    Join us if you are upset with the introduction of the D (RHD)

    There are valid points in most of these posts. However, problem is Hong Kong customers are getting cars that will apparently depreciate faster than what we initially have expected, due to the fact that much better models are coming out at marginally higher prices (we're talking about 5% or so...

    Join us if you are upset with the introduction of the D (RHD)

    The depreciation rate for any given car is roughly known or expected by most car buyers prior to commiting to their purchase. However, with Tesla's unusual delivery timing and product update cycle (in HK), their cars appear to be depreciating faster than the owners' original expectation. In...

    6.0 firmware for HK cars

    Very thorough list, DITB. IMO a responsible regional center should put its region's best interest first and foremost. As a long time customer, my impression is that TM HK is far from doing enough for local customers. The whole MS delivery delay was a mess. They totally failed in keeping us...

    Autopilot in Hong Kong?

    I don't know if there's a limit on specific radars, but I used to have an Elgrand that's got a radar based adaptive cruise control. TD has no problem with its radar. The auto lane change part may get problematic as it results in a self driving car. Toyota's self parking system is allowed in HK...

    6.0 firmware for HK cars

    TM Hong Kong saying something not up to them, or that they don't know, or perhaps won't share, is kind of getting old for me :/

    HK: Model X Deposit date - confirmation - Sequence # - expected delivery

    Mark, my Tesla account shows a sequence number like this: Model X RN303xxx #3 I think the 3 is my sequence number. I placed deposit the week the X was announced. Can't remember the date. Mine is for a production car btw.

    Parrot Asteroid SMART 2DIN Head Unit

    Mark, very nice review and installation guide. I'm tempted to try one as well! :rolleyes:

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    Is the account status message very long in length? The OVMS firmware truncates everything after the 170th character.

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    If you are the exploring type and happen to have a little too much time on hand, you can go for a PICKIT2 from fleebay (it's about $20). With that, you can setup the module without involving SMS. You'll also get the added benefit of being able to upgrade to the latest firmware as they come out.

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    There's a box for Promotional Video, and it says "optional". It doesn't seem to be displayed in the Android market though, at least not on the device.

    Looks very nice!

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    You can order it here: V1 OVMS Development Module for Tesla Roadster | Open Vehicle Systems Bear in mind the software/firmware is still in the beta stage. The kit is currently intended for developers. If you want a plug and play product that requires minimal to no technical knowledge, you...

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    In Hong Kong (and Mainland China) there exist some old 2G-only networks. As everybody is moving to 3G/4G, those 2G operators tend to offer some good GPRS data plans. For example, New World Mobility in Hong Kong offers a voice plan with unlimited 2G/GPRS for about US$10/mth. But nothing beats...

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    I consistently use that "feature" (by accident) to wake up my neighbors, at 8am, after I return from my son's kindergarten.

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    Just lowered the Android app's OS requirement to 2.1. Now it should work on 90%+ android devices. To install, just search for "Roadster OVMS" in the Android Market.

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    Yes and like Mark said, PayPal is the easiest. When you're ordering, you are allowed to put a shipping address anywhere in the world.

    iPhone app

    You can expect it in about 48 hours (2 working days), according to Hong Kong Post. But in my experience, a 2 to 5 days delivery time is more typical. Depending on the destination country, the chance of customs examining packages is relatively small (about a 5-10% chance). We didn't include an...

    Felix, thanks for helping on the graphics front. You can simply attach the files to your posts in this thread, we'll put them in the master Github repository and update the apps. Sonny

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    Mine shows different icons (see below) but as I've been relying on built-in resources (drawables), the look of the icon varies between different Android ROMs. I haven't spent much time on polishing things. As the code is now up on Github, please feel free to fork it and make changes :).

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    The latest Android code has been pushed to the Tempworks branch of the Github Repo. For those not interested in compiling, here's a compiled version of it. It's got those new features in the iOS app like TPMS and doors/trunk status display :smile:. MD5 Checksum: OVMS.apk...

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    Fuzzy, frankly without your project and Scott's pioneer work, Mark and I probably wouldn't have gotten into the discussion that started this. I probably won't end up with a Roadster that's got remote monitoring for myself and a set of slick (hopefully) feature to show my friends. And I probably...

