    3rd party app for scheduling of departure

    yeah, I do set departure 15 min late. That helps with the temp. It's pretty consistent so that's ok. But the charging is pretty unpredictable. I do better setting the charging time rather than departure. It would be nice if I could find something actually did the cabin and charge when I...

    3rd party app for scheduling of departure

    Does Tessie control it through app or does it use the Tesla scheduling? The problem I have is that scheduled departure is usually so far in advance that the battery is likely cooled down again. Similar with the pee-condition. I get a notice that my cabin has reached it temperature a...

    how do access more than quick controls?

    yes, you got it. But I'd swear there was a time when you could invoke them. But mayhaps I"m crazy

    how do access more than quick controls?

    If you mean the word 'controls', that brings up the picture of the car with four controls under that ()as well as tapping the image for the trunk and frunk). I'm talking about the controls you can see here under my main screen 4 controls

    how do access more than quick controls?

    Is there a way to access the non-quick controls in the app? I thought you could somehow but just updated the app and I can't figure out how. Seems like obvious need. What I mean by non-quick, I'm referring to all the controls you see when you long press a quick control. Yes I can drag one...

    I didn't have much luck doing that. I still found the cover hard to get off and still bent the clips putting it back on. For $40 I got the...

    What's the best lube for a sticky/squeaky window

    Rear right window squeaks a bit. It doesn't usually bother me but with the cold weather doing its roll/down/up when I open the doors, it is starting to bother me. I guess the best fix is a spray down the channel so what do you think the best (with a straw) lube would be?

    Auto-launching Tesla app on Android

    It's interesting that folks just don't want us turning off our phones and expecting the software to work correctly. Before that argument starts I would argue that the same capability/feature that comes and goes repeatedly is a sign that the software is not working correctly. Yes, probably...

    some stuff can get through do not disturb. Don't really care as it spends the night on a different floor but I was responding to your do not disturb point. The Tesla app does auto start again as reported a few months ago.

    Bike rack mode

    thanks. read through it but I'm too cheap to plunk down $250. I think I paid $20 for the one I have and it works fine. I was looking for a right sized plug/grommet mostly for looks. I think the ungodly one probably does on/.off faster. I just pull it off. To get it on I line it up and push...

    Bike rack mode

    I have the original ungodly spring design but assume the opening is the same for both. Anyone find a plug to 'winterize' it?

    Auto-launching Tesla app on Android

    Do not disturb mode is really do not disturb most of the time mode. But what's the downside? What harm am I doing turning it off at night? I'm guessing that the button has been tested to live through a couple thousand presses. So why not? As for the battery, you don't think a battery that...

    Why my Wh/mi so bad?

    I would lose about the same percentage. My lifetime is 261 wpm so I'm thinking summer is probably around 250. I pay more attention in the winter and although I don't meticulously track it, I believe I run about 300 wpm. The 2015 Outback (30.7 lifetime) was 32 summer and about 26 winter. So...

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    OK. Yes, I'm thinking 'passive' as the dictionary defines the word but if most mean what you say then it sounds like it is 'passive'
  18. spokey

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    I agree that would not be false advertising. I would contend that it is not passive in that case. It is detecting something via the termistor and acting upon that. Yes, it is simple but it is not passive.

    If that is the case then . Equipped with real-time internal temperature monitoring seems like false advertising to me

    CCS - buy now or wait?

    A number of people have said they are passive but that doesn't seem right. At the least they throttle down if they heat up. Maybe they actually do some other stuff. TEMPERATURE MONITORING - Equipped with real-time internal temperature monitoring - At 179 °F the current will be reduced...

    Google only supplied updates for 2 years for my pixel 3. Some of the Samsungs go 3 years. I put norton on when I stopped getting updates. These things are too expensive to toss every 2 / 3 years. I'll take a look at those links. Although I build my own desktops, I'm a little reluctant to...

    He did start slowing a bit but very slowly. Looks similar to my experience. Although they may enforce speeding wherever that is, apparently they don't give a hoot about keeping to the right 😁

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    If I'm on a 45 mph road and hit a school zone (25 mph), using the scroll wheel has almost no impact. It will probably be down to 41/42 by the time it is at the end of the school zone. There is a road near me that I use regularly, It drops from 45 to 35 through about 1/4 residential seciton...

    I think mine started at 10 and is now on 12 (pixel 3). It always worked until the versions referenced above and started again with an app update. I haven't gotten an OS update in over a year.

