    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (West Nashville)

    Although we may never know the reason for the delay the theory I have running through my mind is Tesla diverted V3 cabinets to the new 56 stall site at Firebaugh CA and the 72 stall site at Shanghai Chi-na. That's 32 V3 cabinets for just two other locations. Tesla must have limits to the number...

    Progress finally!! The cabinets have arrived and they are digging trenches.

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    It's hit and miss with Thompson Lane. If you find out its not working there is a new supercharger at Target in Brentwood not a million miles away with 12 V3 stalls that are reliable.

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (Old Hickory Blvd)

    @corywright We have three independent reports of the new Brentwood Target location being open and working. Can you mark it as open please?

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (Old Hickory Blvd)

    I've seen a report from earlier today that this site has been activated and cars are able to charge. Looks like two out of the three cabinets are functional.

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (West Nashville)

    Well there is a Target at Providence Marketplace, lots of good food options around about. Maybe Target/Tesla could be convinced to add it to the list.

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (West Nashville)

    Awesome. Could you add the state of TN to the listing as well pls? When the cabinets arrive I'll get photos and confirm type and quantity of stalls.

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (Old Hickory Blvd)

    As a long-term LEAF owner I can confirm these are Level 2 Chargepoint units. They are very distinctive. The Chargepoint Level 3 units are much bulkier.

    The crew should be wrapping up at this site pretty soon. Now onto the next Nashville supercharger in West Nashville. Supercharger - Nashville, TN (West Nashville) Where equipment is staged and safety fences established.

    Installing signal booster in model 3

    If you have line of sight from your window to the parking garage below a point to point WiFi extender may work. Ubiquiti make gear that can transmit over large air gaps. Any solution (WiFi or LTE) will require power somewhere in the parking garage structure. Without a power source you are sol...

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    Yeah the V3 is much quicker at Thompson Lane, certainly the best choice. The Brentwood SuC does get very busy at times with lines forming. If all else fails there is a CHAdeMO very close to the Service Center at the Mapco gas station. Just a single stall but typically reliable.
  13. JPWhite

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    The cabinets closest to and parallel to the Kroger training center are the ones out of commission. The stalls closer to the bank are working. The Tesla logo is lit on the working stalls.
  14. JPWhite

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    One of the two cabinets is out of commission. The remaining cabinet is charging at regular V3 rates.

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (Old Hickory Blvd)

    They have located them in the best spot IMHO, all the way to the one side of Target just past the CVS at the corner of the building as far away from the bedlam of that shopping area as possible. There's a Longhorn restaurant really close by but no other businesses (other than Target). Shouldn't...

    Supercharger - Nashville, TN (Old Hickory Blvd)

    @BlueShift Construction has begun at Target in Brentwood TN on Old Hickory Blvd. Three cabinets present so 12 stations confirmed for the V3 location.

    NEMA 14-50 is dead - all hail NEMA 6-50

    I had my original portable EVSE upgraded to 240v by evseupgrade.com. Alas they are out of business now. There are 240 alternatives available to supplement the original EVSE that came with the car.

    NEMA 14-50 is dead - all hail NEMA 6-50

    Sounds high just for labor. I bought the parts for a 6-50 install and when an electrician was wiring my crawlspace for a sump/dehumidifier I asked how much to install the 6-50 while he was already wiring in the same breaker panel. I paid $50 for the incremental labor cost. I doubt a electrician...

    2020.16.3 Software Update is out

    Something may have gone wrong during download. Sometimes the service center can push another version to you to clear it or it may actually need a service visit.

    Fargo ND Supercharger

    I think it would be a lot of work to try and keep Supercharge.info up to date with real time station availability. I think that's best left to Tesla to communicate. In the meantime Supecharge.info should show how many stalls are installed and where they are around the globe.
  21. JPWhite

    Fargo ND Supercharger

    @BlueShift Fargo ND location has 8 stalls not 4. Photos and Tesla official site confirm 8 stalls.

    Seeking Advice: Use of Model 3 as Trickle Charger for LEAF

    The LEAF 12v battery will not self discharge as long as the LEAF is *not* plugged in. Its a known defect of the LEAF BMS that it won't top off the 12v battery if the car is left plugged in. Simply unplug the LEAF and it will maintain the 12v battery just fine. The LEAF has almost non existent...

    2020.12.11.1 rolling out...

    Good WiFi plus patience. I got FSD hardware retrofit installed today. When I got home the vehicle downloaded both the map update and 2020.12.11.1 which totaled 10.3 GB

    Want to buy a Model 3, insurance is crazy expensive

    I found Nationwide to be very reasonable and treat you right if you do have a claim.

    2020.12.5.6: Traffic Light & Stop Sign Control

    If my car will slow down/stop even for a green light then I think I'll leave this feature for others to experiment with. Slowing down to a green light is a sure-fire way to get rear ended.

