    Supercharger - Aventura, FL

    There are major issues here. About 10 stalls aren't operating. Maybe more. I think a few people parked and went inside, not even realizing their car wasn't actually charging

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    Tesla's software update back in late spring "broke" the camera. It started giving false error messages (too slow, not enough space) The camera quit working: it either wouldn't automatically start recording when you got in your car or it would randomly *sugar* itself off while you were driving...

    Sentry said car alarm went off, but video was corrupted and no signs of damage?

    Tesla cam and sentry mode are all screwy due to the recent firmware updates.

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    Check that. It is back to having the same error almost every time now. I have no idea why it randomly worked again for ~2 days.

    Sentry Mode = vampire drain?

    Sentry Mode's battery drain is excessive, agreed. But we just have to deal with it, I guess.

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    Seems like Tesla must've fixed this. My cam works every time I get in the car now. For the last ~2 days. Not sure how though. I didn't update my firm ware, change my USB drive or alter my Tesla cam habits.

    Just got 2019.24.4

    Firmware update when ~96% of owners (per TeslaFi's website) had a newer version of software than I did.

    Just got 2019.24.4

    They said they would charge my Tesla account.

    Just got 2019.24.4

    Beats me. It was technically $9.96 or something like that. They asked if I still wanted to push the update and I said no, that's absurd. I have to use my phone as a WiFi hotspot to get updates now when I'm commuting to work.

    Dash Cam Too Slow after update

    I'm assuming it's a 2019.24.4 bug. I'm having the same issue on a drive that previously had worked almost flawlessly (except for the usual Tesla file corruption issues).

    MASTER THREAD: USB drives that work with Sentry and TeslaCam

    I think 2019.24.4 screwed up the dash cam. I'm using the same USB drive I've used since March/April and rarely had an issue. Now I get the gray "X" EVERY time I get in the car (last week or two, around the time I received the firmware update). I have to remove the drive and re-insert it to get...

    Dash Cam Too Slow after update

    You can't see crap out of the rear camera at night anyways...

    My service center sent me an email saying they charge $10 to do that when I put in a request.

    Dashcam: usb drive is full

    I'm getting an error saying my drive is too slow. I've had my drive since March and had no issues. But in the last week or two it almost NEVER works when I get in the car to drive somewhere. It ALWAYS shows the gray "X". I have to take my drive out and put it back in and then it starts working...

    Those with EnhancedAP to receive 3k discount on FSD

    No. What matters is what I've already said. I could use your same awful logic and turn it around on you. If people wanted a $7500 credit from the government, they should've purchased on time. They shouldn't get rewarded for purchasing later. Just like I shouldn't get punished for purchasing...

    Those with EnhancedAP to receive 3k discount on FSD

    No, I'm not. Tesla isn't the one who gave the rebate.

    Those with EnhancedAP to receive 3k discount on FSD

    I still think it's bull turd that someone can get my exact car for less than I paid AND get dual motors AND autopilot upgrades for free. So my enthusiasm for Tesla and FSD is...low.
  20. alseTrick

    Not one. But two flats.

    If you want to guinea pig, try putting a 20" on the front passenger and rear driver side. Then doing 18" on the front driver and rear passenger.

    Alarm went off for no reason at 3 AM

    My Sentry Mode starts recording "events" when it starts raining out. My car has recorded hours of rain... But rain never set my alarm off to my knowledge. My alarm's only gone off once - again, to my knowledge - and it was at the same time I heard a really loud bang outside on the 4th of July...

    Sentry mode while parked at home?

    Because it drains a TON of battery. I'm talking a legitimate 5-10% a day. I live in an apartment complex (no private driveway or garage) so I keep it on. I keep it on at work. And I obviously have it on when I'm going around town doing various activities. But to drain that much battery is...

    You don't have to be connected to WiFi to receive updates. When I asked Tesla to push updates to me several months back, I wasn't connected to WiFi when they came through. I think Tesla just prefers WiFi so they can keep their LTE costs down. So if you aren't regularly connected to WiFi, your...

    1. It would be nice if Tesla updated each vehicle to the latest firmware at delivery. But they don't. It's bad customer service, imo. 2. I was several versions behind when I got my 3 in October. About 4 months later and still no updates, so I asked Tesla to push it. I had about 3 separate...

    Touch screen control for wipers is dangerous

    So driving into work today it was raining. And I think my auto wipers were much better. Not quite as often as I can prefer but much more frequent than I recall. The only thing is, I'm still on the same firmware; the very outdated 2019.12.1.2. So that makes no sense.

    Rearview and side mirrors dimming

    How do you even tell if it's auto dimming? Maybe it says in the owners manual but whatever.

    San Jose/Blossom Hill hit and run on dashcam

    Have you never looked at Tesla DashCam footage before? It's nearly impossible to see the license plate except under the most ideal conditions (the appropriate lighting, slow or not moving, very close range). It is easily the worst aspect of the feature and something Tesla absolutely needs to...

    Trunk unlocks with phone in car; vehicle locked with card.

    Definitely not this. Too many scenarios where that phone might be a necessity.

    Trunk Lights

    Something like that has definitely happened to me before. I opened the trunk at night after a roadtrip and thought, "Man, these lights suck. I can't see anything!" I don't remember exactly what happened next. Maybe I took some items inside and came back for the rest and noticed that the trunk...

    Touch screen control for wipers is dangerous

    Yes. Not an acceptable alternative. Especially when you'd have your one hand perma-occupied while driving in less than ideal weather conditions.

    Touch screen control for wipers is dangerous

    THAT'S THE BEST LOL It won't auto-swipe no matter how obstructed the view is while driving. But it can not have rained for 20 minutes, and yet, as soon as i get in the car the residual moisture on the windshield sends the blades into a manic frenzy. Makes zero sense.

    Touch screen control for wipers is dangerous

    It's certainly worse (ie, more dangerous) than the traditional wiper stalk controls that most cars have.

    Sentry mode video from right repeater randomly corrupts

    It is a common issue that I've seen mentioned multiple times on here. My right repeater also has the issue you describe. I assume it's software. if it were hardware, the left repeater would be equally as problematic, no? Tesla will improve TeslaCam/Sentry Mode...eventually.

    You are once again intentionally misrepresenting the sequence of events.

    Your portrayal of events was incorrect. So I pointed it out.

    None that I'm aware of. Or, at least, nothing that is so obvious as to alert me to its presence during typical driving. October 2018 delivery. 10,000+ miles

    I3 Road Rage.

    The Tesla didn't flash its lights until the BMW slammed on its brakes and stopped in the middle of the street. The BMW's response(s) were wholly inappropriate from the start (while still in the highway).

    I3 Road Rage.

    Holy hell. 100% report that guy. He literally stops in the middle of the road twice in order to box you in. That is CRAZY. Word of advice: Don't EVER stop and roll your window down in that situation. F that [expletive]. Window down. Back up. Drive away. Pretty much zero chance anything good...

    What’s the one thing you like the least about your Model 3?

    9. Tesla is now charging owners to "push" firmware updates. I messaged Tesla last night since I'm still on 2019.12.1.2 5c87371. And per TeslaFi's unofficial firmware tracker, ~92.5% of all Tesla owners have more updated firmware than I (most of whom are multiple iterations ahead of me). Tesla...
