    To MCU2 or not to MCU2?

    Would you mind saying or linking to how you got the YouTube premium to work? I haven't figured it out yet.

    2019.12.1 Update

    Same. I think they need to roll this one back. It felt dangerous. Specifics were jittery behavior especially at intersections and where other variables like cyclists were present ( Anyone from tesla reading, I have driven everyday on Foothill expressway from Palo Alto to mountain view for years...

    No cellular service?

    Same issue here in bay area from mountain view to Palo Alto from 7 to 830pm Reboot didn't help.

    Looking for some wisdom for choosing 75D vs 100D

    Are you not able to upgrade your 70D to 75D and uncork it? Doing that made all the difference for me and I'm really happy I bought the 70 over the 90.

    Firmware Update 2018.12

    Got the version update Friday...have been on and off wifi since with a weak signal. Weird thing was that when I first left home tonight, I didn't have the maps. After two hours at my daughters softball game with no wifi, when I went to leave the message popped up.

    Firmware Update 2018.12

    Yes, but traffic detail is better.

    New Navigation Coming This Weekend! (circa March 31, 2018)

    Posted my thoughts on the update thread so won't cross post the details, but I got the new maps tonight and really like it so far.

    Firmware Update 2018.12

    Got the new maps tonight. Only drove 10 miles, but really like it so far: 1. Better turn by turn voice instructions. 2. More detailed on eye level display with multi turn visibility. 3. Faster pinch and zoom. 4. Much better traffic detail on the big screen.

    Firmware Update 2018.12

    Got the update to 2018.12 last night. No map changes that I can tell. AP1 seems to be smoother on takeoffs and stops in traffic. Voice recognition seemed to have deteriorated. Screen seemed maybe a bit snappier, but not noticeably. AP1 did at one point refuse to go over 58 on the freeway when...

    My key opened someone else's tesla

    She was still in the building and I had to call her. The bottle of wine in the trunk made me think it could be mine. She is a mellow soul, but was slightly concerned.

    My key opened someone else's tesla

    All, thank you for the input. I don't recall if the mirrors were shut. I don't believe they presented so the theory it was somehow unlocked remains though I'm not certain whether that's possible with the door handles retracted which I believe they were. She rarely drives it but I will try to...

    I know the owner and asked. She said no.

    My key opened someone else's tesla

    Walked out to my car this evening. Was in a different spot than I thought, but I opened the trunk via the button on the car. Looked inside and it didn't look like my stuff. Shrugged figuring my wife had driven it and put my bag in. Closed the trunk, went to get in and (before opening the door)...

    Non-owner First Production window just got pushed back

    To Give you guys a little hope: I'm an S owner that reserved maybe a year ago. I'm confident I was quite late in the owner queue. I got my invitation to configure today. On the downside, I live in the bay area in case that's still a factor.

    NEMA 10-30 to 14-50 adapter and extension cord

    I have been using this exact setup for 1.5 years. No issues. I always worry a bit after a software upgrade that tesla will accidentally wipe the amp setting at 24 but no issues thus far.

    Chill mode, you have ruined my car

    She screamed at me once shortly after uncorking, "you don't care about my feelings. It makes me sick when you hit it like that." I recently got a chill mode included update. Now it's mandatory. I used to be Tom cruise in days of thunder and now I'm driving miss daisy. Chill mode, you have ruined...

    Uncorking official for most 75Ds!

    WARP system. At first the service center didn't know what I was talking about on the new bulletin but armed with the data from this forum, we got it done. VIN 145XXX, June 2016 build.

    70D upgraded to 75D a few months back. Uncorked today. So much fun.

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    The guy seemed super happy to be spreading the good news when I started with an apology for the call. When the local service center doesn't know what uncorking is and multiple departments of the company give conflicting information, this is what happens. I was very salty at Tesla, but am...

    Uncorking official for most 75Ds!

    I'm going in on Monday for a confirmed 145 Facelift 75D. Hopefully the CA service center knows what they are doing... Confirmed in VA at (703) 749-1203

    Also for anyone else whose service center has no clue ask them to look in the WARP service system.

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    145 VIN. 75D face lift. Eligible! Palo Alto had no idea but my man in McLean is going to make a lot of people happy today.

    Uncorking official for most 75Ds!

