    Tesla Brand USB Stick Question

    To reformat it, it's two taps on the touch screen and would have taken you a lot less time that to write the post. Lol

    Did you check eBay? I got mine from there

    Why is the Model S so expensive compared to Model 3...

    Plus.... A huge factor will be the Aluminium body (vs steel on the Model 3) so it's lightweight and power to weight ratio increases.

    It's been available in the UK for a few months now. You can book to have it done in the service section of your app.

    MCU2 rebooting often

    I've had the mcu2 upgrade but not experienced any reboots. You should report it to the service centre to be investigated.

    Where is my new DAB radio?

    In the audio settings, there's a screen with tick boxes to allow to select which audio sources to show. Does DAB appear on there? Tick it if it is. If not, or it's already ticked, then contact the service centre.

    On my model S, they did AP3 at the same time as mcu2 without me asking for it .

    Finally unlocked the Back to the Future Easter egg :)

    That's so cool . Do you use the phone as a key on the model X? How do you do that?
  13. 4EVar


    If you go with Direct Line, which is usually the cheapest, they know all about the features of the Tesla and will take it into account.

    Middle row on 7 seater?

    The second row seats recline to a comfortable position for the passengers .The 2-1 split means 2 can be a different setting to the 1. If you download the user manual, it gives more detail.

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    This looks amazing! And thanks for the code. I tried importing it, but mine looks all squashed for some reason. Where do you input the values for electricity and diesel to make the cost calculations?

    TeslaMate Super Thread

    I've got TeslaMate running on Docker on a Windows 10 PC. How do I get alerts to work. I have set up a Telegram Notification Channel and the test alert works fine, but how do I set up Alert Rules. For example, I want an alert to notify me when the SoC is less than 25%. So I go to the "Charge...

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    It's not in my Tesla account, it's in my sister's account. I sorted it - I added my email to my sister's account as an additional driver. It still didn't show so I did a restart and it is now showing. Brilliant.

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    I have this working using Docker on Windows 10. I would also like to monitor the new Model X that we have in the family. How do I run 2 instances of Teslamate on the same PC? I have tried installing it using different port numbers but it didn't work. Any ideas?

    Model X vs Trackers

    We have insured the new Model X with Direct Line. They have asked for the brand of tracker fitted and when we said Tesla's own, they said they need proof of the tracker. Until they get this, the car is not insured for theft, What do we send them?

    It's not been cancelled so that's good news. Fingers crossed it will go ahead. What date is your appointment? When I spoke to the service centre on Thurs, they said thay still had no idea about pricing.

    I installed it today on a Windows 10 PC used as a media server. Really easy to install docker, then run the install script from PowerShell and it's all running great. Grafana took a few minutes to get my head round but I've set up the default dashboard and it's great. I'm looking forward to...

    Very impressive. You are a brave and talented person! Did you document it in any way? Videos? Pics? I can't wait to get my upgrade! I've been waiting patiently ever since they announced it in the US!

    Any news on MCU1 -> MCU2 upgrades in the UK yet?

    My appointment isn't for another 4 weeks yet, but they said they'll keep me posted on price etc so I'll keep you updated. I'm just excited that the upgrade option has finally come to the UK. Especially as my mcu1 is very flaky and been in the service centre for a rebuild once already.

    Any news on MCU1 -> MCU2 upgrades in the UK yet?

    I've just booked mine in for the upgrade. They said they couldn't give me a definitive price because they're waiting on the price for the tuner part. Does this mean UK will get FM and DAB tuner with MCU2? It's definitely technically possible as someone did a DIY upgrade with the tuner module...

    Dead MCU - options...?

    OK so an update on my situation, if it's of any use so anyone. Tesla recovered the data from my dead mcu1 so now it's working. They had the car for a week but kudos to them for getting it back. They said rather than replace the whole mcu, they can replace a daughterboard which will fix the issue...

    What difference will it make if is delivered before battery day? If it's delivered a day after battery day, it will still have been built weeks before. Am I missing something?

    MCU1 black after reboot, is it bricked?

    I have posted this on the UK sub to enquire about MCU2 but this is what happened to me: Spotify froze, so I did a reboot. The screen never came back on. When the MCU first failed, most things worked, including the autosteer and TACC. However, when I set it to charge, the A/C stayed on. So I...

    Thank you for the suggestions. That is really valuable. When the MCU first failed, most things worked, including the autosteer and TACC. However, when I set it to charge, the A/C stayed on. So I pulled the 12v battery cable for 5 min. Now I am left with: No entertainment system obviously...

    Any news on MCU1 -> MCU2 upgrades in the UK yet?

    Has anybody had a UK MCU1 to MCU2 upgrade yet? I spoke to a Ranger a couple of weeks ago and he said he'd seen a price list so was expecting it would be available soon.

    Zapped while charging new Model Y?!

    Something is faulty. Either the car or your charger. Most likely your charger. This should most definitely not happen and is not normal.

    Yeah. And you also have to be near enough for it to detect the key. So pretty useless in practice. Does the US version not have that limitation?
