    Video tab not working

    I tried to open my theatre tab where the Netflix and Youtube apps are, but I have been getting a blank screen since a few days ago. I have rebooted the system and still getting the same issue. Can anyone help?

    No navigation without connectivity

    My premium connectivity free trial has come to an end. I didn't extend the subscription because I don't really use any of the services requiring connectivity. However, I received an email from Tesla today and noticed that navigation won't be available without connectivity. Is this correct? Does...

    Automatic navigation to and from work

    i think what happened is that when i first set up my driving preferences, I set everything on to make the most of all the features. you're right though, i didn't really need it but i looked at the navigation to get an estimate of my arrival time.

    Automatic navigation to and from work

    When I used to drive to work every morning and drive home afterwards, my Model 3 picked up on my driving habits and automatically navigated to work in the morning and set up navigation to get home later on. I have since left that company but my Tesla still automatically starts the navigation for...

    If I get a flat tire in UK what’s my options?

    I found this repair kit for punctured tyres. Does anyone know if this is a good option when you get a puncture? The ratings seem to be good for the product.https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000Y8WB8W/ref=ask_ql_qh_dp_hza

    If I get a flat tire in UK what’s my options?

    I found the Tesla jack pads on amazon. They are sold singularly or in packs of four. How many do I really need? Will I only require one for fixing flat tyres?

    Anyone else have Version 2020.12.5 but can't see any traffic lights on screen?

    I have had the latest update 2020.12.5 for a few weeks now. I have read that one of the latest features is that traffic lights are now visible on the screen. However, I have yet to see any traffic lights whilst driving around. I can see traffic cones on the screen which have been visible since...

    Bad news and a bit of good news

    Insurance in the UK is such a scam. I hope the Tesla insurance they have in the states will be available here soon.

    Installing 2019.40.50.5

    There were issues with my voice commands after 2019.40.50.1 update. 99% of the time, my commands were unrecognised or didn't even register. However, after the 2019.40.50.5 update the voice commands seem to be working fine now. Haven't had a chance to test out what else has been improved.

    Sentry mode as rain detector

    Yeah, I've also noticed that I get more sentry mode events when it's heavy rain. Hopefully there will be a software update to make the mode less sensitive to this.

    Supercharge queries

    I charged for the first time at a Tesla supercharger. There were 4 bays, with one car using the first bay, so I opted for the 4th bay. At first, I was getting charge rate of 480 miles/hour. Then as I neared the remaining %, it slowed down to around 15 miles/hour! Is this normal? I've heard that...

    Wiper issue when going through tunnel

    Has anyone else experienced this issue? I've noticed that my wipers which have been switched to auto control, start wiping when I go into the same tunnel everytime. Just to clarify, it's not raining. I don't know if it is the lack of light in the tunnel which is triggering the wipers to start.

    My Tesla watch

    It's a Diesel Full Guard 2.5 You will need to get a watch which runs Wear OS in order to install Wear for Tesla app. It won't work with Samsung Gear watches.

    My Tesla watch

    I just finished designing my own Tesla watch face for my smart watch. I incorporated the Wear for Tesla app onto the face so that I can bring up the app with a single touch and can then control my car from my watch.

    Can the colour of the on-screen car be changed?

    I saw a green Model 3 today so I assume it must have been colour wrapped. I was wondering if the colour of his car on his control screen could be changed to match his new colour. Same with the colour of the car on your Tesla app.

    Can front camera be adjusted

    I've noticed that you can't see the bonnet of your car from the front camera. This isn't very good for when you want to see if someone has slightly hit your front. Can I adjust the front camera so that the front of my car is in view?

    If new model 3 has been repaired

    I took my model 3 to a professional detailer to let him inspect for a ceramic coating quote. He spotted several defects which my unprofessional eye was unable to. Then he looked at the front and said that it looked very much like the bumper panel had been repaired. I opened the frunk and he...

