    Gigafest????

    Travis County approved today. I had the date incorrect --- not 27, but 22nd. Keep an eye out for any info.

    Gigafest????

    My understanding it is a Permit Required Event by Travis County (surrounds Austin) which has jurisdiction on major gatherings. So the County will limit the overall size of the event. The final review of the 15,000 person permit is scheduled for March 27th. At this time It would seem "just...

    Gigafest????

    Tesla announced that priority will be the Austin area residents. The permit was for 15,000 attendees. According to Elon's tweet, Austin residents will be given first priority. Travis County, Tx commission meets on March 27th to review the mass meeting request. Info on Teslarati.com below...

    Front License Plate Holder on a Refreshed 2022 Model S

    If you elect to remove it, take it to a body shop to have it removed. The double-sided adhesive is very strong and the screws to remove the "color-matched portion are uncommon. You don't want to damage the front facia. I don't think the mounting plastic honeycomb piece behind the...

    When will my car get updates? Its been AGES already!

    @PorthosJon I Understand your point. However, it is not sequential of date of purchase or by date of manufacture. There are differing updates based on every Model and each Variant of those models -- A model Y Standard range is different SW that a Performance Y and different than a Long Range...

    OK.. I've Driven Tesla's for 5 Years. I yield to you two months. Just trying to pass information on

    When will my car get updates? Its been AGES already!

    Tesla is the only Auto Company that updates its cars features with no cost to the purchaser. Software has to be reliable since it is driving your car. Testing and validations is imperative. As an old song goes "Fools Rush In". My 2019 Tesla has 44 updates/improvements in two years. No other...

    When will my car get updates? Its been AGES already!

    Car Wash mode is only for 3 and Y -- not sure why. I have no interest either since I never take my Tesla through a Car Wash tunnel. However, it makes sense for those who do to release the brakes, fold the mirrors and turn off the Windshield wipers. Check you setting in SW and make sure you...

    When will my car get updates? Its been AGES already!

    Obviously, the first number is the year the release was STARTED. In the case of 2021.4.xx means the 4th week of the year. The current release is 2021.24.4. It was released a couple of weeks ago. Some may have gotten 2021.24.3 which was the first release for the base code of 2021.24.0...

    Double vision (ghosting) at night through windshield?

    That's odd. Ghosting was seen on early MX's potentially attributable to early manufacture of its 5 1/2 foot wind shield. Thus the thread was "dead" for nearly five years. May I suggest cleaning your windshield (outside) with rubbing alcohol and using a single edge razor blade (sliding as if...

    Air Conditioning Reduced DC FastCharging/Supercharging rate may be reduced -Error Help

    @unknownR Good luck. The SC here fixed my 2016 MX. It made a significant difference in noise when charging and AC performance in "Hot-Lanta". Hope they find it.
  13. Aljohn

    Air Conditioning Reduced DC FastCharging/Supercharging rate may be reduced -Error Help

    @unknownR On some early X's there was a misconnection of the cooling/AC ports. Caused AC to be reduced and loud cooling fan noise when charging. Have SC check the following: Service Bulletin 420007 for Tesla EQUIPMENT | AutoMD

    Can't erase a sentry video listed as "Online"

    Sentry events that caused Full Alarms like glass breaking, body movement, loud noise when parked, etc. were previously uploaded to Tesla in Freemont and held for 90 days. If the owner didn't contact Tesla for a copy, it would be deleted. Tesla no longer uploads those alarms. They are now...

    Model S Delivery Event on June 10, 2021 [Rescheduled] - What to expect?

    Most likely not 4680's in the Long Range or Plaid. Elon already commented the new models of S and X will have updated 18650 batteries. These are modified to accept the higher Level 3 Super chargers similar to the Model Y,3 and will have a larger diameter internal power cables. Something...

    Side repeater camera view on screen

    @atc789 Boaterva post is correct. If you select the rear view camera there is a indicator that you can select to view the two rear facing side repeater cameras. I find the Blind Spot warning system very good on the dash (front of steering wheel) on the X. So I don't watch the repeaters.

