    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    COVID 19 tends to expand when people are in close proximity indoors. School, traditional work environments and the use of transit (trains, buses, planes, etc.) encourage transmission. The present strains are more infectious than influenza and in that regard are similar to the classes of viruses...

    2022 Shareholder vote

    I read through my proxy statement and does it really matter how I vote? The big institutional investors will decide the vote along with Elon.

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    My 530e has been no masterpiece of tech either. The backup camera stopped working and needed an update. The locking door handles failed and needed replacement. The trunk kept getting stuck. The front passenger seat rattled if unoccupied. The battery lost half of its warm weather range in two...

    Toronto Long Term parking with EV charging

    I've used the PnF valet parking at Montreal Trudeau and even though the policy is to provide complementary charging if you ask beforehand, they've even done it when I forgot to ask.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    It's fun to pick on the Fed, but what we should really worry about is the ability of the simulation models that they use to test scenarios.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    I posted the original Twitter thread. We have no idea who else has it. The flag could be enabled for either Tesla employees or other people who are testing the option. greentheonly is often tipped off on hidden features like this.

    Nor have I. Maybe it's being tested in a limited USA region.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Did I miss something in this thread? @greentheonly on Twitter demonstrated that FSD beta allows alternate navigation routes. 😯

    CCS Adapter - ?

    At the moment, there's not too much danger to Tesla losing a lot of SC revenue because of the CCS1 adapter. That might also be true if the adapter was readily available directly from Tesla NA. The NA CCS network has a number of disadvantages when compared to the SC network. You need a separate...

    MASTER THREAD: Auto Wiper functionality, complaints, praise, etc.

    It's either a software bug or bugs 🪲. The latter is more common. If bug splats interfere with the front camera's vision, it triggers the wipers in an attempt to clean that part of the windshield. If you have FSD active, the wipers are forced to be set to auto and can't be overridden by the driver.

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    That's why Tesla owners have been agitating for a crowd-sharing option that would automatically alert FSD of hazards like potholes. Instead of blowing a ton of cash on Twitter, maybe Elon should buy Waze from Google. 😄

    Did you email Harumio and ask why they cancelled your order?

    FSD Really This Bad?

    "exhausting" and "nerve racking" are hardly the words that come to mind when I think about driving FSD beta. I'd say that "entertaining" and "frustrating" would be my choice.
  14. jabloomf1230

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Pretty much every negative you listed is a positive for me. I also have a BMW 530e and I find iDrive to be a confusing mess of knobs and screens. The displays are also overly complicated and there is a surplus of buttons. A car is not supposed to be a living room from 1980.

    Thoughts on the BMW i4 M50?

    I assume that you are referring to non-standard range testing. There is no way to know whether a non-governmental testing protocol (magazines, websites, etc.) is biased by who does the testing. USEPA, NEDC and WLTP use different mixes of highway and city driving which leads to slightly...

    FSD Beta 10.12

    This behavior was introduced in recent versions of FSD beta. It's obviously a bug caused by fixing something else that was broken. Even using the scroll wheel to reduce the maximum speed doesn't help. The problem is so obvious that I would be surprised if it isn't fixed in the next version of...

    Elon Musk

    Elon is harvesting the fruits of his labors, so to speak. The more children that one fathers, the more likely it is that an offspring will exhibit either behavior that is non-traditional or rare medical conditions. That's just a consequence of probabilities.

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    I have no idea whether the visualizations provide any hints to the driver of the behavior of FSD beta. However, I do know that the city streets "blue cars" represent higher priority objects in the NN prediction hierarchy. I'm guessing that pedestrians rank higher and the gray cars are lower than...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    If that happens it won't be a decision based on safety. It will be political statement. If serious accident rates using FSD beta remain substantially below the national average, it makes no sense to limit it, unless an elected official is hustling for votes. This could explain all of Elon's...

    FSD beta expansion to new beta testers June 2022

    Based on the TeslaFi cohort of cars, there were 2355 cars on FSD beta prior to the recent surge. Now there are 3418, but there are a trickle of pending installs (today 30). These numbers seem consistent with an overall increase in FSD beta users from 60,000 to ~90,000. There seems to room to add...

    Tesla Charging in NYC

    This doesn't address your question but NYC is by choice extremely car unfriendly. Parking is disastrous, competent repair shops are rare and bridge tolls are the equivalent of usury. Google Maps only shows 8 gas stations in all of Manhattan. Other sources from 5 years ago variously estimate...

    Any other owners second guess if their next car should be another Tesla?

    There is a freeware app that allows you to use Android Auto in a Tesla (TeslAA) without adding any additional hardware. The advantage over the Tesla stock UI is negligible. Siri is better than Tesla's implementation of voice commands, but it's still not all that good IMO.

