    FSD Beta 10.12

    I have had this type of scenario often, in San Francisco and even down on the peninsula In San Carlos and Burlingame, CA. In the in vehicle display, was one of these red lights apparently FLASHING in what the car displayed to the driver? This type of situation really starts to freak me out due...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    My comment was really more about the chicago STREETS (where I am often) than FSD. There are streets downtown where the only reasonable path forward is in the OTHER lane. ;-(. It amazes me that they can’t find a way to repair more quickly and more durably. That said, FSD whee I drive it in...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    The only comment I could make about letting ones Tesla do FSD in the city of Chicago is, be ready to replace about 8-10 wheels a year. Being able to SOMEHOW navigate while on FSD around the giant chasm potholes in Chicago is something they need to work on.

    Supercharger Pricing Map?

    Well base rates around here at least (whole Bay Area and local areas in CA) went up 20% about 2-3 weeks ago.

    Story Time! Day 3 Experience Of a New FSD Beta Tester.

    No worries, I‘m out there next weekend and plan to give it a try. Not really sure why it would perform this way there and not around here, or kings mt. Or other places similar.

    Story Time! Day 3 Experience Of a New FSD Beta Tester.

    When you say this “THIS is a challenge, and an edge case. It doesnt show well on the map, but its WINDY. Production AP slows to 15-20MPH for most of the curves, which are constant, despite the speed limit being 40. Every turn has yellow speed suggestion signs of 25mph or 30mph. Every turn is a...

    Trip Info Card

    Trip cards went available in the early FSD beta builds, I’ll have to try it now with 10.12
  9. T

    Anyone actually missing trip info and tyre pressure cards more than heated seats and defroster buttons?

    yes, miss BOTH regularly. I don’t really know I why they had to be removed.. Frankly the bottom left of the screen is somewhat dynamic, homelink, lights, etc, why not just have the trip CARD be dynamic too when one clicks on the battery icon above? Up comes the card, then one could swipe...

    Try and get some of the visualization screen back and see if the top menu bar of icons re-appears. I think since youre in full NAV only they might be hidden?

    FSD Beta 10.12

    No in car learning going on at all. It’s also not really learning your AREA or capturing area specific info to upload to the hive for broader dissemination. Frankly, I think it’s a failing not to learn things like giant potholes or major road impairments or certain areas where situationally...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I have been prone to tell ppl that FSD is like either a Student Driver OR a driver slightly impaired. At this point I think I’m going to start to describe it as a STUDENT DRIVER who is ALSO SLIGHTLY IMPAIRED.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Indeed.. something like that HAS occurred… at a four way stop light, my direction the car could see THREE RED LIGHTS, one in the left directional lane (for mostly protected left turn) one in MY lane, for directional FORWARD only and one on the right side (not a separate lane) for possibly right...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    WELCOME To FSD Beta!… in my experience resetting the cameras does nothing my car still tries to be about 4-5 FEET from the center line to the point of nearly running into the left side of parked cars on the right side of the road (here in the USA at least). You can certainly do it, and then just...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Fortunately, not my first Rodeo… Tesla, Pcar, Benz, ATOY, other. of COURSE a disengagement is required, otherwise I’d be IN an intersection mostly likely with EMS attending based on what the circumstance indicates. Sadly. For now, I’ve sent videos, captured dashcams (thank you Tesla for...

    Technically wireless CARPLAY requires WIFI and not just BT. BT is just the handshake & initial communications protocol and NOT the transfer protocol

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I’ve had this at least two times with version prior to this back to October.. car has come to complete full stop at red light, four way intersection and then proceeded to enter the intersection as if it was only a four way STOP and not red light. As well, car has come to complete stop on a...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    THIS Is exactly one of the errors I have had before and had again TODAY with 10.12. FULL ALL SIGNALS CAR DIRECTION RED LIGHT and the car just wanted to proceed into the intersection as if it were an all way STOP SIGN and not STOP LIGHT. I disengaged and re-engaged THREE TIMES over the course...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Frankly, at this point and how 10.12 can perform, I’m getting more than a TAD bit concerned.

    CCS Adapter for North America

    If these are ‘free’, then why does PS show 2$/hr for charging?

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I waited a couple days to hear and read others comments, and or some of the youtube videos but I have to say for me and my routes at least 10.12 is absolutely NO BETTER than any prior build and in some cases worse. Frankly, it’s getting a bit disheartening but nothing that I wasn’t expecting...

    Is there a list of vehicles that this can apply to? I guess a may 2018 M3 is just SOL?

    And just in time for another 20% increase in base SC rates.. ugh. If naty gas pricing goes down, do we think Tesla will ever LOWER rates again?

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Could be PURE coincidence, but this is the second time now that when a release was in the wild, I went to the car, switched the software update slider from the advanced (early) setting to the normal setting, waiting a minute or two and switched it back. Within an hour, the new release was...

