    Supercharger - Lynchburg, VA

    Tesla Nav is still showing this SC as temporarily closed, but we just stopped by (3PM - Friday, July 10th) since we had to use the restrooms @ Sheetz anyway and it looks like it's back operational again. A Pepsi truck was blocking all the spaces but one, but that charger (next to the...

    Supercharger - KSC Cape Canaveral, FL (reserved for SpaceX)

    Well, Elon promised me this about 6 months ago, so hopefully soon? :)

    Supercharger - Chester, VA

    Well, guess I jinx'd this location with my last post. Saw this today, took up two spots the whole time I was there. At least one more spot was still open, so all good. I couldn't help but laugh at the situation... Probably the last car type I would have expected to see doing this. I mean...

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

    I can attest to this as well... I posted before that my 2nd LED went out at 48k miles, but we were on a road trip and by the time I brought it to the SC my MS was at 52k miles. I honestly didn't think it would be covered, but when I briefly mentioned that it happened prior to me hitting 50k...

    Supercharger - Chester, VA

    This SC is close to my work so I typically stop by a few times a month when I have some free time to charge & catch up on emails. I completely agree, if you have an extra 20 miles of range, go to the Glen Allen SC - which has 12 more stalls and a lot more stores within walking distance. With...

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

    2016 June MS75 - 78k miles. Had my DRLs go brown on the passenger side at 30k miles, and then the driver's side at 48k about 1.5 years ago under warranty. Recently (75k) my driver's side headlight would not turn on at all, but it seemed to resolve itself if I would shut down the car for 5...

    Full headlight failure - corrected by 'power off'?

    Thank you, good to know about the fuse configuration. The only odd part is the first time it happened - it remained out for the whole day (even after being parked/unattended for hours). Only once I did the full 5 minute power off at night @ the hotel did it clear. Tonight, I tried pulling...

    Full headlight failure - corrected by 'power off'?

    Yeah, I figured as such - and unfortunately unless headlights are covered by 'powertrain' issues - I don't think these are still under warranty at 80,000 miles? (not quite sure the warranty on replaced headlights)

    Train Horn in a Model S

    Nope, but PLEASE post a video of this "train horn" in action after you figure it out. Is this an anti-coal rolling device? :D

    Full headlight failure - corrected by 'power off'?

    Hello, I have a June 2016 MS75 and in late August 2019 I noticed that my driver's side headlight assembly wasn't turning on (this includes the LED DRL, blinker & HID). Since we were on a family roadtrip to Maine when this happened, I attempted every trick I could think of to fix it and found...

    Supercharger - Salem, Virginia

    Darn, was really hoping this SC would be ready for our family camping trip this weekend from RVA to Claytor Lake. Would shave almost an hour if we didn't have to go the I-64 --> I-81 route. Oh well, an extra hour in a Tesla is fine by me... ;)

    2019.15.11?

    Just received 2019.15.11 here in Virginia... Was not expecting this version - Tesla Stats app is showing this version at .0% right now...

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

    No doubt! Per my last note about a month ago, I encountered this issue on my driver's side DRL while I was on a road trip to Canada and went over my 50k during that trip. :( Thought I was going to have to pay $1000 to fix it, so I decided to not bring it in immediately. However, having my...

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

    Add me to the list... Had right MS (June 2016 delivery) headlight replaced around 30k for the DRL “brown out” issue. Just took our MS on a road trip and went over 50k a week ago and just noticed my left DRL is now half out too. :( At least I’m happy to see that range mode turns them off - not...

    Rated range loss

    Btw - what is the original estimated range for a new 75RWD? I originally purchased a 70RWD in June 2016 and later purchased the 75 software upgrade a few months later when Tesla dropped the price to $500. After the software update I did get ~239-240 for a brief period of time, but that...

    Rated range loss

    Interesting - I've had the same experience - the few times I've tried to rebalance it doesn't seem to help at all (if anything, it "locks" in a new lower estimated range). I just went over 50k miles in my June 2016 75 RWD and am getting 200-201 on my 90% charge and probably 222-223 on a full...

    Can’t Charge Above 97%?

