    Almost ready with FSD Beta V9

    This. In the Boston area many exits are fairly sharp and NoA tries to take them too fast although there has been some improvement. As previously posted by others I either slow down with the thumbwheel or just take over myself. In my experience it just depends how sharp the exit ramp is...

    Almost ready with FSD Beta V9

    Agree, just waiting for the V9 FSD Beta video games to begin :) Of course waiting for any agreement by this raucous group will be like trying to nail jello to a tree!

    Almost ready with FSD Beta V9

    It sure will be more enjoyable to watch V9 beta videos (good or bad) then to follow this thread. Lighten up everyone.

    Yes based on Elon's tweets plus this from Q1 earning report "As a result, our FSD team is fully focused on evolving to a vision-based autonomous system and we are nearly ready to switch the US market to Tesla Vision"

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Waiting to see if Elon has something "definitive" about the next phase of FSD. His past statements have been a miss in this area so lets hope we hear something that could move the stock price.

    Will be extremely interesting what Tesla's quarterly financial report and the earnings call tomorrow reveal about the next FSD Beta and next release. I would expect an update that will certainly energize this thread.

    We'll see once V9 is out. That should once a for all determine the real future for FSD. It will be fun to watch the reaction once those videos are out rather then reading everyone pontificating the future of FSD here.

    OFFICIAL BUTTON WATCH

    Knowing Elon's communication skills when it comes to timelines are difficult to fathom all I care about now is the release of the limited beta for V9 so new videos are available. The general release of the button is less important. I'll make my judgement on the value of FSD once the beta...

    And to think Elon might leverage LDAR is the key tool to align and dock Dragon to the ISS:)

    He certainly implied that but I would think it likely that Tesla would release the upgrade to the FSD beta testers for a week or two first to get their initial feedback on the improvements. With Elon though it's anyone's guess what will actually happen.

    Turn off passenger side dash vent

    Because that still doesn't eliminate the passenger feeling some air flow. My wife constantly complains about this regardless of where you position the vents. 100% of ICE cars can accomplish this so eventually Tesla will add this as a feature.

    Not holding my breath but at least I have the advantage of getting lots of new features that I were not available or promised. Of course I never paid for them like I have for FSD! Hey at least I paid less for FSD then. Just a few of the freebies since I got my early Model 3 that keep me...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    I've posted this before but this level of FSD while not L5 or fitting any of the existing definitions would still make Tesla a boatload of money and be very helpful to many owners. I like many others don't care about robotaxi. Lets assume for a minute that I have to: 1) pay close...

    My guess is the FSD beta testers will get 8.3 first and based on their feedback to Tesla the button will be added within a few days assuming they provide positive feedback to Tesla.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    I think many if not most people are expecting the upcoming release to be the most significant improvement since the initial beta came out in October. That being said it intrigues me how negative many comments are. Why not just wait until the new release before assuming the worst?

    No Elon said "~ 10 days" as in approximately. And in another tweet he used the word "roughly" when indicating when the button would show up. Accuracy matters even if Elon isn't great with promising dates.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    Yes, and that video cllp was from Jan 26th on an older FSD beta version. Would be interesting if Brandonee916 would do the same drive on the current FSD version.

    April Fools FSD Download button.

    As the saying goes I'll believe it when I see it but I am optimistic just wondering how real that screen with the button is. Seems odd the button is the Service screen and not the Software screen which would seem to be a more logical placement by Tesla.

    Are you expecting any change in FSD behavior knowing that complex city street driving particularly Chicago has significant problems? Nothing new here.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    Or the half full thinking is the next beta release will show significant improvement. Let's hope that is the case.

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    Agree. I believe the next beta release is very important. Since it's been awhile since the last update significant improvement needs to be demonstrated to give credence that FSD will actually be a "thing". If improvement is minimal I suspect the stock price will reflect some new pessimism.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    I am not going to agree or disagree on your assessment since I didn't watch the video. I do think it should be apparent to everyone that FSD will not drive like you or I in some situations so we have to be careful to assume it will. I've noticed Waymo also drives differently then I would...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    I wonder how he will react when they start selling lots of electric cars and realize their profits driven mostly by service slowly fade away. For some reason the distinction between dealerships and car manufacturers has gotten little media coverage. That's going to be a huge mess, just saying!

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    As interesting as the FSD videos have been how many other people are now just waiting for the next release before watching more videos? Count me in that category. It's pretty clear now what FSD does well and what it does poorly. Certainly few if any surprises left so I'll just wait now...

    RWD in the snow

    Did not realize that. I wonder why since reducing the setting certainly helps to minimize losing traction when regen kicks in on snow. Hopefully they added new functionality that accomplishes the same thing.

    RWD in the snow

    Did you change your regeneration (braking) to low or keep it at normal? In both my M3 and MY when the road is snow covered I reduce it and that helps.

    New Model S interior - finally! (from the Q4 report)

    Sure it will. Elon has a thing about car companies revealing a product then changing significant features when it goes into production. He won't let that happen here. Besides when the Model 3 15" monitor was revealed the amount of negative feedback was staggering because they didn't like...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    AI DRIVR's video was very informative and really showed how much FSD has improved. Of course it made mistakes but rather then being nitpicky I think we should give Tesla credit for the overall improvements. Feels like we're maybe a month or two away from expanding the beta program.

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    FSD seems to work reasonably well in residential and low density city driving but it really struggles in high density urban settings especially older cities. There is a reason why Waymo selected a warm climate "newer city". Reduces many of the complex variables found in older cities. (i.e...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    Elon said release 10 or 11 so we'll have to wait and see if the next build (11) includes a wider release. And he also said "probably" which gives him a bit a flexibility:). So I'm thinking maybe 12. https://twitter.com/elonmusk/status/1342909163903455233 "A few more revisions needed. Probably...

    So instead of watching the road you want decisions whether to take over FSD to be made by staring at the screen? Certainly great to have visualizations but you've then just created a new set of risks.

    Or maybe Tesla has decided not to display the predictive path information making the comparison moot. Or maybe Tesla doesn't have this capability yet. Or there could be other reasons so making assumptions without additional information doesn't help much.
