    Tesla Dashcam destroying USB drives

    i've had this happen to me in the past month when a firmware update caused a lot of touchscreen unresponsive errors. the USB would stop and start working randomly then finally the USB drive finally failed and wouldn't mount at all in a PC. new firmware seems to have stopped this.

    Being charged for "free" supercharging

    wasnt the idle grace period 15min? 5min seems very short considering if you are in a mall or eating or something you cannot get back to within 5 minutes.

    you can request a software update from the app, it will schedule an appt which someone will text you saying an update has been pushed to you and cancel the appointment. if you can't receive the update due to bad WIFI then reschedule for them to physically apply it at the SC.

    Liberty Mutual "alternative fuel" discount doesn't include Model 3 (or any EVs)

    This is actually opposite of original post but cities and counties charge an additional tax for alternative fuel vehicles. The reasoning is that we are not paying a tax that was built into gasoline prices that goes to road and highway infrastructure. Therefore the additional tax is required...

    Driving on Autopilot and coming up on slower cars in adjacent lanes

    i have the latest Autopilot and this just happened last week. the swerving was ALL ME no Autopilot intervention at all. if i had not intervened there definitely would have been a collision. Autopilot needs to take into consideration trying to pass slower cars in adjacent lanes and also curves!

    V9 Shrink Nav? Split Screen?

    It's more like allowing you to display 1 additional window above the media player pop-up. In the mini player mode you can have that plus camera plus nav shown. When you expand media player little more everything gets pushed up and nav is very small sliver at top. If you fully expand media player...

    "Navigate on Autopilot (beta)"

    selecting HOV lanes is very problematic in traffic because sometimes you have to get over 4 lanes to reach the HOV lane and then get over another 4 lanes to take an exit. should be an algorithm to take traffic into account and not suggest HOV lanes in relation to how close the next exit is.

    Is it smart to buy FSD for $5k while it’s still available for MX owners?

    very interesting read, but it also supports my theory that FSD is still years away given all they have to implement. and at least 1 processor upgrade if not more away, depending on what they find once they start implementing all those things you listed. my bet is 3 years away whereas Waymo...

    Is it smart to buy FSD for $5k while it’s still available for MX owners?

    FSD is still several years away based on this latest v9 update. i believe there will be hardware changes in addition to chips that will be necessary. i would wait. let me elaborate. we waited 2 years for this v9 update and it still cannot recognize street signs or make highway exit turns...

Granted I don't do this much but if you're a tech guy it's very annoying compared to Model 3. Google...

    V9.0 in September?

    Driving on Autopilot and coming up on slower cars in adjacent lanes

    when coming up on slower cars in adjacent lanes i notice that sometimes the car is over the line into my lane a little but the autopilot does not adjust to slow down or swerve a little. i typically have to take control. anyone else have similar experiences? maybe i am taking over too soon?

    News for Model X owners with the dreaded shudder

    Can you keep the 12V outlets on when the car is off?

    i tried this as well and it does seem to work. turned HVAC on via phone app and the rear 12V powered on and has been charging my scooter back there for the past 3 hours. old camper mode works also but u have to have seat belt extenders to register someone in the front seat

    MX loosing 5 to 7 miles in 8 hour spans while parked at work, Normal?

    Same with my 75D Figured it was normal. If you leave it untouched for several days it will slow down around the 4th day to like 2 mile drain per 24 hours.

    Renewing the debate on the best Fridge/Freezer for 6 seater MX

    No it doesn't. The car needs to be in Park gear to charge. Old camper mode was basically Neutral with E-brake on, the car shouldn't charge at all. The only way to keep 12V outlets on during charging is to use a USB mouse jiggler that tricks the car into thinking that someone is inside the...

    Renewing the debate on the best Fridge/Freezer for 6 seater MX

    i've posted this in other thread: putting the car in the old camper mode keeps all 12v sockets on indefinitely instead of Park use Neutral and Emergency Brake, you can switch HVAC off, lights off, screen cleaner mode, lock car with key only thing you can't do is charge it while in this state

    Can you keep the 12V outlets on when the car is off?

    just keep the car in the old camper mode, when in D don't push P to park but select the emergency brake from control panel you can turn off HVAC and put screen into cleaner mode and lock the doors with the keyfob 20 feet away keeps all 12V sockets on

    2017 Model X75, all 12v sockets shut off eventually when leaving car, sometimes they stay on for maybe 1 hour tops. here is how i keep my 12v sockets on all the time. i use seatbelt extenders on front seats to not trigger pressure warning. while in drive mode select the emergency brake option...

    Cabin Overheat Protection almost stranded us

    Acceleration Shudder

    i took delivery of my MX75 December 2017 and it was already locked in low suspension all the time. i changed it to normal because it is a more comfortable ride. yes under heavy acceleration there is the shudder but in normal driving i never notice it. let's hope the permanent fix comes soon!

    Am I screwed for going 75D rather than 100D?

    you could also charge to 100% there was a guy that has done it for years and the degradation has been about the same. the only noticeable extra wear is supercharging to 100% many times but standard 240v wall charging shouldnt matter. with power usage ranges from 350 to 450 which is typical you...
