    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Awesome research! Thank you. And I’m a big patron of Abstract Ocean, last three Tesla’s I’ve outfitted mostly with their accessories.

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Let me reiterate, what I’m using operates flawlessly. It’s the same device I’ve been using since my 2018 Model 3 for two years (sold and broke even), then used in my 2020 Model Y that I had for a year and sold (for a $2800 profit) just last November, and i’m now using on my spanking new Model Y...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    In case you’ve missed it, this is the hub I’m using without issue (so far)… on my Jan 7 2022 Model Y (Intel Atom processor, not AMD). It’s what I’ve been using on my past 2018 Model 3 and 2020 Model Y cars. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07PH2WXKT/?th=1

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    See the 3 port hub I’m using (post on Jn 12th), I’m having no issues on my new Jan 7th Performance Model Y.

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    I think this might be the issue (hub quality). I got to thinking after making my post last night... I've been using this hub for the last 3 years, music, Dash Cam, and occasionally with a controller for gaming -- all on one port. Never had an issue. If anything today's MCU should be a better...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    I just sold my Oct 2020 Performance Model Y in Nov 2021 (made a $2800 profit), turned around and bought the exact same Model Y again, same color and everything. Took delivery in last week. And in the process the car has about a dozen small improvements added in the last year, center console...

    Solar Roof + Powerwalls | Oregon Roof #3

    Yeah, that was quite the thing! Granted new crews being trained and deployed here in Oregon – and going fast from project to project. Our gutters really weren't too banged up, but I did have a 5 gallon bucket full of materials that I finally had to clean out after they left. They meant to do...

    Solar Roof + Powerwalls | Oregon Roof #3

    House is cocked almost exactly 45deg SE. No PV on the street side. Thank you. The house is cocked almost exactly 45° NE. No PV on the street side.

    Now I can’t edit it. :/

    Solar Roof + Powerwalls | Oregon Roof #3

    Yes, three Powerwalls, two Delta inverters, and the Tesla Solar Gateway. Just need to finish cleaning up the drywall now.

    Solar Roof + Powerwalls | Oregon Roof #3

    It's a 12.3 kWh system, and they estimate it will generate just shy of 11,000 kW annually. Oregon winters (this far north), not much when it's rainy out, but even on cloudy rainy days (unless it's really stormy and dark), I get a little something most days. This week around 3.8kWh / day. The...

    Solar Roof + Powerwalls | Oregon Roof #3

    With weather challenges and the underlayment fully battle tested – including frost, ice, hail, and of course plenty of wind and rain (Oregon after all), we were commissioned December 15th, 2020. The team did a fantastic job. Couldn't be happier!

    Tesla Charging Cable Organizer vs Amazon alternative?

    Maybe an old post now, but this is the answer the OP was looking for... and what he wanted to know. I’m not a fan of the organizers on Amazon, where it forces the handle to stick out and up so far, nearly perpendicular to the wall. Most garages don’t have much room between the car and the wall...

    Torque Steer in the Model Y?

    Okay, after more testing on different roads, I think I can say I *don't* have torque steer. It might have been the previous roads, I'm not sure. That being said, the Model Y does tend to float a bit more on launch than the Model 3 does (which is very planted). None-the-less... Still in love. :)

    Torque Steer in the Model Y?

    Thanks all! As I reflect on the 4 Model Y’s I’ve driven now, all have had this issue, all on different roads, all were Performance Models. The fact that, so far, no one else is detecting this, makes me wonder if I’m loosing my marbles. Yet I know what a stable/rock solid launch should feel...

    Torque Steer in the Model Y?

    Is anyone else noticing strong torque steer in the Model Y? I’ve driven two sales demo units (prior to buying), both performance versions (one a stealth model), and now my newly purchased performance Model Y. All three of them show strong torque steer on hard launch (pulls to the right). My...

    Will black 20” turbines fit over performance calipers?

    I’m looking to order a Performance version Model Y (MSM with white interior), but thinking I might also see if I can find a set of 20” turbines and set up with winter tires (if cheap enough), or go with 20” Martians. Just want to make sure these 20” wheels will clear the performance red...

    Ordered Cybertruck, but it’s not showing up I my account?

    Yep!!! That was it. Good catch. Thank you!!

