    Supercharger - Gretna, LA

    drove by again late last week, no indication of anything. Did not even see the previous survey markers anymore. Pretty solid to say nothing has been done at this location yet.

    Supercharger - Gretna, LA

    Drove by Thursday, no construction yet. There were a few survey markers on that side of the property, but honestly its kind of a terrible location for a charger. Chargers need to be located on the other side of the parking lot where there is more visibility. The tree on the southeast part of the...

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    Yes, the traffic situation there is an absolute disaster. Additionally, everyone wants to go out that entrance they come in, directly next to the Tesla chargers. Folks turning left have to wait for the cars coming inbound as well a the cars departing the exit at the other end of the property...

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    Charged yesterday. I've changed my mind. Charger is located in a terrible spot -- everyone is entering the parking lot there, traffic is absolutely nuts when busy. Expect ICE cars to park in the spots because they'll be entering the very busy, very full parking lot and those chargers will look...

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    From previous experience, there is always a crazy line of cars for the gas pumps, to the point that they've got barricades up in the parking lot to direct traffic. I'm not sure if this is the case for this specific instance, however unless these charging stalls are located incredibly far away...

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    these chargers will be great -- no more sitting for 30 min at Crestview or D'iberville for that long segment. I wonder if this charger to New Orleans will be a realistic leg...

    massive memory leak leading to MCU crashing while driving, random autopilot disconnects

    I just submitted a service request because its been getting bad again, with lots of popping / skipping in the audio no matter the source. I'll try yanking the USB drive out for awhile and see what happens. I too have a camera-rated high end flash card in there.

    FPL Advertisement about EV charging

    That sounds useful, what are you using to do that?

    Supercharger - Robertsdale, AL

    That charger is absolutely terrible. Always seems to have multiple broken chargers and its in a dead mall parking lot. Way, way too far off of I-10 as well.

    Supercharger - New Orleans, LA

    with the recent crime wave of carjackings and vandalism, is this really a good spot?

    massive memory leak leading to MCU crashing while driving, random autopilot disconnects

    Plenty of long drives prior to this with no issues. This was the first long drive with V11. Also noticed the time didn't update when I crossed into a new time zone. Looked all through the menus and couldn't find anything except to change it from 12hr to 24hr time. Just had to deal with the...

    massive memory leak leading to MCU crashing while driving, random autopilot disconnects

    Did a 9.5 hour drive yesterday and approximately 8 hours in the screen started getting very, very slow. Turn signals started to lag or occasionally not work at all. Auto pilot completely disconnected without warning multiple times. Clicking anything on the screen was an incredibly slow...

    Supercharger - St Augustine, FL - Inman Road

    Drove by today. Looks pretty much complete, superchargers are wrapped in plastic. They're behind the Wawa that isn't quite complete yet. I'd expect these will stay offline until the Wawa is completed. There is a Chic-Fil-A right next door so between that and Wawa it should make for a pretty...

    Enforcement of no parking to block the Superchargers.

    think of it this way -- These are normal parking spots, with a limit of 30 minutes. They just happen to have Tesla superchargers at them. When they put up signs that say EV charging only, then the law will apply. Crazy to me as to why a property owner go through the trouble of getting Tesla...

    SuperCharger - Metairie, LA

    is the cable long enough so that someone could just park behind him and plug in? you'd block his car, but that is kind of a feature at that point...

    Enforcement of no parking to block the Superchargers.

    That'd apply if the spot was Tesla charging only, but since it specifically allows 30 minute general parking, that wouldn't apply.

    Model 3 new USB C center console data hub from model Y?

    19 pages in, and I'll go ahead and mirror the comments above -- I did the front and rear upgrade a few months ago, and honestly the front is not worth it at all. I have no use for the USB-C inside the console and really I'd rather have the old school USB there so I could connect my xbox...

    Off-peak Hours confusion…

    so it previously treated Friday like a weekday, so if you plugged in during the day it wouldn't charge. Then at about midnight it'd start charging for the "weekend". Now on Friday it charges immediately. Monday through Thursday it seems to act fine.

    Off-peak Hours confusion…

    Well that is annoying, so it SHOULD be working, just isn't. And it definitely preconditions the cabin, so its not like the car is ignoring the setting or it isn't set correctly, it just doesn't seem to impact charging. If I set the off peak charging times it abides by those rules (ie...

