    MASTER THREAD: 2019.40.50.x - Driving Visualization improvements, new voice commands, Camping Mode

    Installing now. I understand these updates are tweaks to the Christmas Gift upgrade. I just wish they could tell us what the tweaks are. If anyone notices changes please let us know. Tx!

    Wow

    I wasn't excited when I first saw it. Tesla stock dropped $20 today. It's too big of a change. But the more I learn, and the more I see it, I really like it. The folded rocketship stainless steel body is actually quite a brilliant idea. The roll up bed cover is very functional. Price point...

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    Yes, there are many companies making great progress on expensive robotaxis in select environments including Cruise. How many ride hails get rejected because it requires an unallowed route? Most of these companies including GM's Cruise have no concrete plans to release in consumer cars. You...

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    Waymo is not a product for public cars. It is extremely expensive and only for Taxis. GM works only on designated limited access highways. It does not change lanes. AP is better than that. I love the fact that I can use AP on any road with lines. I'm very happy Tesla doesn't use eye...

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    What did you think you were getting? I did my research and asked around and am extremely happy with FSD. It is as I expected. A futuristic product light-years ahead of the competition. You should sell your car if you are not happy with it. Do your research next time.

    Nice job! I am seriously jealous. Did you have to buy two Tesla's for the second one? I look forward to owning zero ICE vehicles one day.

    Blog Tesla’s Full Self Driving Option to Receive $1,000 Price Increase

    Ok, I see your points. Although I look forward to L5 self driving, I agree it will be extremely difficult to achieve 100% . Even Waymo is currently using it but only in pristine selected areas with a remote backup driver for problems. Construction areas are extremely difficult. And what...

    I got the same one but decided to leave it pristine in package since I have many of these for eyeglasses

    Blog Tesla’s Full Self Driving Option to Receive $1,000 Price Increase

    I thought the same thing until I read an article on the new approach Tesla is using to teaching neural nets on FSD. Basically large amounts of data are used with human examples of driving in various situations. Apparently Billions of miles of data are sorted to get enough examples of rare...

    Boring Company

    Just watched recent Elon presentation on Boring Company. I'm actually most interested in use for cars which wasn't discussed much. I like the concept of self driving cars navigating between white lines. Top speeds would probably be less than 100mph? Adding a tail wind artificially would of...

    Blog Tesla’s Full Self Driving Option to Receive $1,000 Price Increase

    Purchased a Model X with FSD two months ago. Excellent investment!! Highly recommended. Looking forward to city driving whenever Tesla engineers deem it ready. Awesome job delivering the highest technology in the industry!! Tx. I use FSD all the time and feel safer than when I used to drive...

    Tesla Cleaning Products

    The manual says not to use any liquid on the screen. I didn't think this would work very well, but just an eyeglass cloth works great. Just water and microfiber cloth on seats and dash have been all I've needed so far.

    Predictions - "Automatic driving on city streets."

    I already use AP on almost all roads with a yellow line. I did have trouble with a few intersections in the past but I continue to see improvements in just the last month and rarely take over even in curved intersections. Love it! AP and NoA are driver assist devices. Even as they rapidly...

    TeslaFi - Sleep Pattern

    I'm not sure if mine didn't always do the same thing. Was trying a lot of apps last month and rarely slept. About two weeks ago I reset my password and only use TeslaFi now. Sleeps one hour regular naps now then wakes for about 30 minutes. Most of the awake intervals have no vampire drain so...

    I've never needed more than just water on my white seats. They clean up so easily so far.

    Extreme Vampire Drain

    Don't forget to make sure that your FOBs are well out of range. I use TeslaFi because I love all the data and I can see how much my Tesla is sleeping and Vampire drain. GL!

    Tesla Cleaning Products

    I prefer to use plain water on the interior. I was surprised that a soft eyeglass wipe with no cleaner works very well on screen. I use professional type window washer and squeegee on all exterior glass with car wash soap. I really like how well this works. I keep a small spray bottle with...

    Poll: For those with Zero degradation, what level do you set your charge limit?

    I have a Model X with 9300 miles. Just charged to 100% today with 325.4 mi range out of 325 mi. I generally charge to 70% except for trips. If I can reach my destination without SC then I charge to whatever is necessary to get there. I want to save my 300 SCs for longer trips as much as...

