    HOV use - Fast Trak in California

    FYI, just received my stickers. Process time ~10 weeks.

    USB-C to Micro-B

    Good work. I don't have the diagnostic tools, so was going on supposition and the experience I had with my iPads. I would totally believe that their not backwards compatible.

    USB C Port orientation in 2021 MY

    Unfortunately, the cable and adapter combination doesn't seem to work. The USB drive doesn't come online. I may have to go to a hub solution or similar. I have a right angle and converter combination that works, it just sticks out about 3/4" or so. I'll have to keep investigating. If only...

    USB C Port orientation in 2021 MY

    It does and yet it's still an issue. I want to minimize how far anything sticks out on the ports because with the top open things will easily slide down that wall and hit what is sticking out (or fall into the hole and hit things). I want to minimize the risk of damaging the ports. I'm...

    USB C Port orientation in 2021 MY

    I scanned the spec and didn't see anything about the port orientation. It's long though, so I may have missed it.

    California LR AWD Waiting Room

    Mine was a blank and white, so I don't know that it's a limiting item. Since you're local to Fremont don't be surprised if they want to do a quick delivery in the next 2 weeks.

    California LR AWD Waiting Room

    I'm in the Bay Area, so you probably know as the end of quarter approaches they tend to get to us so to make the numbers. Having said that, my estimated delivery was the last 10 days of the month and then on 3/10 they said they were ready to deliver in the next couple days. So your 1-2 weeks...

    Rear USB C Ports not working

    I replied on another thread this morning that I suspect that the amperage of the rear ports is insufficient to charge some devices. iPads require a 5a adapter for example and won't charge off the small adapter that used to come with iPhones. It sounds like the amps at the rear ports is...

    USB C Port orientation in 2021 MY

    Does anyone else think the orientation of the USB-C ports in the new MY would be much better if rotated 90 degrees. With the new console they are oriented horizontally, so any right angle converter you get is going either into the compartment wall or across the other port. Trying to find an...

    USB-C to Micro-B

    I'm going to guess that it's the amperage. I know that apple tablets require a 5amp adapter to charge and will not charge with the smaller 1.2a adapters that come with phones. I'm going to guess that your headphones require the higher amperage and the rear ports don't provide it.

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    Given you're in Ohio, that makes sense. I don't have a birth date for my car, but it's probably within a couple days.

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    I recieved my MY LR on Saturday (3/15) and it did not have the new headlights. New console, heated steering wheel... still the old headlights though. It was built this month.

    Any Model Y with new projector headlights in the USA?

    I just accepted delivery of my MY LR and it does NOT have the projector headlight. VIN 1441xx

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    I actually had to postpone my delivery because it was so fast. Although it was a different part of Tesla that caused that (service issue created by the latest software download that they can't figure out; hence I can't sell my current S while the error condition exists).

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    Beware delivery is really fast right now. They wanted me to pick up my car 6 days after the deposit....

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    So, are the cars that are being delivered so quickly coming with the heated steering wheel and auto dimming mirrors? Being in ca I don’t care about the steering wheel, but the mirrors are relevant. Is the console updated or still the old one? I’ve asked the delivery people, but I’m not...

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    Put my order in last Saturday and they want to schedule my factory delivery on 1/22. Unfortunately, there's a software issue with the Model S I'm selling via Carvana that this will replace, so I'm probably going to have to push out delivery unless service figures out how to solve this.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    ... and realizing you're probably looking for an S timing, just ignore this. I'd delete my post if it were possible. I managed to enter the wrong forum.

    If there is a model s refresh

    You’re correct. Sorry, I got into the wrong forum. I’m letting go of my 7 1/2 year old S and getting a Y. Sorry for the confusion

    I'm right there with you. I was interested until I saw the price. It can't be that much better than the other apps.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    Well, my US delivery is under 1 week from deposit. I placed my deposit last Saturday afternoon and got the request to pay when I woke up this morning. By noon I had the email saying they wanted me to pick it up at the Fremont Factory on Friday (1/22). I am insisting that the auto-dimming...

    If there is a model s refresh

    give me a few days. I put a deposit down on Saturday and received an email today saying they wanted to arrange delivery on this coming Saturday. As in one week from deposit to delivery. I've told them that I won't take delivery if it doesn't have the auto-dimming mirrors though. I can't...

    Tesla Moble Charging Cables

    Thanks Rocky_H for the thorough explanation. I haven't been a regular here, so I didn't keep up with things. I have just a 30A circuit not a 50A, so the difference probably won't be too notable between the two cables for me. Thanks again.

    Tesla Moble Charging Cables

    I'm guessing there's a reason they created a Gen 2, so I'm wondering if anyone knows why and if there's a charging "penalty" or issue with the Gen 1 that could cause it not to work with the Y. If I have 2 sets of cables then I can keep one in the car permanently and one in the garage where I...

    Tesla Moble Charging Cables

    I noticed they've changed the design of the charging cables since I bought my S some 7 1/2 years ago. It's a completely new set of cables and I'm wondering what the differences are and why. Will I be able to use my original charging cables (Gen 1) with my Y or will I need to buy a new adapter...