    Off-peak Hours confusion…

    I wish this was the case, but unfortunately not. TeslaMate shows it charge all the way to what I've set as the max. The functionality seems straight up broken.

    departure time charging broken in latest update

    I set my departure time to 830am every weekday, and up until this last update the car would hold off to charge until it'd be finishing just before my departure time. Now the car charges as soon as it is plugged in, despite departure time being set. It'll even precondition the cabin, getting it...

    Off-peak Hours confusion…

    Exactly the same issue. This morning it pre-heated the car just fine to depart at the scheduled time, but it immediately started charging upon plugging in when I got home today. This used to work in previous software revisions, now it appears broken.

    Model 3 new USB C center console data hub from model Y?

    I was seeing the same things, the stock Tesla doesn't seem to do so well charging the iPhone 12 variants especially with a case on the phone. Is it possible to use a USB-C to Micro USB (or whatever plug is on the Jeda/Taptes/whatever) and get the benefits of faster charging? Also, does the...

    Supercharger - Jacksonville, FL - Philips Highway

    Is that really how much Tesla is paying to install these things? $9,000 is for install/labor only or is that also including the hardware?

    Tesla's Paint Protection Film Kit

    Can confirm the lower rectangle pieces aren't a perfect fit for the space they're supposed to go to on the car. I did manage to make mine fall into that groove. It took a lot of heat (I used a hair dryer) and a LOT of patience. Took entirely longer than it should have, but mine stuck and...

    Tesla Paint Protection Film for rear fenders

    I installed the Tesla kit on my white car. Its alright. It seems as though the line in that lower area on your car is somewhat made by hand, as its not straight, or not the same on either side of the car. So the pieces of clear vinyl install slightly differently. I ended up using a LOT of heat...

    UV-A doesn't cause sunburn, UV-B does. Is there any data on UV-B?

    I am DONE with slow charging. Wired USB cables for fast charging.

    do you have a link to a good guide on how to remove the center console?

    Do you leave an untreated area where the wipers reverse direction or do you just go ahead and treat the whole window?

    Rain-X / Aquapel for front wind shield

    To start off with, yes, I've used the search feature. Hit some pretty serious rain lately down here in Florida, much more than the SoCal-rain calibrated Model 3 was designed for. I've legitimately never seen the windshield get so bad, and even on the wiper's fastest setting it seemed like...

    Supercharger - Jacksonville, FL - Chaffee Road

    Everything looks perfect, tried to charge and no joy. Also doesn't show up in the car yet. I suspect they'll be turning it on remotely very, very soon.

    Home charging setup

    Same. Easy install, and the wire is cheap. Don't gotta worry about any of the stuff that the higher power solutions run into. Or just run with a NEMA 6-50, you don't need to run a neutral wire for an electric vehicle. I just don't understand why so many folks recommend the 14-50 for an outlet...

    Wall charge ranging from 2 - 4 mi /hr?

    Its not rocket surgery, just a couple of screws and potentially stripping a little bit of wire if necessary. I'd say more importantly, verify the wire installed in the wall and don't rely on the plug or breaker. White (14 gauge) and you're limited to a 15 amp circuit, but if they were kind...

    Wall charge ranging from 2 - 4 mi /hr?

    Pretty much Make sure the terminals are screwed nice and tight, and don't pinch the plastic wire covering at all or it'll heat up and potentially be a fire hazard over time. The box might have a diagram of how much wire should be exposed prior to insertion into the terminals. You'll notice...

    Wall charge ranging from 2 - 4 mi /hr?

    also worth pointing out that its probably worth picking up a heavy duty outlet rather than using the garbage at the big box stores. my $5 NEMA 6-20 outlet from the orange big box store got pretty damn warm and had a decent amount of voltage drop when charging, replaced with a $30 industrial...

    Model 3 doesnt sleep with new firmware setting that leaves car unlocked while at home

    That helped! Thank you! For anyone finding this thread via a search like I did -- go into TeslaMate options and uncheck "Vehicle must be locked" under Sleep Mode and it'll fix this issue.

    Model 3 doesnt sleep with new firmware setting that leaves car unlocked while at home

    Running 24.6.9 and my car refuses to sleep at home with the doors unlocked, same issues as above. Changed password which from my understanding should lock out any apps out there trying to poll for information, except TeslaMate. Any solutions out there yet other than simply turning this new...

    Different TAPTES Wireless Chargers

    I ran a wire up from my armrest for full power. Charging speed on my iPhone seems to be highly dependent upon placement on the pad for my Gen 2 version. It seems if it is upright it'll charge really, really slow. Putting it on the bottom horizontally will sometimes charge slow and sometimes...
