    Powerwall Gateway WiFi Unavailable. No Stats or Control Available via App or Gateway

    Sorry for delay, just saw this post. It sounds a lot like what I was experiencing. I had the PW go offline, but was able to get it back with a reset. Then resets stopped working. I'd suggest contacting TEG directly and soon. They should be able to verify the issue when they can't reach the...

    Powerwall Gateway WiFi Unavailable. No Stats or Control Available via App or Gateway

    Final update (I hope): Tesla came out Thursday to replace Gateway circuit board. After several hours, they could not get the new board to connect to the Nero(?) meter, even though they are supposed to be mated at the factory. The tech tried to pair them manually, with no luck. Luckily, they...

    Sorry old chum. People may respond to old threads, but only trolls respond with such condescending arrogance. Consider yourself exposed.

    Have fun with your “custom ordered” Audi. Be sure to continue to reply to years-old posts. We lazy, foolish owners thirst for your pompous enlightenment.

    Autopark update

    My experience with vision AP is that it is still very bad at spotting perpendicular spaces. It rarely finds them. However.... It's MUCH improved once you put the car into reverse. If you line your car up to back in, like you normally do, the parking option pops on the screen. It does this...

    10.8 FSD

    I doubt that blue path line is a nano-second, pixel accurate window into what FSD is thinking. It's just the display. The system is constantly calculating based on always changing conditions. It's not an indiction it's getting confused.

    That replaces the "navigate on autopilot" button from the old interface.

    10.8 FSD

    I guess many here don't know about voice commands and how/where to use them. They are used with zero need to take eyes off the road. NOT SO with the "cards". "Set wipers to 1,2,3,4,auto,off" Or you can push the left stalk button. It it really that hard?

    10.8 FSD

    Got 10.8. I'll echo the statements above about the improvements. They are incremental, but noticeable. Lots of expected controversy about the UI changes. Personally, I love the new look. Everything is there. Some of the items (eg tire pressure, driver profiles) take an extra button push...

    I'm hoping it's the same with Disney+, which was a rumor for months before it arrived.

    2021 Holiday Firmware Release - Predictions and Impressions (after release)

    Most likely the cards will be available with voice control. Personally, I love the update. I've never mastered the card flipping, and it's probably the biggest distraction dealing with the touch screen. A tap or two to get to the same screen, for me, would be far easier. I'm tired of trying...

    I've never liked Spotify's interface, and the fact they don't offer genre stations. It's rumored Apple Music is soon to be offered, but sadly it doesn't appear to be offered yet.

    It's probably got it's own thread, but here are the full notes from Christmas release:

    10.8 FSD

    I understand the confusion, but in this AI/FSD sub forum the FSD version is usually used. e.g. this thread titled 10.8. The actual firmware release version is up to Tesla. It gets more perplexing in that there are two paths of updates, one for FSD beta testers and those who are not. Beta...

    No. 10.8 is next week. I know of no updates that started a minute before midnight.

    Powerwall Gateway WiFi Unavailable. No Stats or Control Available via App or Gateway

    Update: Finally got an appointment for service, it was four weeks out. Serviceman came yesterday (Dec.10) and, after nearly three hours and doing two full house power cycles, determined that the gateway radio was bad. IOW, exactly as I predicted months ago. It requires a logic board...

    Since there are lots of posts about maps and mapping sources, I only just noticed that Tesla uses Apple Maps for vehicle locations. Has it always been that way? Why would they use TomTom for FSD but Apple Maps for location tracking?

    Phantom braking is almost certainly a byproduct of deep shadows and glare. This time of year, the sun is lower in the sky and makes the situation worse, especially in early morning/late afternoon. If you want to see the worse of 10.5, drive while it's sunny. If you want to see the best of...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Today's ride had more auto-disengagements than I can remember. Most of them were for no apparent reason and unexpected. I suspect it has to be due to the sun being lower in the sky in late fall, especially in mid/late afternoon. Lots of glare and sharp shadows. This could explain why the few...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    ... and you just proved my point. I'm not sure what yours is. You use the issues around 10.3 as an example. Tesla pushed it out, had immediate issues, pulled it back and then immediately issued a fix. Flash forward four whole weeks. There are reports of a new release of 10.5 being pushed in...