    Same observations here... I originally noticed the issue during this past winter, but just did a full 100% supercharge about a week ago (and its been 80+ degrees here). Charging rates overall are much better too now that the battery is by default already warmed up. (as expected)

    Firmware update 2018.14.2

    Just received the nav update today here in central VA, so its definitely moved past CA! I did get 2018.14 back on 4/10 so it did take a week before I was queued up (was on 2018.6.1 prior).

    Firmware update 2018.14.2

    Btw- if you don't want to go the hardware route (although Google's Wifi mesh network is awesome) and your current router doesn't have these stats by default, if you have a compatible router you can always use a 3rd party firmware like DD-WRT to report on these stats. I'm sure there are some 3rd...

    Firmware update 2018.14.2

    I use Google Wifi at home and the app allows you to monitor network usage from specific devices over a specific time period - so its usually pretty obvious when your Telsa is up to something. When I checked this morning, it showed that last night around midnight I received 6GB of data and then...

    Software Update 2018.14

    The 2018.14.2 a888008e install went quickly (maybe 15-20 mins). Really nothing new to report but I did try abetterrouteplanner, Tesla Waze, and TezLab and all loaded quickly and without locking up this time around. As a side note, I'm now convinced that AP1 has been improved since 2018.6.1...

    Software Update 2018.14

    Looks like my car downloaded 11GB last night and sure enough another update was ready for me this morning (I’m assuming it’s 2018.14.2). First time I’ve received two updates in less than a week..
  23. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    I still haven't received the maps, but I did start receiving "Charge cable not fully secured. Please adjust the connection to improve charging" messages non-stop after I received 2018.14 (and before/after upgrading to v3.3.5 of the mobile app). I called the SC last Friday and they told me a...

    Software Update 2018.14

    You are probably right, fix a couple bugs and introduce a couple new ones as well. I just got off the phone with the SC and gave them all the info and they are going to run some remote diags in a few hours. Luckily I still had all the notifications on my phone so I was able to get them...
  25. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    I can confirm that with 2018.14 I'm getting constant "Charge cable not fully secured. Please adjust the connection to improve charging" notifications via the mobile app (as other have reported as well). It only happens when my charge level reaches the desired state (e.g.., 50%, 60%, etc...)...

    Software Update 2018.14

    Great call - I just noticed that my iPhone still was waiting to install the Tesla app update. I now have it installed and will test again later tonight. Thanks for the tip!
  27. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Hmm, I have all notifications turned off on the mobile app with the exception of the 'Car Alarm' & 'Software Update' (i.e., all Charging related notifications are turned off, except for the supercharger notifications of course). I have seen this notification before but only when it was due to...
  28. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Thanks Flyboy - good to know, that sounds like the same behavior I'm seeing because the notifications seemed to start around 3AM (which was probably around the time when my car reached full charge) and continued until 8AM. I'll play around with it so more tonight to see if I can get it to...
  29. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Just curious - has anyone on 2018.14 received multiple mobile app notifications when plugged in/charging? The past two nights I woke up to my phone having over 30 notifications that my 'Charge cable not fully secured. Please adjust the connection to improve charging.". The car was fully...

    Software Update 2018.14

    Just a heads up - it looks like any of the Tesla optimized browser sites that use geo location tracking may crash your MCU upon first time use. A few of you mentioned this with Tesla Waze, and I've confirmed the exact same behavior with abetterrouteplanner and TezLab. It happens right after...

    Tunein podcast Loading Error

    Well, at least I'm glad to report that the "Loading Error" issue is now fixed in 2018.14! Have been able to play all podcasts (even those that never worked, such as TechStuff, SYSK, etc...) and haven't seen the loading error or 'wheels in the sky' issue since I received the upgrade late...

    Software Update 2018.14

    Awesome - the hidden gems of this update (and 2018.12) keep on coming. Haven't seen this Nav screen yet, but I'll be sure to keep my car connected to WiFi every night until I do!
  33. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Yep, good catch - I had a feeling someone would pick up on that. Corrected myself on the Mega bits! :)

    Software Update 2018.14

    Just posted a quick video, here's the link: Sorry about the video quality, I just wanted to get something quickly out there so you all could see it.

