    Help with TPMS Sensor programing on 2010 Roadster

    Hi @Phleabag , As @X.l.r.8 mentioned there a few ways to "relearn" the sensors to your car... There is a Special Tesla tool to do this. Tesla used to sell the tool to Roadster owners but gave up on that... Very many tools will reprogram or clone TPMS sensors for the Roadster. The trick is to...

    Anyone still rocking a Pi Zero W smart drive for TeslaCam on Sentry Mode?

    Hi @FatherTo1 , It's still painfully slow... I have not had a chance to work on the speed of it... Yet... I save everything so it is slow... If you saved only Sentry and Saved clips it's not that slow. But it is automatic, so it needs no babysitting... Shawn

    MCU2 Micro SD Card Replacement

    Hi @MikeScarne , The Micro SD card at 8GB sounds correct. I believe that contains the navigation data information. The 64GB that you are remembering is the internal EMMC that was failing and was the subject of a recall in MCU1. The original size of the EMMC was 8GB. Hope this helps, Shawn