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    I did a quick research and short answer is YES. It is definitely doable as an add-on that attaches to the soon-released official OVMS hardware. In terms of wireless, we could also easily add (as add-ons) Bluetooth and Zigbee modules. Apart from this, I'm working on finding a transparent LCD...

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System

    Android App alpha Here comes the OVMS Android app. :smile: Just like Mark's iOS app, even if you don't have the car hardware, you can still get the App and try it with the DEMO car provided. Requirements (for this beta) are: Screen with WVGA (800 x 480) or higher resolution (future...

    Open Vehicle Monitoring System (Expanding Fuzzylogic's RCM v0.3)

    Mark and I have been working on a professional and robust software/hardware platform to facilitate further development on Fuzzylogic's Roadster Charge Monitor. As it's based on Fuzzylogic's RCM project, anyone can make their own hardware. If there is enough interest though, a professionally...

    My 3-day Old Roadster Towed Back to Store

    As far as I understand a controller near the HVAC became faulty, possibly due to moisture. It affected (fried?) another controller near it which controls some aspects of charging and the HVAC. Thus the car refused to charge. It should be fixed by replacing the two controller boxes. The...

    My 3-day Old Roadster Towed Back to Store

    A record might have been broken. My roadster was delivered on Oct 10. Yesterday, when I tried to charge it for the first time, I received a "powertrain problem, service required" error (I believe ID was 278). I tried both 13A spare connector and 32A UMC. I also tried dialing down charging...

    Tesla Production Status Codes (My Tesla)

    Thank you! I look forward to delivery and this forum really helped killing some of the wait time. Mark, yes my advocate is Naomi. To me the experience Tesla offered so far is excellent. Naomi and Kenneth (local staff in HK) are both very friendly, and like 7racer's case, Kenneth also responded...

    Tesla Production Status Codes (My Tesla)

    I'm also situated in Hong Kong :smile: But I do hope the reason for different treatment is due to their business getting busier and busier.

    Tesla Production Status Codes (My Tesla)

    My Roadster has just entered the "Your Roadster Order is Confirmed" (after final testing) stage. However, other than an initial thank-you call from the US right after ordering mentioning a target delivery date range, I have hardly heard from the advocates during the wait, and certainly no e-mail...

    Model S Reservation Tally

    That's surprising for me too. Either they all chose to wait and see or they ordered the Signatures. For the public, the lack of public high speed chargers is a serious problem (HK). If the situation remains, the plug-in Prius will probably sell faster (smaller batt = faster recharge even at low...

    Production/Delivery Status

    Any idea on roughly how many they have already produced or received order for? For the Hong Kong RHD (thus EU VIN?) version, the current custom order VIN I believe is #720. I was told there are only about 3 dozens RHDs left for custom order.

    Digital Energy Monitor for Home Charging Station?

    Thank you everyone! I am going to order the OmniMeter Mark suggested. It's even got a serial port for remote reading :smile:

    Digital Energy Monitor for Home Charging Station?

    @widodh & dpeilow, thank you -- will look into those. That's a nice feature and I wasn't aware of that. But I still want to get a monitor installed to keep track of total energy costs, especially useful when charging multiple EVs (a Model S may be? :rolleyes:).

    Digital Energy Monitor for Home Charging Station?

    My Roadster delivery is still months away so I'm trying to kill time by getting the garage prepared. I'm looking for a simple digital energy monitor to go with Tesla's High Power Wall Connector, so I can tell the exact amount of energy drawn by the car for each charge. It needs to handle at...

    Left Hand Drive VIN # vs Right Hand Drive VIN

    I'm ordering a roadster 2.5 with the adjustable suspension and a few other minor accessories. And I've received a newsletter today about the rally event you mentioned. It's a really short notice and I'm afriad my car won't be delivered that fast.

    Left Hand Drive VIN # vs Right Hand Drive VIN

    That cleared my concerns -- thank you mark and doug. Mark, it's really nice to see you here as I was told there are only 25 roadsters in HK :smile:

    Left Hand Drive VIN # vs Right Hand Drive VIN

    I'm looking to buy a roadster and since I'm in HK I was sent the most recent RHD stock list. What's odd is that the VIN numbers are all between 300 and 800. From what I've read they should have already sold more than 2000 roadsters worldwide. But how come the current stock list's VIN numbers are...