    Why does my Model 3 use significantly less energy in self-driving mode?

    I have found the opposite to be true. AP is a heavy braker compared to me.

    Taking a California driver's test in a Model 3?

    In addition engage autopilot while accelerating, and say "hey look, no hands!"

    New FSD details

    Search takes you to the places it finds. Maybe there are a lot of threads because there is a lot of interest. If this site does not want old threads to reappear it should close comments. Electrek do that as a rule.

    New FSD details

    And here we are in 2020 watching FSD Upgrade fiasco videos. Seems it will take 5 hours all things being equal. Unless you are TeslaJoy and it takes a week.

    Unfortunate fatality in Model 3

    Someone died. This is hardly a trivial report. In addition it illustrates why we must be vigilant when using AP.

    V3 Supercharger CCS2 only outside USA... End of Tesla's custom Type 2?

    So unlike the CHAdeMO adapter, you couldn't borrow someone else's adapter and be able to use it.

    V3 Supercharger CCS2 only outside USA... End of Tesla's custom Type 2?

    How would the car know if you have a CCS adapter with you or not? I don't doubt Tesla smarts but presence of an adapter is probably beyond its capabilities.

    Supercharger - Strathmore, AB

    Six is an unusual number of stalls for a V3 installation. The cabinets are capable of four stalls per cabinet. Is the restriction due to parking lot size? I see a number of 6 stall V3 installations that came live in Canada this week.

    As the country song says "God is great, beer is good, people are crazy". I don't see this changing in our lifetimes.

    Poor regen when reversing

    The new one pedal driving option in a recent firmware update has taken care of this issue. Now feathering the accelerator does exactly what I want going down the drive. Good job Tesla.

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    I don't mind Plugshare managing the location, what is disturbing is that they deleted the entry people created twice. So information about some stalls being closed while seal coating was occurring was hidden from Plugshare users until Plugshare decided to put the pin back on. Converting an...
  37. JPWhite

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    The seal-coating is finished and lines painted. Fully operational with steady traffic of Thanksgiving travelers. Plugshare have finally added the official pin for this supercharger. So much for crowd sourced service

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    @BlueShift Nashville location is 8 stalls not 12 as listed here. Pls correct number of stalls.

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    The noises you hear while supercharging are "normal" for the Model 3. I refer to them as "Bjorn Bonks" after the Youtuber Bjorn Nyland from Norway who documented the bonking sounds as he rapid charged his Model 3 at Ionity stations in Norway and Europe. I suspect the noises are due to...

    The "pull through" stall sitting out by itself is the eighth stall, but it is not lit up and isn't energized.
  41. JPWhite

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    I intended to, but when I only achieved 35kW it wasn't really worth taking that photo. I tried another stall. Same 35kW. I was at 75% SOC so I wouldn't get super fast speeds, but this is less than CHAdeMO. Maybe they will turn them up to full wick when they are comfortable they are working?
  42. JPWhite

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    For the skeptics, here are photos of me juicing up at this location. I was only able to get 35kW though I was at 75% at the time.

    Rear ended another vehicle, not blaming Tesla but wondering why AEB did not activate?

    This is how my first accident as a novice driver occurred many moons ago. Now I have my Tesla more often than not I engage AP and have the car make the turn maneuver into the next lane checking mirrors and look over my shoulder while the car is in control of forward acceleration a braking...

    New Nashville Area Supercharger - I24/Thompson Ln

    Zero activity at this site. Went by the EA site and there was just one vehicle charging. Guess what brand? Yep, Tesla (Model S) charging at the CHAdeMO station.

    2019.36.1 Reports Coming In....

    Same here with squeals from my brakes. Let's hope that now low speed braking is automated that Tesla can (or have) built in periodic brake caliper activation during braking to reduce the prevalence of customer complaints about squealing brakes. I've mentioned this all three times I've had my...

    2019.36.1 Reports Coming In....

    Correct. Blending is tough to get right. Nissan never got it right in the 2011 LEAF, grabby brakes at low speeds.

    Electrify America Chargers and CHAdeMO

    I just look on with envy when I see YouTube videos that show most stations in Norway sport three cables per station. CCS, CHAdeMO and AC. EVgo do support both CCS and CHAdeMO at some of their newer stations. Third parties wish to serve their customers. VW wish to promote CCS because it favors them.

    V10 update: 2019.32.12.1 [Release notes same as previous V10 versions]

    I've noticed that V10 AP no longer sticks to the center of the lane, it is more dynamic. If you pass a 18 wheeler it will shift over a tad, which is more human like, and for me reduces and AP anxiety. So yeah its no longer laser locked in the center of the lane, it is more discerning and adjusts...

    V10 update: 2019.32.12.1 [Release notes same as previous V10 versions]