    Best to charge to 60%?

    then that merely goes back to that earlier comment I'm not even sure I"ll live to see the end of the warranty but my take is a bit different. If it is true that say 50% is better than 90% and you don't need the 90% then 50% wins because it has to be better for the environment due to at...

    Best to charge to 60%?

    Sometime back in the 70s I was in for service at the dealership (not my normal practice). I think it was the '78 Caprice. I asked the service what Chevy had done to so that they could change from a 3,000 mile oil change to (I think) 5,000. Better engine tolerances/spec etc. He said they...

    Best to charge to 60%?

    Assuming the Recurrent | Used Electric Cars Aren't Measured in Miles reports are telling me what I think they are and are in fact accurate I've seen a steady rise in my battery vs others since dropping to 55-60 normally. I do still go up for non-local days like today I"m going out this am and...

    Same thing here. So far I've never taken the UMC on a trip (haven't gone that far or much in to boondocks). I'm thinking about including it when I trek to Denver (youngest expecting 2nd child early next year) although I might not given I have the CCS1 (Korean flavor). I'd go with this combo...

    Help - I don’t accept this car - Tesla won’t take it back

    I call them dealer because from a customer standpoint I see no difference. I understand they are Tesla owned and not independent like say the local Ford dealer but I don't see any practical difference. I went to a place where I could see the cars. I test drove one at that place. I ordered my...

    Help - I don’t accept this car - Tesla won’t take it back

    That is not what we all went through. At least not me. I thoroughly checked out the car before I signed anything and before I wrote the check. I did pick it up at the dealer. Not delivered to my house.

    Has anyone with the old windshield washer system changed to the new one?

    What I want to find out is whether the new one fits my 2020. I believe there may be three versions. I have 2 nozzles. I think they switched to 3 maybe late 2020 or early 2021 and there appears to be an even newer 4 nozzle version that I'm hoping actually works and fits my 2020 and is less...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    I have a couple places where the speed limit changes at a light or stop. You can clearly see the lower speed sign maybe 30 feet or so from the intersection. The car accelerates so fast that it gets up above the new lower limit and 'bings' me. I have that set at 4mph above the limit. That...

    I haven't been through the one posted above since last night's release but the little drop 5mph are still there and maybe worse. That said, the slowing 1/2 mph 20 feet in front of a couple stops around here are a bit better. Maybe .3 will actually the be big one hyped about. And it still...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Every time I go the the 'T' below (blue arrow), FSD slows down even if there are no other cars in sight. There is a stop where indicated but I'm think FSD couldn't even see that. The other day there were no cars so I decided to see what it would do. It got down to 1mph in the middle of the...

    CCS Adapter - ?

    If you saying that the car, deciding it needs to charge, finds an EA and routes you there, yeah that's different. But if you are OK with looking at the app because you want one, then it's a couple taps. Probably 5-6 seconds.

    volatility is the tendency to vaporize. Probably poor word choice for the intended question. presumably we're speaking of Volatility (chemistry) - Wikipedia and not volatility in the stock market.

    Quick Bandit Gen 2 Front License Plate Holder

    I think the implication is that the QB would be bad because of damage. My point is that nothing will save the bumper given the postulation. So having a QB or not is irrelevant to worrying about bumper damage. The grill might be another matter.

    same here although I charge mostly at 55. Just drive less I guess. 11K in 2 years / 2 months. I'll charge for the longer drive. Not always for a storm as I have a whole house generator so I'm less worried.

    Even money says the SC will make up an answer. If you get to the mother ship, they'll say it's a change for security. I gave in. Decided that starting the app myself was easy enough that I would do that rather than lose upcoming features. Forgot this morning. Tapped the icon and by the time...

    Quick Bandit Gen 2 Front License Plate Holder

    I don't see how anything would save the bumper including no license plate. Not sure about the grill. I think you have a better change at the grill surviving than with the snapplate. That is the primary reason I got the QB rather than the snapplate

    It does on my android. Now I haven't actually done the navigation, but if I tap on the pin on the plugshare map to open the details, I see a smaller google map. If I tap on that, it brings up a 'share' menu and the tesla is one of the choices. tap on that and it sends the destination to the...

    Last car I sold privately was my 16 yo 300zx convertible. The guy who bought it did want a mechanic go over. I took it there and don't remember the details (this was 2009) but he did focus on the engine. I know he did compression tests. There is already some of this for EVs. Recurrent Auto...

    It's clearly something tesla did given that I was able to get it back by restoring an old version. Then I lost it again moving from 4.8 to 4.9. I think I restored one more time and got it back. But I've decided to move on as I will want some of the newer app stuff. Don't have it as the FSDb...
