    Is leaving Tesla plugged in while not charging really beneficial?

    Good. I keep it at 50% or less unless going on a trip. I actually wish the GUI would allow you to set a limit less than 50%. You say always plug in. Even when leaving for just a few hours or overnight? Thanks for the input.

    Is leaving Tesla plugged in while not charging really beneficial?

    Read my post Rocky. It says 50% not 90%. Announcement?? No I did not recommend an announcement. Somebody on this thread says it harms the battery life to charge over 50% . I doubt that hence my comment. Does it??

    Is leaving Tesla plugged in while not charging really beneficial?

    This is another topic entirely. I never charge to over 50% unless doing a trip the next day. You can't set less than 50% as the setpoint anyway. I find it odd Tesla wouldn't give a warning if it harms long term health of the batteries to exceed 50%. The original question in the thread, is it...

    Is leaving Tesla plugged in while not charging really beneficial?

    Good question. I get the whole point of your question. If you don't need to charge, yet you CAN plug in, SHOULD you plug in? If battery has say 50% charge or more, left only overnight, is there ANY point to plugging in? I have wondered the same. There is hassle to constantly...

    Supercharger details popup obscured by list of nearby superchargers. Workaround?

    This problem recently surfaced in a new upgrade! Have had MY for almost two years, the UI has gone backwards in recent upgrades. This is one example.

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    Overall hard to beat our Model Y. Other electric SUV's seem expensive. Would be interested to know if any around $50K. It's amazing the generous interior storage the MY offers for the overall exterior size and appearance of the vehicle. A few shortcomings (wiper controls) and some of the...

    Pickup is in three days - still no request for final payment?

    On pickup day, we went to the dealership, checked the car, signed all the paperwork, set up the app, paired to car, and the rep gaves us our keycards. Then he said have a great weekend and enjoy your new Tesla! We were about to walk to the car and drive away when I asked, what about our final...

    Trip planner disappeared after upgrade??

    It does not seem possible to downgrade. Too bad. The new UI is less useful. Nav window doesn't show the battery level at destination on the screen like it did before, you now need to constantly scroll down with your finger to the bottom of the window to see it. Not safe when driving and it...

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    It's confusing at first. Well I wasn't confused when I drove my Tesla out of the lot over a year ago after never test driving one. UI was easy out of the box and took a couple minutes to get used to. This one is not. This UI takes a couple days to get used to, is not a good UI. Especially...

    This new UI sucks

    Good point, the bot assumes the car drives itself while the human plays. In theory, that would work.

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    Different, cool, silly. No, I bragged to friends about how easy the Tesla is to drive, the simple intuitive driver friendly UI, and the great Trip Planner in the Nav so you never run out of charge. After this upgrade, I stopped bragging. Now I say it's different cool, silly. They are not...

    Holiday Update (2021.44.25.2)- A Big Disappointment

    One man's step backward is another man's going forward. I'll gladly take a step backward and uninstall the upgrade and go forward. Is there a way to do this?

    Profile Name on main screen gone.

    Don't assume things are changed for good reasons or some roadmap. Sometimes people make bad decisions or mistakes are made. Or its designed by a bot (sarc). So far the verdict on this "new" UI is thumbs down. It`s hard to even call it new when it is so clearly a step backward.
  14. N

    Profile Name on main screen gone.

    Correct. Ah the little things become big things in actual real life scenarios. This UI is so much less than the previous UI, it's hard to believe it was designed by a human driver. Designed by bot?

    New version should have come with a WARNING

    Upgrade should have come with a warning "If you like the UI, don't upgrade'. "If you don't like the UI, upgrade". Wonder how many would have upgraded or passed on it?? Now it's too late and we are stuck with a step backward UI. There is no way to downgrade and have the better UI, which in this...

    Downgraded UI in v11

    Has nothing to do with change being scary whatever that means. Take a survey of Tesla owners from a year ago, do you like the UI? Take the same survey now. I'll bet it's lower AFTER this upgrade. Yes it is possible to change a good thing and make it less than good.

    This new UI sucks

    Everything you say is true. The UI was one of the best things about the car, have had many upgrades over past 18 months of owning my MY, this is the first one literally made me mad. U mad bro? Yes. I've been searching how to downgrade, anybody know??
  18. N

    This new UI sucks

    Agree. I'll never forget jumping in my brand new Tesla in Aug 2020 and noting how easy and intuitive the UI was. No training needed and how it all made sense. Unfortunately this latest UI is NOT intuitive. So many vital things hidden, while unimportant things are elevated. Was this designed...

    Sorry, I actually like the new UI :)

    My first reaction is negative. And no, it's not because it is different. The UI has had a few changes over past year and each one seemed better. This one is a step backwards in terms of driver friendly. The most glaring issue, the battery level at destination and supercharger stops much...

    "Small battery" fully discharges in a month or so if the vehicle is not operated?

    He's not "my" tow truck driver, he's the one dispatched by Tesla .......Yeah I should have just told him he's full of ship, and has no idea why the small batteries go dead and stick to towing. The point of the thread was, why would a *plugged in* Tesla go dead simply because it is not being...

    "Small battery" fully discharges in a month or so if the vehicle is not operated?

    So there is a small battery but it will be charged even when the vehicle is not operated. This sounds better.

    Trip planner disappeared after upgrade??

    After posting this, I did go back to my vehicle and spend more time with it, and finally found you need to scroll down the entire nav route screen to finally see the battery level at destination. Before it showed it to you immediately after entering the destination which was totally driver...