    DL and INSTALL have always been different… if you’re setup to get releases, it should DL then even if you don’t install them.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I got a Tezlab new SW notification, then nothing in the app… then about 1.5 hours later in the app it showed SW available FOR download.. odd. it would seem though that the server side ‘sees’ the DL coming before it’s downloading to the car?

    Nice.. if you could just get active sessions i might feel like I were in the Kettleman SC Lounge. ;-)

    based on the prior comments you probably should have had a >20 or >25 number or higher.

    Supercharger - Harris Ranch, CA - Expansion (under construction Apr 2022, 80 stalls)

    At this point, i think THIS holiday weekend is off the table.. once completed, installed, transformers in, tested and running the power company sign off can takes weeks. If not longer. I think they might be hoping that this can be online for typical summer travel ramp up NORTH SOUTH on the I5...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Is it 22.12.3.15 that we’re on the lookout for? (Of course it does look like some more updated build will be the newest). TeslaFI shows three installs, but that was days ago so a broader roll-out seems unlikely. and correct me if I’m wrong, but TeslaFI doesn’t really have any employees or...

    What other tech stock to consider?

    Cause honestly, I think the mkt still thinks there might be a possibility that the deal falls apart.. I'm' not sure what go / no go guarantee the offer conferred. Sometime later this week, TWTR earnings are probably going to be s..t and they MIGHt not even give a forecast, so frankly he might...

    250kW supercharger disaapointment

    I’ve read someplace that 350 kWh is the next stop for Tesla. Does anyone have any further information about that and what it might mean for the future charging curves with the newer 4680 cells? It would be pretty incredible if we could get from say 10% to 75% in 15 minutes. I measured a sort...

    250kW supercharger disaapointment

    All I can say is that I have definetly had ~250KW for more than 5 minutes, but yes it was most likely not more than 8 or so. I think I have a video still of the time I charged from 0% to 80% for my 2nd 250KW session. That was back in Dec 2019, during the I5 snowpocalypse

    250kW supercharger disaapointment

    Technically, it's really more dependent on the modem first, assuming it's either cable internet (DCOSIS 1/2/3) or some form of DSL. Any router from probably the past 10 years shouldn't have limited your available internet download speed to 30mb/s unless it was just incorrectly configured. Many...

    250kW supercharger disaapointment

    8-10 minutes ast 250KW is about all I have ever gotten on a 250KW charger and that was arriving sometimes at 0% up to about 5%.. the most i think that curve maintains is about 15 minutes or slightly less. I can usually get about 200 miles added in 20 minutes (from that low SOC) and that is...

    Tax discussion, strategies and questions

    It really does depend on the quintile,, and I’m going to assume most people here are not in the bottom 5 quintile. Prior to 2019 tax law changes (which is when many of these took effect) 45-90% of the top FIVE quintile took more than the standard deduction. that has come down a bit for the...

    Tax discussion, strategies and questions

    The IRS is indeed not sent all the “information they need” at all, for most taxpayers. They don’t get the detail of mortgage payments, they don’t have any detail of state and local tax payments. they don’t get any detail of deductions, medical expenses, other applicable deductions that the...

    Tax discussion, strategies and questions

    I would say one can set the DEFAULT for FIFO, LIFO but in any trade one can always pick the lots to execute on instead.. takes a TAD more effort but with the 4 brokers I use I can pick and choose even though there is a FIFO selection as “default” To the OP, a CPA isn’t really going to interpret...

    Wiki FSD Beta release history

    I’m still on the 2021 build of 2021.44.30.11 since over a month now. This has been a long period with no update. Is something major coming or are they just having issues with dev iteration with everything else going on?

    Tax discussion, strategies and questions

    I’d dig into this just a tad more.. it MAY only apply to whatever required RMD amount one might have for a given year and not just whatever amount one chooses to take out of a tax deferred retirement account type. Most IRA/401K setup for tax purposes and RMD’s have an annual December withdrawal...

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    10% to the power to 10 agree. Most of the time, 80% of the time, FSD beta is ‘fine’.. no sudden moves, no hard braking, no sudden adjustments, no phantom braking, or stopping 10 feet from a stop sign and THEN creeping. but 15-20% of the time, it’s worse than the worst student driver. My wife...

    SiriusXM radio on Model 3

    that could definietly be, but I will say that in the past 14 months and 18,000 miles that I have criss crossed the USA from East to west and west to east and back to west and south to north and west to mountain west, in rental cars. Chrysler Pacifica, our C63, an RS5 and a ford explorer, I have...

    SiriusXM radio on Model 3

    While and "app" SOUNDS great, it's not really what the value or beauty of Satellite radio is. It's the middle of nowhere, or outside major metros, or in valleys and canyons areas.. think I40, I80, I10 travelling beween major sections of the country.. granted, not TOO many drivers do this, but...

    SiriusXM radio on Model 3

    Nearly 20 years ago, every OEM that sold cars in the USA/CA decided to just build Sat Radio into the car at their cost..almost every car and model. it was actually cheaper to just build for it to be included in every car than to make it an option that required a charge to the build of materials...
