    Tune-in Radio Lost Internet Radio Stations & Radio.Net instead.

    Tesla’s lost radio Stations I'm again posting to remind Tesla management that last year we discovered that ‘Tune-in’ the US audio streaming service, deleted the bulk of its ‘free’ streaming service. This was to introduce ‘Tune-in Pro,’ a subscription service on a monthly/ yearly charge. No...

    Many thanks for your comprehensive explanation. Most appreciated! ;)

    Crawley Update

    Sorry your reply has confused me! I thought I'd asked a simple yes/ no question. Not realising the response was so conditional. Please illucidate for a non-techie like me, who's struggling to understand your acronysms & their meaning?

    Elon Musk Becomes Richest Person in the World

    I say congratulations to Elon! He is living proof that we need an example to show the communists that capitalism still works.

    Tune-in Radio Lost Internet Radio Stations & Radio.Net instead.

    I've spent much time blaming my new /replacement Daughter Board on the loss of my favourite internet radio stations. I discovered that the original ‘Tune-in’ US audio streaming service, this autumn deleted the bulk of its free streaming services Thereby favourites being grey-out. This was to...

    Daughter Board: - HomeLink & Tune-in issues

    Thanks for the link & info. It's concerning to read some of the comments on this 'UTT' Wiki site, that all Teslas MCUs have built-in obsolence, due to the poor quality of the eMMC (Hynix) that Tesla have chosen to use. It seems I've been lucky so far, that the entire MCU has yet to fail! I guess...

    Daughter Board: - HomeLink & Tune-in issues

    I've just read your 'Poppy-cock' comment & wondered with natural scepticism, how you know so much about the way/ method of OTA updates & how they are handled within the Daughter Board. I'm keen to know your background & qualifications to advise this info? Lastly, to enquire if you're directly...

    Daughter Board: - HomeLink & Tune-in issues

    It's been almost 4 glorious years of ownership that I've been relatively free from serious problems. Although I must admit year-on-year, as the various updated screen layouts have been installed the screen functionality has gradually deteriorated! As in making a phone call & finding keypad to...

    Why is the auto parking so bad? 8 Years later.

    What a negative response! Making excuses for a manufacturer is so unproductive. It's all very well Tesla spending so much time on providing silly time-wasting games. If only they could divert such energy if not financial investment into getting the long term issues like this to be resolved. If...

    The indignity of - Switching Off MY Fan!

    Yes I'm constantly finding that my fan setting has been overidden, hence my indinant feelings! I wish my fan always returned as consistantly as you state yours does. Recently, I've tried setting my 'Climate Control' to 'Auto,' but to no avail! I would welcome any suggestion of a setting that...

    The indignity of - Switching Off MY Fan!

    When my Model S was delivered I could set-up the interior controls, just as I wanted them to be & for them to remain on the same settings after I parked it in my garage & would still be the same the following morning, or whenever I next used the car. This was until some 'Smart Alec' (my polite...

    Screen Display Faults

    Thanks for your sad, yet I suppose realistic take on what should be our expectations : -( However if this neglect continues of their commitments to honour the promised software updates, such poor practice will come back & bite Tesla hard on the current juicy sales rump! This will be especially...

    Screen Display Faults

    Thank you for your work around/ suggestions. I've no idea how to map anything, but that's beside the point. We've bought a relatively expensive car that's supposedly future proof. That's as far the sort of points I've raised. In that case why should we need to work around anything? Tesla has...

    Screen Display Faults

    The original screen layout was far better than the latest version. Irrespective of the functionality that has been added since I purchased ths car in Q1 of 2016, the greatest problems are the desgn/ layout. 1. The abilty to find the phone's screen function in order to make a phone call is...

    Crawley Update

    Superchargers much needed at/ near the Gatwick turn-off. (Junction 9) Also same/urgent need at 'Clacket Lane' services (between Junction 5 & 6) on the M25 to bridge the enormous gap there, travelling either north to south, or east to west!

    The Screen the Strongest link in a 'S' turns out to be the Weakest!

    @SSonnentag I've also attempted to use the scroll wheel function, but here in the UK the cellular phone service Tesla uses is not reliable. Sadly, I think they use 'EE' instead of 'O2' which works better here in the hilly North Downs area where I live. So making calls is not an easy function. As...

    Homelink Garage Door 'Flakey' at best!

    Hi Rick Thanks for your reply. Yes I agree it's most likely a positioning issue. Only 20% of the time the car shows the closing dialog box, which indicates the car will 'Auto Close' on leaving the house. The rest of the time this dialogue box fails to appear on the car's screen. I then simple...

    The Screen the Strongest link in a 'S' turns out to be the Weakest!

    When I bought my Model S in 2016, the interior screen layout was near perfect! I was delighted to see such friendly functionality when I test drove this amazing saloon! (As we call them here in the UK) I could easily access my mobile/ cellphone functions to make a cellular call. Then on...

    Homelink Garage Door 'Flakey' at best!

