    Supercharger - Leeds, AL

    That was Tesla's original solution in the EU but it's far from optimal for different charge port locations on various EV's. Until a charge port placement location is standardized I think the charge port placement necessitates a significantly longer charge cable to reach every EV charge port...

    Supercharger - Leeds, AL

    Maybe somebody conveniently close can take look to see the construction progress and post a few photos. I'm in north Alabama (Hazel Green) and when we next take a trip to the Gulf I am planning this detour for a mid trip charge.

    FSD Beta & Hands On The Wheel

    Please do not use these types of unauthorized devices designed to fool the Tesla Autopilot or FSD Beta software sensory input expectations. Plainly stated, it is irresponsible and dangerous to both the driver and other people. This point is not arguable. Tesla warns the driver each and every...

    FSD Beta & Hands On The Wheel

    Yes the driver is still prompted but the prompting comes from the software and not the steering wheel. The screen starts to pulse blue in the upper left and honestly it's a little hard to notice at first but it becomes more noticeable as the timer approaches a FSD Beta disconnect by the system...

    I sure hope the wheel stops are not on backorder :confused: so be careful backing in.

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    That is precisely the conclusion I arrived at after posting. It would be interesting to see the machine that does the pulling.

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    Wow nice catch. Ok, now I'm wondering all sorts of things 😆 but I won't bother you with my curiosity questions. Thanks for sharing.

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    I'm wondering why I don't see the usual wiring and conduit protruding from the transformer pad.
  9. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    Yes! That sure looks like the correct Supercharger equipment. I wonder how long it'll take? I'll take the first guess with it being operational by July 27, 2022.

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    I can only see what this traffic situation is about using Google Maps which to be honest is pretty good. The Bucee's employee parking lot on the other side of the road looks like it could evolve into another larger Supercharger location.
  11. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Issaquah, WA - Gilman Village

    Are the coordinates 47.540084, -122.041717 that are attached to this location correct? I does not look like a normal Tesla Supercharging location looking at it in Google Maps Street View.

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    The car has V11.0 (2022.4.5.3 6679a1b92604) installed 2-24-2022. My phone Tesla app has 4.6.0-885 - caf6e647f installed this morning 2-26-2022.

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    Thanks for that info as well as all the preceding info Dewg. I am now at Safety Score 99 and officially in the FSD-Beta queue with no expectations about when I'll get the FSD-Beta software update. Earlier today I installed a software update after reaching a 30 day Safety Score of 99 yesterday...

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    I apologize in advance if this has already been answered but does the operator need to "do" something like pressing a button accepting admittance into the FSD-Beta? Does additional software need to be downloaded? I already know about requesting to participate in the FSD-Beta program (I have)...

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    Is there anybody close enough to take pictures of the progress? I understand the Buc-ee's is relatively new. There sure appears to be plenty of space for 12 charging stalls and possibly more if usage time warrants it.
  16. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    Huntsville has lots of young upwardly mobile professional families that choose to live in apartments with no possibility of L2 overnight charging. This is definitely a segment of the demographic Tesla is aiming to sell EV's to.

    Tesla Winds and Elevation Web Browser App

    Thanks for the few years of use. Your programming efforts were not in vain. Just in case Tesla decides to restore the browser geolocation API, will this resource still be available? I don't road trip so much anymore but I want to thank you for the effort because it really reduced range anxiety...

    Tesla Winds and Elevation Web Browser App

    Yeah I just went through the steps to get a new API Key from openweathermap.org and recreated the saved teslawinds URL in my Tesla. I don't get any errors but there is no data coming through to the car.

    SLS - On the Scent of Inevitable Capitulation

    To your point EVCollies I also detect the beginning of a paradigm shift away from governmental contracted profit to actual commercial profit because of SpaceX's first principles approach that throwing away the first stage of any orbital class rocket was always an unsustainable and unprofitable...

    Supercharger - New Jersey Turnpike Rest Areas - Molly Pitcher & Joyce Kilmer

    Are you saying the Superchargers are still operational because if you are then that is news-worthy.

    FSD Beta & Hands On The Wheel

    Thanks for trying to put into words what you are going through tivoboy. Your description sounds exactly like what I am expecting when I get Tesla's invite to join. I wonder what it is about that particular stretch of road that is causing the improper FSD-Beta response? We may never know but it...

    FSD Beta & Hands On The Wheel

    I have found that I have managed to increase my peripheral vision awareness a lot since driving with Autopilot although I readily admit I am not at all familiar with the FSD visual clues prior to disconnect. I have noticed in FSD YouTube videos the driver simply rotating up or down the right...

    FSD Beta & Hands On The Wheel

    I'm at a disadvantage because I don't yet have FSD. The videos of FSD driving I've viewed show drivers pressing a button to specifically send a flag back to Tesla about a problem with FSD's handling of a driving situation. Have you done this tivoboy? I'm pretty sure it's unrealistic to expect...

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    I didn't see any activity or equipment when I drove through the area Wednesday the 27th.

    Supercharger - Mountain Brook, AL

    At least it's not like the tight, nose first pull-in stalls at the SC in Brentwood, TN. Those are a true pain in the neck to use.

    Locked-up destination charger

    Without the benefit of living in the area it seems to me the hotel is using a lock to restrict charging access to paying guests.

    FSD Beta - Geographic Differences?

    There will be a lot of innovation on the path to achieving autonomous vehicles. There will be successes and failures along the way. If we could erase all of the present day transportation infrastructure we would very likely not build it back the same way due to technological progress which is...