    What are the various software based "upgrades" for Model Y

    Unless you have really bad luck and Tesla does a price increase. From what I have seen they usually know when the FSD price is going to increase (I think that's happened 2 times now). By buying it with the car or deposit you lock the price in.

    What are the various software based "upgrades" for Model Y

    FWIW, I've been advised that I should order the FSD and boost after receiving the car. That way I can get points for my credit card. Which I'll promptly use on Amazon to get a bunch of accessories (sentry drive, roof shade, etc).

    What are the various software based "upgrades" for Model Y

    Yea, I'm just not reading the website right. Anything else?? Or just those items? They don't really tell you about any options on the ordering page.

    What are the various software based "upgrades" for Model Y

    Interesting. They call it Auto Pilot in the configuration. Maybe they use different terms in different places. I still got the term wrong. :-) I wonder why the Homelink module isn't something you can put on the order. It's annoying if I have to make a special service appt for it. Maybe...

    What are the various software based "upgrades" for Model Y

    What are the various Tesla software based upgrades and what do they cost? Maybe I'm missing a list somewhere. Autodrive ==> $10,000 Acceleration Boost ==> $2000 HomeLink ==> ?? (About to order my Y and wondering what to anticipate)
  31. J

    Vendor in Bay Area, CA ?!?

    Any idea on costs?? One has to do the email to get a quote and I'm looking for rough costs for Y tinting and PPF

    For the 0.28.01 zip there is no bat file. Just the lib, jar and png files. Is the bat file perhaps in an earlier zip I need to grab? I am executing the jar directly. - - - Updated - - - OK, I see the potential issue. The windows download link takes you to a level that's got zip bundles...

    VisibleTesla

    It looks like I may have come across an issue with the latest Java being installed on my system and therefore VisibleTesla won't start. I had been using it fine until about a month ago. I saw a reference in the FAQ about there being an incompatibility, but it really doesn't help me to get...

    Service wait time on park assist problem

    I had to wait for almost 2 months for my yearly maintenance. Oh and then someone screwed up the appointment and I got put off another 2 weeks. Thankfully I called to check a few days before. There was apparently nothing they could do to make my original appointment right. BTW, this is at Fremont.

    Remote app suddenly having problems connecting

    Interestingly enough, when I arrived at my car after work yesterday there was a note that a software update was available. This morning I have 5.12. An initial try shows that that a navigation issue with drawing the route backwards (different thread) is fixed. We'll have to see over the next...

    Remote app suddenly having problems connecting

    I seem to have this problem every few weeks now. I reboot the main console (using the rollers) to get it to restart. I have reported the issue to Tesla a couple of times and they just tell me to reboot. I'm running v5.9(1.51.109). All remote application access fails when in this state. BTW...

    Weird issue: route not showing in screen

    This happens to me on a regular basis. The fun part is that now when it does show, it's the reverse route!! The turn by turn is correct, but the routing line on the main map is always backwards (it's very confusing to see it tell you to take the offramp of the freeway to get on it.... I have...

    Trip Planning with No Superchargers on the southern US route

    I do have plug share. I just didn't consider it. I know the rough route, I just didn't consider it. Yea, I'm thinking that this may be a "next year" trip. I just know how I drive and trying to go 50 just won't work very well for me. Not to mention I've been on I-40 before and I don't think...

    Trip Planning with No Superchargers on the southern US route

    Hmmm... I'm thinking that something happened, because you're right. I did flag stops in Gallup and I must have missed the translation. I'm saving it off to a spreadsheet so I can figure out the days. Where could I find info on places like the RV Park? Thanks for the info, BTW. This is a...

    Trip Planning with No Superchargers on the southern US route

    My wife asked about driving to a family reunion of hers in Texas. Based on the EVPlanner it looks like we can do the trip fairly easily up through Flagstaff. After that I think I'm stuck on the freeway some 250 miles down the road.... We would be headed towards Wichita Falls, which is in...

    Do not waste your time/range looking for blink network chargers

    Blink isn't something I'd rely on. At my work they replaced all the Blink chargers (there were a couple dozen through out the main campus) with Chargepoint and have been continuing to expand. The Chargepoint also appear more robust. There were often issues with Blink chargers and I haven't...

    Interesting night at the Supercharger

    The problem with limiting the amount of charge is that those who are taking road trips may be planning their trip based on a full charge. I think it would be very bad to place that kind of limit. Having said that, it would be good to ensure that tracking of those who stay beyond their...

    Model S Annual Service Checklist

    Please call Tesla and not AAA. I had an issue and called Tesla. They do not use AAA. I spent some time talking with the driver and although some AAA people might be careful and have an idea of how to deal with the Tesla, most do not. There are only a few carriers that Tesla authorizes. The...

    Parking sensors

    I agree this sounds like a problem to me. If you're backing up and the wheels are at an angle you could get close to something (post, wall or other car).

    I had a perfect delivery experience

    I have worked in tech support for over 20 years and there is a saying and statistic about this. It goes roughly: For every unhappy customer it takes ten happy customers to recover. I think we're seeing that here. I know my delivery was perfect and extremely quick. I had to do a bit of...