    Ordered Cybertruck, but it’s not showing up I my account?

    So I ordered the Cybertruck two days after the launch, on the morning of 11/23, and received my Owl, email, and RN. But only now am I realizing others who’ve made their reservations actually also have the truck show up in their account too. Mine does not. I have my 3 listed, along with my Solar...

    What did you name your Tesla?

    Yes! Same here. White and futuristic. Her name is Eve, but Wally says Eeeva.

    Latest on SentryCam with iPhone

    You need the SentryView app! Along with SanDisk iXpand USB stick. The SentryView app allows you to watch all 4 camera angles simultaneously, as well as high speed scrubbing thru them. And then you can delete the 4 files on the fly, or even delete the block or folder too.

    V10 update: 2019.32.12.2 - Release notes same as previous V10 versions

    Got 12.1 last night. Just finished upgrading to 12.2 minutes ago (10/11 1:45pm PDT). Been enjoying all the V10 bells and whistles. FSD installed. Likely tweaks to AP / bug fixes.

    Enhanced Summon coming (Elon tweet 6 Apr, 2019)

    Oh it’s here, they’re real, and they’re fantastic. ;) All the features of 10.1 on 2.5 hardware (and FSD). Thank you Elon! What other car can do these things?!? I just stayed up to watch a two hour movie, via Netflix in full screen, with Tesla’s amazing immersive stereo system... Now I need...

    Auto open/close frunk system

    If I understand correctly, the only downside is, for this to work, is that your Tesla is spoofed Into thinking the frunk is closed all the time. So it sends the signal to open either way, and the onscreen display will always show it closed. The controller box for this kit keeps track of the open...

    Mismatch Roof & Rear Windshield (Service center fault)

    The orange chromatic glass is thought to have better UVA/UVB and IR protection... that Tesla in an effort to pinch pennies later did away with this glass for simpler coatings. General consensus across these forums is the orange/reddish glass is way cooler looking too. My Nov 2018 Model 3 has the...

    Anyone else just get invited to EAP?

    At least I have 28.2? Been on it for nearly 2 weeks. Does that count as EAP? LOL
  33. SCW-Greg

    Anyone else just get invited to EAP?

    Two things: First... how many of us are going to jump on that email?! Second.... EAP... not to be confused with Enhanced Auto Pilot! I have FSD. Waiting. Twiddling thumbs. Jeopardy music in the background. ... But not holding my breath.

    Disappointed with Jeda

    Interesting thread. Sorry for the pain and suffering folks. Jeda has been my benchmark (with horizontal charging) when considering a wireless charger, vs Nomad and the new Tesla version. ... Until yesterday. A friend of mine ordered a wireless charger from Taptes for their Model 3 and...

    S to Porsche Taycan

    Your points are valid. Most of the buyers (I believe) will not be Tesla converts (as Porsche is suggesting), but diehard Porsche owners/fans... who have yet to experience the EV performance advantages (or know the difference with Tesla). And the quality no doubt will be superb. Drag racing...

    Porsche Mission E

    The comparison Porsche doesn’t want you to make is that against the Tesla Model 3 Performance. Same performance specs, similar charging speeds, track rated, longer EPA range(?), amazing handling characteristics, same general body size - only with more interior room particularly the back seat...

    Taycan impact on Model S - a theory I hope is not true

    As you’ve recently read, the new versions of the Model S and X are being tested in the extreme heat of the desert.

    Anyone applied door seals (for noise) per this video / tweet?

    How do you vertically seal at the gap between the front and rear doors... with a D seal?

    Anyone applied door seals (for noise) per this video / tweet?

    I just ordered from Amazon today. Z strip will be here tomorrow, P strips are out of stock until the 18th. I may try a different P shaped strip to see if I can get a solution in sooner.

    Rear View Camera - atleast 5 sec delay in coming on (always black initially)

    Mine as well. Definitely a new thing, but for me, as soon as I put the car in motion (reverse) it comes on.

    Firmware 8.5

    Yeah. I got 8.4 on Monday, not much driving until today, using NoA extensively, which didn’t seem to be much different from 15.5, other than the power boost - no AP settings difference. However, just got the 8.5 update an hour ago after getting home. 8.5. now has the auto lane change option...
