    Supercharger - Hamilton, TX

    Yeah, Tesla posted the Hamiliton site as "coming soon" location on their "Find Us" page several months ago. The community here stays on top of Supercharger news, particularly when the sites show up on Tesla's page and when permits are filed with TDLR (which sometimes happens without a "coming...

    Supercharger - Hamilton, TX

    Yay, finally. I've been looking forward to this one ever since it popped up on the "coming soon" map. Gives me a more direct route to Waco/Temple from Abilene.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Well, that and that area is heavy in the agriculture and oil industry so everyone, has trucks. Especially outside of Lubbock in all the smaller towns and communities. EVs aren't seen as being able to meet the needs for a lot of the people up there. The sentiment I've seen from people up there...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Don't know about EA, ChargePoint or any other operators except Tesla. Tesla currently has a small temporary Supercharger at the Lubbock service center with a larger, more permanent one coming to a new Toot'n Totum travel center on the SE side of Lubbock by US-84 and Loop 289 junction. The...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Not sure why the permitting is taking so long for the Supercharger's host site @ the Zenith AVE Toot'N Totum but it had a little movement recently. The "Plat Recording Review" task passed on 12/16. Not sure if this is a normal thing or not but it feels like to me that the host site has taken a...

    Supercharger - Hamilton, TX

    I saw a small update regarding the Hamiliton Supercharger in the North Texas Owners Club Facebook Group. Not sure if the OP of that post is a TMC member but they said they talked to Hamiliton city official, and that official said they know about the Supercharger coming to town and expect early...

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    They must have just started. I stopped at the Temple Buc-ees on 11/27 and there was no signs of any construction yet.

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    I was in Waco last weekend, and it looked like the I-35 construction was done. At least, coming from the south, I drove from Temple to the Waco SC and didn't hit any construction. The north bound lanes were all open.

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    It's big, but needed. I don't drive up and down I-35 much since I'm not in East Texas very often (It's East Texas from my perspective anyway 😝 ) but the couple of times I have been over there in the last year, both the Waco and Abbott SC's were full on the strech between Austin and DFW.

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    Yep, I live in Abilene so I'm familiar with a lot of the roads around here. There aren't any "nice" roads down to Austion/San Antionio area from here. There are a hodgepodge of TX and US Hwys going through central Texas, but the road conditions are highly variable. US-84 will get you a good...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    The current permit status on 7012 Zenith Ave, as of 10/26, is that it is still stuck in Subdivision Development Planning stage. The most recent movement is that the drainage analysis review passed on 10/7/2022 after failing twice before that. That may have been what has held up any movement on...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Yep: Buc-ee’s to build a $30M pit-stop in Amarillo next year
  13. Talmen

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    No TDLR permit yet. It hasn't been officially confirmed but the Supercharger is most likely going in at the Buc-ees there. Most TX Buc-ees are getting Superchargers.

    should I not get the South Korean CCS1 combo adapter?

    I was thinking that too last week when I was looking at how the store page worked. I knew they would have to do something since most old cars and smaller quantities of newer ones didn't have the CCS enabled charge port ECU. I like that they strait up tell you if you have it or not in the store...

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I just took a trip out to this Supercharger to check it out since I haven't been to it since it went live, and I had no issues. Came in at 15% SoC and got 250kW for a little bit before it ramped down as the SoC went up. Anyway, unrelated to my charging, I noticed something really weird. There...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    We're pretty sure one of the locations will be at the soon to be built Toot'n Totum on the SE side of Lubbock at US 84 and TX Loop 289. I don't know where the second site is planned. The most recent permit movement for that US 84 location was on 6/28. It's still in the planning/development...

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    Yep, I agree with you about the infrastructure. I've been seeing a lot more EV's in general in our area, not just Tesla's. I have two co-workers that have Mach-E's and I'm seeing some of the Kia and VW EVs around town too. Have yet to see an F150 lighting but I'm sure there are some. They don't...

