    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    Every update I get, I check for Sentry Live View and nothing :( Really sucks to not have access to such a useful feature.

    Is my expectation of offset distance from curbs, curbed "traffic islands," roadside brush and other obstacles unreasonable?

    I really think the solution is what a cautious/responsible human driver would do. Most human drivers offset well away from road brush, traffic islands and curbs. Hardly anyone drives with the mindset let's see how close I can get :) I think FSD should offset well away from curbs, traffic...

    Tesla certified body shop recommendations in the DC/Maryland area?

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a Tesla Certified body shop in the DC/Maryland area? Preferably, close to Bethesda/Rockville. I know tesla now has a body shop in Rockville. Has anyone been there? I appreciate any recommendations for a skilled body shop that mostly works on high end...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    For all the toys and games added, live sentry view will be something that is super useful for everyone with a pre-2021 car with MCU 2.0.

    Am I wrong in wishing FSD Beta had a lane change confirmation option like NOA?

    I wish we could select the option to be more assertive when accelerating from a stop and less assertive with lane changes or be able to change those settings manually.

    Tesla certified Bodyshop Location around Bethesda/Rockville

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a Tesla Certified body shop in the Bethesda/Rockville area? I know tesla now has a body shop in Rockville. Has anyone used them? I'd like to take the car to a shop that works on high-end cars with lots of experience and can do a great job color matching...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    I wish we had any news on when pre 2021 cars with MCU 2.0 can expect to have access to Live View.

    Anyone else have any experience with the Rockville Tesla body shop?

    Late 2016 / Early 2017 S Owners: How Are Your Daytime Running Lights Holding Up?

    Thanks! This is useful to know. Is this covered by the factory warranty as well as the ESA extended warranty? Do the G revision lights perform better? The lights in my car suck compared to the bi-xenon lights I had in my 2007(!!!) E550. I had the service center aim them a bit higher and that...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    Is there a technical reason why it can't work in pre 2021 cars with HW 2.0/FSD3?

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    Just got the new update and sad to report no Sentry View with HW 2.0 and FSD 3.0 :(

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    I just received the new Android update that supports Live View and my firmware version should have Live View support from what I gather but unfortunately the option to turn on Live View is not visible. I really hope they enable this feature for MCU 2.0 cars made before 2021. This is such a...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    Could someone please let us know if Live View works on pre 2021 cars with HW 2.0? I would not know for a while because they will have to merge that code with FSD Beta. This is one of the biggest features I've been waiting for and I really hope it is available fleetwide as long as you have HW 2.0.

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    I can actually handle DC traffic just fine. Helps to have a bit of extra power in case that's needed :) I do take Uber/Lyft sometimes but that's mostly if I don't feel comfortable with the parking situation or I drive to a part of town that's sketchy. Plan to buy a Kona EV next year for when...

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    Wow someone finally explained this in a way that could not be any clearer! Thank you. haha for all of us who thought we were engaging extra parking brake power by long pressing the parking brake :)

    what happened to Tidal and options for alternate streaming providers?

    Can you at least download high quality when on WIFI to play not on WIFI? I really wish the Spotify Player downloaded all playlists in highest possible quality. I sometimes have issues with communication handoff between my house WIFI and 4G when driving away and playing music. Spotify music...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    Could we expect Sentry Live Mode to work on pre 2021 cars with MCU 2.0 (And HW 3.0)?

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    The driveway was as steep as I remember. Maybe about 30 degrees but there was no issue. I long pressed the parking brake until I saw the red parking brake icon turn on and heard the parking brake engage. Still not sure what's so different with long pressing Park and not doing so because you...

    Where can I buy the OEM Tesla center wheel caps in silver?

    Thanks! I wonder if mobile service can drop off this part if they are in the area. Anyone had any luck having this covered under warranty? Whatever they made these center caps off of is not the least bit durable. All 4 center caps are delaminating and pealing and look so ugly.

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    Not just the icon but you hear something mechanically engaging when you long press on P. I wish I knew what that was and if that's different from just pressing Park for sure. Like you, I used to think long pressing Park engages "extra" brakes because of the extra sound I hear! :)

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    Okay you all have convinced me that the car should hold. Just to be on the safe side, I'm going to put two bricks at each rear wheel. Can someone explain to me though if the car by default does not engage the parking brake and long pressing "Park" is what engages the parking brake? If I don't...

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    Okay I'll just get a couple of wheel chocks then and remember to long press on Park to engage the parking brake. By default, does the car not engage the parking brakes? What brakes are engaged by default when Park is not long pressed? I'll be parking at an Ambassador's Residence in DC so if...

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    Thank! Is there any consensus that with engaging the parking brakes by long pressing Park, wheel chocks are unnecessary on a very steep driveway?

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    Good idea but not possible as the driveway is just about 1.5 car widths wide.

    Advice for parking Model S on a very steep driveway

    I have to park my car later this week on a very steep driveway for several hours and I want to be absolutely sure the car will not slide down. Am I worrying about something I should not worry about or should I buy a couple of wheel chocks from Amazon? Any recommendations? These are what I'm...

    Where can I buy the OEM Tesla center wheel caps in silver?

    My center wheel caps are starting to look really horrible as they delaminate and essentially start peeling away. They were already starting to peel when I took delivery of the car and I should have had them replace it at that time. Are these covered under warranty? How can I get these center...

    Waypoints, FSD, and the importance of being able to save routes with waypoints as favorites

    Wow this is GREAT news but the real value and use case for waypoints is for all the local drives we do with FSD Beta using our special/custom local routes so the drives can be repeated. My daily work commute for example takes a route quite different from the autogenerated route and it's oh so...

