    Calendar and Android?

    Apparently, Nearby Device Permissions were added with Android 12, so the Tesla App on Android 11 keeps shutting Calendar Sync off. Of course, I've got a Comcast/Xfinity Motorola, and can't upgrade off 11 yet. Meanwhile, the Tesla App keeps assuming Nearby Device Permissions are a thing on...

    Calendar and Android?

    Yeah, I'm having the same problem. Turn on calendar sync on the phone, and it works. But the next time I open the app, Calendar Sync is off, and I get the message "Allow Nearby Devices permission to enable". No such setting in my Motorola One, Android 11. I have to turn Calendar Sync on every...

    HomeLink Stopped working

    Ditto, ditto, and ditto. Although it's only happened once for me. Started after 2019.16.2 and rebooting cleared it. I had just read that Tesla is making Homelink an installable option that must be purchased separately, and then it stopped working in my car. You can imagine I was ready to read...

    TACC - Set to Current Speed?

    That's why I said 'figure out'. The difference is that the stalk in the S and X pushes backward, like the turn-signal/lights/washer stalk in the 3. Not having that in the 3, the suggestion has been made repeatedly here and elsewhere that a half-press of the stalk would make a good substitute.

    TACC - Set to Current Speed?

    Or... Tesla could just figure out how to make it work as it does in the S and the X.

    How to turn off audio/radio?

    There is no 'Pause' for the radio. The workaround is to select a streaming audio channel and pause that -- but that doesn't even work for me on occasion. I've noticed that when the UI reboots (which it does way too often), audio starts up again. A random reboot, while the car is parked, might...

    How to turn off audio/radio?

    I pinged Tesla about it and they indirectly acknowledged that it is a problem by giving me a possible solution, "I have forwarded your concern to the Service Center. An Adviser will be reaching out to your [sic] shortly to assist with your radio. In the interim, our customers have had a lost...

    How to turn off audio/radio?

    Not an acceptable solution. If I hit the left scroll wheel and turn the radio off, I expect it to REMAIN off when I get back in the car. This feels like something that got broken with 2018.36.2. I'm asking Tesla about it.

    TACC - Set to Current Speed?

    I see the last post here was May 1. I can confirm that as of firmware 2018.34.1 3dd3072 (9/7/2018), this issue still has not been fixed. Things I've tried: Push the stalk down half way versus pushing it down all the way. I was trying to copy the behavior seen in the S and X, as above. But...

    Did you name your Model S, and if so, what?

    My Model 3 is Veronica. No particular reason. My wife asked what was my favorite female name is (other than her own or our daughter's, of course). I said Veronica and she said we can name it Veronica and call it Ronnie. Done.

    Random Model S sightings

    (I know, "Photos or it didn't happen". Well, new phone and I haven't worked it out yet.) So I commented to my wife last week that there are more Model S on the road than Roadsters, so it's a wonder we hadn't seen any. Then, Saturday: Right behind a white Model S with a Pano roof where IL 53...

    Random Roadster Sightings

    Dang, I wish I could have taken a photo. Saw a red and black Roadster Sport with it's ragtop on this afternoon around Gurnee, IL. I was heading into Waukegan when I spotted the Roadster coming off Ruth Wilcox Ave, turning west onto Route 120 toward Grayslake. I turned around and headed back...

    Random Roadster Sightings

    This afternoon, while heading south out of Barrington, IL, I noticed a Twilight Blue Roadster stopped at a light heading west on Dundee Road. "That's a Tesla!", I exclaimed to my wife. We made a U-turn headed back up, made the corner and stopped in traffic so I could gawk and holler, "Nice...

    Back in my early 20's I worked at a drug store behind the photo counter. Every day we'd put all the undeveloped film in a light proof bag and some guy would pick them up and take them to the lab while dropping off yesterday's prints. One day while driving to work (on a major road in a large...

    Retiring the "TMC" style and other forum changes

    I'm not very good at this sort of thing. But if any forum member is good with Gimp or Paint.Net, I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to make forum_new-48,png some shade of ... Tesla red, perhaps? Then it would just be a matter of renaming the old icon and uploading the new one.

    Retiring the "TMC" style and other forum changes

    Nice job! One nit-pick I have is that the name and title fonts are noticeably larger. I prefer the smaller fonts of the earlier TMC style, but I suppose I'll get used to it.

    More anti-ev gibberish

    My take, which I'm not going to waste on Jalopnik; Tesla already has sold out into next year. They have no reason to promote the car to boost sales. Not yet, anyway. So why waste perfectly good production cars on the automotive press when word of mouth is good enough. Get the cars in the...

    It happens. I'm not seeing anyone get to what I consider to be the heart of JP's bad math, though. Even if the drive trains adds $40,000 to 20,000 cars per year (it won't), and even if the total gas savings will only be 8 billion gallons per year (it will be more) -- what's this 'per year'...
