    Possible to have rear camera & music windows on main screen w/ 9.0?

    It looks like maybe the map *has* to be up on half of the screen. So I’m assuming that means you can’t split the screen between just the rear view camera and music, for example. Is that right? Wife wants camera & music. Thanks, Rob

    Liftgate handle not working, Model X

    I can no longer open my 2 month old car manually from the back. Lift gate works fine from the remote and from the car interior screen but exterior handle stopped working.

    Anybody have rear USB's that have never worked?

    Hey Folks, My car came with rear USB's that didn't work. I've got a terrific Tesla ranger who has come by twice to fix them, but still no good. The first delay was for a part from Tesla, but now it seems like it's a wiring problem. So.... I'm curious whether anyone else has had a similar...

    Need software/maps update to see new Superchargers?

    I'm excited about a new Supercharger going into Charleston, WV. Should be up and running in early May. Will it immediately start showing up on the car's map or does it take a software and/or maps update to show? Thanks, Rob

    Hey, I'm meeting with an electrician today to talk over installing an outdoor NEMA 14-50 outlet for charging my Model S. It'll either be completely out in the open or partially covered by the edge of a car port. Either way, it'll get a lot of wind/rain because we're just a few hundred feet...

    Hey, I just ordered an HPWC and I'll be using it outside (we don't have a garage).
