    Bluetooth connectivity problem

    I have a note 5 and my wife has a galaxy S8 and our Tesla has had issues connecting since day one. It's very random. Sometimes entry works, but starting doesn't. Sometimes entry doesn't work, but media and phone calls do. It's very annoying and I constantly have to swipe my badge for one...

    Am I getting hosed on my insurance(Allstate)?

    I've had Allstate for about a year and a half. I bought my AWD Model 3 the first week of September and expected I might have to switch. But like you, they offered me a good rate so I stayed with them. I haven't had to make any claims yet, which is when you find out if your insurance company...

    Range during -16 weather

    No, turning it off helps with slick road conditions though. I included it just as details.

    Range during -16 weather

    Just thought I'd share my experience today driving (and parking) in -16 weather. I started the morning with a full charge of 268 miles and then commuted 28 miles to work. I parked in a ramp for 8 hours and then drove back home. When i got home i was down to 143 miles. So roughly 60 miles driven...

    Vendor 3D Maxpider 10% off When ordering Frunk and Trunk w/ Interior mats!

    We got ours right before Christmas. We love them so far. Great fit, love the look, and easy to keep things clean! Highly recommend! Also, neither my wife or I care about the large 3D. I hardly even notice it tbh.

    Possible battery issue?

    I agree, it's how you look at it. We're describing the same thing but in different ways. And I appreciate you pointing out a better way to look at it!

    Possible battery issue?

    Wording it this way is misleading. 124 miles is what was deducted from my original range. It is how we get to the 35 miles lost. What is more important is to know the actual distance traveled, which is 89 miles. I lost 35 miles from the original estimate of an 89 mile trip. We are not...

    Possible battery issue?

    The weather outside was around 32-35. I keep the car around 68-70, and mostly keep it shut off once it reaches that. Also, it's a fairly flat drive the entire way.

    Possible battery issue?

    Thanks, I wasn't sure about how to calculate the efficiency. I went with 35 miles lost on a 89 mile trip = 35/89. I think the problem is the wording I used. But you are correct, for efficiency I should have calculated the miles used versus the miles that should have been used (124 vs 89)...

    Possible battery issue?

    Define what a cold battery is. Because I was charging after driving for over an hour at each stop of my trip, yet was unable to charge over 30kW. So my battery should have been warm when it was being charged. Also, thanks for linking me to that site. I haven't seen it before!

    Possible battery issue?

    I traveled 290 miles from the twin cities to Madison Wisconsin for the holidays and had planned to stop at one Super Charger on the way to complete my trip. I kept EAP/TACC at 77 the duration of the trip. Unfortunately, I ended up having to stop at two Super Chargers to make it the entire way...

    Bluetooth calling not working in 48.12

    You got me. I'm not the senior person for Tesla or Apple lol. I'm also not the senior person at NASA so I guess I can't say that we've really been to the moon.

    Bluetooth calling not working in 48.12

    As a senior developer/IT consultant, I feel confident in saying this is a Tesla issue and not a Android or Apple issue. How's that? :) I've tried 4 phones and they all have issues connecting to it in one way or another. But they have no issues connecting to any other device. Cars, headphones...

    Bluetooth calling not working in 48.12

    Let's be clear, this is a Tesla problem not a Samsung/Android problem. My phone works perfect in my other two cars. Also, when I brought it up to the SC, they asked if I had an Apple and then told me they seem to have more issues with Apple phones than Android. Either way, this is a Tesla...

    Bluetooth calling not working in 48.12

    Typical spacing between hood and bumper

    Looks exactly like my spacing. Which looks very similar to all the rest of the gap spacing in all areas of my car. It's more than I'd like, but doesn't bother me enough to complain because I know it's a design flaw and there's not much they can do.

    Free 1 year supercharging on all M3 for rest of September 2018

    I just checked, mine also says "Six months"....but I should be receiving a year. Are they doing it 6 months at a time instead of showing 1 year?

    Poll: Who's read the manual?

    I've tried just about everything. I've hit refresh a million times but it won't fix the browser. The only time I can get it to work, when it's not working, is to do a reboot of the MCU. Then it works until the next time I get in my car and I have to do the same thing if I want to use it.

    Poll: Who's read the manual?

    I have rebooted my MCU numerous times to fix other issues, but unfortunately it has never once fixed the manual showing up. The service center had no answers.

    Poll: Who's read the manual?

    Just an FYI, some of us can't read the manual in our cars. My manual has never been available in my MCU, it's just blank content holders. There's many more who I know have the same issue. I also can't use my browser. I'm not sure if it's a LTE issue or not. I have the digital version...

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    You're correct, I was looking to see how many people went ahead and future proofed when they installed the HPWC. That's why I put the two options between 60 and 100.
  22. T

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    This is what I figure too. I travel out of state maybe 5 times a max a year, and average maybe 1.5. So it's unlikely that I'll need to unplug often. Thanks for the feedback.

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    My only turn off in buying a second UMC is the price. Unless I'm wrong, the UMC typically retails for around $300?

    I would add the option, but it doesn't look like I can edit the poll once it's been posted. Sorry!

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    I survived on my regular 110 for the first 3 months of having mine, but in the winter I'm getting about 40% range due to the cold. So I need to get something installed ASAP because I have a daily 55 mile rt commute. Thanks for all the responses, keep them coming! :)

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    I'll talk to my electrician about options and what fits code. I'm in MN. My local energy company, surprisingly, has been awesome about answering questions. Maybe I'll give them a call and talk through it all because it also needs to pass their inspection - they have a $500 rebate right now.

