau Park Shopping Center, Princeton NJ

    Charged today at the Best Buy-side... the one towards Five Below does not seem to be activated yet, but the one towards Best Buy gave out 32A / 7kw.

    Volta Chargers in Nassau Park Shopping Center, Princeton NJ

    I had looked at PlugShare and didn't see them, and after seeing your post I looked more deeply into PlugShare and realized I didn't have the Volta network enabled for display. Yeah, I really hope that's the case. My concern was they're prime parking near a few stores and people might...

    Volta Chargers in Nassau Park Shopping Center, Princeton NJ

    There are pairs of Volta chargers in two spots in Nassau Park - a set near Dick's Sporting Goods / Panera, and a set near Best Buy (if I recall correctly). I wasn't aware of Volta before I saw these, but they're an ad-supported free charging network that, per their website, started in Hawaii. I...

    Supercharger - Springfield, MO

    Interesting to see the history of the development and opening of the site in this thread. I've charged there a couple times over the past week and once hit the full 150kw so it seems to be operating fine. Also wanted to mention the amenities and perks at this location: there is a Macadoodle's...

    Supercharge account history "no charge" (not referral miles, paid other places)

    Thank you @user212_nr , much appreciated. Still curious why these specific ones are free (covered by the state) while others aren't, but at least it's good to know it wasn't an error or something.

    Supercharge account history "no charge" (not referral miles, paid other places)

    Anyone know why this supercharging session appears as "no charge" in my account history? I don't recall specifically but I thought on the in-car nav it showed a cost-per-kwh when navigating there, and I thought during charging there was a $ tally running on the battery screen. As you can see...
