    I can view my cameras, so I'm gonna say no. At least not for me.

    Superchargers in Southern California (location speculation)

    Data point of 1: I am able to charge at work which is where I do 95% of my charging. I do occasionally charge at home, but A) it is only 120V, and B) It is a shared circuit that is paid for by the association and while it is ripe for me just to take the "free" charging, I choose to not abuse it...

    Can I do a software update via flash drive?

    Since I got my car in August 2019, every single firmware update (and map update) has been via my phone's hotspot. I almost always successfully DL on my drive either to or from work and install when I park. Since you are new, here is how to do this. I suggest doing this at the beginning of a...

    Car won't update (2022.16.1.2)

    Must be something with this particular update. Since getting the car in August 2019, every single firmware update has been downloaded via my phone's hotspot while driving (and them installed while parked). Last week, I started downloading 2022.16.1.2 and it got stuck - first around 30% and then...

    USB Music frustration

    When I first attempted the update on Friday, it was 2022.16.1.1. After I cancelled it myself, when it re-attempted over the weekend, it was 2022.16.1.2. I do all my updates via hotspot on my phone and I only enable it when it tells me there is an update, so we will see when it actually pops up...

    USB Music frustration

    That's interesting: I have never had to unplug/replug, so I can't offer any insight on this. Was this consistent across more than one device (did you test another USB drive)? A little set-back for me. After many attempts (including a couple of Touch Screen resets), I finally had to open a...

    USB Music frustration

    Just curious what specifically is working better for you? I have the 2022.16.1.2 update pending (should finish the DL on my drive home) so I am curious. Also, with "...a problem/regression with mounting usb devices..." are you referring to USB not being automatically recognized and recalling...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    What kind of answers are you looking for? On a Tesla forum, you are most likely going to find people who are happy with their purchases. Worth it compared to what? Compared to 3 LR, it doesn't have enough range. Compared to Model Y or Model X, it doesn't carry as much cargo and/or people...

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    As does "Change audio source to USB" I wonder if "Please Elon, if it isn't too much trouble or an inconvenience to you, would you please be so gracious as change my audio source to the abysmal USB player you have stuck us with?" Maybe I will check that one tonight.

    USB Music - cover art

    (Cross posting from another thread) I don't think this is a firmware version issue: I am on 2022.12.3.2 (and haven't updated for a couple of weeks) and the voice command stopped working for me over the weekend. It has to be something on Tesla's servers (voice commands are processed back at the...

    USB Music frustration

    This isn't some fancy gizmo: we are talking a very simple functionality within the car that has existed in the car world for quite some time. My last car was a 2013 Ford Taurus with an entertainment system that has been around since the late 2000's and that USB playback control was pretty...

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    Based strictly on what I read here and my own anecdotal experience, I think the biggest culprit is poor quality and counterfeit USB thumb drives partnered with less than stellar drivers in the car. I see a lot of people buying drives off of Amazon (even from "reputable dealers") and other...

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    I listen to USB music 99% of the time in my car. As others have mentioned, you can use the "USB" voice command to resume playback: it has a decent success rate. However, since I don't have to pay for charging, I have my Sentry set to always be on (even at home in a closed garage). I have found...

    A system reboot occurred while driving

    This is correct. This reboot is officially called "Restarting the Touchscreen." See Driving > Starting and Powering Off in the manual. I have done this while driving multiple times with no effect. There is nothing dangerous about doing this.

    V11 2022.4.5 doesn't remember USB source

    Starting with 2022.4.X, the system started ALWAYS forgetting where you left off. Before that, by always making sure your car was awake before getting in (I always turned on my environment before going out to my car), it would pickup playback 99% of the time. Now, what I do to get the car to...

    USB Music - cover art

    My experience from a month + is that leaving Sentry on resumes music automatically about 70-80% of the time. For the balance of the time, using the "USB" voice command fills in the gap. One drawback of having to use the voice command is that it doesn't reopen the correct folder you might have...

    With all of the problems that USB playback has, I try to avoid it out of caution. I just switch to another source.

    USB music getting disconnected

    When you do this, the Tesla doesn't keep track of what it has played, often replaying songs you've already heard without having played other tracks.

    2018 M3 Long Range EAP Changed to FSD Capability

    Though it may be limited by the 2.5 hardware, Smart Summon is included as part of EAP. I have EAP and have used this party trick a couple of times. How did things work out? Did you get your HW3 update and no accompanying bill?

    Usb music not restarting

    A workaround that I came up with is to leave Sentry on EVERYWHERE (even at home in my garage). Yes, it's a power drain and we really shouldn't have to resort to this, but at least this way the music is (almost) always there. In addition to the "USB" voice command (which isn't 100%), you can...

    USB music getting disconnected

    The one downside to doing this is that while it recalls the playback position, it doesn't recall the on-screen album (or whatever) listings. If I want to look at the group I am in or select the next album*, I have to navigate back to the folder hierarchy from the beginning. *I have two drives...

    I was responding the hyperbole of another poster making ridiculous claims. I have a 3 and the controls are the same. This is in a thread about V11 and its changes (not directly about the JUST the wipers). The wipers on V11 no longer have a button on the touchscreen and many (myself included)...

    That has nothing to do with it. "That works if the windshield is wet, but if the thing you're trying to do is turn off/reduce the frequency, tapping the stalk is rather counterproductive..." Claiming counterproductivity is FUD. Hitting the stalk is AN EFFICIENT AND SIMPLE WAY TO BRING UP THE...

    Phantom Speed Reductions

    To the best of my recollection, I have not had my speed change due to reading a sign, except on surface streets, where TACC will always limit your speed to 5 MPH over the posted limit. And even then, it is not based on street signage as much as it changes due to the map database (it know the...

    Poll on V11 interface

    If your windshield is dry, the need to access the wiper controls is nil (or on the very rare occurrence you may need to, tapping the screen is not some huge inconvenience) An occasional swipe of the wipers on a dry windshield is not going to scratch your windshield. If you were driving in a...

    Model 3 12v Battery issues, monitoring, Aftermarket replacement

    Funny you should ask... This morning, I got the dreaded messages that my 12V was having issues. I tried to get a service visit from the truck to replace but the soonest appointment was Saturday. From all I have read here, I knew to get it taken care of immediately. I drove my car to the Irvine...

    V11 2022.4.5 doesn't remember USB source

    I have heard from some sources (not Tesla related) that even that doesn't guarantee. Amazon doesn't put that much effort into a secure supply chain - just that they get the products.

    V11 2022.4.5 doesn't remember USB source

    From my (limited) testing, drive format doesn't make much difference. IMO, the biggest culprits are 1) the Tesla SW, and 2) the physical drives. Personally, I believe that many (most?) of the thumb drives purchased on Amazon are counterfeit and that causes a great deal of the drive frustration...

    USB Music frustration

    Well, the above does work. But I have gone back to keeping Sentry on at all times. It remembers not only the playback position, but also the page on the screen as well. You know: how it SHOULD work without needing to resort to trickery.