    My Homelink garage door system was installed by a qualified professional electrician. This was to actuate my German made 'Hörmann' garage door, using the recommended 'Chamberlain' adaptor kit. During the 4+ years I've used this system, when leaving my garage (at best) the door only closes...

    Passive Entry - Why change the ‘default’ settings?

    I'm delighted to read it takes only two seconds, maybe there's a shortcut of which I'm unaware? All suggestions welcome.

    Passive Entry - Why change the ‘default’ settings?

    Then Tesla need to improve their key fob coding, to ensure the security such devices promise.

    Passive Entry - Why change the ‘default’ settings?

    We Tesla owners enjoy the most advanced car in the world, why on earth would anyone other than the most insecure drivers, want to cease the fabulous ease of ‘Passive Entry’ to our Teslas, by locking up our cars in such an unfriendly & complicated manner? OK, so there are some owners who may...

    Why Tesla Will Fail

    Here in the UK I've so far had great service from their Gatwick Service Centre with well trained staff who listen & are courteous. Where there's a problem is on their poorly tested, or ill thought-out software updates. In particular auto-folding wing mirrors which re-open at 30mph, which in...

    Wing/Side Mirror Disaster!

    Thank you to all who replied. I can only repeat my plea to Tesla to please re-assess this restriction. It's illogical - in no way does it improves safety. It's a restriction which serves NO PURPOSE!

    Wing/Side Mirror Disaster!

    Having previously complained about this issue, I now need to report my worst feared nightmare. This cost was discovered during my annual service, where I incurred a most unwelcome repair quote! Why? Because of Tesla's revised policy on opening manually folded /closed wing/side mirrors, then the...

    Tesla new Santa Mode Video (easter egg)...

    After this so-called 'Update' I was unable to get the door handles to present themselves! I was not amused at being locked out of my car! In the end I had the presence of mind to use my Android App to gain entry.

    Wing/ Side Mirror Solution.

    I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to the 'Techies' within Tesla for last update re-enabling me to fold-in my wing/side mirrors. It's appreciated here in the UK where our roads are so much smaller & narrower that in the US. Cheers Guys - GOOD JOB!

    Shhhhhh....Where should I install my radar detector?

    As a UK resident we don't have to 'Shushh,' as (unlike France & maybe parts of the US) the ownership & use of speed detectors is quite legal. I'm unable to advise on all the systems that may be used in the States, but in July I bought an 'Aguri Skyway Pro.'...

    Question: Will Tesla replace damaged wing mirrors free of charge?

    Thanks for your replies. I'm unaware of the laws in the US, but here in the UK when driving in the many narrow streets where parked cars make passing a hazard, or when passing cars in narrow country lanes an equally difficult manoeuvre, we're lawfully able to fold-in our wing mirrors. I'm...

    Question: Will Tesla replace damaged wing mirrors free of charge?

    Now that the safety geeks at Tesla have disabled our wing mirrors from folding, (accept below 10MPH) can anyone tell me if, in the event of them being damaged by oncoming traffic being driven in narrow country lanes here in UK/ Europe, will Tesla replace these expensive damaged mirrors (see my...

    Wing Mirror Warning!

    I recently took my S85 to my local bodyshop for some 'TLC' to tidy up of some parking scratches to my front bumper corners. Sadly after spraying, as the fitter drove my car out of the oven, he managed to catch the nearside wing mirror on the portal, which broke off a small piece of the chrome...

    Is EVAnnex CCI best center console?

    Hi, I've just taken delivery of a brand new Evannex CCI, it a high quality unit in obeche & tan which matches my interior perfectly. Apart from getting my cellphone charger cables through the somewhat tight aperture (they provide a tool to help) I installed it with ease. However a word of...

    Homelink/ Hormann Garage Door 'Flaky' Operations!

    Hi Guys it's now 6 months since I took delivery of my Hormann Garage door & since then with very little help from either Tesla, Hormann but finally some from Chamberlain/Homelink, I've been trying with the help of my most qualified electrician/ engineer to get my S85 to talk to my Hormann...

    Homelink/ Hormann Garage Door 'Flaky' Operations!

    Thanks everyone so far for your feedback. I still maintain that the open & close signal transmitted from the car is too weak! I can only hope someone in Fremont will read this thread & then amplify the signal sent from the car in the next software release.

    Homelink/ Hormann Garage Door 'Flaky' Operations!

    Thanks Steve for your above post, however I should point out that apart for the Hormann door mechanism where they've supplied a single quartz halogen bulb, the rest of my garage lighting in is fluorescent. I therefore suspect the main issue here is the open & close signal transmitted from the...

    Homelink/ Hormann Garage Door 'Flaky' Operations!

    My S85 seems to have difficulties regularly communicating my new Hormann Garage Door. The supplier of the door initially installed (a now) obsolete code converter, the signal from which my S85 regularly failed to connect, this I understand was due to Hormann uprating their security from 12 to 24...
