    I've been waiting years and years for fsd, and still zip, nada. Not even offered a beta test...

    What about us eh? We don't count? We paid too you know. Or am I being, you know, seeing myself as a victim? Two guys go to a Tesla website. An Aussie and a Yank. They both buy the same fsd feature with the same text advertising. They both pay a comparable amount taking into account...

    Nice analysis, but that doesn't quite address the jokers who bought a new Tesla about 6 years ago with the promise that it had the hardware for full FSD and that it was essentially coming soon. But you know, what really irks me is not the time it is taking. It's the, for lack of a better word...

    Gee this sux. You go on Twitter, YouTube, Google, and people are raving on about beta testing version 10 or something. Meanwhile... Down under.... How much longer? Can't say. Will we ever? Can't say. Not even soon? Yeah ok, can say, not soon. Sux Sux Sux

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    My Samsung Smartthings hub arrived last night. So far the auto scheduling kind of works! A few teething problems but it's generally pretty cool. For the life of me I can't understand why the basic Tesla app can't do those basic things. It's as if the battery was rushed to market without any...

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    That's amazing, I never knew it could do that

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    Then shouldn't they call it PSD? Partial self driving? Otherwise they are just.... You know.... Full of it

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    Well I would love that setup. A friend of mine told me that in the US, they have these AC units that turn on at night when electricity is cheap, and they make these huge ice blocks... And then during the day when electricity is expensive and AC is required, they have fans blowing air over the...

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    Semantics eh? I think, then, the F in FSD stands for something completely different.
  9. Z

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    Yeah so here's the logic I can't understand: "We are not going to release version 9 to the Aussie plebs because it is not perfected yet... So they can keep using the even more imperfect version." I mean, why can't WE be beta testers too? I want to play. I've paid. I'm safe. Indulge me.

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    What on earth is causing all those jagged bumps from the grid. What are you cutting diamonds or something?
  11. Z

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    Well it is genuinely upsetting. I mean I for one am really sad. You know when I first bought FSD many years ago, I used to Google search Tesla every night to see what progress had been made. Was I over-eager? I mean I thought I purchased something that was kind of imminent. I only took them...

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    So unfortunate. By that time, we'll be dinosaurs.
  13. Z

    FSD v9.0 in Australia is just a con isn't it?

    Honestly. There's all this talk about v9.0 being late and all, and now it's finally released. Right? Not to us chum. I mean our money was released. When we bought the car and chose the FSD option. But the best we have so far are just YouTube clips of the few that get to test it in the US...

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    Actually I haven't given it much time to work out... Truth be told I've been a little too impatient with it. But I have also bought a smartthings hub. Hope that works.

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    You know, that's what I thought! BUT instead it wants to start the day with 54% battery charge and for some dumb reason it starts discharging well in the off-peak period... Crazy algorithm man. Next time i send screen shots...

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    Ohhhh, hadn't thought of that...I was thinking daily/weekly benefits.... But yearly benefits, that's a whole new equation... My head hurts
  17. Z

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    Ahh but you see, having bought the battery, we are pretty much lumped with the 'round trip efficacy' and 'lifecycle cost' already. As Holmes would say, "the game's afoot". Either it charges from off-peak-grid or it charges from solar. I prefer the cheaper option. The app prefers the latter...

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    Is there a "domestic version' available?
  19. Z

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    Off peak charging from 10pm is literally cheaper than solar charging the battery the following day. In lieu of solar charging, you sell that excess solar to the grid for 17c feed-in tariff whereas off-peak charging from grid is only 15c. Particularly on rainy days during peak times, you want...

    Optimizing PW TOU settings

    Can't we just please schedule a full charge every night on off peak? It seems so obvious to me. It's so darn frustrating that we either have to manually do this basic function each night or hack the darn thing.
  21. Z

    Very unsatisfying Tesla app for powerwall, especially for Australia

    The Tesla app for powerwall is quite deficient in that it doesn't even allow you to schedule very basic operations of the powerwalll such as charge and discharge. Especially with the time-of-use that we have in Australia and the feed-in tarrifs that AGL provides, the app ends up costing you...