    Did you read the rest of my post? This isn't a product that has been out for decades. There are indeed automated tests.... that are ALSO in beta. There are no standards to apply, no "borrowed" technology that can be reverse engineered. There WILL be bugs, many of them embarrassing. That's...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    So beta testers are "automated"? Personally, they can make as many corrections as they need to get it right before pushing out a new update. If anything, it shows the system is working. Keep in mind, this isn't some obscure iOS bug that fixes an abnormality that affects a few hundred users in...

    Damage to PW When Fully Drained?

    Thanks much for the info, as it was a source of concern. I had my minimum SOC set to 80% when the issue started. Coincidentally, soon after I got messages about a planned Virtual Power Plant sessions for several days. I suspect that drained the batteries down to the minimum. If I had known...

    Does powerwall make sense without solar in 2021?

    Has anyone succeeded in purchasing the PW a la carte recently. I thought they were currently available only as a solar add on.

    Damage to PW When Fully Drained?

    I have an ongoing issue with my gateway (described in another thread here), result being I have no data logging or control via the app or the gateway's WiFi interface. The issue surfaced over three weeks ago, and the batteries are now off (no LED lights). I assume they are drained, and have...

    Powerwall Gateway WiFi Unavailable. No Stats or Control Available via App or Gateway

    Going on three weeks since last contact, and so far nothing more from Tesla. I've called support three times, each time the rep. was going to "check on this for me" and never getting back to me. Worse, my utility sent me a letter of a planned outage during the day tomorrow for a pole...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Just to be certain: When you push the camera icon to report an issue to Tesla, it gives zero feedback that the report was sent? Not even a momentary flicker of the icon? I can't even tell if I'm punching the right icon or even touching any icon. Most times I end up punching it twice. Nothing.

    I turned 99 a couple days ago and got the beta last night. Took it for a quick spin, more on tap today. I know this has been brought up many times here, and I've read the posts. But I cannot get the visualization to expand. I have opted in to the beta, selected the full visualization option...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Currently I don't have the beta, but this Sunday my score will improve to 99. Assuming I get the invite - If I want the remote access camera from 2021.36.8, should I wait and download that first, or will the beta download trump everything?
  38. dandrewk

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    It looks like 2021.36.8 (remote sentry access) is rolling out. Has anyone on beta gotten it yet? How do these "normal" updates work with the beta updates? Will beta 10.4 be a 2021.36.x, which includes remote sentry access?

    Called PW tech support yesterday. Only about a 10 minute wait, and the rep. was very good. I explained the steps I took. She had me do a gateway reset once more to see if I could get a WiFi SSID. Nope. So it's been escalated to Tier 2. Hopefully I will hear from them in about a week...

    Agreed. Even those recent “no intervention” videos driving in S.F. Elon recently linked were at 10x speed. If it was a 20 minute drive, let it BE 20 minutes long! Can’t see much at that speed. Or maybe that’s what they wanted.

    My system is down due to gateway communication issue

    I mentioned this in the other thread here. The capacitance of the system will keep the gateway and PW powered for several minutes after you cut off all power to they system. For me, it took about 9 minutes for the PW and gateway lights to turn off.

    Ok, gave another go at it. Family is losing patience ;) I turned everything off again and waited. At about nine minutes, the blinking light in the gateway turned off, as did the lights on the PW. I turned everything back on. Still no gateway WiFi SSID, no data etc. I think it was important...

    My system is down due to gateway communication issue

    I'm a bit unclear: When you said you turned everything off, the gateway's reset light was still blinking after five minutes? Did you take any other physical steps, or was it just a question of time before the PW/gateway to run out of juice?

    Thank you for your response. I had seen your postings earlier, but it seemed like different issues. My very next step was to do a main service connect and force the PW and gateway to reboot. Which I tried today. Much to my surprise, I cannot shut down power to my PWs. I have used the...

    Thank you for pointing this out. My issue is the app is not receiving data, and I cannot reach the gateway’s internal URL because it’s WiFi isn’t broadcasting. I have reposted to the correct sub forum.

    Yesterday morning around 7 AM my app was showing zero data from my Powerwalls. This happened once before when I noticed the green lights on the batteries were blinking. A gateway reset solved that. But this time the battery lights were solid, but the reset didn't fix anything. The gateway's...
