    'Voice Commands' in latest 2020.4.1

    Agree with the others. Worked well before the update. Useless now. I hope Tesla pushes out another firmware update soon.

    Who in Maryland has applied for the Pepco Time of Use Discounted EV Charging?

    Hi I have been part of this program since 2015. Something strange happened in the last few months. I have a dedicated charger and a separate meter. In September, 2018 I used 236 kw and paid $28.76. In April 2019, I used 258kw and was charged $26.11. By September, I used 270 kw and the Bill went...

    Falcon Heavy - 7&8 Reuse - Elon's Roadster Demo - LC-39A

    For those of us with AP2.5, we can sympathize that Starman is no longer in the correct orbit

    2018.2 0eddd23 detected

    Has anyone seen an improvement in the side collision avoidance (shadows on the right and left of the car icon on the display) It seems as if they are no better than turning your head and looking at the side mirror) The shadow literally appears when another car is at your passenger doors- not...

    Supercharger - Gaithersburg, MD

    Just stopped by and chargers are working well. IMPORTANT! Be very careful pulling into the stations. While it is great to front into the stations, there is a line of cars across from them that make it hard to make a wide arc into the spots. And the stations are close together. I foresee a...

    Supercharger - Gaithersburg, MD

    Hoo ray! I'll see you all there at some point. BTW, the Montgomery Mall Superchargers have been removed.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Ordered my MS on 9/23 with a EOQ deal. The car was already built and was awaiting paint. I live in Maryland and part of the deal was that the car would be delivered to my home rather than the SC which is only 10 miles away. Question? Why are they doing this? Does it have something to do...

    2014 MS 85 Upgrading to 2017 100D

    Thanks, Bob. The parking sensor issue was a main reason for the purchase. I have seen so many cars at the body shop with scrapes on the side and right rear quarter panel. My assumption was that the older rear sensors didn't pick up the obstacle before it was too late. Sorry to hear about the...

    2014 MS 85 Upgrading to 2017 100D

    So I pulled the trigger last weekend and bought a new MS. For those of you who have upgraded from older models, I have a few questions: 1. Since I have never had autopilot anything, what would be your top tips on properly using AP 2.5? 2. How would you compare the sensor configuration with...

    8.0. 2.50.185 installed last night - release notes

    Does anyone know when they will push out the firmware update that corrects the volume control terminating a phone call and where streaming stations change by themselves? I would rather have these corrections than silly Easter eggs

    Adjusting Volume Wheel Drops Call

    The software update introduced a few new bugs. -Dropping calls when adjusting the volume wheel. -Internet radio stations mysteriously changing by themselves -Dropping internet stream and the busy symbol going round and round. Service says it is happening on all models with 8.0 installed. Not...

    Charging DC to Rehoboth Beach Del

    Thanks for the quick response. Do you know if the Hyatt chargers are available for those not staying at the Hyatt?

    Charging DC to Rehoboth Beach Del

    Any tips on charging on a round trip DC to Rehoboth? Looks like the only Supercharger is in Salisbury, which is out of the way. Thanks.

    Bethesda Maryland Tesla Owners "Club" I know you're out there

    Hi Based on the number of Teslas I see in my town, there are dozens of owners in this area. If anyone is interested in having an informal get together on a Saturday morning, please let me know. I'll try to put something together in the next 30 days.

    Elon "About to end range anxiety"

    Re: Trip planner and range assurance. For those of you who have taken trips using this feature, how much range is left after you reach your destination? Most people reach their destination, drive around at their destination and then return. If your destination isn't near a supercharger, it...

    Elon "About to end range anxiety"

    Ok. Here's the article about Tesla's charging patents from the June, 2014 AutoBlog. I believe that some of this has already been employed i.e. if you're a local, the maximum rate of charge at your nearby SC will be 60 kw. As reported on some other threads Tesla has already started to limit...

