    Reservations Statistics

    Anyone deciphered any potential useful formatting of the reservation numbers? This number was from an order placed about 10:30 ET: RN107000XXXX

    Firmware 7.0

    I wish I hadn't upgraded without checking the forums first... tempted to visit the SC for a downgrade, as 7.0 is mostly just a bunch of blank UI real-estate for me.

    How satisfied are you with the non-AP (Classic) V7.0

    Those should be completely separate groups of developers: anyone could cobble together a media player app using iOS or Andriod developer tools in a matter of days, if not hours! If Tesla is using a dev framework that takes more than 10x or 100x of other platforms, that should be a concern. AP...

    How satisfied are you with the non-AP (Classic) V7.0

    One of my pet peeves in the old UI, the crappy Media app, is still an utter piece of tripe that shouldn't have passed muster when I received my car 3 years ago, let alone today! While I can understand wanting to have large UI buttons, that doesn't mean you have to use mass amounts of...

    Has Tesla paused 7.0 roll out?

    I'm tempted to go to the local SC and ask for a downgrade, as 7.0 took the poor 6.x UI and made it abysmal. Not just the center console got horrifically made unusable, they actually managed to make some of the poorly thought out apps like the Media app even *worse*, which is really saying...

    v7.0 Owner's Manual ?

    They are still trying to merge in the changes marked up in white-out on the editor's monitor before releasing the final edition to the pubic. Sort of like the UI....

    (Install not to code) Project: Save $1500

    Good catch from the poorly lit / grainy photo! While not being an electrician, even I can see how it could be an issue during installation, or if in a location where vibration / movement would cause the cable to rub against the cutout after installation. But I'm wondering how often that...

    Geocaching in a Model S?

    Having been geocaching for a number of years, mostly in my P85 for the last few years, I almost always just rely upon either my handheld GPSr or smartphone for the entire trip, given that one can't readily upload a bunch of waypoints / POI into the S nav system. For one geocaching event I...

    Model S Design Studio - Pimp My Ride

    Wow are there some crazy options out there, and I think I used most of them! :tongue:

    Meetup at Hagerstown Supercharger

    We'll be visiting the area from NC over the long weekend, although we have a pretty tight schedule of events already planned on Saturday; but as they are practically within spitting distance of the SC, hopefully will be able to drop in and say 'hi' either there or at the mall. Note that your...

    @TeslaRoadTrip 2014 (Feb 15-17, 2014) - Dinner Event Signup & Details Available!

    So many east coast locations have become possible destinations since last time! Orlando for one of the several "Star Wars" weekends at WDW? Or Key West if the SC there and at Plantation get done any time soon...

    Looking for Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill Tesla Owners to Test New Mobile App

    And I thought I was driving a lot with 55K miles after 25 months! :eek:

    P85D won't be available for test drives

    I definitely remember that car in the lot at the event, it was drawing a crowd (myself included) Okay, true enough that it was just after the very, very limited early deliveries began (the DC event was in mid-July 2012), guess I didn't really consider them to be delivering cars at that point...

    P85D won't be available for test drives

    Way back when they had the original test drive events (prior to any actual deliveries; this did pretty much require that you already had put down a deposit), went to the one up in DC. For the two rides I went out on (one as driver, one as back seat passenger), the Tesla rep was pushing the...

    Roof/Ski Rack Range Impact

    We loaded two mountain bikes on the Whispbar rack and took a very long road trip from Raleigh NC to St Louis and back via the indirect route of superchargers that connects from the SE to MidWest via Great Lakes states (about 1300 miles each way), so pretty much all freeway driving. Based upon...

    Looking for Raleigh / Durham / Chapel Hill Tesla Owners to Test New Mobile App

    If you are still looking for a test subject, I'm a few minutes from RDU on the Brier Creek / Leesville side and have a fairly flexible schedule.

    Dear Scottsdale AZ Model S owner

    For a non-SC charger, that pretty much implies you have to use the adapter, which is locked to the charge port on the S. So while someone could indeed hijack the cable, the tell-tale adapter would still be in place on the S.

    Supercharger is NOT your personal parking spot

    If they tied the activation of the charger to confirming an alert panel on the main display, that would hopefully reduce the "I didn't know!" factor. Especially if it prompted to enter a contact number/email in case Tesla needs to reach the owner (or just went with the already existing contact...

    Supercharger is NOT your personal parking spot

    Didn't get the opportunity to chat; son and I took bikes off the roof rack and pedaled around the area while wife hung out at the car. The other S showed up at some point during that time and we left before they returned from the mall. Was guessing it was a backing up issue; my wife got a huge...

    Supercharger is NOT your personal parking spot

    There are definitely some clue-free S owners out there using the superchargers... on our trip from NC to MO via the great lakes states earlier this year, most amazing display of cluelessness was at the Mishawaka IN charger where an elderly couple pulled in parallel to the curb, blocking off...

    About time to unveil the D and something else

    Would love to see how it works in "real world" scenarios with wheel-destroying pot-holes to dodge, construction zones with temporary lines painted a foot or two over from the old partially removed lines, etc.

    map updates!

    Pretty sure that 6.0 just changed the rendering of the navigation map to be slightly more 3D / forced perspective, as it was definitely one of the first things I noticed, and didn't get the map update until a week or two later.

    Nikola Tesla Museum Campaign - Buy a Brick

    So if I submit an 8x8 brick order with a Tesla logo, would that fly, or get shot down?