    "Small battery" fully discharges in a month or so if the vehicle is not operated?

    So while driving with the tow truck driver to get my flat tire repaired (4 flats in 16 months, all rear tires, that's another story) I got to hear interesting/crazy stories about why Teslas need to be towed. He said a biggie is the "small battery" going dead making the vehicle inoperable...

    Trip planner disappeared after upgrade??

    After recent upgrade, my ModelY no longer displays Trip Planner features in the Nav route, supercharger stops, battery level at destination, etc. Kind of important and its now gone! Trip Planner is enabled in Nav settings as it has always been in my vehicle, but no longer shows up in the...

    . . . but what do you miss from your old car?

    I know and I know.....continually pressing the button like a monkey in a heavy downpour is not a solution. Taking your eye off the road to look at the screen, then taking one hand off the steering wheel to press a button on the screen, while driving in a heavy downpour, is not safe.

    Key card required despite my phone being available

    It does seem to happen fairly frequently with my wife's IPhone. I thinks it's the 12. A couple times a month. Less often or maybe never with my Samsung I cannot recall. Turn bt off/on or unlock with the app seems to work. A great idea to always have the keycard with you as backup you never...

    I can't wait for the next update! Phantom braking is driving me nuts.

    We like many things about our model Y. But Not the autosteer or autopilot (TACC). Will try autopilot from time to time but still phantom braking does happen on the latest release. There is no obvious pattern, except this: my wife is napping in the passenger seat, I'm driving on the freeway...

    Duplicate in-car nav experience on a device?

    Any way to get the same or similar in-car Tesla nav experience on a device? I know there are route planners but......would like something almost like the Tesla nav. Related suggestions for Tesla, would be nice to know the $$ rates of the superchargers and the nearby businesses as the nav...

    Removing the 2 support boards in the back of Model Y (temporarily)

    There are 2 support boards in the back of Model Y, easily removable. I am thinking to temporarily remove them to give a bit more storage space for a move, loading bags of clothing, linens, etc, so not heavy weight and no sharp corners. Anybody see any issue? Seems ok to me as long as nothing...

    Autopilot Freak Out

    Have had enough phantom breaking incidents with Autopilot to know it has flaws. Have noticed no consistent pattern. SUSPECT it has something to do with perhaps glare from the sun or sun angle or maybe reflections or shadows from other objects near or on the roadway. Its all done by cameras...

    Road trip and supercharger stops

    Tesla should provide the same or better info than google reviews on the nav map. After all, it's their superchargers and their customers.

    Road trip and supercharger stops

    Wow that's awesome info about A/B stalls. Did not know that. Going forward I'll choose a stall with nobody sharing and put an orange cone in the other space. Just kidding.

    Road trip and supercharger stops

    Great info. Will check out routeplanner. I do like making the minimum number of stops as possible. Speaking of charging times, my Y normally draws about 100 kW at a 150 kW charger. Highest I've gotten is 110 and sometimes only 50 kW. I'm guessing it depends on the load at the station or...

    Road trip and supercharger stops

    Just completed our first real "family road trip" from SF to LA and back. Before this all our trips were just a few hours on a well known route. Overall we give the Nav and superchargers on our road trip a 'B'. Pretty good but room for improvement. comment and questions: 1. Supercharger...

    Nav system showing alternate routes?

    Exactly. There are times you'd prefer to take another route, but doesn't seem possible, it chooses one and that's that. I hope they add this in a future update, would be awesome.

    Nav system showing alternate routes?

    I generally like the Tesla nav system. But......would be nice to show alternate routes to a destination, or be able to drag the route to another highway as you can do with google maps. From what I can tell, it picks a route for you. To change it, seems like you need to choose some waypoint...

    Wipers don't work properly in Auto

    @jjrandorin Right. When they all do it, it's not a warranty issue. It's called a feature. Just know your auto wipers will not work properly. Using voice command seems to be the safest way to control wipers while driving.

    Auto Windshield Wipers

    The auto function of the wipers is glitchy for sure. Everybody reports it and after a few weeks of owning a Tesla you'll see it for yourself. I'm not sure there is a fix since they use cameras for detection which sounds cool but is actually not cool. The best "solution" I've heard is using...

    With touchscreen freezing, why would I buy FSD

    Have not had the screen freeze. I'll try FSD when- 1. Autopilot works flawlessly. I still experience sudden phantom slowdowns on the freeway for no apparent reason. Fortunately nobody was behind me. 2. Autosteer works. Tried it a few times, not ready for prime time. 3. I don't get camera...

    Bluetooth scan doesn't find Samsung S21 5G

    Bluetooth scan doesn't find Samsung S21 5G

    When I do a bluetooth scan on my Model Y interface it doesn't find my Samsung S21 5G phone. Bluetooth enabled on phone. Tesla PhoneKey on phone works fine. Had the same behavior with my old Samsung Galaxy S7, phonekey worked fine but the scan couldn't find the phone. My Model Y finds...

    Charging on 110v outlet and cold weather

    I was using the Tesla mobile connector with a 6 foot extension cord. GFCI outlet, it didn't trip, the 15 amp circuit breaker at the box tripped. Have used this same setup many times in the past, same outdoor outlet, same extension cord, nothing else drawing power from the outlet. 12A current...

    Charging on 110v outlet and cold weather

    Yes I understand. It shows 12 amp draw on the screen and in the app. Nothing else was drawing from the circuit breaker either. However to my surprise the 15 amp circuit breaker tripped after a couple hours (it was getting cold at night). As I said, I had charged for hours from this exact same...
