    Deleting inappropriate Supercharger recommendation from route?

    I like knowing when I'm going to arrive and how much charge I'll have when i get there, especially if I'm on the road.

    Deleting inappropriate Supercharger recommendation from route?

    It's a pain that you can't easily edit SC stops. Sometimes on a trip I'll decide I want to eat lunch at the next stop. Which means I'll peruse the stops and see what the eating options are, AND, lots of times I'll actually prefer a 150 kwh charger so Elon doesn't start texting me after 15...

    Autopilot Utility

    I think you need FSD or Enhanced Autopilot for that.

    100% charge or 90 or 95?

    Also worth noting is the car will tell her to slow down if her speed is going to eat up her battery. It won't--or isn't supposed to, at least--just let her speed her way to zero miles left. It'll tell her to slow down to under 70 or whatever to complete the trip.

    Autopilot Utility

    t's That's the thing, if you're going to use your arm as a dead weight I don't really see much difference. The key is whether you're paying attention or not, not what sort of dead weight you use. Now, I guess you could make the case that using your arm as the dead weight means you can't use...

    Autopilot Utility

    I can only say I'm going to be on task. If anything I feel like it's safer because I can focus on the big picture. I spent 24 years flying airplanes in the Air Force so staying focused isn't an issue. Only you know yourself. If you're going to use it to dork around on your cellphone, you're...

    Replacement Tires for 19" wheels

    I agree; when I get new tires literally all that will matter is sound and 'smoothness'.

    Autopilot Utility

    Well, I finally had a chance to taken another long trip and somehow everything came together to make it work great for me. It was probably just a combination of things just getting better. 1. Maybe the most important one is I learned there's just a little lag from an input that 'counts' to...

    Autopilot Utility

    I keep seeing all these glowing reviews of autopilot and how it reduces fatigue on long trips, and honestly I don't understand it. Maybe there's something I don't understand. For me, I have to keep my hands on the wheel and make some sort of tangible input every ten seconds or so. One problem...

    Finally Joined the Community! - From Wilmington, NC

    I'm moving to Wilmington soon (back to my home after a military career), is there anywhere in Wilmington to get a Tesla serviced, do you have to go to Raleigh, or will they send one of the mobile vans to you? It seems to me at the very least they ought to have some of those mobile vans living...

    Make Backgammon Better?

    I play at the highest level, Super Tesla or something like that and I guess it beats me about 60-40. But I have to say it DOES seem like it gets dice rolls in its favor a lot. In some ways I don't like playing against it because it makes me too conservative; I'm afraid to even leave a fly shot...

    Safety Score not showing up in app? It could be this.

    Thanks! I thought I had read that they were going to make the score available to everybody, but maybe I'm misremembering or that just hasn't happened yet.

    Safety Score not showing up in app? It could be this.

    This is still not clear to me. Do you have to purchase FSD to see your safety score?

    Red Dot on Tesla App Icon

    None of this has solved the mystery for me. I've read notifications both in the car and on the phone, and I have the latest version of the app, and I've opened it, but I still have the red dot. I think whatever it is I'm just going to have to live with it.

    Red Dot on Tesla App Icon

    I can't break the code on what the red dot on my Tesla app icon on my phone is. I'm not talking about in the car, the dot that means you have sentry video; I mean on the Tesla icon on my phone. It may still mean something about sentry video, but I'm not sure. At first I thought it might mean...

    I test drove Hyundai Ioniq 5 SEL RWD (short review)

    Or just sell a bunch of stocks with capital gains and immediately buy them back. But the bottom line is the credit is limited to your total tax liability--whatever you owe in federal taxes for the year and it does not carry over. Don't confuse that with what you pay--or get back--when you file...

    Tidal help

    Exact same issue for me, also using a free version. I wonder if I did a trial, got it to connect, if once the account was linked it would continue to work even if I went back to the free account?

    Tidal and in car audio with 2021.40.x

    I'm totally confused by Tidal. First, does it stream via premium connectivity, or do you have to download music, or do you have to log in via your phone, tether it via USB, and control it over your phone? If the last two are the answers then my inability to log in in my Tesla is N/A, I'll just...

    Any way to enable Sentry Mode without flashing lights?

    I parked in a tight one-car garage the the lights kept flashing periodically. Does sentry mode ALWAYS flash the lights, or was it constantly detecting 'incidents' since there was only about 18 inch clearance around the car? If I'm parked in the back row of a parking lot the last thing I want...

    Model Y Suspension and Ride Comfort Options

    So to simplify all that for a tire idiot, basically a 29' tire would give an extra half inch or whatever sidewall and therefore should be a more comfortable ride? And them maybe take out a few PSI and that's probably the best you can do? Does width matter? Would you want the widest 29' tire...

