    Ok, I tried Tidal, and…(and “premium” audio too)

    I was So you're prioritizing screen control over sound quality? That's backwards IMO. I don't find the interface to be all that bad and I almost never rely on voice control as I end up having to look at the screen to see that it got it right anyway. I was driving around yesterday, making...

    Car won't connect to wifi

    I've had my wifi not connect a few times and sometimes all I need to do is let it go to sleep, other times a reboot is necessary. But as we said at the help desk when I did that kind of thing, when all else fails, reboot, and RTFM.

    why no beep for backup sensor in Model 3? [rear cross traffic warning]

    Yes, I had the warning go off the other day when I purposely went around a car that ended up in the blind spot while I was moving back into the lane. He was stationary though. It was a pretty ordinary maneuver, at least for Brooklyn.

    Wiki Superchargers Visited

    On my trip to Buffalo this week I was thinking they need two things at the superchargers, one was trash cans, and the other was squeegees. Hmmm, sounds like what gas stations all have! And since I have a bad knee at the moment having a few vending machines near them wouldn't be a bad idea...

    This was 6/13 to Buffalo and 6/14 return. The problem in Tannersville is that you are looking at the entrance to the mall and you look right past the chargers in the corner, and once in the mall you can't see them from anywhere. The other guy said the same thing. Once you turn in it just says...

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    I have an Oppo 93 player myself, and also my trusty old Rega Planar 3 TT that I've more recently tweaked. I've skipped the CD ripping stage though because I never thought of my CD collection as being all that great. Instead I stream on Qobuz as my regular listening, and Qobuz won out over...

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    This is why I listen to hi-res as much as possible. The CD standard may be theoretically correct but implementation didn't keep up. I've seen the comment that CD could barely get you 13 bits reliably, and way too many samples were extrapolated. Current streaming is better because it doesn't...

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    That's right. It is just that once you are moving around there is always something else that you want to hear too and having the hotspot makes it possible in hifi CD quality. I hate calling it hifi. That insinuates that this is something special when it's been around since the mid '80s and it...

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    What I find is that when I forget to turn on the hotspot, which is frequent, the music sounds muddy and indistinct. Yes you'll hear the highs and the lows, but it sounds like the music is distilled to only hear what is necessary which is essentially what they do with the compression. But what...

    Model 3 trunk beeping twice and stopping halfway?

    It seems to not be rolling out. I worry when a release doesn't come out because that means there are problems, and that goes for any software. Sometimes they should just fix a few things at a time and not introduce new problems.

    Holy crap Tidal makes the audio system come ALIVE.

    I use my phone for the hotspot and haven't run out of the 40gb data I'm allowed yet. At the same time, I don't use my car all that much either except on long trips. I'm retired and live in NYC where most of the time I take the subway to get around, at least into Manhattan. And Brooklyn is so...

    Tesla 3 trunk safety

    Maybe the pillow muffled the chimes??? It isn’t very loud. Have you seen all the threads about the trunk not opening all the way Because it is too sensitive to obstructions?

    I finally found roof shades that for M3 2021!

    The Tesmanian shades fit really well and block out a fair amount of the sun. That said, don't expect miracles if you park your car at Riis Park in that shadeless lot all day when it is 90 degrees out. That's why we have remote turn on of the AC! I guess it's getting close to that time of year.

    Door pocket separation

    there is probably a broken clip. You need to pull the panel off to replace the broken clip and then put it back on. In the process you'll probably break another clip. A car stereo place would have clips since they take the door panels off almost every car they install in.

    anyone know how to get full screen browser on latest software

    I just tried it in my '21 SR+ US version and it worked. As far as I could tell though it doesn't allow input of an address after the first prompt. The other thing I tried is music from my streaming app Qobuz on the web and it does NOT play when put in drive, just like the built in browser.

    2020 Tesla Crashes in Ohio

    If the regen is turned off the car will keep rolling. While I have it on, on those cold days when it is "temporarily unavailable" it is actually a little unnerving. You expect the car to stop and it keeps rolling. It doesn't even slow down like an automatic transmission, more like a manual...

    My question is how they can screw something like this up and let the release go out.

    No. The quality is downgraded over the "premium" subscription. Some premium.

    Trunk only opening halfway sometimes after 2022.8.3 install

    In that case, if you open the trunk with the button under the lip it should just open because you are standing there. If you do it from the console or remotely I can see that as possibly useful. I'll have to see how much it swings out, whether it even protrudes beyond the bumper.

    Trunk only opening halfway sometimes after 2022.8.3 install

    Yea, it happened again to me too. I have to ask though, just what is it trying to prevent? Anybody with their car in such a tight spot that they can't open their trunk would know it. You wouldn't be able to stand up in it.

    Brooklyn NYS Inspection?

    You can take it to any inspection station, just be sure that they know what they are doing when putting it on a lift if they try. You can't just put the arms anywhere, there are designated spots. The car's bottom is also the battery and you don't want it lifted by those. If you can, just...

    Does your tesla automatically connect to your iphone hotpot?

    The iPhone doesn't broadcast for security reasons. If it did broadcast anybody could see it and there are ways to hack into it. Your Apple ID is what connects all of your Apple devices together. It knows when your phone is in proximity, the same way your calls will ring through to other...

