    Supercharger - Flatonia, TX

    Buc-ee's in Luling is being replaced with a larger store. Considering Supercharger's have been going into Buc-ee's, perhaps Superchargers will be added when that's done...

    FSD falls back into Autopilot mode

    Thanks for the quick response! I wasn't expecting that as my initial FSD outings were up and down highway 6 and it worked OK there, and then it worked OK on Fort Bend Parkway, which is basically the same layout as SH-99 (divided road with limited access) were it didn't work.

    FSD falls back into Autopilot mode

    Howdy! I'm new to FSD Beta, received it late on the 24th. I used it a few times in my part of town (Houston metro on the south side near highway 6 and Fort Bend Tollroad) without issues (just some interventions required). Last night I visited friends over in Katy. FSD worked at the start...

    Supercharger - Houston, Tx - Galleria

    Yep, the car shows them both as 250 kW max locations. If you look closely at the Superchargers in my above photo you can just make out that the stall being used by the white 3 is labelled 3D which denotes it as the 4th stall on the 3rd AC-DC converter stack. The older superchargers are just 2...

    Supercharger - Houston, Tx - Galleria

    Partially live. The rightmost one in the photo, and those to the right of it, were not active. My SOC wasn't low enough to utilize V3 speeds.

    Opinions on Chill mode?

    Not something I worry about in Houston, though I did take Talith to Wisconsin over the holidays(documented here if anybody's interested). Before we left Houston I changed all our driver profiles to have settings such as chill mode, no folding of the mirrors, and follow-distance of 7. The trip's...

    Fort Worth to Fredericksburg

    Telsa's charging page shows 2 hotels in Fredericksburg and a planned Supercharger, though that won't help you for this trip. Also check PlugShare, be sure to use the filter and deselect the plugs you can't use:

    Wisconsin to Key West road trip

    Maps are updated on all the handouts. I felt it was getting too cluttered/hard to read (especially on the legal version) so I left out the J-1772 adapter, the Wall Connector, etc. I show the adapter to them if I'm giving the full tour; though I also mention I've only used it one time, and...

    Wisconsin to Key West road trip

    Thanks! I made versions for all 4 models, you'll find links to the Model S versions immediately after the Model 3 versions in the tweet chain. I'm getting ready to update the Supercharger and Destination Charger maps on all of them, so you may wish to wait a little bit before downloading them.

    Wisconsin to Key West road trip

    Hmm - just realized I need to update the Supercharger map, it still shows most of Canada's as pending with the grey pins. Will update that this evening.

    Wisconsin to Key West road trip

    Nice! I've made the trip from Houston to Wisconsin in my 3 a few times, the most recent 2 are documented here(summer) and here(winter) at AtariAge. As a hobby I write new games for the Atari 2600 - Draconian, a port of the '81 arcade game Bosconian, is my most recent. I keep handouts in my 3...

    Austin Texas - Fully Charged Live @ Circuit of the Americas

    They covered that during one of the sessions - Texas wind power shows the disconnect between perceptions about Texas, green energy, etc. and what's really going on here. Austin gets a lot of the press, but it's happening across the entire state. Look no further than Tesla's Carbon Impact...

    Jeda USB Hub Vs. Taptes USB Hub

    I got my Jeda back in September. I use the USB-A ports to charge my phones, and the USB-C ports for controllers. I find it's easier to use USB-C for the controllers as you don't have to worry about orientation when you plug them in. I only plug the controllers in when a game is being played. I...

    Tesla Defends Claims of ‘Unintended Acceleration’

    They're trying to - on twitter they use a bunch of hashtags like: #TeslaPaintIssues #TeslaQualityIssues #TeslaServiceIssues and so on. They'll use those tags in replies/retweets of people* who tweeted issues, then use those tags to discourage others from buying a Tesla. As an example see the...

    SyFy's Most Excellent New Series "The Expanse" Full Episode Preview

    I noticed The Expanse is listed twice: The Expanse - season 1-3 episodes are all rated as TV-14 The Expanse (4K UHD) - season 1-3 episodes are rated as 13+, TV-14, and 16+ I suspect the non-4K is the as censored for SyFy, while the 16+ episodes of the 4K version will have Chrisjen Avasarala...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector

    Sorry about that, didn't see yours - based on the time stamps I suspect we started our posts about the same time as I got side-tracked in the middle of mine.

