    Anyone regret having a Powerwall installed?

    None. No regrets at all. Very happy with it.

    Firmware 8.5

    Actually, Q1 2019 deliveries were impressive (see Tesla Deliveries Up 110% In Q1 2019 vs. Q1 2018 | CleanTechnica). Don't believe the FUD.

    Poor to non working voice recognition on 8.3?

    Have you tried rebooting? When I've had problems with voice recognition, a quick reboot fixes it, but I haven't seen any issues on 8.3.

    M3 Keyfobs

    I mainly use the key fob for easy access to the frunk/trunk. Avoids having to whip out the phone. I can't say that's worth the $150 but it is convenient. Now that we have a "Pin to Drive" option, maybe we'll get passive entry added as an option?

    potential phone key fix (or at least partial solution) for android

    It could be a "height" issue. I, too, had failures with my phone in my back pocket. Keeping my phone in my jacket pocket (above waist) it's worked every time. Same with just holding my phone. So, it does seem finicky.

    Possible Phone Key Solution - Android Oreo Update

    Agree. Upgrading to Oreo "fixed" the connection problems I had with my ZTE Axon 7. It was on 7.1.1 and it worked about 90% of the time. It soft-bricked a couple weeks ago (no idea why), which required a factory reset. ZTE released an Oreo update but it was not available OTA; requiring a separate...

    Thoughts after 650 mile one-day Tesla drive

    I did a 1000 mile trip, each way, a few weeks ago, and it was one of the better drives I've done. I've driven the route a few dozen times over the years in an ICE, but the drive with EV and autopilot was much more pleasant. I normally do the drive each way over a couple days. With my model 3 and...

    Accent Headlight

    Mobile service replaced the drivers side light on Mon and did it in less than 30 min. I didn't watch the whole time so not sure if he did any adjustments afterward, but I don't think so. He did force a firmware update to take care of the turn signal fast blink. All-in-all, I was very pleased...

    [V9] How to Format USB into 2 Partitions for DashCam and Music [Windows]

    I delete the FSCK*.rec files when I get the X. Plug the USB back in and it works. No need to reformat.

    Dashcam error

    I've gotten the error a few times. I noticed a few FSCK*.REC files on the USB after it happens. Those are generated when the dashcam has a write error. Delete the files and it'll work again. I keep 2 USB drives on hand. One plugged in with a spare. I swap when the error occurs. Then plug the...

    V9 dashcam

    I'm surprised Tesla did not include a setup option for a USB drive in the update. One that would format the drive and create the TeslaCam folder without requiring another system.

    V9 - need two USB drives for MP3 play & Cam

    I used Windows 10 diskpart utility. It's a cmdline tool that comes with windows. It's a bit technical but you can see how it works here. Install Windows 10 from a USB Flash Drive Also, it has to be formatted as FAT32. You can use this free utility to help: Ridgecrop Consultants Ltd

    V9 - need two USB drives for MP3 play & Cam

    I use 2 partitions on a single USB key, and it works well. Granted, I just got the update this morning and I've only done some light testing, but it does work. I did have to reformat the partition for the dashcam since I had tested the USB key before getting the update. No problem with the music...

    Software Update 2018.39.x (Version 9)

    I did this. I prepared a 64Gb USB with 2 partitions - one for TeslaCam (16Gb) and the other for music (~44Gb). I tested it before getting the v9 update and the music worked fine. The other partition mounted as well. After getting the v9 (39.7) update this morning, I tested the dashcam. It did...

    Obvious features/functions that weren't obvious to you

    I actually like and use the mirror tilts all the time. They're great for making sure I stay between the lines and not getting too close to a curb when reverse parking in spaces.

    New update last night no more wiper stutter

    I, too, am still seeing the wipers stutter on 32.2. I also had an odd issue where voice commands, like "navigate to" and "call", were not recognized while the wipers were active. Shutting off the wipers, and voice commands resumed working. I did a reboot, and that seemed to "fix" it. Weird.

    Am I doing something wrong? Cruising at Speed Limit

    While TACC is enabled, I usually just tap the speed limit icon on the display to adjust to the new speed limit, plus the preset offset. It would be more convenient to reset to the new speed limit using the stalk, but tapping the icon is acceptable.

    TuneIn Radio and the Model 3

    The only LIVE channel I listen to is Death.fm. I haven't tried any other channel or podcast yet. No problems with it except the few times I've hit an LTE dead spot.

    Model 3 - Hood Wrap Badge Removal

    I got a full frontal SunTek wrap and the installer removed the front badge. He'll install a new one when he can get it, but was told they are on backorder. Still debating putting the badge back on, since it's a clean look without it.

    What do you dislike most about your Model 3?

    Agree. I've been adjusting side mirrors like this for years, and it works well. I, too, was annoyed I couldn't get the left mirror to fully extend but it's close enough that it still works.

    Rear window tint - anyone done it?

    Paying for your car...

    Making an ACH payment is simple. Just go to your Tesla account, and fill in the bank info. My payment took 2 days to post. Picking up my car on Tue.

    Holding payment until delivery? Even after inspection?

    Had to pay in full before Tesla would deliver since Tesla is not allowed to sell vehicles in Texas. My delivery appt is on 5/8/18. I'll certainly inspect it, but at that point there's not much choice on acceptance. Anything wrong, and it'll go in the shop.

    Old eyes & reading glasses

    Get progressive lenses. Keep the top at little or no correction, whatever your distance vision needs, and select the progressive portion to the reading strength you need. It's what I use for driving so I can see the gauges and nav screen. Distance vision is 20/20, but reading needs some help...

    Build Tracker

    It'd be cool if Tesla offered a build tracker like a Dominos pizza tracker. It might help ease the anxiety after receiving a VIN and waiting for delivery. But, of course, it would probably invite more criticism when your car gets "stuck" somewhere in the process :)

    So close. I've been waiting for the ISA call after getting a VIN on 4/17. Got a call from Tesla, thinking this is it. Only to find out it was the Solar City PowerWall division calling to schedule an inspection of my powerwall2 install. Funny, it was installed 8 months ago, and they pick now to...

    Does Powerwall Alert You When The Grid Goes Down?

    Check out the guide, Monitoring Tesla’s Powerwall2 on PVOutput.org, for setting up PW2 integration services to upload to pvoutput.org. I use a raspberry pi3 to run the pvoutput integration service instead of a Windows host. Here's my info: Dogwood_CP_PW2 5.559kW | Live Output

    Discrepancy between app and Powerwall API

    It will also run on linux and mac since it's a java app. Just run the "bin/pvoutput.sh" script to start, once it's configured. I've done a dry run, but will configure it once I get some time and donate to pvoutput.org.

    Firmware 1.9.2

    I was upgraded from 1.6.0 to 1.9.2. That lasted for a few days, and was then updated to 1.10.0. I haven't noticed any differences between 1.9.2 and 1.10.0. I live in Austin, TX

    Time of Use Power Shifting for Powerwall 2

    Once my Powerwall 2 was installed and provisioned, it took about an hour or so for access to the APP. I'm not sure if that is atypical, or not. And this was on a Friday. The Powerwall 2 is my 1st Tesla product (waiting for my Model 3), so there were no other products. Not sure if that makes a...