    Ohh hi! You're the first person in Abilene (besides me) I've seen on here!

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I think you missed some of the later posts. This SC site is open now. It shows up in the car's nav and I've seen confirmations in a Facebook group that I'm in that this site is working.
  20. Talmen

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I don't know, that may be pushing it, at least going up there. I Drive up to Lubbock/Levelland from Abilene in our Model Y LR quite often for family and we can leave Abilene at a 100% SoC and still have to hit Sweetwater (or Lubbock SC now that it's open). That Sweetwater to Lubbock leg can be...

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    Clyde SC is open now. It shows on the car map, and I've seen confirmation from some other people in the North Texas Tesla Owners Club group on Facebook that this is working. I have not personally been out yet to test but I'm pretty confident it's open. @Chuq @Big Earl @corywright

    Supercharger - Temple, TX

    New listing on Tesla's "Find Us" page is showing a Supercharger coming soon to Temple, TX in Q1 2023. While their timing can always be a little (or lot) off, I have a hunch that this one is going to be at the Buc-ees there. The Temple store is listed on the authorization paperwork Tesla got from...

    Supercharger - Hamilton, TX

    Usually, construction isn't far behind a TDLR permit. I know there are some exceptions, but the 4 banger at the Lubbock Service Center and the one in Clyde were in construction within a month or two of the TDLR permit. I don't know of any sites going up without being listed on TDLR first. Not...
  24. Talmen

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I know what store you're talking about. That would be convenient for drivers coming up and down US-83/84 but is a bit out of the way for I-20 travelers and I'd figure Tesla would want to locate at least the first one near the interstate.... but with a SC only 10 miles away in Clyde now, they may...
  25. Talmen

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I promise, you'd hear no complaints from me. While I can charge at home, I know not everyone can and I'm starting to see a surprising number of Tesla's driving around Abilene. Clyde is still a bit far out to ask someone to drive if they need to top off while in and around Abilene. You'll burn up...

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    They will probably be open soon. The install looks mostly buttoned up, so I bet they are just waiting on the city inspectors to give it the go ahead and/or for the power utility to finish up their work but it looks like the big pad mounted transformer is in place and I didn't see any open...

    That was quick, thanks!

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    Wow!! I went out earlier to check the site and was super surprised. They not only have made a lot of progress but there are a lot more stalls than I thought there would be! There are going to be 20 v3 stalls. Not sure who to tag to update supercharge.info but I guess the Clyde, TX entry needs...

    I was planning on driving out tomorrow after work to look.

    should I not get the South Korean CCS1 combo adapter?

    I think your right. My thought is that on the online store during checkout, Tesla will do a VIN check and will query the car through its API to see if its CCS enabled. If not, the store will either 1) setup a service appointment for the charge port ECU retrofit and you'll get the adapter after...

    Replacement Fob for Model S - how much did you pay for the fob and how much to program?

    The 3's, Y's, new S's and new X's can be programmed by the owner in the locks menu of the car as long as you have at least one valid key on you. To do this, you just need to buy extra Key Cards or Fobs on Tesla's website and then follow the in-car instructions to program it to your car. NOTE...

    should I not get the South Korean CCS1 combo adapter?

    Don't think so, I just think they figured out how to detect orders from people intending to export out of Korea and blocked them. If you go to the listing on the Korean store, it's still up an available. Tesla Korea Store Link: CCS 콤보 1 어댑터 Running the page through Google translate, it shows...

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    I live fairly close to Clyde, so I took a quick trip out earlier to see if there was any work being done yet. I think this may be under construction. Lots of trenches dug up with conduit being laid and what looks like a concrete pad getting ready to be poured. I did not see any "Tesla" specific...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Once the permits drop for the US-84 TnT location, we may want to start another thread for it and leave this thread as the Service Center location. Seems like all other Supercharger sites have their own threads, even when in the same city.