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    Ahh, that's true. Forgot. Oh well, can request it today.

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    Well Paul... Change your plan to time-of-use. Save yourself thousands a year. Use the pwall to reduce grid usage during peak times to zero and only buy cheap cheap power at night! Seriously, change online today

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    Tesla this morning changed the motherboard in my gateway. I then connected to the app within 2 minutes Yyeeaahh!!! My app does not (yet) display time-of-use settings in 'customise' and the technician said that takes 24hrs to unlock. (Of course that's what the other guy said about app access...

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    Well that will be the first thing I do when I have an app that works. Sadly I just sent a rather nasty letter to Tesla withholding payment for the gateway and threatening litigation if they don't come to the party and resolve this issue :( Installing the powerwalll was supposed to be a really...

    You know stories like that actually scare the crap out of me...I wouldn't know where to begin

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    Day 6 and the Powerwall still can't be accessed by the app. Also my requested time-of-use settings have still not been entered. Tesla has gone all quiet. Do you think I ought to request that Tesla change my gateway to one that actually works?
  29. Z

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    The latest today was that for Tesla Gateways that begin with the first few characters of my serial number, they are having problems connecting them to the app. (Go figure right?). Anyway, they are (supposedly) working on it. {To me, if they have to start re-writing code it's gunna take...

    Tesla can't connect my Powewall to my app - AU

    I got a Powerwall installed last Thursday. But since that time it still does not show up on my Tesla app. My installer first said it takes about half an hour after he commissioned it. Then he said it takes 24 hours. Then Tesla support said the commissioning was invalid and they would...

    New AU FSD vrs USA FSD post June 21

    My take on this: If Tesla is perceiving depth from the size of the object (as opposed to binocular vision), then it can only make an assessment of its relative distance if it actually recognises the object and has a size comparison in its database. Ok for cars, bikes, humans, traffic cones...

    When will Australia get access to the FSD beta program?

    Most optimistic assessment ever imho. Unless you mean Sept next year, or the year after that!

    When will Australia get access to the FSD beta program?

    So we don't even get a mention?

    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    When I'm wrong, I say I'm wrong, and it now appears that I was...so I've said it. My MCU1/AP2 model S just received the latest update and it now has the Navigate on Autopilot option. I have not tested it yet but I am accepting it on face value that it is therefore capable of being used on the...

    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    Has anyone said that those who purchased FSD get their MCU1 upgraded as well as their AP2.0? Seriously the early adopters are going to feel it really hard... Very disappointing...
  37. Z

    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    I knew you would say that!!! But it'll rust before it drives itself I bet... Prove me wrong.
  38. Z

    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    So the AP2 cars can't easily update. The full FSD will probably not be released (withheld) until all the AP2 cars are rust buckets anyway. In the meantime they release "features" piece by piece (like NoA and traffic light recognition, stop sign recognition) to keep the bulk of their customers...

    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    I have not heard of a single car that has undergone this upgrade... Anyone? Anyone? I do feel that AP2.0 cars with FSD have been abandoned.... They are certainly in no rush to rectify this injustice... Crap hardware was bought on the promise that it could do FSD. Then they start...

    Navigate On Autopilot in Australia

    I am also in this boat. Sadly I don't think Tesla is going to update us any time soon at all. So we pay early for full self driving, and we get none of it, just promises, while others who buy cheaper model 3s much later already have the latest features. And soon Tesla cars will receive an...

    Telsa puts Australia last...

    I'm not saying it's wholly their fault (our Government doesn't help), but they do put us last. 1. We don't have the homelink device (but we don't get a discount either - we pay for it); 2. We don't get a browser (again no discount - yes it is software, but we still pay for other software...

    Defeating the Autopilot Nag

    You know... there really ought to be in the settings somewhere, an option to turn the nag off. That way Tesla can always say "The driver chose to turn it off get off our back about it" instead of trying to impose a nanny-state on all of us. Turning it off can come with all the warnings...
