    Question on FSD and making a turn

    hi sorry to hear you experience has been disappointing. I do agree that this is all a matter of expectations, one's comfort with the tech ( patience for the machine todo its thing,- like a teenager) and willing to tweak a few things ( like speed settings, camera calibration). I've had FSDb...

    definitely send them a clip of that one may even email them too! it should still be able to see the edge of the street( maybe it thinks it is all one lane and is taking its half out of the middle. Then maybe map doesnt have enough info or some thing

    Model S pre-facelift to facelift Prior Design PD-S1000

    FSD Beta 10.69

    they switched in Virginia to bright yellow reflective traffic light backing edges to provide more contrast in cases like this . this time of year we have the same problem with our roads being very east west facing ( bad in the morning sun up and the evening commute sun down) I did...

    FSD Beta 10.69 looks good for me in VA.. 3 items that were bugging me on unlined suburban streets are fixed and clean. I am working to tweak my "speed above the Speed limit" to match the prevailing traffic just a little bit more. still a few spots it goes a little faster than I would...

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    Ive really been eyeing the Audi GTe , their taycan sister car, ( it is still more than a MS Plaid I think) .. but I am so invested in FSDb on my 2017 MS 90d and all my upgrades, (and the battery is still really great !) that I cant see moving to another. I got lucky and have a good...

    How do I know when I receive FSD beta?

    the safety score game will definitely change your driving habits especially coming onto traffic form on ramps adn car spacing and how fast you take a off ramp. you'll find you can do a few things to game it ( look in the threads for how folks got to 99 and 100) glad they are opening it...

    Just come across the phantom braking issue, considering canceling my order

    I phantom brake when I see a police car in case I was going too fast (my wife hates that) .. the car is doing it if some thing is spooking the AP or EAP ( it can some times be the wrong series of shadows . I use FSDb regularly and any hesitation is now when it seems warranted...

    New loaner/Uber policy?

    WOW! is this everywhere? it was bad enough that I had to wait 5 weeks for a suspension part after hitting a pothole ( people don't do that too often do they that you would actually have the parts avialable ... ;) ) then picked up the car and it looked like what a car looks like...

    Planning to Buy 2017 Model X 90D

    if you do a '17 as the others have said make sure it has a MCU 2 and HDW3 drive computer. those upgrade for me, made mine get to 2019 quality . and the battery on Version 3 90 Pack after march 17 (I think) have held up . I get 242 ( I think) . it is much better than a 60 or a...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Woof! On the price hike .. makes me feel a little bit better about adding it some years ago at $4k. It also makes my old 2017 feel positively new (with some of the hDW upgrades we had todo). It will be a dis incentive for the average non technical user. Which is probabbaly good In Keeping down...

    Model S Service Experience

    if it is any consolation ( and it wont be) Tesla service is now uniformly bad. In northern VA i used to have very good service experiences Since 2017, loaner cars, they vacuumed and washed the cars before giving them back. like the " luxury brand" the used to proport to be . I just had to...

    FSD is a fraud

    Fraud in this case must be in the eye of the beholder ( or the expectation of the beholder, or a lawyer of the beholder).. meanwhile I guess I have one of the only cars that actually works right, my FSDb sessions are nearly perfect ( better than my expectation actually), I don't flaunt them...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    ahh thanks yes that that is what i do as well in the FSD beta ( city streets) occasionally it will want to take a different rout to a familiar spot. that seems to be picking up traffic estimation to help with the route. I did notice two revs back the FSD beta picking a different...

    5000 km road trip - Vancouver (BC) to San Diego round trip

    wow, this doesnt add up , now granted im on the east coast, and yes, if you had tried this on back roads ( and nice scenery) in 2017 ( with my MS 90D) you would have had to have the plug share ap and the internal super charger map at the ready. in the " early days" if you strayed from...

    Charging While Towing

    a bunch locations in our area have 1 pull through out of 8 ( usually the ones off the interstates where some one might be towing something I think) instead of the the standard back in . but you sort of have to know what is at the location the charge map doesn't say . some have been...

    FSD Beta 10.11

    just got 10.11.2. from 10.10.2 so I can see some significant differences. I have a 2017 MS AP3 setup ( new cameras and all that) so far for me it is a bit of a regression so far on unmarked suburban streets. The display is definitely less jerkier, the turns are smoother, less...

    The catastrophe of FSD and erosion of trust in Tesla

    so to put some perspective on things , here's a different take (but i'll probably be branded a fan boy). since 2017 I have not complained about what the capabilities do ( that means you have a expectation , and I learned early on to not use Elon's description or what the sale guy...

    Questions on FSD vs NoA vs Autopilot

    hi blue means it is "on" ( it took me a while to get that right too :) ). I have noticed that when I go from the dynamic city street " wiggles" to a main highway it " switches" to a more "standrd lookign" NOA pre FSD beta 10.X then as I head down an offramp it switches back...

    I just want to go straight, but FSD wont let me?

    yup that is what it is doing it is assuming you want to go to work due the time, or last thing you did ( like go home, sso it assume you want to go to work now ) just cancel NOA ( the blue button on the map ) and then it will run fine. if you are on local streets and do not put in...

    Just Loaded the FSD Beta..... Wow

    a couple of tips and tricks for using FSD beta. I have found that keeping my left hand (I have a 2017 MS) on the AP stalk ( left side) . and do the " pull back" is good for going through green lights and handling nags a simple pull is easier than the scroll wheel ( just don't do it 5...