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    I'm just shy of Canada :) And yes, that was a typo I meant 240. Not sure why I said 220, but I edited the correction in. So it is safe to say that once I make the decision to do a NEMA 14-50 I can only use a max of 50amp? Therefore, if I ever wanted to go to a HPWC I would need to add...

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    If I went with a NEMA 14-50 240v how could I future proof it in case I decided I wanted to switch to a Tesla HPWC?
  30. T

    Poll: What garage charging solution did you choose?

    I'm curious what other Model 3 owners have decided for their garage charging needs. It seems my installer and Tesla themselves are pushing me to get a HWPC, but I am leaning toward just a NEMA 14-50 @ 60 amps and taking the mobile connector with me when I travel and/or relying on Super Charging...

    What would you pay for more unlocked acceleration?

    I agree it has more than enough. But if you've test driven a 100D or the Model 3 Performance model you'll definitely feel the difference. But to all my friends and family that I've given rides to, they are all always amazed at my AWD performance.
  32. T

    What would you pay for more unlocked acceleration?

    That's a really crappy experience to have dealt with and definitely explains the decision. I would have been very upset myself if that happened to me. It makes no sense to tell a customer "No we don't want your extra money", especially when there was such high demand for the cars (400K...

    Does voice command feature work for anyone? particularly for maps?

    I think that we should eventually be able to get to voice commands without initiation by a button. But I still see it as a limiting liability issue from Tesla. It'll be interesting to see what they do now that Amazon is coming out with the Echo Auto.
  34. T

    What would you pay for more unlocked acceleration?

    Not being judgmental, but if you were willing to pay $5000 for 1 second why didn't you purchase the LR AWD that is rated at .6 seconds faster (but reported by many to be closer to .8 seconds faster). I have the AWD and love the performance and acceleration, but honestly, a part of me wishes I...

    EAP constantly saying "autosteer temporarily not available"

    I've The deceleration was drastic. It's hard to say the exact numbers because it happened very fast and I needed to take over control of the car very quickly. But it was drastic enough to really scare my mother who was in the car. It seemed like the car thought I was about to rear-end a...

    Never get option to parallel park?

    I watched it more closely while driving in traffic and at lights last night. The P became available at every stop light, even when I was still in drive. I find it interesting it doesn't only become available when in park or reverse.

    Never get option to parallel park?

    I've never had the P show up on a legitimate parking space. But on many occasions it shows up when I'm backing into my driveway and there's a car on one side of the driveway already (we have 3 cars, 1 stays outside 2 stay inside garage). I also put the car in park at a stop light once to see...

    EAP constantly saying "autosteer temporarily not available"

    This is something I definitely didn't realize until I started researching the issue. I think I assumed the grey icon was always on until you turned EAP on and it went blue. I'm not sure I've noticed it ever not being on. Probably because the times I'm looking for it are the times I'm trying...

    EAP constantly saying "autosteer temporarily not available"

    I am curious if other owners with EAP get the "autosteer temporarily not available" warning a lot when they try and turn EAP on. Whenever I first try and turn EAP on when I get onto the freeway (I have a 27 mile commute to work) EAP almost always barks at me 3 or 4 times before it will turn on...

    Does voice command feature work for anyone? particularly for maps?

    I doubt we'll ever get a voice recognition system that doesn't require the driver to initiate the command by a button while the car still requires the driver to stay alert. This is more of a safety issue. Allowing others in the car to use the voice command without the driver initiating it...

    Does voice command feature work for anyone? particularly for maps?

    Same experience. When it recognizes my voice it works perfectly. It knows what I'm saying every time. But when it's not working it's like it never turns on. Like the mic is off. It doesn't even try to determine what I'm saying. Obviously a software issue still going on.

    Does voice command feature work for anyone? particularly for maps?

    This is my experience as well. A majority of the time when I press the right scroll button or the microphone button on the screen the voice command shows up on the screen but simply does not recognize anything I say. It doesn't matter if the car is stopped or moving and it can be completely...

    Vendor 3D Maxpider 10% off When ordering Frunk and Trunk w/ Interior mats!

    Is there an update this week? Did you receive all the mats Friday like you expected and have they been shipped out for delivery this week? Ordered over a month ago and winter is fully starting to hit here in MN so I'd love to have these soon (Ordered first week of November). Thanks!!

    Does voice command feature work for anyone? particularly for maps?

    Mine works about 20% of the time at best. That's for anything: Music, navigation, calls, etc. It's really annoying that this has so many issues. My 2007 Nissan Altima handles voice commands better and it's over a decade old...

    Advice on short term home charging

    If you can charge at your office during the day and consistently, then a slow charge at home would probably be fine. It gets a little tougher in the winter time in cold region states, but is still doable depending on how many miles you drive. I'm in MN, and my range has been cut by about...

    Garage Charger Configuration Recommendations

    My 2 car garage only has one door, so there's not space between them to install a charger. That's why I'm left with the option of installing something on the middle of the back wall (between where the two cars park), or on the left wall (look at the garage) toward the garage door.

    Garage Charger Configuration Recommendations

    My local energy provider has a time-of-use plan where they offer you a free second meter that runs off your existing meter and it can be for your EV or the entire house. I'm thinking of using it for EV only. When you say NEMA 14-50, you are recommending not going with the Tesla brand wall...
