    one or two key fobs?

    @Fastcar: Did they explain why they did that, or just say "uh sorry here you go," with no explanation? The mind boggles at why they'd've done that.

    Which will be completed first, Tesla FSD or…?

    Tough call! ;-)

    Supercharger - Darien CT Rest Area

    Heh, thanks for making me smile. :D Welcome to the (Tesla) club!

    Tesla coercing software updates!?!

    @loganss - I got that notice today too, sigh. I have some repairs tomorrow anyway; I had said not to upgrade it, but now or in a month, I may as well do it now in case there are problems. Sob.

    How pairing at Supercharging works

    Thanks for mentioning this. I must be very oblivious; I've never paid enough attention to notice this pattern. Helpful tip!

    Tesla coercing software updates!?!

    Wow, I'm a real dinosaur with my 2018.32.4 software, huh. I don't remember getting that message yet in my car (NOTE: my memory bites), but darn, I presumably will get it or at least will be affected by the change, notice or no. Bummer. Maybe my software is too old to get the warning, LOL...

    First gas station in America to ditch oil for 100% electric vehicle charging opens in Maryland

    @loganss: Groovy about the adapters. I like how the owners think.

    First gas station in America to ditch oil for 100% electric vehicle charging opens in Maryland

    Thanks, @loganss! I haven't gotten there yet, but I'm very happy to hear it has J1772 plugs, not just CHADEMO. Yay! That's the one I can use with the standard Tesla-provided adapter that comes with the car, IIRC. Sorry their layout is funky, though.

    First gas station in America to ditch oil for 100% electric vehicle charging opens in Maryland

    Oh, good idea. I do want to go check it out, so while I'm there, I'll do that. :)

    First gas station in America to ditch oil for 100% electric vehicle charging opens in Maryland

    Interesting. :) I love seeing this happening - and in my area (sorta), too. Not that I'd need it (wrong direction for me, plus we have a HPWC) and anyway, it's a DC fast charger . . . but that's not the point. :cool: I hope (a) rates are reasonable and (b) enough people patronize his...

    Tesla drops annual service for as needed service

    Hmm, you'd think they'd take the $22 off that $2750. Well, my quote for tomorrow's maintenance and warranty work is just the flat $200 under the ESA; everything else was listed as being $0. So maybe my SC hasn't gotten around to this yet. It was interesting they sent me a list ahead of time...

    Tesla drops annual service for as needed service

    I'm thoroughly lost now. I got my Model S in Feb. 2013 and bought the 4+4. In 2 days, I'm going in for my 6th visit, like 3-4 months late. :oops: Although since I've put on more miles than whatever-amount-per-year, I have a some vague recollection that they doubled up service once or twice to...

    @markb1, good to hear. :cool:

    Software Version 9/10 for Non-AP/Classic Cars

    LOL @ "didn't even know how to use" good grief, it's not that weird/different (in some ways probably easier).

    I think I get an error trying your link: "You do not have permission to view media within this album." So I can't vote. :(

    Software Version 9/10 for Non-AP/Classic Cars

    Aw @Knightowl, sorry. I have service this coming Friday and am not looking forward to having "the talk" with them. About how the software update adds nothing for very old car, but makes most features worse, and could they please make me one of their exceptions, which I know they have done for...

    Who can spot the glaring UI bug?

    I was so focused on "what's the UI bug?" that I overlooked that, heh. :oops: But found it out the hard (easy?) way by changing the setting when charging. (Whew, yay!)
  18. kendallpb

    Who can spot the glaring UI bug?

    BTW it doesn't seem to be true. It changes your limit to 80% is all, and you can . . . change it back if you need to. Huh.

    Any problems using HPWC Gen 2 with older Model S?

    Groovy, good to hear it's not some general thing I just couldn't find when searching, thanks! I haven't had any problems with our Gen 1, Superchargers, or my J1772 adapter, so this gives me very strong hope that it really is those two wall chargers at Tysons. :D That said, I realized when...

    Any problems using HPWC Gen 2 with older Model S?

    I have a 2013 Model S S85, pre-AP). Our Gen 1 HPWC bit the dust, but I'm concerned about buying a Gen 2 one. I tried two different ones at the Tysons Corner, VA mall (both Gen 2), but neither worked for me. The message on my dash said the charger wasn't inserted all the way; the ring on the...

    Who can spot the glaring UI bug?

    Oh, so that's what my other half meant when he told me about that pop-up and that it was tough to tell if it was really charging. Thanks, now I know what he meant. Good grief, what stupid placement for the message! (Fortunately, maybe because I've gone there later at night - or because I have...

    Signature Bluetooth Connectivity Issues

    I have an early 2013 Model S85 and had experiences like this on and off for a while. Sometimes rebooting the car or my phone helped; sometimes not; sometimes it would just start working later that day or the next morning. I took it to Tesla, who claimed it worked fine after a reboot - and it...

    Brown Metallic Paint Question

    I have the brown. Back when Teslas were less common, the random people who came up to me to talk about the car occasionally would usually complimented me on the color. :) The funniest thing to me, though, was when I was in another state and charging at a public charger (not Supercharger) at a...

    Service Center - Rockville - no online reservations?

    I tried 0 at one point and got to no one; I get the main voicemail after like one ring, at both the Tysons and Rockville numbers that I have. But I am kicking myself, because I stopped by Tysons for a different reason and meant to ask about Rockville, but forgot! D'oh. I'm going to schedule...

    Service Center - Rockville - no online reservations?

