    Navigate on Autopilot is Useless (2018.42.3)

    Please ignore the people here who like to kneejerk fanboy and don't know who you are. Those of us who do know your pedigree, take your feedback very very seriously. Ughhhhh much of this totally jives with my experience. Phantom braking. Oh-god-the-phantom-braking. Phantom lane change...

    Dashcam paused, won’t un-pause

    Yes to literally all of this. Grey x, "something is wrong with the drive," repairing it makes it work, lots of other files on the drive, etc. Expecting it to fail again now, since that seems to be the pattern. Not fully baked beta, it seems.

    Rear view camera - v9.0

    Ugh, count me in as someone who left the camera up on top all the time. I usually have camera on top, nav on bottom, and the muscle memory from 3 years of driving a Tesla with that config is going to be hard to break. I use my mirrors, but I just like to triple check my camera before I change...

    Software Update 2018.39.5 a1c2332 (first 9.0 release)

    Man. That makes me feel so much better. Thanks for that correction. I read that absolutely as the Full Self-Driving option. Phew.

    Software Update 2018.39.5 a1c2332 (first 9.0 release)

    So blindspot monitoring is limited to FSD cars only? Ugh... I would've added that to my lease if I knew that was coming. Now my only option is a $5,000 "upgrade" on a lease. Great.

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    Thanks for these! Can you tell me how high you can pull the camera up? Does it stay relatively far up the screen?

    Software Update 2018.39 4a3910f (plus other v9.0 early access builds)

    Thanks for putting these together! Can I ask if it's at ALL possible to "pin" camera to the top of the screen? I have a feeling I'm going to go nuts if I can't...

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    Just to close the loop on this, I've logged into my US Bank account and been presented with: So, mission accomplished, I presume! Now I just feel like an idiot, because while I had my center console removed, I think I left the leather side panels in the car and it's been removed from the...

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    Well, here's my loyalty advisor: "Been meaning to email you. Can you send me a copy for 9/15 bill and we can pay that one for you. We should automatically close it out but just in case it does not process in time." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Series 1 HPWC issues with 2018 model S

    I'm running into this problem. New 2018 P100D throws a "charge cable fault" error when charging ends, which, at least it charges? But this causes it to not stay topped off, and to require me to manually reset every time, and if the charge starts and is interrupted for some reason, it obviously...

    250 miles on AP 2 initial impressions

    I'm wondering if I'm just hypersensitive to a few of these differences. It doesn't feel like sensor/alignment issues as much as differences in how it manages certain scenarios. I think it's best to withhold judgment until v9 anyway, since that's supposed to be such a big step forward.

    250 miles on AP 2 initial impressions

    So I had that thought, but Waze had the right speed limit. Obviously could be using a different db. Just disappointing to take steps back like that.

    250 miles on AP 2 initial impressions

    I know this is always being discussed ad infinitum here, but just thought I'd start a thread detailing my own experiences with the most recent update's AP 2 (2018.34.1 3dd3072) coming from my P90D with AP 1.0. It is squirrely af. I don't trust it as much, so far Hews too close to the edge of...

    Definitive S Refresh Front Plate Bracket Removal

    Oh lordy, okay, just did this on my new 2018 Model S and what fun. The pliers struggled so I ended up using them closed to twist from one of the pentalobe edges, and that worked. My outer painted holder was screwed into the black mount that is double sided taped onto the car, so I had to remove...

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    I'll insist, accurately, that they told me they'd be recapturing the car and not to worry about it over and over. The point here is that there won't be an AutoVIN inspection if Tesla buys the car back for them to remarket, which was the prescribed intent to me. And I mean, they communicated...

    My lease was to end in December. New build, new lease. Will do. They're internet famous, too!

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    Okay, so I took delivery yesterday and let me just say that it was... comical. They have no idea what they're doing on the lease return. Like, none. They barely understood it was a US Bank lease. They didn't even look at the damn car. I asked if there was going to be an inspection "you know...

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    Mine's US Bank. No idea on the inspection. They've implied it's going to be a "bring the old one in and drive off in the new" sort of thing, but I haven't spoken with my actual delivery specialist yet, just the scheduler, and the loyalty rep... I would hope I get a call on those details tomorrow...

    Tesla offered early lease end opportunity

    Just to chime in, we got this offer with leases ending in December, and since both myself and my partner are in mileage penalty already decided to take them up on it. My order was confirmed 8/21, and I'm taking delivery 9/12. New, not inventory. P100D. Pretty impressed how quickly this one was...

    Three weeks, order to delivery!

    We got the offer to take early lease exits (ours are up in December) and took it, since we're over on miles anyway. Order confirmed August 21st, just called to schedule taking delivery on September 12th. Not too shabby! P100D MS, red multi-coat, grey 19" wheels, EAP, spoiler, white/carbon int...

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    Tesla has now added the same manual disclaimer about limiting performance to the ORDER page for performance cars on the design studio, which is worrying because the only performance car you can configure is the P100D... which we're expecting is excluded from this limitation...

    New firmware release 12-10-2016

    Wow... I can't quite reconcile how AP2 cars were shipped without auto headlights and auto screen dimming... or side collision, for that matter. They still have ultrasonics, right? I guess if they're merging that data with the side cameras, sure, but fall back on just the sensors otherwise. But...

    Dude, this is amazing. I mean, really fantastic. I've been following from the very beginning and just figured it'd be cool to see one torn down and anything else would be gravy, but holy *sugar*, you got it driving! Absolutely incredible. I lack the patience, technical knowledge, automotive...

