    New UI for pre-refreshed model S? Holiday update

    I have version 2021.24.28 on my pre-refresh AP1 model S... this has serious problems with the map (supposedly Google's fault and they need to fix it) and much weaker "engine breaking" -- wonder if we are going to be left in the cold-orphaned when it comes to SW updates.

    AP1 ONLY Please -- life after 2018.50.6

    I have late 2014 AP1 car delivered December 2014... one of the first AP1 cars currently on 2020.36.3.1 11-September-2020 all updates have been installed and work fine... this is actually one of the longest periods without a new update that I can remember. Perhaps they have stopped updating...

    How does Passenger Airbag Indicator work?

    I am concerned that I have a faulty system... recently replaced passenger air bag under recall notice. Never paid much attention before, but now the "Pass airbag off" comes on for 6-10 seconds when car is started. It then disappears regardless whether there is a passenger in the right hand seat...

    Does anyone with AP1 (or pre-AP1) have got any 2019 software updates?

    just got the newest version today on late 2014 P85 with AP1... release notes were blank, but seems to have installed properly. streaming music seems to work better... Always do hard reboot on both screens whenever I get an update... this is the first time it took almost 3 months to get a new...

    Software Update 2018.10.4

    yes, I have 218.6.1 and the main screen has blanked out rebooted after sleeping for a while. Happened multiple times. Hope they fixed it in an update, and that I can get that update.

    How often do you have to reboot the display?

    at least twice a month... usually because the audio system gets flakey. load errors and other things playing music.

    8.0 USB Media Player workaround

    yup... thanks... I just went into iTunes and edited the artists field and changed the song titles to put a numeric sequence in front of each... i will load this on a chip and give it a test in the morning... shouldn't have to do this, but hopefully this workaround will accomplish the task at...

    8.0 USB Media Player workaround

    many different artists, depending on which of the 46 tracks you pick... some are the same, but lots of different combinations of artists.

    8.0 USB Media Player workaround

    Actually, the one that drives me crazy is the Original Cast album for Hamilton... For some reason, the Tesla USB software determines there are multiple artists (different characters signing different songs) and then separates it into several "albums" That's one aspect of the frustration of...

    8.0 USB Media Player workaround

    Got your replies... albums that are multi-artist get separated into individual albums, hence loosing the integrity of the original album and sequence... songs within each of the separated albums are probably OK.

    8.0 USB Media Player workaround

    Yes, exactly the issue. Albums are broken and songs or folders alphabetically ordered.

    Comprehensive USB Bug List

    I need the folder view to keep file sequence and not alpha sort it... can't play music that needs a proper sequence Also volume leveling is needed. Really a pain to have to adjust for each song

    8.0 USB Media Player workaround

    Supercharger - San Mateo, CA (Park Place, 8 V2 stalls)

    I do have a ChadeMo adaptor, and will gladly pay for electricity if the alternative is a long wait for the locals to finish using the San Mateo Supercharger stalls... I've even seen limo service guys sitting there charging between rides. This alternative charging site in the garage may be just...

    Supercharger - Mountain View, CA (12 V2 stalls)

    Very sad state of affairs for the supercharges needed by distance travelers... Tesla needs to rectify this. I would personally be willing to pay a fee if it stopped the random local folks from saving a few pennies and keeping the folks on a trip from getting a charge.

    Supercharger - San Mateo, CA (Park Place, 8 V2 stalls)

    This is a great alternative when the supercharger is filled with local folks doing their shopping, and a traveler needs to charge to continue a trip... I need this location frequently going to SF from Monterey area. Thanks for sharing the info

    Main Screen keeps rebooting by itself?

    I have experienced this unprovoked rebooting as well... seems like a new update is going out in large numbers this past week... will wait to get my update and see if it fixes the problem. Have not seen anything on the boards here about that.

    Supercharger - San Mateo, CA (Park Place, 8 V2 stalls)

    This super charger is critical to me when making round trip to SF and return to Monterey Bay... for a while they had an employee watching and supervising the use of equipment. What happened to him? This is very upsetting for one who uses this for long distance travel.

    Tesla Owners "ICEing" Public Chargers?

    Yes, I always leave my cell number and fact that I'm charging on the dash of my car. I have had the unpleasant event of being unplugged and someone else using it. Happens with J1772 and with ChaDemo cables.

    Tesla Owners "ICEing" Public Chargers?

    I have preprinted cards that I leave on cars that are blocking charging sites. It is very polite, but ICEing or Electric Cars that are not charging get the same cards. It's abusive to use a slot and not be charging a vehicle.

    No limit on actual freeways or limited access highways... secondary roads or special situations are limited to 5mph over the posted limit. If you must, you can push on the accelerator to override. But, this is a safety issue.

    Had an issue with the 2.17.37 update (not sure it's related, but just happened day after) driving at night, and the auto high beam dimming was malfunctioning. wouldn't turn on for the longest time... tried on/off with the light stalk, flash the high beams. then magically, started to work again...

    Model 3 is beautiful!

    Curious about the instrument panel.... the center LCD display is horizontal instead of vertical... but I don't see any instrument cluster screen in front of the driver. HUD display? I would think Elon would have made a big deal about that if true.
