    Sentry Mode on V2.0 Hardware?

    FYI, here's a great article which outlines the AP H/W evolution differences and capabilities: Autopilot, Processors and Hardware – MCU & HW Demystified | TeslaTap Long story short, the processor upgrades made from AP 2.0 to AP 2.5 enabled Dashcam and Sentry mode features with local file saving...

    Thanks...blah :-(

    Sentry Mode on V2.0 Hardware?

    Thanks. I've heard that MCU1 can run Sentry Mode (only) but not DashCam because it does not require the hardware to perform multi-tasking e.g. processing lane monitoring, traffic awareness and dashcam duties while the vehicle is in motion. Sentry mode is only enabled when in park so the MCU1...

    Sentry Mode on V2.0 Hardware

    If you purchase FSD online, or pre-purchased it when you bought the car, only then would you be eligible to be upgraded to the latest MCU hardware. This new hardware will support Sentry, Dashcam & FSD. I think you can make an appointment to have this done at a service center anytime but FSD...

    Sentry Mode on V2.0 Hardware

    Yeah, that's what I figured. Just thought I'd keep this thread open waiting on someone to confirm hopefully sometime in the future ;-)

    Sentry Mode on V2.0 Hardware?

    Curious as to whether anyone has gotten Sentry Mode to work, beyond just writing empty files to the thumb drive, on their V2.0 hardware cars yet. If so, what software version are you running?

    Sentry Mode on V2.0 Hardware

    Curious as to whether anyone knows if / when Sentry Mode will start working on AP 2.0 cars? My 2017 MX AP 2.0 running 2019.16.2 software only writes empty files to the thumb drive currently (known behavior). Was wondering if anyone out there with AP 2.0 hardware has gotten Sentry Mode to work...

    Does anyone know if/when Sentry Mode will start working on AP 2.0 cars? My 2017 MX AP 2.0 running 2019.16.2 software only writes empty files to the thumb drive currently (previously reported & known behavior).

    Dolby Surround to Immersive Sound

    Has anyone else noticed that the Immersive Sound setting is not remembered between drives? I'll have it set to HIGH but after leaving the car parked for any significant length of time (e.g. greater than a few hours) the setting reverts to MEDIUM. I have a 2017 MX w/Premium Sound on the latest...

    Model S/X: Spare Parts Availability Issues

    Yup, but the SC has already agreed to pay for these parts. My point is I shouldn't be having to go to the secondary market on the internet for OEM parts for a vehicle that is only a year old, not to mention the high-end cost of the vehicle itself. I used to work in the automotive parts industry...

    Model S/X: Spare Parts Availability Issues

    I have a 2017 MX and I have been waiting three weeks now for replacement plastic rear wheel fender flare moldings that surround the wheel openings. When my Mt Kisco, NY SC placed the order they originally quoted me no more than a few days to get these parts but as each week passed their story...

    SunTek Carbon XP Tinting - Anyone have it?

    It sounds like you're commenting on [poor] installation and not the product itself (?) Peeling and/or bubbling is usually a factor of an inexperienced installer or improper installation prep. I'm not saying SunTek makes the best tint but it isn't a bad product for the money.

    Auto Headlight ON/OFF High Sensitivity

    AndrewKet, my Model X is an AP2 car (purchase date 6/2017) but my lights do not stay on all the time, as others have complained about here. My lights are simply overly sensitive either late in the afternoon or in the shade on even the sunniest of days.

    Auto Headlight ON/OFF High Sensitivity

    Well it's been 2 months now and numerous OTA updates (Current Version: 2017.46...) and I haven't really noticed much of a difference, so if this is software related they haven't addressed it yet. BuI I still maintain it's a hardware problem because others are complaining about their lights not...

    Auto Headlight ON/OFF High Sensitivity

    I'd venture a guess that Tesla's light sensor supplier has a manufacturing problem and a small percentage of their units are defective. So even though all vehicles are software calibrated to the same sensitivity rates these units are causing headlights to come on prematurely or stay on all the time.

    Auto Headlight ON/OFF High Sensitivity

    Vin#...50344 - Software Version# 2017.34.2448cfc ISSUE: Auto headlights will come on with even the slightest amount of intermittent shade on very sunny days or when the sun is lower in the sky later in the afternoon. Has anyone else experienced this issue of the headlight sensor being overly...

    Tire-to-tire width comparison between 20 inch and 22 inch wheels

    Guys - the width between the outer sidewalls from left to right tires should be no different between the 20" and 22" factory rims. This is because the offset on the 22" rims is different and therefore compensates by positioning the tire & rim more inward into the wheel wells. This allows you...

    Model S P100D beats 11 supercars in Motor Trend "World's Greatest Drag Race"

    Nothing a revamp of the original go-cart-like Tesla Roadster couldn't address. The Porsche 918 Spyder has already proven that concept half way with hybrid tech. Next step, full EV Porsches, BMW M & MB AMG cars...stay tuned Mr. Nostalgia ;-)

    Model S P100D beats 11 supercars in Motor Trend "World's Greatest Drag Race"

    ICEs have pretty much reached their engineering limit...more powerful electric motors (e.g. even higher RPM & amperage ranges) still have a ways to go. Audi, BMW, MB, Porche and many of the other high volume luxury car makers already know this and have strategic plans to move their line-ups to...

    Confused on Model S vs 3 Discussions

    IMO, the market segment for each vehicle can be summed up as such: Model 3 - Aimed at younger buyers who value affordability, design simplicity, people moving capacity & range in a compact outside package. Model S - Older, more affluent buyers who like a larger sport touring sedan with ample...

    [Spoiler Alert + Mild Speculation] Tesla has created a monster!

    Could we be missing one key aspect in this conversation, besides just the marketing aspect...the idea of a manufacturer built-in "reserve"? ICE manufacturers routinely under-publish their true gasoline tank capacities to allow for a hidden-to-the-driver mileage "reserve" for emergency use. This...

    TOPFIT Customized Dash Cam - My Review/Videos/Photos

    I have a DDPai Mini dashcam with parking mode that switches automatically to 1 minute / frame (fast motion) after 10 mins. of not sensing car motion. It automatically switches back to a normal recording rate if the G-Sensor detects anything. This saves SD card space considerably and conserves...

    TOPFIT Customized Dash Cam - My Review/Videos/Photos

    If you can easily read passing license plates at night then it's of the same quality. And even if you didn't want or need a parking mode feature you've paid the same price as a mid-range Blackvue camera that does have an outstanding parking mode. And most people install dashcams to capture...

    Are these still part of the premium interior package? Tesla's website configurator doesn't clearly show these headrests as being moveable.

    TOPFIT Customized Dash Cam - My Review/Videos/Photos

    Video quality is less about 1080p or 4K resolution and more about bit rate, especially at higher vehicle speed & night vision. Anything approaching the 8-10 bps rates are what you want which is a direct function of the image processor being used. I've seen even 720p cameras with 10bps rates...

    TOPFIT Customized Dash Cam - My Review/Videos/Photos

    Correct, no need to remove the factory cable channel or run a second channel, unless you plan on installing a read camera, in which case you will need to run a video cable for that second camera to the back of the car..

    TOPFIT Customized Dash Cam - My Review/Videos/Photos

    Don't bother with this or any cheap Chinese dashcams. Stick with the better quality and bigger name Korean-made dashcams (e.g. Blackvue, Thinkware, Viofio...) instead. You can research and buy one of these at Our Dash Cam Collection. Most run in the $250-350, depending upon make/model, but offer...
