    Found Wireless Adapater/game Controller Combination For Tesla Arcade Atari Games

    Thanks for the research on this. It was very helpful. One thing I did note, which I thought confusing was the Magic NS didn't have "green" in its color cycle *unless* it was plugged into the car *and* a game was running. Very strange, and maybe it's cosmic rays, or just me, but I tried several...

    Supercharger - Waco, TX

    Yeah. I'd have preferred something in West at one of the Kolache places to get closer to a Supercharger every 50-75 miles on 35. West & Georgetown would be better stops for me.

    Supercharger - Waco, TX

    That would bring it to 22 stalls. Impressive.

    Supercharger - Texas Best Smokehouse - Grapevine, TX

    That's unlikely, unless ONCOR ran a feed much larger than the project specified. When we discussed with the city council, we suggested they allow Tesla to plan for twenty stalls and voltage expansion, but that didn't happen. Maybe coming back through a second time would be easier, but it took...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Yes, TeslaWaze does work, but (like other auto-refreshing websites), it will eventually crash the GUI causing a few minutes of frozen screens followed by a reboot. This seems to happen faster when AP is in use. I’m still trying to figure step-by-step instructions to reproduce for an eventual bug...

    Supercharger - Texas Best Smokehouse - Grapevine, TX

    Yeah. All three cities have had nearby pins at one point or another. Alvarado was Burleson (many of us still call it Burleson because of the way the city limits are gerrymandered), Henrietta was Wichita Falls and the original Grapevine pin became Southlake. it would be interesting to see if...

    Supercharger - Texas Best Smokehouse - Grapevine, TX

    Interesting location. I guess Texas Best Smokehouse is "all-in" on Superchargers. It's not even five miles from the Southlake Supercharger, so that's almost the most dense Supercharger placement anywhere in the world. (almost)

    There is already a College Station thread. I've asked this thread to be merged into it: Supercharger - College Station, TX

    Supercharger - Northwest - Kalispell

    No idea. My experience is that Tesla likes locations that cost them little-to-nothing. If there's a more desirable location with sufficient electric infrastructure and an owner who's ready to build now, perhaps it's worth sharing with Tesla.

    Supercharger - Helena, MT

    Spoke with a local owner in Kalispell and he said that Super 1 Foods wasn't going to build Kalispell until they were confident this Supercharger in Helena was successful. He suggested stopping by in Helena and letting the management know that you came into the store because of the Supercharger...

    It's official! Tesla website says HW2.0 cars "scheduling now" for MCU2 upgrade!

    Were you charged $2250 or 2500?

    Supercharger - Fort Worth, TX - Clearfork

    No. Given it predates the Whitmore Street Supercharger, I think this one is abandoned.

    It's official! Tesla website says HW2.0 cars "scheduling now" for MCU2 upgrade!

    The Fort Worth, TX Service Center completed the upgrade for our 2017 X90D MCU1/AP2.0. They accepted the car at 11:00 AM and were finished at 4:40 PM. I was warned that it could take more than a day if it took longer than expected to load firmware. The charge was $2500 plus tax. Some notes that...

    Chrome delete in Dallas?

    Members on our FB page have suggested places like Exotic Auto Bay (Garland), Texas Audio Customs (Garland), Fortune Wrap (McKinney). There are others. Figuring out which one to use will take some careful questioning based on your requirements.

    5 seat MX can't stay cool in 93 degree weather

    Heat rejection film on the windshield helps tremendously on the X. I would note that if you use polarized eyeglasses, there's a possibility of introducing annoying halo effects into your field of vision. I have tinted the roof on S & 3. That also helps, of course.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    @HankLloydRight , have you tried this BT transmitter to confirm it works? I saw various transmitters tested in the Model 3 forum and the testers found that none would pair in TX mode and some would pair in RX mode. The assumption was there was a bug on Tesla's side. Another comment said the XM...

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    I was thinking with manufacturing stopped, there is actually a substantial supply of MCU2 / AP3 components that were destined for new cars that are now available. Of course they're probably in Fremont, so not available to ship...

    Does Tesla not handle registration/taxes for Texas customers

    Some recent purchasers have said that they needed to complete the registration themselves (just like the old days).

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Green addresses that on Twitter. MCU1 uses an analog tuner and MCU2 digital. He says there’s “substantial” labor in doing the tuner replacement, so I guess Tesla decided to forego that...

    Dallas Gallery with most models to look at?

    The Plano Service Center also has cars to view and test drive. And if they don’t have what you want, and you don’t see a car waiting for delivery, you can drive to the Gallery at Legacy West.

    Tesla doesn’t help when they send out announcements like this in the app. None of my Teslas have MCU2.

    Supercharger - Fort Worth, Texas

    It’s been open for awhile. I have used it when Fort Worth was completely ICEd. CHAdeMO is unfortunately limited to 50kW.

    Traveling Salesman - Using Every Supercharger in DFW Area

    There are websites that can create the most efficient route for you. I'd note that Fort Worth is often ICEd on weekend mornings and Arlington is often blocked by Teslas during baseball games.

    Supercharger - San Antonio, TX

    Assuming the rest of the markings are correct, the spaces with the International Symbol of Access are only for handicapped parking, without or with using the Supercharger. Most Texas Superchargers have a couple of wider spaces that say something like, “Designed for Handicapped Access, Use...

    DFW Airport Charging Rant!

    I spoke with DFW about this in 2015 and the environmental manager at the time fully understood the desire for 110 VAC outlets and thought he could make that happen. In the meantime, they airport got funding to install the J1772 chargers for free and couldn't get comparable funding for the...

    Texas Delivery Questions

    A Tesla employee will drive the car to you, make sure you can pair your phone to the car and perhaps answer some questions you have. They’ll then get a Lyft back to Plano and prepare for their next delivery.

    Supercharger - Alvarado, TX

    It’s another ironically named Texas Best Smokehouse, just like at Henrietta. That and the permits pulled make it almost certainly a Supercharger.

    Permanent Texas Plates

    60-90 days is not uncommon and it's all on Tesla's side (nothing you can do at the Assessor's office). If your second temp tag expires, Tesla should be able to get a third one to you.

    Supercharger - Henrietta, TX

    My opinion is the rumor is incorrect. Tesla does have a mobile tech position posted in Corpus, though.

    Tesla infotainment system upgradeable from MCU1 to MCU2

    Yeah, especially if they time it to do FSD, yellowed screen and MCU all on the same visit. Seems like there would be a great profit opportunity, without much additional labor cost while the dash is opened up.