    75D face lift. 145 VIN. Letter received a few days ago that it was not available to me "at this time" due to hardware. Keeping my fingers firmly crossed and would most definitely appreciate anyone getting the update notification to post details. Hoping I'm not moping around saying "say it...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    Here's what I got...utter nonsense. Hardware red herring and discusses produced which would mean the delivery cut off is nonsensical though possibly true for my car. The "at this time" provides a smidgen of hope : Thank you for reaching out to Tesla Customer Support, I apologize for the delay...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    I don't know what their marginal profit is on a new S, but let's say it's 20K. At 2K for the upgrade, 10 is their breakeven. Then you add to that the fact that every one of those 10 got some additional value beyond what they paid. Then you add to that the tens of thousands that see Tesla...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    One car simply let everyone know it could be done. The inventory behavior would have tipped people off to that information even without that car. Their company policy seems to be a belief that this is technology, not a car, and therefore software limitations should be tolerated. PR axiom #1 is...

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    Krash, you know your stuff. What is the basis for the liability concern, and why can't this easily be overcome with a charge to upgrade? It's clear that they believe that the value of offering the faster inventory outweighs the liability concern which tells me it cannot be that substantial.
  32. Tazman

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    Sent in my complaint. They need to know this destroys value for them. They are looking at the trees of a few sales instead of the forest of long term customer loyalty (or at least some immediate and free margin from a charge to upgrade).
  33. Tazman

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    I'd pay 1k. I think tesla is shortsighted here. They can pick up some free margin and are not going to compromise long term sales materially. The goodwill/marketing of uncorking all would be immense, but the longer they stall, the less benefit they get. I have Wilson Phillips in my head, "Elon...

    Hurricane Irma, no power, how can we keep the Tesla on to assist?

    Put a generator in the trunk

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    It just occurred to me, that even if they are going to uncork older cars, they will do it after quarter end. Nothing indicates that they will but hope springs eternal.
  36. Tazman

    75 and 75D variants increased performance from July 1st - software and hardware improvements?

    60D and 75D have the same power. It's just range that is limited.

    New 0-60 Times caused by new drive unit it seems...

    Either they a. are full of bull and the old drive unit is capable of the faster times, b. the person you talked to is uninformed, or c. the new drive units were installed earlier than admitted. I'm not going with a or b with an a lean. Tesla, please give me my speed!

    Round Trip From Fresno SuperCharger to Sequoia National Park

    My family has gone to Hume Lake every other year for 20 years. Absolutely beautiful though the camp itself is a kids camp so you have to be up for that. People are exceptionally helpful so I suspect you could find someone to let you plug in for a fee hours if desperate but no idea if you could...

    Autopilot team size? How is it organized? Any guesses?

    Used to be 8 for AP1. Not sure how many now.
  40. Tazman

    17.24.28 released

    Another AP1 observation on the update. They have actually made autopilot more dangerous. For anyone in the Bay Area, I drive home on foothill expressway. With the 5mph rule, the car now regularly loses the follow car and proceeds to get jittery with only the lane lines to guide. So, Tesla...

    17.24.28

    AP1 75D and just got the update. It's completely screwed up my nav. Auto resizing doesn't work properly anymore so big screen is always too far zoomed out on the map to be helpful. Only way to fix is to Constantly zoom and scroll. Anyone else having this issue or know a fix?

    70 to 75 Who upgraded?

    One other thought. For tesla, this is also a way to potentially reduce supercharger demand (if slower peak charging time on new 75s, is outweighed by fewer people needing to Supercharge). More money, happier customers, more supercharger availability=win, win, win... Only losers are people like...

    Help with charging solution

    I have the setup you describe. 240v outlet, 3 prong to 4 prong adapter, 50 foot extension cord, weatherproof rv outlet outside of the house. Car is manually dialed back to 20 amps. Works like a charm though I still try to watch it each time it starts charging to make sure it hasn't lost the...

    Speech recognition worse with 8.0

    Totally agree. It's way worse... Doesn't pick up destinations, doesn't call people I tell it to, takes multiple tries, doesn't call up the right songs, and it's slower. Apart from the better regen and autopilot, 8.0 absolutely sucks.
  47. Tazman

    Firmware 8.0

    Yes. This and it nearly always skips the last 45 seconds or so of a song. Between this and the horrible ability to find channels on slacker and slow voice recognition, the new media player is vastly inferior (aka sucks) . TESLA, PLEASE REVERT TO THE OLD MEDIA PLAYER!
  48. Tazman

    8.0 Music Player Unusable

    Glad I'm not alone. Tesla, please fix this!

    8.0 Music Player Unusable

    Mine seems to skip to the next song every time I get about 45 seconds from the end of a song on slacker... Anyone else having this issue on 8.0? Autopilot better, music player worse, icon hiding lame.
