    FSD Money better given to a charity

    It will be "beta" forever, just like the windshield wipers. I'm not suggesting it's not great tech or that Tesla won't achieve their FSD goals. I'm only suggesting Tesla is misusing the words "beta" and "full self driving" as a crutch chasing the almighty dollar - customer be damned. They have...

    Post your autonomous driving predictions for 2023!

    It will be interesting to watch the long haul battle for fully autonomous 18-wheelers between Tesla, Waymo, Kodiak, and Aurora. As far as I can tell, Tesla has the electric option but not autonomous in '24. I'm most familiar with Aurora and am very bullish they will have L4 autonomy...

    Tesla's FSD Camera Upgrades | TMC Podcast Clip

    As I recall (which some rightly call suspect), it depends on the build month. AP 2.5 started in September 2017 - and I believe those had the correct cameras from there going forward. My June '17 MS with AP 2.0 needed the cameras. Plus if your SS app is working it should tell you if the cameras...

    FSD Blows Through Stop Signs

    Good wisdom from @mhan00. In this case it may be a "proximity" thing too. In one of our downtown streets there are 2 stoplights only about 100' apart. The lights are timed so the far light changes first, about 5 seconds apart. In my sample of 1, FSDb came to the near light as it started to...

    You could search here but I recall reports of this being fixed by either rebooting car and/or reinstall Tesla app. FYI if it doesn't show in a day.

    Single stack for AP/EAP?

    I am anticipating some significant regression on highways when single stack is released.
  7. KArnold

    2022.40.4.1 am I screwed out of FSD beta?

    Maybe. Maybe not. Nobody here knows what base version the next FSDb will use and Tesla isn't saying. We can only speculate based on early release versions. The current FSDb to the mass beta test group is, aka 2022.36.20. The latest early release is, aka 2022.40.4.5, only...

    2022.40.4.1 am I screwed out of FSD beta?

    Ok, technically correct. 🤔. Bottom line - don't install a mainstream version higher than whatever the next FSD will be. I'm guessing it will be 2022.40.something, so don't go to 2022.44.something. The newer version may download but don't install it if FSDb is your objective.

    Electrek Article: "Tesla says it is adding radar in its cars next month amid self-driving suite concerns"

    I fully expect hardware for FSD will be made available free of charge to those who purchased it, including legacy vehicles. Period. And Elon has repeatedly said FSD means level 5, robotaxis, not having to touch the wheel, etc. Sounds very clear to me. He would have to do a lot more weaeling to...

    2022.40.4.1 am I screwed out of FSD beta?

    Most likely yes. I've ignored several updates that were buggy and the new ones still get downloaded when available.
  11. KArnold

    Tesla bringing back RADAR?

    See here. I've not seen anything that indicates the Tesla semis are even using FSD. Maybe AP though where radar could be helpful, but no source I have found indicating this either. Anyone seen otherwise? Aurora has working self-driving semis today but they are not electric to my knowledge.
  12. KArnold

    2022.40.4.1 am I screwed out of FSD beta?

    You risk delaying getting FSDb if that is your goal. Just say "no" to updates.
  13. KArnold

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    I assume you have the other FSDb requirements - opted in, 100 AP miles in the last rolling 30-day period, AP3, MCU2. Not sure you need all of these just for the cam retrofit but now that score is irrelevant it's a no-brainer to maintain those parts you can control - opted in & AP miles anyway.
  14. KArnold

    2022.40.4.1 am I screwed out of FSD beta?

    While true, I believe the SS app lets you know if you do not have the proper cameras. No need to call unnecessarily.

    40.X and steering Wheel weight?

    I'm pretty sure a good size group would choose to forgo future updates, at least until more significant updates are available. History shows the normal track could do this for a while. I'm sure not on FSDb, I'd bet. 🤔 Also, a great example of perceived ramifications of installation of car...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    I may have missed a tweet here. I know Elon said FSD was going to "wide release" (aka, no safety score requirement). And I think he did that on Nov 19 saying "Tesla FSD going to wide release now".
  17. KArnold

    I Thought FSD Was Wide Release?