    Trunk only opening halfway sometimes after 2022.8.3 install

    Mine started doing this too and I figured it would end up being software. This thread just confirms it. I just have to ask though. How do they manage to screw things up like this? What developer thought to go into the code that would somehow prevent a trunk from opening? Do they not have...

    Audio connectivity, Qobuz, Hi-res?

    After giving it a look, it would require running the speaker leads into the DSP/amp and then out again to the speakers and give you DSP on top of the car's dsp. In parallel with the speaker in, you also would have a USB input from your phone so you could select either. This will preserve the...

    Custom horn not working? [boombox only works in park due to NHTSA mandated recall]

    How loud? Silent. What type? None. It is NOISE. We don't need any more noise. All cars that make noise currently are just one-offs, custom mods, and are probably illegal anyway. Now multiply that by the number of Teslas sold and you can see the problem if even 1% of owners do it. And...

    Custom horn not working? [boombox only works in park due to NHTSA mandated recall]

    Just imagine every car on the road being able to make its own sound. Just because Tesla is the first production car to be capable of that doesn't mean it will be the last. Imagine every idiot that now drives a muscle car that they've souped up to be loud having the capability to make stupid...

    New Tesla Model 3 extended range locked me out, Tesla refused to help

    When I rented a blue Tesla in LA more than once I walked up to my white Model 3. I caught myself before I tried to open it in all cases. In LA there are so many of them I'd probably tie a ribbon to mine to distinguish it, like we do with luggage at the airport since every black bag looks...

    Solar Powered decal?

    4 years on mine after the rebates, hopefully the car lasts a lot longer than that. And no powerwall or equivalent either as they are not allowed in NYC due to fire codes. It is net-metered so it goes to the grid. I just did my taxes and the solar credit calculation came within 25 cents of the...

    Turn off audio?

    When I hit stop on the audio screen and then switch to something else the audio controls go away, at least when I'm using Tidal. If I shut the other screen I get just the map filling that entire section. But my guess is that it doesn't always work that way with the other apps.

    Solar Powered decal?

    It isn't like I'm giving them the finger. Just proud of what I have. And it is indirectly solar powered, charged by my panels during the day. In parts of Brooklyn seeing a Tesla is so rare that people stop to ask me about it all the time. It'll be one more thing to tell them that it is...

    Solar Powered decal?

    Two things. First off, the solar does pay for itself in a short period of time after which it is free. Second, the marginal cost of powering the vehicle vs. powering everything else with my install is miniscule. It was going to be installed anyway, so the car charging is icing on the cake...

    Solar Powered decal?

    Has anyone seen any decals (no bumper stickers please) for a solar powered Tesla? My panels just went live the other day and will now drive around for free, mostly anyway. You just gotta rub the ICE owners' noses in it when gas is over $4/gallon.

    Dealer markups drove me to buy a Tesla

    1. Really? Have you ever bought a car from a dealer? You never know what they are going to try to charge you until they sit you down at the desk and start throwing numbers around. Ever try trading a car in at the same time? They'll play with those numbers too. 2. If you buy new on the...

    Dealer markups drove me to buy a Tesla

    I wouldn't call what Tesla does stealthy. They put it right on their website. There is no pressure, no wheeling and dealing. If I wanted to buy the same M3 today that I bought last year it is 10k more and I know that before I click buy. If I say that isn't worth it, nobody is going to hold...

    One more for me, Albany, NY (Colonie Center). We decided that the quickie mart at the Kingston, NY SC was not where we wanted to get food every time we do that trip. It will be our regular stop from now on since we get better than expected usage coming home. It must be slightly downhill.

    Lane departure doesn't ever warn me

    It occurred to me after I drove a rented M3 about a month ago that the lane departure warning never sounds in my car even though I have it on. I don't necessarily want it on but since it is I should be getting warnings. I was on the interstate yesterday and never heard a peep from it. I'd...

    Dealer markups drove me to buy a Tesla

    I paid 36,990 for my SR+ just a little over a year ago and now it is 46,990, exactly $10k more. All the car companies are making their money, it's just that Elon Musk has figured out a way to keep the extra for himself instead of letting a dealer take it. If I didn't like my car so much I'd...

    Tesla Model 3 SR+ 2022 Sound System upgrade - Possible?

    I needed to widen the opening on them a bit so the Infinities would fit flush. I used a utility knife and Dremel with a sanding bit to do it and it didn't take long. The hole patterns are the same so nothing needed to be done with those. The other thing though was that one of the "ears"...

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    Because we all use the superchargers more regularly than the service centers I hope, and people come and go relatively quickly. But sure, the SC will do too, anywhere Teslas congregate.

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    That is a different question than what the OP is asking. I like my white car but also find it a PITA to keep clean and it also doesn't take the touch up paint very well. I'd still get a white car for the look. The OP should go to a supercharger and just see them in all their variations and...

    Tesla Model 3 SR+ 2022 Sound System upgrade - Possible?

    To apply your principle and have a natural sound scene (concert type) you have to leave only the front door speakers (woofer + tweeter). I often go to concerts and I've never heard sound coming from the back ... except for the Pink Floyd concert in Versailles in 1988 with quadraphonic sound!😀...