    Elon "About to end range anxiety"

    I'm hoping that it's a reduction in charge time at level 2 chargers. What we don't need is more owners lining up to use Superchargers on long trips. If I recall correctly, Tesla filed a patent about a year ago dealing with charging technology. It might prevent locals from hogging superchargers...

    Model S Software/Firmware wishlist

    A few more wishes: 1. Charge setting which COMPLETES at a certain time. This is already available on the Leaf so that both the interior and battery are heated prior to departing. 2. Press and hold feature so that the icons at the top of the touch screen can be reorderd as desired. 3. Press and...

    ICEd Superchargers - Next Steps

    Could someone with graphic arts skills post an ICE warning that looks like an official traffic/parking citation? Make it editable so that the user can type the name of their city or town on the thing so that it confuses that heck out of the ICEr

    Implementing the Multi-State ZEV Action Plan

    Ok. Great ideas here. But I'm sure that someone smarter than me can draft a letter that we can send to the Governors and Legislators of the States that have approved the ZEV action plan to encourage speedy implementation. Also, draft a letter to the States that have not yet signed on to the...

    Multi-State ZEV Action Plan

    We're getting there, folks. Eight States, including Maryland, have announced a plan to encourage 3.3 million ZEVs by 2025. Here is a link to the Maryland plan, which is similar to the other States. Score one for our side. Now, if they only could put 10x more Superchargers out there...

    Tesla friendly web pages

    I have favorited the Tesla specific Plugshare page and the cute Valet and Peacemaker pages. However, I was looking for other pages MS users refer to on a regular basis. It looks like Waze and Trapster are not available to view. Are any other speed camera pages available that make use of the...

    WIFI while parked--How important is it?

    The wifi in my house doesn't extend to my detached garage. I can buy a range extender or leave the car outside of the garage where the signal is stronger. Aside from downloading software updates, are there other reasons why having the stronger wifi signal is useful when the car is parked...

    Day One- A report on my first 24 hours with the Model S

    Thanks for your help on #11. Now, how do I remove the nick in the clear coat from the trunk lid bumping into my garage door! Everyone on this forum is awesome!

    Day One- A report on my first 24 hours with the Model S

    I thought that I would spend a few minutes to thank everyone on the forums and describe my delivery and early experience with the Model S. Here goes: 1. I arrived at my service center promptly at the scheduled noon appointment and my DS was waiting for me outside. She (my MS) was waiting for...

    Center Console Insert

    Love it! And thanks for the pic WeazL. I gotta think that some injection molding factory in the Far East has been patiently waiting for Tesla's order to arrive. Better yet, if you have a great design and a 3D printer, you can whip one up by tomorrow!:smile:

    Center Console Insert

    While we MS owners are patiently awaiting the CCI (what's taking them so long?), what are you doing in the meantime? Where do you hide your "stuff". I'm looking for an idea that is as classy as the car. Photos of your work around would be appreciated. Thanks.

    60kw vs. 85kw- Ok, you guys win

    I thought that I would post this as many people might be having the same dilemma as I did about how much battery capacity they need. I ordered my MS and am expecting delivery mid May. I originally thought the 60kw would be sufficient. I'm a former Leaf owner and range anxiety was a constant...

    What's not to like about the model S?

    Valet mode that locks the frunk, limits the maximum speed and displays a message that the car is being monitored!

    Regen and rear end collisions

    I spoke with my Xpel guy today and he said that he has seen at least 5 rear end collisions on the Model S with people using maximum regen. Does anyone know if this is common?

    Detailed pictures of installed, official center console!

    Also patiently awaiting my console, but not getting my car until mid May. Question? Why do you think it is taking so long to fabricate these? Another question? If you have come up with an interim solution for storing your "stuff" can you post a picture? Thanks.

    Help deciding 60kw or 85kw

    60 kw vs 85 kw Model S I am also upgrading from a Leaf to a Tesla due to range anxiety. Also considering a 60kw model. Here are a few facts on my driving: 1. Most of my daily driving is under 100 miles. Rarely would I exceed 150 miles in a day. 2. I have a level 2 40 amp charging station...
