    Yes, it is V11, with the new UI. I got it on my MS 2016.

    How to get your safety score higher

    Sure, here's the link: https://www.tesla.com/support/safety-score The only thing total mileage counts for is forward collision warnings, but you shouldn't get any of those. I made a spreadsheet with that huge formula on it and was able to get the same score calculation Tesla did.

    Does FSD Beta still require you to hit the stalk or accelerator at every intersection?

    Sometimes when turning onto a high-speed road at a stop sign, the FSD Beta will ask for confirmation. At least it did that at 10.8. I don't remember seeing it at 10.10.2, but then I just disable FSD when making that kind of turn because even if it worked, it would be painfully slow.

    How to get your safety score higher

    Here's the deal. Essentially the safety score boils down to ratios, bad driving divided by total driving. People read the description of the calculation on the Tesla web site and notice that nothing counts against you when Autopilot is engaged (except autopilot disengagement), so they turn on...

    What does FSD Beta Onboarding look like?

    For me, the onboarding was totally anticlimactic. I had just gotten my safety score up to 97 a couple of days before, and I got the usual software update notification on Christmas morning (2021). It was the "Version 11" UI update that everybody got, but there were release notes for the Beta in...

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    I fully agree objectively with what you say. FSD Beta does all that stuff; however, I don't find it particularly stressful, but one does have to be very vigilant. And of course, most of my driving is on rural highways where the car works slightly better on tight curves than Autopilot does.

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    Consolation for those still waiting to get into the FSD Beta program I've been there, trying in vain to get my safety score up (before I turned off Autopilot) and feeling envy each time a new tranche of beta testers was added. I finally got it Christmas morning, hardly trusting my eyes that I...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    I've had Autopark with the FSD Betas starting when I got it at 10.8 It even does camera only parallel parking when there's only one car. One problem I had previously with Autopark is that it requires additional camera calibration. I had deleted my calibration data and the car recalibrated...

    FSD vs FSD beta

    I got FSD Beta 10.8 on Christmas morning 2021 with a safety score of 97. As far as I know, no additional beta testers have been added since 10.8 of any score. My advice for a good score is drive responsibly and TURN OFF AUTOPILOT; after I did every drive I did was 100, and brought up my average...

    Sorry, I actually like the new UI :)

    I like the new Homelink buttons. The old ones were tiny and hard to reach. I kept hitting the wrong one -- not any more. And I didn't like the old tire pressure and trips display. I always ended up swiping multiple times to make it work, and then got the wrong one. And with trips you always had...

    Poll : Which is better - FSD Beta 10.10 vs 10.9/10.8

    I got 10.10.2 about the same time as the new maps, and the result is awful. The car keeps moving into turn-only lanes (right and left) when it's not making a turn. And on a two-lane road with a solid double centerline, when traffic stops for a road hazard, the car tries to move into the...

    FSD Beta Experience - Be Careful What You Wish For

    "Hyper focused" is a good description of driving with the FSD Beta. But I have to push back a little because there is no FSD Beta on the highway; the car is still driving the same Enhanced Autopilot / Public FSD software whether you have the beta or not, and really, if you're not on a stretch of...

    Poll : Which is better - FSD Beta 10.10 vs 10.9/10.8

    I think 10.10.2 is on par with 10.8.1, but for different reasons. The new one does a much better (not 100%) job of not crossing the center line on curvy roads, but phantom braking is a little worse, sometimes acting like a bucking horse. They both miss residential turns at 25 mph and run a stop...

    Phantom Braking

    I don't recall any phantom braking on my 2018 Model 3 for the first year. Then it came and went depending on the firmware release. But with the FSD Beta it's worse than it's ever been.

    COVID Infects Tesla 12V batteries

    The point there is if you don't drive the car, you might not plug in the car. And if you don't plug in the car, the electronics run off the 12 V battery rather than the AC. When the car is plugged in, the 12V battery doesn't get used and it doesn't need any charging cycles. At least that's what...

    COVID Infects Tesla 12V batteries

    The first 12V battery in my Model S lasted nearly 4 years, but its warranty replacement barely lasted 2. What's up with that? I asked the Tesla Mobile Service technician why the battery only lasted 2 years. He said it he had seen a lot of 12V battery failures and suggested it was because of...

    Phantom Braking

    I live in a semi-rural area where all the connecting roads are 2-lane highways too. I get what you're saying. My perspective is a little longer, since I drove the former Autopilot Convenience Feature on a HW1 Model S, Enhanced Autopilot with the NVIDIA HW 2.5 computer on a 2018 Model 3, EAP on...

    Confusion about FSD and AP

    Just to clarify, the generally released FSD is beta too. Heck, Autosteer that came out in 2014 is still beta. Just some versions are more beta than others, and some are more widely released than others.

    FSD Beta 10.10 Release Notes

    I got new maps with 10.8.1. A new roundabout near me wasn't on the old map, but FSD 10.8.1 handled it perfectly. With the new maps, the roundabout is there, and the car does began stopping multiple times when it shouldn't.

    For those with V11 - What Version is the map data?

    I have the same 2020-48-12628 on my V11 Model 3 (with the FSD Beta 10.8.1) and my older Model S at V10.2. My guess is that the map revision is labeled wrong, and should be 2021-48-12628 because there are things on my map that didn't exist in 2020.

    Wiki FSD Beta v11.x: Anticipation & Discussion

    That would only work if you could drive without ever turning AP off. At least for me something is going to happen where I have to intervene and that ruins the score because with AP on, you never accumulate any good driving to compensate for the exceptions.

    Wiki FSD Beta v11.x: Anticipation & Discussion

    Following too close only applies to speeds 50 mph and over. The score is based on a ratio of the time driving under 1 second to the time driving 1-3 seconds behind the other car. To get a good score you have to have a small number on the top and a big number on the bottom. What screws you is...

    Turn off the radio?

    My radio wouldn't work after the last software update. I had to do the two-button reboot before it would work. People have said for years to always reboot after a software update and I never did, but lately I have needed to do it for one thing or another.

    10.8 FSD

    I never got any email correspondence regarding FSD. I just pushed the Request button when it became available a couple of months ago, did my Safety Score thing, and then the Beta was offered as an update like all other firmware releases on Dec. 25. I have Tesla whitelisted in my email, and I...

    I recalibrated the cameras a couple of weeks before I got the Beta. I don't want to leave the impression that FSD doesn't work. It was very reliable on a long trip I took.

    I must say that after watching Dirty Tesla videos, I expected a lot better from 10.8. What was most disappointing is that FSD is mostly useless in the small rural area where I drive. In my neighborhood, the car tries to crash through gates, runs a stop sign, repeatedly stops for non-existent...

    Calculating Safety Score - TACC

    I've also been getting high percentages for following too closely. The score is the ratio of time under 1 second to time under 3 seconds. TACC doesn't add to anything, and driving MORE than 3 seconds behind doesn't either. So you're measured only over a narrow range. If you use TACC all the time...

    Phantom braking survey

    The situation varies between firmware releases for me (M3 w/radar). For some releases phantom braking is horrible, but for other releases (like 2021.36.5.1) it never happens, replaced instead by phantom forward collision alerts. It switches one way or the other when the firmware changes.