    Gen 3 Wall Connector

    I wouldn't upgrade if you already having something installed. Main benefit is significantly more units with Power Sharing (I think it was 4 max for Gen 2) and a simpler installation (WiFi eliminates the communication wires needed between each unit for Gen 2 power sharing).
  21. SpiceWare

    Gen 3 Wall Connector

    New Gen 3 Wall Connector will support Power Sharing with up to 16 units. I can see this being very beneficial for building out Destination Charging - during our trip to Wisconsin last month the hotel we stayed at in Oklahoma City had a number of Teslas rotate overnight thru their 3 chargers.

    Battery life seems way off?

    Asking for your Wh/mi. I've used 291 Wh/mi so far on my trip from Houston to central Wisconsin in my LR RWD 3: I took the same trip over the summer and used 243 Wh/mi:

    Unsworth Vs Musk defamation trial

    Papafox's Daily TSLA Trading Charts

    Yes, that was me - quite a few people liked the post in fact. I'd posted a link to my post from last year where I'd suggested Papafox modify his template as it can be hard to track down info in a topic with over 2000 replies. Basically a copy/paste of the following template: Conditions: * Dow...

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    I was getting the same error. I have a Jeda USB Hub and picked up a Samsung T5 SSD drive based on results of tests Jeda conducted. The Hub even comes with a short USB cable to make an SSD easier to install. I no longer get the error. I picked up a 1TB drive based on a tweet I'd seen by...

    Rainbow Roof Effect Fading for Anyone Else?

    I don't think the effect is temperature related as it occurs on rainy days when it tends to be colder outside. But yes, the whole back window now shows it when it used to be just on the upper half

    National Drive Electric Week is September 14-22, 2019

    Awesome turnout for the Houston event at Ikea, I gave away as many handouts as the prior to events combined. Last year I gave rides, so was positioned in the parking lot. With the gaming setup I didn't give rides this year, so ended up on the concrete slab in front of Ikea. Was great in the...

    There were fewer cars at the Corpus Christi event on Sunday, but way more people showed up to check them out - I gave away twice as many of my handouts as at the Bellaire event. Many were shocked at how affordable electric cars now are, even before factoring in the fuel savings. I was...

    Turnout at Saturday's event in Bellaire was great! Talked to a lot of people and quite a few kids played Beach Buggy Racing 2 (I had a couple USB controllers plugged in). I was interviewed by Jordan Blum of the Houston Chronicle, brief bit about my recent road trip to Wisconsin made the cut -...

    Time again to show off your Tesla during National Drive Electric Week. There are quite a few events in Texas this year, including 2 in Austin and 4 in the Houston area! There's also a non-NDEW event in Dallas in October at the State Fair. Austin - Saturday the 14th, 10 am - 2 pm Austin -...

    Thanks @SMAlset! Looks like the J1772 Adapter still comes with all Teslas. When I initially made it for last year's events I used letter size paper, so was space constrained. I wanted to hit the key questions of "How much?", "How far?", "How do I charge?", "How do I take trips?" and didn't...

    Rainbow Roof Effect Fading for Anyone Else?

    Was it overcast? It's much more subdued if the sun isn't out. I originally had the effect only halfway down my back window. After a year of ownership I decided to get heat-blocking tint installed, Photosync 30 IRD & 70 IRD, and the effect now goes all the way down. Original With Photosync

    Distraught by rapid loss of maximum battery storage

    Recently took a road trip to Wisconsin in my 3. On the way back* I had to do a full charge to make it from Miner, Missouri to Little Rock, Arkansas: Initially the car told me to stay below 70 so I stayed in the slow lane. After 15 minutes that limit increased to 75, then soon after went...

    USB Game Controllers confirmed to work (at least with Teslatari games)

    Thanks! I noticed the same for Beach Buggy with the PS4 controller - right trigger for acceleration, left trigger for brakes. I've noticed the steering wheel can cause problems if it's not centered, possibly related to what you're seeing in Lunar Lander.