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    Interesting, thanks. It appears it is taking Tesla longer to get there than they thought. Of course even Waymo is having a hard time with self driving. I do understand why some people might be disappointed though. I am actually impressed with how fast this is happening and how much progress...

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    FSD will continue to have new features and improvements, but one important aspect that it is already extremely good at is staying in a lane. I look around while using FSD and see human drivers swerving all over their lanes and out of them. Not just occasionally but all the time. You are right...

    I didn't know. What is different?

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    I tried FSD and asked about it and researched it before I gratefully purchased it with all future upgrades. I can understand how some people are annoyed at it being called FSD, but would anyone purchase it based just on the name?

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    Clearly not for you. Don't use it. I personally love Tesla FSD. It is awesome.

    Poll: Is FSD a complete crock?

    I think this poll is a biased crock. Yes Tesla releases incremental changes to FSD with the goal of eventually reaching level 3. For those of you who will only be happy when we reach level 3 with no risk of accidents, that will never happen. The goal is to continually improve safety beyond...

    Optimum Charging/Use Scenario

    I must say that I am not on board with the idea that OCCASIONAL deep discharging is bad for my battery life. There is a tweet from Elon saying that going to 5% or less is not a problem. More importantly there are many people claiming that deep discharging is bad without any data. Although I...

    Any V10 feature exclusive to FSD?

    I'm not certain, but I believe you have hardware version 2.5 or 2.0 (H2.5 or H2.0). Anyone who has these and purchased FSD will get upgrade to H3.0 which is many times faster. It is not clear when this will happen.

    Parking with Smart Summon

    Of course it's not for parking yet! But that doesn't mean parking is not possible. Just curious if others are trying to park with it too.

    Parking with Smart Summon

    Smart Summon is mostly unnecessary but AWESOME! I find the Go to Target feature just as fun. Has anyone else used it to park their car in a lot? Here is some of what I have learned so far: If there are spaces where no cars are parked you can send it there since the final direction it will face...

    Smart Summon

    Smart Summon has worked very well for me. A lot might also be in expectations. I wouldn't expect it to work in your driveway. At Target and Meijer it is very good. I also use it where the lane is wide because I know it may stop somewhat perpendicular to traffic. It's so cool and gets great...

    Tesla V10 software update rollout: post here if you are still waiting

    I think I will be saying years down the road, "I remember where I was when I first heard that Tesla v10 was released." Tesla is so much more than the best car I've ever owned! Tried Smart Summon for first time in a Marina in Michigan. A guy nearby looked up from his phone laughing and said...

    What's the most surprising thing you've found once you got your Tesla?

    Air resistance is a type of friction, look up fluid friction. I did it in my MX. What makes it so hard to shift ME into neutral?

    What's the most surprising thing you've found once you got your Tesla?

    I have only done it for fun, but I suspect you could set some records using neutral intermittently. I believe regenerative braking returns less than 70% of energy back to wheels because of inefficiencies in even the best systems. When you coast, you eliminate all these inefficiencies and only...

    What's the most surprising thing you've found once you got your Tesla?

    Too numerous to count. I've never been remotely as excited about any car. To add a few to this thread; I had no idea how safe Tesla's are. Big plus. Next time you are going above 40 with no traffic, flip into neutral and be amazed how your Tesla coasts and coasts forever. Didn't know the...

    Actually, I took delivery Aug 16 and Enhanced Summon didn't show up on the website until about two weeks later.

    100% charge vs. Supercharge?

    Very annoying when people ask good questions and are told to "Chill," "Breath easy," and "Stop worrying and just enjoy your car." Some of us truly enjoy knowing how to best take care of our Teslas. If you don't care that much about how to take the best care of things, go enjoy a cigarette and...

    Free unlimited supercharging vs (paying for) installing charger at home...

    I just ordered an X and ordered a wall charger. After receiving it FUSC came back, so I am making the same decision as you. Here are some additional thoughts that nobody seems to mention: - I like to save money. If I drive 15,000 / yr, home electricity will cost about $700/yr at $0.15/kWh...
