    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    I'm just the same with my left arm - in a RHD country. I have always been very right handed but a stroke 18m ago has accentuated the difficulties. Touch screen use is quite iffy - hitting the correct place even when stationary is problematic - and not helped by the fact that it seems that the...

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    My car will probably last me out but if not I will buy an EV but not a Tesla which has no stalks etc. I don't live in the States so have to indicate during opposite turns frequently and being right-handed find the touchscreen very difficult.

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    I have no idea what the various versions do or what capability they have - the update numbering system is opaque. Mostly the rel notes just say "Minor bug fixes" or something about video games. Having spent a lifetime in aviation it's disturbing to have such a complex system in the wild but with...

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    Here in Australia my MS is at 2024.4.8.7 so obviously there must be some unit working at least on RHD with the NSW Australian road rules. Given that so-called "FSD" is unlikely to be autonomous, only level 3 or thereabouts - ie. a "driver aid" - I can't see how Tesla can shy away from delivering...

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    And for the RHD cars? Are there separate teams dealing with the dozens of different countries' road laws, quite apart from the driving seat position?

    Regen braking MS

    Does anyone have the real figures on how much electricity is actually recovered during regen? I've seen 80% of the kinetic energy but I've also seen 50%! And on the same subject, do the continual spurts of regen electricity impinge on the battery longevity - or is that something no-one has...

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    Interesting - is that a rumour or fact?

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I think it's deliberately misleading. Obviously, speed is the biggest factor in deaths/injuries in accidents when they happen. Whether speed CAUSES more accidents in the list of causes is entirely different but I think the authorities like to make it a primary cause, which it isn't.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    No, I'm really confused. The FSD beta that's being run in the States is on numerous YouTube videos. My S came up with 2023.44.30.6 a day or two ago with the Navigate on autopilot (beta) Yes/No button which I've just realised isn't FSD. You'll have to excuse me - I had my 81st birthday yesterday...

    What is 12v battery replacement cost

    This is one of those things that's neither right nor wrong - until your decision goes belly up! My S is nearly four years old and in view of the fact that I'm 150m away from the only viable SC and they don't do roving services here and since I spent Xmas with family only a few miles from the SC...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I went to 2023.44.30.6 yesterday and I'm confused: it asks whether I want to use beta FSD but I thought that was only in the US?

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    I will grovel in apology. However I only clicked on an emailed link that said there was a reply to a thread I was "watching" - from several centuries ago! - and I didn't look further.

    Tesla opening up the Supercharger network in Australia to other brand EVs.

    I've seen several other type issues at Heatherbrae. yesterday with most of the 6 units full an "other make" - IIRC a mini? attempted to make it but the car socket was the wrong side and the cable too short. The owner was apparently unable to make it to destination. They said they had the Tesla...

    That's about my read on it, too! Actually I've emailed the Chatswood SC and asked if they keep the appropriate battery in stock.

    Model S 12v battery

    My S is 3 1/2 years old and I live North of Newcastle so fitting a replacement 12v battery would be problematic. Anyone know of the supply situation from the Sydney SCs? I'll be going down for a few days over Christmas and am wondering if it's worth doing a preemptive replacement on the...

    Weird indications.....

    I posted this on the US Model S thread last week - anyone add comments or help? >> 2020 Model S Raven. During a 30 mile drive today I had the following: Several times the instrument panel showed "Model S" in 1" high font and the whole row of icons in the top right (RHD BTW) lit up for ten...

    I was about to start a new thread but it seems there are many here who know the car so.... 2020 Raven model S with the OEM Michelin 19" rubber. I've only done 16000 miles and have looked at the way the tires have fared today - pretty much worn and I am going to get them checked. I am a very...

    M3 Refresh - Are Indicator buttons really poor design?

    You probably haven't encountered any Magic Roundabouts in CA but they are breeding in the UK.

    Tip - Cancel indicators by indicating “again”

    All I do know about the blinker stuffup on the S with FSD (yes, I know....) is that the passenger seat is pretty damp most days. SWMBO forbids me to plug in the autopilot because of (a) continuing - and getting worse - phantom brakings and (b) the sudden lunge when it changes lanes. Then there's...

    M3 Refresh - Are Indicator buttons really poor design?

    It's a truly awful design and indicative of the minimalist-regardless-of-ergonomics mindset. I've been banging on about it on other forums since the refresh before last but it falls on deaf American ears. As you say, the unfortunate fact that many people don't indicate correctly especially on...

    GPS is off position

    There are several different scenarios regarding GPS indication offsets - extended loss of signal is the more obvious example but the display offset in the case of your deliberate divergence from the programmed route (driving away from the "magenta line")is not the GPS per se but how the receiver...

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    Merry Christmas! 2020 Model X DEAD .... Tried Lots of things, but maybe not all, any help

    Well, roadside assist came to the rescue - not physically since I'm well outside their envelope - I asked for a service appointment as a starter and they booked me into the nearest SC in two days' time. Since the car was dead and the SC is a couple of hundred miles away they diagnosed a software...

    Help required! 2020Model S dead

    Thanks for the replies: Before playing with the main contactor and the 12v connection - since the bits like the handles and boot worked fine I thought I'd try roadside assist - which I hate both because I rarely use my mobile - only one bar here - and find the "keys" far too small to type with...