    8.0 TACC on exit ramps no longer adjusts speed

    That's not how any of this works. "Beta" isn't code for "we can be sloppy about how we degrade existing functionality." There is a tacit understanding that they're asking users to learn how the system operates, and its limitations, so that they can know when to rely on it and when they'll need...

    8.0 TACC on exit ramps no longer adjusts speed

    As I mentioned in my post, this is a regression. The car used to do this reliably, as of 7.1. It is no longer doing this reliably. Although, important to note: it behaved correctly on my way home tonight. Trying to figure out why it didn't on my way into work when it normally does. Also, this...

    8.0 TACC on exit ramps no longer adjusts speed

    Thanks for confirming. It's pretty dangerous to change the way I was used to the car working, and I use TACC to gently follow someone on an off-ramp, but if they leave the lane, off I go. Ugh. Regressions!

    8.0 TACC on exit ramps no longer adjusts speed

    7.1 introduced a feature that, if you were in the far right lane and had your right blinker on, TACC would slow you down coming up an off-ramp. This was really nice because you could let the car slow you down without having to do a TACC disable/control takeover that felt less graceful. That...

    Firmware 8.0

    Annnnnnnd, I just got an update available notice. (12:20am PST, on wifi.) I was already on the most recent security update, so here's hoping! Will probably be awake when it finishes.

    Firmware 8.0

    I was even sadder. I creeped into my SvC's parking lot and attempted to get it to connect to the SvC wifi, but it wouldn't connect. One of their doors was open and I was right outside, too. Sigh.

    Audio Change in 2.36.31?

    I concur that a reboot might make the most sense. It's highly unlikely they did anything else in 2.36.31 (and I haven't personally noticed any difference, FWIW), since it was 1) a security fix, and 2) on the eve of a massive catch-all update. No reason to push a change to sound balancing in a...

    Firmware 8.0

    *sugar*, that's definitely a possibility. In fact, you're almost certainly correct, since we know for a fact that the car is downloading map tiles, since you can observe that occurring. I guess I hadn't thought about how that means they can't abstract the labeling away, which means you can't...

    Firmware 8.0

    Did they fix the vexing design "decision" to rotate fixed point labels stupidly instead of fixing them along the x-axis? (Street names always flow along the streets, but POI labels should stay horizontal no matter the rotation, like they do on Google Maps on your phone.) Any changes or...

    Any update to the guts of the touchscreen?

    I respectfully disagree. There's a lot to be said for hardware acceleration of page renders/canvas drawing in the browser, and if they're not able to take advantage of that because of the hardware they're using, that would go a long way toward explaining the abysmal browser performance when the...

    P100D, 760HP and Performance Tests

    This... does not surprise me. It feels like the MobileEye separation might have been a bit unexpected in comparison with how it was presented, and coupled with the point cloud/several-cars-ahead radar improvements announced, it looks like the effort to squeeze more functionality out of the...

    Blind spot assist in Version 8

    Per Tesla's blog post about AP: I know that's referring to AP-based alerts, but I'm really hoping they do something similar like flash the instrument panel when you change lanes. Early leaks of 7.0 showed a red car in your blind spot on the interface, but I'm guessing they determined the U/S...

    Autopilot automatically slows in curves?

    Erm, neither of these are quite right, I don't think. I'm almost positive the curve-aware slowdown component in AP is largely fed from the onboard high fidelity mapping data. I'm almost positive it isn't parsing either yellow speed limit signs (you don't see the interface update with those new...

    Autopilot performance has degraded in 2.28.19 vs 2.20.30 - my imagination???

    I'm not sure what version I'm on right now but AP has been really shady on regular routes that have previously caused no problems. I don't really trust it right now. It's wandering a lot, edging the left line on a straightaway with clear visibility, bailing out of curves it never had problems...

    HOT door handles

    I'm sorry but I really don't get this issue. It was 47°C here today. The handles are hot, sure, but you can just flick them quickly enough with your bare hand such that it pops the door solenoid open, and then open the door. That's my strategy, anyway.

    Uber driving my P90D

    There's a definite coverage gap: Uber's comprehensive/collision maxes out at $50k I believe, though their liability limits are up to $1M, and $1M uninsured/underinsured, so that part's good. But on the vehicle itself, you definitely need to have other insurance covering you.

    Uber driving my P90D

    Wait, what? Really? Uber states they're not taking new Black "partners" right now for PHX, so it might be moot, but I'll check with customer service. I've noticed basically 1:1 overlap between Black & Select in the pax app, which means Black drivers are just willing (or forced) to accept Select...

    Uber driving my P90D

    Ha, that sums it up perfectly. My reference to chipping away at my monthly payment was tongue-in-cheek. Of course I'm not doing this for the money. It nets out to roughly $15-$20/hr for UberX. But I'm a social guy and when my wife is working a weekend day and I'm home just watching TV, I figured...

    Software updates paused?

    This is almost certainly because they're focused on the beta for 8.0 as they move forward with prepping that for wide release.

    Uber driving my P90D

    It's kind of all about reading the room, right? I'd only launch anyone explicitly excited at the prospect. Pulling 1.1g can definitely feel unpleasant, and I always tell friends to put their heads back against the headrest when I launch them, which helps.

    Uber driving my P90D

    It's actually a corporate lease with robust commercial insurance, which covers allllllll sorts of fun. Uber then provides additional significant liability insurance (up to $1M, though secondary to a commercial insurance policy) and comprehensive and collision overage as well.