    Software Update 2018.14

    YouTube actually loads pretty quickly! Too bad the browser still doesn't support video. Not even a BFR video...
  36. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Thank you for posting this. I could have sworn a lot of these sites didn't render properly but once you upgrade - you start to doubt yourself! I'm really surprised this 'feature improvement' didn't make the release notes. I can see why they might have not mentioned the TuneIn "Loading Error"...
  37. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    You had me scared for a second (blank page), but was missing the 's' in https when loading Waze. Tested TezLab and TeslaWaze and both worked fine...

    Anyone else having "Loading Error" with Slacker

    Believe it! I've had this issue for almost 2 years and have spent countless hours trying to troubleshoot it. Just received confirmation from another user in the 2018.14 thread that this release fixed their "Loading Errors" as well. Just a fair warning that this update takes 1.5 to 2 hours to...
  39. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Yes! When the page finally loads, scrolling seems to be much more fluid (no more mid-screen hangs or half-rendering)... Again, its not great (still slower than the browser on your smartphone!) but vastly improved. I was even able to log into teslamotorsclub.com relatively quickly, which is...
  40. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    I just took my car out for a spin. Aside from fixing the "Loading Error" issues, the browse appears to be much faster (albeit still relatively slow) and pages are rendering much better. Another interesting thing I noticed was my LTE data speeds - WAY increased. I normally get 300-500Kbps...
  41. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    Give it some more time, I'm pretty sure mine took 1.5 hours (much longer than normal)

    Anyone else having "Loading Error" with Slacker

    OMG! IT IS FIXED!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I just received 2018.14 less than an hour ago. I normally don't get updates 'hot off the press' (I was on 2018.6.1 as of this morning) but I noticed on the ev-fw.com firmware tracker that only 5 people had reported having this update so far. There was nothing...
  43. SteelSully

    Software Update 2018.14

    There is something HUGE in 2018.14... Can anyone else please confirm? I normally don't get software updates ahead of the curve (I was at 2018.6.1 as of an hour ago), but I've been plagued with the "Loading Error" issue with TuneIn & Slacker, especially for podcasts. Many podcasts like Stuff...

    Supercharger - Chester, VA

    Just an update - the Wawa renovation is complete and fully re-opened. Bathrooms now available too!
  45. SteelSully

    Supercharger - Chester, VA

    Yeah, with the Wawa closed under renovation it is worth skipping this SC for now and heading up to the Glen Allen location. The Chester SC does have a 'pseudo' 7-11 across the street which I've been able to grab a drink and use the restrooms - however, you have to cross (i.e. run across) a...
  46. SteelSully

    IT Works!!!

    Awesome! I'm still on 50.2 and the TuneIn "Loading Error" (mainly with podcasts) is worse than ever. I'll keep my finders crossed that the next update makes things a little better.

    Can’t Charge Above 97%?

    Hi FlyingCookie, I'm curious if you ever took your car in to get this checked out? I stopped by a local SC today and arrived with a very low SOC (about 1%). I decided to charge to 100% to rebalance (which I haven't done before), but once I got to 96% it was only charging at the rate of 1KWh...
  48. SteelSully

    Supercharger - Richmond, VA

    Was heading to the Chester SC today when I noticed this new SC appeared on the map so I decided to check it out. Only had 1% SOC when I arrived (took a bit of a gamble that it was actually online!), and although the site is still well under construction it looks like they have about 12 of the...
  49. SteelSully

    Supercharger - Chester, VA

    Oh yeah, always a lot of icing going on at the Chester SC. Not really a problem at the moment because I've never seen more than 3 Teslas (myself included) at this SC, but could become more of an issue once the gigafactory gets over its battery production issues (TSLA down 7.12% today - ouch!)...
  50. SteelSully

    Tunein podcast Loading Error

    Yep, unfortunately most of your initial observations are pretty accurate... 1) I came from a 2002 BMW 330Ci with HK sound too, and I agree the basic MS sound system doesn't compare. I quickly realized it was severely lacking on the low frequency end and soon had an aftermarket JL TW3 12" sub...
