    Battery cycle ranges and degredation over the cars lifetime (90-20%?)(95-5%)

    Battery cycle ranges and degredation over the cars lifetime (90-20%?)(95-5%)

    I grew up in ND and don't like those odds. Any given day it would be fine. But keep in mind the winds that are prevelent. Model S is a sleek vehicle but -40 temps and 30kt headwind will cut heavily into range. Plus, that is not the day you want to be stuck on the side of the road with a dead...

    The MCU2 upgrade is now $1500

    Prices change, that's just life. I happily paid $2,500 for my upgrade and have been enjoying it for months. On the flip side, I only paid $4,260 for FSD and now the price is $10k. If I'm that they won't refund $1,000 from 6 months ago, Tesla could be ticked that I have not paid them the extra...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I believe mine is a July 2017. It was built right when they announced "uncorked" so I got in on that but just missed the air suspension becoming standard. 75 RWD,

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    All done and it is fantastic! All done and it is fantastic! Tyson's Corner SC in Virginia finished my upgrade yesterday. Charged my card on file when I picked it up and I was on my way. The trim and everything install related is perfect. My firmware was downgraded to 2020.12.x but upgraded...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I'm nervous about the trim too. About a year ago they replaced my screen due to the yellow band. The trim wasn't put back on right, the screen was tilted, and they cut the leather on my steering wheel. I rejected the repair so they kept it a few more days to do it right including replacing the...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    My ‘17 S went in to Tyson’s in VA yesterday morning for the MCU1/AP2.0 swap out. I called at 4pm and the hardware was all in and working but the download had not finished. If it got done by 5pm they would roll it out and I could pick it up. Unfortunately my app notified me it finished about 7pm...

    "Voltage supply too low" error

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    Tesla change the "Infotainment Update" web site to say AP 2.0 vehicles are "Scheduling Now" about the same time as Elon announced the Fremont factory was going to reopen Friday. But then Alemada county shut down their attempt to re-open. I wonder if that will have an effect on the upgrades that...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    true enough on the hardware. My point was more that it’s what’s in the current shipping vehicle. I’m glad you had a good experience with others in the past. My Experience with Ford upgrades was pretty poor.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    they have been updating the web site as the date slips. But the directions remain the same. Wait for an email that your vehicle is eligible. The fact that this is happening at all reassured me that I bought the right brand. Try asking any other auto manufacturer to put a 2020 touchscreen and...

    How LONG must I wait for my MCU2 UPGRADE???

    The information you are asking for is on Tesla’s web site. It has been updated at least twice as the date is pushed out. I have the same hardware as you so late May, unless they push again. You will get an email when you are eligible. Tesla has furloughed thousands of employees, and have been...

    Sorry for my soapbox moment but I can no longer help it. I am one of the MCU1, AP2.0 folks. I fully intend to buy the Infotainment upgrade when my email arrives. Yes, I am discouraged that we slipped from March to April to May (so far). Yes I am frustrated that Tesla's banked my FSD money for 2+...

    Error: “Climate keeper unavailable due to system fault”

    I got this error trying to enable Dog mode this weekend. That whole slider bar was dimmed and unavailable. I submitted the error as a service request right away. Tesla texted back a response that after reviewing my logs, it is a known error in my firmware (2020.4.1). They canceled my service...

    2020.4.1 started downloading on my 2017 S, but got stuck at 48%. I called support and they “fixed it” by pushing 2019.42.2.1 back on. Now they won’t try again with 2020.4.2.1. They of course claim that it isn’t released to my type of vehicle yet. So frustrating.

    How many of you Smart Summon the car?

    I’m really disappointed in this feature. The few times I have tried it were total failures. Small parking lots with nobody else moving around. It would back our part way then pull back in before trying again. Once it backed out only part way and headed toward the car I was next to. ABORT! One...

    Model S HW 2.0 to HW 3.0 Upgrades? (Not HW2.5 or Model 3 upgrades to HW3)

    FSD purchase follows the car, not the buyer. So selling the car just transfers the expectation to the next owner, it doesn’t make it go way.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    So MCU1 folks with a fair amount of warranty left should keep Sentry mode on at all times. Get it to fail and be replaced under warranty. Maybe enough MCU1 failures will trigger Tesla to make the upgrade a reality. EIther by drying up the MCU1 replacement supply or some other reason.