    Side repeater camera view on screen

    @atc789 Interestingly, I never put the Back Up Camera on when Driving.... it messes with my head and equilibrium... tried on my 2016 X (MCU1 -- its demised pictured). It caused me headaches. I will briefly try tomorrow and see.

    when are we (not so safe drivers) going to get the Super-Duper update?

    If past Early Access in which I participated is a gage, when I tested traffic sign and signal recognition, it was about a month of testing/feedback/monitoring before a release to the "herd". Even after release there were several changes to the function. The timing was similar during Navigate...

    Side repeater camera view on screen

    The side view is available in reverse on MCU2 vehicles. My impression is the additional views are great for backing out of the garage and seeing an object along side the car; however, my primary focus remains the rear cameras and the "guide" lines. That said, rumors suggest Tesla may turn on...

    Wiki Model X Reset Techniques

    Under maintenance or Security there is a Re calibrate Camera option. It will cause your cameras to reset to factory and need to recalibrate while driving on your local roads.

    Missing Tow Package?

    Tow Package at one time was an option. Check your Monroney Sticker and see if it is listed as an option or standard Equipment. Tesla changed that over sometime in 201`7-18. Not sure of the actual date.

    “Differential” wobble noise?

    That is correct.... launch and hard acceleration should be done in low to align the half axles -- whether performance variant or long range.

    How to get suspension IC App with 2020.36?

    @eccl1213 Odd. The widget looks like a shock. it shouldn't matter if you have advanced selected in suspension or not. I found on the right side. I haven't tried to see if its also on the left.

    How to get suspension IC App with 2020.36?

    @eccl1213 The additional suspension settings and widget are only available on RAVEN Adaptive suspension built after May 2019. If your X is a RAVEN variant, the widget should be present.

    USB Memory for Dashcam

    Yes, I have a 256 like that also. Takes little space and works fine. You can just place it in the front USB port and format it in the car. No need to place in the PC and format and add the TeslaCam folder, the car will do it all in a few seconds.

    USB Memory for Dashcam

    unless you need a BIG drive, Samsung makes a compact USB up to 128GB that fits nicely in next to the phone USB and does not restrict the Door from closing or taking up space.

    What is this new icon?

    I actually watched 2001 a Space Odyssey in "Cinerama", the IMAX of the day. In fact, HAL 2000 was one alpha character from I.B.M. And yes, they still exist.

    Why doesn't Tesla sell an option that fills the "frunk" with a battery for more range

    I have discovered a dichotomy with my 2019 "Raven" Long-Range Model S. With about 370 miles of rated range, I have to keep it charged the "sweet" spot when charging in my garage. Charging at 40 amps (50 amp circuit) reaches about 28 miles an hour max. Normally, I charge at night with a...

    Advice needed: used MX vs brandnew 2020 Raven

    You may find that Tesla does not permit FSD to be sold or transferred to a new owner. The level 3 hardware remains, but the software is Tesla's intellectual property. It may be de-featured when you purchase the car and transfer the ownership. So add another $7-8,000 to the used model. Get...

    Advice needed: used MX vs brandnew 2020 Raven

    I would agree that the six seat (unless absolutely want) is a better config than the 7 seat. Keep in mind the six seats do not fold flat, so if that is a requirement, then the 5 or 7 may be desired. I seldom use the 2 rear seats in my 6 seater.
  31. Aljohn

    Advice needed: used MX vs brandnew 2020 Raven

    Raven is more efficient on longer trips and has suspension sensors and different shocks. Otherwise similar to the non-raven variant. You have to make the decision based on needs/wants. More over, check which MCU is in the 3-year old Model X. One other consideration is what else has Tesla...

    Model X windshield wiper replacement blades?

    Cool, will give a try

    Model X windshield wiper replacement blades?

    ops. Clean the OUTSIDE of window to remove residual film with a single edge razor blade (use a holder) and simple rubbing alcohol. Pain thinner is not a good alternative due the vehicle's rubber, plastic and painted surfaces. Simply, with a cloth, generously place the alcohol on a portion of...

    Falcon wing door just opened, no reason and no warning, now what?

    go to Vehicle setting and make sure you do not have "1" press to close all. If this is NOT selected the default is 3 consecutive presses to close the doors. That will save your head and nerves.