    Sentry Mode Live Camera View and Keyfob (DO NOT want to use phone as key)

    [Edit: Sorry about the necro, didn't see the age of the post at first, thought it was new.] Delete the phone key out of the list of keys in the car settings. Then it will stop working... Personally, I love the phone key. I use the phone key as my primary key but keep a key card in my wallet as...

    CCS Adapter for North America

    Be careful if you get that. At first glance, it doesn't look like the car has a way to lock the CCS1 connector to the adapter... Which is technically required to be standards compliant in the US. The official Tesla adapter (if and when you can get one) has a little pin that locks the CCS1...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Yep, noticed that when I was driving from TX to WI. And the one SC they have in OKC, was quite crowded and while I pulled in and got the last open stall, there was a queue to use it the rest of the time I was there. I felt bad since I needed to practically full charge on my way back to make it...
  38. Talmen

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Yes, it is, if you are coming from US-84 or I-27 but its right next to US-62. As said multiple times in this thread though, the Service Center charger is a stop gap until the real Supercharger is built. Right now, due to how sparse chargers are out in West Texas and the panhandle, anything is...

    San Antonio to Amarillo

    You can use the supercharger at the Lubbock Service center now. It's 4 stalls @ 250kW. It may or may not be on your maps yet, seems inconsistent from reports I've seeing. If not, just navigate to the Service Center address @ 6544 82nd St, Lubbock, TX 79424 There will be a larger Supercharger on...
  40. Talmen

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Yes, all that info is in the last page or two of this thread. There is a small Supercharger at Lubbock service center and it's 4 stalls @ 250kw max. It may not show in the car, but it shows in the Tesla app. The reason why it's being weird like this is that is this Supercharger isn't the...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Good, well that means they will probably keep it public then once the big one opens. Means Lubbock is looking at having at least 2 Superchargers.

    how to hide location tracking and dashcam from owner when renting a model 3 from Turo?

    Only the master account can add or remove drivers. To do that, the owner opens their app and goes to "Security" -> "Manage Drivers". From there, they can add and remove drivers. If you have an existing Tesla account, the owner should add the email associated with your Tesla account to their app...

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    The service center is pretty close to US82/62 but 5+ miles away from the closest access to I27 or US84. I think his metric was distance from the highway. The thinking goes that the more you have to drive off the highway into town to hit a charger, the less desirable it is for highway travel.

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    Good to know. Thanks. Thats a newish Valero station there. I drive by there from time to time. It doesn't even show on the Google Satellite images yet...
  45. Talmen

    Supercharger - Clyde, TX

    Haha, one in Clyde but they couldn't come the 10 miles over and put one in my home turf, Abilene? Don't get me wrong, I'm always for more superchargers... So my comment is more tounge-in-cheek :D As a side note, Is it possible that it's an EA site? Nothing about it specifically says Tesla.

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Interesting, second time we've heard of possibly two SC locations going in Lubbock. We're pretty certain one will be going in at 7012 Zenith with the new Toot'n Totum there but the second location isn't quite known.... I think Reddy has mentioned one possibly going in on Crickets (Buddy Holly...
  47. Talmen

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Well, these probably were meant to be for Service Center use only, not open to the public. They will just be opening them to public temporally until the primary station is built. Could they change their minds and leave them open, sure, but don't think that's likely with only 4 stalls since it's...
  48. Talmen

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    That may be true, but I believe these were not initially intended to be the "Lubbock" supercharger. I don't think the ones going in at the Service Center were not going to be publicly accessible. While Tesla may be opening them up to the public on a temporary basis due to delays in constructing...
  49. Talmen

    Supercharger - Lubbock, TX

    Guess the temporary ones will be at the Service Center then. I know that it wasn't the initial plan to install publicly accessible Superchargers at the Service Center but I guess the big delay in the actual Supercharger's host site construction forced their hand a bit to put something in. I'm...

    Supercharger - San Angelo, TX (Maybe)

    It would be nice and be a good location. Currently, there is no official source for this. Only a rumor based on what a power utility employee told @reddy in Lubbock.