    The Rockville, MD service center is my preferred one in my Tesla account. It says "Your preferred service center has online scheduling." on my account page, so I almost made a service appointment over the weekend but delayed. I thought it pulled up that one when I clicked schedule appointment...

    Aw, disappoint. :eek: After my update prompts for V9 disappearing for months, the latest update's causing it to prompt me all the time again. Rats! And here I need to visit the service center soon because my months of non-functioning Bluetooth & non-functioning voice control is really...

    Dulles Airport EV Charging

    @bhzmark - Great, thanks for the info. So do you mean one cable serves 6 spaces or one charger with 6 cables coming out of it? Anyway, great to hear they're adding more stuff!

    Dulles Airport EV Charging

    Sorry, catching up on comments cuz I couldn't finish reading/replying earlier. @DFibRL8R & @paulkva: Good ideas, thanks! @Reddy Kilowatt : I'll reply shortly! I'm feeling better about my options now, whew. I love this community. My spouse feels I'm too worried about leaving my car...

    Dulles Airport EV Charging

    Thanks, I thought about that but forgot to mention it (okay, I was lazy cuz I was typing on my phone, heh). Our closest plug would require an extension cord. While I realize some folks do that, since Tesla says not to, I am very nervous about doing that when we'll be gone (and for so long)...

    Dulles Airport EV Charging

    I presume nothing’s changed in a few weeks. ;-) I’m going on a 2-week trip soon and while I don’t want to park at Dulles for 2 weeks, yikes, $$$. I’m wondering if anyone knows of parkng nearby that has 120v plugs officially on offer for long-term trip parking? Once I drove to Philly for a...

    Software Version 9/10 for Non-AP/Classic Cars

    Shoot, all this time, and my car started prompting me for the OS upgrade yesterday. I thought I'd gotten away without the prompts! ;-) My other half has the new OS on his Model X. I feel like the maps get more tedious to use each version, which is funny since they're making the map...

    AutoSteer Techniques?

    @gnuarm: I just used autosteer a lot, going out of town for Turkey Day and kept two hands on the wheel. Not in the normal positions I would use without autosteer, of course! I had one resting firmly/slightly-pulling on one side (on/above the spoke) and the other lightly resting on/holding the...

    AutoSteer Techniques?

    I tried this on a longer drive (well, longer sequence of Autosteer). I got one warning. Another time, I over-compensated and killed Autosteer by accident. Still, I feel like I basically have it. I kinda wish they had other sensors in the steering wheel, though; it's unintuitive that you have...

    AutoSteer Techniques?

    Thanks, @BerTX. I tried it earlier today and I wasn't as heavy-handed as I feared, I guess. I kept it usually to one hand, sometimes lower down and sometimes around middling, and never got the dreaded Thou Shalt Apply Torque Or Lose Autosteer warning. It wasn't a super-long trip, but long...

    AutoSteer Techniques?

    I'm glad I found this thread; I'll try both things. I'm kinda afraid I'll be too heavy-handed and it will cancel autosteer! ;-)

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    Meh as a developer like you (who actually sees the problems in what's requested and discusses them), IMHO I can expect just enough - i.e., better. ;) But yeah, I've worked with people who're literal and just do what's requested. The worst is when the request's poorly written, the dev isn't...

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    Gotcha, thanks. I think the thing about being able to drag to a desired position confused me and I spaced on the details, and just confused myself. Hey anyone who's already updated, if you get another update . . . take it, please! :D

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    Thanks! This was someone who upgraded? Hey do you know if you can put music on top and something else on the bottom? I frequently go Music/Energy instead of X/Music. Anyway, the apps in question are . . . well, near the top of the screen and clearly 2 up (even if one is Music), which is lot...

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    o.m.g. They can't be that stupid. They can't really only be reading titles and summaries and not actual feedback. And anyway, no one said "allow X but prevent me from doing Y" . . . I mean they had to do extra work to make only some apps work. Lordy. o_O

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    I've used it. From pictures, the new icon is stupid and the label nonsensical, but I've used it. For example, some names simply don't work well with "call XYZ." Also, I have yet to figure out how to navigate to someone other than to pull them up in the phone app and tap the address. (I must be...

    Petition to demand "camera on top, media player on bottom" be retained in UI

    As I feared, Tesla was asked for XYZ because ABC, and Tesla said "hey let's implement AYQ." Le sigh. It sounds like an improvement, don't get me wrong! But it's weird that #1 in order to make something unrelated to the Media Player happen, you have to have the Media Player open. And weird that...

    Well, nice the Musk replied to a tweet. Methinks folks know this means nothing till it actually happens. ;-) And good lordy hopefully they didn't take the wrong message from all the complaints, and they're not just implementing a buried preference to make the camera or nav be the permanent app...

    Software Version 9/10 for Non-AP/Classic Cars

    The glitch to try to get 3 (3? I just wanted 2...) things on-screen at once sounds complicated and confusing, but maybe just because I haven't updated. I should probably stop by a Tesla store to see it in person. I haven't even been prompted for the update! I was tempted to turn off wifi to...

    Software Version 9/10 for Non-AP/Classic Cars

    @migselv: Yes, I see the manual settings. I was wondering about auto/manual toggling, where it SEEMS like instead of 4 toggles (right now, I can make recycle, A/C, fan speed, and fan location independently be auto or manual) you only get 1 toggle (all 4 features automated or all must be...

    Software Version 9/10 for Non-AP/Classic Cars

    @Myself: From a video I watches, it seems like climate control is either 100% auto or 100% manual. Not a good move on Tesla's part; there was no need to remove the functionality and dumb it down. This version seems to be about #1 making an S/X look like a 3 and #2 removing options users were...