    Autopark on Model X?

    Yes, AP1 cars can auto park. Whether parallel or perpendicular, you need to pass the space framed on both side by two vehicles SLOWLY. A "P" will appear with a Start Icon on the center screen. Press Start and release brake. If the brake or steering is manually operated, the auto park will...

    Falcon wing door just opened, no reason and no warning, now what?

    Keep in mind that Tesla changed the Key Fob "Close" a couple of years ago to 3 rapid presses from 1 as the standard. Several incidences were documented of unintentional pressing the top of the Fob causing the door(s) to close prematurely. I didn't think it was an big deal, until I tried to...

    Anyone received delivery of 2019 'Raven' Refresh?

    My S took longer and then it was destroyed in transport. Reset and started over. Tip: Keep a watch on Inventory cars in your area that match your config. That happened to me.... I didn't have a VIN and was 2-3 months out and all of a sudden an inventory car shipped exactly the same as my...

    Car won’t update.. anyway to find out why?

    The Voice Command/Visualization update is 2019.40.50.x, so you are not that far behind (week 39 vs. week 40 Firmware). I know a MCU1/AP1 owner who does not have the voice updates, so you are not alone/forgotten. I understood through readings that Tesla was prioritizing AP3 cars for new...

    Need help with TeslaCam

    I am not quite sure how Tesla determines the point where 'Sentry' will stop recording. With the size of your SSD then most likely never. However, if Tesla determines that point as a percent of drive available, then maybe so. So give it a try, and it the "day" comes that Sentry stops working...

    Need help with TeslaCam

    It will over-write the TeslaCam files. Once Sentry files are saved (in a separate folder), they remain on the drive until manually deleted. I "suppose" this is in case the owner doesn't see anything of significance when Sentry is Activated. Therefore at any time after an incident (should it...

    Need help with TeslaCam

    @AndreyATC Congrats. Keep in mind that Sentry Cam saves do not delete, nor do "save cams". So from time to time you will need to delete those files manually.

    Upgraded Software to 40.50.1 - Voice command not working

    Just installed 40.50.7 on my S. Found out that you MUST remove the FOB from the USB port -- then reset the vehicle for the voice commands to return/work. I couldn't get any commands to work -- even old ones -- then I rebooted without the FOB in and everything worked, including the new...

    Need help with TeslaCam

    @AndreyATC A 128GB drive can't be formatted with a a Windows PC as FAT 32. Windows will format at FAT32EXT (extended) which is not supported for Tesla Cam. You will have to use external drive management software to format anything greater than 32GB as FAT32. Be sure there is NO music on...

    Voice Commands in 2019.40.50

    ah. Tried removing the TeslaCam FOB with a soft reboot....not working on 50.1... guess I have to wait to 50.5 for the X.

    Car won’t update.. anyway to find out why?

    Being on 36.2.1 is not unusual. My 2019 Model S was at that level until last week. My Model X was at 40.1, so I expected the Model S to catch up. NOPE. They both undated to 40.50 (FSD Visualizations) the same night. The S installed the other updates simultaneously. I suspect that Tesla...

    No more P100D badge on newest ModelS Performance with Ludicrous package.....? Why?

    GREAT!! There may be a delay, since everyone in TESLA is helping deliveries for the end of year. Good Luck.

    No more P100D badge on newest ModelS Performance with Ludicrous package.....? Why?

    You need your Final Purchase Agreement. The badge doesn't license Ludicrous -- It is only a badge. Check your Final Purchase/order agreement on your Tesla Page. Print a copy of the Purchase/Order agreement (the one than show the final purchase price, taxes, down payment and final payment...

    Audio input levels for different sources

    Interesting. Is your vehicle MCU 1 or 2?
  50. Aljohn

    Audio input levels for different sources

    A little more technical information than "ick".would be helpful. I use USB music on a FOB and my (ancient) IPOD. Also have access phone's music via Bluetooth (no need or separate USB). Plugging the phone into the USB defaults to charge. Don't use Spotify so can't comment on it performance.