    Within the last 30 days, I believe.

    Phantom Brake Crash?

    That's true. I'd love to hear from anyone who takes that route using FSDb and whether they had any PB incidents. We must have some Bay Bridge users here. If not, likely nothing to see here.

    Phantom Brake Crash?

    https://www.ktvu.com/news/multi-car-crashes-disrupt-thanksgiving-day-travel-on-bay-bridges I'm not trolling but ran across this. I wonder if it could be related to a phantom braking incident. Was hoping maybe locals had additional insight.

    Experience with Tesla Maps

    I generally plan on arriving at the next SC ideally around 10% - haven't been stranded in 65k miles. Took a trip from Ohio to Montana a couple years ago. Much less SC's to choose from in the SD, Wyoming, Montana areas (thank God for Wall Drug SD!). And it can get very windy. I had two...

    Tesla App shows cameras need upgrade on vehicle that has MCU2 and new cameras for FSD Beta?

    Wow. Bet you are glad you didn't go to the SC Lite! 🤔 Mobil did my '17 camera upgrades.
  25. KArnold

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    That really is curious. You would think it's MORE complex to exclude our vehicles running the same AP3, MCU2, and cams as M3/MY. Also sounds intentional, not due to hardware.

    Essential apps?

    Looking for advise on getting the FSD Beta update

    FSD Beta 10.69

    I don't believe there is a 2022.40 or 2022.44 version of FSDb yet. Those appear to be the regular software branch

    New update removed my report mistake button 🙈

    Just speculation of course. It sounds a lot harder to me to find the useful intelligence, especially on safety-related issues, based upon disengagement data. Let's say there are 10k disengagements a day from across the US. And that 99.9% are not safety issues but rather wrong lane, turn signal...

    Bypass Lane Behavior

    As long as nobody is coming towards you in the other direction, no. But crossing a double yellow into potentially oncoming traffic on a 2-lane road certainly would get my full attention.

    All true. But it's no big surprise. Tesla clearly has abandoned their legacy base.

    For those of you suffering from FOMO, @Crew Dragon may have a point. Checked via the car - nothing. Rebooted using the 2-finger salute and checked again - now downloading 2022.36.20, aka Previous was 2022.20.19. Perhaps coincidence and of course YMMV. Your welcome.

    Not necessarily. If you are on 2022.36.6 (same major software level of the latest distribution going to real people - 2022.36.20) - it could arrive soon. Not sure the removal of the SS from the app makes sense, nor being able to request it. But these are probably related. For very foggy...

    Looks like the majority of the changes are related to highway travel. That's interesting with do many city traffic issues yet to be addressed. But they had to go here sometime. Looks like Chuck and the other early release folks need a regular freeway area which could be a bit trickier to demo...

    Wiki FSD’s Earliest Adopters Still Waiting

    Hmmmm, I wonder if the "single stack" version of FSD means those with EAP need the new cams now too? For those '16 and '17 MS/MX models.

    Safety Score gone from my app!?

    Plus it only cares about what you've driven in the last 30 days. If cameras are good, you just need 100 AP miles with a good score in a rolling 30-day period, which can be checked in the app - that's easily done in a day. Assuming of course Tesla is willing to push out new folks, which it...

    Add a camera in the footwell, steering wheel, and what is on center display to be used in accidents only?

    Lousy resolution and not many choices (best is first few seconds) but I don't see any clear image of brake lights coming on either. Would love to see other cams showing more of the rear of the vehicle. I'd hope Tesla has the wrecked vehicle and can do some additional forensics on that specific...

    I hope it's not true. Took me 8 months to get these and many others continue to wait. Us forgotten legacy owners would take years, if ever if we are competing with the rest of the Tesla world.
