    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    Hey Bert, Read your ENTIRE write-up. Nice job as usual. Thank you! In your comment below, are you saying you have the capability to use the TeslaCam on our cars? “Creating a root directory named “TeslaCam” on the same USB device (to use that new functionality), causes the USB Scan process to...

    A 14-Month Customer Service Experience

    Wow, well this is one testimonial that won’t make it in their Annual Report. You’re a stronger and more patient man than I will ever be.

    Tesla Vulnerable to Intel CPU flaw?

    There’s several threads in this forum where security researchers were able to get malicious code on our cars and actually take control. The most recent was a Chinese firm that was able to get the car to connect to an access point by impersonating a known WiFi connection. Tesla pushes out...

    TeslaFi.com

    If the update is “pending” it’s only downloaded to your car but not yet installed so nothing should have changed.

    Model S whine

    I don’t really hear it unless I’m in Range Mode and driving around town. If I’m on the freeway it’s no different than with Range Mode off. Range Mode kicks in the second (front) motor.

    Navigation updated (after 2017.50.2)

    Sometimes there’s no pop up either in which case you have to email Tesla and ask if you’re on the latest db version.

    Navigation updated (after 2017.50.2)

    Navigon database update. Happens about once per year. Sometimes you’ll notice subtle graphic changes on the dash screen too.

    Apple Watch 3 LTE interference

    Hmmm, don’t think I have that issue but will test.

    Apple Watch 3 LTE interference

    I’m unclear as to what you are trying to do. Your iPhone is paired to your car and your watch is paired to your iPhone not your car. So for me if I’m driving with just my Apple Watch Series 3 on and I leave my iPhone X at home I just make and receive calls from my watch. I don’t use the car mics...

    Firmware 8.1

    I think you’re exactly right. This isn’t the same company it was. Broken promises lead to a loss of credibility. Sad to say but I’ve pretty much given up on them.

    There’s no playlist function.

    TuneIn not recognizing account info

    From memory you have to make the MP app full screen while on the TuneIn tab then scroll to the bottom.

    Great job Bert, really appreciate the detail.

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    I'm AP1 and I don't get rescans. I've tested it with different USB drives of different sizes with my same library and nada. @bmah - it might be a regional issue with Nav. For me it fails to give me accurate directions about 20% of the time (enough to not trust it) however in 2015 when I first...

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    They didn't ask me but if I was including Navigation in infotainment it would rank it below any cars I've owned in the last 7 years. I would rate our 2010 Lexus #1 and Tesla last.

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    Some Service Advisors will tell people to run the battery down below 20-30% and then charge to 100% occasionally to rebalance the battery algorithm. I personally do that but going outside what's in the manual could come back to bite you if there's a warranty issue.
  17. M

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    My undertanding is that at lower charge states the 12v won't pull from the main battery and the poster is talking about not plugging in and leaving the battery "empty-ish".
  18. M

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    It's bad info. Ask your friend to put it in writing on Tesla letterhead and I guarantee he won't do that. That should tell you something. Forewarned is forearmed. Good luck!!! Edit: P.S. I will also guarantee you that your battery has degadation. Probably 2 or 3% YMMV or even more if you have...

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    Charging to 100% 2x a month whether you need it or not is just uninformed advise from an uninformed employee.
  20. M

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    No and you would also be putting stress on the 12v battery.

    Phone App: iPhone/Android app

    How are they going to unlock your car unless you lost your phone and didn't have your phone locked or you shared your password? Don't forget your connection to your car via Tesla's servers is also password protected.
  22. M

    What should my ideal charge percentage be?

    in my experience Tesla Service Advisors provide inaccurate, unreliable and inconsistent information. I think they have good intentions but the people with the good info (engineers in Freeman) don't share it. Having said that, keeping your car plugged in to charge to 80-90% is fine but I'd...

    Vote on software features/bugs to fix in 7.1 and beyond

    Although it's certainly possible I think it's more coincidence than anything else. There were a lot of good ideas in that document so it makes sense some of them would make it to production 2 years later but the biggies (Navigation and Media Player) still are way behind other cars I've owned...

    Homelink intermittent

    Happens all the time to many, many people. Lots of threads on this topic. One or all three of the following will fix it: 1. Full reboot of the main screen (foot on the break, press both scroll wheels and don't let off on all three until you see the Tesla "T" on the screen. 2. Reset Homelink...

    The only thing that's true in these two paragraphs is: "Is the shuffle function in Tesla perfect? Of course not."

    Model S and X aluminium body thoughts

    I don't know the cost differential (it would be pure speculation) but you answered your own question...it's the weight.

    Windshield Ghosting on a Model S

    Wow, I couldn't live with that. Seems unsafe no?

    It may sound good but it's not high bit rate.

    Homelink issue

    It's not supposed to, it doesn't work that way.

    Can they do this? Renege on an email about Ranger visit charges?

    The local manager then the district manager but sadly if you don't have it in writing and your sales person has a faulty memory or flat out denies it now, your out of luck.

    Firmware 8.0

    Why is this thread still open, are you guys still on 8.0?

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    IIRC it was $4k to replace the original one so probably a lot more for the next gen version...just speculating. Not worth it to me, I'm good.

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    How much are you willing to pay? 5k, 10k, 15k? Might need an updated wiring harness as well.

    VisibleTesla

    It's very old and hasn't been supported in years. In addition the Tesla API has had significant changes. I don't know how useful this would be anymore. Take a look at Teslalog and TeslaFI. Cloud-based and supported but not free.

    Things I learned about Slacker Streaming

    What exactly did you see them do? The only place that works is on the web portal but doesn't sync down to your car which is still 128.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    I think they have come a long way in implementing this. Much more reliance on the radar since h made that statement.

    Phone App: iPhone/Android app

    That's true however there are apps like TeslaFi that can put your car to sleep if you turn off "Always Connected". The benefit is less vampire loss but the cost is slower app connection.
  41. M

    Things I learned about Slacker Streaming

    It used to be true. Now there's no sense trying to log in with your Tesla credentials because it's setup that way by default and all you'll get is 128. If you try it will just spin. Not sure what happens if you pay for Premium though.

    Homelink issue

    Yes, known issue. In the time I've owned my car I've reset the location or reprogrammed Homelink about a dozen times.

    Firmware 8.1 - Autopilot HW1

    Very cool. I've never had the car ahead of the car in front of me trigger an alert. Good info.

    Firmware 8.1

    I just got 17.24.28 yesterday afternoon. Not enough time to check it out yet.
  45. M

    If you could go back to Firmware 7.1, would you?

    I'd personally stay with 8.1 because there are some improvements but if I were you I'd be concerned with the counters on your ludy use.
