    View Waze Incidents on the Tesla browser

    Eric, I've also been using your site on my Model S browser since you made it a couple yrs ago (previously used the excelsius one), you should add a link on that site for people to donate for support/hosting costs! Does it work on the Model 3 browser they just released? I told Fred Lambert at...

    Reducing to $60k, this is the last chance to buy my car before I decide to just keep it and not get the Model 3.

    Beautiful vinyl wrapped Tesla Model S 85D for sale! Was $100K new

    I doubt that would last long (just like those trying to flip their 3 for $30k profit) considering how many others will rent out too thus depressing the price. Anyway please keep this thread on topic, I am looking for a buyer.

    Beautiful vinyl wrapped Tesla Model S 85D for sale! Was $100K new

    I am buying a Tesla Model 3 so am considering offers on my beautiful Model S 85D with Brilliant Blue Matte Metallic vinyl wrap and tinted windows, the best winter tires (Nokian Hakkepeliitta R2) on separate rims, Autopilot, 4G LTE upgrade and more. 79k miles. I have a clean carfax and no damage...

    LTE Upgrade, Did YOU Do It?

    The LTE upgrade should make more of a difference once they roll oit 8.1 in late Jan with the Linux kernel browser update to improve browser speed. Also at one point I read that there is a way to boost the 4G signal tho when I had researched that I remembered issues with overheating or maybe...

    How to install charger in an apartment complex? Moving to Schaumburg (Chicago suburb)

    I work in Finance at Chicago's utility company and they had an initiative for 5000 charging stations recently that was shot down due to lack of EV interest, hopefully that changes when the Model 3 comes out. I tried to convince them that they should specifically help apartment/condo complexes...

    Where is the version of the autonomous software used in October's video?

    I think it isn't so much them not respecting deadlines. After all if they don't test enough and release it too early, any crashes could derail the whole program as media and regulators would pick at Tesla like crows on a corpse. Sure Tesla tends to be overly optomistic but you have to remember...

    How Many People Have You Convinced to Reserve Model 3 (☰)...?

    I'd say about 50 give it take a few that I convinced to either buy an S/X or reserve a 3 :) After exhausting my efforts with family, friends, coworkers, a car fanatics rally group (tho they love their growling gas cars), I also convinced many renters of my car (on Turo tho they already had some...

    Where is the version of the autonomous software used in October's video?

    You have to keep this in perspective, no other car on the market has anything that functions even as well as AP 1.0 yet, and no other manufacturer promises to improve the features over time with OTA updates. I was in your same situation when I ordered my 85D late 2014 after the anouncement of...

I also made a thread for some consoles/nets for older teslas that they...

    Free (Chicago) Consoles & Nets for older teslas

    If anyone in Chicago with an older Tesla with no console wants a simple center console (I think it retails around 100) or some cargo nets I got them free from the vendor that I bought my floor mats from since I gave them a good review (as well as 70 free vent phone/glasses holders).

    For those that think $8k is too much for Full Autonomy

    Tesla said they'd use the robot snake chargers to have it charge itself without human intervention :)

    For those that think $8k is too much for Full Autonomy

    1. Try pricing a Mercedes E-class with the closest thing to Autopilot 1.0 (still not as good), it will cost nearly $12K in upgrade packages!! 2. Use the Tesla Network to have your car earn money driving people around when you don't use it 3. A couple or family could have 1 car instead of...

    Induction - Tesla Control App for Android and Android Wear

    I tried installing this again just now and both turning on AC and turning on camp mode does not keep air on even if i lower the set temp thru the app.. all it did was go on for a second then off again, repeated a few times and then stayed off. It still says camp mode running. I gave it enough...

    Induction - Tesla Control App for Android and Android Wear

    Maybe worth checking what phone people have too.. I have Samsung S7 Edge. Also perhaps you can make a free version with no features that just tries to connect so that we can make sure the connection works before buying the full version.. its annoying to have to uninstall for refund every time...

    Induction - Tesla Control App for Android and Android Wear

    I have a 2015 85D with Autopilot, do not yet have v8.0. I uninstalled so can't take a pic, but once i logged in it did the following: 1. shows a car moving from bottom to top of screen 2. Text at the top says various messages quickly about getting or loading things like climate etc IIRC 3. The...

    Induction - Tesla Control App for Android and Android Wear

    i just bought it for camping mode since you can't go in neutral while plugged in. Tho in 8.1 I heard we will be able to customize the temp range for the cabin overheat setting that works up to 12 hrs after the car turns off so that may be effective too It gets stuck loading vehicle info for...

    Improved Trunk lighting - Is there demand?

    For anyone interested in a simpler stickon magnetic USB rechargeable light (only need to charge a few times a yr) see my other thread, sounds like some people have trouble installing the ones in this thread. Great rechargeable motion & light sensing trunk light

    Too many choices for a car - help help

    Do you have a 110v regular outlet at your apartment? You can still plugin to that and get 3-5 miles of range per hour so overnight that would basically recharge your commute.

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    Lol I just found it peculiar that he can't seem to find any faults with the Bolt, he tries to talk it up so much and downplay the Tesla advantages

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    Jeff, what is it about the Bolt that makes you so insistent to keep arguing on here and elsewhere (have seen your posts outside of TMC too) that the Bolt is just as good a car as the model 3 with no supercharging, no autopilot, no over the air updates, less performance, less aerodynamics, ugly...

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    How is that going to help promote EV adoption when the primary resistance to many people buying EVs is lack of rapid charging stations for long distance travel?
  33. M

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    I agree that there is little motivation for improving the network. Surprisingly, I work at very large utility company (across the country) that plans to install 5,000+ charging stations the next few years not for profit but to advance EV adoption. The problem is the vast majority of them will be...

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    I see almost no mention by anyone about how big of a factor the tech will be in choosing a Tesla.. 1a. Autopilot is a HUGE advantage in addition to over-the air software updates and the big screen, and likely it will be even closer to fully autonomous; Autosteer was the reason I spent 6x as...

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    Yes this is what I was trying to explain before, I think people just didn't get it
  36. M

    Would you consider a Bolt?

    Tesla will likely have 100k-200k more buyers eligible for the full tax credit than GM and even more eligible for partial credit due to timing of the phaseout and the ramp up of production; Remember it starts to phase out after the next quarter after 200k US sales so if that occurs on the first...

    30 Day Autopilot Trial Confirmed

    Be careful.. they may decide to limit abuse by letting the offer expire after a couple weeks
  38. M

    Is the 25 mph auto emergency braking limit arbitrary, or a hardware limitation?

    Subaru with Eyesight (best rated Pre-Collision Braking) can prevent a collision if within 30+ mph as well

    Best mattresses for Model S

    If you aren't charging then you can enable e-brake in the controls while in Neutral and it will keep air on, or if you are charging (thus need to be in park) I believe there is an app that will send a signal every so often to wake up the car as a camping mode

    Heads-Up-Display (HUD): More proof

    Seems more and more likely that Tesla will have the most advanced HUD in any car :) Recent Tesla hire might have spoiled one of the Model 3’s biggest surprises

    Poll: Why do you want a Tesla? [from 2016]

    Just Did 20 Miles at "0" Rated

    NEVER use rated range, go to the energy app and change to average range over 30 miles if you want a better estimate (wish they could show that for the dashboard instead of rated), i just use battery % times 2 in the winter and a little more than that in summer; so at 90% instead of 240 miles...