    What is difference between the two types of autopilot

    There seems to be two types of navigation on autopilot. One with the single blue line coming from the centre of the car in front, and one with two blue lines outlining the edges of the lane you are in. What is the difference? I've tried both and can't tell any differences.

    Whats the one unexpected great thing about your car?

    The maps are very good. Not sure if they use Google maps but they seem better than the Google maps on my phone. I also like how the voice command feature picks up exactly what I say even if it isn't able to perform some of it.

    Please list voice commands you know

    I have been testing the voice command function on my M3. So far I only know a few commands; "Navigate to..." "Cancel navigation" "Call ..." What other commands are there? I was hoping there would be one for folding/unfolding side mirrors. How do I ask it to play music from my phone?

    Things that could be improved on your 3

    I wish the button for the hazard lights was located on the steering wheel where it would be more accessible. Sometimes I spend too long looking for the switch to indicate a thank you to people who have given way for me to cut in front of them.

    How do you turn volume of chimes down?

    I managed to find the settings page to turn the chimes off, but everytime I start the car, the settings revert back to the chimes. Is there no way to save the preferred setting or do I have to set the chimes off everytime I start the car?

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    I work near Hackney in London. I wouldn't leave my car parked on the main roads, but the work car park is right in front of the office with windows overlooking the spaces so I figured that people wouldn't be too brave to try something there. I've not seen any other Teslas in the area so my one...

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    I contacted my detailer about the scratch and he kindly offered to fix it for free when I have the ceramic coating done. I am so relieved. However, I shall be pushing the police to take action and I will be popping into the local schools to find the culprit. I won't be posting or distributing...

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    If I have reported this to the police, am I within my rights to find the school and inform the teachers of the culprit, or will I get in trouble for doing so?

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    Thank for all the great advice and comforting words. I have decided to check the pricing with the detailers first as well as report the matter to the police. I will keep you posted on any outcomes.

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    Tried to take photo to show you all here but the car is so reflective and it's near impossible to see the hairline scratch. I have a feeling the police won't do anything but I'll still report it to get the crime reference number for the insurance. Just annoying that I will have to lose £500 in...

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    I need some advice here. Just spoke to LV and notified them of the vandalism. They said I would need to pay the £500 excess which should be recovered back from the culprit. I have just reviewed the sentry footage and the culprit is some local school boy! I don't think the police will take it any...

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    I keep mine in locked garage overnight so it definitely wasn't then. I parked in two public car parks this morning. I have a feeling that is when it happened. Still reviewing all the footage. If not then it will be at work. I park in the few spaces right outside our office.

    Just found that my new Model 3 has been keyed. Anyone else?

    I have only had the car for a week now and have just discovered a key scratch on the right side passenger door. I did anticipate that this would happen with our types of cars; lots of jealous people around! Just wondering how many others have also had their cars keyed yet. I insured with LV and...

    Stick on vinyl number plates

    Thanks for the comprehensive answers Roy. I did wonder if there were any holes behind the plate holder. Maybe I'll try to fill out the holes with blue-tack. Even if you do a good job of covering the holes with the sticker, won't the pressures from the driving plus pressures from using jet wash...

    No enhanced summon with V10 software

    Blasted regulations! That is why our autopilot is not as enhanced as the US version. I can understand the need for health and safety but can't they see that there isn't a spate of accidents occuring in the States?!

    No enhanced summon with V10 software

    Just had the V10 update and checked to see if the summon capabilities have changed. Unfortunately, unlike our American counterparts, we are still getting basic summon commands, ie. forwards and backwards, whereas in the States they are able to have the car drive itself to wherever you are in the...

    Range on my LR AWD seems low

    I picked up my Model 3 LR AWD yesterday and charged it up at home. The service centre had set the charge limit to 90%. I noticed that when it had stopped charging at 90%, the range indicated 287 miles. The range for my car on the Tesla site states 348 miles so taking that as the 100% range...