    Model Y Suspension and Ride Comfort Options

    I'm not a car guy at all, can you put 'taller tire, higher aspect ratio' into layman's terms? I have the 19" tires, does taller tire mean with more sidewall? I can't even guess what a higher aspect ratio might mean. What is an example of such a tire? Is there one that folks have used that...

    Multiple phone keys on multiple cars

    I got that far and then I didn't know what to do--have her log in using my name and PW, or create or own? I finally just took her phone to the car and did it that way, but she comes up as me. The difference between a key and an account and a driver and a profile is fuzzy to me.

    Multiple phone keys on multiple cars

    I have a similar question, but it's easier. Just picked up my tesla, have my phone set up as a key, and now I want to set my wife up. I've downloaded the app on her phone, but I'm not sure how to log into it. Do I use my email and password on her phone, or do I use something different for her...

    Also just a note, pleasantly surprised at what the car is telling me is my charging rate from a regular 110v wall outlet--4 to 5 mph. I could live with that if I had to, but luckily I don't.
  28. Wigan

    Current Delivery Times

    That's what I would do too, but there is some flexibility there. Even overnight with just the 120V charger would get over half his commute back.

    I'm buying a new house in a few months and when I put in my charging there I'm going to try to find a way to place it so it can handle either car. But worst case one car would be getting 25 mph and the other 4/5 from a normal plug. The other car is a PHEV with 45 mile range so it's no big deal...

    So during the week he's going to drive 500 miles so somehow, someway he needs 20 hours on the charger during the week. In general terms that doesn't sound too difficult but of course I don't know all the other details. If he starts the week with 300 miles he really only needs about 10 hours to...

    Maybe if you drive 150 miles a day on each EV you need a beefier system, but as I said I think for 99.17% of owners a simple 14-50 is going to be fine. Including two-car households.

    I'm not 100% sure what this question is asking, but to me the expense, if there is one, is getting the right juice to the garage. As long as you can get 220v and about 30 amps you're good. After that it's somewhat moot how you get it from the wall to the car; I just had an electrician put in a...

    Buzz has the Intel chip, btw, I was finally able to find the screen; and the 1000 supercharger miles did show up, so that's good!

    Current Delivery Times

    That does seem crazy. Maybe the answer is if you buy a car and find you need an upgrade contact the SC first to explain and maybe they have a way of smoothing it out ahead of time. In this case it seems like a no-brainer; you got a completely different configuration. I assume if you were...

    Super smoothly, there was nothing to it. I'd already made the payment and signed all the documents so there was nothing there. I had to sign two papers for registration, accepted delivery in the app, and I was ready to go. They made sure the app updated, which it did and got the phone set up...

    Meet Buzz! Named after a Black Vulture (Buzzard) we called Buzz. Buzz is a perfect name for an electric car, and the black and white is just like Buzz himself! I know all anybody cares about is which chip I got, and I honestly don't know. I'm 99% sure it's the Intel because Buzz was built...

    Does Chill Mode negate LR Acceleration Boost?

    This is really no different from the yoke steering wheel and folks wanting progressive responsiveness so they don't have to turn the yoke all the way around two times.

    Does Chill Mode negate LR Acceleration Boost?

    Thanks for the heads up, I'll call him tomorrow.

    Does Chill Mode negate LR Acceleration Boost?

    I'm being super conservative, I currently have an electric car but it's nothing like the Tesla. I'll see how it looks when I get there, but i don't want to leave it, it's two hours to get to the SC.

    Does Chill Mode negate LR Acceleration Boost?

    So it's basically just dampening pedal response like speeding up or slowing down a mouse, which you can do on your own if you want to?

    Does Chill Mode negate LR Acceleration Boost?

    I'm picking my Y up Friday, and I have every intention of using chill mode, creep, and two pedals while I try to get out of the rat's nest that is DC. I don't want the first time I seriously push the pedal to be trying to cut across two slushy lanes of DC traffic to make a left turn. I'll dork...

    2021 EV Tax Credit

    To me that just falls in the part where I said people need to see how no home charging would work within your life patterns.

    2021 EV Tax Credit

    I agree with you, but at the bottom that's really an argument for no credit at all. The reality is demand IS sky high, much higher than our productive capacity. It makes no sense to pour gas on a raging fire--it's literally just a waste of gas. As a Tesla investor, sure, I'd love a credit...

    2021 EV Tax Credit

    And even if you're driving 100 miles a day--and who actually does that other than salesmen or Uber folks, people like that--all that means is once a week you need to hit a supercharger while you're shopping for groceries or having lunch somewhere. So essentially a non-issue most of the time...

    I'm by no means an IT expert, but isn't there a difference between the chip and the MCU? I may be 2,000% wrong, but I thought the MCU was a larger assembly than just the chip. If that's true, and they've also 'future proofed' the entire MCU to be able to handle much more complex things in the...