    FSD Beta - Geographic Differences?

    This is the answer Tesla has not publicly answered in detail. I suspect the answer is quite complicated, nuanced and evolving.
  29. Ticobird

    FSD Beta - Geographic Differences?

    When I as a human drive the vehicle I do not need HD maps. I think this is the root of our disagreement.
  30. Ticobird

    FSD Beta & Hands On The Wheel

    Your point is valid. In my opinion your steering concerns will be resolved by adjusting your personal FSD-Beta driving skill set to account for the HotW requirements. The HotW requirement is not a 100% of the time requirement. As such, you will find over time you will develop an unconscious...
  31. Ticobird

    FSD Beta - Geographic Differences?

    You haven't fully thought out the implementation of FSD. Please adjust your thinking along the lines of what human drivers do in order to perform the act of piloting a vehicle. What decisions do human drivers go through to pilot a vehicle along an unfamiliar road. They do not reference a HD map...

    Gearheads Can Still Enjoy the Tesla Model 3

    I agree with the majority of Gene's essay although I land closer to Tim "The Toolman" Taylor of Home Improvement that you can't have too much power -- argh, argh, argh. My 3rd quarter production 2018 M3P is unquestionably the best driving vehicle I've owned since I started driving in 1968. I...

    Supercharger - Huntsville, AL

    Thanks for finding this Supercharger location and including the attachment covering the details of the agreement. This Tesla Supercharger location will prove to be very popular and will drive (pun intended) Huntsville consumers decision's to purchase a Tesla especially if they live in an...

    Anyone else can't get Safety Score to show up in the app?

    Yeah I'm not going to do that. I'll wait and drive with a little less enthusiasm until it shows up normally. I've waited 3 years so another few days won't affect my enjoyment whatsoever. lol each morning is like anticipation central until I check the version and go about my day.

    Supercharger - Round Rock, TX

    I do not live in the Austin area but unless you are new to Tesla Supercharging you should peruse the supercharge.info website in depth to discover exactly how much love Tesla is bestowing on the Austin area. You should also know that this is not the final count for your area. I envision 2022...

    Supercharger - Round Rock, TX

    I have zero doubt Tesla will expand the Supercharger network as fast and as logically as they can manage. It is without a doubt an enormous endeavor but Tesla doesn't shy away from difficult rather they embrace difficult endeavors and use them to differentiate themselves from their competition.
  37. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Round Rock, TX

    This is not that. There are two main reasons for locating a DC Fast Charging location. Fill in long distance stretches - which is what you are referring to DC Fast Charging in urban settings for those unable to charge at home at night because they live in apartments or such Just taking a look...

    Supercharger - Montgomery, AL

    It's okay to be wrong and it's even better when we don't mind admitting it. I nicely thought to myself about your reply that you may have mistakenly replied to the wrong thread.
  39. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Asheville, NC

    IMO, there are still some Tesla specific behaviors and norms that Tesla drivers still need to develop. Many of these behavioral adaptations will be applicable to all EV charging. Try not to overthink your choice. Presently at this point in time I think the rule of FCFS (first come first served)...

    Supercharger - Cheektowaga, NY

    Are you NOA to the Supercharger because this is what causes the vehicle to prime the battery temperature for a maximum charge rate?
  41. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Montgomery, AL

    The location of this Supercharger seems to be placed for east west traffic.

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    No to the second question and now I recall I have not come upon a red light while on TACC or Autosteer since the software update. I went out to the garage and checked and am pleased to report all of my strange observations were because of a glitch (as alluded to by Alset Srotom in #52) with the...
  43. Ticobird

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    My observation about my software update didn't involve the car stopping for a green light without acknowledgement but rather it just proceeds through it unacknowledged by the driver. I suppose you could best describe it as FSD Beta lite without the City Streets NOA aspect. We might be on the...
  44. Ticobird

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    I know it's not what you meant but I do have a Mobile Service tech coming out the day after tomorrow to replace my Charge Port assembly. I will ask him although he most likely won't know anything about it. He might have another software update for me. What do you think people? If he has...
  45. Ticobird

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    At least I satisfied my own curiosity as to the consistent nature of the glitch. I'm retired from a career in computer support and I'll tell you that I rarely saw a consistent misbehavior of software from one computer platform to another. AAMOF I can't recall any specifically. Furthermore...

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    Okay, here's the latest. I have V10.2 (2021.4.15.12 c65e2c0ab1ff) I just got back after trying to duplicate (or not) my previously described behavior. I have unequivocally verified my previous observation and more. On Autopilot the vehicle blows through green lights without requiring any...

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    I'm curious, do you have HW3? Also, have you purchased FSD Beta?
  48. Ticobird

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    I don't know what to say except that I found it weird and unusual. I'll go out again tomorrow, try replicating it under the same circumstances at the same traffic signal and report back.
  49. Ticobird

    Supercharger - Cheektowaga, NY

    Did you set the Supercharger as your destination? It's my understanding doing that causes the Tesla to begin preconditioning the battery temperature with enough time to be able to accept the fastest charge rate when you plug it in. I don't recall exactly what the optimum battery temperature...
  50. Ticobird

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    No, there was nobody ahead of or alongside. I did a double take when it happened because it felt so weird to just blow through the traffic signal albeit green. Something else weird happened just before that. As I approached a different changing traffic light I tried activating AP, which I...