    Lucid Air 360 deg view.

    Except the repeater camera views are thumbnail sized small videos with no way to make then "full screen." People have been asking to see the repeater camera views in full screen mode for years since this feature was first released but we keep getting new games added to the car instead :) If you...

    Is my expectation of offset distance from curbs, curbed "traffic islands," roadside brush and other obstacles unreasonable?

    Yeah I'm really paranoid of curb damage because I've seen a few YouTube videos where that has already happened. I too am even more careful with parked cars, joggers, and cyclists. Especially for joggers and cyclists, I want the car to give them half a lane of clearance not just for safety but...

    Is my expectation of offset distance from curbs, curbed "traffic islands," roadside brush and other obstacles unreasonable?

    Then why have custom settings for Autopilot? Your post also misses the point that they are ALREADY allowing customization of a bunch of those attributes but as one of 3 different levels of behavior. My suggestion separates out the options they are already allowing as a broader options group. I...

    Lucid Air 360 deg view.

    Not having 360 view sucks. What sucks even more is how the ultrasonic stop counting down after 12 or 10 inches. So just when you are dealing with tight clearances for a tricks parking situation the ultrasonic sensors stop counting down and starts yelling and beeping STOP STOP STOP. When I pull...

    FSD Exiting Passing Lane is Driving Me Insane (Pun Intended)

    This is another reason why I wish they had an option for request lane change confirmation. For anyone who likes it the way it is can simply decide to not use that option. Another option I wish they had was an option to get out of the way from fast approaching traffic in the rear. This is...

    Washington Post: NHTSA is coming for Tesla's FSD Beta program

    Yup, imagine if our politics were somewhere in the middle and guided by logic. This is what happens when congressional districts are gerrymandered to essentially create the most hyper partisan representatives possible. I feel the majority of the country are somewhere in the middle but they are...

    Is my expectation of offset distance from curbs, curbed "traffic islands," roadside brush and other obstacles unreasonable?

    I probably fall under the more cautious category of FSD Beta users and I'm wondering if my expectation of offset distance from curbs, curbed "traffic islands," roadside brush and other obstacles is unreasonable. By this what I mean is that when I supervise FSD Beta, I essentially want to have...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    Wait. Live View is not available in pre 2021 cars even if they have MCU 2.0 and FSD HW 3.0?

    Lucid Air 360 deg view.

    What a bizarre statement. I bet they are as happy with their car as any Tesla owner and I wish the Lucid owners nothing but the best and may they love their cars at least as much as we love our Teslas. Wish the same for the lucky Rivian customers. The better question is why our Teslas don't...

    No Security View Live Camera option in my FSD Beta enabled Model S

    I don't think they have released this feature for Android users either and I really hope the Android version is updated in time for FSD Beta users receiving the Live View update.

    FSD = Flaky Student Driver

    I wish they would make automatic lane changes optional/require permission in FSD like they do with NOA with an optional. Those who like it the way it is simply can not use that option.

    [Intentional Hyperbole] How FSD Beta Tried To Kill Me Today

    Look we all get it. Just be mindful that with titles like that the natural result would be some article somewhere that talks about how on the forums customers are talking about how they were almost "killed." There will not be any nuance or context. When I drive with FSD Beta, I don't treat it...

    [Intentional Hyperbole] How FSD Beta Tried To Kill Me Today

    This is the way to go. Essentially hold the steering wheel where you would drive the car. If there is a significant deviation with FSD then there would be an automatic disengagement.

    FSD = Flaky Student Driver

    This is something I wish people who are obsessively clamoring for "single stack" Autopilot and FSD would understand. I WOULD NOT want single stack Autopilot and FSD until FSD drives as predictably and consistently as Autopilot. IMO they have refined Autopilot to a point where most of the time...

    please recommend quality all season 19" for S.

    Apparently they specifically made extreme cold weather improvements with Pilots Sport AS4. But for the kind of weather we have in the DC area and Ludicrous launches in sometimes wet weather, I love how the AS 3+ perform. if I lived in Colorado, I'd get a dedicated set of winter tires and...

    Waypoints, FSD, and the importance of being able to save routes with waypoints as favorites

    Especially in the context of FSD, The benefit of Waypoints is greatly diminished if we are not able to save actual routes with waypoints. I take a special route to get to work that avoids construction, a couple of nasty intersections, and clogged up traffic. Come to think of it, for many local...

    please recommend quality all season 19" for S.

    The first and best upgrade I made to my car was getting rid of the easily damaged 21" wheels and replacing them with 19" wheels and Pilot Sport A/S 3+ tires. The tires can lock in for a Ludicrous launch even on wet pavement with no drama. Relatively quiet, comfortable, and I love them! Michelin...

    Inflated values

    The only unknown really is how inflation will affect car prices. The current prices could be the new normal with wage as well as cost increases coupled with shortage of batteries.

    Am I wrong in wishing FSD Beta had a lane change confirmation option like NOA?

    This is a good idea but I wish it was more assertive in boosting to the speed of traffic without being too assertive about changing lanes. Would love for them to separate out the driving behavior so you can set them individually. Acceleration boost for merging and when traffic resumes Stop...

    Am I wrong in wishing FSD Beta had a lane change confirmation option like NOA?

    The thing is in order for it to be more autonomous it needs to make better decisions about making lane changes and this information can come from the frequency drivers accept or reject lane change requests. Sometimes it likes to go around traffic that is stopped because the traffic up front is...