    @TESLAROADTRIP “Tesla Meets Tesla” Massive Fund Raising Campaign

    Not able to attend the event, but some of the "buy a brick" options look interesting. Has anyone reached out to Tesla to see if they will allow their various logos to be used on the 8x8 bricks?

    Bottoming Out

    I've actually managed to get the car completely high-centered while attempting to turn around at night on a friend's very dark country driveway with what turned out to be a much steeper shoulder on one side than the other.:crying: Even raising the suspension didn't help raise it enough to get...

    map updates!

    One of only a few dozen features lacking in the overpriced nav system that are currently available in the cheapest of auto GPS receivers. :wink:
  28. dflye


    I'm still shocked every time I get a loaner and it doesn't have the springy/grippy bits to keep various sizes of beverages from launching out of the cup "holder". I'd love to hear the reasoning they used on removing that feature.

    Massively ICE'd

    Should have just had the restaurant management announce "Would the owner of the truck with plate XYZ-123 please come to the parking lot. The four-wheeler on the trailer is on fire." Thinking they would have come running in a hurry and then security could coerce them to relocate.

    Cool new logo!

    Logo change? Was away for only a few hours, refreshed to look for new posts and see that the logo / title has changed! Looks nice, but seems to have some layout issues with the countdown banner in the header. n.m., had window maximized, seems the countdown position changes fine with window width.

    Suspicous Listing

    If they do now, they certainly didn't when I received mine back in November 2012! Ahh, how the times and default options change over time. So many options/defaults available now that weren't two years ago!

    Almost ICE'd at Burlington, NC Supercharger - 7 of 8 Stalls Blocked

    Backing into an SC spot is always a pain for me, as the sight-lines on the car are off due both to the offset camera & to the different axle widths and there still aren't any guide-lines in the backup camera display. To be slightly more back on track with the recent off topic theme: I'd...

    @TeslaRoadTrip - Supercharging Across America

    Awesome pics, be nice to see them at higher resolution! Wish I'd had the vacation time left this year to participate as it appears you had some awesome road trip adventures! I've only made it as far as St Louis from Raleigh on the SC network over the Memorial Day weekend earlier this year, we...

    bicycle transport

    I have a Whispbar setup with 2 Frontloader bike mounts. Got the bars / bike mounts through REI to get a discount and the mounting kit direct from manuf (as REI didn't stock). The installation wasn't too bad, and I'm tall enough that hoisting bikes onto the roof isn't a problem. There is...

    Full Superchargers? How Often?

    I've used most SC on the east coast from FL to MA and also those on the northerly route heading to STL; other than during the "Tesla Road Trip" heading to DC a few months back, I have never seen more than two or three other cars at any SC, most of which had 8 bays. Only place I've had to wait...

    Hmm, still flaky at times, VT stopped tracking wife driving car around for a while, but iOS was working, now VT is tracking again but iOS app is in polling vs streaming mode it seems.

    Tesla lease denied due to lack of credit history

    I thought he said gross income, not net income... if the profit margins are low or other expenses are high, $80K/month gross may not translate into enough buffer for the credit checker to think that $2K/month is a safe risk for them.

    Regarding transition from TESLIVE

    I'm sure that every story always has at least two sides, and those that win a battle traditionally get to write history based upon their version of events. While I don't have any horse in this race, I'm curious if the other parties mentioned will be allowed to defend their position and...

    Firmware 5.9

    Similar to jayman venting earlier, I'd have to say that the statement that cars with constant WiFi access would be getting priority on updates is debatable. Either that, or a large number of the numerous folks posting about their 5.9 experiences have WiFi at home that reaches their vehicle...

    Dogs in a Model S??

    Okay, wanted to make sure that was still true so that someone else doesn't put a similar sign in their car and unwittingly roast their pet if they are away for more than 30 minutes. I guess one could attempt to use the VisibleTesla scheduler to setup periodic points in time when it would turn...

    Why is my battery icon glowing??

    Oh, you hadn't heard about the various colors of glowing rings around the battery icon based upon how may kWh you've pumped through the battery so far? So at least you've reached the first circle of enlightenment, you'll have to ask Dante about color rings past that point, he is the grand...

    Our 7-Year-Old Hopes His “Tesla Flat Stanley” Can Visit Every Supercharger

    Heater is not working.

    It takes a minute or so for the heater to really get going. When set to heat, if on auto settings, it will direct the flow to the floor. So if you are expecting air flow out of the dash, you have to manually adjust the settings to set the airflow direction. I end up doing this most times when...

    Maryland Superchargers

    Having crossed US-1 on foot while charging at Glen Allen, it definitely is not a crossing I'd recommend for those with small children, slow of foot or otherwise unable to play human Frogger as there are absolutely no pedestrian accommodations at the nearby intersections.

    Supercharger - Bethesda, MD

    Well, I don't think any individual S was in place at the SC for much longer than an hour, as both spots rotated through to new S while I was there; I just wasn't at the front of the line on the first SC spot's rotation, and was killing time in the mall while on the HPWC during the second SC...

    Supercharger - Bethesda, MD

    Paid a visit to Bethesda on Monday afternoon to get enough charge to make it to the Glen Allen charger on the way home after the Tesla Road Trip event, took a few low quality cell phone pictures there while waiting for a spot to open up. Base of the charger: Plugs on wall behind charger...

    Raleigh owners: anyone notice the non-Tesla car fire by the Angus Barn?

    Thread title seems to have been made much less mundane, and not so much poking fun at recent Tesla fires. And now I'm hankering to dine at the Angus Barn again, haven't been there for probably a decade… sure do miss those team meals sponsored by previous employers! :biggrin:
