    My Slacker radio is messed up. only gives limited choices.

    I sent a support request to LiveXLive yesterday and it sounds like ABC News will not be returning. :mad::confused::(

    Upgraded MCU1 to MCU2 - Are you experiencing New Problems?

    I had my 2015 Model S AP1 car upgraded to MCU2 a little over 2 weeks ago and the UI performance improvements from 1 to 2 are amazing! I did not opt-in for the $500 FM option as I never use it. Was listening to ABC News until that died a slow death into nothingness due to ABC licensing issues...

    Streaming News Headlines (ABC Changed?)

    According to this, LiveXLive (i.e. Slacker) appears to be aware of the problem, but no word of anything on it yet. :(

    My Slacker radio is messed up. only gives limited choices.

    Having the same problem here. Haven't really been on TMC for such a long time, but did so just to say that I'm having the same problem with ABC News (repeats of old news)

    General Discussion: 2018 Investor Roundtable

    Thoughts on this? Breaking New from Chinese Media: China’s Ministry of Commerce confirms that Tesla will build a plant (GF) in China Nevermind... looks like an old rumor

    Model S REST API

    I'm working on my own personal alexa service to control my car. I noticed the API allows you to open the trunk. Is there a method to close the trunk?

    2017 Investor Roundtable:General Discussion

    It's a couple extra cameras and replacing the Mobileye chip with the much more expensive nVidia PX2 unit, which, I'm quite sure, costs more than the extra cameras themselves.

    Pack Performance and Launch Mode Limits

    I want to thank the OP, @Ingineer, for bringing this out to the forefront and forcing Tesla to do the right thing. Without @Ingineer's notice, we would have been left in the dark about what really was going on!

    Another AutoPilot Easter Egg NOT!!!!

    Hmm... I wonder if that's a firmware change to remove the dangerous behavior or just a documentation change mentioning the bad behavior. Guess we'll have to wait and see. Thanks for the update @wk057

    Anyone refusing last software update - speed limit restriction?

    </raises_hand> I am ignoring the daily reminders to update until they remove this new unsafe feature.

    Another AutoPilot Easter Egg NOT!!!!

    You are making guesses as to why they have made changes like it was a secret conspiracy between Tesla and NHTSA to keep AP 1.0 alive without any real facts. What we do know is these changes that have been put in place seems unsafe with an increased chance of getting rear-ended as it slows the...

    Another AutoPilot Easter Egg NOT!!!!

    If if was driven by NHTSA, Tesla should at least tell their customers and not surprise us with a feature and safety regression. At least give us the ability to turn off "stupid" with such caveats. It erodes trust in a company that plays those kind of games with our cars.

    Another AutoPilot Easter Egg NOT!!!!

    I'm just curious what the deceleration rate is when it goes into unsafe and stupid mode, dropping the speed down 15/20 MPH. Does it slow down enough to the point where the brake lights activate? The thought of having a new Autopilot "brake check" feature seems dangerous. After hearing about...

    Short-Term TSLA Price Movements - 2016

    Yeah, it's insane... Up 26% so far today. The percentage gains I have with NVDA is now the same as I have with TSLA when I bought TSLA back in the beginning of 2013. Kuh-razy.

    I was looking at the price of TSLA this morning and thought... meh, then it shot up. What happened?

    I love reading his tweets. They're all very humorous rants and not to be taken seriously at all. It's all funny and he's a joke.

    What happened to the paint?

    Bad paint job! Looks like poor application of the primer. Tesla should fix this.

    How anal are you about parking spots and door dings?

    After experiencing a door ding, I got it fixed and park farther away now. Last week, I went to the grocery store and parked away from the other cars. When I came back to my car, I saw a Model X parked in front of me. I suspect he had the same thoughts, too.

    My Tesla was Broken into - Dash Cam Footage Leads to Arrest

    I had this happen to me, too. I was at a cemetery for an outside burial and some druggie followed the procession in and stole my sister's purse out of the car. Blackvue dashcam to the rescue... Posted the video to facebook, news spread to relatives/friends, TV stations started calling, thief...

    Another Audio System Review

    Even though the volume has an "11", it doesn't feel like an "11" with its disappointing lows. I went ahead and ordered the Light Harmonic system last year. Unfortunately, only the redesigned amp and a 35A replacement fuse has been delivered. However, it does sounds like two folks have already...

    16 March, Sacramento Raceway, 5305 Excelsior Rd, Sacramento, CA 4:30-7pm All-Comers!

    That's good to know they've changed their minds! Wow, I didn't realized P85DLs are beating my best time of 11.4. I won't be able to make it this time, so perhaps next time. I would be eager to see if any improvements in time come from the new 'Launch' mode, if any.

    16 March, Sacramento Raceway, 5305 Excelsior Rd, Sacramento, CA 4:30-7pm All-Comers!

    Hi George, Unfortunately, it's not documented here, but they also require you to wear a fire jacket if you are able to hit 11.5 seconds or less on the quarter mile. So for those of you Model S drivers with Ludicrous mode, be aware of that requirement. I guess they think my car might...

    Summon Changing to Smartphone Only (According to Consumer Reports)

    Limiting 'summon' to the app would be stupid. If they add the dead-man switch in the app, they should add it to the fob, too. The fob is more reliable and responsive than the app. What if the app crashes? What if you are in a garage or other area with poor or no cell phone coverage? What if...

    Carpool w/OUT Horrible HOV Stickers

    I agree. Some people like to have their cake and eat it, too. Just be prepared to eat your ticket, too, if you get one.

    Blown two tires

    Hahah. Good points! I've never needed it on the street other than to show off to friends/coworkers the power of the Tesla. Only been to the track once, but I'm sure my 19" tires will last longer than those with 21" tires who haven't been to the track.

    Carpool w/OUT Horrible HOV Stickers

    I'm guilty as charged. I'll use my removable stickers and removable front license plate (held on by powerful magnets), but I've never attached my front license plate (unless I'm using public parking where the Parking Police may be out and about). - - - Updated - - - I'm guilty as charged...

    Pics of people taking pics of Model S's

    Just saw this thread. Literally hundreds of expensive and custom cars at the Cars and Coffee San Francisco I went to on 7/2015. Bunch of Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Ferraris, Bugatti Veyron, Porsche 918 Hybrid, Pagani Huayra, etc. Sadly, I was the only fully electric car there was mine. The...

    Carpool w/OUT Horrible HOV Stickers

    Well, it's quite obvious the reason why these stickers are ugly. They're meant for ugly cars and all EVs look ugly, so no harm done! :biggrin: That is... until Tesla came along. :scared:

    Like it or not, 'tis the privilege for a single-occupant driver to drive in that lane during car pool hours.

    Carpool w/OUT Horrible HOV Stickers

    Nope. The car-pool-sticker-in-the-glove-compartment won't work and they can still give you a ticket for not wearing those hideous permanent stickers. You'd only be angering the officer for whipping out the stickers thinking that he wasted his time pulling you over and he'll tell you're only...

    Faraday Future

    No way! That looks more like a single-seat race car than a usable road car.

    GPS Sucks

    Same here. Tesla's Nav is "ok", but I prefer to use something that is always on the mark. And that's Waze. Tip to Tesla Motors: drop your Nav and use something proven: Waze. How many times do customers have to tell you this?

    (Reported on 12/26/2015) 11+ car wait at Tejon Ranch!

    This was one of the worries I had when I bought my first Tesla in 2013. Looks like the nightmare has finally come true. I anticipate more of this to happen as the Model X and 3 roll out.

    Bonnie's Xcellent Adventure w/X Sig 2 - Config, Delivery, Roadtrip

    The Model X is very impressive! Went to Studio Movie Grill after I met you yesterday at the service center and watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens. As soon as I saw the stormtroopers in the movie, it reminded me of the Model X.

    A thief broke into my car, but the alarm didn't go off. Why?

    Unfortunately, I couldn't get the license plate off the raw video. The DR650GW-2CH front cam is 1920x1080 while the rear cam is 1280x720. It's "High" quality settings don't seem up to snuff, so I'm going to configure the cam for "Highest" quality instead of the default "High" after the window...

    Yeah, Target security couldn't give us video on the matter, but they did pass it off to Sacramento PD.

    A thief broke into my car, but the alarm didn't go off. Why?

    Wrap is matte black and Ocean Blue 3M 1080. That stinks that U.S. cars don't come with glass breakage sensors. I wonder why? Even my old 96 Toyota Camry had that. We're hoping if enough people see the news and recognize the guy, he'll get caught. - - - Updated - - - I'm guessing even if he...

    A thief broke into my car, but the alarm didn't go off. Why?

    We were at a funeral in the process of putting a loved one to rest and a thief smashed into my car and stole my sister's purse (Yes, we should have known better than to leave valuables in the car in plain sight). The car alarm didn't go off and I'm wondering why?? Does it not detect glass...

    Dragtimes P90D Ludicrous 0-60mph and 0-100mph video

    I guess this means it doesn't matter what rims/tires you wear. I suspect our Ludicrous mode is really Insane mode.

    Ludicrous Mode upgrade now is 5k total!

    At the moment, there's little difference between the P90D and P85D in terms of the 1/4 mile run. P85D can do it in 11.6 secs. P90D can do it in 11.4 secs according to many reports here. Tesla Motors and Motor Trend says the P90D can get it to 10.9 secs. But I don't think that firmware is...

    Sacramento Raceway, Wednesday 28 October, Let's TEST the newest software update

    I have no idea as I was too focused on the road ahead and didn't look at the opponent time results until afterwards. After every run, he'd turn off his car and opened up his hood. Perhaps to cool the engine down or something. That engine compartment looked extremely cramped! I guess I should...

    I don't recall any spinning. Just a quick chirp and I was off.. Amazing traction capability. Only about 1K miles on the tires.

    Sacramento Raceway, Wednesday 28 October, Let's TEST the newest software update

    Well, it was a good day to head out to the raceway for a little bit of fun. This was my first time drag racing and it was fun. Anyways, a few tidbits: - The first run was my best time and I was probably around 80-85% battery at the time. - The first run was when Max Battery was in the...

    I found my dash rattle -- defroster diffuser

    Had the same problem with my older P85. Easy to reproduce the problem by hitting the steering feel with your fist. Annoying as hell, but easy to temporarily fix yourself by stuffing some insulation material in the right spot.

    Repairing Crease in Frunk

    You brought back an old thread. The older cars had the double-latch system and they had a lot of issues with the frunk crease. When I had my older car, I'm fairly certain I did nothing to cause the crease since I never used the frunk, but the service center claimed I closed my frunk...