    Looks like V10 infotainment features not supported by MCU1 (video)

    That doesn't make the problem go away, it just moves it so someone else. If I trade my 2017 MS in for a 2019, someone is going to buy my used 2017 and want the features to work. I didn't mind this on my Ford when they came out with new software on the next model year because it was never...

    Should Tesla be worried about the Taycan?

    Additional high end EV cars is a good thing. It supports Tesla's vision that there is a demand for electric cars and further moves them in to the mainstream, not a gadget. That will lead to a variety of improvements for all of us. Off the top of my head. more charging infrastructure, better laws...

    FSD Upgrade Install Date

    I believe his disclaimer was that the hardware upgrades will start AFTER the software has progressed to where there are FSD features available that AP 2.x hardware can't handle. There is no point upgrading now since the software won't take advantage of it. We know new cars are shipping with AP...

    Perpetual Romance Mode

    I have an odd issue since getting 24.4. A few days ago I was showing a friend the Fireplace feature. Part of that mode is it changes the Slacker station to "Romance". Since then, each time I get in the car to drive Slacker switches from whatever category I was on back to Romance. I tried a...

    Manual homelink always worked for me but auto-open stopped working when I got 20.2.1. I recently got 20.4.2 and after a full reboot, I reset homelink location, turned off/on auto, and changed the distance slider to a tish farther away. Auto-open now works but I don't know what made it work.

    Arcade Mode On Mcu1?

    It’s a great model as you buy. I got “uncorked” and some other features after I bought but before it was built. But it stinks when you miss the following upgrade. I missed AP2.5 by weeks. But so it goes with Tech. Ever bought a TV or phone only to have the replacement ship 2 months later with...

    FSD purchasers: When might HW3.0 become available?

    We know HW3 is being designed to be able to retrofit HW2.0 and HW2.5 vehicles. I don't remember where I saw the pictures, but it looked to have extra plugs depending on what was needed for a given retrofit. It is possible the future HW4 is not intended as an upgrade and will just be in whatever...

    FSD purchasers: When might HW3.0 become available?

    I know the disclaimer is that the HW3 upgrades will start when the software needs it. Those of us on AP2 hardware can argue that Sentry mode and Dash Cam features don't work for us and the hardware is the limitation. While those are not FSD features, I think it is highly likely the AP2.0 folks...

    Arcade Mode On Mcu1?

    I agree that the 2011 hardware has way more power than available in 1980’s. But it is also multitasking with many other things like downloading traffic in the background. Could Tesla rewrite the Arcade so it suspends all that and devotes the resources to the games? Of course. But it is an effort...

    2016 Model S - no sentry update

    That is why it is helpful to put in your post what version you are taking about instead of just saying “latest update”. Given they can be pushing 3+ different versions out at the same time, latest is not helpful.

    AP vs. FSD -confusing or deceptive advertising?

    True, but the forums are full of screen shots of former versions of the AP site, and former tweets. I'll bet you could even use google's "cached pages" feature to bring up the EAP page. The point is, what was, is no more. Folks have to stop using what other people purchased last year to justify...

    My theory why the S/X will never get sentry mode

    I would be happy with black and white video if that was all they could offer post HW3 upgrade from HW2.0. It was never promised so I won't be too upset if it never comes but B&W is better than nothing at all.

    Just got in a heated discussion with New York Gov Offical about chargeing net work

    Are you sure Elon "gave in" in Europe? As I understand it, the Model 3's going to Europe are getting CCS ports, and the super chargers are being outfitted with additional CCS cables. But this is more so the cars only need 1 type of charge port for SuperCharger and other networks. I don't believe...

    My theory why the S/X will never get sentry mode

    HW 1 is based on camera and technology from Mobileye. Tesla consumed that as a feed. There is drama and a falling out but basically Elon wanted more control over the technology so he decided to build his own. The first version was HW 2.0 that has the side cameras too. So it really is a...