    FSD Beta stops short of my destination

    The problem stems from the navigation using the street address for a destination. If a destination has a big parking lot, you can try creating a waypoint in the lot and that may help.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    It's a known bug. Elon even tweeted about what's causing it and that Tesla will fix it with an update. Unless you have something that you need on the USB drive, reformatting the drive fixes the issue at least for a while. The problem does reoccur, though.

    TeslaWaze updates (was: TeslaWaze is Done!)

    The Tesla browser is the freeware Chromium for Linux. It is the same base code that Google uses for Chrome. It is a weak implementation because Tesla has never used the most recent version of Chromium (which is constantly updated) and Tesla adds code to the base browser. It doesn't help that...

    New FSD beta testers (June 2022) - First experiences

    Without a destination, FSD beta tends to continue straight but will signal and turn right at a tee intersection. Roundabouts do confuse it. It stops in cul de sacs and at dead ends (no mapped roadway available). Manual use by the driver of the turn signal stalk will only cause a lane change.

    Elon & Twitter

    Getting back Elon. There is potential for someone here to rearrange "My way or the highway" so it's specific to him as a leader. Is he really that dictatorial or is it just some kind of managerial schtick, designed to motivate the average employee? I would like to believe that it's the latter...

    Elon & Twitter

    Some people here aren't going to like the above response, but it is the definitive answer to the assertion that employees have the right to unfettered free speech. That said, there are extenuating circumstances regarding Elon Musk's purchase of Twitter. My guess is that those Twitter employees...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    I'm beginning to wonder if purchasing the CCS adapter through harum.io is actually a benefit to Tesla. It saves Tesla NA from having to handle a large number of orders which most likely would result in bursts of heavy demand followed by long droughts of out of stock notices. The adapters are...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    Yep. That would work also.
  37. jabloomf1230

    CCS Adapter - ?

    If for example, GM licenced the proprietary charging protocol that Tesla uses, GM could modify the Bolt's electronics to accept a passive adapter. Recent Teslas are smart enough to handle TPC, CCS1 and CHAdeMO, but other NA BEVs either are only CCS1 or CHAdeMO.
  38. jabloomf1230

    CCS Adapter - ?

    This discussion applies to NA. The Tesla OEM CCS1 to Tesla unit is a passive adapter which works for Teslas that are CCS enabled. An adapter that allows CCS1 cars to charge at a Tesla SC would have to be an active adapter, similar to the Lectron CCS1 adapter that tricks a Tesla into thinking the...

    New FSD beta testers (June 2022) - First experiences

    Any specific firmware version of FSD beta sometimes gives the appearance of learning, but any perceived improvement is likely due to changes in traffic conditions, lighting and weather. It's also possible that the error term in the model contributes to variability.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    That's nothing new for me. The routing used by Tesla is FSD's Achilles heel. I am constantly impressed at the bizarre routes, using roads and streets that no human driver would ever choose (unless they were fleeing law enforcement). If waypoints worked correctly, the driver could tailor the...

    CCS Adapter for North America

    As someone who also periodically drives on the NYS Thruway, I believe that there is a reason for the lack of DC chargers at rest stops. Once the Thruway eliminated toll booths and went to electronic billing, the rest stops became vestigial. Major Thruway exits have adequate facilities without...

    Separate Electric Meter?

    None that I can think of offhand, unless they have different rate schedules. I installed a second meter for my charger, so I'll explain why. We have underground service to our house and the meter is on the terminal pole, approximately 200' from the house. The pole is next to a nice, paved...

    TeslaWaze updates (was: TeslaWaze is Done!)

    The crash in TeslaWaze always occurs for me when TW does a complete refresh of the screen. I wonder if it's not a bug in the Tesla browser, but rather TW is exceeding the bitrate allowed by Tesla while driving. The author of TeslAA, the web interface for Android Auto, had to recently reduce its...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Who knew that Elon had Jim Inhofe as a friend? Maybe Elon should make a list of all the times that environmentalists were annoyingly wrong? He seems to be affected with flight of ideas.

    FSD Beta 10.12

    Try doing the steering wheel two button /pedal reset and see if that helps. You can also now clear the browser cache. I haven't tried that because I assume that it clears all your favorites.

    Switching From Cable to Wireless EV Charging?

    Bmw already had a production car with wireless charging (530e). You just drove over a charge plate and the car automatically charged. The power losses were obviously a concern. https://www.motortrend.com/news/bmw-530e-now-available-wireless-charging-u-s/

    FSD Beta 10.12

    It works for me. Did you get the new location permission prompt from Chromium when you ran TeslaWaze? It asks to either allow once, allow forever or prevent? The bad news is that TeslaWaze crashes the browser every ten minutes or so. It appears to occur when new map data loads.
